Hi zouganeli,

You can install one, two or three modules. Each memory module can hold a maximum capacity of 128 MB of standard SDRAM chips, or 256 MB of registered SDRAM chips so maximum memory capacity is 384 MB of standard SDRAM memory or 768 MB registered SDRAM memory.

Hope that helps

Take care,

Michael

What's your problem?bit ix38 quad gt motherboard with 2 gig of ddr2 ram i want to add a 1 gig stick of more ram that ive bought how do i do this? thanks windows seven


Top view of motherboard, scroll down. (Thought you might also like to read the reviews, and Comments)

Motherboard User Manual,

http://www.theraptorpit.com/forum/index.php?/forum/124-abit-motherboard-tech-support-unofficial/

1) On the motherboard the Blue ram memory slot that is closest to the copper heatsink, is ram memory Slot 1.
Also known as DIMM 1.

Ram memory ALWAYS has to be in this ram memory slot.
The Processor reads ram memory Slot 1 first.

2) The Blue ram memory slots are Slot 1 (DIMM 1), and Slot 3.
(DIMM 3)
The Black ram memory slots are Slot 2 (DIMM 2), and Slot 4.
(DIMM 4)

To run Dual Channel ram memory, means there are two LIKE ram memory modules ('Stick'), and they are installed in the SAME channel.

This would mean to alike ram memory modules, in both Blue ram memory slots, or both Black ram memory slots.

Since the ram memory modules need to be alike, they are generally purchased from the same manufacturer, and are the same kind.

Running ram memory in a dual channel configuration, is supposed to increase ram memory 'speed', up to 30 percent.

This is Baloney!
May look good on paper, but in actual use in the field it's cr@p.
Actual performance increase is more like 1 to 2 percent.
This has been proven by Tom's Hardware, and many, many motherboards, ram memory, Processors, etc.

So you have 2GB of DDR2 Sdram, huh?
Is it just one 'stick' of ram memory, or are you referring to two 1GB sticks?

If the above holds true install them in Slot 1 and Slot 3.

If not, and it is a 2GB stick of ram memory, be sure it is installed in Slot 1 (DIMM 1)
Install the 1GB stick in Slot 2.

It isn't the same as the 2GB stick.
It is 1GB.
Does NOT go in a dual channel configuration.

(Catching all this? There is NO dual channel ram memory!

It is ram memory that is -> ALIKE, and used in a -> dual channel configuration.
Used in two separate ram memory slots, that support the dual channel configuration.

Sold with the advertising scheme of 'Dual Channel', but really just means the two ram memory modules, (Or four), are -> alike.

1) Same Voltage used
2) Same Ram Timings
3) Same Chip Configuration
4) Same size in amount
5) Same frequency rate ('Speed')

With ram memory in a dual channel configuration, the ram memory modules team up on the task.)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

What kind of memory can I use in my 6282-75u


IBM 300GL 6282-75u

IBM = Manufacturer

PC300 = Series

PC300 GL = Subseries

6282 = Machine Type

75u = Model

Intel Pentium processor or Intel Pentium with MMX technology, and max frequency rate ('Speed') is 200Megahertz. (200MHz)
Woo-hoo!

Two ram memory slots.
EACH slot can hold a maximum amount of ram memory -> 64MB

TOTAL ram memory amount for motherboard is 128MB (Woo-hoo!)

Ram memory is SDR Sdram. Commonly, but mistakenly, just referred to as Sdram.

Has 168 gold plated contact pins. 84 on each side.
Two Locating Notches on the bottom of the ram memory module.
(Two Side Notches. One on each side)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:SDR_SDRAM-1.jpg

Non-ECC and 100MHz as shown above. (PC100) [ DIMM ]

I don't know if you can just use a 128MB ram memory module ('Stick'), in ram memory Slot 1, or not.
Me?
I would try it. May have to reboot up to 4 times for BIOS to recognize the ram memory. May NOT have to.

Under the bold white heading in the black bar -> Technical manual

It is a PDF file, and the HMM for the IBM 300GL-6282-75u Desktop PC.

Cheap buy on PC100 - 128MB - ram memory modules,

(PS.
You have a D.I.P. switch on the motherboard. SW1
Has 4 dip switches, numbered 1 through 4.
The positioning, (ON or OFF), determines the 'speed' support for the Processor.

your motherboard is not compatible with more than 128MB of RAM pre slot so max u can place 384mb of ram if u place more than that your motherboard will not recognise of it wont start

A7s333 motherboard with 3 dimm ram slots 2 x 1GB pc2700


That board type does not show on the ASUS web site. I think that your problem may be incompatibility of the RAM with the board specs. Placing faster RAM on the board will not make it go faster.

Asus P3B-F Motherboard


Download a manual from the ASUSTEK website, I have read many forums related to issue's with ram and from what I have learned with the ASUS boards is that dependind on the bios and the model, each slot, for some unknown reason can only recoqnize a maximum of 128MB per DIMM slot? My board has 4. For example, no matter what I install for Ram the motherboard will only read 512, some of the forums on ASUSTEK reccomend reflashing the bios with an updated one, but now, with the age of these computers i find it difficult to find a Bios upgrade. It is ridiculas, the Bios should come from the manufacturer ready to handle the maximum Ram of 1GB, which is my case with the ASUS P3B-F Pentium 3 with a 850MHZ processor.?????????
