MyPC is getting restart everytime I put on, few after installing 512MB RAM with 400 MHz Speed. As per installation guide my motherboard (Asrock 845GV) supports RAM with speed 333MHz. My delear said that it will support. Please help me what should I do, what could be the problem ? Is my RAM faulty ? or my motherboard doesnot support high speed RAM ? My dealer says to change Jumper setting. Please help.
1. Make sure the memory is seated firmly in the motherboard and the clips are fastened. 2. When it boots up try to hit the key to get you into the CMOS setup screen. If you make it in the CMOS setup save and exit. 3. Follow the motherboard instructions to clear the CMOS. Involves jumper or removing battery etc.. the process varies with manufacture and model. If it starts working check the capacitors on the motherboard to see if they are blown on the bottom, leaking brownish gunk or bloated. 4. Put the old memory back in and see if it works normally. May not be compatable or backwards compatible.
