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.
This message "Checking NVRam" is part of the BIOS/CMOS POST even before Windows loads up.
Offhand two things you can try:
1. Do a CMOS reset by temporarily moving the jumper near the battery to the opposite pair or by removing the Lithium battery for a couple of minutes or as prescribed by your motherboard's user manual;
2. If #1 is a no go, perhaps you should consider flashing your BIOS.
If neither works out, it is possible that you have a hardware/motherboard problem and would require replacement.
Hope this be of some help/idea. Post back with your motherboard brand/model, how things turn up or should you need further information.
Good luck and kind regards.
