I recently tried to upgrade the memory on my pc from 256 to 512. I purchased the proper memory for my machine and installed it in slot 2 of 3. When I restarted the computer I received one long beep followed by 3 short beeps which told me there was a memory problem. I took out the new memory and restored the computer to the original configuration and I still get the beep code error. I have tried rearranging the dimms and even went as far as resetting the bios by moving the jumper to the reset position for 2 hours and I am still get the error beeps. What is my next step? Thanks to anyone that can offer some advice.

Hi there wsrehab, welcome to GTG forums.

Try checking if there are any loose cables you may have bumped out of place. Eg. IDE cables, or power to HD. Make sure CD roms are securly in and that graphics card is in correctly, make sure to check all the stuff. Let us know. Goodluck :tazz:
