  1. Hi

    i just installed 2 sticks of HP memory in an Iqon PC and all it does now is give 1 long beep and nothing else

    even putting the old memory in has the same effect


    can memory blow your board


    oh and i tested the memory in an HP 5700 PC and one stick wont be seen, could this faulty stick have caused the other PC to fail. ?


    edit

    the mobo is an MSI 7222 if its screwed is there any other MSI board available that has the same setup, so that i can just stick his HDD in it and get it up and running.

    I suppose you have tried removing all the Ram and power connectors, and held the ON button in for 20secs
    You could also manually reset the Bios to defaults (refer to your manual located HERE for instructions)
    Then put one stick of the original back in and test

    I have no more options
    I had a faulty motherboard yesterday, the power supply and Ram c/o didn't fix it. So I thought right then, replace motherboard
    Actually I ended up replacing the whole computer, it was too old anyway.
