What is the max size of ddr400 memory you can fit into ddr1 & ddr2 dimm slots on a p4vm8 mother board


1) Total maximum amount for motherboard is 2GB.

2) There are 2 Ram Memory slots.

3) Maximum amount for EACH ram memory slot is 1GB.

Either DDR Sdram at 266MegaHertz, or 333MHz, or 400MHz.
PC2100, PC2700, and PC3200, respectively.

http://www.asrock.com/mb/VIA/P4VM8/

There is no DDR1 and DDR2 slots, in a manner of speaking.

May be marked on your motherboard that way, but stating it that way on a computer product support website = No.

You're going to make someone think, you don't know what you are talking about.

They may think you are referring to DDR Sdram, and DDR2 Sdram, and they know the motherboard only uses DDR Sdram ram memory.

Suggest state Slot 1 and Slot 2; or DIMM 1 and DIMM 2.

A7v8x-mx 2GB (2x 1GB) don't recognize


Sounds like you have run into a compatibility problem between your RAM and motherboard. These kinds of problems have been very common and that is why most motherboards have a supported memory list. Usually if the RAM does not work properly you can try reversing the slots that they are plugged into and make sure that your motherboard is set for the proper voltage and speed for the RAM. If it still does not work then you would most likely need either different RAM or a different motherboard.

How to install 2gb RAM ? I currently have 512.


Your board has three 164 pin DIMM slots and will accept 1 GB modules (at the largest) in each slot (Max 3 GB).

Look for PC133 164 pin DIMM modules and consult your manual for correct configuration. A 1 GB module in the first and second slot would give you 2 GB of RAM.

# of RAM slots


There are two models for this type of desktop, the first having only two DIMM slots, but that takes PC2700 Ram, you have stated that yours takes PC3200 which would make it the second model in which case your model has (4) DIMM slots, each slot is capable of holding a 1 GB stick of ram for a total of 4 GB. Your RAM specification is DDR PC-3200

A7s333 motherboard with 3 dimm ram slots 2 x 1GB pc2700


That board type does not show on the ASUS web site. I think that your problem may be incompatibility of the RAM with the board specs. Placing faster RAM on the board will not make it go faster.

DG965RY board can not reboot with 'restart' button on windows Xp


Run with only two RAMS each in one of the DIMM slots. Three RAMS may not work unless supported by mobo or being exactly identical in their specs..

Memory banks 1 & 2 are where your computer looks for RAM. If nothing is installed in them then the computer looks no further. You can upgrade RAM by putting 2 more sticks in the unused banks as long as they are compatible to the board and first 2 sticks. It makes no sense to buy faster than the first 2 as the cpu would make them run at the lowest speed of all installed RAM. If you are using an asus board then when you boot up you should be able to press the del key to enter bios setup. Video cards are more to preference. If you have the psu & board capabilities then the sky is the limit. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

Memory


Ok well there could be a few things going on here. It is possible that A: your third stick is damaged which I'm assuming you dismissed through your installation of one at a time, B: the third dimm slot is damaged and is unusable, C: the dimm slot is turned off in your bios. 

Now looking at the Shuttle A161 motherboard it would appear you have a primary dimm slot and then expansion dimm slots (technically these are called the controller dimm slot and the estensions) 

The controller slot which is offeset from the other two should have your largest ram, make sure the ram you stick in this slot isn't a stick that requires dual recognition. Some ram is designed to work in a pair even in the early PC100 class ram. Most PC100 ram you'll find now requires the sticks to work in pairs and the ram is coded for this. (Especially since PC100 is on its way out very fast.) The expansion slots can be fitted with a pair that will work together. I doubt that your third and primary slot is turned off as it is the controller slot. If none of your ram works in this slot replace the old ram in to this slot and just use the two expansion slots. It may not be as much ram as you want but the motherboard has presets that are just problematic. 

My general advice however is, that if you're running this motherboard which is fairly out of date, I'd upgrade to a new computer. Buying a cheap Dell desktop or even a barebones off of newegg.com and transfering your current Harddrive and what not over would probably be easier for you and will carry you for the next five years or so.

Possibly an overheating problem...


Very rarely motherboard can cause burn to RAM unless most likely the RMA quality itself had the relibility issue... change the RAM unless the burn is very severe.. you may need to change the DIMM connectors (if you have the right tools) like HOt air machine..
