PC will not boot after attempted RAM upgrade
Attempted to upgrade RAM on a custom built PC, but new RAM would not allow PC to boot. Now I returned all the old RAM back as it was before, and I’m still getting 3 beeps and will not boot. It worked fine before I attempted RAM upgrade, I tried reseating all RAM and PCI cards. Please help!
I’d have to actually check the make of the motherboard, I’m not sure it was a custom built unit that I bought. Yes I had everything unplugged before inserting the RAM.
I have 4 memory sticks filling all 4 slots, equaling 8gb. I tried to upgrade it to 12gb by replaced two of the 2gb with a couple of 4gb sticks. But since they didn’t seem to be recognized, I just replaced the old RAM back in, but now I can’t get it to start back up with the old RAM.
What is the make and model number of the motherboard?
Did you disconnect the power from the PSU before removing/inserting any ram modules?

I agree with Jayeff, the make and model of the motherboard is important. Those three beeps you heard may have been an error code from the motherboard that can give us a clue about what is wrong.

Just an FYI... 3 Beeps has been an indication of memory related issues for many years which is why I answered the way I did. It is not unusual for someone to "restore" the original configuration slightly differently.

@dancomptia The motherboard is an Intel DP35DP
