SOURCE: RAM error with RAM Installed


The problem clearly isn't a video sharing as I was originally suspecting.
First let me inform you that even your upgrades are several generations behind the current mainstream, Not a problem as long as they are sufficient for your needs. I don't know about the CPU but the Video card is no longer supported by ATI.

Ok lets get down to the Nitty Gritty

First lets remove ALL of your cards from the PC
Video card, any PCI cards and if you have them even the ISA cards
Now remove the ram modules and the CPU

OK we should be starting with a bare Motherboard
Check to make sure that all of the power connections are attached in this case it should be a single 20 pin ATX connector

With that done make sure the IDE connectors are oriented properly there is a notch on the drives connectors that lines up with a key on the ribbon cable.

make sure this cable fully seats into the Motherboard and the drives connector(Try to route the cables so that they are tucked out of the way if possible)

Now repeat the procedure with the floppy drives ribbon cable and connector (If applicable)

Inspect the CPU make sure the heatsink and Fan are attached and mounted Flush to the CPU card
Now insert the CPU into the Slot1 making sure to pay attention to orientation. If I read right you replaced the processor with one of the same speed? if so you don't need to mess with the jumpers that are onboard for the CPU.

If it DOES need a different FSB setting the open up the user manual(Link below if you no longer have it) and find and set the appropriate settings

attach the CPU fan leads to the proper header on the Motherboard

Now check out the RAM slots, there are 2 latches at either end of each slot. Don't put the ram in yet move the latches into an upright position. The should be firm in place you should NOT be able to wiggle them. If there is some PLAY in them we might have just found your ram problem. These latches sometimes jar a little bit up and thus PREVENT the ram modules from seating properly. Any latches that had some PLAY in them just give them a bit of downward pressure (Don't have to FORCE them) until you here and/or feel it click back into place. Now fold down the latches and insert the SDRAM cards once in place fold the latches up until they LOCK into place and hold the ram steady. If any SLOTs are empty fold their latches up too (There are little sensors under these latch arms, that if ANY are down it prevents the Rams address bus from energizing to protect any improperly seated modules)

Now insert your Video card, If there is a latch at the back of the AGP slot make sure that engages properly (Don't worry if there is not one SOME of the older ones didn't have them) just make sure the card seats down all the way into its slot.

Now install any other cards I had you previously remove from the system install any wires from the front panel header that might have been removed or jarred loose, make sure that your case fans are attached to their headers.

I think your ready to give it a try NOW.
When you boot up it may pause asking you to confirm a memory checksum error as the Memory level should be different from the LAST time it boot press what button is says to do so to continue. After the ASUS logo blinks off screen press <Delete> to enter BIOS make sure the Video card setting is for AGP and not PCI press <F10> to save and exit.

This SHOULD have you up and running if not comment back and I'll try to assist you further.

For your information the last Generation of Winows supported with drivers for this board are Me/NT/ and 2000

When you are next ready to upgrade I would recommend getting a more modern motherboard with integrated graphics (If cost is an issue at the time) It will improve your upgrade and support options

Hopefully this helps you

SOURCE: cpu can not boot

I don't think it is a ram issue.Try this when the computer is booting,hit the F8 key. That boots you into safe mode where only the most necessary drivers and programs load. If it loads in safe mode that is good. A little bit of daignostic work can locate the problem after that.

SOURCE: Foxconn CPU fan making noise

It sounds like the fan bearing is shot, I'd recomend not using the computer until fan is replaced.
yes it is possible to replace the fan, i would recomend that you replace it with an aftermarket cooler. all you need is what kind of CPU you have, then find out what kind of socket it is, from there you can find the cooler you would like.

Unable to play mkv, mp4 in vlc, Mpc or Potplayer. The video is just freeze or choppy. AVI and CPU reaches 100%. My system is Dell dimension 3000, Pentium 4, 2gb ram, nvidia 6200 pci video card and 250


This is what happen to me also, but after i do some clean into my fan processor, fan graphic card, and do vacum inside my computer ( because has too much dust). Too much dust also can make your pc performance going bad.. settle about cpu performance.

Regarding you cant play mkv file and other video format. Did your computer has a software to make all video can run that we called codec code? Try to install it and play it. Maybe this software can help This is a link to download the codec code.

Four beeps pc will not bootup

Hi John Jones:

1 long, 3 short beep means >>> Bad video RAM or video card not present. You need to check your RAM. Remove RAM and insert again.

If beeps are of high frequency then CPU is overheated, check you CPU fan.

Hope it works for you.

Sometimes smaal rectangle shapes appears all over the screen while working, then we have to switchoff the system to reappear the screen

This a freezing of the system caused by the small memory (Ram memory ) or too many programs running in the same time for the capacity of the Ram ..or the CPU ..or just one faulty program or application ...Freezing the screen can be also a issue of running a program that requires video card resources much larger than available ..You should pay attention on the programs running often when the freezing is happening ..and than search on the internet for minimum requiring resources for running that application ..If the system permits you should least the Ram memory for to avoid this happening ..or use similar application with less needs from the system ..
Another cause can be the system being infected and in this case you should reinstall the operation system ..(this is probably the cause if your system has at least 1G of ram ..and 2G CPU ..cause in this case it is enough to run common application of any kind except complicated video ones..and the cause for freezing is a virus )

Intel DG31PR motherboard starts and cpu heated but on the post card it is showing not initialized please solve the problem

Check the RAM modules, reseat to make sure it makes proper electrical contact.
Check the RAM specification and motherboard specification. Is the RAM module the correct type for the motherboard
If it still does not boot up, check the RAM module - take it to your friendly computer shop to test.
Check the CPU, make sure it is seated correctly and locked into position. If possible test the CPU in another motherboard to see if it is faulty.

L20 197 model (celeron) laptop.

In 19 years of working on computers I've seen 1 bad Intel CPU and it still worked it just showed the wrong processor speed. I'd eliminate the CPU being the problem. Generally if you have a bare system with motherboard, ram, keyboard and video and they turn on the system is good. The video may cause a crash if it's bad somewhere in the bootup process going into windows but it shouldn't stop the initial bootup process. The area I would likely suspect is the hard drive. If the arm inside the drive that controls the heads is loose it can cause the drive to read sometimes when cool and then to start slipping and not read when the system is warmer. If you can get into the bios there should be someplace there to check your temperatures and voltages. Those might be a suspect area. If the power supply isn't delivering the proper voltages or the CPU is getting hot could cause problems also. I'd like to hear more about what you're seeing on the screen when this system fails to boot. Does is show the ram countup, system devices and hard drives as detected in the bootup process? Or is the screen just blank. When it doesn't boot does the hard drive light blink continuously?

PC keeps freezing on boot up

Let's narrow the problem down a bit. The biggest clue will be "where" it hangs in the boot process.

1) During (or before) the POST (power on self test).
This would signify that you have a hardware issue. Often, the system will beep at you, and you can decipher those beeps to figure out the problem. Some things that will cause a freeze here are your video card, RAM, the CPU, or even a fan (especially the CPU fan).

a) Video - if you are seeing anything on your monitor, it probably isn't video. If not, replace the video card (if using the onboard video, add an outboard card. If using an outboard card already, then swap it out with another one, boot, and see what happens.

b) RAM - swapping out chips is the only way to test it, unfortunately.

c) CPU Fan - Eyeball it and see if it is spinning. A fan failure will instigate an immediate shutdown, to prevent the CPU from burning up.

d) CPU - Another tough one. The only real solution is to replace it with another one, and see if the system boots.

If it seems to be none of the above, it may be the motherboard itself that has an issue. Once you try all of the above, you can be more certain that it is indeed a bad board.

2) During Windows startup.
This would mean you have a Windows problem. Often, a new driver or some new piece of software can alter things enough to cause a hang. Attempt a boot in safe mode (which loads only default drivers), or even restore the OS to an earlier point. If you get a BSOD (blue screen of death), you'll want to look for the error code on the page, as it will at least give you a clue as to where the problem is. Another option is to boot from the Win Install CD, and effect a Windows repair. This will fix an awful lot of problems.

Lightining Hit

When the computer gets zapped, virtually any part can be damaged, including RAM, disk drives, connectors on cabinet (eg USB), PCI cards, etc.

Usually the CPU stays safe, as the motherboard blows before CPU.

When you get this kind of damage is always better taking the computer to a repair shop, instead of DIY, as there is need to test all parts.

Ensure that you assembled Motherboard, CPU , and heath-sink properly.

Try first starting the computer with a minimal set of devices plugged to the motherboard, with only PSU, RAM (1 module), Video card if needed and CPU/Fan.

If there is no power at all then it is likely a bad PSU, if it starts but not screen, it is either a bad RAM or the motherboard had not been assembled properly, or had been damaged during assemblage.

Do you hear any beeping sound upon booting up the computer? do you hear any HD activity happening? or is the unit totally just halts to that?

I checked the specifications of your board and it seems ok (socket 478, DDR400)

Based from the symptoms you mentioned, I could easily assume that you have a problem with the board or the CPU but just to be sure, I suggest that you proceed on isloating the problem.

To do this, I suggest that you remove the HD, CD/DVD, floppy connections and any adapters cards (if any) that you have installed on the board (sound, lan etc.), as for the video, I believe your board has a built in video but having, you can use that instead. From there you check the major components:

Power: check Power supply fan, CPU fan, lights - since you getting lights already and I guess your fans are all ok, we could skip this part.

make sure that the CPU (+heatsink andfan) and memories are properly seated.

try swapping a known working ram module, if you have multiple ram modules, try using one module at a time, or you can remove all of them, anyway if its a memory problem, your PC should send out error beep codes to tell you about it. however, if nothing still happens, it means that your PC isn't processing anything, you'll have to isolate if its the board that you just bought or your CPU that is causing the problem, try reseting the board's BIOS through the reset jumper to make sure that it reverts back to factory on which are commoly set to automatically detect CPU voltage and ram speed, also you can try swapping another CPU or board if possible. You might end up replacing the new board or have it tested from where you bought it (you can perhaps bring the CPU and memory with you for the later part). Hope this helps

Cheers and best regards,
