Problem adding Additional Ram to my Asus A8N SLI DELUXE system

I have had a working A8N SLI Deluxe system for almost a year with the 3500+ chip in it and 2gb (1gbx2) of PQI pc3200 in it. I used some cash from Christmas to buy a new 1 GB stick. I put it in my computer and there was a problem. The Motherboard see's the ram as 3gb, but shows only 2gb as usable. Windows XP Pro does not see the additional gb of ram. I've tried updating my bios and that didn't help. Any thoughts what I can do before I take the ram back? The new ram is PNY pc3200. I'd love to just replace the whole thing, but don't have the money yet.

    Hey, Thanks for the help. I did check into what you had to say about the double sided chips, but that is only on the premium and not the deluxe a8n boards. I went ahead and bought another 1 gig stick of the same ram and when I put it in the board would not beep but gave me one long beep and two short beeps. I have not yet checked what they mean on the Asus website. I went ahead and took both sticks of ram back to the store and got my money back. Maybe I'll just upgrade the whole thing when I get my tax return this year. Once again Nick, thanks for the help... It did push me in the right direction.

Just because BIOS is recognizing the RAM doesn't necessarily mean it is usable. Also, ASUS recommends that you have the same amount of RAM in each bank. Another point they make is that your motherboard does not support double-sided DIMM chips.

I would refer to the manual for their specific instructions on proper RAM configuration:

http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socket939/A8N-SLI%20Premium/e2435_a8n-sli_premium.pdf

If you are concerned that the memory stick might be bad, swap it out with one of your older ones, and see if your system boots and performs as it should. If not, then you know it is bad. My guess is that if you populate the memory slots with 4 gb, the system will recognize and make all of it available to you.

Cheers
Nick

No video after replacing chip fan


Try a different video-card -- a "no-spin" fan and "no-video" implies a dead video-card (or at least a video-card that is not "seated' properly).

Check that the PC-speaker leads are connected to the motherboard, so that you could hear any "beep" codes. There should be one "beep" to indicate 'OK', or multiple "beeps" (bad RAM, no video-card detected).
