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. __For example, 4 GB of memory size will instead be shown as 3.xxGB memory during system startup.____To use a DDRII 667 memory module on the motherboard, you must install an 800/1066MHz FSB processor.____Please also refer to the image below

You should have not installed ChickHen in your PSP 3001 since there are no known ways so far, not even by Dark Alex, to fix it from "Brick"-ing. YOur attempts to remove the battery and so on to fix it is futile because even Pandora Battery and Magic Memory Stick won't work on those versions of PSP.
Try sending it to S0ny...
If you intend to buy a new PSP, either buy those Slim that is version 2000 and those that are NON (remember NON) TA088v3 MoBo. From this MoBo onward to PSP 3000s, all is unhackable and cannot be fixed from Brick.

Ok i have 2 1gb corsair memory sticks and when i put them both in they wont work but when i use one it will its the slot on the mother board i think is there anyway to fix it


try the known good memory stick and try to reseat the memory stick to every slot that your mobo have. so you would know if the problem is with the mobo or the memory stick itself

Problems with Foxconn 6100K8MA-RS Motherboard memory upgrade


This is an oldtime POST code memory error. Likely that ram is either installed wrong, bad RAM or the mobo doesn't like one of the memory sticks.

See http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm.

You must count the beeps.

Motherboard compatibility


If you want to replace the mobo always compare the cpu-slot and the memory slots.
Tok a fast look on both of the mobos and both supports same cpu, both supports same memosticks though the the one you have supports ddr2 667mgz and the new one you found supports ddr2 1333+mhz. So you can use it but you may have to buy faster memosticks if you want to use the full power of it.

Here is the support site for the new one:
http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/Products/Motherboard/Products_Overview.aspx?ProductID=2843

On that site you will also find all the drivers you may need if you buy it

And here is the support site for the mobo you have:
http://www.giga-byte.com/Products/Motherboard/Products_Overview.aspx?ClassValue=Motherboard&ProductID=1960&ProductName=GA-8I945P-G-RH

Now you can compare yourself if you want.
BTW, that GA-EP45-DS3 is a very good mobo

Good luck to you

Compatible vid card for my foxconn P4M9007MB MOBO


You will be fine with nVidia 9800 ! thats perfect for your mobo.
Youst make sure you have enough of memory to, those games you talking about needs a lot of memory to work perfect.
I suggest you install at least 3GB memo, or even better 4GB. Thats the maximum of memory you can have on that mobo.

Here is the spec of your mobo

Will not POST with 2g of kingston hyperX ram inside


If you are going to call. The question I would ask (Very important), will the board run with CL2 = 2.5v & or CL3 = 2.6 to 2.65volt memory.
This site is Kingston memory setter. Type in the board & it show's the type of memory the board can use. (Click on this link). As you look at the link this is for you're P4M80-M4 board.
http://www.ec.kingston.com/ecom/configurator_new/modelsinfo.asp?SysID=33018&mfr=Biostar&model=P4M80&root=&LinkBack=&Sys=33018-Biostar-P4M80-M4+Motherboard&distributor=0&submit1=Search
This should help. I did not see a bios upgrade for this board that had anything to do with memory. The USA Biostar link is lacking opposed to the global link. The global manual give far more information (In depth), for bios instructions.
Global link: http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en-us/mb/driver.php?S_ID=246

I'm sure the Kingston link will more than help you the_OCer.
Good luck!
