Strange problem with my computer

Hi all
i have a strange problem with my desktop.....
the configuration is....amd x2 4200+, asus m2nmx motherboard, transcend 2gb ddr2 memory, seagate sata hdd.....
the problem is that intermittently the computer hangs while a beeping sound is heard from the cpu.....there is no specific activity which causes this problem...it is random and intermittent......at this time the keyboard stops responding but the mouse is functional for some time after which it hangs too......
the machine works well after switching off for some time......
i have shown to 2 different techs but they thought th problem was software related.......
the comp has been formatted once for this purposebut the problem is recurrent.....
i tried swapping motherboards, swapping ram, checking hard disk for bad sectors, reapplying the thermal paste, cleaning the system but nothing is working.......
can anybody guide me in this matter.......

The sound is not coming from the cpu, but from the speaker within u're case ... Usually the beeps' appears when starting the computer (as warning from the BIOS, that it found a problem). On the motherboard manual, or at the manufactour's site, u should find a list of what each beep means (shot bepp, long beep, combinations ...) and so identify the problem.

But most probably u have a power issue, perhaps a short between the motherboard and the case, so try to isolate the MB. Or even u can remove all components (power supply included) out of the case, so that no components have contact between them (other the connections needed ), and so u;l know for sure if a short is u're problem (presuming that the power supply is good )

U can also try a BIOS update

The manual for your motherboard states:

For dual-channel memory configuration (2), you may:

• install identical DIMMs in all four sockets OR

• install an identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A1 and DIMM_B1 (yellow

sockets) and another identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A2 and

DIMM_B2 (black sockets)

* Always use identical DDR2 DIMM pairs for dual-channel model. For

optimum compatibility, we recommend that you obtain memory modules
from the same vendor.

Grapghics card or ram?


No need for extra memory, your onboard video card is truly ancient- replace it with the best PCI-E video card you can buy.

Motherboard acer A1100-B1300A.... ????


Knowing the model of the mobo will not do anything if you know it takes
DDR2 5300.

And you can find tons of 1GB,2GB,4GB sticks.

If you want to know what memory MFG are compatible with you system
go to the Acer website.

As you can see at the website I posted below there are a lot of memory you can get.


Here are 12 different brands of 5300 2GB sticks of memory.

If your sure the motherboard takes 5300.

I need changes my memory 2 pcs @ 1GB DDR1 PC3200 with 2 pcs @ 2GB DDR2 PC6400 in Asus P5VDC-MX Motherboard. please advice. Thank you


Number of Memory Slots: 2×184pin + 2×240pin
Memory Standard: DDR 400/DDR2 533
Maximum Memory Supported:2GB

PC6400(DDR2 800) is not supported by your motherboard. Also max memory is 2GB. PC4200 is the fastest memory you can install. There might be a BIOS update available from ASUS website to increase the speed but you would have to check the site.

Can you mix 1gb and 2gb dimms in the same machine (for a total of 6gb)? I added two 2gb 1066 DDR2 dimms (''OCZ'') to a PC that already had two 1066 DDR2 1gb dimms (''Kingston''). I moved the 1gb dimms to...


Your MB is AM3 with 128MB DDR3-1333 built-in, four 1.8 Volt DDR2-1200+ depending on cpu. Have you enabled cpu 64 bit extensions? Tried slowing down your memory bus?
My ASUS use dual channel for dual core cpu. I have 2 yellow and 2 black dimm sockets. Both dimms in yellow is single channel, one in yellow and one in black is dual channel. Might try 2,1,2,1 rather than 2,2,1,1 order. If only your 2 1GB dimms are seen then why do you get 4 GB from 1GB+1GB? Sounds like sockets 1,2 are giving you 4GB and 3,4 don't work? Are the 1GB+1GB in 3,4 visible if the dimms in 1,2 are removed? Per Gigabyte page your AMD Phenom II 920 is AM2+ : "Note: Due to AMD AM2+ CPU limitation, memory module DDR2 1066 or above speed is only supported by 1 dimm per channel." Per AMD (which does not show your cpu, AM3 cpu fit AM3 or AM2+ socket and support ddr2 and ddr3, AM2+ cpu only work in AM2+ socket and support ddr2 only.

You will have to buy (4) 1gb sticks (2gb sticks not supported)
To use all four gigs of ram you need a 64 bit os.32 bit only supports 3gb of ram. Hope this helps!

Memory Issue


yeah you should upgrade. Windows xp 32bit only support up to 3gb memory. You should upgrade to 64bit.
And your specs? Yeah it can run 64 bit operating systems or if you like, use Windows Vista x86 or x64 with Service Pack 1.
