If you are referring to the ASROCK mobo then it will work on the high density although not as good as with the low density but it will nontheless work.

Hi guys, i have installed 2 sdrams pc-133 512mb,together 1gb, but yhe bios and the system shows me only the half memory,whyyyyyyyy


Are you sure that both sticks of RAM are properly "seated"?

How much memory is found when only one stick is used?
How much memory is found when only the other stick is used?

Which motherboard? Some very-old motherboards only support a maximum of 256MB per slot.

How many memory-chips are on each stick of RAM?
If you have purchased "high-density" memory (small number of memory-chips),
and your motherboard only supports "low-density" memory, then only 1/2 or 1/4 of the actual RAM will be used.

Hi, I don't know if I should get single or double sided ram for this mother board, and is low density ram ok? Thanks, Wayne


This mainboard uses DDR400 memory


A High Density module is by far much slower than Low Density module at the same speed rating say PC3200/DDR400. High density modules are FAR CHEAPER, less than half the price when compare with low density modules and hence high density modules will NOT work on 90% of today's PC chipsets. LOW DENSITY modules have 100% compatibility with ALL systems and ALL chipsets. HIGH DENSITY modules only have 10% compatibility and are VERY SLOW.


So AVOID those 'High-Density - 128Mx4 config 1GB modules which is usually UNBRANDED and is NO NAME!


With this in mind it is far better to use low density Ram. Most RAM cards today are double sided, it all depends on the capacity of the RAM card.


Please rate this solloution as it it much appreciated.

Thanks.

When starting up stops in middle of setup screen or bios


Do you hear a posting beep??? if so and you have a video card, remove reseat it and retry, also do same with ram.

How can i know if a ram suits my Legend QDI


you got to options

1. following the indications of your motherboard documentation (recommended/best), if you need to find out details about your motherboard you can possibly download and use one of this tools to get info about your motherboard and possibly find the manual online in the manufacturer's website

2. the following page will check your system to find out what memory you have and what you need and up to how much you can go http://www.crucial.com/promo/index.aspx?prog=uslp_intel_fbdimm

3. checking on ebay: in the following links indicates that it should be low density:
Module Size: 512MB
PC133 SDRAM
UNBUFFERED
Non-Ecc
168 pins
3.3 Volt
Structure: 64Mx64=512M
Low Density: 2 Banks of 32Mx8
SPEED: 133MHz
CAS Latency: CL3

hope this helps

Planning to upgrade my RAM(motherboard K7SOM + V7.5C). Ram have high & low density. What is the difference? Which suit my motherboard? Thanks.


Look at the sticks of RAM -- "high" density means fewer chips on each side of the stick, i.e., newer technology and production methods have packed more bits into each chip, while "low" density usually means 8 chips/side, using older RAM chips.

Older motherboards do not expect to find "high" density RAM, and typically will only detect 1/4 or 1/2 of the RAM on the stick.

If you buy a new motherboard, it will support BOTH densities.

K7VM3


Hi,

An ASRock K7VM3.motherboard is a socket A (462) board specifically for the AMD processors. To my experience, these boards (due to age and period of usage) are prone to:
  • bulging/leaky capacitors of the high current regulators near the CPU;
  • the heatsink tends to be dislodged/misaligned causing overheated processor;
  • loose memory slots causing defective memories.
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
