hi everyone
this is sort of a dumb question, but i think the answer should be pretty easy...

if i boot a motherboard without any ram installed, should i get a ram error beep code or nothing at all?

(i'm booting a mobo wiht no ram in it and i'm getting only fans... no vid signal, no hdd activity [besides initial powering on]... i'm not sure if hte mobo is dead or it's because there's no ram in it... )

thanks!

thanks for the quick reply!

so just to clarify:

i will only get a beep code from the mobo if there IS ram installed but it is faulty/not connected properly/whatever

thanks!
