Re: cache memory

See page 13 of the MANUAL

There is no cache memory on this board.

Usually cache memory is on the processor these days and is known as L1 and L2 cache.

Years ago L2 cache was on the mainboard.

What is the uses of the memory

Depends on what Memory you are referring to, yampratwum

1) Cache for a Processor;

A small memory area on the Processor.
(L1 and L2. Some Processors also went to L3 cache)
Cache operates at the same frequency rate ('Speed') as the Processor.

It is the First memory area the Processor accesses.

2) Ram Memory;

Volatile memory.
Once the computer is turned off, all memory stored in Ram Memory is GONE.
Ram Memory typically operates at half, of the frequency rate of the Processor's Front Side Bus. (FSB)

It is the Second memory area that the Processor accesses.

3) Harddrive; (Hard Drive. Hard Disk Drive)

This is the Third memory area the Processor accesses.

There is also a small memory area on the harddrive.
This is it's Cache. It is called the Buffer.

4) Virtual Memory;

An area on the harddrive that Windows has allotted.
Rule of thumb is Virtual Memory is one and one-half, (1-1/2) the amount of Ram Memory.

2GigaByte (2GB) of Ram Memory?
Typically Virtual Memory will be 3GB.

5) BIOS;
Basic Input/Output System
A program that is flashed to an EEPROM chip. The BIOS chipset.
Another small memory area.

1) The Processor has the fastest memory. It is the Cache.
(L1, L2, and for some Processors, L3)
Operates at the same frequency rate ('Speed'), as the Processor.

It is a small memory area for the Processor.

2) Next is the Ram Memory. Random Access Memory.
Ram memory typically operates at HALF of the Processor's FSB.
It is the second fastest memory on the motherboard.

3) Next after the Ram Memory is the Harddrive.
Harddrive's have a Buffer.
Buffer is a Cache for a Harddrive. A small memory area.
The Harddrive is the third fastest memory.

Five long beeps at a range of five seconds then, repeats

Five long beeps for a modern motherboards indicates a processor failure. If you wish to remove the processor and re-seat it (reconnect it to see if it begins to work again) make sure to get some thermal compound to put between the CPU chip and the heatsink. More info at:
POST AMI BIOS beep codes
  • 1 - Memory refresh timer error
  • 2 - Parity error in base memory (first 64 KiB block)
  • 3 - Base memory read/write test error
  • 4 - Mother board timer not operational (check all PSU to MB connectors seated)
  • 5 - Processor failure
  • 6 - 8042 Gate A20 test error (cannot switch to protected mode)
  • 7 - General exception error (processor exception interrupt error)
  • 8 - Display memory error (system video adapter)
  • 9 - AMI BIOS ROM checksum error
  • 10 - CMOS shutdown register read/write error
  • 11 - Cache memory test failed
  • 12 - Mother board does not detect a RAM module (continuous beeping)

My pc contains 1 gb. of memory with 40 gb. hard drive its quite slow what can i do to speed it up? especially start up very slow

More memory the better. Find out what the max is and put it in. 1 Gb is enough to run Xp (Min 2Gb for Vista).
There a few other things that slow your computer the way you described.
  1. You need memory on the hard drive that your Operating system2_bing.gif is on. I would say 25% or more.
  2. Clear your temporary Internet,cookies and cache from you web browser (IE, FireFox, Opera, Ect)
  3. To many thing running in the background, if you are comfortable with computers (you can use "msconfig" to turn extra programs off)
  4. Defrag your hard drives2_bing.gif
  5. As much memory as you can will always help.
I hope this helps.

Problems with Intel D946GZIS Motherboard

Hi pbkajey, This Asus board will easily handle your 3.4GHz CPU & fully supports 1600/1333/1066/800 MHz FSB.
Suggest this motherboard:
The only catch is this board runs, DDR3 memory. Up to 16GB of Dual Channel memory.

Asus link for the P5Q3 MB:

Asus comes with an impressive three year warranty. Most manufactures support 1 year only.

Here is another Asus board that will run your CPU & DDR2 memory:
Same 3 year warranty. There are two boards that support the 945 chipset below:

Keep in mind you do not have to keep the 945 chipset. The newer boards still support 945 & better.
The choice is your's.

Good luck pbkajey!

A battery on the these boards keeps the values in CMOS RAM active and the real-time clock functioning when the computer is turned off. A coin-cell battery (CR2032) powers the real-time clock and CMOS memory. when it dies or isn't in your cache will read default or 1MB. or: look on the Intel website for a BIOS update, and be sure to physically test your cache to make sure there is no major hardware failure.
