Question about Biostar GEFORCE 6100-M9 Motherboard
I can't seem to find this anywhere. I have two 1GB high density sticks that don't work. I don't even get a splash when booting. I'm assuming that it doesn't take high denstity, but thought I'd ask to be sure.
SOURCE: New ram makes my pc freeze
The manual doesn't show a combination of 3 sticks of memory. Only 1,2, or 4 sticks. Something to do with early CPU revisions.
DIMMA1 or 2 can be used individually or together, but both DIMMB1 and 2 must be filled if more than 2 sticks of mem are installed. The memory doesn't have to be the same in all 4 slots. However, what's not stated in the manual, is that if you want to enable the Dual Channel support the #1 sockets of both channels must be the same and likewise the #2 sockets. (not the sockets right next to each other) I don't know if Dual Channel can be run on one set and not the other. A free program called CPUz from CPUID .com will tell you if dual channel is enabled and everthing else you never knew about your computer. Go for (2) 1gb and (2) 512mb of the fastest you can afford. This puts you at the limit for 32bit systems.

This mainboard uses DDR400 memory
A High Density module is by far much slower than Low Density module at the same speed rating say PC3200/DDR400. High density modules are FAR CHEAPER, less than half the price when compare with low density modules and hence high density modules will NOT work on 90% of today's PC chipsets. LOW DENSITY modules have 100% compatibility with ALL systems and ALL chipsets. HIGH DENSITY modules only have 10% compatibility and are VERY SLOW.
So AVOID those 'High-Density - 128Mx4 config 1GB modules which is usually UNBRANDED and is NO NAME!
With this in mind it is far better to use low density Ram. Most RAM cards today are double sided, it all depends on the capacity of the RAM card.
Please rate this solloution as it it much appreciated.
