Re: Memory Issues

PC2700 (DDR333) memory and PC3200 (DDR400) are backward-compatible with PC2100. Memory is designed to be backward-compatible, so generally speaking, you can safely add faster memory to a computer that was designed to run slower memory. However, your system will operate at the speed of the slowest module or system component (the "lowest common denominator" effect). One thing to keep in mind is that the memory does need to be the same type-for example, SDRAM cannot be mixed with DDR, and DDR cannot be mixed with DDR2. Let me know if you have any questions. Good Luck, Tim

1GB PC400 RAM does not work with motherboard A7S266-VM/U2

Hello the home page is here:

If any drivers or manual needed select first your windows.
Click on global for download.
Unzip the file and you need a pdf reader (adobe) to read the content.

Here are some specification about you mainboard:

2 x DDR DIMM Sockets
Max.2GB unbuffered PC2100/PC1600 non-ECC SDRAM Memory
2 x SDR DIMM Sockets
Max.2GB unbuffered PC133/PC100 non-ECC SDRAM Memory

(Note: DDR ram and SD ram memory can not be used on A7S266-VM/U2 simultaneously)

This means you can`t use SD RAM together with DDR ram.

The bios could have a setting for this because of the use of 2 different ram types.

Try downloading the manual.

Good luck

Your MB can take a max of 2 GB RAM. And it has to be DDR SDRAM. So, please ensure that it is compatible. Then only would it accept the RAM SIMM else it may damage the mother board. or the RAM itself.

*********** board is Asus old p4 Mother board.It supports maximum 1GB RAM of DDR 400(DDR1). According to your post your computer having only one 512 MB working RAM. If you want good purformance you can upgrade your computer by purchasing another 512MB DDR400 RAM and install it on another RAM slot.If your computer have only one working RAM slot,you can purchase 1GB DDR400 RAM & install it on older RAM place. I think it solves your problem.if you have any problem come back with more information. I will try to assist you more accurately.

Asrock K7VM2 Motherboard Memory Upgrade

Some MOBO support different type of memory modules like ddr 400, 333,533 and other, if your computer is working fine with that PC400 it only means that your MOBO is compatible with it. Since you're planning to upgrade the memory just get another PC400 because the memory should be the same to work fine.

P4vmm2 wont boot up

Disconnect power cord, remove the button cell battery, press the power button to dissipate any stray volts, replace button cell, plug in cord and re-boot, this will reset bios to default settings.

You will get a check sum error so enter bios to re-set date time and other settings.

P4vmm2 motherboard

you can add up to 2 gb RAM using either 2 x 184 Pin DIMMs or 2 x 168 Pin SDRAM DIMMs. However that MB does support pc400. The supported RAM speeds are 100, 133, 200, and 266 MHz

You can buy a pair of Kingston 256 MB DDR SDRAM PC2100 (266 MHz) from the kingston website for under $50
part no: KVR266X64C25/256

Kingston is a well known and respected manufacturer of memory.
