Se7520bd2 - I installed 4 GB of ram (2 sticks) I added later another two ram chips the same mobel. The M/B is not recognizing the 2nd set? My Emial is

1) unless your operating system is 64 bit, your computer can only use 3 GB RAM maximum, so 4GB is a waste of time.

If you already had two identical sticks of RAM, chances are your BIOS is setup to recognise twin channel RAM is it has larger bandwidth so it is quicker. To use two channels your RAM must be identical in both channels, clearly if 3GB is the maximum you have a lopsided config and you have to swap the BIOS to single channel RAM.

Of course if you have already checked the BIOS rather than windows, and it still only sees 2GB RAM, the problem is a different one.......

Problems with 3 brand new PC 133 512 MB RAM in Netvista 6794

That last RAM probably is good. Many motherboards have problems using many different memory. All of the memory you have should be at least identical to ensure that they work. When RAM run at different speed or require a little more voltage, they will not let your motherboard boot. You can try mixing up the order you put the RAM in. Try putting the last RAM in the first slot by itself, the motherboard should boot. Then try the rest.

Also, whenever you add or change hardwares, you should clear the CMOS/BIOS settings.

My vga port will not work ?

IF the vga port is onboard on the motherboard you have the option to add a vga device to one of the 32 bit add in card slots. Once the add on vga card comes up you can see if the operating system sees the onboard card that is not seemingly working. Then post here what you see afterwards

Tyan Tomcat i915 Motherboard (no display, boot up problem)

Well, first off, make sure that it's plugged in. I'm guessing that you already did that, and already checked that the PSU's powerswitch was set to " on ".

If your PSU can run at more than one voltage, I would check to see which one it's set to. If you're from the United States, chances are that it should be set to " 115 ".

If the computer makes any beeping noises when you try to power it on, that could very well tell you exactly what the problem is if it's a dead piece on the inside. Just listen to the beeps and look online if you can find out what the beeping error code means.

I hope this helps!

Blue screen on start-up. Mobo SIS-741 Chipset SIS741GX Rev 03

This problem can be caused by several things. First, are the memory chips exactly identical (brand, type, size, etc.)? If not, that will definitely cause the problem. Second, how many memory slots are there? If you have four, check the manual and make sure you're putting the memory in the correct slots. Some Mobo's require that you put chips in slots A1 and B1 and not A1 and A2. Also, some Mobo's have DDR slots and DDR2 slots, so make sure you're putting the right kind of memory into the proper slots. Some people fudge the memory by putting 400 mhz memory into slower slots, and that works one chip at a time - but if you install a second, identical chip, the system will fail. If all else fails and you've met these conditions, check the type of memory to be sure of the proper fit (use manufacturer's recommended brands and numbers) or try a different chip in the second slot. One chip could be bad.

Try setting the boot in the bios to only hdd(on all options if it prompts you to add a secondary).

Also had a couple of problems that sound like they could be from the same root that were an issue with the memory or a bios clash with the video/graphics card.

Try and get into the bios setup before it starts to initiate windows - usually the "del" key but it should tell you on startup if you watch carefully - i use an almost identical motherboard with similar peripherals and have had no problem when it was all set up, but i remember setting up being a bit complicated, but not exactly how.

check this site - is avout problem entering windows - you know the symptoms better than me

hopefully this will help :)
