    You put a RAM module into a PCI slot? Did I read that correctly? And then put it where it belongs?

    I'm sorry, it just reads a little confusing. Please try explaining it again

Should have been a lots of beeps as well. I really wonder how well it would run with a memory stick in a pci slot tho i suspect you would need a hammer to install it that way.

Why is my e-machine giving me 4 beeps and wont boot up?

Usually 3 or 4 beeps in a row on many systems is a RAM issue.
If you have multiple RAM sticks try to remove one while the system if off and unplugged. Turn it on and see if the beeps continue. If so, remove the other ram stick and put back in the first stick you removed.
Repeat the process for each stick of ram until the beeping stops.
If it stops, this means you have found the bad ram module and can replace it.
Some computers requires ram to be installed in pairs, and that the pairs match (Check the stickers on the ram to ensure both are the same type and speed)
If the problem continues after removing and testing each stick of ram, you may want to have a service professional / Computer Repair shop take a look at the computer for further testing.

For 5 years i had 1 gb memory single stick in my eMachines W3502 desktop PC, and it was running good, untill i installed windows 7 ultimate 64bit, it`s still runing good, but sometimes it gets slow because...

Do you get any error beeps when you turn on your computer? Check this list here:

Also, there are three different types of RAM: DDR1, DDR2 and DDR3. I have never come across a computer that will run two different types simultaneously, if your motherboard supports both DDR2 and DDR3 (The pins and key are different, so they won't fit in a non supported slot)

If both sticks of RAM are exactly the same, try running it in dual channel mode, by inserting the RAM sticks in the same coloured slots on motherboard, providing your motherboard supports this

Dell 6000 Inspirion wont boot after trying to replace RAM

use ac power
try the 1 gig in each slot make sure it's secure.
If system still won't boot
then restart and try to get into bios setup
then set to default settings restart
if still not successful then replace the old ram make sure it's secure in the slots and restart
Then i would suggest taking new ram back and if you give them your make and model they can suggest ram for you

3 beeps wont boot

it is probably a ram error,

Unplug the computer and unclip the ram and remove it, clean the ram sticks and the slot that it goes into with a small dry paintbrush. While you have the unit open clean the dust away with a small paintbrush and a hoover at the ready. If you have more than one ram stick, replace one at a time to determine if you have a problem with both or one. If it boots with one, then shut down remove plug from wall socket and then replace the other one too. If it works okay then fine, if it causes problems then you know that the other stick is bad. If it does not boot on replacing first stick, then remove it and put the other stick in and try again.

I hope this helps

There may be many causes.

First, if you get any Beeps, recommend you to remove and reinsert the Memory(RAM) sticks.

Do try booting after removing the CMOS Battery(The one like a coin on the motherboard). Check the manual for instructions to remove the CMOS Battery.

Emachines 1900+ gets power to the monitor and computer but wont boot

Buy a dianostics card, and find out if its the RAM, CPU, OR Motherboard. (sounds like a ram or CPU problem though) if you have more than one stick of ram in the system, take one out, and power it up, if still not response, to the other stick out, and put the stick you took out the first time, and put it back in.
