Question about ASUS P5GL-MX Motherboard
I have a P5GL-MX motherboard and have a 512 DDR400(3) memory on it . I recently purchased a 1Gb DDR400(3) from the same manufacturer Dynet DDR 400(3) 1GX16 and after installing it .. I face some of the following issues :
When I place both the RAM :
- It boots but I do not get any display. I have tried reseating the RAM but it works at times.
When I place only the 1GB RAM :
- It detects the PCI video card and then goes blank
I have tried to swap slots , clean the RAM slot and the RAM but no luck.
Do I have to replace the the 1GB RAM or is not good to put both a 512 and a 1GB RAM together ?
Kindly advice ,
Some motherboards require that you install the memory in matched pairs. That could explain why they won't work together.
When you put the 1 GB in alone, what slot did you put it in?
I would suggest the blue A1 slot (closest to the CPU).
It may be that you have a bad memory module.
You could try the Windows Memory Diagnostic:
