Question about Gigabyte GA-K8VM800M Motherboard

PNY memory problems

Ram A: PNY 1 gig @ 200mhz
Ram B: Crosair 512 @ 200mhz
Ram A in both ram slots will not work. Computer starts up but restarts after it reaches windows load screen.
When I use both ram A and B in either ram slots, computer works but memory reads at 166
I have tried ram A on a separate computer and it works individually and reads at 200 mhz
My bios is up to date
is my problem because the gigabyte k8vm800m cant run ram A at its native speed?

Sounds like its a ram frequency mismatch to be honest

altho they are both 200mhz there is a mismatch occurring

I have e-machines T5026 with an Intel Corporation D915GAG mother board which currently has 1.5GB Dual-Channel DDR @ 133MHz (3-3-3-8). I am trying to add 1 gig of PNY RAM, #MD1024SD1-400. When I installed...


You may be using the wrong parity or out Latency ram. if they are not similar in latency they will not work in tandem. Make sure both of the ram's are the same MHZ and CS latency. Also, you may have bad ram as well. Try using the new ram first to see if the computer posts, if it does, input the old ram in the second slot, and if that doesnt work, the ram is not compatible with each other.

Hi,

Start off by putting the first memory module in DIMM slot 0 this is the slot nearest the processor. DIMM slot 1 is the slost after DIMM 0.

DDR2's only showing half installed RAM


IF THE SYSTEM SAYS YOU HAVE 1GB RAM THAN YOU HAVE 1 GIG OF RAM, EVEN THOU SOMEONE TOLD YOU YOU HAD 2-512MG=1GB.

HERE IS HOW I SEE WHAT YOU ARE SAYING YOU HAVE 2-DDR-2 1 GIG STICKS THAT MEAN IF 1 IS INSTALLED THAN YOU HAVE 1 GB AND IF YOU COULD GET 2 STICKS WORKING TOGETHER THAN YOU WOULD HAVE 2GB RAM.
1 CHIP SET = 1GB RAM
2 CHIP SET = 2GB RAM

YOU MOTHERBOARD MAY NOT ALLOW THAT MUCH RAM, OR WHAT I MEAN THE BIOS MAKE UP THE AMOUNT OF RAM.

TO RULE OUT ANY BAD CHIP SETS OR GOOD RAM OR BAD RAM.

TAKE THE PEACE OF RAM THAT IS WORKING OUT AND REPLACE IT WITH THE OTHER PEACE AND SEE IF IT WILL RUN.
IF IT WORKS THAN LEAVE THAT ONE IN PLACE AND INSTALL THE SECOND PEACE IN THE SECOND SLOT.
IF BOTH CHIP SET ARE GOOD THAN BOTH SHOULD WORK OKAY TOGETHER.
IF THERE IS A PROBLEM, IT MAYBE SOME DUST IN THE MEMORY LOTS
OR THE SLOT MAYBE DAMAGED.
OR
THE CHIP DESIGN LAYOUT MAYBE THE OPPOSITE SIDE, THIS MAY MEANS THE CHIPS MAY FACE EACH OTHER, OR FACE OUTWARD FROM EACH OTHER.

One of the ram isnt recognised???


This is likely a memory timing incompatibility. You can go into the BIOS settings of many motherboards and set the timing specifically for each RAM slot, but without knowing exactly which piece of RAM you have I can't tell you what to set it at. You could use the utility CPU Z, install one stick, run the utility and write down all the memory information, then install the other stick and write it down too. Then go into your BIOS and see if you can set all of your specifications to match the memory.

Of course if you could find someone to swap sticks with that would be easier. Some motherboards are more picky than others about which sticks they work well with, name brand manufacturers are more picky than aftermarket in general.

RAM Recognition 835GM PC Desktop


the memory is dual channel, so you have to use matched memory for it to work 1gig in each slot if possible, check the 1 gigs and 512's to see if they run at the same bus speed, if they are not matched there is your problem try a gig and a 512 in slot 0 to see if it picks the memory up, also there is sometimes an option in the bios to dissable dual mode

Upgrading acer laptop RAM


Hi,
You Can Actually Upgrade This To 2 Gig Memory.
Each Slot Will Take 1 A Gig Strip.
I,d suggest Buying another 256 mb Strip, To Put Into Slot 2.
Or Buy a 512mb ( Half Gig ) Which Will Give you 750mb With your Existing Strip Already In There. ** Recommend 1 Gigabyte Max** 2 gig of Ram in This Baby Would Probably Start Glowing.
You Can Buy DDR/266/333 In 256/512/1 Gig Strips. These Are Commonly Known As SD-RAM-Modules.

Ram upgrade


It's generally not a good idea to mix sizes as your more likely to get problems, but that said it probably should still work it's most likely your configuration consult your motherboard book as to what order you should install the memory you have.
