Question about Intel DG965RY Motherboard

1 Answer

DG965RY board can not reboot with 'restart' button on windows Xp

I have recently added two 512 MB DDR2 RAM (533MHz) in DIMM slot A channel 1 and DIMM slot B channel 0 while one 512MB DDR2 RAM (533MHz) is already installed in DIMM Slot A channel 0. The problem is whenever the OS reboots after installing patches, new softwares or manually restarted, it can not reboot. The CPU fan runs at topmost speed making lots of wheezing noise and there is no display on the monitor. I have to power off the CPU and then start once again as in cold boot. I have checked all the RAMs by running the system with only one RAM module and the system works fine but with all the three RAM working together there is a problem. Please help me find the solution to this problem. Thank you in advance.

    Thank you "The only-sol" for going through my problem.
    Well, my Mobo is Intel DG965RY which has 4 DIMM slots, two of which are Slot A and other two are slot B. So my mobo does support more than 3 DDR2. Intel recommends to fill up both channels (0 and 1) of Slot A first and then go for slot B. I have 3 nos. of 512MB DDR2. So I fill up both channels of Slot A and then installed one 512MB DDR2 in Slot B channel 0. All DDR2 RAM are of same spec. However, during cold boot, if I press the start button immediately after POST procedure, there is beep sounds indicating some kind of error and there is no display. However if I allow some 10 seconds after POST, then the computer boots.
    The other problem is I can not restart my computer. It simply whizzes and buzzes with CPU fan running at top speed but it simply does not reboot even though there seem to be lots of processing going on.
    Really strange problem. Maybe designer of this Mobo can throw some light on it. Thanks in advance.

Run with only two RAMS each in one of the DIMM slots. Three RAMS may not work unless supported by mobo or being exactly identical in their specs..

Slot 1 has 512 MB, slot 2 has 512 MB . Are there more RAM slots or is this Max. capacity


Laptops usually contain two dimm slots. Depending on the operating system whether it's windows xp usually will support 2 1gb ram modules. Vista and windows 7 can usually support 4GB or more ram but more then 3GB is only useful if you are running Visat 64 or Windows 7 64.

Hi,

Start off by putting the first memory module in DIMM slot 0 this is the slot nearest the processor. DIMM slot 1 is the slost after DIMM 0.

I am using this ASUS (asus M2N-MX nvidia mcp61p chipset


According to the manufacturer's web-site:

http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=0pKBwEIE8tqMT4j7


this motherboard has 4 x DIMM sockets,
supporting a maximum of 4 GB
of DDR2 800/667/533/ Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory

and supports Dual Channel memory architecture.

So, add one 512MB DDR2 533 Mhz RAM into one of the slots,
being sure to leave *ONE* *EMPTY* slot between the two sticks,
in order to enable the high-performance "dual-channel" option.

Try your computer -- it should feel faster.

If you still think that need more RAM, buy two 512MB (or two 1024MB) DDR2 533 Mhz RAM, putting the 2 sticks into the two empty slots.

2G Memory Upgrade


I had similar problem with CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory

If this is your RAM:
Corsair 1024MB Value Select PC2-4200 (533MHz) DDR2 RAM, 128Mx64non-ECC, 240-pin DIMM, Unbuffered, CL4, Lifetime warranty (VS1GB533D2) Then it is high density. You need low density to work, look for one ending with an 8, not 64.

DG965RY boot problem


Hi niraj73
1. Remove the 1 Ram module from Slot B Channel 0.
2. See if problem is still there.
3. If not get another Ram module of same spec to fill up all 4 channels.
4 If error still there swap the removed Ram module with one of the Ram modules still installed. One of them might be faulty.

RAM NOT DETECTING


I had the same issue on this board where it came with a Samsung 512 MB 533 MHz PC2-4200 DDR2 DIMM. I put in a 1 GB Kingston with the same specs (533 MHz PC2-4200 DDR2) and it would not recongize the Samsung anymore with the system reading as 1 GB of RAM instead of 1.5 GB. Tried every configuration and would only see the Kingston. It would only see the Samsung if I pulled out the Kingston regarless of the slots I use. So, I just bought the exact same make/model of Kingston and it recognized that fine and the system now has 2 GB of memory (max this board allows). And, I had already installed the latest BIOS for this board from Intel before doing all this so wasn't an old BIOS. I'm figuring the board didn't like something about the Samsung memory (speed, module configuration, etc.) that made it not play nice with the Kingston. If interested I bought the DM8400A/1G Kingston modules. And, this board appears not to support dual channel memory. Only has channel A, slots 0 and 1, and I read need two channels to support dual channel (seems obvious). Boards that supports dual channel memory normally have 4 memory slots, two for channel A and two for channel B, then put in matching modules in slot 0 for channel A and B and have dual channel memory access. And if want more ram, then matching modules in slot 1 for channel A and B.

When i add a memory in damaged DIMM slot showing black screen?


Try moving the working DIMM to other slots, it should work in any slot, if it does, the other ram u have is incompatible or bad

Install a matched pair of DIMMs (equal in speed: DDR266, DDR333, or
DDR400; density: 64 MB, 128 MB, 256 MB, 512 MB, or 1 GB; and
technology: 128 Mb, 256 Mb, or 512 Mb) in DIMM 0 in both Channels A and
B. If additional memory is to be used, install another matched pair of DIMMs
in DIMM 1 in both Channels A and B.

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.
