Can't Install RAM in DDR2 and DDR3 DIMM slots

I am not able to add more ram because the machine does not boot when I add memory in the second and third slot. I have tried five memory sticks all pc2100 DDR 184 pin RAM in size 1 GB, 512 MB and 256 MB and all work in the first slot. However when I start adding modules in the second or third slot the machine does not start.

Is any BIOS setting Ithat can effect this. Actually I have 1 GB in DDR1 slot and the machine runs fine.

    I am having a similar problem. I am trying to install 3 sticks of DDR ram in slots 1, 2, and 3, labeled on the board as DDR1, DDR2, and DDR3. I have been able to get the first two slots to work, but when I add 512 to the last slot (total would be 2GB - board max) it does not register all the memory and windows does not boot. Also, I can get slots 1 and 3 to work at the same time. Does that help anybody diagnose the situation?

You cannot use DDR and DDR2 ram at the same time, because its always been like that (ie, no SD and DDR, or SD and RIMM)

What you should do is switch to all DDR2 sticks.

Hello here is the homepage:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/X58%20Extreme6/?cat=Manual

I think you have a ram problem:

1. Please install the memory module into the white slot (DDR3_A1,
DDR3_B1 or DDR3_C1) for the first priority.
2. Due to Intel CPU spec definition, the system will not boot if only
one DIMM is installed into DDR3_A2, DDR3_B2 or DDR3_C2 slot.
3. Due to Intel CPU spec definition, XMP DIMMs and DDR3 2000/
1866/1600 are supported for one DIMM per channel only.
4. You may install varying memory sizes in Channel A, Channel B and
Channel C. The system maps the total size of the lower-sized
channel for the dual-channel or triple-channel configuration. Any
excess memory from the higher-sized channel is then mapped for
single-channel operation.
5. It is not allowed to install a DDR or DDR2 memory module into
DDR3 slot; otherwise, this motherboard and DIMM may be
damaged.

Try only with one module, in the white slot.

Hope this will help you.

What's your problem?bit ix38 quad gt motherboard with 2 gig of ddr2 ram i want to add a 1 gig stick of more ram that ive bought how do i do this? thanks windows seven


Top view of motherboard, scroll down. (Thought you might also like to read the reviews, and Comments)

http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/motherboards/2007/12/06/abit_ix38_quadgt/2

Motherboard User Manual,

http://www.theraptorpit.com/forum/index.php?/forum/124-abit-motherboard-tech-support-unofficial/

1) On the motherboard the Blue ram memory slot that is closest to the copper heatsink, is ram memory Slot 1.
Also known as DIMM 1.

Ram memory ALWAYS has to be in this ram memory slot.
The Processor reads ram memory Slot 1 first.

2) The Blue ram memory slots are Slot 1 (DIMM 1), and Slot 3.
(DIMM 3)
The Black ram memory slots are Slot 2 (DIMM 2), and Slot 4.
(DIMM 4)

To run Dual Channel ram memory, means there are two LIKE ram memory modules ('Stick'), and they are installed in the SAME channel.

This would mean to alike ram memory modules, in both Blue ram memory slots, or both Black ram memory slots.

Since the ram memory modules need to be alike, they are generally purchased from the same manufacturer, and are the same kind.

Running ram memory in a dual channel configuration, is supposed to increase ram memory 'speed', up to 30 percent.

This is Baloney!
May look good on paper, but in actual use in the field it's cr@p.
Actual performance increase is more like 1 to 2 percent.
This has been proven by Tom's Hardware, and many, many motherboards, ram memory, Processors, etc.

So you have 2GB of DDR2 Sdram, huh?
Is it just one 'stick' of ram memory, or are you referring to two 1GB sticks?

If the above holds true install them in Slot 1 and Slot 3.

If not, and it is a 2GB stick of ram memory, be sure it is installed in Slot 1 (DIMM 1)
Install the 1GB stick in Slot 2.

It isn't the same as the 2GB stick.
It is 1GB.
Does NOT go in a dual channel configuration.

(Catching all this? There is NO dual channel ram memory!

It is ram memory that is -> ALIKE, and used in a -> dual channel configuration.
Used in two separate ram memory slots, that support the dual channel configuration.

Sold with the advertising scheme of 'Dual Channel', but really just means the two ram memory modules, (Or four), are -> alike.

1) Same Voltage used
2) Same Ram Timings
3) Same Chip Configuration
4) Same size in amount
5) Same frequency rate ('Speed')

With ram memory in a dual channel configuration, the ram memory modules team up on the task.)

