    The beeps don't stop actually, they just keep going and going and going until you turn it back off. Right before that though, you'll hear "tock, tock tock" before the beeps.

    Re: RAM problems

    You have a bad part somewhere. If you take the 512MB ram chip out and reboot does the beeping stop? If not try the 1 gig one, if still no luck try removing other cards like maybe the sound card or other PCI cards. Do it until you either run out of parts you can remove or the beeping stops. If the beeping stops then you have found your bad part (assuming you only removed 1 at a time).

    There isn't any part that I know of that is failing...because this is not the first time I upgraded ram, and this stupid beeping happened last time too. Compared to that time, all the parts have been new except for anything that was built into the motherboard...so if it's something in the motherboard then I'm sorta ****ed.

    And to answer your question sometimes the beeping happened to the 1 gb and sometimes it happens to the 512, that is why it is driving me up the wall...btw thanks for continuing to help me out, this computer drive me nuts....

    Repeated beeping (endless) in Award Bios means your motherboard is having a undefined memory error. Unfortunately, this also could be just about anything. It does say something though if this happens with either stick installed by themselves. You could even have a bad memory seat.

    Not to offend you, but are you 100% sure you are using the right spec memory?

    Actually, I just found it. Your mobo can only accept chips up to 512 per slot. Who said that originally? Len? Chief? Hats off to you.

    Thanks know1, but here's the funny part once again...your picture is exactly the same page I have in my manual, and we can clearly see that it doesn't say it support 1gb Ram right?? However, as I am typing right now, the computer is running on that 1GB stick.

    No, unless you took out the 512MB chip I would say it is using 512 MB from each of the chips...not just the 1 gig...but then again...who knows. It is just weird it would do that. Also weird is the fact it can support up to 3 GB of ram but only 512 MB of ram per slot (back to a basic math class for them).

    While you can just take the larger chip out and replace it with 2, 512 chips. I would look at upgrading your motherboard instead. As long as you make sure the new board will support all your hardware...50-150 more bucks and you will live a happier life.
