I added a VDATA Memory Expert DDR400(30 1g X16
s/n608jh (vdbgc1a16) The other number on the stick is MDGVD6G314750B1E09 in the thrid slot. When I try to start up, there is a voice message saying "System failed memory test".

I've tried inserting the card both ways,but neither way works.

Why does memory upgrade for biostar k8m800-mam2 motherboard cause memory error beeps?


I would verify that the memory you're using is actually working properly.
Try to boot to the new stick and see if it works.
If not, it doesn't work.
If it does, you may need to replace the original stick with the same stick that you are trying to use now.
Use this site as a guide.

What is post code AF


Code AF usually refers to memory especially if it comes with a long beep instead of the normal quick beep.
If you have recently added memory remove the new stick and reboot. If all is well then the new stick is not compatible with the old one or with the motherboard.
If no memory has been added recently then try removing your memory stick and re-inserting it, it may not be seated firmly in place or, if you have more than one stick, fit them one at a time to rule out any compatibility problems, or
errors with one or other of them.
Another thing that will throw a code AF is the processor, make sure the processor is firmly seated under the cooling fan and that there is the proper amount of cool seal between the fan and the top of the processor. BE VERY CAREFULL when working near the processor as a static discharge can and will destroy the processor and don't bend any of the pins on the processor base. If not familiar with working with a processor DON'T. Take it to someone who is.

My dv6000 dont start . i have black screen with one long beeb and two short beebs


HI friend,

one long beeb and two short beebs Indicates a video error has occurred and the BIOS cannot initialize the video screen to display any additional information,some couse of that issue is New hardware conflicting with old hardware or New hardware conflicting with old hardware or Connections not connected or connected properly or other hardware issue.Best solution is
If any new hardware has been recently added to the computer, remove that hardware to make sure it is not the cause of your issue. If after removing the new hardware your computer works it's likely the computer is either not compatible with the new hardware or a system setting needs to be changed to work with the new hardware device.Remove any disks, CD's, DVD's that are in the computer and if any USB devices (ipods, drives, phones, etc)
before all that please
Make sure all fans are running in the computer. If a fan has failed (especially the fan for the CPU) your computer could be overheating and/or detecting the fan failure causing the computer not to boot.
If you continue to to receive the same problem with all the above hardware removed attempt to disconnect the RAM from the Motherboard and turn on the computer. If the computer has a different beep code or if your computer was not beeping and is now beeping turn off your computer and try the below suggestions. Making sure to turn off the computer each time you're adding and removing the memory and then turning the computer back on to see if the suggestion resolves the issue.
  1. Re-insert the memory into the same slot.
  2. If you have more than one stick of memory remove all but one stick of memory, try rotating through each stick.
  3. Try one stick of memory in each slot.
Thanks,

Please rate me.......

Please .. memory types used by D915GAV ?


I'm not sure where you saw that in the manual. I could not locate that it. However that could mean that it's just a earlier printing.
In any event if your going to add memory to the board it's best to use the one that has already been tested and approved for use in it. I would probably say you could disregard the list with most motherboards but Intel being what it is, they are rather fussy about this kind of thing. Unless you already have the memory stick in which case give it a try. If it registers it great if not switch it around to another slot. If that fails threaten it with free fall from a second story window. Below is a link to the approved memory sticks for your board.

Did not boot and with 3 beep sound


Remove added memory
If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.
  • Additional information about determining the type of memory to use in a memory upgrade can be found on document CH000910.
Open computer and reseat memory
Sometimes when the computer is moved and/or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.
Swap memory location
If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.
If you have more than one stick of memory try removing all but one stick of memory and boot the computer. If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory.
Try another computers memory
If you have access to another computer that uses the same type of memory try using its known good memory in your computer.
If another computers memory works you know that you have bad memory. If another computers memory does not work and it is compatible with your computer unfortunately your motherboard and/or the slots on the motherboard are defective causing it to be unable to properly read the memory, which means the motherboard will have to be replaced.
Replace memory
If you've determined or believe that the memory in y our computer is bad we suggest that you replace it.

Adding memory to tx pro mainboard


You do not say what memory you are trying to install.

The ASUS P4S800D motherboard has four memory slots that hold DDR PC2700 or DDR PC3200 with a maximum of 1GB per slot, so the installed maximum is 4GB.

DDR memory is generally available in 128MB, 256MB, 512MB and 1GB modules. If you already have memory installed, it must be at least 128MB so you cannot add modules to 'bring memory to 128'.

Either you have a different motherboard and posted in the wrong section, your memory calculations are wrong, or you have used older PC-133,PC-100 or PC-66 memory instead of DDR. The last is unlikely as older SDRAM has two notches and won't physically fit into a DDR slot that only has one notch.

Please re-post with the specific motherboard model just to confirm and a list of the memory modules you are trying to use.
