Hello, I recently bought new components for my pc and this isn't my first time building a pc, i know some stuff about PCs and when a PC beeps three times it would mean that there is a problem with the ram I put it in multiple slots and still no display with 3 beeps.
So I decided to go to my friend and take both of my rams and try it on his motherboard, we removed his ram and put 2 of my mine.
Everything worked, so I jus want to confirm that the problem here comes from the motherboard?

Thank you
Hi

I confirm that the problem comes from the motherboard if you have the proper ram sticks in such DDR 2 or DDR3.
The motherboard supports DDR4, so I use DDR4

So there, it's not your ram.
The motherboard right?

My last suggestion to you is to Google the bios beep codes for your mummy board model, you should get a list of possible issues according to the number of beeps and pauses and lenght if any.

In other words search "(Motherboard model) bios beep codes"

Good luck
