What's your problem?bit ix38 quad gt motherboard with 2 gig of ddr2 ram i want to add a 1 gig stick of more ram that ive bought how do i do this? thanks windows seven


Top view of motherboard, scroll down. (Thought you might also like to read the reviews, and Comments)

http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/motherboards/2007/12/06/abit_ix38_quadgt/2

Motherboard User Manual,

http://www.theraptorpit.com/forum/index.php?/forum/124-abit-motherboard-tech-support-unofficial/

1) On the motherboard the Blue ram memory slot that is closest to the copper heatsink, is ram memory Slot 1.
Also known as DIMM 1.

Ram memory ALWAYS has to be in this ram memory slot.
The Processor reads ram memory Slot 1 first.

2) The Blue ram memory slots are Slot 1 (DIMM 1), and Slot 3.
(DIMM 3)
The Black ram memory slots are Slot 2 (DIMM 2), and Slot 4.
(DIMM 4)

To run Dual Channel ram memory, means there are two LIKE ram memory modules ('Stick'), and they are installed in the SAME channel.

This would mean to alike ram memory modules, in both Blue ram memory slots, or both Black ram memory slots.

Since the ram memory modules need to be alike, they are generally purchased from the same manufacturer, and are the same kind.

Running ram memory in a dual channel configuration, is supposed to increase ram memory 'speed', up to 30 percent.

This is Baloney!
May look good on paper, but in actual use in the field it's cr@p.
Actual performance increase is more like 1 to 2 percent.
This has been proven by Tom's Hardware, and many, many motherboards, ram memory, Processors, etc.

So you have 2GB of DDR2 Sdram, huh?
Is it just one 'stick' of ram memory, or are you referring to two 1GB sticks?

If the above holds true install them in Slot 1 and Slot 3.

If not, and it is a 2GB stick of ram memory, be sure it is installed in Slot 1 (DIMM 1)
Install the 1GB stick in Slot 2.

It isn't the same as the 2GB stick.
It is 1GB.
Does NOT go in a dual channel configuration.

(Catching all this? There is NO dual channel ram memory!

It is ram memory that is -> ALIKE, and used in a -> dual channel configuration.
Used in two separate ram memory slots, that support the dual channel configuration.

Sold with the advertising scheme of 'Dual Channel', but really just means the two ram memory modules, (Or four), are -> alike.

1) Same Voltage used
2) Same Ram Timings
3) Same Chip Configuration
4) Same size in amount
5) Same frequency rate ('Speed')

With ram memory in a dual channel configuration, the ram memory modules team up on the task.)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Can I install one (1-gig) memory stick instead of 2 match pairs (only have one) this is to replace two 256 sticks?will it preform at 1 - gig memory


Yes.

The Maximum Total Amount of Ram Memory is 2GB.
(2048MB)
The Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot is 1GB.
(1024MB)

Ram should be installed in Slot 1, when using just one stick of ram.
This is the ram slot closest to the Processor.

The Processor reads ram memory that is installed in Slot 1, first.

This is Dell Support, and the main support page for the Dimension 3000 desktop computer,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim3000/en/SM/index.htm

In the list left-click on - Technical Overview

Now click on - System Board Components

Number 1 is Slot 1.

Note*
Your body carries Static electricity. Static WILL fry out (Short Circuit) the delicate computer hardware components inside a computer.

Work on a table.
After you have opened the computer case, and BEFORE you remove that ram module from it's anti-static protective bag, TOUCH the metal frame of the open computer case. (Power unplugged from computer)

This will relieve your body of static.
Ignore the above if you are already aware.

Blue screen error acer desk top


hi friend the blue screen comes when there is a 1:hardware problem
2:virus problem
3:Installation Disk is corrupted
4:RAM problem

First, check your CD and clean or replace it as necessary. Your next step should be to test your system memory for errors with a diagnostic program.
To do this obtain the Windows Memory Diagnostic or Memtest memory diagnostic programs on floppy or CD we mentioned earlier, and use it to boot your system and test the memory. If either of these programs shows any errors in your memory, you have likely found the source of your troubles.
Chances are you will need to purchase new memory. For more information on faulty memory and memory diagnostics, see PCstats Guide to diagnosing bad memory .

Blue screen. 0x0000008e (0xc0000005,0x80409A88,0xf789e360,0x00000000.


This error occurs due to the following reasons: Faulty RAM, registry errors, incompatible drivers, hardware failures, faulty BIOS configuration, Viruses.
Follow the steps below to avoid the BSOD error message occurs again.
Check whether the RAM installed in your computer complies with the motherboard specs. Replace the RAM if needed. You can also check the systems with a friend's RAM to know whether the error message is due to RAM.
Use a free registry cleaner/fixer software available to clean/repair your windows registry. (Ccleaner is good at this)
Do not install incompatible device drivers. Install only Microsoft Signed drivers. Update your existing driver software from the corresponding device manufacturer's website.
If you have installed/changed new hardware, check whether it is supported by your system. Also check whether it is installed properly. If needed test the systems without the faulty hardware. Check whether you've installed correct/signed driver software for that particular hardware.
If you have reconfigured your system BIOS, set it to default/optimal/recommended settings and test the system. Disable features like BIOS caching.
Use an original and up to date antivirus system like Norton, McAfee or Kaspersky and run a full systems scan.
Keep your windows updated with current patches and fixes to protect the systems from unwanted troubles.
All the best.

My windows suddenly shows "beginning memory dump"


It sounds like you might having a problem with RAM. A couple of questions for you:
1. Are you running any particular type of application before getting the blue screen?
2. Have you recently upgraded your PC with more RAM?
3. Also how much RAM do you have? You need at least a minimum of 1 gig of RAM to efficiently run Vista...even though this might not be causing the problem, but it does help overall performance/

Another thing that you can try is looking in the Event Viewer and then tell me any error messages that you see. To get to the event viewer...Click on Start --> Run --> type in eventvwr.msc and press enter. Once in the event viewer look under System and see if there are any error's that occurred around the time the blue screen came up.

Just in case that its RAM...try this downloading this tool (memtest )to diagnose any issues with RAM --> http://www.memtest.org/.

Stop Error (Blue Screen) XP/7000 VE/AGP


sounds like might be a bad card,

alternatively your system ram might be giving you grief, i had major BSOD issues with my computer and ram tested fine, upon switching sockets that the ram was in i found that it was actually good ram, bad ram socket.

Hi tried that... sound card is connected and vm-ware tools is also installed... its surely a problem with the windows 2003 server. because the error sound is played through the macbook speakers but not any...


see heres the thing when using VM-Ware, VM-Ware doesnt use drivers for your physical hardware, because it emulates the hardware that is seen in the hardware information of your system preferences.

So installing even drivers for the "emulated" hardware will not work, as VM-Ware uses its own drivers for the hardware, which are included with the VM-Ware Tools, if that doesnt seem to work, you may want to contact VM-Ware support, as they may have a better solutiuon.
