Define "does not work". Symptoms? Error-messages?

Buy a 512MB stick of RAM.
Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power cord.
Remove the 128MB stick.
Insert the 512MB stick in "socket #1" (sometimes labelled "DIMM 1").
Restart your computer.

> how to update BIOS

Don't try that, just yet. Your problem probably is RAM-related.

I guess u have 2 different RAM cards in the RAM slots....
the main issue is both dont work together...the primary reason is compatibility....or one of the RAM cards have worn out...
u must use exactly similar kind of RAMs in both slots....
i suggest u use one 512 MB if your motherboard supports....
RAM technology has advanced so mush that you wont get RAMs for old PCs (motherboards)....so u decide...
pls revert back...and kindly leave a feedback and rating for this solution...it will help me move to Guru" here from Expert at Fixya....
regards...

My computer screen keeps going blue when i start it and saying a problem has been detected and widows has been shut down to prevent damage to your computer please help


You may have a virus. You may have corrupted files? Start by trying a Boot in Safe Mode. If that works, while in Safe MOde, Go to Start - All Programs - Accessories - System Tools - System Restore.
Choose to restore to an earlier time. Pick a date a few days ago when you know it worked fine. Even a week or two ago is fine. Let it do its thing. When it restarts (automatic) hope fully it will be fine. Up date your anti virus and do a full system scan.

Good luck.

I have dh55tc, i7 860, 4gb transcend ram, xfx hd 5770, tagan stonerock -u37 600w psu, Its assembled in March 2010 & ran fine for 5 months. One day while watching movie it suddenly froze, i restarted...


3 beeps means that it's a RAM fault. If your memory worked just fine in another pc then it's the fault of the memory controller of the chipset on the motherboard - either the memory slot is loose (move the stick in the slot and try again) or the chipset itself is failing. That can't be fixed, the mobo is dead, replace it.

Booting problem whenever i switch on my pc it boot but after sometime its automatically log off.


there is problem with your Ram ,if you have another ram then you can try to change it and then check

Otherwise you can boot your computer with the help of windows cd and see if your pc restarts or not.for this just put windows cd in cd rom and go to bios by pressing F12 on start and under advanced settings change boot priority to cd as first option and then restart and follow the on screen instructions

if Pc restarts again with a beep noise,then change the ram and it will be fine

Restarts


hello!

Please fix all cables inside the system, remove and fix back the memory.

sometimes this problem cause by low voltage power supply. if you are sure that the PSU and also cause by software and hardware conflict that when booting the system and tend to load the windows it will detect error and protecting the system by turning it off or restart it automatically.

In this case, if you have newly installed hardware please remove it. if none of those then maybe you should test your memory for errors. if the memory function well; then, try to boot your system in safemode by pressing "F8" on first start. if the system continue booting in safe mode, unistall all the drivers of you computer and then restart. if the system continue starting in normal mode time to reinstall all the drivers of your system.

If this solution is not working then, there is no other option except reinstalling your Operating system i am sure this ultimately resolve the problem.

Hope this help!

best regards, melnavz
