    I have the same trouble with GF8200A BS, (4x1 OCZ PC6400 platinum r 2.0) i thinked it was OS fault, and so installed a Vista 64 (SP1) OS, and never worked fine (except when 1 or 2GB RAM was used).
    I tried with Ubuntu 8.04 (64-bit) and the failure persisted.
    Tried with ganged and unganed modes but nothing.
    Tried updtaing BIOS but just keep pissed off....
    The solution? Use only 2 GB or throw away the card =P

    I am having similar problems.

    Vista 64 SP 1, Blue Screen with 2 x 2gb DDR2 6400 corsair.

    After reading this, I tried:
    Ubuntu 8.04 64 bit, no problems with 4gb of mem.
    Vista 64 SP 1, 2gb no problems

    Seems like maybe Vista problem for me. Installing all the latest updates and will try 4 gb again. Will post results.

Hello Jobedy

Everything I found pointed to this board being installed in a Packard Bell computer. One listing indicated the board supported up to 2GB of RAM. So, apparently, 4GB won't run on this system.

Your RAM DIMMs are fine. They're reading 1GB ea when inserted because that is the maximum supported per DIMM slot.

So, in the end, the issue is the limitation w/ your motherboard.

When you're trying to find info or support on parts installed in an OEM computer (like a Packard Bell), you'll usually have much better luck searching or requesting support using the computer model no. in addition to the (for example) motherboard model no.

The reason is, (w/ respect to motherboards), most are special made by the original manufactuer for the computer manufacturer. They aren't usually going to be "off-the-shelf" motherboards for which documentation and support will be made readily available to the public.

Having the model no. of both the major assembly (computer) **and** the subassembly (motherboard) is the best combination to strike. :)

SOURCE: ECS PT800CE-A 3.4 P4 HT CPU and DDR400 (PC3200) problems

I seem to be unable to find any information about what an ERAND error even is. No one is really identifying it on the net. One thing you may try though is to find out if the bios settings are maybe causing this. Is the system overclocked at all? Are the voltages correct? Maybe try resetting Bios to default settings and trying again.

The specs for the RAM on this motherboard are:
DDR400/333/266 SD RAM with ECC. Maximum you can use is 4Gb in total (so 1Gb stick in each slot would be fine - just make sure you match them in pairs).
Maximum of 4GMaximum of 4GB of DDR400/333/266 SDRAM with ECCB of DDR400/333/266 SDRAM with ECC

Test the Ram dimms, one at a time. It sounds like you may have a bad module. Carefully reseat each one. And ground yourself to avoid static electricity.

I am using Intel D865GBF board having Dual Channel DDR400/333/255 SDRAM memory support. It is of 3GHZ, 256 MB RAM. The other day I bought 1GB RAM of Transcend and tried fitting the same. But the PC never...

Yes it can support 1GB ram. Max capacity up to 4GB of ram, meaning 1GB each on each slot. Make sure that the memory that you will be installing are either DDR400, DDR333 or DDR266. It could be the RAM is faulty if the one you bought is the DDR's that I mentioned

Hey, I have an ECS GF8200a with ddr2 1066mhz 2gx2 ram from team Xtreem. Ram will only run at 800mhz, ? everything seems up to date like drivers etc.

The speed of system RAM is dependent upon the RAM itself for the most part. Check the label on the RAM sticks as this will indicate the speed of the sticks. Also, the system will only ever run system RAM at the speed of the slowest stick. So if you have two sticks, one rated at 800Mhz and one at 666Mhz, then the system RAM speed will be at the lower 666Mhz speed for both sticks. I would guess that the sticks you have installed will not run at the highest bus speed of 1066Mhz. The RAM controller may also be detecting that running the RAM at the higher speed may or will cause system instability and is reducing the speed to maintain a stable system.

4 Gigs or Ram?

Have you taken a look at page 2-12 in you're manual? Than re-check pg. 2-11 (Read everything) when setting up the Max memory of 4GB.

is this your motherboard?

if so, it is ok for you to upgrade your memory up to 2gb. btw, just be sure to properly install the rams to the slots.

since youve purchased 2 x 1Gb ddr400 , put on color blue slots.

hope this helps
