Question about AOpen vKM400Am-S Motherboard

1 Answer

Did you fix your problem with the VKM400AM-S not booting, only beeping?

I added 1GB Memory to a computer today, and when I tried to reboot, all I got was beeping. No monitor display, no keyboard. Have tried swapping DIMMs to different slots to check if memory is okay, but previous memory was fine, and I was replacing a 512 with a 1GB stick.

Any suggestions?

    I don't have a motherboard manual; however, in checking futher, the motherboard is history so data was moved to another pc. Thank you for responding.

Probably your mobo does not support 1 GB RAM in one DIMM slot.. Check Motherboard Manual.

    I checked for your mobo details. It can definitely accept DDR400 type 1 GB RAM. Check if the RAM is BAD.

    Try loading defaults in BIOS & try to boot with this 1GB RAM. This may solve the problem.

Keeps beeping when on


Beeps and blinking lights tell the technician what is wrong with the computer. Count the beeps and the pattern of the beeps (3 long beeps, 1 long beep followed by 2 short beeps, etc).

Most times it's something related to the motherboard such as memory or video card.

Did you see anything post on the screen during the boot process?

Check your memory.

Remove the Power Cord, Open the Case and remove one of thememory chips. Set the chip aside then try rebooting the computer. If it boots, then you know the memory chip you set aside is bad so mark an x onit with an ink pen. If it fails to boot then move the chip to the nextmemory slot and try rebooting. If it fails take the chip out and set itaside, then put the other chip in and try booting it in both slots. If itboots, just to verify that the chip set aside is bad, mark an x on it and putit into the open memory chip slot and try booting.

Did not boot and with 3 beep sound


Remove added memory
If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.
  • Additional information about determining the type of memory to use in a memory upgrade can be found on document CH000910.
Open computer and reseat memory
Sometimes when the computer is moved and/or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.
Swap memory location
If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.
If you have more than one stick of memory try removing all but one stick of memory and boot the computer. If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory.
Try another computers memory
If you have access to another computer that uses the same type of memory try using its known good memory in your computer.
If another computers memory works you know that you have bad memory. If another computers memory does not work and it is compatible with your computer unfortunately your motherboard and/or the slots on the motherboard are defective causing it to be unable to properly read the memory, which means the motherboard will have to be replaced.
Replace memory
If you've determined or believe that the memory in y our computer is bad we suggest that you replace it.

Computer doesn't boot


This is a classic bad ram beep code. Take one of the sticks out and reboot. Then do same with next..if both are bad then beep will continue. Just buy some more RAM and install it will be fine.

Continuous Long Beeps, No Video During Boot - GA-M61VME-S2 MB


Hi.

Continuous long beeps indicate memory fault. You can try and put your memory in each of the slots. After all, maybe memory slot is faulty, not the memory itself. Clean the slots with a brush and try again. There is no need to remove PCI expansion cards nor any other hardware. If the beeps continue even with memory that you are sure is working, then it is a motherboard problem. You also tried resetting the BIOS and that's good solution. Hope it helps.

Remove the 1 gig chip. Pull you battery out and unplug the laptop. Hold the power button in for 10 seconds. Put the battery back in and plug the laptop back in again and try booting it up. This should reset the BIOS and allow it to boot. The beep codes you are talking about are a memory beep code and it is normally caused by adding memory or a loose memory stick. Also try pulling the existing memory and resetting it.
