PC want start after replacing memory card

I changed my memory card from 512 mb to 1 gb, reinserted the stick to the motherboard and now wont turn on. Changed back to original memory stick and still wont start up, just freezes! I have the right memory stick for the motherboard, and had it double check to ensure correct one.

    Thanks for feedback, I tried all that and still didn't work, someone suggested unplugging all adaptors inside the PC on the motherboard,DVD drive etc and restart and it seems to have worked!

    Thanks

Hello


1. Make sure that your computer supports 1Gb on 1 slot.

2. If you touched the chips with your hand you might have BURNED the chips with static electricity from your hands.

3. But before you start panicking check if you have moved the video card, if you did the PC won't show up anything and will halt at start up.

3. One last thing you might do to get the computer booting up again is to remove the CMOS battery for say 1 minute and then put it back in place to reset CMOS just in case. Then plug in your old memory in place turn off replace and try the new one. turn off try install both (never touching the chips on the RAM) and turn on again.

Hope that this helps :)

Will 9500 GT either 512 mb or 1 gb work on intel la crosse D865GLC board..?? it has 3 pci slots 32-bit long..


Yes you can.
For 512 Mb RAM you can use a single 512 Mb memory module or two 256 Mb memory modules.
For 1 Gb RAM you can use a single 1 Gb memory module or two 512 Mb memory modules.

Hello Sir, I had 512 MB 533 MHz DDR2 RAM(Dynet). Now I have bought 1 GB 667 MHz DDR2 RAM(Dynet). My system has 2 slots. In one slot, I have 512 MB RAM and in another slot, I installed 1 GB RAM that I have...


The Intel D102GGC2 uses a Dual Channel Memory Architecture meaning that both slots need to be running at the same speeds. I would suggest getting another 667 MHz RAM card and installing it along side your current one, just as I reminder this motherboard only supports 2GB RAM Max so don't get one that is above 1GB.

I have intel d845gvs1 motherboard with P4 2.4 ghz, Currently have 2 ram (512mb & 256 mb) how much further can i upgrade the ram, 1GB or 2GB also is the current combination of ram is right?


"Supports up to 2 GB of system memory with DIMMs utilizing 512 Mbit
technology DRAM devices"-intel

you can use 2 sticks of 1 gig apiece to get to 2 gigs of total memory, but you have to make sure that the ram sticks use "512Mbit " technology.

the 512Mbit technology refers to the arrangement of memory chips on the ram cards. a card which uses 64Mx8 (8 seperate memory chips of 64M apiece) would be appropriate.

"Nearly all motherboards only recognize 1 GB modules if they are low density 64M×8 modules. If high density 128M×4 1 GB modules are used, they most likely will not work."-wikipedia"

I am trying to expand memory by inserting 2 PC3200 (DDR400) but total amont of memory size does not changed (still 512 MB) First slot (DDR1) APACER-512 MB Second slot (DDR2) LG Electronics - 1GB


Hi,

Take the stick of 512 out of the motherboard and insert the 1GB stick in DIMM 1 slot and switch the machine on. If it comes on check whether it has registered it as 1GB. If it has turn the machine off and just put in the 512 stick.

If the machine won't boot up with the 1GB stick then it could be faulty or the motherboard doesn't support 400MHz (which it should).


Regards.

RAM NOT DETECTING


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.

Memory upgrade for P6VEM3 MB


For this mainboard, you must use 168-pin, 3.3V unbuffered PC100 or PC133 SDRAM memory modules. You can install any size memory module from 32 MB to 512 MB, so the maximum memory size is 2 x 512 MB = 1 GB. As noted on pg. 9 of your manual. Shut down your system. Remove one dimm of memory & start the Pc. Does it boot & do you have video? No? Shut down & replace the the dimm with next stick of memory. Try again. Still no video? Replace memory with old memory. Did you regain video? In most cases of installing new memory it's found the memory just wasn't seated well enough. In few others the memory did not meet the correct voltage.
prazum post back your findings.
