OS won't work with RAM upgrade

I upgraded to 1g RAM with PNY DDR PC3200 400/333/266 stick, OS wouldn't run until I removed the 512m stick already in the first slot. Things worked fine, until I decided to add another identical 1g stick to other slot, now OS will not run. Are there any settings I can change to make this combo work?

Re: OS won't work with RAM upgrade

Hi !
if u wanna upgrade RAM ,ur RAM should be of same capacity in both slot. i mean to say if u wanna use 1 GB....then put 512 & 512 or else put single 1 GB. But u cant use 512 in one slot & 1 GB in another slot at a time. if u do the combination like that ,it will never work.

I have this ASUS P4GE-MX Motherboard. I want to upgrade my ram from DDR 256 MB TO DDR 1 GB. For temporary purpose, I tried another 256 DDR ram with 400 MHZ, but I had some problem with booting my system....

Hello, The Motherboard's specifications mention that it uses DDR Ram, while the FSB runs at 400MHz. That means that any kind of DDR memory will work up to the maximum of 2 GB (it has 2 slots, so it's up to the max of 2x1GB DDR sticks).
There's no issue with the speed, actually the faster you can get the better results you will have. Try looking for 1GB DDR 400MHz (preferably two of them, if you want to max out the capacity and since it's kind of cheap to do so).
The one you tried and didn't work, might be due to a faulty RAM module.

I have an asus k8v-mx motherboard running only 512 mb of ram what type of ram would suit this mother board and could i fit a 1 x 2mb ram instead of 2 x 1mb?

Dear Sir,

*********** board is Asus old p4 Mother board.It supports maximum 1GB RAM of DDR 400(DDR1). According to your post your computer having only one 512 MB working RAM. If you want good purformance you can upgrade your computer by purchasing another 512MB DDR400 RAM and install it on another RAM slot.If your computer have only one working RAM slot,you can purchase 1GB DDR400 RAM & install it on older RAM place. I think it solves your problem.if you have any problem come back with more information. I will try to assist you more accurately.

good luck

Radeon graphics card and 3rd RAM slot conflict

I thought this board looked familiar to me. I recall some rules for the memory cards. Do all your memory cards meet this requirement:

Supports up to 3GB PC1600/2100/2700/3200* DDR SDRAMs

If you are using DDR 400 you can only use 1 slot.

What kind of memory are you using?

Upgrade from 512MB to 1GB

The specs on the memory are correct, so you purchased the correct type of memory for this motherboard. If your getting no video when you power on with the 1gb stick, I would be willing to bet the 1gb stick is bad. Can you return it and try another stick?

Upgrade of ram

Your board Support 168-pin SDRAM DIMM and 184-pin DDR DIMM (Can't Use DIMM & DDR SDRAM memory Together).
I would run the 184-pin DDR. Supports PC1600/PC2100 DDR DRAM up to 2BG Max. Since you have four memory slots 2x512mb of DDR PC2100 = 1GB would be plenty. You will notice programs load faster & games run smoother. Personally, 2Gb. may help but you will not see the difference. To see a difference it is not all about memory. Mb bus speed, CPU, chipset & speed of video memory all play a part with regards to Pc overall speed. You can download your manual here.:

This should all help you decide, best wishes!

RAM upgrate

you can upgrade to a max of 2gb on that board. These are your 1gb options: 1GB PC2700 333MHz DDR Memory, 1GB PC2100 266MHz DDR Memory, and 1GB PC3200 400MHz Non-ECC Unbuffered 184-pin DDR DIMM Memory. Install a set of any of these and your off and running.

My First RAM Upgrade-Any Tips

Ah you have found out one of the great things about confusing naming standards. Often times, 200Mhz memory is called 400Mhz if it is DDR because DDR stands for "Double Data Rate".

It still operates at 200Mhz speed, but since it doubles the data it is sometimes refered to (wrongly) as 400Mhz.

On the upside, all DDR-I ram is backwards compatible. So there should be no problems. However sometimes different memory sticks dont play well together.

What I would do is this:

1) Shutdown computer, UNPLUG computer - wait 5 minutes
2) Open computer
3) Remove old Ram stick and replace with the new stick
4) Replace cover, plug in and boot to windows.

If everything works fine, then do step 1-2 again, but this time add the old stick you removed before, and place it in the unused slot.

Again check that the computer functions properly. If it does not, remove the old stick.
