Dual chanel problem

First problem - I cant get my 512mb sticks to work dual chanel - pc reboots before the system loads up.
Second problem - if I put four 512mb sticks (all same specs) at the same time I have a black screen and a beeping pc.
What to do, what to do?

    It seems, that one of the slots on the board is broken, since the pc crashes whenever I try to put any stick in that vary slot :/

The beeps your hearing are known as bios beeps. They are telling you there is a problem with your memory. On your board the four dimm slots are split into two groups. A & B. Pg. 19 of your manual. Please read Pg. 21. Remove all your memory & put only two of your 512 Dimms into slot 1 & slot 3. Boot the Pc. Notice any beeps? Check your boot screen to see if bios sees the current memory as matched memory. Shut the Pc down & remove memory, replace with the other 2 Dimms in the same slots. Boot Pc. Again check to see if memory is being seen as matched memory & no beeps. Are you getting the idea here. What we are doing is trying to find which if any dimms may have a problem & which dimms work in which channel. Increase in size to 3 dimms or 1.5Gb in memory till you find a working order with no beeps. If you think 1 or more dimms may be faulty download a free test program called -Memtest86 at this link.
http://www.memtest.org/ Scroll down till you see - ** Memtest86+ V1.70 (01/14/2007) ** all typed in red. Here you can choose what type of bootable file you want. An iso or a zip. You can creat a bootable floppy or a bootable CD.
This should help. If you have trouble & need more information please post back.

    I do not doubt your conclusion but if you take a very strong flash light & include the help of a magnifying glass you can double check that slot for any bent copper connectors. You may even find some lint or dust built up deep within. Take a lint free cloth & add a wee bit of Alcohol & wipe down the copper leads on the dimm. Than do the same with a cotton swab into the slot. Blast it dry with some canned air. Make sure both dimms & slot is dry before reinserting memory. Try again. This may help!

Running a 1 gig stick and a 512mb stick, system only shows 896mb, apparently not recognizing all of the ram installed?


I assume that you've booted the computer with _ONLY_ the 512MB stick installed, and that the computer recognized it (reporting either 512MB or 384MB), i.e., the 512MB RAM is not "defective".

Hmm. 1024 minus 896 is 128.
So, the "integrated-into-the-motherboard" video-card is "stealing" 128MB of your RAM, to be used strictly for "video" purposes, leaving 896MB for Windows to use.

Now, about the "missing" 512MB of RAM.

1. If you have four slots for RAM, and they are physically arranged into two pairs of two slots, rather than four equally-spaced slots, your motherboard is capable of "dual-channel" mode. But, since your two sticks of RAM are not "matched" (size, speed), you _MUST_ insert both sticks into _ADJACENT_ slots (not slots 1/3, nor slots 2/4), in order to run your RAM in "single-channel" mode.

2. If you have two slots for RAM, interchange the two sticks, to see if that makes a difference.

Your system comes stock with one stick of DDR2 (512 MB), which means that it is _ not_ dual channel DDR2 memory as dual channel DDR2 must be installed in matched pairs. Try to exchange the new memory for 2G of some single channel DDR2.

EPoX EP-8RDA+ Pro problem with memory


First try setting your memory voltage in the motherboard bios to 2.5volts if you haven't already and you might try different timings in the bios also for example 3-3-3-8. If that doesn't work try taking out one of the modules and testing them each by themselves in the memory slots of your motherboard. It may take awhile, but you'll rule out the memory slots causing the problem. One of the memory sticks could be faulty. Hope this helps.

Asus K8N-dl - second processor present but not running...


Hi, Mistyman here. All Asus mother boards that have dual channel RAM slot must have equal ram in each slot. In most cases the paired slots are matched by color for easy ID, some are identified by a printed ID on the mother board. With your board you will have to have run all of your RAM for the one CPU. If you have only one stick this must be in slot one. If you are using two sticks then utilise the dual chanel system that ASUS have and use A1 & A3. To activate the second CPU you will need to install matching sticks of RAM in the B slots. both cpu's will need to have the value of RAM to work together properly. CPU one = slot A for RAM CPU two = Slot B for RAM. Goodluck, the ASUS boards are a value product.
