Here is the download  ASER support website for your model desktop.    My guess is that  the BIos was not written to see more than one GB per slot. Download a manual to confirm.

Asus f3j bios mod for upgraded ram


Not sure what you are asking about. Asus site says the motherboard will take DDR2 533/667MHz SDRAM, 2x SO-DIMM socket expandable to 2GB
Which means DDR2 533mhz 1 gig per slot total 2gig
or DDR2 667mhz 1 gig per slot total 2 gig

To enter BIOs press F2 at boot up, but no setting should need to be changed.

They do not have a BIOs update for increasing the memory limits.
BIOs upgrades from first to current are.
BIOS 304
Update new CPU Microcode
System plays wave file and causes garbage sound.
BIOS 305
To fix system cannot do battery pre-charge process when an unknown/failure battery insert.

I change the memory banks (from 256 meg 533 Mhz X 2 to 1024meg X 2) and the bios just see the first bank. I flash the bios with the latest file but the issue are the same. Is there something to verify or...


Did you check and make sure it can handle more than a gig of memory? Does it have 4 banks? A lot of newer motherboards need to have memory paired in the banks.

Can Dell Dimension 8400 intel celeron work with 3 gig ram


Yes it can but try to match up at least two, to gain the advantage of dual channel and when you buy your extra ram, check that it matches the other two that you have in size, speed and technology (like 3x1G DDR2 same speed). Also you may have to play with which slot to put the third one but I had this one run with three modules before yes.

Otherwise your Dell Dimension 8400 can see upto a maximum of 4.0 GB memory, with maximum of 1GB per slot in 4 (2 banks of 2) memory slots.

How do I overclock a Celeron 733mHz PGA370?


You can only overclock your computer if it has ATAPI BIOS. So get into BIOS upon bootup and if you have ATAPI then it will say it across the top. It will also have a section for the CPU with the current speed and an option to change it.

RAM problem


Hello, if you have an intel m processor for your sony then u are somewaht out of luck. the base memory is 256 megs and it is not in the motherboard but rather integrated in one of the slots itself, that means if u put a 512 mb chip into that certain slot it will only read 256. a lot of people are mislead into thinking they can put two 512s and get a gig of memory, but not true, at least not with most of the sony intel processors. find the base slot by switching chips around, then leave the 256mb chip there. then u can add a 512mb to the expandable slot and get over 700bytes. if u can find a 1gb compatible stick,then try that the same way, leave the original hynix base slot chip in and add the 1gb, if u can find one, then u will have a little over 1280 of which u can up the video graphic usage up to 128 in the bios, and have your 1gb in memory. if u find a 1gb memory chip that work,drop a line as to what brand and size u used

Hi Terry, you're board, PC Chips P23G only supports a max memory of 2GB. Please check pg. 9 of your manual, Installing Memory Modules.
Please be noted you can NOT use DIMM DDRII 1~2 (DDR2 533/400) and DIMM DDR1~2 (DDR 400/333) simultaneously. Only use either DDR2(533/400) or DDR(400/333) memory modules! (You should check the spec's of the other board before inserting memory that may not be supported). (You can damage the memory)
Click the link listed below for you're PC Chips P23G board.
Suggest you save this link to you're favorites.
http://www.pcchips.com.tw/PCCWeb/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?MenuID=92&LanID=2&DetailID=387&DetailName=BIOS

You will notice there is a fix for:
Patch code to fix REALTEK clock buffer sometimes couldn't detect DDR2.
Once there, click BIOS. Scrol down to the bottom of the page & read special notes. Than click the drop down menu & pick a download site. Creat a folder on you're desktop to store the download. Uncompress the .zip file. You will than have a folder named 070115 & a ROM file named 070115.ROM
This bios flash program requires you to use a floppy disk drive to flash the bios.
Follow the instruction at this link to flash you're bios.

If you find to hard to folow you can pick another from this google search site.
