    Default problem with ram.

    sometimes when i boot my computer up there is a loud and continuous beep. the only time when i heared this beep is when i replace my single piece of ram and i dont push it in properly so i dosent connect and the bios dosent detect any ram when i boot. but this time it just occured out of the blue and ive checked the ram and its connected properly. this happens like 50% of the time and its frustrating me.

    P.S my computer is very very old. my mainboard dosent even have intergrated audio and is AGP 4x.. so you can imagine how old it is.

    Faulty RAM dude. Plain and simple. But finding a replacement stick could be tricky. I'm assuming you have SDD RAM, so if you ask around you might be able to find one at a steal of a price

    I had some problems with 2GB of my DDR2 RAM too. I just overclocked them and the problem was solved.

    Look up what BIOS you have (the manufacturer, as in AMI, Award, Phenoix, etc.). Once you know that, you can count the beeps and that will tell you exactly what the problem is.

    Continuous beeps generally mean that you have a bad power supply or mobo. Check the connection of the power supply to the motherboard while your in there.

    Could be your RAM though. That shit either lasts 20 min or 20 years, seems like.


    On a side note, that is some funny stuff Jyuu. First time I ever heard of overclocking fixing something. :P
    Vol~

    thanks to Silverwmoon!

    I know. It's hilarious.
    I dramatically reduced the timings and now it runs faster than ever.
    SISoft Sandra (benchmrking) shows that my RAM is running at 270% of its normal speed.
    Checking for bad RAM shows that my RAM has no errors.

    if u live in humid area then if some moisture gets into ram it makes such beeps. take out the ram clean it with a soft dry cloth replace it properly.(if possible put another packet of silica in the cpu)
