Question about Intel D101GGC Motherboard

1 Answer

Two rams stopped working in intel d101ggc from today

Hello everybody

I have an inter d101ggc motherboard and i am using it with 2 X 512 MB ram sticks till today. Suddenly today, a blue screen error has occurred and computer shuts down and will never reboot (as it says a file has not matched with its checksum). So i removed one hard disk out of my two hard disks (2 X 80GB) and still the problem exists. So i performed a brute force check and found that all are working except for the ram sticks. The problem is if i use one of the either ram sticks in one of the either 2 slots ( d101ggc has two slots for ram) every thing works just fine (computer boots and vista loads). But if i install both rams computer doesnt even boot(not even a beep) . And if i change the order of ram sticks in the slots computer boots but says that a file hasnt matched its checksum and halts the booting.

Kindly provide a solution for my problem.

You've got either mismatched RAM memory or 1 of your sticks are bad. You can isolate this by booting 1 stick at a time. If the machine boots fine with both sticks (one at a time) then they are mismatched or your motherboard isn't configure to handle the 2 sticks together (not very likely but a possibility) Hope this clarifies your problem All the best!

    Ok, assuming the following: the PC is virus free and you havn't made any recent changes to the BIOS, we're down to 2 possible issues:

    • Bad battery; a bad battery doesn't supply enough power to the motherboard when it's powered down; most motherboards will try to work through start up errors due to lack of power but some will leave you with the BSOD (blue screen of death)

    • Bad motherboard; this would explain why you can't run both sticks of RAM at the same time; although it will run one at a time, a bad motherboard can be overwhelmed by both sticks of RAM suddenly running more processes than it can handle

    I hope this helps and wish you the best of luck resolving your problem!

I have intel 101 Ggc Mother board and intel pentium D processor , i was using 756MB ram (512+ 256MB) RAM. But after i brought 1 GB ram and Used it instead of 256 MB Ram the system started restarting...

There is a chance that you have faulty RAM module. If computer is stable on POST (until Windows boot-up) I would suggest to use some testing tools to test that RAM with your motherboard. There is a good program called MemTest. You can find it online if you search Hirens Boot CD. Download it, burn image to disk, put 1GB RAM into motherboard, start-up PC and boot from CD. Then you'll search for Memtest program. I would suggest to leave PC for at least 6 hours for testing to find out if it's faulty or not (better to leave for 24 hours).

Upgrade ram


this board is ddr so you will need ddr400 or pc3200 and a maximum capacity of 2gb so be carefull with 1 gb sticks as sometimes this causes system crashes

check your previous memory if its dd1, ddr2 or dd3 and check also your motherboard's manual for this. be sure that you add the same specs of memory otherwise remove your previous memory.

Vista compatiable

intel doesnt list any vista drivers for that motherboard on there site so you might run into problems with the intergraded devices such as the ethernet,audio,chipset, & any intergraded video

You might be able to use the xp drivers but if theres problems it wouldnt be supported by intel
