If you are worried that it is a memory issue, try downloading the free and excellent Memtest 86 from here:

http://www.memtest86.com/

You can make a bootable CD which will soak-test your memory - if it will run overnight without an error then it's almost certainly not a memory issue.

Otherwise, have you tried a complete BIOS reset? This can get corrupted in ways that simply reverting to factory default won't fix. There is usuall a link on the motherboard which will clear the BIOS settings (you may need to remove the BIOS battery first). You can then start a-fresh.

Before buying more ram, try cleaning the contacts of your original ram sticks.
The best way to do this is to use a pencil eraser until the copper contacts on the sticks are clean.
Make sure you wipe off the eraser filings and deposits with a clean cloth before re-installing the memory. Make sure you don't have any lint etc on the contacts after wiping them.
Never touch the contacts with your fingers.

Inspect your ram slots and check that there is no dust or anything else that shouldn't be there.
A blow of some compressed air in a tin normally is enough to get them clean if needed.

Install your ram, and I'm certain this will fix your problems, as it is very seldom I find ram actually faulty.

To make sure your ram is without any error, you can always run a test program called Memtest+86, download here:

When i boot my computer on the windows screen it freezes i bought the TP45E combo Biostar motherboard


Try to remove the memory modules. Then try to switch the memory modules' positions in terms of slots. Example, if you have 2 RAM slots, RAM1 goes to RAM2 and vice versa.

What is the best way to resolve the freezing issues using a P4S8X-X motherboard?


there are many possible causes and solutions for your mobo problem. try these options one by one:

1. check your installed system memory. if you have two(2) modules, try removing one and leave the other one on and turn the power back "on". and vice versa. check which one works without freezing your system. remove power plugs before doing this.

2. if you only have one(1) memory module, try removing it after shutdown and unplugging the power cord and transfer the module to another slot. then power your system "on". if this doesn't work, try to slightly sandpaper the terminals of your memory module(s), just the terminals. then clean it with a new/clean small paintbrush and install it back on. power on your computer.

3. check the memory clocks of your installed memory modules. it should be of the same frequency. memory capacity (mb); it doesn't matter if one is higher than the other as long as the clocks are the same.

4. if all these options that i mentioned/stated above doesn't work. try replacing your memory module.

Memory problem


First pull cmos cell from motherbord for 10 minutes.
then open processor fan and processor then clean dust from motherbord and all parts then reconnect processor and its fan.
Then refix RAM memory .
then if it beeps so long then most of it is your RAM problem.slot is more time works fine in that case.
Check your RAM in ALL MEMORY MODULE SLOT.

Hi, open your case and remove your heatsink and fan, completely clean all dust from it, apply new paste and then remove your RAM, dust off that and the dimm slots. Replace the ram firmly and that should cure your problems. regards mistyman
