Latest MB BIOS loaded - other BIOS settings to check?
2x512MB sticks are fine = 1G
2x1GB sticks = 1G in BIOS and Windows XP SP3

    MB accepts up to 2GB, 1GB per slot max per manual

    MB has DDR and DDR2 pairs of slots, but using DDR2 slots

    DDR up to 400, DDR2 up to 533

    Memory boots in POST at 533MHz, but only 1024MB

    i have same problem, im using ram reccomended by crucial.com.

    bios set up does not report memory type(i.e. ddr2, ddr) only speed.

    tried everything i can think off.

    It sounds like the board/bios is reading it as DDR instead of DDR2. This would mean it's only reading half of each stick. Check your bios setttings to make sure DDR2 is enabled.

I had similar problem with CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory

If this is your RAM:
Corsair 1024MB Value Select PC2-4200 (533MHz) DDR2 RAM, 128Mx64non-ECC, 240-pin DIMM, Unbuffered, CL4, Lifetime warranty (VS1GB533D2) Then it is high density. You need low density to work, look for one ending with an 8, not 64.

Sounds like the 2x1gb is double sided. I've had alot of trouble with pc chips and using more than 1 stick of double sided ram.

Use single sided ram, and you'll be problem free with PC Chips, some of the cheap MSI boards are the same way.

Pc Chips P23G wont reconize my new p4 core 2 duo


The PC Chips P23G versions 1.0A & 3.0 will not support any current generation Core2Duo, Core2Quad or Pentium Dual-Core processors. Only some of the first generation (Conroe Core) Core2Duo processors which run @ 1066mhz bus and some Pentium D (presler core) processors which run @ 800mhz bus.are supported. Not even most current BIOS will add support for any current processors. Check the pcchips website for CPU compatibility for the P23G..

I want to upgrade my HP BA 600 Mother Board`s RAM Capacity


Hello,
Most likely your MB is too old for this upgrade although there is a chance you could flash your bios (reprogram your computer's brain to accept the new memory providing hp has a flash for it).
here is a link for the latest bios flash for your computer, use at your own risk.

good luck.
Thank you,

Ram DDR2


Hi Terry, you're board, PC Chips P23G only supports a max memory of 2GB. Please check pg. 9 of your manual, Installing Memory Modules.
Please be noted you can NOT use DIMM DDRII 1~2 (DDR2 533/400) and DIMM DDR1~2 (DDR 400/333) simultaneously. Only use either DDR2(533/400) or DDR(400/333) memory modules! (You should check the spec's of the other board before inserting memory that may not be supported). (You can damage the memory)
Click the link listed below for you're PC Chips P23G board.
Suggest you save this link to you're favorites.
http://www.pcchips.com.tw/PCCWeb/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?MenuID=92&LanID=2&DetailID=387&DetailName=BIOS

You will notice there is a fix for:
Patch code to fix REALTEK clock buffer sometimes couldn't detect DDR2.
Once there, click BIOS. Scrol down to the bottom of the page & read special notes. Than click the drop down menu & pick a download site. Creat a folder on you're desktop to store the download. Uncompress the .zip file. You will than have a folder named 070115 & a ROM file named 070115.ROM
This bios flash program requires you to use a floppy disk drive to flash the bios.
Follow the instruction at this link to flash you're bios.

If you find to hard to folow you can pick another from this google search site.

The p23g V1.0 motherboard doesn't support the core duo processor. Do not try to install it or you may damage either the board or the processor.

 

The p23g V3.0 support also the core duo processor

 

Follow this link and you can see for each motherboard the different processor used.

My suggestion is that you use the p29g
