Question about Computers & Internet
Bit ix38 quad gt motherboard with 2 gig of ddr2 ram i want to add a 1 gig stick of more ram that ive bought how do i do this? thanks windows seven
You should be able to just add a new DDR2 1066 DIMM. Unplug PC and open both end tabs and push down till both end close. Use static precautions of course. System should auto pick up.

Top view of motherboard, scroll down. (Thought you might also like to read the reviews, and Comments)
Motherboard User Manual,
1) On the motherboard the Blue ram memory slot that is closest to the copper heatsink, is ram memory Slot 1.
Also known as DIMM 1.
Ram memory ALWAYS has to be in this ram memory slot.
The Processor reads ram memory Slot 1 first.
2) The Blue ram memory slots are Slot 1 (DIMM 1), and Slot 3.
The Black ram memory slots are Slot 2 (DIMM 2), and Slot 4.
To run Dual Channel ram memory, means there are two LIKE ram memory modules ('Stick'), and they are installed in the SAME channel.
This would mean to alike ram memory modules, in both Blue ram memory slots, or both Black ram memory slots.
Since the ram memory modules need to be alike, they are generally purchased from the same manufacturer, and are the same kind.
Running ram memory in a dual channel configuration, is supposed to increase ram memory 'speed', up to 30 percent.
This is Baloney!
May look good on paper, but in actual use in the field it's cr@p.
Actual performance increase is more like 1 to 2 percent.
This has been proven by Tom's Hardware, and many, many motherboards, ram memory, Processors, etc.
So you have 2GB of DDR2 Sdram, huh?
Is it just one 'stick' of ram memory, or are you referring to two 1GB sticks?
If the above holds true install them in Slot 1 and Slot 3.
If not, and it is a 2GB stick of ram memory, be sure it is installed in Slot 1 (DIMM 1)
Install the 1GB stick in Slot 2.
It isn't the same as the 2GB stick.
It is 1GB.
Does NOT go in a dual channel configuration.
(Catching all this? There is NO dual channel ram memory!
It is ram memory that is -> ALIKE, and used in a -> dual channel configuration.
Used in two separate ram memory slots, that support the dual channel configuration.
Sold with the advertising scheme of 'Dual Channel', but really just means the two ram memory modules, (Or four), are -> alike.
1) Same Voltage used
2) Same Ram Timings
3) Same Chip Configuration
4) Same size in amount
5) Same frequency rate ('Speed')
With ram memory in a dual channel configuration, the ram memory modules team up on the task.)

SOURCE: 2 gig ram stick
Absolutely, 2 Gigs stick of RAM exist. Unfortunately your motherboard's maximum memory supported is 2GB. This site specifies very clearly 1 gig stick max per slot:

SOURCE: Can I add 2 One gig ram sticks
try to look at your manual if it is compatible in you motherboard then make sure that the RAM the you buy is the same speed in your old 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.
THE CHIP DESIGN LAYOUT MAYBE THE OPPOSITE SIDE, THIS MAY MEANS THE CHIPS MAY FACE EACH OTHER, OR FACE OUTWARD FROM EACH OTHER.
