Question about Intel D102GGC2 Motherboard
I have intel D102g mother board. that can accomodate max 2gb RAM (DDR2) throug dual channel. however i have properly inserter two ram's one is 512mb other is 1gb. but system shows only one channel is active that to the channel that has 1gb ram. if exchange the rams the activated channels also shift, and it shows only 856mb, but it should be near 1.5 gb. tell me how to activate the other channel through BIOS setting
Hi shinde32, you should know that dual channel memory should be bought as a pair. Your board has two DIMM slots as you mentioned. The board can handle up to 2GB max memory, as you have mentioned. What you do not seem to know is it is required to use the same amount of memory is each slot. See the bottom of page 55 in your manual. (Do you need the manual)? Download at this link;
There is not a bios setting where you can enable or disable memory channels. The bios configures the memory automatically. Intel has a list of memory tested & passed for the D102GGC2 Mb. You can see that list at this next link.
Bottom line, both DIMM slots should have two 512MB DIMMS or two 1GB DIMM's. (Like this memory);
This is what your search would look like,
"1GB x 2 DDR2 dual channel 533MHz SPD memory".
The Certified "SPD" is important for Intel MB's.
Good luck shinde32!
