Because you didn't indicated the version of you motherboard I need you to go to the ECS website

On your left select product category motherboards, socket 478, model P4VMM2, the right version and download the manual for your motherboard.


If you look the manual there are few jumper that you need to change.

Usually JP1, j2 and J3 like on this picture.

Hey All, THIS IS URGENT. My PVCLE266M-L V3.0a will not boot into any OS. I have 2 identical boards. I can navigate BIOS on both of them with the DDR400 512MB RAM stick I have put in. (The specifications...

Your mainboard PVCLE266M-L does not support the DDR 400 Mhz RAM (PC3200) ie @ 400Mhz frequency. For the memory specfications it support "2 x 184-pin DIMM sockets support two2.5V DDR SDRAMs (DDR266)" maximium is 2GB or DDR PC2100 ie @ 266Mhz frequency.

PC133 is the SDRAM so it will not fit the DDR RAM slot.

You should not use the 400MhzDDR memory RAM on a Mainboard with a FSB(Front Side Bus) of 133 Mhz and the 400Mhz DDR Ram is not compatible with the mainboard.

Get the DDR 266 with double side chipset i.e.DDR1 RAM (DDR PC2100) RAM and it will be compatible with your mainboard. Sometimes single side chipset DDR1 RAM will not work on older mainboard.

Hope it helps.

Ram compatabilty for k7s5a motherboardand can I run a 1gig of ram with this board

A really unique MB since Each DIMM slot can accommodate DIMMs up to 512 MB in size, although both DDR and SD-RAM are supported, but any one at time, i.e. one among consisting of a bank of 2 DIMM slots(blue pair & black pair having the pairs 2 slots each) for DDR or 2 DIMM slots for DDR or SDR memory cannot be used at the same time. Thus the board supports either 1 GB of PC133 SDRAM, or 1 GB of DDR sdRAM, but not both at the same time.

I hope you got the Catch 22 here !! Nice low costs for doing simple work?
but it's a Catch 22 situation{either choose the Devil or Hell !) ................. sodeep

I can't recognize what specific RAM this motherboard accepts..

Dear sir,

In reply to your post- Generally now a days we use DDR400 RAM(DDR 1) for this type of motherboard.So DDR 400 RAM is More compatible then other RAM,you can use this RAM for your motherboard to obtain good performance.

good luck

Ddr not detected

if you want to use ddr ram with p4vmm2 mother bord you must replace the jumper near by the ddr2 slot
then your computer starts to work with ddr ram at 266Mhz also 400 Mhz too.

Pentium 4 comptability with SD Ram

If you know what mother board you have you could check what RAM it can use.

All RAM is installed in the same way, but different types of RAM are keyed differently. That basically means that one type of RAM (for example SD RAM) will simply not fit into another type of RAM slot (for example a DDR RAM slot).

To install ram on a PC
Please note - do NOT touch the connector side of the RAM, handle it only by holding the side or top edge
1. check that you have the right type of RAM. do this by lining up the RAM above the RAM slot and making sure that the RAM is the same length as the RAM slot AND ALSO that the RAM's key (the little hole or notch in the RAM) lines up with the key in the RAM slot. Note there might be more than one key
2. open both clips of the RAM slot by pushing them down and out from the center of the RAM slot
3. gently insert the RAM into the RAM slot
4. check again that the RAM and the RAM slot's key's line up, if they do, firmly press down on the RAM on both corners until both clips automatically click shut on the RAM

That's it! :-)
