No place them this way if one kind is kingston or whatever a1 b1 and the other kind makes no difference as long as their in the right sockets/ a2 b2 these should be colored so if you have 2 of one kind and 2 of another you would keep them in the perspective colors ?dual ram is usually done this way you would have 1 gb in a1 and the other in b1

My mobo has 4 memory card slots


1) All of your memory must be compatible with your motherboard (DDR, DDR2, or DDR3 and speed and latency). For best results, if you have dual channel capability, each pair of memory sticks should be matched. (Usually consecutive serial numbers indicate pairs from a given manufacturer.) Both sets of memory should be rated at the same speed (or the slowest speed will be your memory speed). Some motherboards may not work with all 4 slots occupied unless the memory was certified to work as a set of 4.

2) Which motherboard do you have? The motherboard manufacturer and memory companies often will have lists of compatible memory. The motherboard manufacturer will also have information on the dual-channel pairing.

My current and previous motherboards have had memory slots in color pairs (blue, black). For my boards, I put the sticks in the blue slots (A2 and B2) first. (Preferably these should be the largest memory capacity.) Then I put the second pair of memory into the black slots (A1 and B1). DIMM slot A1 is closest to the CPU; B2 is the farthest away from the CPU.

Depending on your CPU cooler, you may need to remove it or modify it to use all 4 DIMM slots.

Observe the appropriate steps to avoid static discharges while handling your memory and when inside your computer. For actually inserting the memory, make sure that the locks (white on my motherboards) are fully open (hinged away from the slot). Line up your memory so that the slot in the memory is on top of the key in the slot and the memory is centered in the slot. It will only line up one way; the wrong memory type will not line up. Push your memory stick down fully until the locking clips rotate up and fully engage the memory. (You may need to push down at multiple places to get it fully seated.) You will then repeat the procedure with the rest of the memory.

Note: if you get a memory error, three beeps (on many boards), you will need to remove the memory and test one stick at a time in the A2 slot (for example). Then test pairs of slots. It is not unknown for either one stick to be bad or one slot to be bad. Look at the total memory your OS identifies, if you manage to boot in spite of any issues. Running Memtest may be needed but even that may not identify which specific memory segment is bad.

I hope this helps.

(who has installed or replaced memory since giving an 286 computer a full megabyte of memory. DIMMs are a lot harder to mess up as long as you have the correct memory. Note: most of the different DIMM types have different number of pins; thus sometimes it's very easy to tell that the wrong memory is being used. This isn't always the case.)

I have an asus m2n mx (windsor) motherboard and an amd athlon x2 3600+ processor . . . i have a pair of 667mhz 512MB (total 1GB) ram and a pair of 800mhz 1GB (total 2GB). . grand total(3 GB) . . My problem...


The manual for your motherboard states:

For dual-channel memory configuration (2), you may:

• install identical DIMMs in all four sockets OR

• install an identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A1 and DIMM_B1 (yellow

sockets) and another identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A2 and

DIMM_B2 (black sockets)

* Always use identical DDR2 DIMM pairs for dual-channel model. For

optimum compatibility, we recommend that you obtain memory modules
from the same vendor.

Anyone know why an ASUS PTGD1-LA motherboard will only take memory in slots A1 and A1 or A1 and B1 but not anything in B with both in A filled? Brand new memory.


HI,

The board has specific requirements for memory. Here's the Memory Configurations :

  • You may install 256 MB. 512 MB and 1 GB unbuffered non-ECC DRR DIMMs into the DIMM sockets using the memory configurations in this section.

• Installing DDR DIMM. Other than the recommended configurations may cause memory sizing or system boot failure.

• In dual-channel configurations, install only Identical (the same type and size) DDR DIMM pairs for each channel.

• Always install DIMMs with the same CAS Latency. For optimum compatibility , It Is recommended that you obtain memory modules from the same vendor

• Double-sided x 16 modules are not supported on this motherboard.

• Due to chipset resource allocation, the system may detect less than 4 GB system memory when you installed four 1 GB memory modules.


For dual-channel configuration you may:

install identical DIMMs in all four sockets

• install identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A1 and DlMM_B1 (blue sockets) and identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A2 and DIMM_B2 (black sockets)

• install same size DIMMs in DIMM_A1 and DIMM_B1 (blue sockets) and another same size pair in DIMM_A2 aid DIMM_B2 (black sockets)

Hopefully this will help understand how to install the new memory.

Thanks Mark

for dual channel 3 configuration you may
install identical dimms in all four sockets or
identical in A1 and B1 [blue ]
and identical in dimm A2 and dimm B2 [black sockets ].
Probably same as yours

Burnt DDR DIMM socket


It may be possible, but the system may very well become unstable at times. The purpose of the different color dimms is either daul band memory and or hypertheading, which means the memory needs to be matched and in pairs to work correctly. I would try one pair in the same colored slots in which one of them is not burnt. Also can you get it to boot with one stick of ram in a slot? Have you seen this board boot at all with 1 burnt slot (Known Good Board). Hope this was informative to you. Good Luck, Let me know how it works out.

Hello My ASUS K8V-MX Motherboard has only two memory slot


Look into you're manual, go to pages 1-11 & 1-12.
The memory listed here has been tested by Asus to work correctly in the K8V-MX motherboard. In order for you to reach 2GB memory you will need DS memory. Double sided. This means there is 512MG on each side of a single DIMM, hence 2x1x 512MB DIMM equals 1GB. So you will need 4x 512MB to raxhl a total memory of 2GB. Please stay within the recommended memory listed on the Qualified Vendor List (QVL).
Simptronics memory it not on the QVL list. From time to time some memory not one the list may still function. This is not one of those times.

When i add a memory in damaged DIMM slot showing black screen?


Try moving the working DIMM to other slots, it should work in any slot, if it does, the other ram u have is incompatible or bad

Install a matched pair of DIMMs (equal in speed: DDR266, DDR333, or
DDR400; density: 64 MB, 128 MB, 256 MB, 512 MB, or 1 GB; and
technology: 128 Mb, 256 Mb, or 512 Mb) in DIMM 0 in both Channels A and
B. If additional memory is to be used, install another matched pair of DIMMs
in DIMM 1 in both Channels A and B.

SAMSUNG 1GB RAM 400MHZ PC3200


RAM has to be

Four 184-pin DDR DIMM sockets

Supports PC3200 (400 MHz) /PC2700 (333 MHz) / PC2100 (266 MHz) DDR DIMM type

Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory module is 1 GB

Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory is 4 GB
It has to be the same.


• If you are replacing a memory module, put the
new memory module in the same memory slot
from which the old memory was removed.
Or
• If you are adding a memory module, install the
new module into the socket nearest the
preinstalled module, and install additional
modules in the next available sockets
