well...RAM is a type of memory. I knew what you meant.
Saintnick, another thing would be to check and make sure you have everything connected properly. When I first got the parts to build my new computer, I thought I hooked everything up fine. When I turned on the computer, I was getting a beep like something was wrong with the video card. The only help I could get was the card company telling me it is a faulty motherboard slot, and the motherboard company telling me it was a faulty graphics card. Anyway, to make the story short, it ended up being a mistake in the connections. I guess I plugged the front side USB port into the wrong spot and that screwed everything up. Just check and make sure you have things connected properly, and if you aren't sure, don't connect something like the front side USB until you get everything else working right.
