1 Answer

I really need help!

I have a 2400+ Sempron processor, Asrock K7VT4A-Pro Motherboard, 1x 256 MB RAM Kingmax, 1X 512 MB Ram Kingmax ( 768 totally) A 80 GB HDD IDE Maxtor, A 7300 GT TDH form LEADTEK. The problem is: I bought a new DVD-RW from LG but not on IDE but on SATA (since the motherboard has SATA) and from that point all hell is breaking loose. After 2 computer restarts the DVD didn't read the discs anymore. I took the dvd out but the computer is gone wild! my mouse cursor doesn't always appear and after a few minutes it freezes!

Re: I really need help!

Draxxer, Got another mouse you can try. Another thing you should to is get online on another computer (of course), find and download the floppy version of Memtest86+ (not memtest86), unzip it and get it started. It will produce a bootable memory test diskette. If you don't have a floppy drive, download the .iso version of the program and burn the .iso to a CD via Nero (or whatever you have). The diskette or the CD cannot be read by Windows, so don't even try. Simply boot up the problem computer using the diskette/cd and it will automatically check for memory problems. If you see ANYTHING in Red, then you have a RAM problem. Let me know what happens. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"

A im trying to start a pc but my monitor is not startin.Asrock K7VT4A-Pro Motherboard . led red is on and my grafic card is ok

Hi, you can download a manual here: PRO

Here you also find drivers.

You may have to unzip the file before installation.
Do you use the right type of ram ??
The ram module could have a defect.
Have you insertet the cpu properly ??
You can maybe try with another AGP graphic card.
Or the card is not insertet in the slot properly.

Remove the graphic card and try to clean the contact points
on the card with a piece of paper.
I guess its just a bad connection or the card is defect.

You can read all about that red led in the manual.

Ram 256 MB but show 128 MB pls send solution

If you have an existing 128Mb RAM module and inserted another 128Mb to give you a total of 256Mb and it stills shows 128Mb. Then the second RAM module may not be compatible or the second RAM module is faulty.
Try and use the same make and type RAM module as the original or insert a 512Mb RAM module instead of two 128Mb RAM modules. There is not much price gap between 512 and 256 Mb RAM.

I have compaq presario 5000 series...and iwant upgrade my ram ...i have 128+128 sd ram so how much i upgrade my ram...can i upgrade 512+512 sd ram OR 256+256 sd ram...thank you

the RAM upgrade will depend on ur motherboard capacity and specification.
u need to check ur MB manual
if ur MB can have only SD RAM then only SD RAM upgrade is possible...DDR will not work....
so be careful while buying ur RAM

intelD845GLLy MB...the following details are from the intel website

System Memory Features
The D845GLLY board provide the following memory features:
  • Two DIMM sockets supporting 3.3 V (only) 168-pin 133 MHz Single Data Rate (SDR) SDRAM DIMMs with gold-plated contacts
  • Unbuffered non-ECC DIMMs only
  • Maximum total system memory: 2 GB; minimum total system memory: 64 MB
  • Serial Presence Detect (SPD) DIMMs only
  • Suspend to RAM
Caution Do not use ECC DIMMs with the Desktop Board. Using ECC DIMMs could damage the Desktop Board.
Integrator's Notes:
  • Registered DIMMs are not supported on the Desktop Board.
  • This Desktop Board has been designed to support DIMMs based on 512 Mbit technology for a maximum onboard capacity of up to 2 GB, but this technology has not been validated on this board.

Note To be fully compliant with all applicable PCI33 SDRAM memory specifications, the board should be populated with DIMMs that support the Serial Presence Detect (SPD) data structure. This allows the BIOS to read the SPD data and program the chipset to accurately configure memory settings for optimum performance.
hope this helps

I have a L7VMM2 - Rev 2 motherboard with a Athlon 2400 processor. I have replaced the 2 x 256 Mb ram chips (PC2100) with 2 x 1Gb PC2700 chips. Total memory is reported as 1Gb (i.e. 2 x 512). I am (almost)...

Have you checked the posibility of 512 Mb limit per slot for your motherboard? This is often at some older mobos. The manufacture page for your mobo is here check the revision you own.

RAM cuantity

The motherboard you mentioned supports DDR1 RAM.

For windows xp and general application 512 MB is enough.
But if you use memory intensive applications like image/video editing then you can opt for 1-2 GB RAM.
