Question about AOpen XC Cube EA65-II Barebone

2 Answers

Change RAM Hello, due to a reboot which would happen sporadically on my computer, I tried to solve the problem by changing my RAM's from 2X 512 MB (original) to 1X 1GB. The RAM I installed is a 400 MHZ. When rebooting my computer with the new RAM installed, the computer started making a long beep, showing on the screen unclear colours on a black background. After re-booting the computer a couple of times (with still no success), I decided to fit ONE old RAM with the new one -same result. I finally decided to get back to the original spec with the 2 original RAM installed. Unfortunately the computer still would not turn on, except this time it does now show anything on the screen, the beep start continuous and then changes into a siren noise, and an LED blinks next to the RAM bars (near the CPU LED which itself stays on). Unfortunately I have not assembled this computer myself and therefore I am not very confortable with the wiring inside the computer. Can you assist me? Thanks a lot in advance for your support, Laurent

    Hi,

    Unfortunately when putting the original RAM back in the system still does not boot and does a siren nose following a long beep...

    Hi,



    thanks for the suggestion s2dak_jr. I followed your instructions yesterday unfortunately it does not change much: 1rst time I rebooted it, the Aopen screen came up, the computer did a single beep and then it froze... I rebooted the computer and it did the same as before: nothing on the screen, computer does a long beep before it starts doing a siren sound, and a red LED near the RAM blinks.



    Any further suggestion? Does anybody know what the blinking LED could be for? Is there a BIOS reset button ?



    Suggestions are welcome,



    L

    Hi,

    Thanks to those who tried to assist in resolving my issue. I went round the loop again yesterday evening and rechecked the RAM. The system booted normally after taking the RAM out and putting it in again - it was obviously not inserted properly.

    Best regards

    Laurent

If you put the original RAM back in (both sticks) does the system boot?

    In my opinion the system is not seeing any ram at all, or it may not be seeing its video card on or the other. Make sure everything is seated properly.

On my DELL Deminsion E110 the video downloads are sporadic and jerky, but audio is good


Audio is easy...requires little ram to operate. Video today needs 2 GIGABITS or more for VIDEO. A lot depends in the Motherboard Processor also. If it is old, the main processor is no doubt slow. High speed internet is faster than some computer speeds and thus the computer is trying to buffer (catch up) which causes means conditions to occur. Lag time with Video is one problem.
Windows operating system is another. Win 8-10 are ok, but older OS's are slow. THEN we have a Video Card problem. Old cards require new drivers to keep up with changes. Some old Video is slow because the VIDEO RAM is too slow and old. Solution = a New 2018 Computer

Will Mercury 810e motherboard support 1.0 GB (512 MBX2) SD RAM?


I cannot directly answer that question because you did not supply the motherboard model number. You will have to look this up yourself, here is the url for Mercury support
http://www.mercury-pc.com/downloads.php
The model number is usually printed on the motherboard, find it and you can download the manual, specs and drivers.

How can we check that ram is working properly or not


dear atul.
if the ram is not working then your PC will not boot at all. If it is booting then there is no problems with the ram.
one possiblilty with ram not working properly is that it will show the wrong amount of RAM in the system information, like if you have installed 512 MB of Ram and it is showing 356 or less then there is a problem, but you have to be sure that you installed 512 MB of Ram. this could be due to FSB speed.

To check this goto Control Panel > System > "General Tab"
here you can see all your computer specifications like
1 Which windows are you using
2 whom is it registered to.
3 Processor, Type, Speed, RAM etc.

if it is not showing the correct amount try changing it with a new one.

Thanks

Problems with 3 brand new PC 133 512 MB RAM in Netvista 6794


That last RAM probably is good. Many motherboards have problems using many different memory. All of the memory you have should be at least identical to ensure that they work. When RAM run at different speed or require a little more voltage, they will not let your motherboard boot. You can try mixing up the order you put the RAM in. Try putting the last RAM in the first slot by itself, the motherboard should boot. Then try the rest.

Also, whenever you add or change hardwares, you should clear the CMOS/BIOS settings.

HP Desktop Pent 4 randomly shuts down and restarts on its own


Hello,

That is a power failure, please try change the power supply..or test the voltage in the wall outlet if it rate 220 volts if not then power supply is the main causes. Sometimes the software's got conflict due to virus infections.

try to scan your computer with a potent antivirus maybe it help.
