    I'm sorry I forgot to mention EPoX customer support is ****. Even though I thought I was good, I did as you instructed but in-fact I do have the most updated chip set drivers and bios. I would like to mention your willingness to help and support is outstanding. What is going on is I cant even get it to post when ram is in dual channel config. with the 4400 x2 just beeps & error code C1 I have tried all possible configurations, it will only boot in single chan. But seems to run OK ( 8450 3D Marks @ 2.6 ghz single chan.) I put the 3800 X2 back in and runs fine in dual channel (8230 3D Marks @ 2.4 ghz dual chan.) Also the 4400 x2 runs dual chan. fine in my wifes HP, WTF?? All I can think of is that either the board or bios dosent support the 4400, I just cant figure out why....grrr...lol

You can update your chipst nVIDIA nForce4 SLi.
This is not a easy task. It requires you to download the proper drivers. nForce will do this for you by checking your current system. Click this link to nForce:
http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

Do not update your system by doing an install. You will have to remove the current nForce devices manually through device manager. (DO NOT restart your PC untill you have replaced the nForce drivers with updated nForce software).
If you do, you'll find your going to have to do a complete reinstall of windows & you will loose your current data.
Updating your ssocket 939 will run better. Your dual channel should post after update. It was a waste searching EPoX for faq's. Couldn't even download their/your manual. Please read recommended files to help with the update, these are worth every minute. (I learned the hard way).

Good Luck & Kind Regards.
& please vote.

Lost a program after removing a RAM memory stick. How to restore it?


If the program was hard written to your hard disk drive then the chances of it "vanishing" after you remove a ram module is practically nil. I've seen weird thing like this happen before so Id probably start by scanning your system for virus's , spy/mal ware etc if you download a lot of free junk from the web. Was there a reason you removed the ram module in the first place?

The manual for your motherboard states:

For dual-channel memory configuration (2), you may:

• install identical DIMMs in all four sockets OR

• install an identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A1 and DIMM_B1 (yellow

sockets) and another identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A2 and

DIMM_B2 (black sockets)

* Always use identical DDR2 DIMM pairs for dual-channel model. For

optimum compatibility, we recommend that you obtain memory modules
from the same vendor.

My 880GM-E41 motherboard says my Kingston HyperX 8GB (2x4GB) 1600MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 DIMM XMP X2 Grey Series is running at 667 mhz or somthing, but i know it can be overclocked to 1600mhz, how is this...


Rather than '1600' Mhz, it's capable of using DDR (Double Data Rate) RAM at '800' Mhz.
The "double" rate provides 2 bits per cycle, resulting in a rating of 1600 for the RAM.

The RAM that you're currently using is '667', not '800' Mhz, rated.
Buy RAM that is rated at '800'.

Nforce4-a939 board ,my system shows single channel 64 bit but on perchasing it was dual channel 128 bit how can i fix it......


The 128-bit mode is achieved by putting _matching_ sticks of RAM in the RAM-slots. Non-matching RAM will run as "single-channel" (64-bit) mode.

Matching RAM must have the _same_ amount of RAM per stick,
and the same internal "timing" parameters (look closely at the RAM for strings like 3-2-2 or 2-2-2-2).

If you have exactly 2 RAM slots on the motherboard, matching RAM will always run in "dual" mode.

If you have matching RAM, and you have 4 RAM slots, put one stick of RAM in slot #1, and one in slot #2, and leave #3 and #4 empty. Start it up, to see if it is using "dual" mode.

If not, shutdown, power-off, and move the RAM from slot #2 to #3, and start it again. This time, it will run in "dual" mode.

Asus M2N-MX Motherboard 4gb Ram wont work


I had the same problem and ASUS tech support was of no help. I did however find the culpret in the BIOS setup. Go to Advanced, Chipset, NorthBridge Chipset, and Memory Configuration. Set the Bank Interleaving to Disabled and save the settings. Check these settings also while you are there:
Channel Interleaving = Auto
Enable clock to all DIMMS = Disabled
Memory Tristate = Disabled
Memory Hole = Enabled
Unganged Mode = Enabled
Power Down Enable = Enabled
Power Down Mode = Channel

won't boot into fresh installation of xp pro on raid0 drives I performed a fresh installation of windows xp pro on raid0 drive array. the entire process goes without a hitch...until windows is completely loaded, and its time to actually boot into the operating system to continue with chipset and other driver loading. I get the normal posting and system info screen, goes on to screen "detecting array, healthy Nvidia RAID", continues to screen looking for boot device, verifying dmi pool, boot from CD?..., then proceeds to a notification and selection screen: "start windows normally", safe, ... That's it. I will not boot into Windows normally, nor into SAFE mode. It will cycle through the above 3 screens until I just shut it down. I have gone through this process 4 times (format & reload), thinking that some BIOS settings were overlooked on the previous attempts. I have SATA ports and RAID enabled in the BIOS. I've checked several times to make sure that they remained. Windows will install and run normally on a single SATA drive. I only have this problem when I stripe it. Incidentally, I had reloaded this computer 2 times previously, without any problems with the RAID. Further, this is a RAID floppy taken from the original MB CD, not something new to the system hardware. I feel like there must be something stupid-simple that I am overlooking. But I have been unable to find the answer. System: Epox 9NPA+SLI, 2GB PC3200, 2x80GB Seagate SATA2 drives, AMD FX55 cpu, Evga PCIx video card 7900GTS, Aopen DVDRW Any help you can offer will be greatly appreciated. Regards, Rick Stacy
