I was just wondering if it was possible to boot into your BIOS without and ram installed.
I've tried it just for the sake of knowing, all you will get is beeps relating to no memory installed...I didn't even get an error screen...blank screen and beeping till I removed power from the board (power switch on case or on PSU).
Well what if my memory was not being detected. Would my motherboard beep?
yes itd beep at you cos there no mem, look in your motherboard manual for the code to the beeps
It is my memory. Keep getting beeps and no display, thought it was my mobo or my gpu but here it turns out to be bad memory. I guess.....
Try one stick of memory and see if that helps...sometimes on newer mb's it helps to initially boot with only one stick of memory to get to BIOS and set memory voltages and timings so that you can boot without issue with more than one stick.
cant be done. it'll give you a beep code for no memory
In most cases it is indeed the memory, however it could also be the motherboard that is defective.
