Help with k450e motherboard beep error codes

2016-11-07, 18:24 PM

I just upgraded my k450e computer with a new power supply (600 watts), and a new stick of RAM. Upon booting it up, I get 3 short beeps and 1 long beep, and nothing on my screen (as in, my monitor just shows a blank, black screen).

 

I've tried switching out my RAM, by moving it to different slots, and putting my old RAM back in by itself, but no luck. Does anybody know what the error beep codes mean?

3 shorts, 1 long beep. The memory module was not seated properly.  RESEAT your old memory back into the EXACT memory slot(s) you took it out of. Also go back to your old power supply for now.
