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.

How to install PNY OPTIMA 2GB DDR2 667 MHz memory card in lap top


Turn the computer off.
Remove the battery.
Unplug the AC adapter.
Turn the computer bottom-up.
Look for a few screws that secure a small panel.
Unscrew those screws, and remove the panel.
If you've selected the right panel, you should see your current RAM.
On the LEFT and RIGHT edges, there are small "fingers" that are holding the RAM.
Gently pull those fingers away from the RAM, and it should pop-up slightly, and you should be able to remove the RAM.
Notice that the "notch" in the middle of the RAM is slightly off-centre.
Insert the new RAM into the socket, and gently press down, until those two fingers "click" to grab the new RAM.

Depending on your "old" RAM, you may have:
* one "occupied" RAM slot (1GB), and one "empty" RAM slot;
* two "occupied" RAM slots (512MB/stick).

So, you may have to remove one RAM stick, to expose an "empty" RAM-slot "hidden" under the RAM.
Or, the "empty" RAM-slot may be visible without removing the RAM.

Or, you may have to remove one of the 512MB RAM-sticks, in order to free-up a slot for the "new" RAM.

Replace the cover-panel, and screw it in.
Reconnect the battery.
Reconnect the power-supply.

Start the computer.
Click Start
Point at My Computer
Right-mouse click on My Computer
Choose Properties
It should display your CPU-speed and the "new" amount of installed RAM.

Problems with Foxconn 6100K8MA-RS Motherboard memory upgrade


This is an oldtime POST code memory error. Likely that ram is either installed wrong, bad RAM or the mobo doesn't like one of the memory sticks.

See http://www.computerhope.com/beep.htm.

You must count the beeps.

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.

Maybe one of the memory slot on your motherboard is faulty. Try testing each slot by placing one memory module on a slot and start your pc. If your pc made beeping sounds, that slot might be faulty. Do this on the other slots.

My First RAM Upgrade-Any Tips


Ah you have found out one of the great things about confusing naming standards. Often times, 200Mhz memory is called 400Mhz if it is DDR because DDR stands for "Double Data Rate".

It still operates at 200Mhz speed, but since it doubles the data it is sometimes refered to (wrongly) as 400Mhz.

On the upside, all DDR-I ram is backwards compatible. So there should be no problems. However sometimes different memory sticks dont play well together.

What I would do is this:

1) Shutdown computer, UNPLUG computer - wait 5 minutes
2) Open computer
3) Remove old Ram stick and replace with the new stick
4) Replace cover, plug in and boot to windows.

If everything works fine, then do step 1-2 again, but this time add the old stick you removed before, and place it in the unused slot.

Again check that the computer functions properly. If it does not, remove the old stick.

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.
