a few weeks ago I had a problem with the memory in my Dad's computer requiring me to get new memory sticks. When I turned the computer on this morning, I received the same error beeps as a few weeks ago.
Does anyone know of existing problems with the Pavilion 7935 motherboard, that causes it to burn out the memory, or anything that may help?

Thats a simple 200mhz ddr bus pc100 sdram system, correct?

Unless something is flakey it should not burn out ram, although if your psu is putting out too much voltage on the 3.3v line it can cause that problem if the board lacks onboard regulation.

The ram should still be under warranty and be replaceable. You might have gotten bit by some bad ram OR your motherboard might be failing.

Try reinserting the ram and see if it magically works, I have one board that gives memory beeps every time it is moved and if I reinstall the ram it magically works again until the next move.

The only other possibility which probably doesn't even apply is if your SDRAM has a voltage jumper (this old slot a athlon sitting by me does as it supports EDO) and it is for whatever reason set to something other than 3.3v. There should be a jumper labled 3.3v/5v if this is the case.

Good Luck

Thnx Rmay, I think your right about the type of memory, but since my Dad decided to get a new computer, the HP will become spare parts (never have enuff IMO). I did look to see if there were any jumpers by the mem slots, but there weren't, oh well.
I hope he kept the receipt from the RAM, tho

Thanx again for your help
