Hello,
Thanks for choosing FixYa.

If your RAM was bad or not inserted correctly you would hear four beeps in rapid succession at bootup.

If you have to force a RAM module into place this is not a good sign. Sometimes it is hard to get a RAM module to seat. But so long as you have it aligned correctly you should be okay using force to seat it so long as the clamps lock on the RAM module.

So, if you are not hearing any beeps at bootup and you are using only one RAM module, you probably need to place the single RAM module in a particular slot. You either have two or four slots. In either case when using one RAM module you should move it to another slot or reread your manual that states clearly the RAM module mapping and points out which slot to insert when you are only using a single module.

Thanks for using FixYa,

    The RAM modules are often very close to the main power plug from the power supply. It has a release clip. Close the cip and pull up on the main power plug. Make sure the power supply is off or you have unplugged the power cord first. After removing the power plug at the main system board, reinsert it and try again.

    The only other explanation, should you continue to have no response, no fans, etc. Is that the power supply killed itself to protect your system. This happens. These don't cost a great deal of money, you only want to make certain the values are the same for your replacement power supply. If your's is 450Watts, get a 450Watt or larger. That's if you need one.

    Unplug your PC, remove the main power attachement on the motherboard and then reinsert it. Plug your PC back in and try again.

    Regards, and ready to help.

Hello. I can't find any indication about my RAM. I have a Packard Bell Easy Note, model MX52, and i want to replace my RAM but i dont found any indication on withch memories should i use. TK...


One good and easy way to find out for sure how much RAM your computer can hold is to go to WWW.CRUCIAL.COM and run their SCAN MY COMPUTER feature.

This handy utility will scan your hardware configuration and tell you exactly how much RAM you currently have installed and what type it is.

It will also tell you how many RAM slots are fitted on your motherboard and what the maximum memory capacity is for each slot and the total capacity for that motherboard.

If your computer does have room to add more RAM, it will provide you with specific recommendations as to exactly what type and size of RAM stick to get to maximize the memory capacity and performance of your computer.

I hope that was helpful to you, good luck.

ASUS P5VD2-MX SE recognizes only up to 2500MB RAM


Hi,

Actually you are doing better than you think, According to your MB specs it is only supposed to hold a max of 2GB (1GB per slot). The updated BIOS may be allowing for the additional 500MB.

If you would like to verify, here is a link to the manual for your MB:

P5VD2-MX SE Manual

See page viii.

Asus p5 vdc-x motherboard not recognizing ddr2


Ok i am just guessing here

maybe your motherboard does not support

ddr2 rams and hence it wont boot up as it does not detect any ram in the slots......

try to boot with one old and one new ram (ddr and ddr2) and post the result

are you sure whether the ddr2 ram is supported?

Ram assurance


The schematic layout of the P5VDC-MX on the user manual shows that there are 4 DIMM banks, set as 2 X 2 rows, 2 DDR2 and 2 DDR.

The user manual explicity states:

I am running different frequency modules without any problems. With the info above provided by ASUS, it may be possible that a fix could be available with a BIOS update. Otherwise, you can opt to use a lower capacity RAM along with your 1GB Corsair.

Hope this helps.

Can i install 1GB ddr2 on P4VMM2 Motherboard? i want to upgrade my pc; board is: can i P4VMM2 Motherboard; cani i use 1GB ddr2 on this and a 512 MB if vid.card? -jayvee_yao@yahoo.com


Hi,

Unfortunetly you cannot use ddr2 memory on this motherboard. The motherboard supports only PC2100/PC1600 DDR memory if you have version 8.1 of the motherboard. If you have v5.0 of the motherboard than you can only use sdram or ddr 266Mhz RAM. The same goes for the video card. The p4vmm2 motherboard is a rather old motherboard so I don't think it will payoff to upgrade the computer. It will be probably the best if you buy another computer.

best regards
