The obvious are that it's bad or not seated right. The first thing I would try is moving the new stick to a different slot.

I want to extend the RAM memory on my NEC computer. The motherboard is a GA-8SIMLNF Rev.1.1. It has two memory slots and presently one slot is occupied with a PC2100U-20330-A1 256 DDR 133 CL2 memory. I...


Check your manual (Gigabyte will have the manual on their website), to make sure your motherboard can handle 1Gb of Ram, or more. Generally in my experience, medium aged motherboards handle 1GB per slot, max (mine uses PC3200, not PC2100, and will take up to 4GB in its 4 slots).

You'll want PC2100 ram (easily searched for on http://www.newegg.com), either in 2x512MB sticks, or a single 1GB stick for your open slots (bringing you up to 1.25GB).

Want to upgrade memory to 2 GB. Desktop will not post up with 2x1GB cards. Every 2-3 seconds it makes a sound/tone. The fans would turn on but there is no signal to the monitor. However, it will post up...


There is no reset just because you added memory.

If you have 2- 1GB sticks, try both , one at a time.

Your system spec's and manual tell nothing which dimm banks are suppose to be used , and if you can install 2-1GB sticks,
all it says is it can handle 2GB.

Now it says 512MB, sticks, this could mean you can only use 4-512MB sticks to get too 2GB,.

Now it does not tell which dimms are used if you have 2-1GB sticks,

You have 4 slots, the first two and the second two, most times, you either use the second bank of each pair, or the first slot of each pair,
but as I said, your system does not say.

So you can try both ways and see if one of them work.

Sorry I can't be of more help,but you system has a poor manual
on memory placement.

I have a intel 845gvsr board, want to replace a Ram. What type of RAM is suitable for this board?


Your Intel D845GVSR has,

1. Two ram slots.

2.Maximum Amount of ram is 1GB for EACH ram slot.

3.Maximum TOTAL Amount is 2GB, (1GB in each ram slot)

4.Uses DDR Sdram at 400MHz, (PC3200), OR
DDR Sdram at 533MHz, (PC4200)

This is an example of DDR Sdram at 400MHz, (PC3200),

(Not advertising for this website. There are many places to buy ram memory)
512MB + 512MB = 1024MB, or also stated as 1GB
1024MB = 1GB

Can I add 1GB memory chip in 2nd slot with a 512MB chip in 1st?


You can upgrade by inserting a 1GB PC2100 DDR SDRAM DIMM. I would put the 1MB in the first slot and move the 512MB chip to the second slot.
The 1GB should cost around $40.

Memory upgrade issue


Most ram has to go in pairs. Buy another stick of the 1GB, and it will run fine.

Upgrading ram


Hi reisrui, yes it is odd. (It's not the first time I have seen this.)
According to you're manual on page 6, under Specifications. The manual say's you can run up to a Max speed of PC3200 400MHz, 1GB in slot one. In slot 2 you can run a Max of 1GB of PC2700 333MHz in slot 2. Every motherboard I have come across that can run two different speeds of memory. The system will reduce the Max speed to the lower MHz memory speed. If you currently are using 512MB PC3200 400MHz in slot 1 & add 1GB of PC3200 400MHz into slot 2 for a total of 1.5GB of memory. The motherboard will ruduce the total memory over all speed to PC2700 333MHz. Motherboards alway run at the lower memory speed if two different speeds are presant.
I can’t be 100% sure of the 1GB of PC3200 400MHz into slot 2, will run at all! Or if it will be reduce down to 333MHz. I am sure you can run 2GB of PC2700 333MHz, 1GB of memory per slot in you're board for a total of 2GB.

If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.

2x 1GB Memory doesn´t work


Don't try to put your 512MB-RAM, remove it and put only 1GB both with rearest slots to each other.

As per your board specification you can upgrade upto 3GB. but all three memo-stick must be of same size, same type and same frequency.
