this is the first time I've built a PC and it's been working resonable well since xmas, I've had the usual problems associated with this board: Temp, not recognising memory,hard drive etc, I'd sorted most of them out,thanks to the posts on this forum and others, but I Think I've just gone and fried my motherboard or memory sockets + memory.
I was putting my memory back in and put one in the wrong way round (it did stick a bit but the clips closed or so i thought) switched it back on , got one long beep, smelt burning, switched off won't boot and posts C1(Memory: inserted incorrectly, damaged or compatability problem), tried both memory modules in different slots still getting C1.
what do you think?
Any help will be very much appreciated
