I have a gigabyte 915 motherboard, an intel p4 2.66ghz processor and a ddr1 512mb memory single stick on my system.. the system was working fine until a few days from today... the system does not boot when the memory is inserted in the slot ( I tried both slots that I have on the board) when the memory is removed i get a beep code (long short short).. the cpu fan doesn't power on.. i tried using a different cable for the power supply.. i also tried to disconnect everything and just kept the motherboard/processor power cable connected internally and tried to power on. system just doesn't power on with the memory inside..

is there any way to find out if it is a problem with the memory, motherboard or the power supply???

It sounds like the memory has gone bust! Try a different stick to eliminate the most possible scenario also the obstacle in diagnosis!

Hi and welcome george
i have 2 questions:
1-when all was fine before did you usually hear one beep/no beeps when system was powered on??
2-when powered on with the ram is the computer totally dead no sign of nothing?? (not likely)and without ram you get somethin?
