Question about Syntax SV266M Motherboard
In an attempt to upgrade from sdram to ddr, used Crucial Website to identify correct memory for Syntax p4vm226 motherboard, I receive errors. I have removed the 256 M Sdram before installing the DDR 512 Module from Crucial. I cannot find any settings in the BIOS or MB to change memory types.
If you are having trouble with the memory, if i remember rightly, to the right of the memory slots are a long black stip jumper which has to be removed to use DDR memory.

Hi, If I may add to the other posts, 1. If the problem persist with the new or the old memory, then it is not a memory problem; 2. Jumper on Clear CMOS/BIOS and removing the small battery should set the system back to default, of course for normal operation, it should be set back to normal position; 3. It is possible that it is not a PSU problem, it is likely that the PSU is ok and just doing its job of switching off probably due to a fault at the motherboard; 4. The MB fault maybe be anything. Try removing everything except mb & front panel wires and the psu (video card,cables to your drives, memories). Check if on powerup, fans will spin normally and not just start then stops; if it works reinstall everything, if not: 4.1 Remove your motherboard from the back panel plate, remove the front panel connector/wires (it is a good idea to mark them down or copy how they are connected), remove power supply. Place mb on top of an old newspaper or something (as long as not metal or conductive), Install PSU power connectors, short/jump power on pins (where the front panel connectors/wires were connected before). If it works, your set to go, If not, maybe for some unknown reasons the mb is fried. Other possible causes of start/stop spin of fan: reset switch stuck, bent pins in memory slot, inverted IDE cable (though not likely but possibly), MB sensing fan is not or malfunctioning, fried CPU, BIOS (though normally there is a warning of boot block or something like that), no keyboard present. Of course, I am assuming that you have replaced the PSU with a new or known good one as you have comment/posted previous to this. Hope this works out for you and give you further ideas. Pls comment/post back should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.
