Repeated RAM failures with Biostar TForce motherboard
Posted on 2009-04-28
Hopefully this is the right zone for this question. Yesterday I began having random lockups, errors and BSOD's under Windows Vista 32-bit. Today when I powered on the system the drives and fans power on, but I receive long beeps (long beep, pause, long beep, etc) and have no display.
Tried clearing CMOS, but was only able to power on the system by running one stick of memory. When adding the second back, even in 2nd set of dimms, it would either not power on or I would receive BSOD's upon booting to Vista.
This is the second time in the last year the _exact_ same symptons occurred and was solved then by replacing the memory. It's now happened again.
My question is, does the source of the problem sound like it's coming from the power supply or from the motherboard itself?
E4300 @ 3.0GHz
Biostar Tforce 695PT
Super Talent 2GB DDR2 800 (replaced Buffalo Firestix)
768MB eVGA 8800 GTX
Ultra X-Finity 500W
Thanks in advance!
