Question about Intel D850MV Motherboard

1 Answer

I have a question on how to add RAM to an Intel D850MV.

This board has 4 slots for RAM, 2 in Bank 0 and 2 in Bank 1. I currently have 2 256MB sticks of RAM in Bank 0. The two slots of Bank 1 are filled by two pieces of green plastic. I assume those are just to fill the empty slots (please let me know if I'm wrong). My question is, do both slots of Bank 1 need to be filled with RAM sticks? And if so, must they both be the same gig's of memory? I tried to just insert 1 265MB stick of RAM into one slot of Bank 1 and left the green plastic in the other slot, but my PC would not power up. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    I did a little more research and it looks like both slots of bank 1 must be filled or the computer will not power on. Thanks for your help. If anyone else wants to chime in, feel free.

According to specs your board can max out at 2GB. So you could fill all slots with 512 Gb sticks, 1GB total in each bank. You should always match RAM in pairs. You should be able to add just 1 stick in second bank as long as the first 2 banks are filled.

I have e-machines T5026 with an Intel Corporation D915GAG mother board which currently has 1.5GB Dual-Channel DDR @ 133MHz (3-3-3-8). I am trying to add 1 gig of PNY RAM, #MD1024SD1-400. When I installed...


You may be using the wrong parity or out Latency ram. if they are not similar in latency they will not work in tandem. Make sure both of the ram's are the same MHZ and CS latency. Also, you may have bad ram as well. Try using the new ram first to see if the computer posts, if it does, input the old ram in the second slot, and if that doesnt work, the ram is not compatible with each other.

Has pc100 128mb and tried to go to Pc133 and wouldn't accept, what is the max memory i can put on this board


the details of that board are sorta sketchy, it could be an intel 810 series or 815 series. theres really no way to tell except by opening it up and looking for the largest exposed ic chip with intel stamped on it, and look for an 810 or 815 designation on that chip.

if its an 810, it may not support pc133 ram, depending on the exact 810 model. if its an 810, it also will not support more than 256 total ram.

if its an 815, it will accept 512 total ram, if not more; however, you will have to go with no more than 4 ram sides- meaning, if you have 2 double-sided ram sticks, you will not be able to add anymore. if you have 2 single sided sticks, and a 3rd ram slot open, you may be able to add a double sided stick in the empty slot for 1+1+2=4 ram sides.

Memory won't add on a Gigabyte GA-6VEML


Hi,
this will be dependant on the bios version. or if the 2 ram modules are identical or not. if they,re a matched pair. the motherboard may not like or run in dual-channel mode. sometimes adjustable in the systems bios. the other suggestion, is to try 1 stick of ram, in each slot individually. This will eliminate A Faulty Slot. Failing any Of The Above. try 2 x 256mb sticks, And Obtain The Latest Bios Update from The Manufacturers Website.

Can you add to much Ram for the processor to handle?


That additional RMA will be good for your computer so it will be much faster and don't worry everything should work fine there after adding new RAM to your computer....

Intel D845GBV Motherboard Problem


PC1600 runs at 200MHZ and PC2100 runs at 266MHZ..

Since your motherboard only supports a max of 266MHZ, I would recommend that. (not to mention that PC1600 is pretty much obsolete)..

2nd, you motherboard supports a MAX of 2GB Total ram.. So, you could install 1GB + 256MB.. But why not go for 2xGB?

The price for a 1GB stick of PC2100 is around $75-125 CAN. Not soo cheap anymore...
