Question about MSI MBOX P4MAM-V (MBOXP4MAMV) Barebone

3 Answers

Memory types My P4Mam MS-6787 M-ATX Mainboard runs ok on one stick of DDR 400 Ram. As soon as I try and plug another 512 stick in the same (DDR 400) it will not boot correcectly and comes up with all sorts of errors. Sometimes it will start Xp ok but bomb's out during an operation.sometime says it needs to do a 'repair' on Xp. The book does say uses DDR 200 and DDR 266 so I suppose I should only use that type??? But why does it go ok on one 512 of DDR 400 ? In either slot too, doesn't matter which. Both sticks I have run ok on their own so neither are faulty. Would just one stick of DDR 400 in the 1 gig size work ok?

Never use a memostick who arent suported my the MoBo. In your case you sould use 266 sticks and nothing else. The reason why the book says "Use 266" is because the bus is only suport that speed. Using 400 sticks dosent give you that advantage coz your MoBo automatycli take the 400 down to 266. If you putting in more 400 sticks You can damage your MoBo. Your MoBo arent capeble to handle all that. So if you want a stable PC ALWAYS use the recomended momosticks. I shure that you will have even more truble by putting in 1gb of 400 sticks.

Good luck

Memory problem


When you install your RAM you should make sure it is the same spec as that you removed. I would suggest that you use 2 512 mb sticks as it will be faster than a single 1gb stick. Make sure you buy DDR 400 RAM You need to look for PC3200 RAM.

I want tobuy 1gb memory card for my ms 6787 ver2.. what is the specific type of memory card is the best for my board (1gb or 512mb only)


For this particular motherboard, you need a 184-pin DDR SDRAM DDR 266 (PC 2100) memory module. These can be found in sizes ranging from 256MB to 1GB. There are several places that these could be found on the internet. Pricing for a 1GB module seems to be around $44 or $45 USD currently.

The MS-6787 supports a maximum of 2GB of RAM (1GB in each DIMM slot).

Hope this is helpful!

Reset your motherboard BIOS. Open your computer casing where the motherboard lies in and then find the bios setting jumper, it should be located near the battery. To reset your bios, refer to the motherboard manual. :-)

Memory problem


hi, are the sticks all the same type? make sure they are seated well, had same problem on my msi board, i seated them and moved them side to side carefuly. and it saw the sticks not detected before. also if they are not the same specs, there may be a compatability problem, most ram is backward compatable, but if not the same specs could be a problem. in my case the slots were worn from too many upgrades,and seating them properly worked. hope this helps you, happy new year!
