Hi! I have a problem with my computer. Every time I turn it on there a message "Checking NVRAM" during booting. And it stays there and won't continue to detecting the Hard Disk, etc... Any help would be very much appreciated. Thanks!

Sounds as though your new RAM may not be compatible with the ECS.This is most certainly the case if the system boots correctly with the old RAM back in place.You may need to check the specs for this mobo on the EliteGroup website to find out what RAM is compatible.
i think u are trying to upgrade ur ram with ur existing ram, if this then plz check ur old ram frequency and then select another ram with same frequency, means u have to install rams with same frequency. i hope u can understand what m i saying.
You could have had a corrupted update. Do you have the CD that came with the computer? There is a BIOS restore utility on it. Download the 1st BIOS version from the website and see if you get the same results.
Do you know how to get into the BIOS setup? You can set it up for default in the BIOS settings. If it isn't saving them after restarting your computer, you should replace the battery to the motherboard.
Hi stan_z4, do you have the manual for you're board?
I'm showing the P4VMM2 is made by ESC = EliteGroup.
Which is not listed above (Intel D845EPI).
If you do have the board EliteGroup P4VMM2 than turn to page 11 in the user manual. The jumper for the cmos/bios JBAT1, Pins must be set to 1 & 2. If JBAT1 is set to pins 2 & 3 you will reset you're bios every time you boot up.
disconnect drive 'A' floppy drive and see if it will boot up without it connected.
It may be that the floppy is faulty if you know the ide cable is on the correct way round, as your pc may be set to halt on all errors
When you turn the computer on do you see or hear any of the following:
-Does the power LED turn on and if so for how long?
-When you turn you power on listen closely for any sounds like hard drives or fans starting up.
-Does anything show on your monitor, if yes what exactly?
-When turned on do you hear any beeping sounds from the computer? If you do listen for the pattern of long and short beeps and let us know what they are.
If you see absolutely nothing you should try testing the socket the computer is plugged into. Fuses blow, power strips die cords develop shorts so unplug the computer and plug in a lamp to verify you?re getting power. If that doesn?t turn up anything let us know the answers to the questions above plus any other observations and we?ll try to help.
