Hey I have a problem with my pc. I have no ram in it and when I turn it on I have no display and get 3 short beeps then it turns off. I was wondering because my ram is coming by post and I might get it today but I wanted to see if I could get to the bios

Is this normal when there is no ram? or is this another problem as there is no signal for video.
I used hdmi so maybe its lack of drivers? I don't know. Please help I would greatly appreciate it thanks!

Best solution

You need RAM!

Come back after you're put it in, if there's even a need after that...

Don't have to be blunt about it I was only asking a question as to why a pc would not post.

With no ram in the motherboard you will get 3 beeps becasue it does not pass the POST process of the BIOS, and you will not see anything on the screen PERIOD.


I figured as much but thanks for answering, I know I need ram so no need to be like "PERIOD"
