Re: Ram slot

The problem is probably the 2 ram have different specifications. what i mean is that if one ram is PC400 and the other is PC333 there will be a conflict. you should install the same specs and with the same cast latency timer.

For a Chaintech 9BIA motherboard;

Motherboard chipset is an Intel 845,

PC133 (SDR Sdram at 133MegaHertz;

{Single Data Rate. The proper term, not just Sdram.
Double Data Rate Sdram is Sdram.
Double Data Rate 2 Sdram is Sdram.
Double Data Rate 3 Sdram is Sdram.
DDR Sdram, DDR2 Sdram, DDR3 Sdram.

Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory )

Low-Density, Unbuffered, Non-ECC, Cas Latency of 3

(Don't get some cr@p off of Ebay.
It's usually high-density, ECC, that was used by old server computers)

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

-> Need two 1GB sticks of SDR Sdram at 133MHz

$400 smakeroos USD!!

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.

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)

Motherboard User Manual,

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.)

Hello Sir, I had 512 MB 533 MHz DDR2 RAM(Dynet). Now I have bought 1 GB 667 MHz DDR2 RAM(Dynet). My system has 2 slots. In one slot, I have 512 MB RAM and in another slot, I installed 1 GB RAM that I have...

The Intel D102GGC2 uses a Dual Channel Memory Architecture meaning that both slots need to be running at the same speeds. I would suggest getting another 667 MHz RAM card and installing it along side your current one, just as I reminder this motherboard only supports 2GB RAM Max so don't get one that is above 1GB.

Asus P4B533 gives single beep at boot after installing Corsair 1GB PC2100 double sided ram in slot 1 by itself. No problem when 2 Kingston 256 MB single sided in slots 1&2.

These motherboards, as with most manufacturers, seem to have preferences for specific makes/models of peripheral gear, especially for RAM chips. Consult your motherboard manual for compatible RAM, and proper placement in the RAM slots. Also, consult the motherboard vendor for info in this regard. They may have specific experience with this motherboard that can steer you toward the proper RAM to use. ie, it is in their interests to have satisfied customers for repeat business, by supplying peripheral items that function reliably with the motherboards they sell. Don't delay, since this technology, and the items that stores carry change at an ever-faster pace. Also, don't cheap out by using RAM of questionable fit for this motherboard.
Please feel free to get back to me about your situation.

Has pc100 128mb and tried to go to Pc133 and wouldn't accept, what is the max memory i can put on this board

the details of that board are sorta sketchy, it could be an intel 810 series or 815 series. theres really no way to tell except by opening it up and looking for the largest exposed ic chip with intel stamped on it, and look for an 810 or 815 designation on that chip.

if its an 810, it may not support pc133 ram, depending on the exact 810 model. if its an 810, it also will not support more than 256 total ram.

if its an 815, it will accept 512 total ram, if not more; however, you will have to go with no more than 4 ram sides- meaning, if you have 2 double-sided ram sticks, you will not be able to add anymore. if you have 2 single sided sticks, and a 3rd ram slot open, you may be able to add a double sided stick in the empty slot for 1+1+2=4 ram sides.

Nforce4-a939 board ,my system shows single channel 64 bit but on perchasing it was dual channel 128 bit how can i fix it......

The 128-bit mode is achieved by putting _matching_ sticks of RAM in the RAM-slots. Non-matching RAM will run as "single-channel" (64-bit) mode.

Matching RAM must have the _same_ amount of RAM per stick,
and the same internal "timing" parameters (look closely at the RAM for strings like 3-2-2 or 2-2-2-2).

If you have exactly 2 RAM slots on the motherboard, matching RAM will always run in "dual" mode.

If you have matching RAM, and you have 4 RAM slots, put one stick of RAM in slot #1, and one in slot #2, and leave #3 and #4 empty. Start it up, to see if it is using "dual" mode.

If not, shutdown, power-off, and move the RAM from slot #2 to #3, and start it again. This time, it will run in "dual" mode.

I have problem about ram

If the manual says this motherboard support up to 1 GB RAM, you cannot put 2 GB. You can put 2x 512 GB RAM or 1GB RAM
Also try to upgrade your bios, maybe a better bios version supports more than 1 GB RAM.

My msi vis p4m800 motherboard don't support two ram

Hi, does your board have 2 diferent color RAM slots?

if it does you must install the RAM in the same color slots.

If not then you have the option of buying a 512 stick of RAM and installing that as a quick fix. The other alternative is to have your board tested by a technician.
