PC can't boot up after installing memory

I have an ASUS P5RD1-VM motherboard. I have 512MB memory modules from each of two manufacturers Maestro (Double sides) and VGEN (Single side). I am running XP Prof with BIOS ver 1104. After installing them on two slot in MB, the computer can't boot up (no boot process on monitor). I've tried to change the both memory position in both slot, but PC still won't boot up. Is there any solution for this problem. BTW, the 2 memory modules all operate fine if installed one at a time in both slot.

Memory on a computer can be hit or miss.
You mention that you have two sticks of memory from two different companies. As long as they are the same type of memory and both fit in the slots, there is a chance that they will work together.
But the only test is to turn the computer on. If it boots, you made it.
If it does not boot, trouble.

Here is what you do, which I think you may have done already.

1. Install one stick by itself, and see if the pc boots up fine.
If it does, then you know that stick is working. Turn off the pc.
2. Now take out the first stick and install the other stick. Boot the pc and if it boots, then the other stick works fine. Turn off pc.
3. Now install BOTH sticks, boot up pc, and see if it works.
If not, turn off pc, move each stick to the other slot, and boot up again.

If it does not work now, I am afraid that you will only be able to run the pc with either one stick or the other, but not both, because sometimes memory from different manufacturers will not work together, and there is nothing that can be done about it.

The surest thing to do is buy memory from the same manufacturer to use together, from good brand names like:

CORSAIR
KINGSTON
PNY

The good thing is that your computer works, and you have at least 512 MB. Check your motherboard manual for the exact type of memory it needs when ready to buy.

thanks!

P5rd1-vm - will RAID setting delete my data


Suggest you enter the bios and make a setting change. Open the manual to page 2-24.
The M1573 RAID function set this to [Disabled].
(This will stop the bios from loading the RAID controller.)
See boot menu page 2-31 section 2.6
Set section 2.6.1 Boot device priority as shown.

(The drive with windows installation on it should be in the boot order).
You can also unplug either the data cable or power cable of the slave drive to assure it does not boot. If you still receive a blue screen with the primary drive suggest you re-install windows or boot to the windows CD and create a new partition within the free space of the primary drive. Install windows complete including updating. When finished you'll be able to copy you're data to the new windows. Use windows disk manger program (diskmgmt.msc) in the run window to delete the old windows partition.
Some programs will need to be reinstalled.

Motherboard ASUS P5RD1-VM ram problem


More people should complain with Asus support. Checking Asus forums, you'll find there's an obvious problem with a PCI-E video addon + 2 used memory slots. In my case, I had 2Gb (1 + 1), mb with bios version 1104, and it worked fine; when I installed a new PCI-E card, the system was very... very sluggish. Now I have uninstalled 1 memory, I'm using only 1Gb of RAM with the PCI-E card, and it's working well.

Again: checking Asus forum, this is a reported problem, and a bios bug... Asus should release a new bios version, but they seem not to bother, as this is a relatively "old' mb...
