Question about Computers & Internet
I failed to re-insert a 256mb PC2100 DDR Dimm into its slot correctly. The computer booted up the first time but with obvious consequences. I presumed I had burnt out the slot and moved the memory to another slot. The computer booted up fine the first time but then refused to boot up again. Moved the memory to the third and final slot only to have the same rigmoral. I have replaced the memory but the computer booted up the first time and now won't boot up at all. Same situation every time - can hear it powering up but it never actually boots up with nothing on screen. Wondering if I've burnt the processer out or what else would allow you to boot up first time but not second time?
If that ram you inserted is just an additional to your existing memory, then chances are that you have damaged the newly inserted ram. if that is the only ram you are using and you thought maybe inserted it incorrectly, it should not have worked even for a while. moving it from one slot to another and the same thing happens? i think your memory should be ok but you better check your mainboard now. otherwise check also the memory you got, what is the operating voltage. see if you're ramo is compatible with your board.

Try to use another memory asides that one. if you are still apprehensive about it, try to make a general cleaning on the motherboard. check if there is anything burnt, bulging capacitors and the ike...
try to reseat all the ones on the pci slot and re connect all ide cables connecting to your drive and hard drive...
now check if youre still having the same booting problem...
1 more thing, try to reset the bios...to do this, check eith your manual about jumpers...
