The blue screen flash and restard is actually a critical system message, but windows is set to restsrt the system on a system failure, if you want to read the message, start the computer and tap the "F8" key until a menu appears, one of the options will be "disable automatic restart on system failure" select this option and the next time it happens it will stay there.. but from what you are describing it is pretty evident you have bad ram, the long beeps you are hearing is the mainboard signalling a critical error, usually caused by ram, get new ram and i think you will have no problems

I want to extend the RAM memory on my NEC computer. The motherboard is a GA-8SIMLNF Rev.1.1. It has two memory slots and presently one slot is occupied with a PC2100U-20330-A1 256 DDR 133 CL2 memory. I...


Check your manual (Gigabyte will have the manual on their website), to make sure your motherboard can handle 1Gb of Ram, or more. Generally in my experience, medium aged motherboards handle 1GB per slot, max (mine uses PC3200, not PC2100, and will take up to 4GB in its 4 slots).

You'll want PC2100 ram (easily searched for on http://www.newegg.com), either in 2x512MB sticks, or a single 1GB stick for your open slots (bringing you up to 1.25GB).

The Avant memory is NON-ECC unregistered type memory. That motherboard requires ECC registered type memory, or so it says: ftp://ftp.biostar-usa.com/manuals/U8668%20D/U8668Dmanual.pdf While both types will fit physically into the same DDR slot, most motherboards will only run one type or the other, not both.

Remove the memory card in the motherboard and then clean the pins of the memory card by an eraser of a pencil and then plug it again. Start the computer and see if it works.

Memory problem


First pull cmos cell from motherbord for 10 minutes.
then open processor fan and processor then clean dust from motherbord and all parts then reconnect processor and its fan.
Then refix RAM memory .
then if it beeps so long then most of it is your RAM problem.slot is more time works fine in that case.
Check your RAM in ALL MEMORY MODULE SLOT.

Computer will not startup


H there.
The beep codes you describe sound like memory issues or failure, take the system memory out, clean the contacts and the slots with a clean, soft, dry paintbrush. Re-seat the memory firmly and try boot the PC again.
Please post back with the results

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Memory installation


Most likely, it is a limitation of your motherboard. Not all motherboards or computers can physically read all types of memory or they may have memory limitations. For instance, I was working on an older Gateway this week. It had 2 memory slots but the maximum amount of memory the computer would recognize is 512 MB. Therefore, if I had put to 1 GB sticks in, provided the computer could use it, the maximum the computer would be able to see or use is 512 MB. In this instance, that is most likely the scenario. The best thing to do is to go to www.crucial.com and run the system scanner. It will tell you how many slots you have, what the maximum per slot capacity and the total capacity of your computer is.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

Memory


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.

Double boot


almost anything is possible, but in general a 430 watt P/S should be able to run 2 gigs of ram, however that doesn't mean that the ram you purchased is the correct ram for the motherboard or that you have so many other added perpherials i.e. dual or tripe CD drives, hard drives, USB perpherials that the load is simply to great for your P/S. A rule of thumb is find out what your system ' will ' run with and then work from there. For example if a person was serous about this problem he might disconnect all power connectors to all other equipment other then his hard drive, monitor/video card, and his motherboard just to see if the system could then boot normally. If it did, chances are the memory is okay for the motherboard in normal circumstances. However if the system did not boot normally, it might be an incompatibility with the 2 gigs of memory on that particular motherboard. Memory is not a generic add-on. A person needs to make sure the memory is correct for a motherboard before installing. Also you indicate the present P/S is only 4 months old, any particular reason why you had it changed out to begin with??
