I installed a 1gb stick in my motherboard, retarted ans would not boot. Took out added stick and now it goes through booting all cd drives then stops, display will not come on red led keeps running, still has original 1g and 1 256mb memory in it. Was wondering if it fried my orignal memory and thats what it is searching for or if I messed up motherboard? Thanks

The splash screen with the LG Flatron logo is the monitor's splash screen not the PCs.
The machine is NOT booting up the splash screen is the monitor coming on.
Remove the 1Gb stick an see if the machine performs normally.
If it does then power it off, remove the power cord and CAREFULLY reinstall the new stick.
If it fails to boot you may have a defective memory module.
If the machine fails to boot with the new stick removed make sure you have the original memory seated properly and all cables securely attached
1) Go into your bios by pressing the Delete key.
2) Navigate to boot disk priority.
3) Set this to Primary master disk drive (The drive that your operating system is installed on.
4) The save and exit.
This should stop the message from coming up and solve your problem.

with rams, if the memory it has is higher than that of your cpu, the pc will not boot up or if it is too low compared to your cpu again.
thus, you say it has got two slots right, remove both of the 512's and insert the 1gig only, run your computer, i am sure it will boot up nicely. switch it off. put one 512, if it does not boot then you should know that your ram has an excess of memory that your cpu could not apprehend to.
Download a manual from the ASUSTEK website, I have read many forums related to issue's with ram and from what I have learned with the ASUS boards is that dependind on the bios and the model, each slot, for some unknown reason can only recoqnize a maximum of 128MB per DIMM slot? My board has 4. For example, no matter what I install for Ram the motherboard will only read 512, some of the forums on ASUSTEK reccomend reflashing the bios with an updated one, but now, with the age of these computers i find it difficult to find a Bios upgrade. It is ridiculas, the Bios should come from the manufacturer ready to handle the maximum Ram of 1GB, which is my case with the ASUS P3B-F Pentium 3 with a 850MHZ processor.?????????
More people should complain with Asus support. Checking Asus forums, you'll find there's an obvious problem with a PCI-E video addon + 2 used memory slots. In my case, I had 2Gb (1 + 1), mb with bios version 1104, and it worked fine; when I installed a new PCI-E card, the system was very... very sluggish. Now I have uninstalled 1 memory, I'm using only 1Gb of RAM with the PCI-E card, and it's working well.
Again: checking Asus forum, this is a reported problem, and a bios bug... Asus should release a new bios version, but they seem not to bother, as this is a relatively "old' mb...
