Power Off your PC, unplug the power cable, unplug your ram, before you unplug the ram, make sure your hand touch on the sink casing and count 10 second. Then put it back all the thing. Try reboot your pc.

Desktop hang everytime when starting up, cant use the computer completely


If the restarting its having place right the way and it repeats it on and on ..it seams like a Ram memory issue ...This can be caused by a defective Ram unit ..or just need to be cleaned ...(the slot ) so ..First open it ..and remove the Ram memory and clean the slot ...Blow air to be sure it is clean ..but do not touch it directly on the chips cause it may be affected by the static electricity from your body ...Handle it by the ends...After that ..if you have more than one memory units...just place them back ..one by on e..and boot the computer each time ...This way you will be able to see if one of them is defective ...If you have only one ..and after the cleaning operation it still does the same ..it means that it may need to be changed..
Another thing you can do is to try and reinstall the computer ..before dealing with the Ram memory ...cause....sometimes a lack of some boot sector file ...may cause boot failure and the computer restarts before logging to windows..and ..the re-installation (or restoring using the recovery disk ) will fix it ..

I have an Asus p5w dh deluxe MB and it will not boot. It starts, beeps once, then shuts down.


Try removing one DIMM (stick of ram), and booting. If that doesn't work, remove the other DIMM (assuming you have two), and try to boot again. If that fails, roll up your sleeves and get to troubleshooting.

Is this a new build? If so, take the motherboard out of the case, leave it on either the motherboard's box that it came in, or anti-static bags, and leave only the power connected to the motherboard. Try booting it to rule out a short coming from a misplaced stand-off inside the case. If it boots, check where your stand-offs are inside the case, making sure none are contacting the actual circuitry on the back of the motherboard.
If all of this fails, you may just have a bad motherboard, contact the manufacturer for RMA procedures.

About my ram of p4m800-m7 rev 3.1 i have a 512mb ram already installed and i buy a new ram with a 1gb size and i would like to install it but my question is is it okay to put them together? my 512mb ram is...


The black rectangular chips on the side, or sides, of the ram module are DRAM chips. Dynamic Random Access Memory.

('Chip' is slang term to denote IC, or Integrated Circuit)

Each Dram chip is of a specific size, (or can be said as Amount)
There are manufacturers who make the Dram chips, and then the chips are used by the ram memory manufacturer.

Doesn't matter how the Dram chips are arranged. The ram memory manufacturer could put them all of one side, if they designed it that way.

1.Your motherboard will support, (Use), DDR at 333Mhz, or DDR at 400MegaHertz.
(PC2700 and PC3200, respectively)

2.The ram memory module must use 2.5 Volts.
(JEDEC has set the voltage standard for DDR Sdram at 2.5 Volts, so no worries here. Only time to check this, is if you have some High performance ram, that may be set to use a higher voltage)

3.It must be Non-ECC ram, and Unbuffered.

4.Cas Latency should be 2.5 to 3.0 (Ram Timings)

Short solution?

Computer off, and unplugged from power. TOUCH the metal frame of the computer case to relieve your body of Static.

Handle the ram 'sticks' by the body of the stick, and refrain from touching the gold plated contact pins, on the bottom.

If the 512MB stick is in SLOT 1, remove it. Install the 1GB stick in Slot 1. Make SURE it is seated!

(Slot 1, is the ram memory slot that is closest to the Processor. It is the first ram memory slot that the Processor reads)

Leave the computer case open. (Refrain from putting your hands in while the computer is plugged into power)

Plug the computer into power. Wait 30 seconds. Turn the computer on.

Computer boots up? (Starts)
Okay.
Unplug from power. Install the 512MB stick in Slot 2.
Plug into power, wait 30 seconds. Turn the computer on.
Computer boots up?
You're good to go.

1GB ram memory stick is in Slot 1, and the computer does not boot up?
Incompatible ram memory. Remove it. Reinstall the original 512MB stick in Slot 1.

The memory I install to Armada wont boot


You CAN NOT mix 100 and 133 chips! It is not good for the computer. They may let the computer work, but it won't recognize them properly.
If you still want to use the new chips, try and bypass the acklowledgment. Don't know if it is possible, but it may be the only way.
You should be using the correct chips.

You can go to: 4allmemory.com or cruicial.com to find out what sizes your computer is allowed.

PC want start after replacing memory card



Hello


1. Make sure that your computer supports 1Gb on 1 slot.

2. If you touched the chips with your hand you might have BURNED the chips with static electricity from your hands.

3. But before you start panicking check if you have moved the video card, if you did the PC won't show up anything and will halt at start up.

3. One last thing you might do to get the computer booting up again is to remove the CMOS battery for say 1 minute and then put it back in place to reset CMOS just in case. Then plug in your old memory in place turn off replace and try the new one. turn off try install both (never touching the chips on the RAM) and turn on again.

Hope that this helps :)

Computer wont boot after memory upgrade


when working on computers you have to be carefull to ground your self before touching the inside of them. when installing memory you dont need to unpluge everythinf just the main power cord on the back of it.the blinking green light means you have something no pluged in right,double check everything you unpluged make sure it back in the right areas.on memory the slots are mark 1,2,3,4
make sure if the memory is diffrent in speeds the lagger ons go first.the first to slots normally have to be the same speed and size ram.if that does not work let me know i can look into it for you.

It could be the wrong ram that u are using when i put extra ram in I make sure they are all the same brand. some boards take 2 different types of ram (speeds) i would go back to crucial with your good ram in and then do a check and see what ram your board needs

Locks up on boot


With the power off, battery removed/no adapter plugged in, try removing and reinserting the RAM chips on the bottom. (they will have their own access panel. There will be a thin metal 'prong' on either side the holds the chip in place, gently push the open end away from the board to get it loose (it will pop up). gently lift out only touching the sides of the board. don not touch the chips or pins. Gently reinsert the way it came out. (you wont really harm the ram if you happen to touch it, but just to be safe as there is a slight chance). Once it is reinstalled and the cover back on, restart eh computer. If it still hangs, one or both chips may be bad. (this of course assumes you have 2 ram sticks and not one) It wont boot without one, but try booting with only one (if you have 2). If it were making it past the bios I would look more towards the HD, but with the Bios locking up I bet its just the ram needs to be reseated. post back if it still wont work/more questions.
