Dear bro Wedei...first..i wanna to ask,did u know what does the RAM look likes?

Posted on Nov 28, 2013

Testimonial: "Hi, I know that RAM means Random Access Memory but on my D500 compaq desktop motherboard there are two empty "slot ins" or port, about 6 inches long.One has a label "DIMM 1" and the other is labelled "DIMM 2".Close to these two slot ins there is a note written like this, "2.5 v DDR Memory only".I dont know how RAM looks like but i think these are the places where one can slot in a RAM.Please tell me whether I am right or wrong.I know 'IT' by theory but i dont some of these gadjets physically.I know that BIOS is a built-in software and is found in ROM and I have read about how it functions. When I switch on the computer its beeping twice but there is no monitor display and the HDD LED is not showing.Its only the CD ROM LED which is ON and also some lights on the M/Board are working.You advised me to buy a new CMOS Battery because the computer has been unused for about 1.5 yrs because of dead power supply which I have now replaced.But I also think my M/Board is missing this RAM gadget,that is why I wanted to know more about this RAM so that people who repair computers can not cheat me and ask for more money.Please tell me more basing on what I have said(about RAM) and the problem I am facing.I have not yet bought the battery but I will, I will also buy the RAM if you advise me.There is also a 1.5v AGP port on the M/Board,can I plug in a video card on that if there may be a problem with the VGA port. God Bless you, Wedei."

I bought a 2nd hand compaq evo D500 desktop whose power supply was dead.I kept it unused for 1.5 years.Now I have bought another power supply which is working fine BUT nothing is diplaying on the...

Check that you hooked up all the power supply connections. Try a new motherboard battery as the old one may be dead and the bios is not working. You are evidently not getting a post beep signaling that the cpu, ram, video are good.

Try updating the BIOS from the location given below.

Compaq Evo D500 Ultra-Slim PC Desktop BIOS.


If the BIOS update doesnot work it probably should be a hardware issue. Check with Compaq Tech support if your system is in warranty.

The power turns on but it doesn't do anythigng else

It can be due to many factor

1.RAM not decting by Mainboard.
     remove the RAM & clean it's legs with a white paper and place it again & try.

2.SMPS failure
    Your power supply is not able to give the requirement of the PC due to mal-functioning.Replace the power supply & check.

3. BIOS failure

   Reset the PC BiOS to default setting by removing the CMOS battery.Check it again.

4.Motherboard failure

 Motherboard may have failed due to power spurge or spike.
Remove your processor & RAM and place it on another motherboard and check if processor & RAM are working or not.If they are working then it's motherboard fault.
replace the motherboard.
