Put just the ram back into the motherboard, the pc will not boot without processor, ram and graphics pluged into the board, check this, if it will still not boot and you still get 3 beeps its a memory(ram) problem, and you will need to replace the memory stick.

    Just had the same problem and i realised that a component had burnt out (browning on the board) replaced it and it works now, also had to change a few capacitors as these had blown.

    i think the component is labeled as D20 near the atx power in socket

Wont accept bios update that was sent from packard bell after total failure keeps asking for bios file. also clear cmos feature on board three pins one with white square which i assume is pin 1 but header...


Ga-8SIML is a generic gigabyte mobo and does not need a packard bell bios. you could goto the gigabyte site and get latest from there. If your PB displays a logo at the start then its likely that you will lose that logo as the generic bios will not know it was fitted to a PB machine but thats no hardship.
Be sure to check the board version. version 1.0 takes one type of bios ver 3.2 another and they wont load into the wrong versions of the board. F12 is the latest non beta. I just did two of these recently so i know F12 is ok.
suggest you visit gigabyte site anyway just to check how the bios should be blasted and which version supports which mobo model no..

Packard bell imedia 3034


After reading a ton of posts you may be correct, your board is dying or is dead.
An easy way to get your data off your old Hd to your new Hd would be to connect it directly into the new PC internally.
Just like you would a new drive only you would set the old drive as a slave. Here is your 3034 link.
http://support.packardbell.com/uk/item/index.php?pn=P842025601&g=1400
The motherboard in this 3034 is Gigabyte, GA-8SIML-NF7, shown at this link: http://support.packardbell.com/uk/item/index.php?i=spec_columbia5p&ppn=P842025601
There is almost no chance of you finding this board its just too old. There are boards at this link that will handel all of your imedia 3034 parts, motherboards.
