Question about Gigabyte GA-K8VM800M Motherboard
When I first put the system together, I used two sticks of 512MB Crucial DDR500 (PC-5000) memory. The system would not boot - just one long beep. I replaced the memory with DDR333 (PC-2700), tweaked the bios settings, switched the memory back. Problem solved.
Recently I added a video card to the system and replaced the power supply (the first power supply was kind of weak). Now the machine won't boot.
I removed all cards. I switched the power supply back. I put the DDR333 (PC-2700) memory back. I cleared the CMOS.
All I can get is the one long beep.
Is it dead? If so, why? If not, what am I missing?
Some AGP cards will do this if you haven't plugged in the additional power cable needed to power the fan. It's screaming because you just booted the system with an after-market graphics card and it can't cool itself.

I think the problem is the ram runs to fast for that motherboard?
Somewhere I read the fastest ram it can handle is 3200?

BIos Beeps or Post-Codes Differ from Manufacturer to manufacturer.
1 Long Beep Usually Refers To The Dram Refreshing ( Faulty Or Incorrectly Fitted Memory Modules )
Try 1 Memory chip in each slot individually.
Also ensure Your Graphics Card, Is Correctly Seated, not uneven. especially If it,s An AGP Card.
Hope Tjis Is A Fixya For You.
