Thing you need to know:

  • how much ram can the board take (you can't put more in)
  • the type of ram (sod,sdram,ddr,ddr2) speed is less importantas it will drop back to the slowest chip.
  • look in the motherboard manual to find out
  • search internet if you do not have the manual
  • static electricity can kill electronic compomants so ensure you have earthed yourself before going into the box or handling the chips (this is a bit late but educational)
sometimes you need to go into the bios (change nothing but "save on exit) the system should see the new ram
good luck

Got an AsRock P4i65G mobo and bought 2 gig RAM for it. However, I have bought ECC memory by mistake instead of Non-ECC. PC wont boot with the new RAM. Is there any way I can get this to work such as with...


Hi, you can download a manual here:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?model=p4i65g

Your mainboard DOES NOT SUPPORT ECC RAM.
This ram type is ONLY intended for servers
or mainboards that are compatible for that ram type.

This is what your mainboard supports:

Dual Channel DDR memory technology
- 2 x DDR DIMM slots
- Supports DDR400/333/266 non-ECC, un-buffered memory
- Max. capacity of system memory: 2GB

Use only the asrock site when upgrading the bios.
And a bios upgrade does not supports the ecc ram anyway.

Hope this will help you.

What kind DDr memeory should i look for on my old P3 Direct desktop?


It depends on how old it is. it is has 256 mb in each slot then it probably could upgrade to 512 mb in each slot, if it has 512mb in each slot it probably could upgrade to a gig. if it only has SD ram in it though, you can't upgrade to DDR.

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

I have upgraded my k7s8xe with athlon xp 3200 cpu. I have adjusted the jumpers to fsb 200 & installed 1gb ddr 400 ram. system keeps rebooting os vista enterprise. any suggestions. also can i install 2...


First of all, if your FSB is set to 200mhz, the system will not support DDR400. "CPU at FSB 200MHz mode, it will NOT support DDR400". The FSB will have to be either 333 or 400mhz in order to utilize DDR400. Only 1GB of DDR400 is supported. As to your rebooting issue, could be because of these incompatibilities and/or you did not properly seat the heatsink/fan on the new CPU, which also means you might not have properly applied thermal compound or might have no applied it at all. All the compatibility information for this motherboard can be found at: http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?Model=K7S8XE

Memory confusion different readings


It sounds like something isnt working right, what operating system are you using, Vista? I would take out the original 512 and see what it says after, often ram isnt compatible if it is too different in size and speeds. Also, if your motherboard supports dual channel ram and you have the extra 512 chip it wont run in dual channel mode, you would run better with just the 2 chips then the added 512 chip.

RAM cuantity


The motherboard you mentioned supports DDR1 RAM.

For windows xp and general application 512 MB is enough.
But if you use memory intensive applications like image/video editing then you can opt for 1-2 GB RAM.

System wont rec memory addition 512 mb addition to existing 512, it only shows 512mb on board, Have a ARock k8upgrade VM800 mb. What can I do? Thank you Ben


well the first thing to check is to see how much ram your board can take,look in your mobo manual , it will not recognize anything above.
it also must be the correct ram ie sdram.ddr,ddr2,sod
search on the net if you do not have the manual

if all is correct, when you boot up go into the bios (dont change anything) then exit "saving changes",this may solve your problem
to go into the system bios you need to hit a key when booting up ,sometimes its Delete, but it will show on the screen as you boot what key you need to use.

good luck
