Your memory module is defective, it's better to send it back to avail the warranty and replace it. The blue screen pops up to notify that there's a hardware failure running on the system that's why it's can't go on.

My computer has one long beep 2 short beeps, I put in new RAM and still does the same.

One, if I may; clean the gold plated contact pins with a pencil eraser, use air to remove the eraser dust. THEN try again before buying new Ram Memory.

(You are Following Anti-Static Precautions, right?)

Unplug the computer from power. Press the Power On button in, and hold for a count of 10 seconds. Let go.
Do this procedure two more times.

Plug the computer back into power.

What this does is clear CMOS Error Codes, and resets BIOS Setup back to the factory default settings.
We are just trying to clear CMOS Error Codes.

WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.

Still no?
'Slap' BIOS around a little bit.
Hold the Power On button in for a count of 10 seconds, or until computer turns off.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer back on.

I had to do this 3 times, one time, in order to get BIOS to recognize the new Ram Memory.

A) Ram Memory HAS to be in Slot 1. (DIMM 1)
That is the ram memory slot the Processor reads first.

Don't care about the other Ram Memory modules at the minute.
Just want to make sure a module is in Slot 1.

B) Are you SURE you have the correct Ram Memory?
There is a TOTAL amount for the motherboard, and EACH ram memory slot has a Maximum amount also.

Install in Slot 1 first. Try computer. If it works, then install ram memory in other ram memory slots.

No didn't work?
Then install in Slot 2.

You may find one of the ram memory slots is bad.

With 512MB RAM in slot1, laptop is working fine, but when I tried to install other 512 ram in slot 2, there were no display and numlock and caplock led start blinking. Both RAM are originally shipped with...

umm .. Are both RAM memory modules the same type? You can fit different types of RAM to a computer but they may not be compatible together. Check that both modules are the same.

Other than that, it sounds as if the problem may be slot 2. This would suggest that either the RAM isn't being correctly engaged or the slot is faulty.

Switch off the computer. Put a memory module into slot 2 to see if the computer works. Try it with both memory modules using slot 2. If neither memory module works in slot 2 this indicates a fault - motherboard probably.

If one memory module works in slot 2 - but not the other module - this tends to indicate a mismatch between the RAM modules and they are not compatible together.

When I start my computer its only says bip bip bip


Three beeps indicates that there is a memory error. Take the system memory from the motherboard and clean the brass contacts on the memory and also clean slots that the memory clips into. Make sure you clean all of the dust away from them.

Put the memory back into the slots and try turning the computer on. If you have more than one memory module put them back one by one turning the computer on after each try.
If it still won't switch on and you get the beeps you will be looking at new memory for the computer.

One long beep at boot up

Hogshead, a few suggestions here, but would like some more info too; does the beep start as soon as you hit the power button, or does the computer boot up even though it's still beeping?
Is the beep one long continuous tone, or does it pitch up and down like a siren?
This could be a couple of scenarios; one is the RAM, which I'm not too sure it is, the other is the CPU which is more likely.
Now, with the memory, this mobo uses dual channel memory, which means 'both' sticks have to be identical and both have to be working and have to be in their paired slots. Make sure you memory is good (have it tested or test it yourself), make sure the memory is seated (in) properly and the contacts are clean, and make sure the memory is in its pair slot which I can't remember if it's slot1 and slot2 or slot1 and slot3 (try it).
Now, more likely it's the CPU (processor), make sure the processor is seated properly and no pins are bent or tarnished (oxidised). If the CPU is damaged there is no way to test that other than putting it in another machine or putting another CPU in yours - be aware that what ever damaged your CPU is at risk of damaging another you put in there.
I've got to cut this short, we'll tackle more as you get back to me.
Let me know what happens.

How come my DS is not playing my new game?

If that is happening with all the games then its like your slot1 is broken.
Check for bent or broken pins in the DS slot. If anything wrong you might need to send it for repair the slot1.
At last resort you can try inserting a piece of cardboard soaked in alcohol carefully in the slot to clean the pins (if not broken) or open the console and try to lift the pins a bit to allow it to make good contact.

Cant run

find an old graphics card (maybe the swapmeet) and try that. When installing the devices hold cards from both ends and push in evenly. The problem is most likely installation.
Count the beeps and which ones are long and short.
For example: two long beeps and three short ones.
Then in google lookup your bios beep codes.
For example: Award beep codes
There you will get a definite answer to what is ailing your machine.
