Upgraded Ram Issues

This board has 4 RAM slots,
2 - DDR-400
2 - DDR2-533

Its doesnt matter whick Ram type I use, if I put a 1GB (single) stick in the motherboard it slows to a crawl. The machine runs faster on a single 512MB stick than it does with 2GBs installed

Bios version date is June 1st 2006... latest "available" version on ECS's site is Feb 15th 2006 (no thats not a typo)
Any Ideas?

Check the voltage on your new ram.
For ddr2 you need both slots filled.(this the memory I would use)
Make sure you put it in the right slots.
make sure that BIOs recognises each stick.
Let me know if these work for you.

I want to extend the RAM memory on my NEC computer. The motherboard is a GA-8SIMLNF Rev.1.1. It has two memory slots and presently one slot is occupied with a PC2100U-20330-A1 256 DDR 133 CL2 memory. I...


Check your manual (Gigabyte will have the manual on their website), to make sure your motherboard can handle 1Gb of Ram, or more. Generally in my experience, medium aged motherboards handle 1GB per slot, max (mine uses PC3200, not PC2100, and will take up to 4GB in its 4 slots).

You'll want PC2100 ram (easily searched for on http://www.newegg.com), either in 2x512MB sticks, or a single 1GB stick for your open slots (bringing you up to 1.25GB).

What is the max ram speed my pc can take


According to some research, your desktop has 4 RAM slots available. The total maximum RAM your desktop can hold is 2GB (2048MB). Furthermore, each slot can hold a maximum of 1GB (1024) but cannot exceed the 2GB total.
This means you can theoretically install 2 x 1GB RAM DIMMS in 2 RAM slots or 4 x 512MB RAM DIMMS. Both will meet the desktops 2GB limitation.
The RAM specifications for your desktop are as follows:
RAM Limit: 2GB (2048MB) RAM Slot Type: SO-DIMM RAM Type: DDR1 (not DDR2 or DDR3) RAM Speed: PC3200/DDR400 ECC Type: Non-ECC
TIP: The RAM is DDR which means that while you can install them as singles (single-channel mode), the system will see a speed benefit from installing them as matched pairs (dual-channel mode).

Would A 1GB PC3200 run in the K7s5a alone.


According to the specs the max amount of ram is 1 GB and max speed is pc2100 so a pc3200 would not run on it unless the board was able to clock the speed down of that single stick of ram.

I was not able to find the max amount of ram per slot on a quick search but most likely it would be 512 mb per slot for a max of 1 GB between the two DDR slots.

at Newegg you can find DDR 266 1 GB kits (2 x 512mb) which would get you the 1 GB of ram.

About my ram of p4m800-m7 rev 3.1 i have a 512mb ram already installed and i buy a new ram with a 1gb size and i would like to install it but my question is is it okay to put them together? my 512mb ram is...


The black rectangular chips on the side, or sides, of the ram module are DRAM chips. Dynamic Random Access Memory.

('Chip' is slang term to denote IC, or Integrated Circuit)

Each Dram chip is of a specific size, (or can be said as Amount)
There are manufacturers who make the Dram chips, and then the chips are used by the ram memory manufacturer.

Doesn't matter how the Dram chips are arranged. The ram memory manufacturer could put them all of one side, if they designed it that way.

1.Your motherboard will support, (Use), DDR at 333Mhz, or DDR at 400MegaHertz.
(PC2700 and PC3200, respectively)

2.The ram memory module must use 2.5 Volts.
(JEDEC has set the voltage standard for DDR Sdram at 2.5 Volts, so no worries here. Only time to check this, is if you have some High performance ram, that may be set to use a higher voltage)

3.It must be Non-ECC ram, and Unbuffered.

4.Cas Latency should be 2.5 to 3.0 (Ram Timings)

Short solution?

Computer off, and unplugged from power. TOUCH the metal frame of the computer case to relieve your body of Static.

Handle the ram 'sticks' by the body of the stick, and refrain from touching the gold plated contact pins, on the bottom.

If the 512MB stick is in SLOT 1, remove it. Install the 1GB stick in Slot 1. Make SURE it is seated!

(Slot 1, is the ram memory slot that is closest to the Processor. It is the first ram memory slot that the Processor reads)

Leave the computer case open. (Refrain from putting your hands in while the computer is plugged into power)

Plug the computer into power. Wait 30 seconds. Turn the computer on.

Computer boots up? (Starts)
Okay.
Unplug from power. Install the 512MB stick in Slot 2.
Plug into power, wait 30 seconds. Turn the computer on.
Computer boots up?
You're good to go.

1GB ram memory stick is in Slot 1, and the computer does not boot up?
Incompatible ram memory. Remove it. Reinstall the original 512MB stick in Slot 1.

I have a intel 845gvsr board, want to replace a Ram. What type of RAM is suitable for this board?


Your Intel D845GVSR has,

1. Two ram slots.

2.Maximum Amount of ram is 1GB for EACH ram slot.

3.Maximum TOTAL Amount is 2GB, (1GB in each ram slot)

4.Uses DDR Sdram at 400MHz, (PC3200), OR
DDR Sdram at 533MHz, (PC4200)

This is an example of DDR Sdram at 400MHz, (PC3200),

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=1354&name=PC3200-DDR-Dual-Channel-Memory&Nav=|c:1352|&Sort=0&Recs=10

(Not advertising for this website. There are many places to buy ram memory)
512MB + 512MB = 1024MB, or also stated as 1GB
1024MB = 1GB

Kt600 with 2, 1GB 3200 ddr ram sticks won't let win xp install, but with 1gb 3200 ddr ram, win xp installs


First put the stick you are having issues with in a different slot; If it still does not work download memtest86 and burn it to a cd and run it with only the RAM stick you are having issues with. Here is a link to the program http://www.memtest86.com/memtest34a.zip

Radeon graphics card and 3rd RAM slot conflict


I thought this board looked familiar to me. I recall some rules for the memory cards. Do all your memory cards meet this requirement:

Supports up to 3GB PC1600/2100/2700/3200* DDR SDRAMs

If you are using DDR 400 you can only use 1 slot.

What kind of memory are you using?

Upgrade from 512MB to 1GB


The specs on the memory are correct, so you purchased the correct type of memory for this motherboard. If your getting no video when you power on with the 1gb stick, I would be willing to bet the 1gb stick is bad. Can you return it and try another stick?
