Thread: Epox 8k5a2+ and RAM

    hey i have an epox 8k5a2+ for months now with 256 mb of ddr memory (Corsair CM64SD256-2700CX2H 256MB DDR333 PC2700 Memory w/Heat Spreader) but just the other day i decided to get some more memory so i ordered the (Corsair CMX256A-2700C2 256MB DDR333 PC2700 XMS Memory w/Heat Spreader Retail) which was much cheaper than the first one.

    anyway, when it came and i put it in and powered up the computer i get a long consistent beep, so i quickly turned it off.

    i tried various stuff like taking out the old ram stick that i had, and using the new one only, and the same thing happened. and when i put in back in the old RAM it worked back. so i am wondering if the RAM the i bought is messed up or incompatible with my system. i even reseted the bios to its default setting and then try it but still no luck.
    i got them from googlegear, and i paid $101 for the first one which works (Corsair CM64SD256-2700CX2H 256MB DDR333 PC2700 )
    and $48 for the second one that is giving me trouble (Corsair CMX256A-2700C2 256MB DDR333 PC2700 )
    check out this one and tell me if it should be able to work with my motherboard.

    are you sure that you had the RAM properly seated? most BIOS will give a long beep at boot if it doesn't think the RAM is in place

    try it again, but this time make sure the RAM is corredtly seated
    I've gone too far and need to move on!
