ASUS Motherboard M4A88T-V EVO/USB3 won't post

Specs say it is a dual channel platform for the memory slots. It requires two DIMMs to take advantage of this, but you would have double check the manual if it will run with a single DIMM.

Non-stop beep sound and won't display

A constant beep, usually indicates the post is detecting no memory installed. This is usually caused by the memory not being installed correctly or incompatible memory. double check you have the correct memory for this mother board. If you have 2 chips, install one and test. If this does not work swap the memory and try again. If both chips fail, you might try a different brand of memory.

How can i able to use my usb flash drive, it won't open due to i haven't remove it while my computer is formatting.

Hi arjeevergel ,

The USB drive should work fine even if you have removed it while formatting your hard disk (if this is what you mean when you say formatting computer).

Try connecting the drive to some other slot after you install the operating system and check it it works.

If it does not work , then you can probably check it in your neighbor's PC whether it's been detected or not , if it's being detected then the problem could be that your USB ports have been disabled which you need to enable via BIOS or the hardware manager.

Hope this helps ...:)

I hav a sandisk sansa 2gb mp3 player version has a microsd memory card slot,but when i try to keep it,my player won't detect it,nor even my should i fix it?also i dont see any...

First off, have you installed the drivers for the MP3 player? That is important because without the drivers the computer will not communicate with the new devices.
You also have Windows drivers that detect Micro Cards.
Without these drivers installed there is no connection whatsoever. Go to your DEVICES and see if they are located in the inventory of hardware attached to the computer. Micro cards need to be formatted, just like a new hard drive etc. in order to communicate.

Sounds like the Memory Ram that you tried to install went haywire. Take it out and make sure this ram is compatible.

Dell PE 1600SC invalid memory configuration detected

You may need to install memory in matching pairs. If the new memory is a single 1Gb module and you didn't already have a similar one they may not work together. Try removing the original module(s) and see if it makes a difference.

Both ram not detect

More than likely the 2nd slot your trying to use is bad, however before you make that assumption try inserting a stick in the possible bad slot by itself and see if it will post. Let us know :-)
