Have an EVGA nForce 680i. Bought 2x 2 GB 6400 800Mhz of ram to replace 2x 1 GB sticks. However when I start up the system it only reads that I have 2874 MB of RAM. So I figured maybe one of the sticks is...


The reason its only seeing just under 3GB of memory is no doubt because you are using a 32BIT operating system (probably XP).
If you were to install Win 7 (X32) or a 64BIT operating system the computer would see all 4GB of RAM you have installed.

Its nothing to worry about though as the computer will work just fine. If you were to check in the BIOS you would see all 4GB of memory is there and see by the BIOS.

The one long-two short beep code is for bad memory, not for a failed video card.
Shut down your computer, remove one stick of ram, reboot the computer, and repeat for each stick of ram, until you find the bad stick.

Installing XP = BSOD


Without the actual info from the BSOD, we have to provide general troubleshooting tips.

Since Windows is not yet loaded, it cannot be a driver or software issue - so we need to look at the hardware.

Typically, a faulty or unrecognized RAM stick and / or an unusual BIOS setting can cause this issue.

Go into the BIOS and reset the BIOS to factory defaults, remove all CPU overclocking.

Remove all RAM and try booting with only 1 stick installed.

If this does not work, try and give the error message from the BSOD and we can look into it for you.

Computer crashes with my RAM sticks both in

First thing i would suspect is a bad ram stick. Here is a link to a free tool you can use to test the ram if you dont have an application for that:

use the "memtest" programs on there.

I know, it works fine with 1 stick, but its a dual channel board so the ram may only fail on 2 sticks, so check it out.

If RAM tests fine, then go for a BIOS update. I have run into some weird things with that chipset in ragards to raid vs mem. Using RAID on that system?

Is your system overclocked? try running it at standard speed. If that fixes it then run at a lower overclock or get better cooling.

If it still doesnt work after all that, see if you cant borrow another processor from someone and try running it with a different processor.

If that is not the problem, try running a fresh load of windows for a couple of days, with nothing but windows loaded. If that fixes it then your problem is software, and will go away with the reload.

If you are STILL having trouble after all that, then its time to try swapping out the motherboard. Hopefully yours is still under warranty. If not, I like Asus boards - as they have a 3 year warranty and are just good boards.

The new RAM module could be faulty or the second memory slot is faulty.
Try removing the original 1Gb memory module and inserting the new memory module in its place to see if the computer boots up normally. If it doesn't then then new memory module is faulty.

MSI 7041 Motherboard problem?

RAM would be my next guess. If the board is bad, so could the RAM be as well. Try swapping some known good RAM and see what happens. Or, at the least (if you have more than one stick), remove all but one and try again. Repeat until all sticks have been tried by themselves - you could just have one RAM stick causing the problem.

However, usually even if you have one bad stick, your system will still post, just show less memory. On the off-chance that all sticks are bad, then you might have similar symptoms.

Sounds like a bad mobo to me :(

Try RAM with a different speed. My 800 mhz RAM didn't work until I installed 533 mhz RAM and adjusted to 800 mhz in BIOS. Newly built PC, default must be set as 533 mhz because I reset the CMOS and still couldn't POST to BIOS. Only taking out all RAM gave me any sort of audible error code. Luckily I found some 533 RAM before I RMA'd the board.

Installing 2 sticks of 1 gb ram = DRAM error beeps

If the computer is working with one gb stick and not the other, try this:

Swap the sticks with the one that does work. If it works then its the memory card slot on the motherboard. If it doesn't boot up, then it's the memory stick.
