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 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.
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, Lee
*********** Board is :Foxconn P4M800P7MA-RS2
Max Supported RAM : 2GB DDR2
Supported RAM speed: 533 MHz • 400 MHz • 333 MHz • 266 MHz. I think it deffinately solves your problem.If you have any problem post your comment with more information.
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.
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.
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.
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.
If your PC boots up successfully and load windows then its mean that RAM is working fine... There is some problem with OS settings.. So at XP booting press F8 for start-up menu and select Last known good configuration... Hope it will work...
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.
