Question about Intel D101GGC Motherboard
I have just bought 2GB of RAM for my motherboard. It is two 1GB sticks. When I insert the new RAM and start up the computer one of two things happen. Either it stays on the intel screen and nothing works or it gets stuck on the intel screen and does many, many, many long continuous beeps. I have tried refitting the RAM, changing BIOS settings and putting in one stick of 1GB and trying it by itself. The new RAM is a Micron and the according to the official intel website and crucial.com, it should work. Here is the RAM's description:
I hope you can help
Hi DeezKelb, The continous beeps you are hearing is the Award bios telling you the memory is not seated correctly. Please remove the memory & re-seat the two DIMMS.
See Award bios beep codes, click on this link.
If the beeping continues. Either boot into the bios & reset from there or reset the bios by moving cmos/bios jumper page 1-16 in you're user manual to clear/reset the bios. (Remember to set the jumper back to default). Boot the PC & enter bios to setup you're prefered settings.
If you're board still continues to beep download a free program called Memest86 & run the software which will test you're memory. http://www.memtest.org/ Scroll down the page till you are under the three Screenshots. Listed there is ** Memtest86+ V2.01 (21/02/2008) ** typed in red.
You have a choice of downloading software to creat either a bootable floppy disk or a bootable CD disk.
Bootable floppy; Download - Pre-Compiled package for Floppy (DOS - Win)
Bootable CD; Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)
You're Asus board can only run up to 2GB Max memory.
Main download web site for ASUS P4V8X-X.
