Question about Albatron PM266A Pro Motherboard

1 Answer

1Gig not found

My motherboard is not seeing the 1gig stick of ram that I am trying to use. When trying to start it gives out a long beep indicating that there is no ram in the comp. The ram is a DDR266 1074 stick which is what the board is supposed to support. It works fine with the 256mb stick I am trying to replace. The 1gig stick is not faulty, it works in anothe comp just fine.

You may also need to clear the cmos settings as the ram timing and detection may need to be cleared. JBAT1 or CLRCMOS or RTC or refer to the motherboard manual for clearing the cmos, re insert your new ram and try again, although you need to set the time and date again.

    the only way to solve it will be to search for the same make ram that you already have to ensure it is compatable.

I have a p4s533-mx motherboard with 1.7ghz intel processor, my system had 1gig pc3200 and 256mb pc400 at 400mhz ddr1 ram, now my system suddenly wont pick up the 1gig ram card, only beeps when powered up...


The RAM modules may not be compatible with each other.
Try using the same make RAM modules.
Try Installing the 1Gb RAM module without the 256Mb RAM module.

Not reading the correct memory


Well, depending on what your ram and how much you have installed. This motherboard only supports up to 1gig max.

Memory * 2 x 168-pin SDRAM DIMM
* Maximum 1.0GB
* PC133
No matter how much more ram you install, it will not read more than 1gig.

Computer will not work with extra 1gb ram


Hi,
It sound like you have incompatible memory. Try taking out the original 256 and test with the 1 gig. Keep in mind some PC requires memory to be paired. If you only have one, 1gig memory chip you might need to get another. I would try removing the 256 first. The specification of the motherboard would also tell you the memory usage.
Let me know if this helps!!

DDR2's only showing half installed RAM


IF THE SYSTEM SAYS YOU HAVE 1GB RAM THAN YOU HAVE 1 GIG OF RAM, EVEN THOU SOMEONE TOLD YOU YOU HAD 2-512MG=1GB.

HERE IS HOW I SEE WHAT YOU ARE SAYING YOU HAVE 2-DDR-2 1 GIG STICKS THAT MEAN IF 1 IS INSTALLED THAN YOU HAVE 1 GB AND IF YOU COULD GET 2 STICKS WORKING TOGETHER THAN YOU WOULD HAVE 2GB RAM.
1 CHIP SET = 1GB RAM
2 CHIP SET = 2GB RAM

YOU MOTHERBOARD MAY NOT ALLOW THAT MUCH RAM, OR WHAT I MEAN THE BIOS MAKE UP THE AMOUNT OF RAM.

TO RULE OUT ANY BAD CHIP SETS OR GOOD RAM OR BAD RAM.

TAKE THE PEACE OF RAM THAT IS WORKING OUT AND REPLACE IT WITH THE OTHER PEACE AND SEE IF IT WILL RUN.
IF IT WORKS THAN LEAVE THAT ONE IN PLACE AND INSTALL THE SECOND PEACE IN THE SECOND SLOT.
IF BOTH CHIP SET ARE GOOD THAN BOTH SHOULD WORK OKAY TOGETHER.
IF THERE IS A PROBLEM, IT MAYBE SOME DUST IN THE MEMORY LOTS
OR THE SLOT MAYBE DAMAGED.
OR
THE CHIP DESIGN LAYOUT MAYBE THE OPPOSITE SIDE, THIS MAY MEANS THE CHIPS MAY FACE EACH OTHER, OR FACE OUTWARD FROM EACH OTHER.

Installing 2 sticks of 1 gb ram = DRAM error beeps


If the computer is working with one gb stick and not the other, try this:

Swap the sticks with the one that does work. If it works then its the memory card slot on the motherboard. If it doesn't boot up, then it's the memory stick.

The Bios on the laptop motherboard only will recognize a total of 1gig Ram. So the 256 stick would be removed and 2- 512 sticks installed.

Memory upgrade


The memory should be DDR II Ram. To find how much ram you have simply click on Start then right click on "My Computer" and click properties. Chances are you have 512 ram. It will tell you in the lower right hand side along with your processer and windows version. Once you have found out how much ram you have, turn off your computer flip it upside down and pull out the battery. Then you should see a cover with one or two screws in it that measures about 3 inch by 4 inch. Remove the screws and take the cover off. This is where your memory goes. If there is 512 memory in your computer you will either have 1 512 memory stick or 2 256 sitcks. Remember that any time you upgrade memory it is best to take out the old memory and replace with either one stick of higher ram or two of equal ram. Never mis a 512 and a 256 or 512 and 1gig ect. Take the ram stick/sticks out and bring them down to the store with you just so as to get the correct memory. Also, remember when you replace the memory, if you are just upgrading to one 1gig stick to put it in the A DIMM slot. This is the primary ram slot.
