In my experience if I cannot get a computer to boot after I have gone to the trouble of changeing out the board and CPU ,with known good ones, I suspect either something is shorting the board and I try it outside of the case or more likely the power supply is not preforming correctly.    A third possibility,though unlikely if it was running before,is that something is not hooked up properly.

Installing sodimm 2x2gb ram for acer aspire 5504wxmi will not boot but each 2gb installed seperately will boot. Why wont the BIOS recognise 4gb even before the OS could boot? is there a fix?


The motherboard chipset, and more specifically the Northbridge chip, will Not support 4GB of Ram memory.

The Acer Aspire 5500 series of Notebook PC's, (Which the Aspire 5504wxmi Notebook PC is one of the series), uses an Intel 910GL motherboard chipset,

The Intel 910GL motherboard chipset only supports 2GB of Ram Memory,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#9xx_Chipsets_and_3.2F4_Series_chipsets


Primer:
The motherboard chipset technology used in your Acer Aspire 5504wxmi Notebook PC, consists of a Northbridge chip, and a Southbridge chip.

[ Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_circuit

The Northbridge chip is an Intel 82910GL {Part Number}
The Southbridge chip is an Intel 82801FB {Part Number} It is also referred to as ICH6.

Scroll the above page down towards the bottom, until you come to the heading -
Southbridge 9XX and 3/4 Series chipsets, for information on the Southbridge chip ]


The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of a computer.
Processor, Ram Memory, and High-speed graphics.

{AGP and PCI-Express graphics technology are High-speed graphics.
A graphics card inserted into a PCI slot, or a graphics chipset using the PCI bus, is NOT high-speed graphics.
Integrated Graphics is Not High-speed graphics }

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of a computer.
Anything connected to the PCI bus, Integrated Graphics, IDE bus, SATA bus, USB bus, Ethernet, and Audio,
(Sound)

I invite you to reinstall the Ram Memory the Aspire worked with, go online, and download the tiny, free program - CPU-Z
This tiny program will tell you exactly what motherboard chipset is on the Aspire's motherboard.

This is information on CPU-Z, and shows you the GUI of CPU-Z,
(Graphics User Interface),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/CPU-Z

Click on the screenshot of CPU-Z on the upper right of the page. (Enlarges it)

CPU stands for Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or Processor for short.
When you open CPU-Z it automatically opens to the CPU tab.

If you click on the Mainboard tab, you will find out in-depth information on your motherboard.
(Mainboard is proper speak for Motherboard)

CPU-Z homepage,

http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html

CPU-Z download page for newest version,

http://www.cpuid.com/downloads/cpu-z/1.58-setup-en.exe

Need help in downloading, and installing CPU-Z, post in a Comment.
Also what the tabs are, and how to understand what you are looking at.

Regards,
joecoolvette

(If an online entity suggested an Acer Aspire 5504wxmi will support 4GB of Ram Memory, they are wrong.
Find out what exact motherboard chipset is on the motherboard. This will support my statement )

Trying to upgrade cpu.


Here's a direct link to the service manual of the NetVista 8303-21A:
http://download.lenovo.com/ibmdl/pub/pc/pccbbs/netvista_pdf/24p2969.pdf

On page 13 of this manual:
Microprocessor (varies by model type): Intel® Pentium® 4 processor with 256 KB or 512 KB of internal L2 cache memory and Intel NetBurst™ micro-architecture.

It seems that the computer's motherboard does not support Intel P4 processors with more than 512 KB of internal L2 cache. That's why your P4 2.8GHz/1M/533 Prescott processor did not work.
You will have to either buy another processor with 512 KB L2 cache, or replace your motherboard with one which supports the new processor.

PC HAS POWER BUT WONT BOOT


this is a clarification request as well as a possible solution... are you using the onboard video, or a video card via pci, agp? because if you are using a new video card or a new motherboard you may have to use the onboard video temporarily to boot up and install drivers for the motherboard, then plug in the video card and it should boot up so you can install the drivers for it.... sometimes this is not the case though, i have had to trick a computer into doing this before which is not a smart idea at all...

Home built 4 yr old pc wont boot


You have voice message telling you CPU test failed , but does it BEEP at all ? if you have a Beep code then replace the CPU fan ( when CPU gets too hot it will either shut down or the PC will not boot up at all )
