P4PE Motherboard system hangs on 2 memory banks

I have a p4pe mobo with 1007 bios version and a 3,2ghz pentium processor.
I'm using 2 kingston dual channel memory stripes of 1024mb each.
When both stripes placed, sometimes the bios says that there is a error found by the hardware monitor. When pressing F1 the system starts normally. But after a couple of minutes the system hangs, not always but 60% of the time it does.
When i'm using only 1 stripe, the one ore the other i don't have any problems. I've tested both stripes of memory and no problems were found.

I'm hope someone can help me on this one.

Best regards, Norbert - the Netherlands

Yes you can only use 1 stick if over clocking to the 800 fsb if you stay at 533 you can use both. Its referenced on the asus site cpu support. :-)

Re: P4PE Motherboard system hangs on 2 memory banks

You need to check in your bios settings for the amt of physical memory setting. alsoexamin the board for defect. if all that is good then follow the following instructions

1.)Unplug computer
2.)remove memory
3.)switch jp1 to clear ( the jumpewr that clears the bios is called jp1 its located close to the battery and it has 3 pins and 1 jmper) the pin set will be on 1 and 2 , simply set it to 2 and 3)
4.) Hit the power button 5 times to clear all remains of eletricity
6.) replace memory
7.) boot up system
8.) on the main boot screel it should say no bios settings enter setup
9.) enter setup and load optimal defaults
10.) save and exit

2.4GHz 533MHz FSB to 2.4Ghz 800MHz FSB

Yes, you can put any Pentium 4 or Celeronsocket 478 processor in there, including those with an 800MHz FSB onthe processor. Don't waste your time with only a faster FSB unless youjust happen to have one laying around, the performance won't improvethat much. This one is $50 from Newegg.

Upgrading the components is not overclocking. Overclocking is when youforce the components to run faster than they are rated for. Yourmotherboard is set up to allow this, through the BIOS. Severaloverclocking features areintegrated into the BIOS, including the ability to adjust the FSBfrequency, and the Vcore, DDR, and AGP voltages.

If you choose to overclock, be prepared to make frequent changes toachieve best performance vs. stability. I would suggest upgrading yourcooling to the best you can afford as well. Your PC may lock up orrefuse to boot for no apparent reason if you overclock. Be preparedfor that and know what to do about it before you start youroverclocking career.

I bought a 1GB samsung PC2700 DDR memory for P4PE motherboard. After installed it, the PC could not started. Is that memroy compatible for P4PE?

This page lists the type of ram that is compatible with your system, pay close attention to the voltage.

Take the part number from the stick you're trying to install and punch it into Google to see what the exact specs are.You may find that the voltage is different...

Note: I am not affiliated with the linked vendor it's for illustrative purposes only.

It seems like you have done everything right but im not 100% sure that your memory is correct. read through the description here carefully and you will see that this memory comes in two different packages. One of them is the 400 (the ones you bought) and another in the 333 flavor. I am hoping they did not make a mistake and gave you the wrong ones. Look directly at the memory and make sure. I am also including the system manual for your computer. Hope this helps.

Kingston's ValueRAM KVR400/1GR is a 128M x 64-bit (1GB) DDR400 CL3 SDRAM (Synchronous DRAM) memory module. The components on the module include sixteen 64M x 8-bit (16M x 8-bit x 4 Bank) DDR333 SDRAM in TSOP packages. This 184-pin DIMM uses gold contact fingers and requires +2.6V. The product is shipped in retail packaging and includes installation instructions.

2 gigs of ram

Re-check your manual at pg. 1-12. 1.9.1 Memory Configurations.
Since you know one bank of memory works fine in a certain slot. Now try the other in the same slot.
