I'm PC Advisor reader from India I have an assembled PC runs on win Me I recently find my PC failed to start up with no image on screen and continuous beep. I have to switch off the PC using mains.BIOS is award. Motherboard contains 3 memory slots. Only one is occupied with 64MB Ram I believe this is 168 pin DIMM and SDRAM module
I cleaned and reseated the module. But it didn't fix the problem I believe sound and graphics is on board. so there is nothing to fix with graphics card. PCI slot contains modem.
I wish to know what are the chances to fix this problem if i reseat the existing single module in another memory slot, say slot two or last slot.Is this possible? Does this require any change in BIOS setup program(if i reseat memory card in another slot)
Continuous beeping is usually a memory problem, depending on what BIOS your computer has click here. As you only have one memory module, the only way you can be sure is to borrow another stick. Changing the slot the memory might work, but it depends on the motherboard make and model. There is very unlikely to be any BIOS setting change to be made.
