Lostman, I'm using a 512mb of DDR Ram from Kingston on this board & no I didn't try it on another board I'm running out of hardware. I took it to a mom & pop PC store to let them mess with it, They got a ton of parts to play with.


Dethangel, my new Asus board will support DDR400 can't wait to buy some Ram for it. I was thinking also of the CMOS clear but like I told Lostman I ran out of parts & patience & took it in. thank ya both for your time & input. I'll let ya both know the outcome.

When my SOYO motherboard died ( corrupted bios is what SOYO figures it was as someone flashed it) it just did the beep- pause thing add-naseaum. I also had a critical hd failure at the same time. My brother brought over a spare comp and we tested everything before building the comp I'm using now. If you know the name of your MB go to the manufacturer's site and look up the beep meanings and troubleshooting tips there first. Good luck...
