Some mobo's don't like the SPD timings that come preprogramed on Ram, I know mine didn't. It would be helpful if you could add your spec's to your sig so we can help you better. Do you know what you Ram timings are? Also your mobo manual should have a beep code book that will tell you what the beeps mean.

Most of the time its just that most Ram these days use anywhere from 1.8-2.4 volts, thats what I'm guessing it is.

That is mostly a Memory error. Check compatibility and voltage in BIOS.

Try booting using 1 stick of RAM instead of 2. Change out the stick if it doesnt boot with the first stick you try.

alright thank you..so i there might be the chance ill have to install the second one after i get it all set up?

Yes. If you can boot up and run on 1GB in single channel mode you can try 2GB dual channel (in most motherboards thats one stick in each of the same colored slots.
If 1GB boots but 2GB dual channel does not - try 2GB in single channel mode. 1 stick side by side in the different colored slots.

Just a though... I've got a ASUS mobo. it gives me a long moris code beep is the case has been "shifted" things have moved etc.

Also, it may be the cpu contact to coolant. I hate that beep....hate it.

These are just guesses, your the eyes of the operation.

Good luck.

so the whole problem with the beeping was that i didnt plug the extra power supply in for my graphics card...the mobo didnt supply enough power alone for the board..
