NFORCE4 -939 MOTHERBOARD PROBLEM

Hi....I have a NFORCE4-A939 motherboard running AMD Athlon XP 64 3800+ CPU, 1 Gb DDR RAM. problem is about a week ago, the system began to freeze. i removed one of the 512 memory chips, but the system still Freezes and now the computer case give an electrical shock.
the computer does not boot at all now.
Also....I disabled the "BIOS PROTECT" JP3 jumber on the board for a short while, then reanabled it.
The system still shocks and does not boot. also...the chipset fan does not spin at times and sometimes spin slowly.
I have now bypassed the Transformer I was using on the system. The electrical shock is gone, but I am not getting any video. No signal is being sent to the monitor. I am using a Nforce 256 PCI Express Video Card. Could it be that the card is burned out ?

Help...please
Help me please !
thanks

Hello,

Thanks for using fixya.

My name is Carlo.

Your computer might not pass the system requirements that's why it has an error. Or, you can try installing it one more time and check if it will work. Computers do mess up sometimes.

Here's the system requirement of SIMS 3:

Desktop PC (Windows XP + SP2):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2000+ Processor
RAM: 1 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce FX 5900 or Radeon 9500)

Desktop PC (Windows Vista + SP1):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2400+ Processor
RAM: 1.5 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce FX 5900 or Radeon 9500)

Laptop (Windows XP + SP2):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2000+ Processor
RAM: 1.5 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce Go 6200 or Radeon 9600)

Laptop (Windows Vista + SP1):
CPU: 2ghz Pentium4 Processor or Amd Athlon 2400+ Processor
RAM: 2 GB of RAM
GPU: 128mb Video Card (GeForce Go 6200 or Radeon 9600)

IF your computer does not pass the system requirement, then you cannot play sims3 in your computer.

I hope this helps. Thank you for using fixya

From the information you sent, I can't figure out the exact make & model of your motherboard, but I would guess that it supports a maximum of 2 GB of RAM. So, I would suggst you try to install 2 RAM modules, each of them 1 GB in capacity & see if this works.
From my previous experience, most motherboards with only 2 slots for RAM modules support only a maximum of 2 GB RAM total.

I wish to upgarde to the fasted CPU possible for my motherboard


More importantly RAM will give you better performance, if your computer is low on ram it doesn't matter much what the cpu is.

you can put up to 4GB of ram into it
4 x 184-pin DDR SDRAM DIMM socket support up to 4 GB
Support DDR400/333/266 unbuffered DDR SDRAM

here is a list of supported CPU's
http://www.ecsusa.com/ECSWebSite/Support/CPU_Support_Model.aspx?detailid=493&MenuID=69&LanID=0

I think any of the dual cores on that page will be a OK upgrade.

So if you upgrade your ram to 2GB and a Dual core 4800+ that should be good. but in the long run it might be smarter to upgrade to a new motherboard and even faster cpu, with DDR 2 memory, the memory ddr2 is really cheap these days.

I want to add more ram in my pc km400/km266


Oddly enough this board has the following specs: The board supports both Althon and Duron processors up to Athlon XP 2800+ (3000+ with a BIOS update). It can handle 3 GB of DDR333 RAM (or 2 GB of DDR400, but not all types are supported). 
That's the older 184pin DDR ram in PC2700 or PC3200 guises. I can see no reason why it would only accept 2gb of the faster Ram.
Why not go over to www.crucial.com  and run the online scan to get the true story on your board?
