That shows that the ram memory is low, you need to upgrade to at least 256 or 512mb. because everytime you use the internet a there will always a temporary file that saves. you need to maintain your system by atleast amonth disk clean up. but the best is the you need to upgrade your ram memory

I have an ASUS P5V800 motherboard. I have been having problems with the computer hanging at random times during start up. Sometimes it hangs before the mem test, sometimes during hard drive detect,...

Have you tried cleaning the connections and as well as the motherboard? Based on my experience, dust, especially moist dust that has build up inside the CPU tower can cause malfunctions. What i usually do is i dismantle the CPU tower and clean the components inside with soft-brissled paint brush like heat sink and fan, motherboard, graphics card, etc. When in come to the RAM i clean the pins with pencil eraser like shown in the image below.
and re-assembling them again. hope this helps

Hi there.
Three long beeps means there is a problem with the ram, get a soft clean paintbrush and clean the brass contacts on the ram and also clean the ram slots of dust and then reseat the memory and try to boot the machine again, if it still does not boot then the ram may have to be changed.

Good luck and thanks for using FixYa!!

Chassis intruded!!


This jumper allows you to clear the Real Time Clock (RTC) RAM in CMOS. You can clear the CMOS memory of date, time, and system setup parameters by erasing the CMOS RTC RAM data. The onboard button cell battery powers the RAM data in CMOS, which include system setup information such as system passwords.
1. Turn OFF the computer and unplug the power cord.
2. Move the jumper cap from pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3. Keep the cap on pins 2-3 for about 5-10 seconds, then move the cap back to pins 1-2.
3. Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer.
4. Hold down the <Del> key during the boot process and enter BIOS setup to reenter data.

Except when clearing the RTC RAM, never remove the cap on CLRTC jumper default position. Removing the cap will cause system boot failure!If the steps above do not help, remove the onboard battery and move the jumper again to clear the CMOS RTC RAM data. After clearing the CMDS, reinstall the battery.

You do not need to clear the RTC when the system hangs due to overclocking. For system failure due to overclocking, use the CPU Parameter Recall (C.P.R) feature. Shut down and reboot the system so the BIOS can automatically reset parameter settings to default values

Ram when i upgrade 128 sdram to 256 sdram in intel 845glly it shows spd

It is not seieng the ram, try swapping the ram around or leave out the 128MB, just put in 256MB, if no boot then the ram is not compatible or faulty, not all ram sticks work in all motherboards.

hi habiba,
just insert gently to your motherboard, make all other connection well to board, and swicth on.

1). If you hear a long beep, means missing RAM, i.e. either the RAM is not connected properly or your RAM is bad.

2). If you hear just a beep for less than a second, and your computer get started, means your RAM is good....... :))
