Mmm thats something hard to figoure out... memory can be failing and it does not matter that you can dettect it one by one... so with that info is impossible to know whats happening... what I can tell you is that if you are running windows XP... you will waste 4 GB cuz XP can only manage 4 giga in good shape... the rest will not be much usefull...

for now try this and if it does not work come back with more info please...

1. Just connect only the basics... motherboard, cpu, vga adapter and power supply, nothing else.

2. Make sure the BIOS config is OK, read the manual to find any missing pieces on that matter. Check the jumpers part very carefuly... Your motherboard manual will tell you about RAM configuration posibilities and perfect matches.

3. Put ONE DIMM in the first slot, if it works turn off and try that same dimm in all slots... do that with all dimms and you will know if all dimms are at least booting and all slots are working at least to boot (which does not means everything is perfect) Motherboards can and will fail "whenever they want"...

if something fails you clearly have some kind of hardware problem either compatibility or unknown failure.

4. If every piece is working just install 2 GB and boot... then the 3rd and well... while you can.

Finally if you succeeded in every point before and you still have problems... its likely you have a harware issue...

Good luck

If you are using windows 32 bit o/s it can only see between 3 & 3.5 gig no matter how much you put in, vista 64 bit o/s can see more.

check that the memory is the same all ECC or not
do not mix them.
if they are all the same ,put them in then bootup and go into the bios then exit save changes (none done),
it may be ok then.

good luck
Terry

My msi pm8pm mb doesn't accept 1gb memory pc667 its accept only 256mb pc533, what i need to do to accept 1 gb memory, pls help me!!!!!! tnx!!


Your MB can take a max of 2 GB RAM. And it has to be DDR SDRAM. So, please ensure that it is compatible. Then only would it accept the RAM SIMM else it may damage the mother board. or the RAM itself.

Memory channel mode


Hi shinde32, you should know that dual channel memory should be bought as a pair. Your board has two DIMM slots as you mentioned. The board can handle up to 2GB max memory, as you have mentioned. What you do not seem to know is it is required to use the same amount of memory is each slot. See the bottom of page 55 in your manual. (Do you need the manual)? Download at this link;
http://download.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d102ggc2/sb/d4798502_en.pdf
There is not a bios setting where you can enable or disable memory channels. The bios configures the memory automatically. Intel has a list of memory tested & passed for the D102GGC2 Mb. You can see that list at this next link.
http://www.intel.com/technology/memory/ddr/valid/DDR2_sodimm_results.htm
Bottom line, both DIMM slots should have two 512MB DIMMS or two 1GB DIMM's. (Like this memory);
http://www.bzboyz.com/ProductDetails.asp?ProdID=18112

https://www.thefind.com/computers/info-spd-dual-channel-kit-memory
This is what your search would look like,
"1GB x 2 DDR2 dual channel 533MHz SPD memory".
The Certified "SPD" is important for Intel MB's.

Good luck shinde32!

I have a problem with my ram


That motherboard does not have a video circuit built-in, so the video sharing the system RAM does not make sense.

Have you checked the valid system memory configurations in your MSI manual pg 2-7 ?
Any chance that the bios is set for dual channel and you don't have equal chip sizes in the dual slots? Example : In dual-channel mode, equal size chips would go in slots 1 & 3 and in 2 & 4

Defective RAM is a possibility also.

Note1: Per MSI, all ram may not register correctly in windows unless 4 of the 2GB chips are used

2 x 1GB Samsung PC2100 appearing as just 1GB (2 X 512MB)


Hi Patrick,
I see you're point. I know this, you can not run "more than" 512MB in any DIMM slot. That is shown at the bottom of page 10 & the top of page 11. You can not run both types of memory at the same time, even though the chart looks like you could. The description term on page 10, states; Users only can install either 168-pin SDRAM Module or 184-pin DDR DRAM Module at one time. (You can't run both). You can run 4x512MB in all banks using184-pin DDR SDRAM. Or you can run 4x512MB in all banks of 168-pin SDRAMs. Total of 2GB.
So you can not run 1GB of memory in any bank.

4gb on msi k8n neo-4 F


Hello pejegess,

If your OS is reading the 4Gb, it will be running the 4GB even if the bios is only seeing 3GB. You may just need to update the firmware on your motherboard but I suggest that you just leave it as is since the OS is recognizing the 4GB.

Sincerely,

Agent Xiong

RE: mother board not going on


Hi marlonvig, what type of memory (PC3200? or PC2700) memory are you using? What type in which slot?

The decription (In you're manual), refering to you're memory can be confusing.
You're manual says you can use up to 1GB of
PC3200 DDR400MHz only in Slot 1.
If you add DDR400MHz into slot 2. The board will not support it. (weird)!
If you want to reach 2GB of memory. You must use PC2700 (DDR333)MHz. 2x1GB PC2700 = 1GB DIMMS in both DIMM 1 & 2. You're board does not support DDR2 type memory.

Need you're manual? Download it from this link. Click on it.

Maximum RAM not achiveable for KT4V


What Operating System and revision are you running?
I don't believe that XP 32bit (not sure about 64) will recognize 3GB of RAM, but Vista will as long as your MoBo (Mother Board) supports it or possibly even more than.
My Asus MoBo will utilize 4GB but Vista 32bit will only utilize 3.48GB or so, and Vista 64bit will take up to 8GB if the MoBo will.
Let us know what O.S. you're running?
