Specs: Linux
Got my PC hang up for a week because of memory problem. Got a RAM 2gb pc800 then i decided to put a 1gb pc667. And then when i boot up my pc. It didnt work, then i removed the 1gb. Then boot my pc up again and its not working anymore. How could it possibly happen that my 2gb got damaged? And my motherboard always beeping.

BIOS beeps don't necessarily mean there's a problem with the RAM. The beeps may be a combination of short beeps and long beeps and that tells you where the problem lies.

Please post make and model of your PC and the sequence of the beeps.

Did you make sure that the machine was unplugged when inserting or removing the memory?

Chances are that you nudged the old memory, even if you did not intend to move it. It is possible that the contact is tarnished. Remove the old memory, clean the edge contacts with a clean pencil eraser, then pop it in and out of the socket 4 or 5 times to then burnish the socket, cleaning it as well. See if that helps.

Look at:
for beep codes for your BIOS or google for the chart for your motherboard specifically.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

✔ Best Answer
Try your new sticks of RAM 1 by 1 in every slot, if you get the beeping in every slot with both sticks it would indicate that your RAM slots on the motherboard are corrupted. If both sticks are not working in the same slots and working in others, it may indicate that some of the slots are bad but others aren't.

If different sticks of RAM don't work, then beeping usually indicates a bad mobo.
