    I have an AMD Athlon 64 X2 4200+, ASUS M2V motherboard and am running Windows XP Home. I have been trying to upgrade RAM and bought 4X OCZ P800R22GK DDR2 1Gb sticks.

    The computer boots with two sticks inbserted (ie. 2Gb) but as soon as I insert the 3rd or 4th it fails to boot.

    Any ideas??

    I dont want to start messing about with the BIOS just yet if I don't have to.

If you have the users manual or can find it online, first try to diagnose the beeps that the MB makes. Generally there is a troubleshooting section that will give you a list or error beep codes.

If it is just the fan making noise and you feel that you can remove the thing, I have had luck peeling back the sticker on the center of the fan and adding a couple drops of thin oil (mineral oil tends to do the trick) to the bearing in the fan. Spin the fan a few times to get the stuff worked in and then try it out.

ABIT-BL7 make sound

For reference, specifically, this would be indicative of an alarm on the motherboard. The only typical alarm of this nature would be an overtemperature alarm, either for chassis or (more typically) CPU temperature. In this case, it sounds like the CPU fan was failing, causing the CPU to overheat; once the threshhold temperature was reached (BIOS configurable), the alarm sounded. Remember, boys and girls, if your computer is making a sound like an ambulance, there's probably something bad going on.
