Yesterday i swapped in my friends RAM wich is faster (but only 512mb :shock: ) and did a bit of overclocking ect, all worked fine. But when i switch back to my RAM the pc wont boot, i get a long beep every 3 secs or so. the system looks like it will boot for maybe a few secs, because all the lights come on, all the fans turn, and the little LED on the mobo goes through the boot numbers. then it get stuck on 0.4.

its a abit AV8 3rd eye by the way..... and im running 1gb of pc4000 ram

please help!

What BIOS is it ?

If its AWARD BIOS then it means your RAM isn't seated properly.

Found you a decent link that explains what all the beeps etc mean for each BIOS.

Hope that helps you.

Good Luck, make sure you re-apply thermal compound on the heatsink when you put it on again.
