M537 Motherboard problem (beeps)

M537 Motherboard problem (beeps)

M537 Motherboard problem (beeps)

Dear all,
I am having a problem with my motherboard which is giving short beeps and not starting. I have done some research on the internet and found that the motherboard is called M537. I even got the manual, which did not include a troubleshooter. (It is an old computer I am trying to upgrade)
A few days ago, I have inserted new RAMS in it, not knowing that I should not put DIMs with SIMs together and I have also inserted DRAM in the place of SIMs without changing the jumper. (I did not have the motherboard's manual before). Would this be the cause of this behaviour? What can I do to fix the problem now.
My motherboard is a PC Chips M537(VXPro and Houston Tek chips are installed in the motherboard).
Please let me know if I could do anything to fix it...
Thank you for your time.

If it is beeping and not booting then it is definatley a RAM issue.

RE: M537 Motherboard problem (beeps)

Very true. Thank you. I have replaced the motherboard with a similar one.

The RAM slots were not working.
