    I've acquired an Optiplex GN+ 200Mz barebones machine, socket 7, 2 DIMM slots, copyright 1997 on motherboard. I'll set it up as usual with (tried all types of memory) pc66, 100, 133, hard drive, CD ROM. Everything else is on board. It immediately gives me a beep code, 1-3-1-1, nothing more. The monitor screen remains dark, but I can hear the hard drive spinning up. Bios research says that this beep code indicates the memory needs to be reseated. I've tried every combination of memory I have: 32M of PC66, 64M of PC100, 128M of PC133, and 256M of PC133. Does anyone have any suggestions how I might get past these beep codes.

    Welcome to TSG

    it's possibly the wrong type of memory

    looks like it takes EDO

    unless you've got some laying around or can buy it used, memory costs more than the box is worth

    Okay, sounds like the right direction. Thanks for the advise. I'll give it a try.
