I am having the computer with Intel 845GVSR motherboard,P4 Processor,128 MB RAM Configuration. When i switch on the system, three beep sounds come and the system is not booting. But the RAM is in working condition.No problem in RAM. One day there was a melting smell from my system.Immediately i switched off it and i felt some heat in the first end of the memory slot. Because the RAM is not in the position at the time. Fromthat time onwards it gives this problem? I am not using PCI slot or any card.

Re: 3 beep sound-no boot
That means a short in contacts on memory slot, or a component on board melting down. If this happened it is possible that the motherboard is faulty. If you are lucky the motherboard will read memory on one of memory slots, more likely it wont read memory at all. Due to the cost of labor required to test and fix the motherboard usually it is worth replacing it rather than fixing it. A P4 motherboard starts from around $50, on Ebay you can find tested and guaranteed second hands from $20.

Reset the CMOS setup after putting the battery. You have 768MB RAM. So check with the alternate memory module with different slots. If not helpful, check the RAM with another PC. Lastly get the BIOS updated or motherboard repaired from component level motherboard repairer. You may have damaged the motherboard by putting undue pressure while plugging the connectors.
Yes you can, the speed will be increased approximately more than 50%. There's also advantage if you can install two 512mb, which you'll see it as "dual channel", sometimes this is better as per the system configuration.
Good luck. Thank you for using FixYa.
For that first open cpu cabinet then refix RAM memory try it in defferent slot on motherbord. Pull cmos cell from motherbord for 10 minutes so all settings goes to defaults. Then open processor fan and processor then refix both. Clean dust from all parts. Reconnect ATX power connector to motherbord. Reconnect power cable and sata or ide cable to harddisk. If any PCI cards are installed then remove it from pci clot then check. Make sure your motherbord is not ground with cabinet check in outside of cabinet . Let me know if you need further assistance.
As you probably know 3 long beeps on an Intel motherboard is memory failure. Even if RAM is good your Motherboard may have problems in reading your ram module. If you are using a PCI or AGP video card try also removing and putting back video card, video adapters use shared RAM and can give you troubles with RAM. Always perform all maintainance on motherboard with power unplugged and avoid to touch contacts and circuits with your finger. If the 1GB module is new, verify with seller that your motherboard support this memory, some motherboard do not support double density RAM.
Fix for older motherboards like Intel 845GVSR etc.,
HERE IS THE SOLUTION FOR FIXING DISPLAY PROBLEMS.... (This solution works for any Intel Motherboard)
No need to donwload or install any drivers. Vista has everything built in.
Only thing is it needs atleast 128 Mb of Video Memory, but for older motherboards like Inter 845 by default the Video Memory is configured to 64 Mb which is resulting in your problem.
So what you have to do is...
Restart your computer > Press DEL Key and Go to BIOS Settings > Advanced > Video Configuration
1. Change "AGP Aperture Size" from 64 Mb to "128 Mb or Higher" 2. Leave "Primary Video Adapter" as "Integrated" 3. Change "Frame Buffer Size" from 1 Mb to "8 Mb"
and then press F10(i.e., Save changes and continue).
Sometimes, for the first time you may see screen not aligned properly, in that case just restart once more and Vista will automatically adjust the alignment for you.
Also, you can change the resolution to your desired one manually as follows...
1. Click "Start Button" 2. Right click on "Computer" 3. Select "Properties" option from the context menu. 4. Scroll down and find "Disply Settings" option and click it. 5. Adjust Resolution Size and Mode.
NOW, ENJOY USING VISTA.....
