Question about E-Machines T3990 (RBT3990) PC Desktop
I purchased (2) 1 gb memory sticks both the same. They are 1gb ddr400. I can install either one or the other with one of the original 256mb sticks and it turns on fine. I tested both 1gb sticks and they work. When I install both 1gb sticks together though my computer screen will not turn on. My computer is rated for 2gb. It is a emachines t3990. It has an intel motherboard d865gvhz. I was told a BIOS update may fix my problem, however I go through all the steps and when it reboots it says it was unsuccesful installing it. Any assistance would be great, and if you need more info let me know. Thanks
Try removing the cmos battery and put it again and booting up.. since you have bought same kind of ram i dont think it could be a problem.also check for the jumpers in *********** board where you can reset your bios. be sure to read *********** boards manual before this
