PC Motherboard Memory upgrade

I own an ASUS P4B266 PC Motherboard that have a DDR 256Mb 133 MHz memory chipset, and I am adding DDR 256Mb 333MHz.
Can I do this?
Thanks in advance.

    Hi,



    ¡Thank you!



    I will have more memory size anyway, so I will install.



    The bus is 400 MHz, no problem with this, but about the PC1600 or PC2100 series exclusive compatibility I may think I read on th manual that PC3200 could work...I will be checking againg right away and will have more data on Saturday -as its the contact day I have with the vendor.



    Regards.

From Asus tech: Memory 3 184-pin DIMM slots for PC1600/PC2100 DDR SDRAM
Supports up to 2GB memory
No ECC supportThis is only compatible RAM so make sure your new chip is PC1600 or PC2100. If you mis the 2 it the faster RAM will run at the slower chip speed. Hope this helps.

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.

Hello,
*********** board will suport for 133 bus speed memory.Memory Size is not the matter,what ever you can install in the mother board,may be 128/256/512,but ensure the bus speed .It wont be more than 133 mhz.,then your mobo can not support.If you have SDR 133 bus speed ram you can install .
*********** board speed is 400 mhz,you can change 478 pin any intel processor,for better performence but the bus speed would be 400 mhz or bellow 400mhz,both will be suported.


For detail follow bellow the link.

I have ATXmodel intelceleron1.2Ghz cpu1.2 cache 256KB Intel 810E chipset motherboard can i upgrade my processor to pentium 4 and ram to 512mb


No, u can't. ur motherboard is designed for pentium III processors with FSB -133 MHz, Socket-370 type. Pentium 4 processors have 400 MHz FSB, 423 Socket at least. But yes for memory, u can upgrade it to 512 MB.

I wish to add RAM in the PC. Mine motherboard-Epox-EP-4BDA533(I). ID(identification)-05/09/2003-i845d-6A69VPA8C-00. On it costs RAM 256Mb -DDR PC2100 266Mg FSB-400Mg. How many Mb it is possible to add....



Manufacturer Specifications - EPoX EP-4BDA533I Number of Slots:
Slot 1
Slot 2
Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700,DDR PC3200 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.*
*Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory.
  • 184-pin DIMM Banking: 2 (2 banks of 1)
  • Chipset: Intel 845D
  • Error Detection Support: ECC and non-ECC
  • Graphics Support: AGP 4X
  • Max Component Density: 512Mb
  • Max Unbuffered DDR SDRAM: 2048MB
  • Module Types Supported: Unbuffered only
  • Supported DRAM Types: DDR SDRAM only
  • USB Support: 1.x Compliant
Q: What memory goes into my computer, and will a faster speed be backward-compatible?
A: DDR memory with support for DDR PC2700,DDR PC3200 speeds.
Because DDR memory is backward-compatible, you can safely upgrade your system with any of the guaranteed-compatible DDR speeds listed below, even if your manual calls for PC1600 or PC2100 speeds.
Q: How much memory can my computer handle?
A: 2048MB.
Adding the maximum amount of memory will improve performance and help extend the useful life of your system as you run increasingly demanding software applications in the future.
Q: Do I have to install matching pairs?
A: No.
No, you can install modules one at a time, and you can mix different densities of modules in your computer. But if your computer supports dual-channel memory configurations, you should install in identical pairs (preferably in kits) for optimal performance.
Q: Does my computer support dual-channel memory?
A: No.
Your system does not support dual channel.
Q: Does my computer support ECC memory?
A: Yes.
Your system supports ECC. You can put non-ECC modules into an ECC system, but be sure not to mix ECC and non-ECC modules within a system. Install the same type of modules that are already in your system.

Yes, it will work. Remember that all memory will operate at the speed of the slowest memory though so unless you're completely replacing the memory it won't increase the speed of the memory.

Adding memory to tx pro mainboard


You do not say what memory you are trying to install.

The ASUS P4S800D motherboard has four memory slots that hold DDR PC2700 or DDR PC3200 with a maximum of 1GB per slot, so the installed maximum is 4GB.

DDR memory is generally available in 128MB, 256MB, 512MB and 1GB modules. If you already have memory installed, it must be at least 128MB so you cannot add modules to 'bring memory to 128'.

Either you have a different motherboard and posted in the wrong section, your memory calculations are wrong, or you have used older PC-133,PC-100 or PC-66 memory instead of DDR. The last is unlikely as older SDRAM has two notches and won't physically fit into a DDR slot that only has one notch.

Please re-post with the specific motherboard model just to confirm and a list of the memory modules you are trying to use.
