How to correctly install ram boards to get dual channel configuration. The DIMMs are counting from CPU :first two- YELLOW; 3rd and 4th - BLACK. Still getting dual channel if i have 2x 2 gb and 1 of 1gb(of i think different voltage and frequency)
According to HPs information on that mainboard it should only have 2 slots and they are blue...see this link: Motherboard Specifications M2N68 LA Narra6
Is it possible you could take a picture of your mainboard and upload it?

Try them in the same-colored slots, nearest the processor. It seems ASUS (who makes your mobo) has chosen to color code their slots so those of the same color enable dual-channel. If you can't tell from the BIOS detection, try CPU-Z to verify that the memory is in the correct slots for dual-channel operation. Putting one in the wrong slot should not damage anything. It would just make it so you can't take advantage of the extra speed.

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.

You can install 128 MB, 256 MB, 512 MB, and 1GB DDR SDRAM DIMMs into the DIMM sockets using the memory configurations in this section.
• Install only identical (the same type and size) DDR DIMM pairs
using the recommended configurations.
• Make sure that the memory frequency matches the CPU FSB
(Front Side Bus). Refer to the Memory frequency/CPU FSB
synchronization table on the next page.
• This motherboard does not support double-sided 16-bit DDR DIMMs.
• Do not create a three-DIMM configuration in dual-channel mode. The
third DIMM is ignored in the dual-channel operation.
