Question about EliteGroup P4VMM2 Motherboard
Problem is that after adding the 1 GB pc3200 184 pin dimm memory I'm getting a continueous beeping upon booting up the PC. It finds the additional memory ok but then within a few seconds it beeps.
I even took out the 1 GB memory to leave only the 256 but the result is the same
On the board there's 2 DDR1 slot and 2 DDR2 slots.
Intel Pentium 4 2.4mhz
If you go to the ECS website, there is the option to download the manual for the motherboard (make sure you get the right version). The manual will point out which jumpers you have to move or remove to get the memory to work. Hope this helps

EliteGroup makes two mother boards, P4VMM2, (No Revisions) & (P4VMM2 revision 8.1). Since your question states your memory is 184 pin DIMM your board must be, v 8.1. What does not make sense is the motherboard has two memory slots total.
(If you have 4 memory slots on the MB than the MB can not be the P4VMM2). Below is the link for the P4VMM2 (v8.1).
The P4VMM2 v 8.1 can only use, two Double Data Rate (DDR) SDRAM memory modules. These sockets support up to 1GB system memory using 184-pin unbuffered non-ECC PC2100 or PC1600 DDR DIMMs. The two DIMMS you are using must run at the same speed.
Example PC2100 266MHz. OR PC1600 266MHz.
Continuous beeping means the memory is not seated correctly.
When using only one DIMM it should be inserted in the slot closest to the CPU. Re-check your memory. Remove & reseat. Make sure the latches snap closed on each stick of memory while inserting. Below is all of ECS P4VMM motherboards;
Good luck sysa007!
