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,

http://www.theraptorpit.com/forum/index.php?/forum/124-abit-motherboard-tech-support-unofficial/

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.
(DIMM 3)
The Black ram memory slots are Slot 2 (DIMM 2), and Slot 4.
(DIMM 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.)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

    IF it's a single 2GB stick of DDR2 Sdram, I ADVISE you to put it in Slot 1. (DIMM 1)

If you're running XP SP2, that may be by design because of something Microsoft did in SP2.

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: 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.

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


put it in an open memory slot although its recommended to add it for an even amount of memory (ie. 2, 4, 6, 8) if im not mistaken 4 slots w/ 8Gb max memory

go here: http://www.crucial.com/, and make sure all is compatible, with free memory scanner(it is safe i have used it and got no viruses)

Ram compatibilty


Yes you can but the higher spec DDR2/800 RAM will run at at lower speed same as the DDR2/ 667 RAM.
When you install the DDR2/800 RAM and the BIOS only detects 1Gb of RAM then this RAM is not compatible with the 1st RAM module. In this case use RAM module that is the same make and speed as the original RAM module.

Unable to add more match RAM using secondary slots


You need the motherboard manual to make sure it can take more.
It may only accept 4 gig. For example: 2 x 2 gig strips or 4 x 1 gig strips.Or you may need to use single sided ram boards, chips on only one side. I know some motherboards do.

Bought 2 gigs of RAM but Pavillion NY801AV-ABA p6100z doesn't recogize it.


I hope I can help!
Now, without knowing exactly what kind of ram you purchased, I cannot tell you for sure what the problem is, but this is the most likely, and most common problem. That is to say, your computer probably does not support whatever kind of RAM you purchased for it.
There are Multiple kinds of RAM (DDR, DDR2, DDR3 - not including older variations), and many different speeds. Each motherboard in every computer can run only certain kinds of RAM, and supports certain speeds. Sometimes a motherboard will support multiple speeds, but some are more limited.As far as the type, most motherboards will only physically support one type, so that should not be a problem as any other kind simply should not fit. Looking at the specs of your computer, it is also possible that your computer limits the size of a stick of RAM that must be placed in each spot (It looks like you cannot have a stick of less than 2 gigs in any spot). That is probably not the problem as you purchased 2 gigs of RAM. It should also be noted that your computer supports a maximum of 4 gigs of RAM.
All of that being said, the most likely problem is that you accidentally purchased the wrong speed of RAM. Looking at the specs of your computer, the only speed it supports is DDR 2 PC2 - 6400. It would probably be best to return the RAM your purchased and get some DDR2 PC2 - 6400 RAM. If this does not describe your problem, or if there is more to it, please ask!
I hope that helps!

One of the ram isnt recognised???


This is likely a memory timing incompatibility. You can go into the BIOS settings of many motherboards and set the timing specifically for each RAM slot, but without knowing exactly which piece of RAM you have I can't tell you what to set it at. You could use the utility CPU Z, install one stick, run the utility and write down all the memory information, then install the other stick and write it down too. Then go into your BIOS and see if you can set all of your specifications to match the memory.

Of course if you could find someone to swap sticks with that would be easier. Some motherboards are more picky than others about which sticks they work well with, name brand manufacturers are more picky than aftermarket in general.

Ram Upgrade


Max speed supported for your mobo is: DDR2-533
You will have to buy (4) 1gb sticks (2gb sticks not supported)
To use all four gigs of ram you need a 64 bit os.32 bit only supports 3gb of ram. Hope this helps!
Here is the specs :

ASUS A8M2N-LA (NODUS-GL8E) (DDR2-533MHz) Memory Maximum Memory 4GB Memory Slots 4 (4 banks of 1) non-removable base memory 0MB Machine name: ASUS A8M2N-LA (Nodus-GL8E) Motherboard

Switch sticks around in various combinations (2 gig in slot one, 1 gig in slot two, switch, try other stick, etc) and see if it is the memory or the motherboard.
