Question about EliteGroup P4M800-M7 Motherboard
Heeeelp. I'm trying to help a friend by seemingly doing the simple thing of installing RAM. The motherboard is a ECS P4M800PRO-M478, and it is supposed to take DDR2 533mHz. He bought some 2Gb, and I tried to install it, but the computer wouldn't boot at all. (Ok, at first I left in the old DDR RAM, but it didn't change when I took the old RAM out). The computer didn't seem to find the hard drive at boot up. It doesn't beep, it just checks the media drives.
Then I read about this mobo, and realized it has problems. There were a couple of people who suggested upgrading the BIOS, so I went to ECS's website and successfully did the procedure to flash the mobo with the latest BIOS. The computer booted back up after I entered the date/time. Then I tried again to change the RAM to the new DDR2 memory, and no change happened. Then I tried to go back to the old DDR memory, and now it won't boot up at all.
Any help greatly appreciated. I have to leave town, and I need to at least give him his computer back in working condition.
