  1. Ok, I'm having a really, really bad time with this. Just got the new 256 ram, and everytime I boot with it in the expansion slot (or w/e the slot it called). Now the computer wont even boot. The power goes through and everything, the lights light up, but I hear three beeps and it just keeps beeping. The monitor doesnt show anything, and nothing else gets through.

    I'm thinking just to build my own, and jump on this one... kinda like this ===> :bounce:


    If anyone can find out a way to help me, please, HELP ME!

    We need your system specs. 3 beeps usually mean bad RAM or there could be a compatability issue with your motherboard.

    hmm... I did some looking around...

    and with the PC numbers.. they have to match with the original sticks of ram (unless i have to buy new ones to replace those)?
