Hi have an older comp which I removed the memory out of then put back in. Afterwards, the comp won't start up. It will make a long beep then two short subsequent beeps but nothing will appear on the screen. I'm sure the memory is put in correctly (tried over 20 times). I've also checked for any short curcuited but found none.
I remember that I put one memory in one slot while leaving the other slots empty allows the comp to start up properly. Then I tried the other slots and finally trying the slot that worked again. Unfortunately it failed the second time.
Well, Im guessing your computer is using SDRAM, since you said it was old.
One thing about SDRAM is that even tho it looks good and compatible on paper, does not mean it will work. SDRAM is very picky.
