Having problems with your E-Machines eMachines Desktop PC ?

I added memory to my desktop, hooked it back up and it goes beep, beep, beep. The memory is seated correctly, there are no lose wires, etc.I've read that some motherboards aren't wired to accept more memory and I should call it a day.I'm going to try to take out 1gb and see what it does. If it "beeps", I'll take out the other 1gb I added and pray it'll be returned to it's sorry original state.


Answers :

Depending on your unit and OS, xp will register 2 gigs and vista will register 4 gigs. also, make sure the mem you are installing is compatible to *********** board as well.
You probably need to update your bios first before it will take the memory.
