Question about MSI Microstar KT6 Delta (MS-6590) Motherboard

1 Answer

3x1GB 3200 wont work with kt6delta6590

I have 3 identical apacer 3200 cas 3 modules.
I ruled out defective rams or slots, by trying all combinations.
Bios recognises 3GB but Win XP is started, I get a weird blinking thingy in the upper left corner.
2 GB works fine
3 GB just seems too much.
thanks in advance

GA-7VX memory error


Kingston manufacturer code on side of Ram Memory module, please. Need to know if it's compatible. Post back in a Comment.

http://hothardware.com/Reviews/Gigabyte-GA7VX-Slot-A--VIA-KX133/

Should be;

SDR Sdram at 133MegaHertz. (PC133)
LOW-density, unbuffered, Non-ECC, 3.3 Volt, 64Meg X 64 chip configuration, Cas Latency of 3.

Suspect Ram Memory you bought as the problem; especially if it is ECC, high-density, SERVER computer ram memory, sold on Eb** all the time.

Getting rid of surplus inventory, that NOBODY really wants.

Awaiting reply;

My memory module slot is not working?but the other one is working but i want to fix the defected


1) The ram memory module slots are connected to the motherboard, by Circuit Traces. (Also known as Signal Traces)

Simple explanation of a Circuit Trace is thin, flat, tiny copper wires, that go all over the motherboard.

More in-depth explanation,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Printed_circuit_board

Following the circuit traces on the bottom of the motherboard, and going to that ram memory slot, do you see any breaks, or burn marks in any of the circuit traces?

2) What is the condition of the contact pins in the bottom of the ram memory slot? (Flashlight is needed, and maybe a magnifying glass)
Corroded, or damaged contact pins?

3) All of the above is assuming, you have tried using a different ram memory module, in the defective ram memory slot.

A ram memory module with 'corroded' gold plated contact pins, will not make a good contact in the ram memory module slot.

(Use a pencil eraser to clean the contact pins of the ram memory module. BOTH sides.

If using an eraser that is on the end of a pencil, and not a solid eraser, refrain from letting the metal band on the pencil touch the gold plated contact pins.

Handle the ram memory module by the BODY.
The Body is everywhere on the ram memory module, except the gold plated contact pins on the bottom.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Generic_DDR_Memory_%28Xytram%29.jpg

The Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.
Refrain from touching the gold plated contact pins.

Use air to remove the eraser dust before reinstalling. You can use a can of compressed air for computers, if available, or air pressure from your mouth will be sufficient.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

My computer does not work with two 2GB RAMs


I think, one, out of the two is defected. Make pair with other memory or try changing the slots and vice versa. And for dual channel memory mode, you must installed two identical memory. I mean sizes and makes may different, but bandwidth should be identical to each other.

# of RAM slots


There are two models for this type of desktop, the first having only two DIMM slots, but that takes PC2700 Ram, you have stated that yours takes PC3200 which would make it the second model in which case your model has (4) DIMM slots, each slot is capable of holding a 1 GB stick of ram for a total of 4 GB. Your RAM specification is DDR PC-3200

Memory won't add on a Gigabyte GA-6VEML


Hi,
this will be dependant on the bios version. or if the 2 ram modules are identical or not. if they,re a matched pair. the motherboard may not like or run in dual-channel mode. sometimes adjustable in the systems bios. the other suggestion, is to try 1 stick of ram, in each slot individually. This will eliminate A Faulty Slot. Failing any Of The Above. try 2 x 256mb sticks, And Obtain The Latest Bios Update from The Manufacturers Website.

Can gigabyte 845 motherboard support 2gb ram


HI,
Yes the board should be able to support 2GB of RAM.
If there are 2 DIMM slots on the motherboard then it will support 2x2BG in each slot.
If there are 3 DIMM slots then the motherboard will support 3x1GB in each slot.

Intel D915GAV won't boot after installing CPU fan and RAM. Drives and fans spin, but no video or USB. No error beeps/messages.


Here are some questions and some things to try.

Is this a new motherboard or are you upgrading ram etc?
If it used to work then change things back to the way they were then change things one at a time until it stops working again.

I don't think the CPU fan would be the cause but you never know.

My guess is that the RAM is the wrong type or speed.
Sometimes if all the RAM modules are not identical you can also have problems.

If the ram is not all identical try different combinations of modules.

Have a read of your motherboad manual to see what the rules are for populating different banks.
If you don't have the manual you can normally find them online.

Pc5300 on pc3200 slot to upgrade msi 845gvm-v


PC5300 or more correctly "PC2-5300" and can work in a system that has "PC2-3200" RAM, and if mixed, they will operate at the speed of the slowest module. "PC-3200" RAM, however, is not compatible. PC-3200 is DDR SDRAM, having 184 pins. PC2-3200, and PC2-5300 are DDR2 SDRAM, having 240 pins. DDR and DDR2 modules are the same length,
but the pins on DDR2 are smaller and the keying notch is in a slightly different position.

You need to get the replacement ram all the same type ie - DDR or DDR2

And yes your motherboard should accept 2GB max

Why does my comp didn't run Dual channel ?


Go into your BIOS and activate dual channel mode.

please also note that several motherboard required you to put the modules in certain slot configuration (such as in slot 1 and 3 or 2 and 4) but if you got only 2 slot then forget about this slot configuration.

Radeon graphics card and 3rd RAM slot conflict


I thought this board looked familiar to me. I recall some rules for the memory cards. Do all your memory cards meet this requirement:

Supports up to 3GB PC1600/2100/2700/3200* DDR SDRAMs

If you are using DDR 400 you can only use 1 slot.

What kind of memory are you using?
