I have a Motherboard ( GA-G41MT-S2PT ) Specs..... It has 2x 500gb hard drives (seagate) and a 600w xtech power supply. It has a pentium dual core E5700 3.00GHZ 3.00GHZ CPU. It had 2x 1g ram sticks one from samsung and the other from kingston.
I wanted to upgrade the ram so i bought the Corsair vengeance 2x4GB 2133MHZ pro series DDR3 (80€). i have been advised that this would be a good upgrade. I did some researcher on my own and i thought that It wil work because it has the right 1,5v the clockspeed is higher but that should not be a problem ( i have read in many forums That RAM automatically Downclocks to compatible Frequency) and it has the max amount of GB that the Motherboard can hold.
*Shut pc down, I removed the old junk ram card, pressed the power button for 10 sec and placed the new one inside. Did the power on again. Al the fans and hardware came to live but then it started to beep continuously for 6 seconds. Then almost 2 second of nothing and then the beeps came back. I left the room thinking that i broke my pc and if i could send the ram back, after 15 min i came back and it was still beeping. Nothing is showing on the monitor and i cant enter BIOS with the new RAM cards. I cant do anything because nothing is happening*
When i place the old crap card back in, it works again. So i do not think that the motherboard is broken. (i hope not)
does someone know why this is happening? Is there something wrong with the motherboard or did i buy the wrong ram. If its the wrong ram then i could send it back. But i will need to know it fast. (4 days remaining for that)
*I have also looked on another site to see if it really was compatible with the Motherboard and it is: link (Cant post??) its on the pc part picker site.
I did some research and i think that the beeps is the following error: Continuous Beeps – Memory or Video Failure Troubleshoot memory, display adapter, motherboard. Gigabyte manual does not say anything els about beep codes and errors. The manual is a dead end then.
**I tried The program Memtest86 but it does not start with the new RAM cards. It does start with the old one's.
**I found out that the RAM cards do work on my neighbors computer. So they are not broken.
**No, it wont boot when there is only 1 new RAM stick installed. I have tried it in both DIMM slots.
I hope someone can help me with this. I have 2 more days left to do a refund so i am hoping that i would be fixed in two days.
