    thanks for the super quick reply, i did try to push in hard still no luck.

    it is a memory prob try a new strip

    Are you sure you haven't knocked an IDE or SATA connector while trying to insert RAM?
    Worth a look. Otherwise google your BIOS beep error code to see what the beep means >]EXAMPLES

    This is probably it. Test it out by removing one of the strips (the PC will still run), to figure out which one is faulty.

    If this is not the problem, then it looks like you have dislodged something inside the PC. Make sure all the connectors, boards and sockets are in place.

    BTW. You did use an antistatic strap while doing the upgrade I hope!

    its beep 3 times

    Your computer has memory problems. First check video. If video is … Your computer has memory problems. First check video. If video is working, you'll see an error message. If not, you have a parity error in your memory. First check your memory. Reseat them and reboot. If this doesn't do it, the memory chips may be bad. You can try switching the first and second banks memory chips. First banks are the memory banks that your CPU finds its first memory in.

    i have the old working strip,is fine before i up grade and now after putting the old working strip are giving same beep sound.

    and i never use an antistatic strap while doing the upgrade.

    Unfortunately this might be were the problem lies. You have probably destroyed the memory (both old and new) by handling it without an antistantic strap. The static charge in your body can do this unless you discharge the static.

    Static Electricity and ComputersWhenever the casing of a computer is … Static Electricity and ComputersWhenever the casing of a computer is opened and its internal workings are exposed (to change a hard drive or add memory chips, for example), there is a danger of damaging the computer with the buildup of static electricity that is held by the human body. The internal workings of a computer, and especially the hard drive, are extremely susceptible to static electricity, which can cause considerable damage to the hard drive if it is zapped with even a small amount. Microchip damage can occur if it is exposed to static electricity as low as 10 volts, and humans are not able to perceive static electricity until it has reached about 1,500 volts. (Walking across a rug can produce a static electricity voltage of up to 12,000 volts, but static voltage is not life threatening.) So it is possible to damage a hard drive with static electricity that is not even felt by the person because it is at such a low voltage. Also, computers become increasingly susceptible to static electricity damage as more and more circuitry is built into them. Static electricity is caused by a process called triboelectrification. Everything around us, and including us, is made of atoms, and every atom has in its center (nucleus) positively charged protons and neutrons, which have no electrical charge. Surrounding the atom are negatively charged electrons. The protons and neutrons in an atom do not change, but the electrons can move from one atom to another. When two objects touch, they exchange electrons, which causes one object to become electrically positive and the other to become electrically negative. When an object touches another object with either an opposite or neutral charge, electrons flow. Static electricity is created when electrons move back and forth between atoms. To avoid zapping your components with static electricity, take precautions to ground the static electricity before touching any of the internal components of the computer. Wearing an ESD wrist strap or working on an anti-static mat will prevent any static electricity from damaging your computer. Another way to ground the static electricity is to touch the internal metal frame of the computer's case while the computer is plugged into an electrical socket. The static electricity will be discharged and grounded as the electrical circuit is grounded via the AC outlet. And to be on the safe side, always handle the electronic circuitry on the motherboard, video card, modem, sound card, hard drive and other internal components by any insulated, non-circuitry areas if they have them to insure that you do not send a bolt of static electricity coursing through it.

    If it's beeping, it means that the CPU is fine and that the motherboard is mostly fine, but you've knocked something out of place, or upset it somehow. Beep codes vary by manufacturer, so it'd help if you said what model PC you had (and, better still, what motherboard it uses), but then, the advice for fixing is pretty much the same anyway.

    What to do is:

    1) Remove your RAM, unplug your harddrives, CD drives, expansion cards, power connections, everything. I want to see a motherboard with a CPU installed in it, nothing more. Take the little coin battery out of it, too. Now, unplug the system, and wait two minutes.

    2) Plug it back into the wall, but leave the power switched off. Reinstert the power connections to the motherboard. Make sure they're installed down properly. If you need to install a graphics card, do so. Next, reinsert the memory. Make sure it's installed fully. Try booting up.

    3) If it boots at this point, and it should, try with the other DIMM. From there, rebuild the PC to how it was before, and all should be good. If it still gives you the three beeps, tell us what kind of PC or motherboard you've got, and we'll work from there.

    computerhope.com/bee…htm might help you diagnose, however the advice given already is accurate

    After doing loads of PC repairs i've found that there's some motherboards that require the BIOS to be reset when messing around with the memory modules.

    If it were me i'd put the old (suspected working) memory stick back into the PC on it's own.

    Then reset the BIOS.

    This is done easily by disconnecting the power lead to the PC then moving a Jumper on the motherboard to Pins 1 & 2. WAIT for 30 secs then move it back again to pins 2 & 3.

    The jumper will usually be next to the button cell battery on the motherboard.

    Now reconnnect power lead and try and power on again ! :thumbsup:

    have done all the step as mention still no luck same 3 beep,bought new 512gb ram and tested still same beeping.
    i dont know what made type is motherboard all i know is pentium 4 with built in graphic card, packard bell. hope this will solve the problem thanks

    As I said early, you have killed the memory because you did not use an antistatic strap. There is no way back except for buying new memory.

    Did you try my suggestion on post #13 ?

    this is why n00bs shouldnt upgrade.... sorry but its true.... you should of just paid pC world £15 to fit it properly for you or give it to an expert (part of my trade ;-) )

    but as said you proberly have blown ram at worst the mobo if you had allot of static.... your motherboard no will be written on it normally right in the middle or down the bottem google the beep messages
