ECS 915-A(1.1) Ram Reading Issues

Hello, I've decided I want to upgrade my desktop with more ram. I purchased a 2 gig set of ram( Kingston DDR2 533) which is suppose to be compatible with my mobo. I currently have 2x 512( CORSAIR/VALUE SELECT DDR 400) ram running with this machine with no problems i believe. Now, when i decide to swap out the ram with the new one(i.e Taking out DDR 400 to put in DDR2 533), the ram fits, like how its suppose to... but when i start my comp, it just stays as a black screen..., I hope i can get some ideas... cause i really have no clue, i assume I have to update bios for it to pick up the ram, but i dont know, and I hope to hear some ideas.

*A few things about my mobo that should(or help) be noted
It has 4 ram slots, 2 meant for ddr, the other two meant for ddr2
Cant have both running at the same time

    im running an ECS915-A mobo Chipset Intel 915P/915G
    I dont believe I caused a static charge... whether the case i was grounded or not, I handled the same ram that is working in my machine currently right after (DDR 400 2x512)
    i am "trying" to run dual channel of 2x 1gig ddr2 533(which means two 1 gig sticks)

Is it a single ram module or dual ie. 2x 1gig ddr2 533?
What motherboard are you running?
Is it possible that you've given a static charge out while handling the ram?

    It might seem silly but dust is a common cause of this, take out the ram, wipe it with a dry cloth and blow out the memory slots on the motherboard. If that doesn't work try removing the CMOS battery for a few minutes.

Crashes from DDR 1 ram over 2 gigs and all usb devices.


Hello from here you can download a manual:

http://www.ecs.com.tw/ECSWebSite/Product/Product_Detail.aspx?CategoryID=1&DetailID=544&DetailName=Feature&MenuID=24&LanID=0

It supports:

Dual channel DDR memory architecture
DDR400/333/266 DDR SDRAM
4 x 184-pin DDR SDRAM DIMM socket support up to 4 GB

One of the ram modules could have a defect
Try insert one at the time.
You must have a windows 64 bit system to use more than 3 Gb
Try to update the mainboard drivers
The one for the chipset
The ram slots probably not take modules bigger than 1 Gb
There is too types of ram Ecc and non Ecc.
Ecc ram does not work on this mainboard.


Good luck

If you are a "gamer" and you have 1GB of RAM, and you have Windows XP, you probably need more RAM.
If you are a "gamer" and you have 1GB of RAM, and you have Windows Vista or Windows 7, you DEFINITELY need more RAM.

Some motherboards support "dual-channel" mode, when you have 2 or 4 _IDENTICAL_ sticks of RAM. What happens is that each byte written to the RAM is "split" into 2 halves; one half is written to the 'A' stick of RAM, while, simultaneously, the other half is written to the 'B' stick of RAM. Obviously, this takes 4 "cycles" of the RAM, rather than taking 8 "cycles", if there was only one stick of RAM. So, your RAM seems to run at "double-speed".

So, when you buy more RAM, either try very hard to "match" your current 1GB stick of RAM, or purchase a "2GB dual-channel kit", or two "2GB dual-channel kits", to upgrade to 2GB (or 4GB) of RAM.

Im not sure how much ram to use with my motherboard.


Your board can support 4Gb of RAM.

CLICK HERE for the SPEC sheet.

HERE is the memory support list, there is only 1 type of KINGSTON 2GB stick that is listed as compatible.

Make sure you have the latest BIOS as there are some known issues with this board and certain 4GB RAM configs as well as fixes for 1TB HDD space errors.

Always a good idea to make sure you have the latest XP service pack. In general, XP only recognises 3Gb RAM but mine runs fine with 4 in it.

When you crash, is there any Blue Screen of Death (BSoD) or any other output to your monitor or does it just shut down with no warning or error code or anything? If this is happening then you may be getting a CPU OVERTEMP condition.

Have you recently upgraded other components as well as your RAM?

Memory problems


Hi,
If you are sure your motherboard can handle a 1 GB RAM stick, then the general answer is that the motherboard can not run High Density RAM stick as yours is possibly. You might need to exchange it for a stick of Low Density RAM.

According to some quick research, it says your motherboard can only read up to 2 GB TOTAL of RAM even if you have more installed.
