Question about ASUS P5S800-VM Motherboard

2 Answers


At first it just only restarted, so I'd opted to change the memory. I'm now using a 512Mb PC400 DDRAM. It worked fine but after a month, it started to hang. Just two days ago, it never turned on anymore. I tried removing and putting back all the cables, IDE and power; the peripherals video, modem and memory; and the processor. But still it didn't work. I checked on the capacitors if there is any leaking or busted but couldn't find one. Is there a solution to this?

Please help.

Power Led Lite? If they don't, then I'm not sure of this.
That DDR SDRAM? PC400? Do you mean PC3200, that's DDR at 400Mhz. If that's the case, the PC3200 may be locked out, or deselected by the system. Why? The system may have found that memory irregular. Try another memory, like PC2700, that's DDR at 333Mhz, that should work in a system rated for PC3200. Check first before trying. Once that memory works, your system should be able to use DDR PC3200 again, I would recommend another memory that what you were using, Different spec from the same Manufacturer or a Different Manufacturer.

Does the CPU fan spin when you press the switch? If it doesnt, short the green wire from the power supply with the black one, If the fan still does not spin, the power supply is bad. If it does, the mother board has a problem.

Please get back after this test.

Installing two ram( ddr400 512mb and pc400 512mb )

If you are referring to computer RAM always put the largest ram module closest the CPU central processing unit

try to keep the same brand and type of ram the same ie: ddr ddr3.......
you will be able to read the ram type on the ram already inside

make sure you secure the ram modules by pressing the levers down firmly at both ends of of there sockets

make sure your computer is turned of before you attempt this
be sure to wear an earth strap before touching anything inside your computer
the ram modules sockets are located near your cpu

If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.

hope this helps you

RAM Problem in intel D915GLVG mainboard

Most likely the pc400 hynix is incompatible with the mother board, or with the memory you are leaving in place. Try using just the pc400 sticks, if you still get system beeps then you are using incompatible memory. You should go to centon, or other memory manufactures wesbsite and look up what is compatible with the mother board and get that memory for the system. My bet is going to be pc3200 memory.

Hope this helps

Jetway MoBo: 2 x 1GB Samsung PC2100 appearing as just 1GB (2 X512MB)


Your post indicating that you are moving up from SDRAM to DDRAM shows that your motherboard is capable of either type (having both type of slots) and therefore would have been a few years old. Having said this, then your MB would have the very early version/compatibility of DDRAMs where/when 512 then was the highest readily available memory.

As most Taiwan manufacturers, Jetway would be publishing specs that are a bit just over rated in terms of their product performance unlike Asus, ABit, AOpen. Additionally, most have been known to be using the same manual for several versions of the motherboard. A similar looking motherboard can come in several versions such as those with internal video while another is an AGP slot; one versions may or may not have built-in Ethernet port. In the same token, a version may have 2 X SDRAM slots + 2 DDRAM slots or 4 X SDRAMs or 4 X DDRAMs. Again, we are talking of the same model number of the motherboard but different versions/revisions.

2 G would be right for the 4 X memory slots versions (at 4 X 512) but since you have the 2 + 2 (2 SDRAM + 2 DDRAM), maximum would only be 1 Gb (2 X 512).

Hope this be of additional help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Asrock K7VM2 Motherboard Memory Upgrade

Some MOBO support different type of memory modules like ddr 400, 333,533 and other, if your computer is working fine with that PC400 it only means that your MOBO is compatible with it. Since you're planning to upgrade the memory just get another PC400 because the memory should be the same to work fine.

DDR & SDRAM supported?

I suggest you stay within your manual specs.
Your boards memory should not use voltage higher than CL2.5
Below is a link for 1Gb dimm DDR266 PC2100. CL2.5
You can also buy two which would take you to the motherboards MAX memory of 2Gb.
