GA-7VX memory error

November 29, 2012 A Kingston 512MB/PC133CL2 memory module inserted into slot 1 or slot 2 of a Gigabyte GA-7VX mainboard passes test #8 of Memtest86+ v4.20. Another identical memory module inserted into slot 1 or slot 2 passes this test, too. However, if both memory modules are inserted into slots 1 and 2 of the mainboard giving 1024MB of memory, test #8 reveals a great number of memory errors. How can one overcome this error? Thanks and best regards.

    The memory is Kingston KVR133X64C2/512

  • Henry Dombrowsky Nov 30, 2012

    In the BIOS option SDRAM CAS# Latency is set to 2

  • Henry Dombrowsky Dec 02, 2012

    The two memory modules are Kingston ValueRAM 64M x 64-bit (512MB) CL2 SDRAM (Synchronous DRAM) PC133 DIMM module. The components on this module include sixteen 32M x 8-bit (8M x 8-bit x 4 Bank) PC133 SDRAM in TSOP packages. This 168-pin DIMM uses gold contact fingers and requires +3.3V.

    Sorry, didn't mean to be so long with a reply. (Family business) Yes. I checked that ram memory out on Kingston's website, CL2 is OK. 64Meg X 64 bit chip configuartion is OK. 133MHz frequency rate ram memory, uses the JEDEC standard of 3.3 Volts for SDR Sdram ram memory. AND, from further looking the motherboard supports ECC ram memory. Question is; WHY would anyone want to use slow SERVER computer ECC ram memory, on a standard computer? You WOULDN'T. Error Correcting Control. Also known as Error Checking Control. Looks at least twice over the data (Information), to MAKE SURE it has it right. It is Server computer ram memory. Don't know if the Kingston KVR133X64C2/512, is.

Kingston manufacturer code on side of Ram Memory module, please. Need to know if it's compatible. Post back in a Comment.

Should be;

SDR Sdram at 133MegaHertz. (PC133)
LOW-density, unbuffered, Non-ECC, 3.3 Volt, 64Meg X 64 chip configuration, Cas Latency of 3.

Suspect Ram Memory you bought as the problem; especially if it is ECC, high-density, SERVER computer ram memory, sold on Eb** all the time.

Getting rid of surplus inventory, that NOBODY really wants.

Awaiting reply;

SOURCE: Simply upgrade to more memory

Your board and computer are quite old and so I would recoment buying by price. Try either:  newegg. com           of  both of which stand by the products they sell. I also suggest that you not purchase more than two 1gb chips as I believe SDRAM doubles the transfer rate only in pairs. Good luck , Corentint

SOURCE: Memory won't add on a Gigabyte GA-6VEML

First of all its showing you only one 512 RAM in one slot. take out the other 512 RAM and before placing it back gently clean the RAM slot and then place it firmly it should show you 1Gb. If it does not happen please try to interchange the RAM and try to know if the 512 RAM is not Faulty.Get it checked by the Shop from where you have purchsed.

Is a Trident TGUI9680-1 graphics card compatible for a Gigabyte GA-M61PME-S2 motherboard?

These cards were new back in 1995. It WILL work installed in one of the PCI slots, but you will probably have to settle for the default VGA drivers since there most likely won't be anything available for the newer OS's. Don't expect great video quality of fast performance either since machines of that vintage clocked around 200 Mhz, unlike the 2+ GHz machines of today. Good Luck!

The ram slots on my ga-81865gm-775-rh-as MB are reporting my ram chips as 512k each rather than 1g each. The chips are 400mhz, supported, Kingston kvr400x643ak2/1g. I've already removed the ram and...

Hi, you can download a manual here:

Your mainboard supports:

Type: Dual Channel DDR 400 / 333 / 266 support
  1. Max capacity: 2 GB
  2. DIMM slots: 2
* Due to standard PC architecture, a certain amount of memory is reserved for system usage and therefore the actual memory size is less than the stated amount.

Its maybe a setting in the bios or you missing a driver that causes the problem.
Or one of you ram modules is defect.

The Gigabyte mainboard you have uses DDR333, PC2700 RAM memory.
Your model GA-81845GVM-RZ has 2-slots and each slot can have up to a 1GB of memory, therefore you can have 2GB total RAM memory on this model mainboard.

I recommend mainstream, reliable pair of 1gb each memory modules such as Crucial.

Good Luck

Motherboard will not run with 8gig mem

I suspect this is a memory compatibilty problem - the memory you have listed is not on the GA recommended memory list see -

Note The memory spec of what you are using is set at 2.1v yet your motherboard spec is 1.8v also the latency of your memory is spec 5-5-5-15 2t at 2.1v and 1066mhz - the motherbaord and recommended memory is 5-5-5-15 / 4-4-4-12 at 1.8v at 800mhz

Try down specing the system memory to run at 800mhz not 1066 - this will reduce your processor speed as well, but at least it might work. there is no guarantee as the latency at 800mhz is 5-5-5-18 for your memory.
