Thats it..its a frequency mismatch..Along with the size of the memory you have something called frequency(133Mhz, 333Mhz) etc., if these frequencies of both rams are not matching your computer is not starting up..try to get a ram of the same frequency..

Computer doesn't turn on, only beeping

Hi Agne Suursaar,

Thank you for contacting fixya.
Do a clear cmos and then try reducing the number of ram sticks that you use to just one, and keep alternating ram sticks in different dimm slots. You may have one or more dead ram sticks/dimms.

sounds like your motherboard malfunctioned. the board was probably starting to go out. thats why it would see the hdd then not.

you sound like youre familiar with computers. you may want to invest in diagnostic cards to troubleshoot problems like this. theyre fairly inexpensive on ebay. basically you insert the card into pci slot and it displays an error code. then you look up the code in a book. works like the obd2 reader for your car.

good luck

My computer starts with a long beep and nothing else happen but a red light led (STBY_LED). I've got a Aopen computer motherboard. please help

Long beep means Problem with System Memory. Open the CPU cabinet and Locate the RAM. Remove the RAM by sliding Down both Clips. and insert the RAM back. it will fix the problem. If problem still persists. Try replacing the RAM module. best of luck

Blackberry 8900 red light on but doens't work

Take it to a cell phone place and let them try a new battery.. My wife was talking on hers in a light drizzle, it shorted everything out one tiny tiny drop. The red light came on, never to work again, once the screen shorts out for a split second it is dead.If the battery shows red x's on the bottom or behind the battery you find a red x you can be sure the screen is shorted out.

Display could be bad, try plugging in an external PC display to verify it.
Other than that it may be the main board is bad.
Some older laptops and PC's had issues with capacitors going bad and would fail to boot.
There was a recall but I'm sure that expired now.
If it's new and under warranty contact to get an RMA to send it in.

Acer won't boot up

when any computer posts/boots up.
it goes through a sequence of initialising things before booting.
i,ve been repairing computers for around 12-15 years.
1st i,d try removing the ram ( memory ) usually underneath the laptop, behind a screw cover. Or ocassionally under the keyboard.
if 2 sticks of ram are installed, remove the battery. and 1 stick of Ram. put battery on and try to boot. if no joy with that try the other stick of ram. and replace battery-Re-boot.
If this works you have 1 stick of faulty ram or faulty ram slot on motherboard. Failing this. I suspect that the CPU has overheated, and therefore a replacement Processor should solve the problem.

Thankyou for using fixya.

Screen won't appear upon start up and I get 3 beeps but no screen

3 beeps POST code (power on self test) means RAM problem.
Reseat the RAM module/s and boot up your computer.
If you have two RAM modules, remove them both and insert one at a time to test them, to determine which module is faulty.
If it still doesn't work then replace the RAM module/s
