Continuous short beeping after RAM upgrade

I recently bought some ddr400 (pc3200) ram to upgrade my computer with. The cpu is currently a p4 2.66GHz 133MHz (533MHz) and my understanding was that the ram would run at a reduced speed to match the processor. I put the ram in a got the continuous beeping when the system is booted, so I checked the manual and found "continuous short beeps: Power error", so thinking my old 175W psu finally wasn't giving enough grunt for the new ram I replaced it with a 400W. Still beeping. So I overclocked the cpu to 200MHz (800MHz) ie a match for the ram and STILL beeping. Now I'm scratching my head. What is up with this motherboard?

    I've tried to old ram back in and it works, but this should be the right ram, it's ddr not ddr 2 or 3 and according to the manual for the m/b it is the right ram. There is a qualifier in the manual however that says "DDR 400 memory module is only supported when using FSB 800 Pentium 4 processer." That's why I cranked the cpu up to fsb 800 but It didn't solve the problem.

No need to replace motherboard.The beep is an error code.

Try setting you bios to default or factory settings.Overclocking will in time cause a heat issue.

Use known to be good ram.Ive had ram bad right from the package.

If you want to go faster then consider a new mb and processor.

I have the same problem with my PC. I could not solve the problem by changing RAM and PSU. Finaly I had to replace the MB with the new one. So this is the problem with the MB and The Motherboard should be changed. Please replace the MB with the new one.

Check the the cpu, ram and video card are seated properly. If they all are, then the board is defective and will need to be replaced.

Look for labels on the RAM: PC100 or PC133 or DDR266 or DDR333 or DDR400 or PC2100 or PC2700 or PC3200.

Since you cited 'DDR400', you need to purchase 'DDR400' RAM.

the beep sound on system starting before booting starts refers no RAM in system, if you need to upgrade your RAM then go for DDR-SDRAM PC3200 200MHz 512MB 0r 1GB.

I PLUG IN 2 NEW 512 MEM PCBS & WLL NOT BOOT. 1 BEEP FOLLOWED BY 3 BEEPS FOLLOWED BY 3 BEEPS FOLLOWED BY 1 BEEP. THEN NOTHING.


Remove the "new" RAM.
Look at the labels for PC2100 or PC2700 or PC3200,
or for DDR266 or DDR333 or DDR400.
Compare with the label on one of the "old" sticks of RAM.

Be sure that the labels on the "new" RAM are "equal" or "higher" than the labels on the "old" RAM.
For example, if the "old" RAM are DDR333, then you can use DDR400, but your computer will not accept DDR266.

Reinsert one of the sticks of the "old" RAM.
Does it still beep multiple times?
If not, then the new RAM is *NOT* compatible with your computer.

Is their a special make of memory card, ie: ddr


According to: http://www.shopping.com/xPF-VIA-MB-FOXCONN-VIA-KM400A-400M01-G-6L-R

this motherboard has 2 slots for DDR (184pin) RAM,
and supports a maximum of 1GB of RAM per slot.

Note that DDR RAM comes in 3 speeds: DDR266 (slowest), DDR333, and DDR400 (fastest).

Buy the fastest RAM -- if the motherboard cannot run the RAM at "full" speed, the RAM will automatically slow itself down to a speed that the motherboard will support.

Hi krusty_623.

If this is new RAM, you might want to try removing the battery from the motherboard, resetting the CMOS (clears out all the old hardware settings) and putting the battery back in so that the motherboard redetects the RAM as if the setup was brand new. I've had the same problem only once on a RAM upgrade and it baffled me. Once I reset the CMOS the motherboard accepted the new RAM without any problems. I don't know if this will work for you, but it's a simple thing to try.

Few questions about RAM memory?


Solution:



i)  LOW DENSITY modules have 100% compatiility with ALL systems and ALL chipsets.
    HIGH DENSITY modules only have 10% compatibility

    here compatablity means LOW DENSITY RAM are accepted by all system(100%)  or any make           system.. HIGH DENSITY RAM are accepted by 10% by only some system or computers...


ii) in order to check system performance or amount of Computer RAM usage press the ctrl+alt+del
   simultaneously a new window(window task manager) will appear showing:

    CPU usage: showing the amount of CPU or processor utilized at that particular time.
    PF usage: showing the amount of RAM memory utilized at that particular time.
    Physical Memory: showing Total RAM Memory, Available Ram memory....

iii) baiscally they are two types of RAM they are:

    DDR1:which is older one supported by older system  or older mother boards which is costlier
    DDR2: which is latest one supported by all new system or new mother boards which is less                         costlier

    DDR: double data rated ram......which will send data at a double rate compared to SD RAM

iii) here color doesnt matter, these slots either support DDR1 or DDR2 but not both at a time
    
    DDR1 has 184 pins or gold plated pinssss... on the edge of the RAM
    DDR2 has 240 pins 

    so difference doesnot allow DDR2 to placed in DDR1 motherboards or vice versa...

iv) it does have anything to do with no of chips on the RAM but they only differ whether it is DDR1 OR DDR 2(DDR2 are much faster than DDR1)

NOTE: whatever may the the RAM, each RAM has FSB(called Frequency...) which determines the frequency of rate at which data is tranferred from RAM to processor(CPU)  usually in MHZ such as FSB 300, 400, 200 , 333...................

more the FSB the faster data is transferred to the processor(CPU)

dont worry even RAM with less FSB's work well with the processor....having 1 GB RAM or 2 GB RAM is engouh, it only matters with the speed of CPU ... but not RAM......