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Is there any way to install more than 2 gig memory?


If the manufacturer stated this maximum, there is no way around it. Get an SSD for a large speed improvement. As for the DDR3 vs DDR2, this is also set in stone. Sorry!

Asrock g31 m motherboard will only post if only one ram slot occupied , will not post if both slots are used , identical matched pair of ram ddr 667 800 mhz crucial ballistix both tested in another ri


I did some research. You didn't say what density the RAM was, but everything I can find on the Ballistix 800 MHZ DDR2 states that it runs at 2.2V. The standard for DDR2 RAM is 1.8V. You motherboard has both and AUTO and manual setting capability for memory (DRAM) voltage. It is possible that the AUTOP feature is not detecting the need for 2.2V, and that with only one DIMM installled, the memory marginally functions, but with the extra loading of the second it will not. Boot the system with the single DIMM, go to the BIOS, and set the DRAM voltage manually to the 2.01V setting (Verify by the part number of the RAM with the CRUCIAL website that is uses 2.2V before doing this). Once you have changed the voltage in BIOS, shut down and add the second DIMM and see if things improve.

Why cant i get my 4x 2gb ddr2 800 to work on my asus p5qc mobo? it will run fine with just 4gb 2x ddr2 800 but when i add the other 2x ram i get black screen at boot


Be sure to check which slots you are putting them in, stay within the same colors as to which needs to be put in.

This may be why, looks like your using DDR2
DDR2 1066MHz DIMMs work only on the black slots for one DIMM per channel. Ensure to install the DDR2 1066MHz DIMMs ONLY on the BLACK slots!

This may be the case for all speeds of DDR2

I have intel dg41rq motherboard with 2 gb kingston 667 mhz in one slot. can i put another 2 gb ram in other slot. if yes then should it have the same specification?


Intel DG41RQ Motherboard has two DDR2 (DIMM) sockets.
It Support DDR2 800 or DDR2 667 MHz DIMMs. Since you already have a 667 MHz RAM, it is recommended that you add another RAM of the same specification (DIMM DDR2 667 MHz)
However, if you add 800 MHz DIMM with 667 MHz, both would perform at 667 MHz. RAMs of different bus speed and latency usually work together but the performance is compromised.
It is always better to have RAM in pairs of same specification.

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

Want to add ddr3 memory to my p5qc board


Hello
The motherboard supports DDR3 1333/1066/800 MHz or DDR2 memory 1066/800/667 MHz to meet the higher bandwidth requirements of the latest operation system, 3D graphics, multimedia, and Internet applications. The dual-channel DDR3/DDR2 architecture doubles the bandwidth of your system memory to boost system performance, eliminating bottlenecks with peak bandwidths of up to 19.2 GB/s.
DDR2 1066MHz DIMMs work only on the black slots for one DIMM per channel
2 x DIMM, Max. 8 GB, DDR3 1333/1066/800 Non-ECC,Un-buffered Memory 4 x DIMM, max. 16GB, DDR2 1066 / 800 / 667 MHz, Non-ECC, Un-buffered memory Dual channel memory architecture When installing total memory of 4GB capacity or more, Windows® 32-bit operation system may only recognize less than 3GB. Hence, a total installed memory of less than 3GB is recommended DDR2 1066MHz DIMMs work only on the black slots for one DIMM per channel. Ensure to install the DDR2 1066MHz DIMMs ONLY on the BLACK slots! Refer to www.asus.com or this user manual for the Memory QVL(Qualified Vendors Lists). When installing total memory of 4GB capacity or more, Windows® 32-bit operation system may only recognize less than 3GB. Hence, a total installed memory of less than 3GB is recommended.

Hi,

Start off by putting the first memory module in DIMM slot 0 this is the slot nearest the processor. DIMM slot 1 is the slost after DIMM 0.

I am using this ASUS (asus M2N-MX nvidia mcp61p chipset


According to the manufacturer's web-site:

http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=0pKBwEIE8tqMT4j7


this motherboard has 4 x DIMM sockets,
supporting a maximum of 4 GB
of DDR2 800/667/533/ Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory

and supports Dual Channel memory architecture.

So, add one 512MB DDR2 533 Mhz RAM into one of the slots,
being sure to leave *ONE* *EMPTY* slot between the two sticks,
in order to enable the high-performance "dual-channel" option.

Try your computer -- it should feel faster.

If you still think that need more RAM, buy two 512MB (or two 1024MB) DDR2 533 Mhz RAM, putting the 2 sticks into the two empty slots.
