Question about MSI P6NGM-FD Core 2 Quad Socket 775 1333MHz PC2-6400 Motherboard Retail
I had a wondewrful PC built. It worked well untill...
Here's the specs::
core 2 duo 2.4, 2GB DDR2 ram, 250 WD HD,680 watts PSU, 3 fans: 120 & 2x 80. Last week I turned up fsb so the cpu was running as 2.9. Passed stressed tests. But last night I placed in 4GB of DDR2 ram and it made a loud flatline sound. I was told to put the old ram back in and turn ram down below default of 800mhz. I tried this but it didn't boot. It powers up lighted fans and all but no beep beep it normally makes during the boot cyclce. And ofcourse no display. Can anyone help me cause I'm truly lost?
You should only hear 1 beep. That 1 beep is power on self test, known as P.O.S.T.
That loud flat line sound (And I'm pretty sure about this), was you're CPU. Just because you ran & passed the stressed test is nothing compared to running the system under load? That's why when you put in you other memory nothing changed. If you hadn’t mentioned you clocked up the FSB I would have come to the same conclusion hearing the loud flat line statement.
Can you test the CPU in another board? That is about the only way to be sure it's not the CPU. Memory does not make that kind of sound. Memory makes short & long beeps.
You can try clearing the cmos/bios by going to pg. 2-18 in you're user manual. This will reset the bios back to default settings & cross you're fingers!
If I can be of more service, just post back & let me know how thing go.
