Upgrade to 400 mhz 2x1GB memory

I purchased 2x1GB memory 400 mhz DIMMS (DE468A-ALC) for my DFI K8M800-MLVF mother board.

When I plug them in the machine doesn't boot.

I believe I got the right memory. Is there some jumper or something to change?

I was(is) running 333 Mhz 2x512mb now

The RAM speed setting should be in the BIOS. Press Del or F2 (whichever shows on the screen) before the Windows sceen comes up. You usually have to press it repeatedly, because there is a short time during startup when the keyboard is not active (and you can't tell). Once you are in the BIOS there will be instructions on how to move around via arrow keys or page up, page down buttons. Look around in the menus - there will be a setting for RAM speed there. If you accidentally change something you are not sure of you can always quit (F10) withour saving changes. Hope this helps.

Hello, First thing I would try is to just install one of the new modules in the DDR1 slot and see if it boots. If it does, go into your BIOS (Use the key I believe.) and set the ?Max Memclock (Mhz)? field (Advanced Chipset Features submenu) of the BIOS to 200. Save & Exit and allow it to boot. Shut down the computer and install the second one. Again go into the BIOS and verify it is detecting both. A second thing to try if that does not work is to install the new modules, and before powering up, reset your CMOS using the jumper between the battery and the AGP slot. If the jumper is on the 1st and 2nd pin, put it on the 2nd and 3rd pin for 15 seconds. Then replace it to the original position. NOTE: Make sure the power is OFF and the power cord unplugged when you do this. You should also press and hold the Power button for 5 to 10 seconds to discharge the capacitors in the system. If this still fails to get you going, you may have high density modules which do not work in all motherboards. Did you get the modules from MS Memory Suppliers? When I did a search for your motherboard it only gave me DDR266 PC-2100 DIMMS as compatible. No DDR400 were listed even though they should be backward compatible. Hope this helps. Thanks for using Fixya. Comment back and let me know your results.

    This system is always messing up. Sorry about the formatting. It wasn't like that when I was inputting it in the reply box.

    I see that it removed the DEL key for getting into the BIOS.

    Hi, i was windering if it was possible to use 168 pins pc133 memory modules instead of the ddr 266 into my P4B266 Motherboard, since they have the same size and work at the same frequency. In the manual,...

    *********** board will suport for 133 bus speed memory.Memory Size is not the matter,what ever you can install in the mother board,may be 128/256/512,but ensure the bus speed .It wont be more than 133 mhz.,then your mobo can not support.If you have SDR 133 bus speed ram you can install .
    *********** board speed is 400 mhz,you can change 478 pin any intel processor,for better performence but the bus speed would be 400 mhz or bellow 400mhz,both will be suported.

    For detail follow bellow the link.

    Hope it will you.

    One long beep two short beeps

    I hate to say it, manish, but this board runs Award bios, and as such, one long and two short indicates a video issue, not RAM. Try reseating your video card, gymnasticsby. If you are not using an add-in card (using the onboard, in other words), disconnect your power cable from the wall, ground yourself on your computers' case, and remove the onboard battery to reset your bios to defaults. You can tweak your settings once you have a functioning display; It's rather tough to accomplish anything if you can't see what your machine is doing.

    RE: mother board not going on

    Hi marlonvig, what type of memory (PC3200? or PC2700) memory are you using? What type in which slot?

    The decription (In you're manual), refering to you're memory can be confusing.
    You're manual says you can use up to 1GB of
    PC3200 DDR400MHz only in Slot 1.
    If you add DDR400MHz into slot 2. The board will not support it. (weird)!
    If you want to reach 2GB of memory. You must use PC2700 (DDR333)MHz. 2x1GB PC2700 = 1GB DIMMS in both DIMM 1 & 2. You're board does not support DDR2 type memory.

    Need you're manual? Download it from this link. Click on it.
