I have an older PC I dragged out to see what I haveon the hard drive, but it won't boot up.

When I turn it on, nothing appears on the screen, and I get 2 beeps. This indicates a parity circuit failure, I have an AMI BIOS, IntelD845HV mobo.

I've tried booting up with each individual stick of RAM and that doesn't change anything so I don't think it's that. Hard to say what else it could be... anyone have any ideas or had this problem before?

try a lithium 3v battery, unhook cables, wait a day.

batteries are 3-5 years and the 845s are there.

I recently sparked one to life to get no video, after realizing the battery was needed. someone put ddr400 where 333 should have been, so it was deemed a bad board with two problems.









I a grateful a majority of people are stupid....makes me feel smahtuh.

Thanks but I've already resolved the problem actually, just needed to reset the BIOS
