Having problems with your HP Compaq Presario 6370US PC Desktop ?

1 Long Beep accompanied by Monitor not Turning on...

\015 I recently bought two new sticks of 512 MB RAM to replace the old two sticks of 256 MB's. Both sets of RAM were the same type... PC 2100 DDR. When I finished up replacing the RAM, I went to turn on my computer, but the monitor would not turn on. After a few tries of taking the new RAM out and putting it back in I went to install the old 256 MB's of RAM. But this time I heard a long beep coming from my Computer (about 5-7 seconds estimated.) I checked online and found out that it had something to do with my RAM or my Video Card. But to me that does not make any sense, because I put the old ram back into the computer, and the same result occurred. Is there something wrong with my Motherboard? Or some other problem that I do not know about? Any assistance is greatly appreciated.\015

Good Day ! I exactly know why can not work your aging memory since meet often with such situation in my operation. Do Not worry this easy solved problem. You must to clean from dust ALL contacts on motherboard and memory modules, use pressured air, ore vacuum cleanser, be carefull.
After that you must to clean yelloy "pins" ("contacts" ) on the both sides of the each modules. Use for it fabrics ed by alcohol. then contacts will shine, put it back to you mother board. I recommend also remove and install 5-6 times in slot for better results. Same procedure you can do with video card, it be very useful.75851e2.jpg
Hi there
\015\012what you can do is to power down the computer and remove the power supply cord and open the case, now find the power supply cord that goes to the motherbord and unplug it now press the computers on button and also a reset if you have it. than plug in the cord back into the mother board and doublecheck that your memory modules are inserted all of the way i would try only 1 at a time and see if the the computer will now boot if so than try to add the second one and see what happnes you should get a memory change message ok. please try this and let me know how this goes for you , there is more that can be done but this is the easiest thing first
\015\012best regards mike
