Kingston Ram Module conflict
Posted on 2006-06-12
Okay here is the situation... We built a windows 2000 server machine with a gigabyte motherboard. Everything is working perfectly until we decide to upgrade the ram from 512 to 1gb. Now the board supports the full gb and I used the kingston utility to find a compatable chip but everytime i put the chip in there is no screen output and I get three beep codes before post. Since there is no output on the screen I am thinking that it is a conflict with the video card? it is just a simple onboard vid card, I am not sure what make and model. I also wondered if I got a bad chip, but usually when you get a bad chip it displays some form of error rather than a lack of output. It just seems odd that kingston would gaurantee compatability with the given results. Any suggestions are appreciated thanks.
