Dell 3100 mother board question

How can I tell if the board supports single or dual channel ram. I have two slots and a matched set of chips but the bios settings will not allow me to change to dual from single channel? If i knew what board it is I can stop wasting time and move on to a new unit. thx.

Nforce4-a939 board ,my system shows single channel 64 bit but on perchasing it was dual channel 128 bit how can i fix it......


The 128-bit mode is achieved by putting _matching_ sticks of RAM in the RAM-slots. Non-matching RAM will run as "single-channel" (64-bit) mode.

Matching RAM must have the _same_ amount of RAM per stick,
and the same internal "timing" parameters (look closely at the RAM for strings like 3-2-2 or 2-2-2-2).

If you have exactly 2 RAM slots on the motherboard, matching RAM will always run in "dual" mode.

If you have matching RAM, and you have 4 RAM slots, put one stick of RAM in slot #1, and one in slot #2, and leave #3 and #4 empty. Start it up, to see if it is using "dual" mode.

If not, shutdown, power-off, and move the RAM from slot #2 to #3, and start it again. This time, it will run in "dual" mode.

Hi I have a mother board EP-4T2A3 and it supports


Hi,

This EP-4T2A3 is unique, that the can only utilize the slightly more expensive RDRAM memory modules. Furthermore, because of the dual memory controllers in the i850 chip-set, all motherboards based off of this chip-set must also have its RDRAM installed in pairs. You can purchase RAMBUS chips of PC600 to PC800 memory modules. You have 4 RIMM slots, and they must be installed in pairs, or you will get speeds of only a single module. The unfortunate part is that the RDRAM modules are a little more pricey. You can find some samples of these HERE.

Good Luck

Memory channel mode


Hi shinde32, you should know that dual channel memory should be bought as a pair. Your board has two DIMM slots as you mentioned. The board can handle up to 2GB max memory, as you have mentioned. What you do not seem to know is it is required to use the same amount of memory is each slot. See the bottom of page 55 in your manual. (Do you need the manual)? Download at this link;
http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d102ggc2/sb/d4798502_en.pdf
There is not a bios setting where you can enable or disable memory channels. The bios configures the memory automatically. Intel has a list of memory tested & passed for the D102GGC2 Mb. You can see that list at this next link.
http://www.intel.com/technology/memory/ddr/valid/DDR2_sodimm_results.htm
Bottom line, both DIMM slots should have two 512MB DIMMS or two 1GB DIMM's. (Like this memory);
http://www.bzboyz.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProdID=18112

https://www.thefind.com/computers/info-spd-dual-channel-kit-memory
This is what your search would look like,
"1GB x 2 DDR2 dual channel 533MHz SPD memory".
The Certified "SPD" is important for Intel MB's.

Good luck shinde32!

Installing Memory


put the new ram in slots 2 and 4.

Slots 1 & 2 are channel 1 slots 3 & 4 are channel 2, you need matching sets in each channel to run dual channel mode.

Asus K8N-dl - second processor present but not running...


Hi, Mistyman here. All Asus mother boards that have dual channel RAM slot must have equal ram in each slot. In most cases the paired slots are matched by color for easy ID, some are identified by a printed ID on the mother board. With your board you will have to have run all of your RAM for the one CPU. If you have only one stick this must be in slot one. If you are using two sticks then utilise the dual chanel system that ASUS have and use A1 & A3. To activate the second CPU you will need to install matching sticks of RAM in the B slots. both cpu's will need to have the value of RAM to work together properly. CPU one = slot A for RAM CPU two = Slot B for RAM. Goodluck, the ASUS boards are a value product.
