Have asus p4s8x mob,when adding 3rd stick of memory (1gb) total of 3gb.computer hangs on startup 1long 3 short beeps. if i remove one old stick and leave new with old (2gigs total)it works fine,also works...


The Asus Asus Motherboards P4S8X-MX uses PC-3200 type memory and usually ships from Asus with 0MB of RAM. The Asus Motherboards P4S8X-MX supports up to 2GB of RAM. Maximizing your system memory will allow your Asus Motherboards to operate as fast as possible and offer the most productive environment.
RAM modules must be installed in special locations on the motherboard called Sockets. These memory sockets are what hold the RAM module in place and can range from 1 to 16 or more. Banks consist of a group of 1 or more sockets. A system can have 1 or more of these banks of sockets. If a system has more than 1 socket in a bank, a Kit must be purchased for that bank. A kit is simply more than one, usually 2 or 4, like RAM modules. All sockets in a bank must be filled, and for such systems we sell memory in a kit. Typically you will see 2x512MB or 2x256MB signifying you are purchasing 2 units of 512MB RAM modules or 2 units of 256MB RAM modules, respectively.
The Asus Asus Motherboards P4S8X-MX has 1 bank(s) which have 2 socket(s) in each bank for a total of 2 memory socket(s). This means the Asus Motherboards P4S8X-MX can support up to 2 individual RAM modules.
We recommend you purchase the largest capacity RAM module each time you purchase memory. The reason for this is if you decide to upgrade again later and all your memory sockets are filled, you will not need to discard the already installed lower capacity memory.
Below is a visual representation of the memory bank(s) and socket(s) configuration for the Asus Asus Motherboards P4S8X-MX.

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.

Cpu speed for ddr 400 ram


cpu speed has nothing to do with ram. they are completely independant. ram speed is important to the FSB (front serial bus) this is the speed at which your motherboard communicates with the devives attached to it. cpu speed refers to how fast a cpu can process info. or how fast it "thinks". most motherboards have the capability of upgrading cpu's. your mobo (motherboard will support the following cpu's:
any pentium 4 up to 3.0 ghz
it supports the following ram
ddr (nott ddr 2 or 3) up to 2 gigs (1 gig each slot) of 533mhz speed (or less)
it also supports up to 2 gigs of sdram either pc133 or pc100
you are using 400 speed ram as you stated i would upgrade to a 533 speed ram as it will be faster, but this is not necessary. as for the cpu just get any P4 (pentium 4) that is 3.0 ghz or less and it will work.

I have an asus p48vx-x motherboard


you may check
1) your Intel pentium 4 3.2 GHZ cpu socket 478 processor #sl7nb what's FSB?( see on the chip surface, if 533 FSB can use but 800FSB could not match your motherboard if which is not support 800 FSB. that's why no display.
2) check RAM stick speed, try to increase a level, for example 266 to 333.
is this helpful please feedback thanks

CPu fan turns for 1 second and then stops.


If all was working fine before, then, you have either not connected the cpu power cable, as is sometimes required other than being powered by the processor socket, or your power supply unit is not pentium 4 compatable and is unable to power the processor.
