Problems with Ram

I have had numerous problems with my system. I recently installed a new NF4UF8AA mboard with 4 sticks of kingston ram. After a fresh format and install of windows I was still experiencing sluggish performance, very slow install speeds from DVD drive and then hangs and then blue screen crashes. The only hardware connected is a new HD, ATI 1950 pro video card and DVD drive. I tried changing out dvd drives but no fix. I then removed all ram sims except one and suddenly the system started operating with no problems. I rotated individual ram sticks into the system one at a time and tested the performance (very crude benchmark...I timed how long it took to install Company of Heroes). With a single stick of RAM, the system was very responsive and installed COH in 5 minutes. After testing the ram individually and determining that it worked well alone, I then added a second stick (same brand and speed) into DIM1 (1st stick in DIM0) and rebooted. The system became sluggish again. I had already removed COH, tried to re-install with both sticks of ram. Crunched on the install for over 5 minutes with less than 10% completion. I repeated this entire process with a total of 4 sticks of RAM (2 pairs of matching brand and type). I am at a loss now...any help would be greatly appreciated!

Re: Problems with Ram

Hi, with my own Foxconn board I had simalar problems, the Foxconn website gave me the needed steps to rest the bios to cope with 4g RAM. I have forgotten the steps now. The web page is the one on the install disk, if you go to Foxconn via google you will only get a company promo. Regards mistyman

Hi, what RAM can I or can't I add on my GA-8I945PM ?

No, *********** board only supports DDR2 Ram thus the PC2 in your current RAM. Also the maximum capacity of your motherboard is 4gb. So if I were you I would recommend going to 4 1gb PC2-4200 modules. This would reduce latency as opposed to 2 2gb sticks. Also I recommend the 4200 rather than the 6400 or anything else as that is the optimal speed for your motherboard. Kingston is a good company to buy from, I am currently using 8 Kingston FB 2gb DDR3 sticks in my MAC Pro.

Can't install kvr800d2n6/2g x 4 on aw9d max

What you have purchased is Kingston VALUE RAM. It is budget-priced RAM for generic use. It works well in most cases. I was unable to find an actual 4x3 GB "Kit" on the Kingston site, although I found 2x2 Kits. The problem here may be in matching. The specs for RAM are fairly stringent, but they have variances, and the cheaper RAM is more likely to have such variances. I would try first installing each stick separately in the primary slot and confirming that each is detected. Next place one stick in DIMM 1 and one DIMM 3 slots. This puts one stick in each channel. Each channel operates independently so matching is not an issue. If that works, try adding one stick to one channel or the other. If it fails, swap it to the other channel. The idea is to try to get the sticks matched up as best as possible. Hopefully you will find a happy match-up. Also, check the memory voltage. These sticks operate at a standard 1.8V, but having four installed could be loading down the power supply some and you may need to manually bump the voltage up a tenth or two. Don't go over 2.0V though.

I have only 500 MB DDR II RAM attached to my k9vgm-v motherboard (Kingston, I think). I was going to buy a stick of 2GB DDR2 667 PC2-5300 HP/HYNIX 240pin RAM. I was wondering if this is compatible RAM as I...

Look at the label on your 512MB Ram stick. It should have the proper values noted. Then buy RAM that is the same except for MB. And be sure your computer can "see" the amount of RAM you want to install.
The RAM you plan to buy is for very new, powerful machines. It's a lot cheaper than the older RAM formats, but if your system is more than a year or two old, it will not work.

Trying to upgrade RAM on GA-945gzm-s2 mobo. Already have 1gb 5300 ddr2 stick of RAM. Works fine until I place the 2nd stick of RAM in. I turn it on and get no post beeps, no video, but everything is...

The new RAM module could be faulty or the second memory slot is faulty.
Try removing the original 1Gb memory module and inserting the new memory module in its place to see if the computer boots up normally. If it doesn't then then new memory module is faulty.

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?

Problems with Foxconn 6100K8MA-RS Motherboard memory upgrade

This is an oldtime POST code memory error. Likely that ram is either installed wrong, bad RAM or the mobo doesn't like one of the memory sticks.


You must count the beeps.

2 x 2GB Kingston CL5 detected as 1 GB each one

Ok, I got it, Ur motherboard supports upto 8GB DDRII Dual channel

Try using these RAMs on other slots of the board to check if there is a problem with RAM Slot (As there are four slots on ur board).

If no success, try using RAMs on some other system to confirm whether problem is with RAM or Motherboard.

Motherboard and ram..

DG965WH Board works well with 533 RAM, but is very finicky about 800, if you use 800, use only what is recomended.
I used kingston KVR533D2N4K2/2G with good luck on 4 motherboards.

You can try it, but watch for crashes and stabilty issues, if it has issues, remove it.
