Upgrading ram in an acer aspire sa80

I have tried to upgrade the ram in my desktop. I've brought 2x 1gb DDR400 PC3200 kingston ram and placed them in. It boots into windows proper but when I double click an application it crashes to a blue window. The motherboard in it is a 661gx-m7. Can you please help me. Thanks

I've read up on the 661GX-M7 by looking at the manual at http://eudownload.ecs.com.tw/dlfileecs/manual/mb/eng/p4/661GX-M7.pdf all it does is agree with what you've done. It should be able to handle 2GB of DDR400 without a Bios update and Kingston's definitely one of the best to go with. All I can think is that it's not the RAM. If you're alright inside a PC case try breaking it down to a bear minimum, so just graphics card, memory and processor and see if it acts ok like that. If it's not then one of those things is setting it off and you might have a dodgy stick or you might have handled the memory too much. If it's ok, then plug one thing in at a time and retry until you find the culprit.

The blue screen means theres a hardware of software failure, try to solve this by checking the ram, take just 1 out and reboot, if it does the same thing take the other out and put the 1 back you took out first, reboot to see what happends
hope this helps and inform us of your progress

Try re-installing the two new sticks two or three times. Sometimes there is a little build up of oxides on the contacts on the motherboard and keeps the bios from properly recognizing them.

Does D915GLVG support DDR2 ram


Hello, I am the technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Anish Nitin.

Unfortunately your Intel D915GLVG only supports DDR memory up to a maximum frequency of 400MHz. It also supports 333MHz frequency as well.

Therefore the maximum/fastest is DDR400 also called PC3200. In those days when the memory was manufactured they made 1GB modules.
If you would like to upgrade this computer install 2X DDR400/PC3200 1GB memory modules.

Take care!

Just installed 2 2GB cards (Corsair VS2GB800D2) to replace the 1 1GB card in my emachines EL1200 series. Computer will not boot. replaced the old card and it booted right up.


Will it boot with only ONE of the 2GB memory-sticks installed?
Will it boot with ONE of the 2GB memory-sticks AND one of the 1GB memory-sticks?

Look closely at the 1GB memory-sticks.
Does the label show 'DDR266' or 'DDR333' or 'DDR400' or 'PC2100' or 'PC2700' or 'PC3200' ?
Do the 2GB memory-sticks have _identical_ information?
It's definitely _not_ acceptable to have "slower" RAM (smaller numbers) in the new RAM,
but it _might_ be acceptable to have "faster" RAM (larger numbers).

Is their a special make of memory card, ie: ddr


According to: http://www.shopping.com/xPF-VIA-MB-FOXCONN-VIA-KM400A-400M01-G-6L-R

this motherboard has 2 slots for DDR (184pin) RAM,
and supports a maximum of 1GB of RAM per slot.

Note that DDR RAM comes in 3 speeds: DDR266 (slowest), DDR333, and DDR400 (fastest).

Buy the fastest RAM -- if the motherboard cannot run the RAM at "full" speed, the RAM will automatically slow itself down to a speed that the motherboard will support.

Most ram has to go in pairs. Buy another stick of the 1GB, and it will run fine.

Was your 1gb stick DDR PC2700? Most likely that is why. Although the pin set are both 184 pin, you will be downgraded to the lowest speed available, meaning PC3200 (DDR400) will downgrade to PC2700 (because PC2700 can't be upgraded to PC3200).
