    mother board cannot recognise ram

  • malden86 Mar 09, 2008

    I have two 1 Gig sticks of RAM and the MB only recognizes one stick.

    Could I use 1 2 Gig stick instead? I'm also using Windoes XP.

  • greyrabbit Jan 19, 2009

    My K7S41GX MoBo will only recognise a single IGB RAM stick fitted in either DDR slot. When (1GB) sticks are fitted in both sockets only the RAM in slot two is found. I'm running Vista, but is it a Bios or Motherboard limitation/fauly.

Some old mother as that cannot recognize ram more thatn 1 gig. Try just using 1 ram of 1 gig or if you want to upgrade just upgrade it up to 1 gig.

Need upgrade Memory for Intel D865GLC/D865PESO

If you goto and use their memory checker tool you can find out which RAM you need as well as the maximum your motherboard can handle.
Next open your desktop or the section on the base of your laptop where the RAM resides to make sure you have a spare slot and how many slots you have.
It is recommended if installing more than one memory module that you used a matched pair. This is to ensure compatibility. A matched pair is when you buy two of the exact same modules (same spec and manufacturer, model etc.).
Hope this helps,

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

Motherboard memory capacity.

the motherboard will automatically detect it, make sure that you always use the same manufacturer, speed and size ram chips, don't mix and match. Go to this site and run the scanner and it will tell you what you have and what exactly you can put in it.

Graphic card for GA-8IPE1000 series

HI there.
There are loads of makers of memory and graphics cards out there to choose from.
For the ram i would recommend Corsair or Kingston, you can get this ram as a matching pair so the both run at the same speed, the best ram to get is DDR 400.
As for the graphics card, i recommend ATI radeon X1650 Pro 512MB graphics card.
These upgrades will make your machine purr like a kitten with an excellent gaming experience.

Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

Added memory but one memory card (Original) not recognised

OK, according to your RAM does need to be installed in matched pairs.

Here is a link for your computer information:

If you get another 512MB module and install both pair, it should work well.

Only recognises 2 gb when max supported is 4gb...

Is it all the same exact brand of memory, Dual Channel or no ?

You said its 800mhz ram and the mobo supports 600mhz, is it all 800 or 600 mhz or different speeds. Alot of motherboards will kick it down to match the other sticks some might not.

Will not recognize Ram

Insert a pair of memory so you again can see a total memory of 1024GB. Check the slots you have them inserted in. It should be DIMM A-1 & B-1. (Correct)? Remove both & insert the second pair. Use A-1 & B-1 again. Check total memory reported by bios. If you see anything less than 1024GB, that set of memory has an issue. Continue to leave in that set of memory. Go to this link & download memtest86 to a floppy disk & test the memory. You'll find the download section just under the three screen shots.
Each set of dimm's should be placed like so. One matched pair in dimm A-1 & B-1. Second set insert into dimm A-2 & B-2. The bios should see the total as 2GB. Run memtest only while using one set of matched 2x512 memory at a time. If there is a problem with the memory memtest86 will find it.
Though the information should fix you're issue, (or catch some bad memory).
It wouldn't hurt to check if a bios upgrade will help also.
Click on this link & check you're bios version against Asus updates. Please only update if you are sure the update will help.

Good Luck!

8GB G.Skill F2-8500CL5D-4GBPK in Gigabyte GA-P35-DS3L rev. 2.0

If they are not a matched pair it will not work. If you have two sets of matched pairs. Each pair will have to go into the right pairing slot. Example one set you go in slots 0 and 2 and the other in slots 1 and 3. If you have stickers on the memory sticks look for a group of numbers and letters one group will match it's mate.
