    Both sticks are KVR400X64C3A/1G. Both are Kingston Computer wil run fine with one stick, either one, but not both. Did the X 86 memory test.. Stick "A" passes in both slot 0 and slot 1, Stick "B:" passes in both slot 0 and slot 1, but X 86 memory test fails with both sticks are installed. It's got me baffled, unless its a mother board problem. Do you reckon one stick of 2 gig would work??? Thanks....

  • murrellv Apr 21, 2009

    I did the cpu_z and both stick are identical, except for the mfg date, and serial number EXCEPT the older stick has 3 frequency charts listed under the SPD tab....133MHz, 166 MHz, and 200 MHz, and the newer stick only has 166 MHZ and 200 MHz tables. Other than this, both sticks read out the same info... I used the same slot on the motherboard for each chip. Any more ideas????

  • murrellv Apr 21, 2009

    Yes, Bios recognizes 4 gig. Both stick read 1024 MBytes, PC3200(200MHz). Both are Kingston..All else is the same except mfg date and serial #.....

    Actually, I am not sure that I Don't have the GXMG ... Don't know if I still have the box or not... manual is for both models. Would it be on the board itself?????

  • murrellv Apr 21, 2009

    I get back to the fact that either stick will run by itself OK, but not together. Would this problem appear if I do indeed have the GXMG model??

  • murrellv Apr 21, 2009

    I'm gonna go out in the garage to see if I still have the box the board came in....

  • murrellv Apr 21, 2009

    Believe it ot not... I found the box.. it is a k7s741GXMG-6L...Support DDR266/333MHz memory.. Support AMD Athlon TM XP.. Socket 462FSB 333 processor.. that the label on the box.. now wha????

  • murrellv Apr 21, 2009

    Is there some parameter in the bios that I could change to make both sticks work together??

  • murrellv Apr 21, 2009

    ****, I gotta take grandchild to t ball practice.. I'll check the board when I get back to see if you have any info or ideas... Thanks for your help so far....

    I have this issue mine came with 512mb PC3200. Wanted to max out at 2 GB manual says exactly that. Also running memory test on Crucial.com finds 4 slots with 3 empty???

    Since your board does not support the speed of RAM you have installed try installing PC2700 or slower. That should fix your problem. If your BIOS allows you to adjust the speed, try forcing a slower speed.

    No, I don't think one stick of 2GB will work because your motherboard manual states that the largest stick that will work is 512 MB. Run CPU-Z and see if both sticks are really identical. When you have both sticks installed do they show correctly in the BIOS? Are you sure you don't have the K7S741GXMG, which does not support that speed of memory?

  • Dick
    Dick May 11, 2010

    When you say "identical" what exactly do you mean? Your manual says "Supports 64/128/256/512 Mb technology up to 2 GB" which does not even make sense since 2x512MB is only 1GB, not 2GB. Have you used CPU-Z and checked exactly what memory is detected with each stick to see if they are really identical?

Add memory to IBM ThinkCentre S50


I have found your specifications as well as a place to purchase the memory at a cheap price that will work for your machine. "Standard Memory" max amount you can install is 2 gigs. I would if it were me 2 1 gig sticks to equal the max amount. Go here to this site to see the price is great as well. Tick Here
Hope this assisted you. John

Hi there,, can i put one stick of two gig in plus one stick of one gig in,,or has the memory have to be in equal pieces,,,:ie. two twos two ones thanks george dell m90


Its usually a good idea to get equal sticks. Also make sure you know how much ram your motherboard can recognize.
Any other questions feel free to ask.

Once you installed the memory, did you enter into the System BIOS Setup screen? Do this and verify that the system recognizes the newly installed 2GB RAM. This should let the system access the new memory once you boot.

ECS PT800CE-A 3.4 P4 HT CPU and DDR400 (PC3200) problems


I seem to be unable to find any information about what an ERAND error even is. No one is really identifying it on the net. One thing you may try though is to find out if the bios settings are maybe causing this. Is the system overclocked at all? Are the voltages correct? Maybe try resetting Bios to default settings and trying again.

Installing a third RAM stick causes failure to boot Vista. All RAM sticks work, one at a time or in pairs, in any combination of sockets, but adding a third stick causes blue screen of death and adding a...


As all clarification requests, you should be more specific so we can help you. Now your problem could most probably be that the third RAM you want to put does not comply for dual channel. If you want to use three DIMMs in a dual-channel configuration, install a matched pair of DIMMs equal in speed and size in DIMM 0 (blue) and DIMM 1 (black) of channel A. Install a DIMM equal in speed and total size of the DIMMs installed in channel A in either DIMM 0 or DIMM 1 of channel B. Your best bet is to have all your RAM in identical configurations of bus speed and size.

Problem accessing memory stick


I had the same problem. I bought a 2 gig memory pro-duo with the adapter and it gave me that error even though it fit just fine. I then tried a 512 memory stick and a 1 gig memory stick and neither one worked it gave me the C:13:01 error code. So I found out the hard way that the camera will not read it. The Sony DSC-S85 will not take memory above a 128. Try the Lexar 64MB memory stick. I just bought 4 and they work perfectly fine.
