There is a chance that the RAM is not placed properly or has dust ..
take it out, clean nicely, the edge which is inserted with a tissue Then reinsert it. If there are two RAM slots, then place the RAM in another slot and try.

continuous beeps are due to the ram not inserted properly or some loose contact in the power switch wires, which is not identifiable and correctable easily.

My desktop is getting stuck so many times. It shows bluescreen and physical memory dump even when i tried to install new copy of windows. the error is technical error stop : 0X0000007A(0XCO7B9FB8,...


It can be a few things but usually the atapi.sys file is corrupt. If you can boot into your desktop, open the "run" box and type in "cmd". In that box type: sfc /scannow and press enter. There is a space between sfc and /scannow. You will be asked to put your Windows CD in the CD drive.
When did this problem begin? Have you installed a new harddrive recently? Have you installed new memory recently? Remove and re-insert the hardrive cables. Remove and re-insert the memory. Be careful about electro-static discharge. Sometimes just doing that will fix a bad connection.
Sometimes this error is caused by bad memory. You can download Memtest86 here: http://www.memtest.org/ Grab the prebuilt ISO.zip After downloading the file right click it and select "extract all" Use Img Burn http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download to write the ISO to a CD. Keep the CD in the drive and reboot.
Also, there could be a problem with the hardrive. if you know the harddrive manufacturer you can usually go to their website and download their hardrive diagnostic software.
Sometimes erasing the hardrive (absolute last resort) will solve these kind of errors. Just be aware that you will lose ALL of your data and it mat not solve the problem. Darik's Boot and Nuke works good for that: http://www.dban.org/

When I turn the hard drive on it beeps 6 times intermittently, it goes 1beep slight pause 3beeps slight pause 2beeps, and doesn't boot up as normal. Numbers 3 and 4 on the hard drive are lighting. The...


Has anything changed since it was working last? check that first
Next -- the Beep codes indicate a hardware problem --the PC was unable to POST(Power On Self Test-)-but DELL's beep codes closest to what you described is either 1-2-video card not detected or 1-3-1-1 which is Memory (RAM) error adn the PHEONIX beep code of 1-3-2 is Memory error also-- so be sure all cards and chips are seated properly--I dont think its the hardrive --a PC can still boot and POST without a hardrive.

Dell xps 410 desktop recently upgraded memory formatted then had the taskbar disappear now try to turn pc on boots up but then immiediatly turns off help


Typically when it shuts off right after the POST screen exits,the problem is CPU related.But since you just added RAM,I'd strongly suggest that you put back what was originally there and see if that fixes the problem. You can also try your new sticks 1 at a time and see if any test bad by repeating your shut off problem. It's not all that uncommon to buy a bad stick,especially mail order or on-line.
If this helps,please rate my post?
Good luck,and post back if you need to ask anything else.I'll help with whatever I can.

Flashing amber light on power button and won't boot but once out of 10 times???


If the computer shuts down after being on, also check that the CPU fan is seated flush on the CPU with thermal compound in between. If the CPU is too hot, the computer will shut down and not restart until cooled down a bit.

Memory upgrade


Your computer has memory problems. First check video. If video is working, you'll see an error message. If not, you have a parity error in your first 64K of memory. First check your ram's. Reseat them and reboot. If this doesn't do it, the memory chips may be bad. You can try switching the first and second banks memory chips. First banks are the memory banks that your CPU finds its first 64K of base memory in. You'll need to consult your manual to see which bank is first. If all your memory tests good, you probably need to buy another motherboard.

Or you have bought wrong type of memory for your motherboard.

I went to turn my pc on and the hardrive hase stopt spinning wot do i do


if you see no lights on at all, no fans going or any sign of life, it may be the power supply that has died.
if you see lights on but the pc does not boot up (turn on) it could be one of many problems , we need more information
as it could be:
  • bad cpu
  • bad motherboard
  • bad memory chip
  • bad hard drive
  • fluctuation power from the supply
as you can see more info would be good, as that is the only guide we have .

good luck

Asus P4S800-MX Motherboard video problem


The system speaker is usually a set of four pins and you use the outside pair to connect the speaker. You may need to go to the Asus web site to download the manual if you don't have it. Try to reset the bios either by shorting the appropriate pins or by removing the battery for a while.
