Question about Gigabyte Motherboards

1 Answer

PC2100 RAM I have been given some 512MB RAM to upgrade my PC. The labels indicate that it is DDR 184 pin PC2100 512 MB. Installing in my Gigabyte GA-7DXR+ board, it fits OK but does not work. The PC beeps and will not boot up. As far as I can tell it is the same as what is already in there. Any ideas please ?

Sounds like the ram is corrupt.
If you were properly grounded installing it you should be able to claim warranty. Otherwise it was your fault.

RAM Slot does not recognize more than 512MB ( 184 )


Consider updating your motherboard bios.

http://www.asrock.com/mb/download.asp?Model=K7VT2&o=BIOS

Also make sure that your memory is correct for this system:


- Max. capacity of system memory: 2GB DDR or 2GB SDRAM
- DDR x 2, DDR266/200 non-ECC, un-buffered memory
- SDRAM x 2, PC133/100 non-ECC, un-buffered memory

Not recognizing memory.


The Asus P4S800-X MB can use Dual channel DDR memory and single channel memory. The dual channel memory which comes in matching packs. (Normally 2 DIMMS per pack) is the faster memory.
In other words if you are installing, 4- 512MB DIMMS of PC3200 all memory should be matched,
or you're MB may not see all connected DIMM'S.

See page vii in you're manual. If you're running windows XP, Home or Pro edition the bios will show up to 4GB of memory installed but windows XP 32bit will only show 3GB of memory. As mentioned above all 4 of you're 512MB of memory should be dual channel and run at the same speed. You can run both single channel and dual channel but you must follow Table 1 in you're manual. (1-9).
Example; PC3200 400MHz.
Or 4-512MB PC2700 333MHz. See page 1-9 for memory configurations and the QVL list supported.
Check out Asus FAQ's; http://support.asus.com/faq/faq.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P4S800D-X&product=6&os=17

This should help you configure the memory.
Good luck!

Need to install PC2100 DDR 1GB ram upgrade


Hi,

The PC2100 DDR should be fine on that board. Each slot (which there are 3) will hold 1 gb of ram each. So finding 1GB PC2100 isn't the easiest, you can find 512mb, and put 1 512 in slot 1 and 1 in slot 2, There you'll have your 1GB.

Good Luck,

Don't forget to leave a rating.

Thanks

Memory confusion different readings


It sounds like something isnt working right, what operating system are you using, Vista? I would take out the original 512 and see what it says after, often ram isnt compatible if it is too different in size and speeds. Also, if your motherboard supports dual channel ram and you have the extra 512 chip it wont run in dual channel mode, you would run better with just the 2 chips then the added 512 chip.

Critical after DDR333 upgrade


cadyshack,
I got your latest version (8.1) motherboard on my screen & ECS shows your board does not support PC2700, only PC2100.
Downloaded your manual to verify this.
Notice you started having problems after upgrading RAM.
Link to your manual:
http://www.ecsusa.com/ECSWebSite/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?detailid=436&DetailName=Manual&MenuID=7&LanID=9

This motherboard accommodates two 184-pin DDR DIMM
sockets for up to 1GB memory. Supports PC2100/PC1600
unbuffered non-ECC DDR DIMMs.

Upgrade from 512MB to 1GB


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?

Upgrade of ram


Your board Support 168-pin SDRAM DIMM and 184-pin DDR DIMM (Can't Use DIMM & DDR SDRAM memory Together).
I would run the 184-pin DDR. Supports PC1600/PC2100 DDR DRAM up to 2BG Max. Since you have four memory slots 2x512mb of DDR PC2100 = 1GB would be plenty. You will notice programs load faster & games run smoother. Personally, 2Gb. may help but you will not see the difference. To see a difference it is not all about memory. Mb bus speed, CPU, chipset & speed of video memory all play a part with regards to Pc overall speed.

You can download the specs of your board here.:

Can't Install RAM in DDR2 and DDR3 DIMM slots


You cannot use DDR and DDR2 ram at the same time, because its always been like that (ie, no SD and DDR, or SD and RIMM)

What you should do is switch to all DDR2 sticks.

P4vmm2 motherboard


you can add up to 2 gb RAM using either 2 x 184 Pin DIMMs or 2 x 168 Pin SDRAM DIMMs. However that MB does support pc400. The supported RAM speeds are 100, 133, 200, and 266 MHz

You can buy a pair of Kingston 256 MB DDR SDRAM PC2100 (266 MHz) from the kingston website for under $50
part no: KVR266X64C25/256

Kingston is a well known and respected manufacturer of memory.
