    Hi there

    I've got one old PC (Motherboard Name-Asus K8V-MX) hxxpsupport.asus.com/Download.aspx?SLanguage=en&m=K8V-MX
    It's working ok, and it has DDR 400 type RAM 1.5 GB. (Memory Speed-PC3200 (Actual speed -200 MHz)),everything looks good when my PC is on but if i shut down my PC it never turns on but later i found out it's due to memory clock speed problem, so I've changed my memory clock speed in the BIOS section as per the data received from AIDA 64 , now it's booting fine but still not perfect i still need to press on the restart and shutdown button even to see the BIOS post message and something on the screen. :confused: Otherwise all computer fans are running and lights are on but no display. Is it possible to fix via a BIOS memory clock manipulation method, i 've tested my RAM in some other intel based machines but it works perfect. I'm waiting for some help from a good BIOS modder

    A BIOS modification will not fix your issue and I doubt that any memory speed modification will fix it either (unless you deviated from default in an attempt to overclock). The first thing you want to do is set your BIOS back to defaults. Once done, identify your specific issue and include your system specs and what OS you are trying to run on that old rig. However, since your mobo is not supported beyond Win 2003, I can almost see the handwriting on the wall. By chance, did this problem just surface after you tried to upgrade your OS? If not, were there any other hardware or software modifications made right before your issue started? In summary, the more information you provide up-front, the better chance you'll have of getting the assistance you need.

    It's not a problem with my graphics card i guess, it might be related to memory clock settings , i would like to have best memory clock settings for my mobo .If anyone have this board please help :smile3: or a BIOS mod might work . I'm using latest BIOS (2005 one) and default setting does not work that's why i changed the memory clock speed and it's giving me little hope now.

    If default settings do not work then something else is wrong; period! You will not get the assistance you need unless you provide all additional details (as previously requested).

    Here is little more information regarding my old system

    hxxp//pastebin.com/LGP6dGPj

    I was using one old 1GB DDR memory stick but unfortunately it's damaged and not working anymore but that time system was running fine that's why i think its related to memory problem, so i bought new memory sticks (same frequency ) but it doesn't work effectively. So i changed the clock memory clock settings now its booting fine but not always. What i really need now is best memory clock settings for my system or a memory BIOS mod which will load these memory clock settings i posted above instead of default .So that in case of any BIOS failure or reset in the future the system will still load best settings from the BIOS . :fishing1:

    Now were getting somewhere! The memory you purchased is most likely incompatible with your motherboard. What are the specs of your old memory and what are the specs of your new memory? here are your mobo requirements:

    I don't have old memory configuration anymore i'm using compatible same frequency memory now but some settings do not support or not effectively compatible with CPU or mobo chipset. I'm not a techie so i don't have more information regarding what may be causing the problem :wacko:

    As I suspected, there is much more to this story than you have explained. Good luck with your issue and I hope someone else can help you.

    Thank you :hug2: and i'm also waiting for a good BIOS modder :bye2: I wonder is it possible to make some changes in the BIOS ROM file using AMIBCP will it's gonna work?

    Update: Finally i edited BIOS settings by using AMIBCP and made many favorable settings as my default BIOS, now it's booting .Now i'm only lookig for some best memory settings for my MOBO
