    yes it`s from ebay,a mate got it me,by the sounds of this he may become a late mate.

    if i install 1 1gb stick it seems to work but not tested for a long time

    Shouldn't be an issue, this board supports PC3200 up to 2gb.

    Did you but the new memory from ebay by any chance?

    What happens if you only install one of the 1gb sticks by itself?

It's probably high density memory, it's a common problem amongst bargain hunters. There's more about it at the link below:

eBay Guides - Myth Low Density vs High Density memory modules

You'd be better off getting your memory from somewhere such as ebuyer or microdirect.

Hope that helps. Please remember to rate this solution if you found it useful. Thanks for using FixYa,

hlo hyn you should get RAM 200/266 MHz of 512mb or 1Gb

below are the specifications your motherboard can support.

  • Two DIMM sockets supporting 2.5V (only) 184-pin 200/266 MHz Double Data Rate (DDR) SDRAM DIMMs with gold-plated contacts
  • Unbuffered non-ECC DIMMs only
  • Maximum total system memory: 2 GB; minimum total system memory: 64 MB
  • Serial Presence Detect (SPD) DIMMs only
  • Suspend to RAM

Check that your memory is supported, according to Biostar documentation for your motherboard:

Single Channel Mode DDR2 Memory
Registered DIMM and ECC DIMM is not supported

Re-check the memory module's specifications.

Install DDR-DIMM PC3200 to MS-6367 MSI


That motherboard was made for PC2100 DDR266. A PC3200 DIMM *SHOULD* be backward compatible. Depending on the density of the PC3200 memory you might have problems. If you have not bought the memory yet I would go with the PC2100 for sure since the PC3200 will give you no speed gains at all and will be running at PC2100 speeds anyway.

If you already have the PC3200 memory then I would say just give it a shot. The worse case scenario is your machine will not boot up with the higher speed ram installed. Assuming you take all the normal hardware upgrade care and do not physically break anything you can test this memory with no harm to your motherboard.

According to intel:

1.6 System Memory
The Desktop Boards provide the following memory features:
• Two DIMM sockets supporting one of the following10:
 2.5 V (only) 184-pin 200/266 MHz Double Data Rate (DDR) SDRAM DIMMs with goldplated
contacts, or
 3.3 V (only) 168-pin 133 MHz Single Data Rate (SDR) SDRAM DIMMs with gold-plated
contacts
• Unbuffered non-ECC DIMMs only
• Maximum total system memory: 2 GB; minimum total system memory: 64 MB
• Serial Presence Detect (SPD) DIMMs only
• Suspend to RAM


And yes, you can increase the hard disk.

Upgrading RAM


Yes that should not be a problem as DDR is backward compatible with the slower speeds so the faster RAM, will just slow down to match. These are the only conditions listed so as long as the stick you have doesn't fall under this criteria you should be good.

he D845GLVA board provide the following memory features:
  • 2.5 V (only) 184-pin DDR SDRAM DIMMs with gold-plated contacts
  • Unbuffered single-sided or double-sided DIMMs
  • Maximum total system memory: 2 GB; minimum total system memory: 64 MB
  • DDR266/200 MHz SDRAM DIMMs only
  • Serial Presence Detect (SPD)
CAUTION:
Do not use ECC DIMMs with this board. Using ECC DIMMs could damage the board.
Integrator's Notes:
  • Registered DIMMs are not supported.
  • Double-sided x16 DIMMs are not supported.
  • If a full-length PCI add-in card is installed in PCI bus connector 1 (the PCI bus connector closest to the processor), remove the add-in card before installing or upgrading memory to avoid interference with the memory retention mechanism.
  • This board has been designed to support DIMMs based on 512 Mbit technology for a maximum onboard capacity of up to 2 GB, but this technology has not been validated (currently validated up to 1.0 GB) on this board.

Note:
To be fully compliant with all applicable DDR SDRAM memory specifications, the board should be populated with DIMMs that support the Serial Presence Detect (SPD) data structure. This allows the BIOS to read the SPD data and program the chipset to accurately configure memory settings for optimum performance.

Enjoy the increase in RAM,
Lee

Which RAM supports


hi!good pm...hope this will help...

check your RAM,look for stickers that indicates your memory speed & capacity (e.g. 512MB PC400 DDR)...if there's no sticker description count the pin,a DDR has a 184-pin DIMM...

RAM upgrate


you can upgrade to a max of 2gb on that board. These are your 1gb options: 1GB PC2700 333MHz DDR Memory, 1GB PC2100 266MHz DDR Memory, and 1GB PC3200 400MHz Non-ECC Unbuffered 184-pin DDR DIMM Memory. Install a set of any of these and your off and running.
