Question about ASUS P5VD2-MX SE Motherboard

2 Answers

ASUS P5VD2-MX SE recognizes only up to 2500MB RAM

Some time ogo I configured a PC with the ASUS P5VD2-MX SE Motherboard with 2GB RAM (2 x 1GB Kingston 533MHz DDR2 DIMMS). Today I changed the RAM and installed 4GB with 2 x 2GB Kingston 533MHz DDR2 DIMMS. The BIOS recognizes only 2500MB RAM. I tried each DIMM individually, and they're OK. I also installed the latest BIOS update for this Motherboard (versión 0701), but the problem remains.
Does anybody know how to solve this issue?
Best regards,

George.

Yes this board only holds 2 gb max of ram, i did get mine to recognize 3gb of ram one day when fooling around with two 2gb ddr2 667 mhz sticks but when i took them out it never did it again.

Hi,

Actually you are doing better than you think, According to your MB specs it is only supposed to hold a max of 2GB (1GB per slot). The updated BIOS may be allowing for the additional 500MB.

If you would like to verify, here is a link to the manual for your MB:

See page viii.

RAM MEMORY WONT INSTALL/DOES NOT WORK


It sounds like the RAM you ordered is defective.
I would put the your old ram in and verify that the system boots and operates properly. If it does, then I would send the RAM in for replacement.

I hope this helps,

Thanks for using FixYa,
