Althogh dont know how you reset the ram, unless you mean bios, check that the onboard sound in the bios is dissabled, then remove the card and put in a different pci slot and then if the drivers are already installed it should be found and installed automatically after a reboot of the system. As for your neighbours husband, i shall try to seek approval

Continuous short beep when start... no boot up, already change the power supply and few rams for testing, but no change. should the motherborad or cpu fail?

processor failure does not produce beeping sounds, are you sure that your extra rams are working? try to change the video card if you have the removable one. then if you're using the built in video card, try removing the sound card and modem cards or lan cards.beeping sounds is only for ram errors and any other hardware but not limited to motherboards. by the way try to clean the slot for rams, video cards and others. this would help.

Just got my Mongoose 26" Vanish about a week ago.

Fix it. Flats are a fact of life. Learn to deal with them. carry a pump, a tube and a patch kit.

Google "fix flat tire bike" for how-to's. Always try to determine the cause of the flat prior to removing the tube or you may just get another one.

When I bought this computer used, it worked fine for a couple months, then I began to notice multi-colored vertical lines on the screen. At first, there were only a couple lines. Then slowly but surely...

sound like you have two different problems the question mark is the computer can't find the hard drive. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica} p.p2 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 12.0px Helvetica; min-height: 14.0px}

Check for a failing hard drive

Trying booting from the Mac OS X install disc.

insert the Mac OS X install disc.

press the start button, while holding down the "C" key on the keyboard

Once you are running from the disc. go to Disk Utilities select the hard drive click the "repair permissions" button at the bottom.

If you get any red errors listed or it doesn't seem to finish repairing the permissions you have a failing hard drive and it will need to be replaced.

The vertical lines is one of two thing a failing LCD module of a failing video card.

Here is how to check which one it is.

connect an external display to it.

if the lines show on the external display is a video card. Unfortunately the video card is attached the logic board and the whole logic board will need to be replaced.

If the lines don't show up on the external display the LCD module will need to be replaced.

Motherboard specs

Hi dwman113,
Yes your Mach Speed MB will support 2x1 GB, Dual Channel Mode DDR2-800MHz, PC6400 memory modules. (Manual states the memory dimms should be paired).
Also known as matched memory.
Max Shared Video Memory is 256MB, refers only to the integrated built in video card.
Click this link to help you understand what CL stands for;
Small example. CL3 runs faster than CL5.
You can run any PCI-Express 16x graphics card & it can be rev 2.0. Graphics cards are backwards compatible which means it will also run at v1.0. You should not buy a SLI card because you only have 1 PCI-E x16 slot. To run SLI, (Hooking up 2 PCI-E x16 cards together viva a small SLI connector) your motherboard would need two PCI-E x16 slots & the board must support SLI mode & your's does not. Here is the main web site link for your Mach Speed MSA2-6100V MB.
If you have any more issues or questions just post it & we'll go from there.

Good luck dwman113!

If the laptop posts

(power on self test) and you see stuff on the screen, no matter how short , do the following: (this checks for a software problem)
  • when booting up press F8 and when you get to the menu, boot up into safe mode,
  • then restore the pc back to a date before you had the problem,
  • and/or remove any program you installed prior to you having the problem, if that don't work
  • Try a bootable anti virus disc use it to check for any viruses , if not try a recovery disc, or operating system disc ,
  • both disc's will try to access the hard drive.
  • if they do not work, (nothing has changed) nothing comes on the screen.

laptop does not post:
(then it is a hardware problem)
  • it may be that the screen has a problem and needs specialist's attention (cannot be done via text) but try the following first.
  • check battery is seated correctly and that the power pack is functioning,
  • if the battery has gone flat and the power pack is not working ,the laptop will not start.
  • Remove any hardware you may have installed prior to you having the problem.
  • remove the screw(s) holding the cover plate on the back of the laptop where the ram lives remove the memory sticks,
  • clean the gold edges both sides, with rubbing alcohol or a pencil eraser, and re-insert them, (not an ink eraser as it will do damage)
  • swap them around if you have more than one, try one at a time.
  • if you only have one, borrow one from a friend or try the ram in your friends laptop ,if that's possible,
  • or take the ram to your local pc shop and ask them to check it for you (they may do that for you)
  • if you can establish that the ram and power pack is ok,
  • and anti virus and recovery /system disc's do not work,
  • it may be that the motherboard has failed or as mentioned earlier the screen has failed
  • but in the case of the screen failing you should be able to hear noises from the hard drive when booting up.
  • Generally a dead hard drive would not stop the laptop from posting.
good luck with that and let me know how you get on.

Memory upgrade question

Yes that RAM should work fine even at the slower speed.

I have had terrible luck with Centon ram - I don't know why but they seem to have more failed chips than most brands.

If Compusa wont replace it see if they will refund you. Otherwise wait until Centon is open and at least you can warrantee it. See if they can swap for PC2-4200 to make sure of compatibility.

Worse case you can get Crucial (micron) RAM which almost always works at good prices from or directly from
