Question about MSI K9VGM-V Motherboard

1 Answer

I have only 500 MB DDR II RAM attached to my k9vgm-v motherboard (Kingston, I think). I was going to buy a stick of 2GB DDR2 667 PC2-5300 HP/HYNIX 240pin RAM. I was wondering if this is compatible RAM as I can't get the answer from the manual? Cheers.

Look at the label on your 512MB Ram stick. It should have the proper values noted. Then buy RAM that is the same except for MB. And be sure your computer can "see" the amount of RAM you want to install.
The RAM you plan to buy is for very new, powerful machines. It's a lot cheaper than the older RAM formats, but if your system is more than a year or two old, it will not work.

Can i put 2x2gb ram in k9vgm-v motherboard


It should specs say:
• Supports Dual DDR II 533/667/800
- 2 DDRII DIMMs (240pin / 1.8V)
- Supports a maximum memory size up to 2GB.
Most systems will pick up the 4GB, but Windows 32Bit has a 3GB limitation.

From the information you sent, I can't figure out the exact make & model of your motherboard, but I would guess that it supports a maximum of 2 GB of RAM. So, I would suggst you try to install 2 RAM modules, each of them 1 GB in capacity & see if this works.
From my previous experience, most motherboards with only 2 slots for RAM modules support only a maximum of 2 GB RAM total.

ASUS P5VD2-MX SE recognizes only up to 2500MB RAM


Hi,

Actually you are doing better than you think, According to your MB specs it is only supposed to hold a max of 2GB (1GB per slot). The updated BIOS may be allowing for the additional 500MB.

If you would like to verify, here is a link to the manual for your MB:

P5VD2-MX SE Manual

See page viii.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I have installed 1 GB + 512 MB DDR II RAM, but it read only 1G I have just bought the Corsair 1GB RAM (DDR II 667 MHz, 6400), and installed it in the slot 1 of my motherboard, but it only read as 512 MB. (...


Nowadays, motherboards supports only a selected number of RAMs. You have to read the manual and select from the given models. I am not talking about DDR2 or 667MHz. The manual will state the manufacturer (ex. Kingston) model no (KVR667XXXXXX) etc. Only those stated in the manual will work correctly with your motherboard.

P4vmm2 motherboard


you can add up to 2 gb RAM using either 2 x 184 Pin DIMMs or 2 x 168 Pin SDRAM DIMMs. However that MB does support pc400. The supported RAM speeds are 100, 133, 200, and 266 MHz

You can buy a pair of Kingston 256 MB DDR SDRAM PC2100 (266 MHz) from the kingston website for under $50
part no: KVR266X64C25/256

Kingston is a well known and respected manufacturer of memory.

Memory upgrade problems


Hmm if the pc takes DDR Ram , it should deffently take 512 sticks, have u tried booting the computer with just the one 512 stick ? or try putting the 256 stick in and 1 x 512 stick , test it that way with both sticks , some older computers there is a bios setting for upgrading to higher amount of memory, but in your case with DDR ram i dont think so , i mean it may be worth a shot going into bio's and load optimized defaults , press f10 to save settings, try one stick at a time after that , if still no go , there is a jumper pin on the mother board that u can move over a slot which will restet the bios, if u dont know this jumper pin or where it is, just remove the round battery on the motherboard for 30 seconds , then put it back in , try your new ram then , u will be asked to save settings on boot up , if it still dosent work the ram is either faulty or incompatible, alot of the time with Dell , HP /Compaq desktops there fussy with the type of ram they take, but if u ordered from dell it should have worked !! whats the brand name of the ram u have is it hynix? /HP this brand of ram has alot of issues with compatibility,
