Can i upgrade RAM from 533MHZ to 667MHZ for P4M800P7MA?

I need your help.....
I have a foxconn motherboard (P4M800P7MA), it supports both DDR 400 (two slot) and DDR2 533(two slot).

When i bought my PC, I installed a 256MB + 512MB DDR2 533MHZ. My friend given me 2 512MB DDR2 667MHZ RAM. I took out the existing 2 RAM and replace the 667MHZ RAM.,
Sadly, my PC cannot boot up. Is there anyway for settling this problem? I want to use the both the 667MHZ Ram so that my pc speed will become 1 GB, more faster. Please help... Thank You.

    you can find a latest version hear:
    http://www.foxconnchannel.com/support/do...
    And there you can find a user guide that teaches you how to upgrade your bios. But basically you need to create a floppy disk whit your new bios, and boot your computer with that floppy (pressing a key during boot).

    But upgrading bios is a dangerous process, because if you choose a wrong bios or you have a power failure during the process. Your computer will not boot anymore.
    If you don't feel comfortable with this please contact local assistance to do it your you.

Problems with new ram


This = NO

The Foxconn P4M800P7MB-RS2H motherboard supports ram memory that is either 400MegaHertz, or 533MHz.

You have installed 667MHz ram memory.

http://www.play.com/PC/PCs/4-/3274794/-/Product.html

You also need to watch the Front Side Bus (FSB) of the processor you are using.

Ram memory typically operates at HALF of the FSB of the Processor.

Processor FSB support is 800MHz maximum.
Half of that is 400MHz.
You CAN use 533MHz ram memory, however.

(This is DDR2 Sdram ram memory.
PC2-3200 is DDR2 at 400MHz.
PC2-4200 is DDR2 at 533MHz. (Also known as PC2-4300. Depends on the ram memory manufacturer.

PC2-3200 actually operates at 200MHz. { Max} It is 'Dual Pumped'
PC2-4200 actually operates at 266MHz )

What to do?
Hopefully you saved the carton/s the ram memory came in.
Ship them back, get the ram memory you need.

ALSO;

What is the FSB of the Processor you have installed?
Don't know?
Post back in a Comment as to the model name, and model number.

(Example; Intel Pentium D model 805,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_D_microprocessors#.22Smithfield.22_.2890_nm.29

FSB support is 533MHz
No, you cannot use 533MHz ram memory. { PC2-4200 }
PC2-3200 is the max.

Pentium D model 820 for example, you can )

What ramm do i need and how much can i put in


You may use either DDR 400 or DDR2 533 RAM. These will be 184 or 240 pin chips, respectively. The maximum RAM for this motherboard is 2GB total, and you may only use one type of RAM; you are not able to combine different speeds of RAM.

Problem With ddr2 (Upgrade From ddr 512mb 400 to ddr2 1gb 800)


If it works fine with one stick of ram. Then it is the ram that is incompatible. You can try different settings but you may end up that the stick isn't compatible. Hope this helps let me know if you have any other questions.
Thank you,

I need to solvthe problem of my new install memory


According to the specs of this motherboard, it supports DDR 333/400 and DDR2 533/400 memory modules. It does not support DDR2 667 memory modules.
DDR 333/400 memory modules can be installed in the yellow slots, whereas DDR2 533/400 memory modules can be installed in the blue slots.
Only one type of memory modules (either DDR or DDR2) can be used. Mixing of different types of memory modules is not supported.

Not upgrading 1gb ram to asus p5vdc-mx


yeap its the wrong memory.
max mem is 2GB DDR2 533/400 non-ECC, 2 x 184-pin DIMM

or you can use. 2GB DDR 400/333/266 non-ECC,
Note, you cant use both DDR2 and DDR in the same time. so set both memory stick as same type.
so if you set 2x1GB DDR2 533 you get the optimized speed.
hope it helps.

Please help me in my RAM


Hi hope13,
you had it correct the first time. The DDR2 533MHz memory should be in the Blue slots. When using two DIMMS the motherboard requires the DDR2 533MHz memory be of the same size, brand & speed. For you to get a blue screen has nothing to do with you're memory. If there was a problem with you're memory, you bios would let you know by beeping a series of repeating beeps. Blue screens are usually caused by software & some hardware like you're hard drive. If you have data on you're hard drive & you do not want to erase it by re-installing windows fresh (That includes a must format), than I can suggest you download this software from this site. Click on the link.
http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/ Read what the software can do for you. If you do not want the software. Than break out you're windows CD & load it into you're CD-ROM drive. Boot the PC to the CD-ROM drive & in-stall windows. You're PC will function again when you finish installing windows & you're motherboard driver cd.

Good Luck!
I would have posted sooner but I though another was answering you're question.

If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.
Mike

Adding memory and bios upgrading


hey man, I checked the asrock website

Support DDR-II 667/533/400,
If your going to keep the 533mhz memory in your pc, then I recommend you get another 533mhz, becouse if you get a 667mhz the 667 will run as 533mhz becouse the 533mhz memory is slowing it down.

If you need more assistance let me know, I'm here to help
