I recommend returning it and getting the manufacturer recommended ram... you may have all sorts of issues if you use the wrong memory... such as pc constantantly restarting .. or not starting at all.... or just crashing regularly.

Just bought the acer g5900.Memory DDR3 what i want to know is whats the MHZ 1066 or more.


MHZ is the speed of the RAM, this is very important to know because all RAM in a computer MUST be the same speed. In example that a 800 MHZ RAM cannot work together with a 1066 MHZ RAM, otherwise the computer will not boot.

Your MB is AM3 with 128MB DDR3-1333 built-in, four 1.8 Volt DDR2-1200+ depending on cpu. Have you enabled cpu 64 bit extensions? Tried slowing down your memory bus?
My ASUS use dual channel for dual core cpu. I have 2 yellow and 2 black dimm sockets. Both dimms in yellow is single channel, one in yellow and one in black is dual channel. Might try 2,1,2,1 rather than 2,2,1,1 order. If only your 2 1GB dimms are seen then why do you get 4 GB from 1GB+1GB? Sounds like sockets 1,2 are giving you 4GB and 3,4 don't work? Are the 1GB+1GB in 3,4 visible if the dimms in 1,2 are removed? Per Gigabyte page your AMD Phenom II 920 is AM2+ : "Note: Due to AMD AM2+ CPU limitation, memory module DDR2 1066 or above speed is only supported by 1 dimm per channel." Per AMD (which does not show your cpu, AM3 cpu fit AM3 or AM2+ socket and support ddr2 and ddr3, AM2+ cpu only work in AM2+ socket and support ddr2 only.

I have a problem, I've bought a P5Q-E Asus motherboard, and I've bought a 1066 Ddr2 ram, P5Q-e Supports ddr2 1200, and I'm scared what if 1066 won't work on this motherboard? Or will it, please help me...


It will most likely work, but it will make your computer run slower because the RAM you are inserting is slower then the one that is already installed.
