RAM has to be

Four 184-pin DDR DIMM sockets

Supports PC3200 (400 MHz) /PC2700 (333 MHz) / PC2100 (266 MHz) DDR DIMM type

Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory module is 1 GB

Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory is 4 GB
It has to be the same.


• If you are replacing a memory module, put the
new memory module in the same memory slot
from which the old memory was removed.
Or
• If you are adding a memory module, install the
new module into the socket nearest the
preinstalled module, and install additional
modules in the next available sockets

Ram problems...msi k8n neo4 platinum and have 2X Corsair CMX1024-3200PT 1GB and 2X Kingston KVR400X64C3A/1G. I can get each pair to work dual channel 400mhz but when I install the secound pair no matter...


You will need to manually set the ram speed, in the BIOS to 333MHz as the board does not support 400MHz in dual channel mode. Also, the slot lay out is every other slot, so you need to put one brand of RAM in slots one and three, then the other brand in slots 2 and 4. The 3GB maybe incomparability in using two different brands. I had this exact board and it was very finicky with RAM. I know DDR is expensive, so you may be stuck with 3GB, but I'd expect some errors. You see, each brand may have different timings the old BIOS cannot pair up between the brands, causing a conflict and causing you to lose out on 1GB of RAM.

Check the manual pages 2-7 and 2-8 for memory configurations.you can get the manual from here: https://us.msi.com/Motherboard/support/K8N_Neo4_Platinum_PCB_1.0#down-manual

What is the max ram speed my pc can take


According to some research, your desktop has 4 RAM slots available. The total maximum RAM your desktop can hold is 2GB (2048MB). Furthermore, each slot can hold a maximum of 1GB (1024) but cannot exceed the 2GB total.
This means you can theoretically install 2 x 1GB RAM DIMMS in 2 RAM slots or 4 x 512MB RAM DIMMS. Both will meet the desktops 2GB limitation.
The RAM specifications for your desktop are as follows:
RAM Limit: 2GB (2048MB) RAM Slot Type: SO-DIMM RAM Type: DDR1 (not DDR2 or DDR3) RAM Speed: PC3200/DDR400 ECC Type: Non-ECC
TIP: The RAM is DDR which means that while you can install them as singles (single-channel mode), the system will see a speed benefit from installing them as matched pairs (dual-channel mode).

What memory can i upgrade to for my system?


The Gateway GT4022 comes from the factory with two sticks each of 512 MB PC3200 DDR 400MHz dual channel, non-ECC memory, for a total of 1GB (1024 MB). You have 4 slots for memory. Each slot can have up to 1GB for a total of 4GB's. You should install the memory in _pairs_ for best performance. Also, when installing in pairs, you'll need to populate the pairs in slots 1 and 3 (_not_ slots 1 and 2 if using only one pair). Slots tabs on slots 1 and 3 are white. The tabs on tabs 2 and 4 are black.
You can go to memory websites like www.crucial.com to get a free scan of your computer to see all the memory options available for your computer.

Want to upgrade memory to 2 GB. Desktop will not post up with 2x1GB cards. Every 2-3 seconds it makes a sound/tone. The fans would turn on but there is no signal to the monitor. However, it will post up...


There is no reset just because you added memory.

If you have 2- 1GB sticks, try both , one at a time.

Your system spec's and manual tell nothing which dimm banks are suppose to be used , and if you can install 2-1GB sticks,
all it says is it can handle 2GB.

Now it says 512MB, sticks, this could mean you can only use 4-512MB sticks to get too 2GB,.

Now it does not tell which dimms are used if you have 2-1GB sticks,

You have 4 slots, the first two and the second two, most times, you either use the second bank of each pair, or the first slot of each pair,
but as I said, your system does not say.

So you can try both ways and see if one of them work.

Sorry I can't be of more help,but you system has a poor manual
on memory placement.

Hi I also have a P4m800-M7 rev 3.1 motherboard and a 512mb of ram.. my question is, is it okay to put another ram but in 1gb size its pc3200, will it work? thanks!!


Hi,

The motherboard supports 2GB maximum memory. 1x1GB in each slot.

Maximum clock speed is 400MHz (PC3200), so the memory module you have should work fine.

Please remember to remove the power cord before installing the new ram.


Regards.

I have a intel 845gvsr board, want to replace a Ram. What type of RAM is suitable for this board?


Your Intel D845GVSR has,

1. Two ram slots.

2.Maximum Amount of ram is 1GB for EACH ram slot.

3.Maximum TOTAL Amount is 2GB, (1GB in each ram slot)

4.Uses DDR Sdram at 400MHz, (PC3200), OR
DDR Sdram at 533MHz, (PC4200)

This is an example of DDR Sdram at 400MHz, (PC3200),

http://www.tigerdirect.com/applications/category/category_slc.asp?CatId=1354&name=PC3200-DDR-Dual-Channel-Memory&Nav=|c:1352|&Sort=0&Recs=10

(Not advertising for this website. There are many places to buy ram memory)
512MB + 512MB = 1024MB, or also stated as 1GB
1024MB = 1GB

Upgrading ram


Hi reisrui, yes it is odd. (It's not the first time I have seen this.)
According to you're manual on page 6, under Specifications. The manual say's you can run up to a Max speed of PC3200 400MHz, 1GB in slot one. In slot 2 you can run a Max of 1GB of PC2700 333MHz in slot 2. Every motherboard I have come across that can run two different speeds of memory. The system will reduce the Max speed to the lower MHz memory speed. If you currently are using 512MB PC3200 400MHz in slot 1 & add 1GB of PC3200 400MHz into slot 2 for a total of 1.5GB of memory. The motherboard will ruduce the total memory over all speed to PC2700 333MHz. Motherboards alway run at the lower memory speed if two different speeds are presant.
I can’t be 100% sure of the 1GB of PC3200 400MHz into slot 2, will run at all! Or if it will be reduce down to 333MHz. I am sure you can run 2GB of PC2700 333MHz, 1GB of memory per slot in you're board for a total of 2GB.

If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.
