Hi,
Well, according to your manual, Long beeps in a endless loop mean no DRAM was installed or detected. What type of RAM are you using? The problem is with your RAM only. if the frequency of your RAM doesn't matches your motharboard then it will not work. The frequency of RAM varies from 233MHz, 333MHz, 400MHz, 667MHz, 800MHz, 1033MHz etc.. and also it varies from motherboard to motherboard.

Thank you.....

I have this ASUS P4GE-MX Motherboard. I want to upgrade my ram from DDR 256 MB TO DDR 1 GB. For temporary purpose, I tried another 256 DDR ram with 400 MHZ, but I had some problem with booting my system....


Hello, The Motherboard's specifications mention that it uses DDR Ram, while the FSB runs at 400MHz. That means that any kind of DDR memory will work up to the maximum of 2 GB (it has 2 slots, so it's up to the max of 2x1GB DDR sticks).
There's no issue with the speed, actually the faster you can get the better results you will have. Try looking for 1GB DDR 400MHz (preferably two of them, if you want to max out the capacity and since it's kind of cheap to do so).
The one you tried and didn't work, might be due to a faulty RAM module.

I have an asus k8v-mx motherboard running only 512 mb of ram what type of ram would suit this mother board and could i fit a 1 x 2mb ram instead of 2 x 1mb?


Dear Sir,

*********** board is Asus old p4 Mother board.It supports maximum 1GB RAM of DDR 400(DDR1). According to your post your computer having only one 512 MB working RAM. If you want good purformance you can upgrade your computer by purchasing another 512MB DDR400 RAM and install it on another RAM slot.If your computer have only one working RAM slot,you can purchase 1GB DDR400 RAM & install it on older RAM place. I think it solves your problem.if you have any problem come back with more information. I will try to assist you more accurately.

good luck

P4VXASD-R VIA Apollo P4X266-new 1G DDR gets 3 beeps


Well you said you used 256+128 and thats lower than 1gb. So try sticking in one of the stick and run it, see how it is. Then try the other, if both are working fine by themself then try cleaning your board with a nonscrathing cloth (or q-tip).

Lastly, just double check if your motherboard runs that kingston type, the pc2100.

As for your memory goes, os 2k can run up to 4gb of ram.

Longer Boot time after upgrading the Hard drive


Hi,

first let's determine if the upgrade cause the boot speed.

Disconnect your NEW HDD and/or memory, one by one and see if you get back your fast boot. Then try with your NEW components only !

If you find it works better with new components only, then first connect your OLD HDD only and try.

If you connect both HDDs on one cable, check Jumper settings for both HDDs (Master/Slave).

Also HDD capacity and type is automatically detected by the BIOS and there is no need to put/change those settings manually.

I believe you new RAM is DDR type, too!
As written in the manual for the board, your motherboard has two pairs of memory slots, and you can use one or two modules of DDR memory, OR one or two modules of SDRAM memory, but you can NOT put BOTH DDR and SDRAM memory modules.

regards.
