If you are a "gamer" and you have 1GB of RAM, and you have Windows XP, you probably need more RAM.
If you are a "gamer" and you have 1GB of RAM, and you have Windows Vista or Windows 7, you DEFINITELY need more RAM.
Some motherboards support "dual-channel" mode, when you have 2 or 4 _IDENTICAL_ sticks of RAM. What happens is that each byte written to the RAM is "split" into 2 halves; one half is written to the 'A' stick of RAM, while, simultaneously, the other half is written to the 'B' stick of RAM. Obviously, this takes 4 "cycles" of the RAM, rather than taking 8 "cycles", if there was only one stick of RAM. So, your RAM seems to run at "double-speed".
So, when you buy more RAM, either try very hard to "match" your current 1GB stick of RAM, or purchase a "2GB dual-channel kit", or two "2GB dual-channel kits", to upgrade to 2GB (or 4GB) of RAM.
since the Audio card is internal check the bios first maybe its disabled
then on the windows amybe the driver is missing or corrupt try to install again
if any of this will not help you acn install an external card on 1 of the PCI slots
HI there. There are loads of makers of memory and graphics cards out there to choose from. For the ram i would recommend Corsair or Kingston, you can get this ram as a matching pair so the both run at the same speed, the best ram to get is DDR 400. As for the graphics card, i recommend ATI radeon X1650 Pro 512MB graphics card. These upgrades will make your machine purr like a kitten with an excellent gaming experience.
Hi, Chances are good that your third 1gig memory module is faulty. Windows blue screen of death at startup is a typical symptom of faulty RAM memory. Try replacing the third 1gig DIMM with another of the same type. Let me know if this works or not. Regards, Graemevm
Max speed supported for your mobo is: DDR2-533 You will have to buy (4) 1gb sticks (2gb sticks not supported) To use all four gigs of ram you need a 64 bit os.32 bit only supports 3gb of ram. Hope this helps! Here is the specs :
ASUS A8M2N-LA (NODUS-GL8E) (DDR2-533MHz) Memory
4 (4 banks of 1)
non-removable base memory

Memory Speed options: PC2-4200 DDR2-533 240pin SDRAM DIMM
- Motherboard manufacturer's name: ASUS A8M2N-LA
- HP/Compaq name: Nodus-GL8E
*Actual available memory may be less w/o 64 bit os
Problem is you need to install Vista which support 4Gb! Look for specification on Vista you have!! Mostly XP and Vista support 2Gb! The problem is in your OS. 32 OS support max 2Gb of ram they detect you 3gb but they couldn't operate with all!!
