This problem can be caused by several things. First, are the memory chips exactly identical (brand, type, size, etc.)? If not, that will definitely cause the problem. Second, how many memory slots are there? If you have four, check the manual and make sure you're putting the memory in the correct slots. Some Mobo's require that you put chips in slots A1 and B1 and not A1 and A2. Also, some Mobo's have DDR slots and DDR2 slots, so make sure you're putting the right kind of memory into the proper slots. Some people fudge the memory by putting 400 mhz memory into slower slots, and that works one chip at a time - but if you install a second, identical chip, the system will fail. If all else fails and you've met these conditions, check the type of memory to be sure of the proper fit (use manufacturer's recommended brands and numbers) or try a different chip in the second slot. One chip could be bad.

No, it is an AMD socket 462 (socket A) motherboard, which is not compatible with an intel chip.

I used 1gb ddr400 to my Asus P4P800-X, it works, but after a few days it always turn black my screen, sometimes i can used it more than an hour & sometimes 5 - 10mins long.. i used another 1gb ddr400.....


The black and blue slots are to indicate where paired sets of identical DIMMs should be inserted. So one pair would use the blue slots and the other pair would use the black. It's possible that your motherboard doesn't fully support this RAM type but you would only be able to find that information at the Motherboard maker's website. Hopefully they still have BIOS updates for that motherboard posted online so you can update it. Sometimes all you need is an update to the BIOS to support newer processors or memory.

Asrock p4s61, tried 1gb pc3200 to max memory to 3gb, won't boot.


you quote one of your memory sticks as being pc 2700 when earlier in your text you qoute pc3200.

Firstly pc 3200 is 400 mhz clock speed memory.Secondly, pc 2700 is 333mhz clock speed and you acnnot mix the two on the same board. Thirdly does your board support 3ghz anyway. If you are running a board at 400mhz, pc2700 memory will not run at 400mhz.

Solution, take out the pc 2700 memory and all will be well.

Sounds like either a bad stick of memory or a bad dimm slot . Have you tried the memory on another motherboard ?

Memory Update


Hello there.

From your description is sounds like the new Memory is either faulty, or not compatible with your sytem, this explains the error messages and blue screens.

What i would suggest is to download a free program called 'memtest' that you can burn to cd and let your computer load it up before it loads Windows, this will check the memory for any errors and verify that indeed the memory is faulty.

You can find memtest here

Please try this and let us know what happens. If you only purchased the memory then you can get it replaced for free.

Hope this helps.

    PSU 250W usually isn`t good with GF6600 (like and high) videocards. Strongly recommended 350W and high for this configuration (and "350W" - not only numbers in model - for really QUALITY PSUs).
