How can I solve my motherboard problem?


The system is having a problem in accessing the system memory to refresh it.


  • Remove all optional devices from the motherboard, including expansion cards, external peripherals, etc. and see if the problem can be resolved.
  • Double-check all the motherboard jumper settings, carefully. Make sure they are all correct. In particular, check the processor type, bus speed, clock multiplier and voltage jumpers. Also make sure the CMOS clear and flash BIOS jumpers are in their normal, default operating positions.
  • Double-check all connections to the motherboard.
  • Check the inside of the case to see if any components seem to be overheating.
