Installed RAM and now I get 3 long beeps and no visual...???

Gateway 300s Desktop

I installed RAM and now I get 3 long beeps and no visual.

I have another pc from 2003 and I was just going to give it some moreRAM to let it run smoother. It had a 256mb DDR stick in, so I added a 512mb DDR stick in the empty slot. when I go to turn the computer on I get nothing from the monitor and the PC beeps 3 semi long times. Ive put things back to the way they were and still getting the same issues.

Any way to fix this?

I have tried-
Moving the Ram in the other spots
Tried the other 512 by itself tried both by them self and in diff spots
The graphic processor is on the Motherboard so I cant take it off and put it back in.
Took out the Cmoss battery to try to reset to factory settings
Made sure I pushed EVERYTHING in nothing is loose.

3 long beeps signifies that there's a problem with either the RAM or Video card. You have to make sure that the RAM is compatible with your system. This is what usually happens once the RAM is not compatible with the computer.

I installed a new motherboard for a Gateway DX4710-05 + windows vista.CPU will not turn on but i do get a continunous bipp sound.Thank you for your help.


In this case do the following steps .
First Remove your computer's RAM and try to switch on the computer . If even after removing the RAM your computer makes the same continus beep sound then just click the RAM properly and insert it properly.
If again you your the same noise then your RAM is faulty.

My gateway desktop wont boot, it only beeps 3 times, one long beep follow by two short beeps...


Welcome to Fixya!

You will need to remove the RAM modules and clean their gold fingered connectors with tissue paper. Also clean the RAM slots with a vaccum cleaner, be very careful through. Once cleaned install the RAM modules one at a time as one may be faulty and then power on your computer.

Take care!

I have gateway LX6810-01.It was working fine , but when i turned on in morning, it gave me blue screen with message that it conflicts with some new hardware and remove the hardware and re-start it. I did...


Hello there, I am the Expert that will be helping you today. My name is damnor01.

Welcome to Fixya.

Your Computer was Working, then components were installed. That means that either the fault was caused by the new hardware that was installed or some-thing was damaged during the installation of said component.

Now your computer is failing the Power On Self test or POST!
If it was RAM that was installed and then the computer failed in this way then one can assume that the RAM may contain a Virus.

Un-install all RAM modules and then Power on! Do you get an evenly spaced Beep, Beep, Beep.
If you do then this confirms a RAM Problem.

Install the RAM Modules one at a time in alternating slots.

Also see my published guide entitled My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!! for more information!!!

Thanking you very much!
Welcome again

My gateway gt5404 says no rgb signal what do I do


With 3 beeps, you are getting a Memory base read/write error, which means your RAM is having a problem.

You can try takng the RAM simm/dimm out and re-seating them back into the slots.

If the issue continues, you will need to replace the bad RAM

I get 3 beeps and no video on my gateway desktop


The beeps usually meen that the memory is either incorrect or not inserted correctly. Try removing the new memory and go back to the original configuration. Though not recommended, putting the memory in while still plugged up should not be the problem.
