The simple answer is NO, you will need to upgrade to a whole new Motherboard and of course the cost of this is essentially the same as building a whole new PC so you may as well look into a whole new system.

My Ram is 512MBytes and Motherboard Chipset model is i945GZ. Can i use 2GB Ram?????


Hardware Support
The Biostar i945GZ 775 SE supports RAM a maximum of 2GB using its two 240-pin DIMM slots, each can be populated by a 1GB stick. The board supports DDR2 400 or 533. With two identical RAM sticks installed, the board will switch in dual-channel mode operation.For the support of processor, the board can accommodate Intel Pentium 4, Core2Duo and Pentium D, even Celeron D, all with clock speed up to 3.8GHz; and all are based on a LGA775-pin socket architecture. use an Intel Pentium D 820 2.8GHz (dual-core, Smithfield) processor on this board. use the following components to complete the system: CPU: Intel Pentium D 820 (Smithfield) 2.8GHz, dual-core
RAM: Hynix PC2-3200 2x512MB (1024MB) DDR2 400 HD: Seagate SATA-I Barracuda 7200.8 250GB CD/DVD-ROM Drives: HP dvd640, Phillips DVD-ROM

What Type and Make of RAM can system use? okca28@hotmail.com


Hi - It takes PC2-4200 240 pin ddr2 ram up to four gigabytes (it has two ram slots total - so it can use a 2 Gb stick per slot.)

Brand - I personally would buy any brand that was cheapest (make sure the seller has a return policy just in case).

Enjoy your upgrade!

What kind of motherboard is in my acer aspire AST 180-UA381B- It has 4 RAM slots and when i tried to add the 3rd it whent nuts with beeps


The motherboard for the Acer Aspire t180-UA381B desktop computer, is supposed to be based on the Foxconn AM2 MCP61S series of motherboards.

Based on one of these two with some small modifications,

http://www.foxconnchannel.com/product/Motherboards/chipset.aspx?socket_id=en-us0000007&chipset_id=en-us0000090&Socket=Socket+AM2&Chipset=MCP61S

(You can click on Specifications for each motherboard, then click on the photo of the motherboard to enlarge.
After clicking it takes a second, then a small window comes up on the left. Click on the Maximize icon. { Icon to the left of the Red X)

There are Four ram memory slots.

2 of the ram memory slots make up one Channel.
The other 2 ram memory slots make up the other Channel.

When you use ram memory that has the SAME specifications, in the SAME channel, you are using the ram memory in Dual Channel.

[ And I mean the SAME.
Sometimes this means from the same manufacturer.

Same type, same frequency rate, {'Speed'}, same density, same chip configuration, same ram timings, same voltage, Unbuffered, and Non-ECC ]

When you install ram memory in a Dual Channel configuration, the two ram memory modules ('Sticks'), 'piggyback' off of each other.
They essentially team up on the task.

In the past this was thought to increase ram memory 'power' up to 30 percent.

Extensive testing has proven this to be a fallacy.
2 to 3 percent is more accurate.

NOW;
The Maximum Total Amount for the motherboard, (Relying, if it does indeed follow the specs of the Foxconn motherboards linked above), is 4GB.

[ According to Acer Support, the above criteria follows suit,

http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/desktop/0000/Acer/AspireT180/AspireT180sp2.shtml ]

EACH ram slot's Maximum Amount is 1GB.

If, perse, you have 1GB in each of the first 2 ram slots that are closest to the Processor, (Same channel. Same color), and are trying to install a ram memory module of 2 GB in the 3rd slot, this isn't going to work.

If you are trying to install a ram memory module that is of a different frequency rate ('Speed'), it may also not work.

Example: DDR2 Sdram at 667Mhz, (PC2-5300), and DDR2 Sdram at 1066MHz, (PC2-8500)

Further example:
You have 2 sticks of PC2-5300 at a 1GB amount in Slots 1 and 2.
You try to install a stick of PC2-6400, or PC2-8500 of 1GB in Slot 3.

Not happening.

BIOS will try to clock down the faster ram memory to the slower ram memory that is installed.
One step up, (PC2-5300 to PC2-6400 for example), may work.

Two steps up will not.
(Example PC2-5300 to PC2-8500)

It also depends on what Processor you have installed.
Ram memory typically operates at half of the FSB frequency rate, that the Processor's FSB does.

According to Acer Support, an AMD Athlon 64 X2 processor, or an AMD Athlon 64 processor, or an AMD Sempron processor can be installed.

I suggest using CPU-Z from CPUID.com, and find out the exact specs of the hardware inside your computer. (It's free, although they do accept donations}

As stated, Crucial has a good system scan analyzer, but has been found to be unreliable, or doesn't work in some circumstances.

You also need to know the specifications of the ram memory you are installing.

Comparing stock performance ram memory, to high performance ram memory.

Some of the high performance ram memory uses a higher voltage, for one.
For two the ram timings are different.
For three the density of the DRAM chips are different.
For four the Chip Configuration is different.

Just some of the parameters that can vary.

