    I got the same problem.
    I bough two differene 2Gb RAMS, and 2.5 Gb seen.
    I think it's motherboard problem.
    I tried to use 64bit Linux to see if recognies what the bios don't, ant PAE extensions too. No luck.

    I thing We'll have to wait for an ASUS BIO Fix or th change motherboard.

It is my understanding that Vista 32 will not read 4 gig of ram, Only 3. Aslo if you have 3 gig installed it will not read 3 g. the Bios automatically subtracts the video ram, and any other ram installed. So if you are using 256 m of video ram, you will only get 2.7 gig showing.

Same here, 2 times 2 gig, only 2.25 detected. Weird stuff I gonna find out why! to be continued

Posted on Sep 17, 2008

I did. both slots are working. Works fine with 3 gig but when I go 2 and 2 it only give me 2.25 gigs:(

Switch sticks around in various combinations (2 gig in slot one, 1 gig in slot two, switch, try other stick, etc) and see if it is the memory or the motherboard.

What's your problem?bit ix38 quad gt motherboard with 2 gig of ddr2 ram i want to add a 1 gig stick of more ram that ive bought how do i do this? thanks windows seven


Top view of motherboard, scroll down. (Thought you might also like to read the reviews, and Comments)

http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/motherboards/2007/12/06/abit_ix38_quadgt/2

Motherboard User Manual,

http://www.theraptorpit.com/forum/index.php?/forum/124-abit-motherboard-tech-support-unofficial/

1) On the motherboard the Blue ram memory slot that is closest to the copper heatsink, is ram memory Slot 1.
Also known as DIMM 1.

Ram memory ALWAYS has to be in this ram memory slot.
The Processor reads ram memory Slot 1 first.

2) The Blue ram memory slots are Slot 1 (DIMM 1), and Slot 3.
(DIMM 3)
The Black ram memory slots are Slot 2 (DIMM 2), and Slot 4.
(DIMM 4)

To run Dual Channel ram memory, means there are two LIKE ram memory modules ('Stick'), and they are installed in the SAME channel.

This would mean to alike ram memory modules, in both Blue ram memory slots, or both Black ram memory slots.

Since the ram memory modules need to be alike, they are generally purchased from the same manufacturer, and are the same kind.

Running ram memory in a dual channel configuration, is supposed to increase ram memory 'speed', up to 30 percent.

This is Baloney!
May look good on paper, but in actual use in the field it's cr@p.
Actual performance increase is more like 1 to 2 percent.
This has been proven by Tom's Hardware, and many, many motherboards, ram memory, Processors, etc.

So you have 2GB of DDR2 Sdram, huh?
Is it just one 'stick' of ram memory, or are you referring to two 1GB sticks?

If the above holds true install them in Slot 1 and Slot 3.

If not, and it is a 2GB stick of ram memory, be sure it is installed in Slot 1 (DIMM 1)
Install the 1GB stick in Slot 2.

It isn't the same as the 2GB stick.
It is 1GB.
Does NOT go in a dual channel configuration.

(Catching all this? There is NO dual channel ram memory!

It is ram memory that is -> ALIKE, and used in a -> dual channel configuration.
Used in two separate ram memory slots, that support the dual channel configuration.

Sold with the advertising scheme of 'Dual Channel', but really just means the two ram memory modules, (Or four), are -> alike.

1) Same Voltage used
2) Same Ram Timings
3) Same Chip Configuration
4) Same size in amount
5) Same frequency rate ('Speed')

With ram memory in a dual channel configuration, the ram memory modules team up on the task.)

I had an intel d865 perl motherboard with a 2.8 processor and 4 gigs of ram, computeer ran great for years then one day i shorted the motehrboard and fried it, i ordered a brand new one and installed it...


Hi,

Thanks for asking FixYa for help. My name is Jeff and I will be assisting you today.

If you are using the same motherboard as the first one, what you are experiencing is too weird to worry over. Is it still under warranty? I'd say you have proved that the MB is deffective. Take it back for a refund or exchange.

If you are in need of additional help, please let us know.

Thank you for allowing us to help you today.

I currently Have I Gig of Ram. I am trying to install 2 x 1 Gig of Matched Ram in the Correct slots but the computer will not boot up with 2 sticks of Ram. If I take either one out it boots up fine


What slots you put the RAM into can make a difference - Assuming you have more than 2 slots, try staggering the RAM placement so there's an empty slot between the 2 RAM sticks. You'd have to look up your motherboard model online to see what specific instructions there are.

I dont know wat sort of ram to choose for this board because i am wanting to put in x6 4 gig ram ddr3 memory modules


running triple channel memory with more than 3 DDR3 1600 sticks installed (4-6) cuts the memory speed in half. you have to run with 3 sticks at a time in triple channel mode or you will see a reduction in ram speeds.

OCZ is making some good 4 gig ram sticks. they have a 12 gig triple channel memory kit with 3x4gig sticks. you could get 2 of these kits and have your 6 sticks- 24 gigs total, but your memory frequencies will be lower- your ram access will be slower.

2 gig ram sticks


Not with Windows XP, because more than 3 gigs isn't useful. Many servers come with 8 or more and nearly any computer you configure at the major manufacturer's websites can be bought with 8 or more.

DDR2's only showing half installed RAM


IF THE SYSTEM SAYS YOU HAVE 1GB RAM THAN YOU HAVE 1 GIG OF RAM, EVEN THOU SOMEONE TOLD YOU YOU HAD 2-512MG=1GB.

HERE IS HOW I SEE WHAT YOU ARE SAYING YOU HAVE 2-DDR-2 1 GIG STICKS THAT MEAN IF 1 IS INSTALLED THAN YOU HAVE 1 GB AND IF YOU COULD GET 2 STICKS WORKING TOGETHER THAN YOU WOULD HAVE 2GB RAM.
1 CHIP SET = 1GB RAM
2 CHIP SET = 2GB RAM

YOU MOTHERBOARD MAY NOT ALLOW THAT MUCH RAM, OR WHAT I MEAN THE BIOS MAKE UP THE AMOUNT OF RAM.

TO RULE OUT ANY BAD CHIP SETS OR GOOD RAM OR BAD RAM.

TAKE THE PEACE OF RAM THAT IS WORKING OUT AND REPLACE IT WITH THE OTHER PEACE AND SEE IF IT WILL RUN.
IF IT WORKS THAN LEAVE THAT ONE IN PLACE AND INSTALL THE SECOND PEACE IN THE SECOND SLOT.
IF BOTH CHIP SET ARE GOOD THAN BOTH SHOULD WORK OKAY TOGETHER.
IF THERE IS A PROBLEM, IT MAYBE SOME DUST IN THE MEMORY LOTS
OR THE SLOT MAYBE DAMAGED.
OR
THE CHIP DESIGN LAYOUT MAYBE THE OPPOSITE SIDE, THIS MAY MEANS THE CHIPS MAY FACE EACH OTHER, OR FACE OUTWARD FROM EACH OTHER.

Yes you can use 1 stick of 2 GIG of RAM for this motherboard, because your motherboard supports up to 2 GIG RAM...

Hope that helps..........

2 gig ram stick


Absolutely, 2 Gigs stick of RAM exist. Unfortunately your motherboard's maximum memory supported is 2GB. This site specifies very clearly 1 gig stick max per slot:

2 gigs of ram


Re-check your manual at pg. 1-12. 1.9.1 Memory Configurations.
Since you know one bank of memory works fine in a certain slot. Now try the other in the same slot.
