P4M800-M7 presumed memory problem


I have a P4M800-M7 Revision 3.1 MB
when I add 2GB memory (two 1GB DDR 400 DIMMs)
P4 3.1 GHz, running RHEL Linux 4.1.1-52 it acts like it was single stepping down in CPU cycle speed. It works fine with 1.5GB. Something about the 2GB memory that makes it slow step.
All memory modules check out on alternate
machines. When booting into a XP runtime environment it runs with no slowness noted but XP was not really loaded down.

One immediate question is there any known MB problems accessing
2GBs of primary memory.

I have never had a problem with Mobo's supporting 2 GB of memory.

As per the website your mobo supports 2 GB memory.

Memory configurations

You can install 128 MB, 256 MB, 512 MB, and 1GB DDR SDRAM DIMMs into the DIMM sockets using the memory configurations in this section.

• Install only identical (the same type and size) DDR DIMM pairs

using the recommended configurations.

• Make sure that the memory frequency matches the CPU FSB

(Front Side Bus). Refer to the Memory frequency/CPU FSB

synchronization table on the next page.

• This motherboard does not support double-sided 16-bit DDR DIMMs.

• Do not create a three-DIMM configuration in dual-channel mode. The
third DIMM is ignored in the dual-channel operation.

Why won't MB recognise new 2 x 1Gb Memory?

The motherboard does not support 1 GB modules; 512 MB is the maximum the motherboard will recognize. Usually, the computer won't even work if the memory isn't supported but in this case it does.

Thanks and please remember to give this a thumbs up rating.
