You should try to reseat them again. Make sure the retaining clips are able to grab onto them and that they are inserted the correct way.

Try putting the memory stick into a different bank and see if that does the trick....obivously you have put the stick in the right way....
If you still have a problem,the stick may be faulty due to the static in your fingers,what i tend to do,if i,m replacing anything onto a motherberboard i tend to hold on to the chasis of the tower or laptop to earth myself,or better still purchase a earthing wrist band.
it is rare but static from yourself can make some electrical components unuseable..

Hope this helps

Just built 2 computers all the same parts both beep 3 times at startup intel dg41wv motherboard


Three beeps usually indicates a memory failure on your board. Make sure that you have pushed your memory cards (ram) all the way into their slots until they click. If that does not solve your problem then your ram is incompatible with your motherboard and you will have to get new ram (or a new motherboard, but if you do that make sure the new motherboard still has the same socket size for your processor). Best of luck to you.

Five long beeps at a range of five seconds then, repeats


Five long beeps for a modern motherboards indicates a processor failure. If you wish to remove the processor and re-seat it (reconnect it to see if it begins to work again) make sure to get some thermal compound to put between the CPU chip and the heatsink. More info at: http://www.hardwaresecrets.com/article/How-To-Correctly-Apply-Thermal-Grease/274

  • 5 - Processor failure

Motherboard doesn't seem to want to access 3rd memry slot


Have you tried sticks in slots 1 and 3 with nothing in 2. If the third slot still doesn't work then its probably fried.

3 short beeps.


This indicates a memory problem

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.

3 beep sound


the 3 beeps means memory problem.
un-install the memories, take a look the stick and the slot. make sure they are in good condition.
reinsert the memory firmly, and make sure they are lock down.
if the still appear, you need to get new memories for the board.

Computer turns on and beeps.


I suggest you check you memory sticks, and make sure they are seated properly. The long beep usually signifies a memory problem. If you have 2 memory sticks, I suggest removing 1 of them, then tuen on the PC, if it still beeps, powerdown by holding the power button in until it shuts down, then replace the removed one, and remove the other, if it boots, fine, then you will need to replace the memory that you have removed, but,,,,,if you only have 1 memory stick, I suggest you replace it, if the pc still beeps a long beep, then 1 of the memory sockets is bad, and a motherboard replacement is needed, either case, that long beep is a memory problem.
