PC will not boot after attempted RAM upgrade
Attempted to upgrade RAM on a custom built PC, but new RAM would not allow PC to boot. Now I returned all the old RAM back as it was before, and I’m still getting 3 beeps and will not boot. It worked fine before I attempted RAM upgrade, I tried reseating all RAM and PCI cards. Please help!
I’d have to actually check the make of the motherboard, I’m not sure it was a custom built unit that I bought. Yes I had everything unplugged before inserting the RAM.
I have 4 memory sticks filling all 4 slots, equaling 8gb. I tried to upgrade it to 12gb by replaced two of the 2gb with a couple of 4gb sticks. But since they didn’t seem to be recognized, I just replaced the old RAM back in, but now I can’t get it to start back up with the old RAM.
Ist dies eine gute Frage?
What is the make and model number of the motherboard?
Did you disconnect the power from the PSU before removing/inserting any ram modules?
I agree with Jayeff, the make and model of the motherboard is important. Those three beeps you heard may have been an error code from the motherboard that can give us a clue about what is wrong.

Just an FYI... 3 Beeps has been an indication of memory related issues for many years which is why I answered the way I did. It is not unusual for someone to "restore" the original configuration slightly differently.
@dancomptia The motherboard is an Intel DP35DP
