Will it actually recognise 2GB of ram? That could be your problem. Mine will only recognise 1.5GB. If I put in 2GB, it causes problems. More isn't always better.

    Put in what you know will work. Probably at most 1GB. If you can get up and running, go to belarc.com and run the program. It will tell you everything you need to know about your computer. It will also tll you how much RAM your system is able to use.

    If you are installing too much RAM, it won't work. The computer will try to use what it can't. It's like scooping a full cup of chocolate mix to make 1 glass of drink. You have to keep trying & trying a little bit at a time. That's what the computer is doing.

Foxconn G31MV board problem. Have 4gb of Ram and a 2.6 Duo core, have just installed a EVGA Geforce 210 1gb into the pcie slot and WIndows wouldnt start up. It went strait to repair or start normally...


The motherboard should support 4gb of ram. Was the computer working before the installation of the video card. This motherboard has integrated graphics on it, this means when you install a new graphics card you have to enable it in the bios(and disable the integrated graphics) the instructions should have come with the card as well as the installation drivers. Normally before you pop the video card in you should setup windows and install the drivers then when they are installed you put the video card in the slot.

If you are installing the ram for the first time you should check if the system recognizes the memory be going into the bios settings and looking at system memory if not I would recommend re-installing the ram.

RAM MEMORY WONT INSTALL/DOES NOT WORK


It sounds like the RAM you ordered is defective.
I would put the your old ram in and verify that the system boots and operates properly. If it does, then I would send the RAM in for replacement.

I hope this helps,

Thanks for using FixYa,

Pc boots and stays on the black screen at the start


Try getting into the BIOS and making sure that it is detecting the RAM and HDD and Processor. Typically this happens when theres no memory or a memory problem. If its the Hard drive it will say NTLDR missing or Hard Drive failure. When its blank.

Does the Hard drive fire up when its sitting there? Does it seem like it booting the Hard drive or does it just sit there.

Also, if you have an onboard Video and a video card, try using just the onboard video for now, sometimes the Video card can cause an issue if it doesnt have drivers and comes up blank.

Make sure the bios has the video set to PCI or AGP depending which you have intstall. Or Auto if it has it.

I have had two Gigabyte board and im using one now and have had similar issues that where caused by a ATI video card.

Good luck and let me know if you still need help.

System failed to boot when installing additional 2X 1GB RAMs.


you need to place them on your motherboard where the memory is installed. Place in the order of one new, one old, one new, one old stick. that way they run in dual channel.

New RAM, computer stays on intel screen and occasionally continually beeps


Hi DeezKelb, The continous beeps you are hearing is the Award bios telling you the memory is not seated correctly. Please remove the memory & re-seat the two DIMMS.
See Award bios beep codes, click on this link.
http://www.bioscentral.com/beepcodes/awardbeep.htm

If the beeping continues. Either boot into the bios & reset from there or reset the bios by moving cmos/bios jumper page 1-16 in you're user manual to clear/reset the bios. (Remember to set the jumper back to default). Boot the PC & enter bios to setup you're prefered settings.
If you're board still continues to beep download a free program called Memest86 & run the software which will test you're memory. http://www.memtest.org/ Scroll down the page till you are under the three Screenshots. Listed there is ** Memtest86+ V2.01 (21/02/2008) ** typed in red.
You have a choice of downloading software to creat either a bootable floppy disk or a bootable CD disk.
.
Bootable floppy; Download - Pre-Compiled package for Floppy (DOS - Win)

Bootable CD; Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)
You're Asus board can only run up to 2GB Max memory.
Main download web site for ASUS P4V8X-X.

Good Luck!

hi

is this your motherboard? http://shop.pcmag.com/shop/product_specs/Intel+D915GAG+BLKD915GAGL10+Motherboard/22673983.aspx

if so, it is ok for you to upgrade your memory up to 2gb. btw, just be sure to properly install the rams to the slots.

since youve purchased 2 x 1Gb ddr400 , put on color blue slots.

hope this helps

Ram issue


you may have to check the speeds of the memory as some boards only take a certain speed after 2GB of ram, forcinh you to use different speed sticks, or look for the cmos clear terminals and clear the cmos settings and restart
