My name is Belal and I'm having problems with my motherboard playing games because of the RAM slot.First i putted a 512 MB DDR ram to one slot it was working fine then i put another 512 and then the games become stucked or the keyboard and mouse doesn't respond.maybe because of my 350W and 4A power supply or it has something to do with my AGP card.

you have a 512 mb card in the ram slot which gives you an effective ram of around 480 mb
it is random memory and is a storage space which the cpu uses to move data around while it does it's job
if you want to increase the ram then there should be a spare ram card slot next to the one you have so you can install another ram card of exactly the same value to double the ram memory
in some instances ( like game playing ) it can increase the speed of the computer
The Intel D102GGC2 uses a Dual Channel Memory Architecture meaning that both slots need to be running at the same speeds. I would suggest getting another 667 MHz RAM card and installing it along side your current one, just as I reminder this motherboard only supports 2GB RAM Max so don't get one that is above 1GB.
That last RAM probably is good. Many motherboards have problems using many different memory. All of the memory you have should be at least identical to ensure that they work. When RAM run at different speed or require a little more voltage, they will not let your motherboard boot. You can try mixing up the order you put the RAM in. Try putting the last RAM in the first slot by itself, the motherboard should boot. Then try the rest.
Also, whenever you add or change hardwares, you should clear the CMOS/BIOS settings.
If the manual says this motherboard support up to 1 GB RAM, you cannot put 2 GB. You can put 2x 512 GB RAM or 1GB RAM
Also try to upgrade your bios, maybe a better bios version supports more than 1 GB RAM.
Nowadays, motherboards supports only a selected number of RAMs. You have to read the manual and select from the given models.
I am not talking about DDR2 or 667MHz. The manual will state the manufacturer (ex. Kingston) model no (KVR667XXXXXX) etc. Only those stated in the manual will work correctly with your motherboard.
The specs on the memory are correct, so you purchased the correct type of memory for this motherboard. If your getting no video when you power on with the 1gb stick, I would be willing to bet the 1gb stick is bad. Can you return it and try another stick?
