Question about E-Machines eMonster 600 PC Desktop
I've been trying to revive my 600. I'm having trouble installing the OS and thanks to the people who have offered solutions where I posted that question. In digging in a little further I found out that there is a self diag that runs and the beeps define a problem. I have three beeps on start-up. It relates to: 64K RAM failure. Is this a motherboard issue or is there something I may have mis-configured in adding/changing out hardware?
The base 64kb memory is used by the bios to check the basics then pass through to the CPU to start everything up. Depending on your mobo make, 3 beeps could mean a ram failure or or something more sinister, check the mobo site for beep codes. If you like you can try re setting the bios on mobo look for JBAT1 terminal and move jumper from pins 1-2 to pins 2-3 for a few seconds and then back to 1-2. Restart pc and set time and ensure you get the Hard Disk drive recognised in the standard bios settings by pressing f8 or similair to auto detect drives, save then exit.
