    It's actually one single continuous silent high sound and I don't even press the power on button, but thanks for help. So the motherboard could be defect? Could explain the led(not on).

    My tower continually beeps. I have put power supply into back turn on at front of PC all fans turn on then a continues beep noise like an alarm with no further action. I have repeated the same process with no luck. What would this be?

Continuous Beeping: Memory or video problem This is usually caused by a problem with the system memory, or possibly the video card. The memory is more likely--the system complains long and loud if it can't find any usable memory, as there is no way to even start the boot process when this is the case. The motherboard itself could also be the problem. hope this helps

    hi again,
    1 continuous beep is definately memory, check your motherboard's manual for compatible memory
    supported by your motherboard
    your motherboard actually takes DDR2 800 try using kingston memory which comes with lifetime warranty sometimes cheap memory modules are not supported by some motherboards
    good luck again

Hi i just bought an asus m4a88td-m i instaled it with a amd phenom II x4, 500 watts corsair power supply, ati radeon hd 5700 1gb ddr 5 , 6gb ram ddr3 1033mhz and im unable to boot my windows 7 64bits , it...

With all that power, you need a better PSU, the CPU alone draws out 125 watts, the video card can get upwards of 50, RAM takes it down another 25, and that's half of it right there. I would suggest AT MINIMUM a 700 watt PSU. Newegg has em for you (you sound like you can find what you're looking for after all those specs you've given).
I hope this helps!

Do I need to buy 2 DDR2 Ram for my ASUS P5VDC-MX Motherboard?

with rams, if the memory it has is higher than that of your cpu, the pc will not boot up or if it is too low compared to your cpu again.

thus, you say it has got two slots right, remove both of the 512's and insert the 1gig only, run your computer, i am sure it will boot up nicely. switch it off. put one 512, if it does not boot then you should know that your ram has an excess of memory that your cpu could not apprehend to.

post a coment if this does not work.



Asus p5 vdc-x motherboard not recognizing ddr2

Ok i am just guessing here

maybe your motherboard does not support

ddr2 rams and hence it wont boot up as it does not detect any ram in the slots......

try to boot with one old and one new ram (ddr and ddr2) and post the result

are you sure whether the ddr2 ram is supported?


Ram assurance

The schematic layout of the P5VDC-MX on the user manual shows that there are 4 DIMM banks, set as 2 X 2 rows, 2 DDR2 and 2 DDR.

The user manual explicity states:

I am running different frequency modules without any problems. With the info above provided by ASUS, it may be possible that a fix could be available with a BIOS update. Otherwise, you can opt to use a lower capacity RAM along with your 1GB Corsair.

Hope this helps.


Your motherboard can take DDR or DDR2 RAM modules.

Crucial says: "Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700,DDR PC3200,DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot." No sense getting 4GB since the max is 2GB.

You can get higher speed RAM (PC2-6400) because it is backward compatible.

I would go with the 2 X 1GB Corsair from the ones listed.

Or consider the options on Crucial's site. See this page:

Two 1GB modules of DDR2 PC2-5300 run about $34 US.

(PS. Your 450W power supply will handle about anything.)

Monitor goes into 'Power Saver Mode' on boot up!

You need to upgrade your motherboard BIOS to the latest version (V.5a) to support your DUAL CORE 2.5Ghz processor... that's the problem.


System failed to boot when installing additional 2X 1GB RAMs.

you need to place them on your motherboard where the memory is installed. Place in the order of one new, one old, one new, one old stick. that way they run in dual channel.

K7VT4A-Pro Mobo


The motherboard will read 1GB DDR400 memory per slot only.
