Memory upgrade - P4M80-M4

I tried to boost my RAM from (1) 256 DDR 184pin stick, to (2) 1GB DDR's. When I power up, my machine won't boot past the graphic display page. Graphic appears grainy and won't load BIOS or CMOS. Everything runs fine with (1) 1GB stick or (1) 1GB and (1) 256MB stick. But not with (2) 1GB. My manual says I can run up to 2GB, 1GB per DIMM.

Do I have to change settings anywhere in BIOS or clock settings?

Just replaced my Biostar P4M80-M4 mother board with a new one and I now have no screen. Power supply on, fans running, appears all is well but no screen?

Try replace the Memory module (DDR2 RAM) with new ones.That's should fix it!!

If still won't come out, replace the power supply unit.

Will not POST with 2g of kingston hyperX ram inside

If you are going to call. The question I would ask (Very important), will the board run with CL2 = 2.5v & or CL3 = 2.6 to 2.65volt memory.
This site is Kingston memory setter. Type in the board & it show's the type of memory the board can use. (Click on this link). As you look at the link this is for you're P4M80-M4 board.
This should help. I did not see a bios upgrade for this board that had anything to do with memory. The USA Biostar link is lacking opposed to the global link. The global manual give far more information (In depth), for bios instructions.
Global link:

I'm sure the Kingston link will more than help you the_OCer.
Good luck!

Computer will not boot with 2 gigs of ram.

yaa viz eagle is right, its really seems like frequency mismatch. The both RAM must of same size, same type, and same frequency.

Ram Memory

your motherboard my only recognise two of the same size or make of ram. try the 1024mb in on it's own and see if the bios allows the system to boot and recognise it. see what windows recognises, go to my computer, right click, properties and in the main window it will tell you processor speed and look to see how much ram is showing

P4M80-M4 not powering up

You may have the power and reset connectors on the right terminals, but they may need turning around, normal rule of thumb is if the markings on the connectors are on the outside, then turn them to face inwards.