Stock voltage for DDR2 Sdram set by JEDEC at 1.8 Volts.
This is what is set as a default voltage in your computer, for your ram memory.
Use high performance ram memory that may use 2.1 volts, and there's going to be a problem.

Also if you purchased this ram memory from Ebay, good luck.

Need to know WHAT ram memory you have installed in Slot 1 and 2.
Give me any numbers off of the ram memory module that you see, and if there is a manufacturer name.

Same with the ram memory module you are trying to install.
Also would like to know if the two Foxconn mobos, (MOtherBOard), that I linked above, resemble yours.

Motherboard for compaq pcsr5109uk have upgraded to 1,5 GB this adding a 1 GB ram since doing this pc will not boot up,pc has said that the mother board has died this has only started since new ram have...


From what you have stated, the original ram memory was two sticks of 512MB.
It's PC2-5300
(DDR2 Sdram at 667MegaHertz)

When installing ram memory, and installing two sticks with one stick being larger, the larger stick of ram memory is installed in Slot 1.

This is the ram memory slot that is closest to the Processor.
(The Processor reads Slot 1 first)
On the motherboard it has DIMM 1 printed next to Slot 1.

The 1GB stick should go into Slot 1 (DIMM 1), and the 512MB stick should go into Slot 2 (DIMM 2)

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c01077654&tmp_task=prodinfoCategory&lc=en&dlc=en&cc=us&lang=en&product=3457899

Scroll down for the motherboard illustration, and photo.

Won't boot up with the original ram memory installed again?
1) What type, and size of 1GB ram memory did you install?

2) What ram memory slot did you install it in?

3) Did you follow anti-static precautions BEFORE you put your hands inside your computer, and BEFORE you took that ram memory stick out of it's protective anti-static bag?

[Your body carries Static electricity.
Static will fry out (Short Circuit) the hardware components inside a computer.

You may not even see it, or feel it.
Poof!
No computer.

Computer unplugged from power, computer on a table, computer case open, TOUCH the metal frame to relieve your body of Static.

{A couch, bed, or directly on a carpet floor are HIGH areas of Static]

Before you answer my questions try this;

If the two sticks of 512MB PC2-5300 are still installed, follow anti-static precautions, and remove them.

Take a pencil eraser, and clean the gold plated contact pins on the bottom of each ram module. (Stick)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Generic_DDR_Memory_%28Xytram%29.jpg

(The above example is DDR Sdram, not DDR2 Sdram. I posted the link so that the gold plated contacts are clearly shown.

DDR Sdram has 184 contact pins.
92 on each side.
DDR2 Sdram has 240 contact pins.
120 on each side)

Remove the eraser dust with air. Use a can of compressed air for computers, or air pressure from your mouth.

Reinstall the ram memory modules.

Computer unplugged from power, press the Power On button in.
Hold the button in for a count of Five seconds.
(Count 1001, 1002, 1003, 1004, 1005)

Let go of the Power On button.
Do this procedure two more times.

What you are doing is clearing CMOS Error Codes, and resetting BIOS back to the factory settings.

Plug the computer back into power.
WAIT 1 minute, then turn the computer on.

I await your findings, and answers to my questions.

I am trying to replace my motherboard with the exact same one but can't find what I need to order it. I've done searches but keep finding different answers.


From my searching I find that it is a Nvidia 520LE.

With much tact and diplomacy, I would like to 'talk' to you straight up.

That motherboard is junk.
The motherboard is just an ordinary, ATX form factor motherboard. The most common used form factor size, used in personal computers.
Uses the Nvidia nForce 4 chipset.

By the time you buy an exact replacement motherboard, you will have spent the same, or more, than you could spend for a much better motherboard. (That will fit! Only the I/O shield at the back of the computer, may not line up with the motherboard below. The motherboard does come with an I/O shield anyway)

I found from my recent search also this motherboard,
1.http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813135075&nm_mc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r&cm_mmc=OTC-pr1c3grabb3r-_-Motherboards+-+AMD-_-ECS+%28EliteGroup%29-_-13135075

$70 US.
Instead of the Socket 939 processor socket, or AM2 processor socket, you have now, you will have an AM2+ processor socket.
If your processor you have now, is an AM2 processor socket model, it will work on this motherboard.

Your ram memory won't work. You have DDR ram memory. This motherboard uses DDR2 at 800MHz. (Or also can use DDR2 at 1066MHz)
This = a PLUS!

You can buy 2GB's of DDR2 ram memory that operates at 800MegaHertz, for $30 at Tigerdirect. (Patriot Dual Channel-PC6400. It's two ->1GB sticks of dual channel capable ram)

Uses the AMD (Nvidia based) 780G Northbridge chip, and the AMD SB700 Southbridge chip.

Here are the specifications of this motherboard straight from ECS,

Computer will not work with extra 1gb ram


Hi,
It sound like you have incompatible memory. Try taking out the original 256 and test with the 1 gig. Keep in mind some PC requires memory to be paired. If you only have one, 1gig memory chip you might need to get another. I would try removing the 256 first. The specification of the motherboard would also tell you the memory usage.
Let me know if this helps!!
