ASUS A8N5X Unresponsive after RAM Upgrade

Hi,

I just bought 2 Gb of RAM (two 1 Gb, 400Mhz DIMMS) for my A8N5X-based computer, and after getting the RAM installed, the computer doesn't boot. Previously, I had two 512 Mb 400Mhz DIMMS, and it worked fine; however, after taking all the RAM out -- even what was there -- and only putting in one of the new sticks into the A1 or B1 slots, the computer still doesn't boot. I don't see anything on screen, not even the BIOS.

I have no idea what's going on. I don't have a PC speaker to see if I'm getting posts, but the computer works fine with the old RAM. Any ideas?

    No dice. The mobo still doesn't boot.

    Not sure if they're unbuffered. I unfortunately bought from a generic site where it's not listed. Don't know if this helps, but the chipset on the ram is Samsung K4H510838B-TCCC:

Just to verify, are you certain the new DIMMS are unbuffered? That MB does not support buffered DIMMS.

If so, try to install the old ones in A1 and B1 and the new ones in A2 and B2. See if it will boot. If so, check your system to see if the total RAM is being "seen". Comment back.

the RAM upgrade will depend on ur motherboard capacity and specification.
u need to check ur MB manual
if ur MB can have only SD RAM then only SD RAM upgrade is possible...DDR will not work....
so be careful while buying ur RAM

intelD845GLLy MB...the following details are from the intel website

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d845glly/sb/CS-012825.htm

System Memory Features
The D845GLLY board provide the following memory features:
  • Two DIMM sockets supporting 3.3 V (only) 168-pin 133 MHz Single Data Rate (SDR) SDRAM DIMMs with gold-plated contacts
  • Unbuffered non-ECC DIMMs only
  • Maximum total system memory: 2 GB; minimum total system memory: 64 MB
  • Serial Presence Detect (SPD) DIMMs only
  • Suspend to RAM
Caution Do not use ECC DIMMs with the Desktop Board. Using ECC DIMMs could damage the Desktop Board.
Integrator's Notes:
  • Registered DIMMs are not supported on the Desktop Board.
  • This Desktop Board has been designed to support DIMMs based on 512 Mbit technology for a maximum onboard capacity of up to 2 GB, but this technology has not been validated on this board.




Note To be fully compliant with all applicable PCI33 SDRAM memory specifications, the board should be populated with DIMMs that support the Serial Presence Detect (SPD) data structure. This allows the BIOS to read the SPD data and program the chipset to accurately configure memory settings for optimum performance.
hope this helps
Reg....bye

ASUS P5VD2-MX SE recognizes only up to 2500MB RAM


Hi,

Actually you are doing better than you think, According to your MB specs it is only supposed to hold a max of 2GB (1GB per slot). The updated BIOS may be allowing for the additional 500MB.

If you would like to verify, here is a link to the manual for your MB:

P5VD2-MX SE Manual

See page viii.
