    Also, what motherboard do you have?

    Please give additional information regarding what settings you are attempting to change and to what values. Based on what your changing and how high the values are could be causing your BIOS to reset.

Does the computer fail to boot with default BIOS settings? or only when you modify something? If it fails to boot at default settings:

What OS are you running? and is it 32 or 64.

32 bit OS will not run 4Gig of RAM. 3 is max! so try removing 1 or 2 of the RAM sticks, set BIOS to default values and try again.

If your computer still wont POST then I'd consider RMA the motherboard.

Good luck!

    Ok, now I think I understand what your saying. Everything works properly, but you cant save any changes to the BIOS..and thats it?

    One other thing you might check is the CLRTC jumper. I think yours should be on #2 & 3. Check your manual for proper CLRTC jumper placement, and if all else fails contact ASUS support.

    make sure your saving the changes to the BIOS (F10) and try replacing the CMOS battery. Often, new boards arrive with weak or dead batteries. One of mine did.

What are you changing? The motherboard or one of the peripherals such as memory or video card or drive controller may not like the setting or may be incompatible with certain options causing the problem. You may also want to see if there is a bios update to address the issue.

Good luck.

1GB seen as 512Mb

I think you are right, you have to update your BIOS, or try to change your Kingston to Super Talent or other compatible with your motherboard ram. Good luck!

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


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:

You dont need any driver since your PC is configured as x64 bit processor so all you got to do is get hold of the XP OS which is meant for x64 compatible PC's. The one normally used is 32 bit named as x86. I hope u wont face any difficulty in getting hold of x64 based OS(XP)......sodeep

I had the same issue on this board where it came with a Samsung 512 MB 533 MHz PC2-4200 DDR2 DIMM. I put in a 1 GB Kingston with the same specs (533 MHz PC2-4200 DDR2) and it would not recongize the Samsung anymore with the system reading as 1 GB of RAM instead of 1.5 GB. Tried every configuration and would only see the Kingston. It would only see the Samsung if I pulled out the Kingston regarless of the slots I use. So, I just bought the exact same make/model of Kingston and it recognized that fine and the system now has 2 GB of memory (max this board allows). And, I had already installed the latest BIOS for this board from Intel before doing all this so wasn't an old BIOS. I'm figuring the board didn't like something about the Samsung memory (speed, module configuration, etc.) that made it not play nice with the Kingston. If interested I bought the DM8400A/1G Kingston modules. And, this board appears not to support dual channel memory. Only has channel A, slots 0 and 1, and I read need two channels to support dual channel (seems obvious). Boards that supports dual channel memory normally have 4 memory slots, two for channel A and two for channel B, then put in matching modules in slot 0 for channel A and B and have dual channel memory access. And if want more ram, then matching modules in slot 1 for channel A and B.
