Memory Problems (MSI KM4M-V Motherboard)

My motherboard is an MSI KM4M-V, and should be able to accommodate 512MB of RAM.0 DDR RAM (DDR-333). It has motherboard has two slots for memory cards. One slot is currently empty, while the other has a 512 MB PC2700 DDR333 with a chip configuration of 64x64….the memory that came with the computer. To increase my memory, I recently decided to buy another 512 MB PC2700 DDR333 memory stick/card with the 64x64 chip configuration. This new stick/card works by itself (i.e., when I remove my existing memory stick/card), but it will not work in conjunction with the existing stick/card. In other words, the two don't work together, but each works on its own.

At that point, I started thinking that I'd simply buy a 1024MB stick/card. I was thinking that maybe the two 512MB sticks/cards won't work together for some strange reason, so I'll just buy a single 1024MB card. The 1024MB card, also, did not work. This lead me to think that the motherboard, which is rated to handle 2GB of memory, will for some reason only accommodate 512MB. I took the computer back to the place that put it together for me three years ago. They were stumped. As far as they were concerned, the motherboard was doing something it shouldn't be doing. I've done some investigating and have determined that I may need to toggle with the bios (memory voltage and/or memory timing). Anyone have suggestions on what may be the problem and what I can do to fix it?

If you know the make and model number of the memory sticks you will need to contact the manufacturer to find the voltage specifications so you can adjust the bios accordingly. Or do a google search with the model number and make of the memory stick for voltage details

I have a KBV-MX motherboard and need to know if the 512MB Kingston memory (KVR400X64C) will be compatible.


Yes Kingston Kvr400x64c 512 MB will be compatible with your motherboard. The Ram form factor and speed supported by your motherboard are PC3200, PC2700, DDR266/PC2100 and DDR400/ 333/ 266, ECC, (non-ECC and ECC).
And the Kingston kvr400x64c 512MB is DDR 333 Non-ECC.

Hope this clears your doubts.

Install DDR-DIMM PC3200 to MS-6367 MSI


That motherboard was made for PC2100 DDR266. A PC3200 DIMM *SHOULD* be backward compatible. Depending on the density of the PC3200 memory you might have problems. If you have not bought the memory yet I would go with the PC2100 for sure since the PC3200 will give you no speed gains at all and will be running at PC2100 speeds anyway.

If you already have the PC3200 memory then I would say just give it a shot. The worse case scenario is your machine will not boot up with the higher speed ram installed. Assuming you take all the normal hardware upgrade care and do not physically break anything you can test this memory with no harm to your motherboard.

KM4M-L and graphics cards/memory queries


I would hate to burst the bubble but if you buy any DDR2 memory, then you will be wasting your money.
This motherboard only supports standard DDR upto 333mhz and only 2gig max of that.

Video card wise, then an ATI 9800 Pro can be had cheaply or an nVidia 6800 AGP version can be purchased new.

Hope it helps =)
