    "I put in four 512 memory sticks and it is still just recognizing." Just recognizing how much of the 2GB of Memory? You can use DDR 184pin RAM. What kind of ram are you trying to use? What manufacturer, memory speed and where did you buy it?

The Asus P4S800-X MB can use Dual channel DDR memory and single channel memory. The dual channel memory which comes in matching packs. (Normally 2 DIMMS per pack) is the faster memory.
In other words if you are installing, 4- 512MB DIMMS of PC3200 all memory should be matched,
or you're MB may not see all connected DIMM'S.

See page vii in you're manual. If you're running windows XP, Home or Pro edition the bios will show up to 4GB of memory installed but windows XP 32bit will only show 3GB of memory. As mentioned above all 4 of you're 512MB of memory should be dual channel and run at the same speed. You can run both single channel and dual channel but you must follow Table 1 in you're manual. (1-9).
Example; PC3200 400MHz.
Or 4-512MB PC2700 333MHz. See page 1-9 for memory configurations and the QVL list supported.
Check out Asus FAQ's; http://support.asus.com/faq/faq.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=P4S800D-X&product=6&os=17

This should help you configure the memory.
Good luck!

According to the ASUS Motherboard manual:

http://dlsvr03.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/sock478/p4s800d-x/e1753_p4s800d-x.pdf

your 4 sticks of RAM should be fully supported:

* 4 x 184-pin DDR DIMM sockets for up to 4GB memory
* supports PC3200/PC2700/PC2100/PC1600 unbuffered non-ECC DDR DIMMs
* dual-channel memory architecture.

Hi,
According to Asus, the max supported memory is 2 gig. That second stick of 512 is not needed and the error shown is in memory configuration.

P4s800d x agp apeture size only 256 i have a 512


Sadly no, updated bios wouldnt help. The motherboard was designed for a 256mb AGP card max.

New motherboard is about your only option, or sell the card and get one with 256mb. of memory.

Sorry for the news, thank you for trying Fixya!

Adding memory to tx pro mainboard


You do not say what memory you are trying to install.

The ASUS P4S800D motherboard has four memory slots that hold DDR PC2700 or DDR PC3200 with a maximum of 1GB per slot, so the installed maximum is 4GB.

DDR memory is generally available in 128MB, 256MB, 512MB and 1GB modules. If you already have memory installed, it must be at least 128MB so you cannot add modules to 'bring memory to 128'.

Either you have a different motherboard and posted in the wrong section, your memory calculations are wrong, or you have used older PC-133,PC-100 or PC-66 memory instead of DDR. The last is unlikely as older SDRAM has two notches and won't physically fit into a DDR slot that only has one notch.

Please re-post with the specific motherboard model just to confirm and a list of the memory modules you are trying to use.

Memory


Hi maiger,
Each of the 4 memory sockets on P4S800D-X can support 1GB memory module, so the M/B can support up to 4GB memory max. Please note that if you install four 1GB memory modules on P4S800D-X, the system may only detect 3GB+ (slightly less than 4GB) due to ICH5 resource allocation.

Upgrade from 512MB to 1GB


The specs on the memory are correct, so you purchased the correct type of memory for this motherboard. If your getting no video when you power on with the 1gb stick, I would be willing to bet the 1gb stick is bad. Can you return it and try another stick?
