Problem with motherboard and memory module.


Hello, Could you please help me with this problem ?

I have got this motherboard - Intel Corporation, D915GUX (product), aac63985-401 (version), EV91510a.86a.0482 (bios version).

And I have got problem with this memory modules KVR400D2S4R3/2G. When I put in this module I receive 3x beeps and I am done. I also tried all positions on motherboard without changes. I also looked if this module is compatible with motherboard and it should be.

Could you please tell me where can be problem ? Thank you very much.

Hello Sedlis, first of all, I would need to let you know that this motherboard has been out of support since December 2008.

However, since the motherboard is running the latest BIOS available for it, my recommendations for this kind of memory problem are the following:

  • Test the system out of the chassis, minimal configuration please. (Motherboard, processor, power supply and video card) No memory.
  • Remove the CMOS battery and leave the system without it for about an hour. Then put it back on and restart the system. datetime datetime

  • - Include 1 memory stick on DIMM # 1 and restart the system.

When did this behavior started? Any recent change you made on the system?

You are using server RAMs that are ECC registered & your MB isn't compatible with such RAMs. Hence, the 3 beeps "i.e. memory error".

So as Sylvia said:
