Ram upgrade issue msi 845 pro motherboard

My PC does not work properly when upgraded to 512Mb x 3 sdram. It works ok on a single ram but not when 2 or 3 ram installed. It does not boot properly. XP & Ubuntu are reporting a kernel error message that is somewhat related to the memory address. My old pc is a P4 1.5G intel processor on msi 845pro mobo & ami flash bios running on xp pro & ubuntu. I need help with setup. Thanks.

    The PC seems to be working on boot startup. The bios on startup is reporting the extended ram memory installed which is 1535 mb. So I did not touch the BIOS setup. However, I cannot run my PC either on windows xp & Ubuntu properly. For windows, it is reporting some missing files like ntkrnlmp.exe and hal.dll. Now, I attempted to reinstall XP SP3 windows with no success. Again It cannot load files like ntkrnlmp.exe and hal.dll. What is wrong with this RAMs?

    This is the DRAM Timing setting in the BIOS:
    Configure DRAM Timing by: SPD
    CAS# Latency: 3 Clocks
    RAS# Precharge: 3 Clocks
    RAS# to CAS# Delay: 3 Clocks
    Precharge Delay: 7 Clocks
    DRAM integrity Mode: Non-ECC
    AGP Aperture Size: 256MB
    Delayed Transaction: Enabled

    All 3 rams installed are exactly the same with the following description:
    Memory Capacity = 512Mb
    Memory Speed= PC133, 133Mhz
    Memory Type=SDRAM DIMM, 3.3v, CL3.0, 168pin for Desktop PC
    Other Features: Unbuffered, non-ECC,non-Parity, 64x4 high density

    My motherboard is an MSI 845 Pro motherboard (MS-6529 ATX mainboard)

You should check bios for the ram settings, voltage and speed, they will be printed on the package the ram came in.

also, you don't want to mix ram up, they will run at the slowest ones speed.

also, most ram is used in pairs (2 at a time) using the 3, depending on the motherboard will give you errors.

try entering the bios on boot, and set the ram setting properly. you should see something that flashes on boot, like press f8 or del for bios. change your ram settings, save and exit. type back with your motherboard and ram model numbers if this solution did not work.

Also, the motherboard will be having specific support for single and double sided rams... You need to check the motherboard manual to know that...

WHEW! Unless you just want to run 1GB of ram memory, I would toss that board! (Two 512MB sticks) ->

Bah! That is just cra-zy!

Maximum TOTAL Amount is 2GigaByte. (2GB)
Maximum Amount for EACH ram memory slot is 1GB.

IF, you only have ONE ram memory module ('Stick'), it goes in Slot 1. (DIMM 1)
That is the ram memory slot closest to the processor socket.
The Processor reads ram memory Slot 1 first.

I have an Intel 845 Gvsr Motherboard,with 512 mb 266 Mhz RAM I want to upgrade the system to 320GB, with 2 Gb RAM, and also I want to make it HD Compatible is it possible, and is it worth taking a risk. ...


Upgrading HDD is no risk for your PC. The RAM memory instead should cause a problem if it's not compatible. The problem that can appear is simple: your computer won't start until you take out the ram memory. Your type of motherboard supports:Max 2Gb of RAM (DDR SDRAM)
Cheers.

PC does not recognized all memory installed on an upgrade of RAM


The operating system perhaps does not support anymore ram then this.

Or the motherboard may need a firmware update.

You can get the latest firmware from the manufactures website

Pc5300 on pc3200 slot to upgrade msi 845gvm-v


PC5300 or more correctly "PC2-5300" and can work in a system that has "PC2-3200" RAM, and if mixed, they will operate at the speed of the slowest module. "PC-3200" RAM, however, is not compatible. PC-3200 is DDR SDRAM, having 184 pins. PC2-3200, and PC2-5300 are DDR2 SDRAM, having 240 pins. DDR and DDR2 modules are the same length,
but the pins on DDR2 are smaller and the keying notch is in a slightly different position.

You need to get the replacement ram all the same type ie - DDR or DDR2

And yes your motherboard should accept 2GB max

Graphic card for GA-8IPE1000 series


HI there.
There are loads of makers of memory and graphics cards out there to choose from.
For the ram i would recommend Corsair or Kingston, you can get this ram as a matching pair so the both run at the same speed, the best ram to get is DDR 400.
As for the graphics card, i recommend ATI radeon X1650 Pro 512MB graphics card.
These upgrades will make your machine purr like a kitten with an excellent gaming experience.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

2G Memory Upgrade


I had similar problem with CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory

If this is your RAM:
Corsair 1024MB Value Select PC2-4200 (533MHz) DDR2 RAM, 128Mx64non-ECC, 240-pin DIMM, Unbuffered, CL4, Lifetime warranty (VS1GB533D2) Then it is high density. You need low density to work, look for one ending with an 8, not 64.

Intel ASUS P4 845 GL Motherboard


Hi, For an ASUS P4BGL-VM Intel 845GL Chipset Ultra ATA100 MATX CPU Type: Intel Pentium 4 478-Pin (OEM), the Asus site specifies max of 2 x 184-pin DIMM Sockets support max. 2GB PC2100 / PC1600 non-ECC DDR or SDRAM memory but not "and". Personally, I find it more practical to install 2 X 1Gb rather than a single 2Gb. Hope this gives you some idea. Kind regards.
