It could be one of the following:
1. You fried the motherboard when you replaced the RAM. This is the worst case scenario, but it does happen. In any case, don't replace your PC yet!
2. Your system was off too long, and the battery drained. This does actually happen, believe it or not. The battery stores the computer's BIOS setup information and if it drains (goes dead), the computer doesn't know what to do when you turn it on. The first signs of a draining battery are usually time being lost on the clock (slowing), or "C Drive" errors/warnings that come up but the system is still booting up all the way too. If you've had either of these happening before you added the RAM (and they're things you'd probably notice), then I'd suspect the battery.
3. You unknowingly knocked something loose when you were dealing with the RAM. I only did this once, because it took me FIVE HOURS to figure out. To fix this, be very careful and make sure you are GROUNDED. Don't touch anything on the motherboard that you don't have to, but for all plugs and other removable connectors, make sure they are snug. Do the same with all of the drives while you are in there.
3. The obvious question is: Did you purchase the correct RAM? I'm assuming you already verified this (if not, it could be the problem). If the RAM is ok, are you sure your motherboard can handle the addition? There's a limit to the amount of RAM any motherboard can recognize. Putting too much RAM in can confuse your computer.

There are other reasons, but I'd hafta vote for the battery. It just sounds like your computer is turning on and doesn't know what to do. If it is the battery, it's very simple to replace. You will find it on the motherboard - it looks like a watch battery on steroids (it's about the size of a penny or nickel). Take it out and take it to your friendly computer store. A new battery is about $8 or so.

CONTINOUS BEEP WHEN COMPUTER IS TURNED ON


To do this properly I need to know which model your computer is - is it an eMachines MB.NBK09.003 Motherboard El1850 Desktop S775 G41T-Ad ? I need this to try to establish the BIOS seller and version. You might try finding the BIOS version by (continuously) tapping the F1, F2 or esc key (or possibly another)immediately after you turn on. The "splash screen" that appears aftrer you turn on may have some lettering which tells what key to enter the BIOS.
In the absence of this information here are two suggestions
EMachines that beeps constantly and won boot up
if it is the above it is serious and the computer will need serious (difficult) repair, or main board replacement or whole unit replacement (by which I mean new computer)

The other suggestion was about the RAM not being properly in place, but I doubt this as this usually gives a different beep code

EMachine W3507, will not boot after adding 2GB of memory. (2x 1GB; one in each slot). It will boot with one stick, but only if the original 512MG is in slot 1. The 512MB is not recognized.


Where they purchased as a working pair some motherboards will only accept working pairs>?
Make sure RAM modules are of same brand and type try one ram module at a time in the working slot closest the cpu if both work individually they are not a working pair

Computer wont boot all the way up


There are several reason why a computer won't boot up. First you need to figure out if your Power Supply is working, if your not a computer expert, you can try another PSU to test. Or you can use a PSU tester to test if your PSU is still working. If not, clean and reseat your RAM, if you have 2 RAMs, remove each RAM then try 1 RAM at a time, and try to seat the RAM to different slot. If not luck, clean and reseat your graphics card. If you have a built-in video port, remove your graphics card. Still won't boot? try resetting the CMOS. This might fix the problem.

Acer desktp internal ram installation needed


I'm a bit confused....did you have all four of these in the ACER and are trying to put the 2x1GB into the Emachine? And that the 2x1 GB wouldn't work in the Emachine but they did in the ACER and that the 2x512 Acer cards worked in the emachine?

If that is what happened here is my best guess. The ACER MOBO will support 533/667/800 MHZ DDR2 RAM. The Emachine will only support 533 RAM. Iys possible the 2x1GB are either 667 or 800 MHZ and are not compatible with the Emachine but will work in the ACER.

Added 2 1GB memory to a T5048. Will not boot. do I need to upgrade the BIOS? Also want to disable on-board graphics and add a pci graphic card.


There are two variants of the T5048 One uses DDR PC3200 ram the other uses DDR2 PC5300
Should be able to look at the old ram and it should say on it what it is. If it doesn't, take out the new, put in the old ram and go here http://www.crucial.com/store/drammemory.aspx Run the "Scan My Computer"
Some computers will have a setting in BIOS to disable on board video although eMachine are very low end and probably don't offer that. Shouldn't need to just install your video card and plug your monitor into it. It should work just fine without disabling on board.

I have a dell dimension 4600. It has original memory cards installed. 2 256 MB for a total of 512 ram. I recently tried to install 1 GB memory card. When I start up computer it beeps several times,...


hello

several beeps in a system is caused by a memory issue -- 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.

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.

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.

the specs can be found at this link
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4600/en/4600i/sm/specs.htm

the system you have is upgradable to 4G of RAM, and this RAM must be installed in equal pairs
so if you have 4 slots to insert memory in (assuming you will retain the 2 256M) , you must install the other slots by 2 512M, 2 1G or 2 2G DIMMs -- make sure you isntall exact same DIMMs, dont mix memory makers or specs, other than what Dell specifies

memory type must be
PC2700 (333-MHz) or PC3200 (400-MHz) DDR SDRAM
(non-ECC)

i hope this helps --

Installing radeon s9259 graphics card on a emachine t5010


Did you try to after you install the card to go into the control panel and install new hardware in the add new hardware. If I understand you, when you plug the monitor into the new video card it does not turn the monitor on, Even after you install the card and reboot your pc with the monitor plugged into the new device it don't come on, Make sure the old one is disabed in the device manager and it should work, If Not I need somemore information, You should not have to have changed it in the bios, you may want to change that back to the way it was, the radeon is compatible with the emachine and should work just by installing and plugging into it,Try that see what happens.Hope it helps Happy Holidays Just write back here if that don't work and I 'll figure it out for you,
