SOURCE: IBM T30 RAM memory module only 1/2 working?

The problem is the mother board. One of the memory slots has gone bad. This is common with T30s.

You have 2 sticks of RAM correct? One that came with the system and one that you bought. You also have to slots but it appears one may not be working, however, nothing is impossible but that is very rare it is normally the RAM itself and not the slot. Take both pieces out, put the new ram in the first slot and boot up. If the system will not boot up then it is the RAM because you already know that that slot is good. However, you cannot do the same thing with the second slot, because your motherboard looks for RAM in the first slot and if there is none then it stops boot. Conclusion: Put new RAM in first, slot if it works then second slot is bad, if it does not work, then RAM is bad...

Hope this helps. Please vote accordingly and if you have any more questions I will be glad to research and answer them for you...FixYa

Beep code 3-4-3-1


Maximum memory is 2GB for the motherboard.

There are 2 ram memory slots. EACH has a maximum amount of 1GB.

DDR Sdram at 400MegaHertz; which is PC3200.

Needs to operate at 2.5 Volts. That is the JEDEC standard for DDR Sdram.
THAT, is what the factory has set voltage at in BIOS Setup.

I just saw a DDR Sdram ram memory example, that was NOT high-performance ram memory; and uses voltage of 2.6 Volts.

If the motherboard has SPD, and the ram memory also; it shouldn't be a problem.
However it may be,

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

Needs to be Unbuffered, and Non-ECC.
I have seen examples on a certain large online auction house, that were ECC.
This is because these particular examples were for a SERVER computer.
Seller was pushing them off, as being able to work for any computer.
Ignorance, or greed; I can't say.

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

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Error_detection_and_correction#Error-correcting_code

A server computer may look at information 2, or 3 times; before stating it's true, and working with it.
Has to be correct info.

Memory disappear BIOS report error on memory bank


Check that the ram sticks are properly seated and locked in place. If they are and the problem still occurs you will need to replace the failed stick.

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.

How do I install an additional RAM card


The IBM NetVista A22p has 3 memory expansion slots. A memory bank is a group of memory expansion sockets, a bank must be completely filled with memory modules of the same size and type in order for the system to recognize and address the memory. i.e. :

*2 sockets (2 banks of 1) This indicates that there are 2 memory slots. These are divided into 2 banks, and each bank consists of one memory slot. So you can add memory one piece at a time for the system to use.

*3 sockets (3 banks of 1) This indicates that there are 3 memory slots. These are divided into 3 banks, and each bank consists of one memory slot. So you can add memory one piece at a time for the system to use.

*4 sockets (2 banks of 2) This indicates that there are 4 memory slots. These are divided into 2 banks, and each bank consists of two memory slots. So you must add memory two pieces at a time (they must be the same size and type of memory) in order for the system to benefit from the upgrade.

*8 sockets (4 banks of 2) This indicates that there are 8 memory slots. These are divided into 4 banks, and each bank consists of two memory slots. So you must add memory two pieces at a time (they must be the same size and type of memory) in order for the system to benefit from the upgrade.

*12 sockets (3 banks of 4) This indicates that there are 12 memory slots. These are divided into 3 banks, and each bank consists of four memory slots. So you must add memory four pieces at a time (and they must be the same size and type of memory) in order for the system to benefit from the upgrade.

I have a vgn-b3vp (pcg-5b1m) sony laptop, can i upgrade the memory if it has 512 of none-removable memory and only 1 bank.


Yes, you can use the 1 bank and get higher graded memory, another 512 in the 1 bank would make 1gig, you can probable get as much as 2 gig in the bank to make a total of 2.5 gigs by buying a 2 gig memory stick.

I have a question on how to add RAM to an Intel D850MV.


According to specs your board can max out at 2GB. So you could fill all slots with 512 Gb sticks, 1GB total in each bank. You should always match RAM in pairs. You should be able to add just 1 stick in second bank as long as the first 2 banks are filled.

Cannot boot the system.


When you put the RAM back into the computer did you return them to their original bank? Dual Channel DDR RAM is particular about being in shared bank with the other RAM module; that's why the color code the RAM Sockets in some motherboard designs so you don't them mixed up. Moreover, is the CPU fan spinning for the short time it is powered up?

Memory upgrade


Your computer has memory problems. First check video. If video is working, you'll see an error message. If not, you have a parity error in your first 64K of memory. First check your ram's. Reseat them and reboot. If this doesn't do it, the memory chips may be bad. You can try switching the first and second banks memory chips. First banks are the memory banks that your CPU finds its first 64K of base memory in. You'll need to consult your manual to see which bank is first. If all your memory tests good, you probably need to buy another motherboard.

Or you have bought wrong type of memory for your motherboard.

Asus M2N-MX Motherboard 4gb Ram wont work


I had the same problem and ASUS tech support was of no help. I did however find the culpret in the BIOS setup. Go to Advanced, Chipset, NorthBridge Chipset, and Memory Configuration. Set the Bank Interleaving to Disabled and save the settings. Check these settings also while you are there:
Channel Interleaving = Auto
Enable clock to all DIMMS = Disabled
Memory Tristate = Disabled
Memory Hole = Enabled
Unganged Mode = Enabled
Power Down Enable = Enabled
Power Down Mode = Channel
