There has to either be a setting in the BIOS that allows you to control the speed and amount of RAM or it is a possibility that some your RAM is bad... Download Ubuntu Live CD and use it's RAM tester. It is possible that some of your RAM is good and some bad. It is also possible that some of the RAM doesn't work work well with the other unless they are identical.

Hi There,

As the memory is ddr2 ram 200mhz is correct in cpuid, 200mhz x2 (ddr2) = 400mhz, The only thing I can guess at why it is not showing all the ram is do you have a graphics card that can use system memory to boost its own? This can be disabled in the bios

A8V-E Deluxe does not allow tablets of Kingston 1GB DDR 400 memory in either slot. Should I do a BIOS update? Can you help please.


Hi bud , Your motherboard is built for dual ram slots , and if you just insert one ram card into it , it could not work,... also see if you can insert the ram into a diferent PC and check if the ram is not faulty , otherwise try update chipset drivers
Hope you come right

How do i update my board is there a driver to do this


If your computer is working well and you do not have a problem specific to your motherboard that would be solved with a BIOS update, I would not recommend it.

However, drivers are available from ASUS support: (choose your operating system)

Graphic card for GA-8IPE1000 series


HI there.
There are loads of makers of memory and graphics cards out there to choose from.
For the ram i would recommend Corsair or Kingston, you can get this ram as a matching pair so the both run at the same speed, the best ram to get is DDR 400.
As for the graphics card, i recommend ATI radeon X1650 Pro 512MB graphics card.
These upgrades will make your machine purr like a kitten with an excellent gaming experience.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Purchasing RAM


DDR3 modules can transfer data at the effective clock rate of 800–1600 MHz using both rising and falling edges of a 400–800 MHz I/O clock. In comparison, DDR2's current range of effective data transfer rate is 400–800 MHz using a 200–400 MHz I/O clock, and DDR's range is 200–400 MHz based on a 100–200 MHz I/O clock.

decide urself, depends onur system support and ofcourse ur buying capacity.

DDR3 is better
