Hi I was trying to be clever and fit an extra bit of RAM in my PC..Unfortunately i didnt seem to work and when i started the pc up..It has strted to make a continious beeping sound with no breaks..Any ideas ? Im guessing that i messed up something when i try to fit the RAM... Thanks in advance for any help. Andy
One beep is ram failure Your old ram isn't seated correctly. Or you have have not earthed yourself and put a static charge across the ram chips. Also check your graphic card it could be unseated. You don't say if your computer can boot up if it is any of the above it won't boot up.
During the un-install process you may be asked if you want to re-start your computer, DO NOT re-start at this point, let Revo continue. You will eventually get the option to Select All and to Delete - DO SO. You will be given the same options a second time, again DO SO, do not be picky, just accept all that Revo chooses. After clicking on Finish, re-start your computer.
When you change any hardware inside the system - it's ESSENTIAL that main power is removed first. Either by switching off at the mains, the back of the PSU (if there is a switch) - or better still by taking out the power lead.
This is because all other switch offs are soft switch offs - there is still power on the motherboard. It can blow RAM, plug-in cards, drives if you fail to do so.
Also on older systems, unused RAM sockets can accumulate dirt inside them, which gives contact problems when fitting RAM to them for the first time.
Power/Power Supply - you can only check that all connections are properly in place, that fuse in Mains plug is ok, nothing loose. Loose Card - could be any of the cards (usually the PCI cards) attached to mobo are properly fitted, not loose or not been disturbed by anyone going in to fit RAM etc. RAM fitted properly. Short - carefully look for any signs/smells of burning anywhere within the case.
