Question about MSI KT4V (MS-6712) Motherboard

2 Answers

I have a msi 6712 motherboard. The manual states that I can use up to 3gb of ram. But when I do, there is no boot up proper. If I use just 2gb there is no problem. The speed on the memory is DDR 400mhz. I did try it with DDR 333 mhz, but got the same problem. Can you kindly tell me what I need to do to get this problem sorted? Thanks Earl Johnson

Hi there
Try updating the bios first before you upgrade the ram, this will probably resolve the problem

Kind regards

Where do i put he memory


From the manufacturer's web-site:

http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=proddesc&maincat_no=1&prod_no=557

look at the "green" slots in the picture of the motherboard.
That's where the RAM goes -- note that the RAM has a "notch" that is *NOT* in the "centre" of the stick; so, the RAM only fits *ONE* way into the slot.

On that web-page, it says:

• Supports six memory banks using three 184-pin DDR SDRAMs.
• Supports up to 3GB memory size.
• Supports DDR400/DDR333/DDR266/DDR200 SDRAM
Note: PC3200 (DDR400) maximum 4 banks only.

So, if you buy DDR400 RAM, the maximum is 2GB (2 sticks @ 1GB/stick); if you buy DDR33 RAM, the maximum is 3GB (3 sticks @ 1GB/stick).

Unable to get 3GB of memory to work on the motherboard


Hi enj1956, according to the manual the MB supports only,
"one" DIMM of DDR400MHz.
See page 2-7 in your manual.
You can use 3, PC2700/DDR333 / 3, PC2100/DDR266 or
3, PC1600/DDR200 to reach the 3GB.
All DIMMs must be the same memory type & speed.

Radeon graphics card and 3rd RAM slot conflict


I thought this board looked familiar to me. I recall some rules for the memory cards. Do all your memory cards meet this requirement:

Supports up to 3GB PC1600/2100/2700/3200* DDR SDRAMs

If you are using DDR 400 you can only use 1 slot.

What kind of memory are you using?

VIA CPU to AGP Problem with 3Gb and Vista


Problem is you need to install Vista which support 4Gb! Look for specification on Vista you have!! Mostly XP and Vista support 2Gb!
The problem is in your OS. 32 OS support max 2Gb of ram they detect you 3gb but they couldn't operate with all!!

My msi vis p4m800 motherboard don't support two ram


Hi, does your board have 2 diferent color RAM slots?

if it does you must install the RAM in the same color slots.

If not then you have the option of buying a 512 stick of RAM and installing that as a quick fix. The other alternative is to have your board tested by a technician.
