Different brand of RAM used problem

Is it ok to use different brand of RAM on the same PC? I was using "eRAM" and added "Kingston", but it does not seem to work! There are both DDR400 PC3200, 184 Pin DIMM RAM. Is there any known problem for Matsonic MB with Kingston RAM?

Re: Different brand of RAM used problem

Unfortunately not all ram, even if its the same speed, works on all motherboards. my suggestion is to see which one works by itself by putting just one of the modules in. then get a matching one of the one that works. if they both work individually, then i would go with the kingston, it is the better RAM. hope this helps.

First verify that you are using the proper speed of RAM. Second, check the BIOS and make sure that recognizes the RAM you have installed. Sometimes you have to manually set the RAM size in the BIOS in order to get it to work. Finally, I have had several issues with Kingston RAM on different motherboards even when it is the proper type so you would want to try a different manufacturer.

Yes it could be a video/motherboard problem.
1st Install a different RAM module because the RAM may be faullty and the on-board video card uses part of the RAM (shared memory).
If this works then the RAM is either faulty or incompatible.
2nd. Try installing a video card in the AGP expansion slot.

Hello! i need you help respectly to Kingston Box Cl5 & Kingston ddr 2 800MHZ The best is? what difference do exist? thanks and sorry my bad english!

If you need RAM, and you do not intend to OVERCLOCK or use the PC with lots of programs running at the same time, cheap and cheerfull RAM will be ok, I would advise to buy from a Good manufacturer, but the budget or value Ram will be fine.
The more expensive RAM with tighter timings, and higher speed ratings will work faster in the right circumstances, but for most people, it will be a waste of money.
Buy the best you can afford

Problem with ram

To determine if the new RAM module is faulty, remove both RAM modues and then insert only the new RAM module in the motherboard and see if it boots up.
If it boots up then there the RAM modules are incompatible with each other. Are you sure they are identical?
Take it back to the supplier and get a different one.

Why MIS P4M900M3 couldn't support 1GB ,2GB RAM when they are together?

You can't use two different size at a time, they must be of same size. If you will use two sims both of 2G then it will work, either you can use both of 1G.

There is no problem no your motherboard niether in SIMs.
