Question about EliteGroup P4M800PRO-M Motherboard

2 Answers


I don't know if this problem was raised before, yet anyways, I have 2 pcs of Kingston KVR / 1GB / DDR400 rams and put it on my ECS P4m800Pro-M motherboard. Yet the system can only see 1GB. I remove 1 ram and the system can only see 512KB.

I don't know what to do anymore. I am planning to update my bios but from the forums that i read, changing bios also pose problems.

What should i do?

I have the same problem on the same motherboard, it has been suggested by the ram manufacturer that chip density on the ram is too high, i am sending back the ram & having it replaced with ram of the same size but twice the no. of chips on each module

It sometimes happen that for some Motherboard or in any computer hardware that has a factory defect. Pheriperals and other clip on hardware much probably does not work, or maybe it works but there's much more possibilty to have / make problem.

Updating the BIOS i think it may not help, try to install the other ram you been using before and if its read the same capacity then its probably your 2KVR has the problem.

Hi! I recently bought a MSI MS-6741 Motherboard and set it up with a AMD Sempron 3100+(754) and 1GB of DDR400 RAM (Kingston KVR ,CAS 3.0) and Installed Vista Ultimate on the 120GB P-ATA IDE drive attached...

The board does support up to 2GB DDR400 RAM (for more info on the board try here).

You might also find MSI's support site helpful (here is link to your specific board that has up to date BIOS and drivers).

As for why your system only sees 512MB of RAM, I am not entirely sure, you could try running 'dxdiag' (just type dxdiag into the 'run' utility), which should give you a more accurate reading of how much RAM you have available. Otherwise, certainly try the BIOS update. If you are still seeing only 512MB afterwards, I would certainly be questioning the reliability the board (if the RAM has tested fine on other systems).

Where do i put he memory

From the manufacturer's web-site:

look at the "green" slots in the picture of the motherboard.
That's where the RAM goes -- note that the RAM has a "notch" that is *NOT* in the "centre" of the stick; so, the RAM only fits *ONE* way into the slot.

On that web-page, it says:

• Supports six memory banks using three 184-pin DDR SDRAMs.
• Supports up to 3GB memory size.
• Supports DDR400/DDR333/DDR266/DDR200 SDRAM
Note: PC3200 (DDR400) maximum 4 banks only.

So, if you buy DDR400 RAM, the maximum is 2GB (2 sticks @ 1GB/stick); if you buy DDR33 RAM, the maximum is 3GB (3 sticks @ 1GB/stick).

Is their a special make of memory card, ie: ddr

According to:

this motherboard has 2 slots for DDR (184pin) RAM,
and supports a maximum of 1GB of RAM per slot.

Note that DDR RAM comes in 3 speeds: DDR266 (slowest), DDR333, and DDR400 (fastest).

Buy the fastest RAM -- if the motherboard cannot run the RAM at "full" speed, the RAM will automatically slow itself down to a speed that the motherboard will support.

CHILL WILL'S (motherboard E210882) WOES!!!

It seems like you have done everything right but im not 100% sure that your memory is correct. read through the description here carefully and you will see that this memory comes in two different packages. One of them is the 400 (the ones you bought) and another in the 333 flavor. I am hoping they did not make a mistake and gave you the wrong ones. Look directly at the memory and make sure. I am also including the system manual for your computer. Hope this helps.

Kingston's ValueRAM KVR400/1GR is a 128M x 64-bit (1GB) DDR400 CL3 SDRAM (Synchronous DRAM) memory module. The components on the module include sixteen 64M x 8-bit (16M x 8-bit x 4 Bank) DDR333 SDRAM in TSOP packages. This 184-pin DIMM uses gold contact fingers and requires +2.6V. The product is shipped in retail packaging and includes installation instructions.

Motherboard ASUS P5RD1-VM ram problem

More people should complain with Asus support. Checking Asus forums, you'll find there's an obvious problem with a PCI-E video addon + 2 used memory slots. In my case, I had 2Gb (1 + 1), mb with bios version 1104, and it worked fine; when I installed a new PCI-E card, the system was very... very sluggish. Now I have uninstalled 1 memory, I'm using only 1Gb of RAM with the PCI-E card, and it's working well.

Again: checking Asus forum, this is a reported problem, and a bios bug... Asus should release a new bios version, but they seem not to bother, as this is a relatively "old' mb...

Different brand of RAM used problem

unfortunately not all ram, even if its the same speed, works on all motherboards. my suggestion is to see which one works by itself by putting just one of the modules in. then get a matching one of the one that works. if they both work individually, then i would go with the kingston, it is the better RAM. hope this helps.
