You may have inserted the RAM wrongly, or the two modules are incompatible. The 3 beeps you hear indicates that RAM is not functioning properly.
Remove the RAM module that was recently inserted. Most likely the RAM slot is unusable now, as there was a short circuit at the slot.
Try using the RAM module on a different slot. Also make sure that that you have purchased the recommended type of RAM, ie DDR/DDR2, etc. for the slot.
It is always better to use a single RAM module, rather than 2 different modules from different companies..

    It looks like the circuitry from the RAM DIMM slots is defective. Unfortunately, if both slots are defective, your only solution is to replace the entire motherboard.

My gas stove seems to have what i would call a after burn


If it is just short final flare, it is probably just the gas still in the supply pipe to the burner. That last bit of gas will burn off rapidly right after the valve is turned off.

Upgrade BIOS to see if it will resolve hardware issue with new stick of RAM


Hi Szusza,

The new RAM module you purchased may be faulty, it is definitely possible that either due to a fault of the new RAM or on the slot you are trying to install it to cause the computer to not fully boot.

Have you tried to boot the computer with the new module only?
If not please try this:

Replace the original RAM module with the new one (make sure you insert the new RAM in the same slot you took the old one out)
If the PC boots you know the new RAM is fine.
If this does not work I would suggest getting your new RAM tested.

If it does work, put the original RAM back in the computer (in a new slot) if it does not boot after that then, there is possibly a problem with the RAM slot on the motherboard.

I need to unlock a iMac running OS 10.6.1


Step 1:

Turn off your iMac G5

Step 2:

Power it back on. Right when you hear the startup sound, hold down Command and S together. This will bring up a black and white terminal prompt.

Step 3:

If at this point, it asks for a password (firmware password), power back down the iMac, change the amount of RAM (remove one stick of RAM and leave the other in), turn the computer back on and when you hear the start up sound hold down Command + Option + P + R. Keep holding until it restarts again. Once it restarts again, let it boot up, then shut it down again and put the stick of RAM back in. This will reset the firmware password and should allow you to continue onto the next step.

Step 4:

Once you are successfully at the command prompt, type the following commands, pressing enter after each line.

mount -uw /
rm /var/db/.AppleSetupDone
shutdown -h now

Step 5:

That's it! Once you boot back up, you should have a brand new administrator account that you can use to access all files and remove other accounts.

Add more ram


hi-
To add ram - look on the back of the lap top. You will see some screws that are holding down a little door. There may be two of these. Remove the screws on the ram cover and remove ram cover

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Ram slots are stacked. you have to remove the top one first.
1- press the buttons on the sides of the ram chip, and then it will pop up and towards you.
2- 2- pull this ram upwards and out
3- from there, you can take out the other chip, if there is one, or you can start installing.
4- installing the new ram chips is just as easy
5- line up the slots in the chip, then push it in as far as you can without breaking it.
6- then push it down so that you hear it click on both sides, and doesn't budge.
7- Repeat using the top chip.
This should do it –
I hope it helps- please rate me – thanks

Burning smell , Microwave not turning off


the control circuit shorted out from the cleaning session and kept the microwave on so long with nothing to cook that it has cooked itself I'm sorry to tell you. Probably not worth repairing

Burning smell from Microwave


If you clean any appliances always plug out the unit power supply do spray any liquid in the unit that can enter inside the control, instead just wipe it with rug not spray. In this situation you have to call for a qualified technician. Maybe there are some wires that burned or rust in the control that cause the short circuit inside the unit..
