Question about Biostar : NF4ST-A9 Socket939/nForce4/DDR400/SATA/ATX Motherboard (MOTBI15)
I have a biostar NF4ST-A9 with a AMD64 3200 and 2.5 gigs of ram. This system has worked fine for the last eight months, but only recently have I had some major problem with the setup. When I turn on my computer it will begin to boot up, but sometimes while detecting the ram it will just turn itself off. After about 4-5 times of turning off, it will finally begin to load up and stay on until the next time I boot. I got so sick of this problem that I took apart my computer and when I did, I saw that the RAM in my computer had been damaged along the connectors. Not only had they corroded, but they also have burn marks that stop them from connecting correctly. The RAM is only from Christmas, so its not like its really old. I am just wondering if anyone knows of issues with biostar boards burning or damaging RAM, and what I should do to solve this.
Hi clean out the dimm slots with compressed air, if you do not have access to a compressor then you can buy a compressed can of propellent at a computer shop.Fit new RAM making absolutely sure that it is seated properly in the dimm slots. A problem like you have described is normaly caused by the RAM working loose or not properly installed in the first place. Regards mistyman

Very rarely motherboard can cause burn to RAM unless most likely the RMA quality itself had the relibility issue... change the RAM unless the burn is very severe.. you may need to change the DIMM connectors (if you have the right tools) like HOt air machine..
