Yeah you should upgrade. Windows xp 32bit only support up to 3gb memory. You should upgrade to 64bit.
And your specs? Yeah it can run 64 bit operating systems or if you like, use Windows Vista x86 or x64 with Service Pack 1.

Specs say the Lenovo G560 067999U has max memory of 8gb. ordered 2x4gb for the total 8 upgrade and it won't take the 8. it will see 6gb not 8. did anyone else come up with this issue?


Hi, i have same notebook but not the same problem.
Maybe your graphic card taking some of memory or they make mistake in the PC shop.
Download CPU-Z utility http://www.cpuid.com/softwares/cpu-z.html (download is on the right side)
Run it and go on Memory tab where you see your total RAM memory then you can go to SPD tab and see what memory exactly is installed in every slot.
Hope it will help you :)

I have purchased an ASUS ASUS P5K SE Motherboard. I want to run a MDT RAM at 667 Mhz DDR2, is it possible as it says nothing in the asus website The ASUS P5K SE Motherboard Qualified Vendors List (QVL)...


"The Asus P5K SE Motherboard Qualified Vendors List (QVL) says that it only runs ram at 1066MHz and MDT is not on the list"

Really? I beg to differ.

The motherboard manual states,
" The chipset officially supports the memory frequency up to DDR2 800MHz. Tuned by the Asus Super Memspeed Technology, this motherboard natively supports up to DDR2 1066MHz."

1) Notice the 'Up To'.
Supports UP TO 800MHz, and with the SMT it supports UP TO 1066MegaHertz.

It will support DDR2 at 667MHz, 800MHz, and 1066MHz (With SMT)

The QVL doesn't encompass all ram memory that is available out there.

The Ram Memory used has to be;
A) Unbuffered
B) DRAM chips used cannot be any larger than 64MB

[DRAM chip.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Generic_DDR_Memory_%28Xytram%29.jpg

The Black rectangular chips, shown on the module of DDR Sdram example above, are DRAM chips.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DRAM

C) Should follow the JEDEC standard for DDR2 Sdram.
For one, it should follow the JEDEC standard for DDR2 voltage.

1.8 Volts.

Some high performance ram is set to use a slightly higher voltage. The Asus motherboard is set to use DDR2 at 1.8 Volts by default. (Factory settings=Default)

The MDT DDR2 at 667MHz is not high performance ram memory. It will be set to use 1.8 Volts.

Up to the Left side of the page is the heading - Download, in white.
Under it is the - Input Model to Search, box.

Put your mouse cursor in the box, leave it there.
Left-click once.
Type - P5K SE

Go to the Select Category box below it, and left-click on the down arrow, on the right side of the box.

In the drop down list click on - Manual
Now click on - Search info, below it.

Left-click on the blue P5K SE to the left.

Choose the Operating System. Left-click on the down arrow on the right side of the box. I chose Windows XP in the drop down list..
It doesn't matter.

Left-click on Search below.

Now scroll the next page down to Version E3202
Left-click on Global (DLM)
In the security box that pops up, make sure you use capital letters for the letters shown.

Left-click on Submit.

It's a PDF file download. Make take up to 30 seconds before you see the first page. May also take time to fully download. Advise letting it download before looking through it.

I posted the link so that if you have a motherboard manual, and it does not have the information this one has, then you now have the official Asus version.

Ram Memory information starts on Page 37.
Page 40 shows the QVL for DDR2 at 800MHz.
Page 41 shows the QVL for DDR2 at 667MHz.

This QVL does not list MDT either.
It's okay, it will work. The MDT ram memory has SPD support.

[Serial Presense Detect

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_presence_detect

Maximum Total Amount of ram memory is 8GB. You better have an O/S that will recognize 8GB, however, to realize this.

Has to be a 64bit O/S. (Operating System)
Windows XP Home, and Pro that are 32bit versions, will only recognize 3.2 to 3.5GB of ram memory.

Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot is 2GB.

If you only install one ram memory module, make sure it is in Slot 1. (DIMM A1 on that motherboard. The ram memory slot that is closest to the Processor)

350 Watt PSU? Not planning on gaming I see.

Depends on what PSU you have (Power Supply Unit), but it could be old enough to be just putting out 70 percent, of the maximum rated wattage.

245 Watts.

Can you mix 1gb and 2gb dimms in the same machine (for a total of 6gb)? I added two 2gb 1066 DDR2 dimms (''OCZ'') to a PC that already had two 1066 DDR2 1gb dimms (''Kingston''). I moved the 1gb dimms to...


Your MB is AM3 with 128MB DDR3-1333 built-in, four 1.8 Volt DDR2-1200+ depending on cpu. Have you enabled cpu 64 bit extensions? Tried slowing down your memory bus?
My ASUS use dual channel for dual core cpu. I have 2 yellow and 2 black dimm sockets. Both dimms in yellow is single channel, one in yellow and one in black is dual channel. Might try 2,1,2,1 rather than 2,2,1,1 order. If only your 2 1GB dimms are seen then why do you get 4 GB from 1GB+1GB? Sounds like sockets 1,2 are giving you 4GB and 3,4 don't work? Are the 1GB+1GB in 3,4 visible if the dimms in 1,2 are removed? Per Gigabyte page your AMD Phenom II 920 is AM2+ : "Note: Due to AMD AM2+ CPU limitation, memory module DDR2 1066 or above speed is only supported by 1 dimm per channel." Per AMD (which does not show your cpu, AM3 cpu fit AM3 or AM2+ socket and support ddr2 and ddr3, AM2+ cpu only work in AM2+ socket and support ddr2 only.

Memory +cpu upgrade


No to the cpu you selected. Board would not support that cpu. The RAM you selected would probably work but for how long I couldn't say. With prices pretty low right now it would probably be better to purchase a new motherboard, cpu, & RAM. Hope this helps.
