Ram install caused beeping and no boot-up


Remove the ram and use the known good RAM. If your motherboard has more than one slot then try the other slots in your computer.

David,

FOLLOWING Anti-Static Precautions?

OK.
Using a decent light, what shape are the Electrolytic Capacitors on?

There are Solid Polymer Capacitors. One on one side of the Processor, and 3 on the other side,

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?cc=us&lc=en&docname=c01324212#N155

Those little 'cans' have a Red mark on one side, on the top.
Others used have a Blue mark.

Not talking about those. If they were bad you'd know it. They explode like miniature grenades, and throw shrapnel all over inside the computer case.

Referring to the Radial Aluminum Electrolytic Capacitors,

A) http://capacitorlab.com/visible-failures/index.htm

B) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Lut7MX5Dd_A

Did you install the 2 -2GB 'stick's in the Blue Ram Memory slots?
Reasoning?

Slot 1, or also known as DIMM 1; is the first blue Ram Memory slot that is closest to the Processor.
The Processor reads what is in Slot 1 first. MUST be a Ram Memory module ('Stick') in Slot 1.

Most prefer to run Ram Memory in a Dual Channel configuration; so the other Ram Memory module should be in Slot 3.

Do you have the old Ram Memory?

Cleaned under Mobo;

The motherboard is mounted to a Support Plate.
The Support Plate can be a separate metal plate, or is an integral part of the computer case.

Mounting of motherboard TO Support Plate is accomplished by plastic Spacers, or metal Standoff/s.

If metal Standoff's are used, and ARE able to be moved, is there one that is in the wrong place? Not matched up to a motherboard mounting hole?
If one is (Or more) it can touch the exposed solder joints, on the bottom of the motherboard, and cause a Short Circuit.

Most of the time removal, or placing to a motherboard mounting hole, will allow the motherboard to work again.

Post back in a Comment.

(If yourself, or someone did Not follow Anti-Static Precautions; when handling the motherboard/working on computer, you may be looking at a pile of junk, now )

New memory, the board just beeps


First of all that board supports DDR400 (PC3200) so why did you get PC2100 chips?

Anyway, do a bare minimum test (only MB, CPU, RAM & PSU connected, nothing else). Remove all the RAM and test each one individually. Properly insert one into the first RAM slot and test by booting until the POST RAM test is finished. Shutdown and repeat the test with the same RAM module in slot 2 and keep repeating this for every slot. If successful in every slot, mark that module as working then try the other RAM modules using the same procedure.

  • As soon as you find one that doesn't fully pass the POST test, mark it as faulty.
  • If some pass in one slot but not another, then mark it as faulty.
  • If they all fail to pass on a specific slot, mark that slot as faulty and don't use it (you can use electrical tape to cover the slot for future reference).

Once you've finished the bare minimum test, try 2 RAM modules this time (use only the modules that you found to be working from the above tests). Mix and match the RAM modules & then try 3 together and even 4 (if you found all of them to be working fine).

Finally once you're satisfied you've found the modules that work properly, boot with memtest and test the RAM for any problems. If they all seem to work fine individually, boot them individually and test with memtest to determine which ones are actually faulty.

Does no show display and bios beeps once then three time then three more time then again once more.


Hi,
Regarding the Beep codes try removing the Memory Rams one at a time and see if the computer will turn On properly with 1 RAM at a time, if you have an expansion video card, try removing the video card and use the internal video on the motherboard see if it will boot without any errors.
What you are experiencing is a no POST issue, you do not see the BIOS as you mentioned,remove anything expansion on the motherboard and do the RAM Dance, try One RAM at a time as mentioned and try each RAM on all the Memory RAM slots Available to find out if it will be a RAM causing the issue or possible a bad Memory Slot on the Motherboard.

Can not find second ram chip


Remove both pieces of ram (mark them with a felt tip marker so you know which one is which), and clean the contacts on the ram and the slots with a pink pencil eraser. Be gentle though, you don't want to remove the gold on the contacts, just remove the oxidation and make 'em bright again. You can shape the eraser to fit the slot with a sharp knife - and be sure to remove the eraser debris from the slots with a soft brush (dry toothbrush is good) . If still no good try this:
  1. Remove both pieces of ram.
  2. insert the second piece of ram in the first slot (leave the other slot empty) If the second piece of ram is detected, then the ram is good, and the second slot is likely the problem. If the ram is not detected, then the second stick of ram is the problem. Confirm this by putting ram stick 1 into slot 2. If the known good stick of ram (1) doesn't work in slot 2, then the slot is dead. If this is the case, get a larger stick of ram for slot 1. Let me know if this helps or not.

Dell 2400 ram upgrade problem


RAM can be finicky so first test all memory slots with a known good stick (your 512MB). Make sure you're starting from a complete power down and you get a POST beep (hopefully your system is set up to beep when it powers on) and everything loads up all the way through to your OS.

Once you do that with all your memory slots test with the new stick by itself in all memory slots. If neither of the memory slots work with the new stick but you verify that it works in another system you should then check your BIOS settings and RAM timings to ensure compatibility with your stick. If you can't find the timing on the RAM stick itself, look up the manufacturer's part number for the information.

Good luck!

Finding 1GB of RAM that is compatable with my 2002 Dell Pentium Computer


Look on the case to get the actual name of the computer - it would be something like "Dimension", or "Lattitude", or "Optiplex" and be followed by a number.

Then go to Kingston Memory and look up your computer based on that name & model. They will show you what is available for your machine.

You may find that you have to remove the existing memory you have before you can put in additional memory. Memory goes into "slots" on the motherboard. If a computer had 2 slots, and each had 256 K (total 512) you could not add any memory without removing the original RAM.

If you still have questions, please post them to this problem. If I've solved your issue, please mark it as "Fixya"

Good Luck
