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?

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

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
