If you are talking about dual channel memory, check to be sure that both memory chips are of the same speed, size, and brand.

Hi,

You must be using a USB keyboard. I suggest switch back to PS2 keyboard. Moreover, the system board supports dual channel so you should be using matched pairs plus placing them in the correct slots to enable dual channel mode.
Try this and it should work without any trouble.

Acer official site says:-
Up to 4 GB DDR2 533/667/800 MHz SDRAM
(dual-channel support on four DIMMs)

Try these bus speeds and for dual-channel support read this article :-

Dual-channel architecture requires a dual-channel-capable motherboard and two or more DDR, DDR2 SDRAM, or DDR3 SDRAM memory modules. The memory modules are installed into matching banks, which are usually color coded on the motherboard. These separate channels allow each memory module access to the memory controller, increasing throughput bandwidth. It is not required that identical modules be used, but this is often recommended for best dual-channel operation. It is possible to use a single-sided module of 512 MB and a double-sided module of 512 MB in dual-channel configuration, but how fast and stable it is depends on the memory controller.

If the motherboard has two pairs of differently colored DIMM sockets (the colors indicate which bank they belong to, bank 0 or bank 1), then one can place a matched pair of memory modules in bank 0, but a different-capacity pair of modules in bank 1, as long as they are of the same speed. Using this scheme, a pair of 1 GB memory modules in bank 0 and a pair of matched 512 MB modules in bank 1 would be acceptable for dual-channel operation.

Modules rated at different speeds can be run in dual-channel mode, although the motherboard will then run all memory modules at the speed of the slowest module. Some motherboards, however, have compatibility issues with certain brands or models of memory when attempting to use them in dual-channel mode. For this reason, it is generally advised to use identical pairs of memory modules, which is why most memory manufacturers now sell "kits" of matched-pair DIMMs. Several motherboard manufacturers only support configurations where a "matched pair" of modules are used. A matching pair needs to match in.

Good luck

If I unstall DDR400 memory as as follows: DDR1 & DDR3 : 512MB each DDR2 & DDR4 : 256MB each making 1.5 GB in total, will dual channel technology be activated?


Definitely not. Dual channel technology requires that the 2 RAM modules installed in each bank be of the same capacity, data rate, & even better be from the same manufacturer.

I'm doing a memory upgrade. i have four memory slots, 2 blue and 2 black. i have two, 2g dimms; for dual channel operation do i use the 2 blue slots or the first blue slot and the first black...


Try them in the same-colored slots, nearest the processor. It seems ASUS (who makes your mobo) has chosen to color code their slots so those of the same color enable dual-channel. If you can't tell from the BIOS detection, try CPU-Z to verify that the memory is in the correct slots for dual-channel operation. Putting one in the wrong slot should not damage anything. It would just make it so you can't take advantage of the extra speed.

I'm Confused about Dual-Channel, How to Activate/Enable it?


Check your user manual for the type of memory you can use. If your computer could use dual channel memory, I think it would come that way. Dual Channel is a pair of special compatable memory modules and only come in pairs. To buy two unpaired memory modules and hope to run them as Dual Channel is wishing too much. If they work, you're lucky, but most likely they will not work as dual channel.

If you are using those two different memory modules and they both work for a total of 3 GB then you can not do much better.

I have A am 37 mother board can i use dual channel ram in it


Your board supports two memory sticks totaling 2GB. (1GB each) It supports "PC2100 DDR" and "PC2100 DDR266" (Dual Dynamic RAM) DIMM modules.

Have a hp DC7100 minitower pc with 4 dimms slots currently have 2 512's installed and thougth maybe adding an additional 2gig dim basically filling 3 of the dimm slots is this configuration valid





■The system will operate in single channel mode if the DIMM sockets are populated in one channel only.
■The system will operate in dual channel Asymmetric mode if the total memory capacity of the DIMMs in Channel A is not equal to the total memory capacity of the DIMMs in Channel B.
■The system will operate in a higher-performing dual channel Interleaved mode if the total memory capacity of the DIMMs in Channel A is equal to the total memory capacity of the DIMMs in Channel B. However, the technology and device width can vary between the channels, For example, if Channel A is populated with two 256 MB DIMMS and Channel B is populated with one 512 MB DIMM, the system will operate in Interleaved mode.

Ram support


As much as I would love to spend a couple hours making you a list of Ram that your board supports, not happening.
However you can do this your self by looking in your manual.
Download your manual here:
http://www.giga-byte.com/Support/Motherboard/Manual_Model.aspx?ProductID=1863

Go to the top of page 15.
Your board requires a voltage of no more than 2.5v
GA-8IPE1000 Series includes 4 DIMM sockets, and each Channel has two DIMM sockets as following:
Channel A : DDR 1, DDR 2
Channel B : DDR 3, DDR 4
If you want to operate the Dual Channel Technology, please note the following explanations due to the
limitation of Intel chipset specifications.
1. Dual channel memory cannot be used if one DDR memory modules are installed.
2. If two DDR memory modules are installed (same storage capacity), one must be added to the
Channel A slot and the other in the Channel B slot in order to use dual channel memory. Dual
channel memory cannot function if both DDR memory modules are installed on the same channel.
3. If four DDR memory modules are installed, please use memory of the same storage capacity in
order to use dual channel memory and for BIOS to detect all the DDR memory modules.
We'll strongly recommend our user to slot two DDR memory modules into the DIMMs with the same color in
order for Dual Channel Technology to work.

You board supports this type of memory:

Good Luck & kind Regards.

Ram can works dual channel


you need to make sure your ram is identical.....for example if you have one single/sided and one double sided but are both equal in capacity still may not work.......also you could be using wrong memory slots double check your motherboard manual and ensure you are using correct memory slots for dual channel operation...however memory pair mismatch is most likely your culprit
