Question about MSI 6714 i845GL Chipset 400/533FSB Motherboard with Video, Audio, and LAN (MBSK4786714GL)
I have an eMachine desktop/tower 3230. It says in the MBoard booklet that it takes 2 sticks of ram of 1GB each. The original ram was just half a GB. I purchased 2 sticks and the suppliers `read` my pc and confirmed the type I needed - I know I have the right RAM. But it keeps cutting out. It is ok and doesnt cut out with just one stick. The supplier said I need to upgrade the bios - but I can`t find a site that upgrades the Bios for Ram capacity ...
Hello visit emachine here:
And select your pc model by number.
Remember to select the right model, because flashing the bios with a wrong one will destroy the mainboard.
I have newer heard that a bios upgrade was necessary to upgrade the ram.
Some mainboards do have a limit of 2gb ram, and the bios upgrade does nothing to that.
Try to clean the pc out for dust, and renew the the cooling paste between the cpu and the cooling element.
One of the ram modules could have a defect.
Try to test one module at the time.
If you get the blue screen of death, the problem is elsewhere like power supply, or harddrive.

I thought this board looked familiar to me. I recall some rules for the memory cards. Do all your memory cards meet this requirement:
Supports up to 3GB PC1600/2100/2700/3200* DDR SDRAMs
If you are using DDR 400 you can only use 1 slot.
What kind of memory are you using?
