Hi, I have a machine at work which beeps 12 times (3 times, 3 times, 3 times, 3 times) then shuts down. When I checked inside there was no RAM it was discusssed that another technician had changed the RAM and I installed a new DDR 3 (1 Gig RAM module).

I now don't think it's the RAM but what else could it be I'm trying to find a good site for trying to identify the beep code, could it be the motherboard or CMOS?

Can you get the original RAM back and does it then work.

Double check the speed setting of the new RAM and once installed go into BIOS Setup and check the settings for the RAM - Do not rely on Auto to sort it out, Save and exit.
