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.

This is your board by the numbers you supplied:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131199
You have Via P4M900 and VT8237 chipsets and Realtek ALC662(sound)
This is Asus's link for your board:
http://www.asus.com/Motherboards/Intel_Socket_775/P5VD2VM_SE/#download
It's supported to Windows Vista so, it may or may not work with Windows 7.
You can try your sound here, if necessary:

and, this is Via's link:

It appears your board has the support for Windows 7, if that is what you are running so these should be all you need. Let me know if I can help you further.

Want to add ddr3 memory to my p5qc board


Hello
The motherboard supports DDR3 1333/1066/800 MHz or DDR2 memory 1066/800/667 MHz to meet the higher bandwidth requirements of the latest operation system, 3D graphics, multimedia, and Internet applications. The dual-channel DDR3/DDR2 architecture doubles the bandwidth of your system memory to boost system performance, eliminating bottlenecks with peak bandwidths of up to 19.2 GB/s.
DDR2 1066MHz DIMMs work only on the black slots for one DIMM per channel
2 x DIMM, Max. 8 GB, DDR3 1333/1066/800 Non-ECC,Un-buffered Memory 4 x DIMM, max. 16GB, DDR2 1066 / 800 / 667 MHz, Non-ECC, Un-buffered memory Dual channel memory architecture When installing total memory of 4GB capacity or more, Windows® 32-bit operation system may only recognize less than 3GB. Hence, a total installed memory of less than 3GB is recommended DDR2 1066MHz DIMMs work only on the black slots for one DIMM per channel. Ensure to install the DDR2 1066MHz DIMMs ONLY on the BLACK slots! Refer to www.asus.com or this user manual for the Memory QVL(Qualified Vendors Lists). When installing total memory of 4GB capacity or more, Windows® 32-bit operation system may only recognize less than 3GB. Hence, a total installed memory of less than 3GB is recommended.

My asus m3n78-em motherboard does not boots with 6 gb ddr2(3 chips of 2 gb) ram it works properly with 4 gb ram(2 chips of 2 gb) i dont know what to do it used to work properly before but its not working...


This board has a dual channel memory. To function correctly both channels must be identical otherwise , as you can witness, it chokes. To put it simply you must put either 2 identical sticks of memory or 4 - it can't run on 3.

Powering up


You need to remove the cap from 8-pin EATX12V connector and connect 8-pin EPC +12V power plug from your P/S, otherwise it will not work. Your power supply should support 8-pin EATX12V. If you P/S comes with 4-pin connector only you just use your 4-pin open spot and leave the cap on.

Wont post with 1333 fsb


This board wont take a 1333 cpu. The fastest it will run is 1066

This motherboard supports the latest Intel® Pentium / Celeron CPU in LGA775 package with 1066/ 800/ 533MHz FSB, Hyper-Threading Technology and core-speeds up to 3.8GHz and beyond.
Make sure your RAM is DDR2 800mhz
The Pentium D830 runs at 800fsb which is in line with the board capabilities.
