Load defaults on the bios screen, save and exit, reboot. see if it recognizes your newly installed ram. also if you have 4 memory slots, try using different configuration on the placement of the ram modules. Like if you have four memory slots trying, try using the first and 2nd slot, if no go then try using the 1st and 3rd slot and also remember to always load bios deafaults everytime you reconfigure the ram placement or size.

One bad lead can cause a computer to continue on a cycle or to shutdown or fail to detect/ boot up a computer hard drive

Test all leads that attach to your hard drive including electrical extensions,IDE,SATA

the leads from your ((motherboard to your hard drive)) make sure they have a secure connection and are not faulty or just replace them there probably old and faulty
make sure all leads that are attached to your drives dvd\cd 3 1/2 inch floppy have secure connections and are not faulty even the electrical extensions or just replace them they are probably old and faulty a computer needs its connections to continue its cycle and have an end so any faulty leads will end up with a computer error

hope this helps

I'm upgrade memory in a ECS P4-M935DLU, with SiS650GX from 256MB memory to 2GB memory. Computer see's the new 2GB memory when I boot up, but in a short time the computer re-boots. It keeps re-booting. Do...


You don't say what you mean by "a short time."
have you gone into the CMOS setup to see if the settings are good?
Does Windows actually start? If not, put a Windows system disk in and boot from it and do a scandisk from it.
Did you leave the old memory in? If so, remove it an just use the new memory.
You can also check to see what is going on by placing the old memory back in and see if it works. If it does, go into control panel, admin tools, and event log. Check to see what might have been recorded there to get an idea why it's cycling.

Tried to upgrade dell dimension 2400 256 memory cards.


If you do not see any activity and no beeps then the memory module could either be not seated right or was damaged by static. Or you could have knocked something loose (nah that never happens ;-])

To boot and generate a beep code the motherboard needs to see the first 64k of ram. So you can be sure that the problem or part of it will be the #1 memory module. So take it out and reseat it, and then try again. If nothing then swap it's position with the other module and see if that works.

Look around the case and then reseat any connectors. You may need to pull them off and then push them back on to be sure. The heat cycles from the boards running can cause them to work loose and then they just need a bump or a brush to disconnect. On some cases you can do the same just by picking it up by the corners. The case twists and pop.

If nothing is out and it still won;t work your other option is to start swapping parts into the other case to verify they are working.

Memory Upgrade


Not knowing what model of computer you are talking about, I'd suggest you try various combination's with your memory modules as some computers are picky and accept certain size memory chips in certain slots only.
Furthermore, it could be there is a bad connection on the sockets or if you have not been ESD safe, you could have zapped the memory chips and or the main board.

Memory Upgrade and Computer will not boot


You need to do a BIOS Upgrade. First get the name of your BIOS when the computer boots up. Then go to the we site and find your BIOS brand and get a version update or upgrade.

Be VERY careful and follow the directons to the letter.

Let me know if this helps.
