Question about Computers & Internet
So I bought all the parts for a brand new computer and came home and plugged everything in. I installed the ASRock 945GCM-S motherboard. Intalled 2 gigs of memory, an 80 gig IDE hard drive and a SATA DVD ROM. I plugged in my 350W PS to the motherboard and the DVD and Hard drive. I plugged the cables for the buttons on the front of the tower. I made sure the voltage on the back was set to 115 and I started it up hoping to see the BIOS soon, but it never showed up. I plugged in speakers to see if I could hear the POST beeps and restarted it but nothing. I need help! I don't know what I have done wrong or what is wrong with the parts I bought. Please help me soon!
The memory is the problem then, your board does not support it. From the specs page here: Supports Dual Channel DDR2 667/533, 2 x DIMM slots, Max. capacity up to 4GB
Change the RAM and it should work.
