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.

My computer keeps rebooting


Does it Boot or is it stuck in a boot loop cycle? Have you done ANY hardware or software, new OS?, updates/upgrades lately? Memory? Put in a new CMOS battery. Try reseating Memory Mods. Are the Fans, heatsink, vents clean? Open the BIOS setup, check Clock, set if necessary, Disable Auto Reboot. Remove ALL Media DVD,CD,USB devices, Printer cable, ect., Will it boot to Safe Mode? Take a look : http://searchenterprisedesktop.techtarget.com/Steps-for-solving-the-reboot-loop-problem May be a bad HDD? Remove and test, replace if necessary.

I put new ram in my emachine 5210 why won't it work


If it was working before you put the ram in, then the ram you put in is the problem. Maybe you put in a ram that is not compatible or is bad.

Put the old ram back in to see if it works.

Go to 4 All Memory to make sure you get the memory that is for your computer.

Dell inspiron 530 desktop won't boot, fan is running, no signal on monitor


It sounds like either your monitor or video card inside the computer is bad.

If the monitor is showing the "No Input Signal" message then the video card inside the computer is bad. The monitor is ok otherwise it would not be able to display the No Input Signal message.

When you plug in the power cord is there any lights whatsoever on the laptop, where the plug goes in or on the AC Adapter of the power cord?

When you press the power button do you hear fans running, hard drive spinning, lights on the computer, hear any beeps or lights constantly blinking, hear the DvD/CD drive click and the light on the drawer of the DvD/CD turn on for a second or two? If so the computer is trying to boot or may have booted, but the screen is not showing for some reason.

Beep tones and blinking lights tells the technicians what is going on with the laptop and why it is not booting. Most times it's a motherboard issue when you hear beeps or blinking lights continuous. Most times the problem is with the memory or Video Card. Count the Blinking Lights or Beeps and take note of their pattern (1 Long or 1 Long followed by 2 Short).

Maybe you have a Static Charge Buildup. Remove the Power Cord, then Press and Hold the power button for 30 seconds. After 30 seconds plug the power cord back in and hit the power button to see if it boots.



Maybe your memory is bad or the memory slot is bad.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of the memory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x on it with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the next memory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set it aside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If it boots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and put it into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

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.

It is stuck in power saver mode tried every thing can not get in come back up. Tried turning off and on, unpluged and pluged back in, put in cd, tried starting in safe mode with F8 key.


Possible that it's caused by a faulty hardware

1. Remove all the connection at the back of your computer
2. Power cycle your computer tower by pressing the power button for 15 seconds
3. Plug the power cord back in and monitor cable at the back of your computer tower (if it turned on, meaning that one of the device plugged at the back of your computer is the one's causing the problem, for you to pin point the problem, try plugging it one-by-one and turn on the computer each time you plug a device)
4. If it keeps on doing that, open up your computer tower (be careful to unplug the power cord and power cycle it to avoid static electricity)
5. Reseat the video card, turn on the computer again, if it's still occurring
6. Reseat the IDE/Sata cable of your hard drive and try to make sure it's properly plugged in, turn on the computer again, if it's still occurring
7. Reseat the memory, turn on the computer and test it again if the same thing
8. If you have 2 memory chip inserted in your computer tower memory slot, remove the other one and turn on the computer, do the same thing to other memory and each slot
9. Reseat the CPU and start the computer.

Memory chip now computer doesnt work


Have you tried putting the PC back to how it was before you had the problem? If you have purchased the wrong type of memory for your motherboard then this can stop your PC from booting. Check the details on the old memory to make sure they match the same as the new memory you have purchased.

If this has helped you then please rate me!

Computer won't boot up after attempting to install new memory


I believe resetting the CMOS would fix this problem. To reset the CMOS, open up the computer and locate a battery similar to this one (it's on the motherboard):

Picture

Once you find it, pull it out. Leave it out for about 24 hours (one day) afterward placing the battery back into its slot on the motherboard. Now try booting up.

It should now successfully start up requesting that you make changes to the BIOS since the CMOS was just reset. Afterward you should be able to use the computer normally.

NOTE: Try resetting the CMOS with the original RAM inside the computer. The new RAM might be forcing the motherboard to send too much voltage or use an incompatible Mhz setting to support the new stick of RAM.

Let me know how it turns out and if I can do anything else to assist you.
