Question about MSI KM4M-V SOCKET-A WITH VIA KM400 CHIPSET (KM4MV7061020) Motherboard

1 Answer

Memory upgrade I have a KM4M motherboard. I can't tell whether it's a LM4M-L or V or whatever just KM4M. I currently have one 512MB memory module in use. It is marked DDR333 64X64 on a paper label. I would like to upgrade to 2GB (1GB module in each slot). I see lots of discussion on low/high density. I don't understand it fully. Am I limited to using certain memory modules/manufacturers on this system? Thank you.

Yes you are
take your information to your pc shop and explain what you want to do.
They will then direct you in what type of memory and how much memory your system can take.
( A smaller pc repair shop will give you better advice and a better price then a major shop.)

I have intel d845gvs1 motherboard with P4 2.4 ghz, Currently have 2 ram (512mb & 256 mb) how much further can i upgrade the ram, 1GB or 2GB also is the current combination of ram is right?


"Supports up to 2 GB of system memory with DIMMs utilizing 512 Mbit
technology DRAM devices"-intel

you can use 2 sticks of 1 gig apiece to get to 2 gigs of total memory, but you have to make sure that the ram sticks use "512Mbit " technology.

the 512Mbit technology refers to the arrangement of memory chips on the ram cards. a card which uses 64Mx8 (8 seperate memory chips of 64M apiece) would be appropriate.

"Nearly all motherboards only recognize 1 GB modules if they are low density 64M×8 modules. If high density 128M×4 1 GB modules are used, they most likely will not work."-wikipedia"

I have a MSI KM4M-L motherboard and it will not accept any other memory than the 512mb strip that is in at the moment, and this it reads as a different size. It has a Duron 850 processor.


Usually this is a BIOS problem.
Go to the MSI website and make sure you got the latest BIOS for the board, and upgrade it if you need too.

While there, download the operating manual (usually a PDF file) and look where it tells you what kind of memory is compatible with it.
You might have to put memory in slots in a certain order.
I.E. Memory in slots 0 and 2 first.
And, or, in particular on older boards the memory might have to be the same size sticks, etc.

If I unstall DDR400 memory as as follows: DDR1 & DDR3 : 512MB each DDR2 & DDR4 : 256MB each making 1.5 GB in total, will dual channel technology be activated?


Definitely not. Dual channel technology requires that the 2 RAM modules installed in each bank be of the same capacity, data rate, & even better be from the same manufacturer.

Asrock K7VM2 Motherboard Memory Upgrade


Some MOBO support different type of memory modules like ddr 400, 333,533 and other, if your computer is working fine with that PC400 it only means that your MOBO is compatible with it. Since you're planning to upgrade the memory just get another PC400 because the memory should be the same to work fine.

KM4M-L and graphics cards/memory queries


I would hate to burst the bubble but if you buy any DDR2 memory, then you will be wasting your money.
This motherboard only supports standard DDR upto 333mhz and only 2gig max of that.

Video card wise, then an ATI 9800 Pro can be had cheaply or an nVidia 6800 AGP version can be purchased new.

Hope it helps =)
