today suddenly my pc freezes (the temp was normal, 43°C) and when i presses the reset button the motherboard was beeping with a "C1" error. The manual says it's related to memory...strange, its the second memory i've apparently lost!

i haven't tested other memories yet cuz i don't have em here...but is there any chance the problem is something else?

oh and the computer doesn't even show the bios screen, the monitor never lights up...

help me please!!!!!!
Hi Brunobm
try resetting your CMOS. If the machine boots up, set your Ram timings to fairly slow. Make sure everything is stable in Windows, then speed up the Ram timings until you find where it fails.
You may want to consider boosting the Chipset and Ram voltages in case some component has aged on your motherboard or PSU.
