Computer does not boot - Memory Refresh Failure or ???

Discussion in 'Motherboards' started by Francoise Frigola, Aug 22, 2008.

  1. Computer does not boot (HP/Compaq D220 MT/ Windows XP – SP2)
    Disconnected everything except mouse, keyboard, and monitor
    Computer cycles: HP logo, Windows XP logo, shuts down, HP logo, etc.
    AMIBIOS v.1.09, released 11/14/2003
    One beep: AMIBIOS says it is a Memory Refresh Failure
    Motherboard: 335186-001
    - Purchased a new RAM module from Crucial
    Original was 256 MB, new is 512 MB, BIOS recognizes either and
    both
    - Cannot boot from diskette
    - Tested with two different sets of keyboard/mouse/monitor
    - I have reset the BIOS
    - RTC is OK
    - BIOS Utility does not offer any diagnostic
    - I have cleaned up the memory slots with air and a brush

    How can I further diagnose the problem?
    Suggestions welcome...

    THANKS!

    you just don't have a floppy on that PC?

    PS: I even made a new Bootup diskette in case the one I had was not
    good.
