Help me out... I'm working on a friend's computer. I was in the process of installing more ram, 128k pc100, and upon installation, the computer will no longer boot up, will only give me a very anoying continuous beep. I'm not sure what type of bios it is. I'm going to attempt reseting the bios by removing the battery. If there are other solutions, please enlighten me. I'm at a lose and need guidance....thank you very much....:confused:

Welcome to TSG! Continuous beeps usually mean bad ram. Will the machine boot if you remove the upgrade and put in just the old ram?

Let us know

It could also just not be seated in the slot properly. Pop it out and back in again and make sure it really clicks into place. You are sure the MB will support the type of ram you are trying to install, I hope!!
