My mobo has 4 memory card slots


1) All of your memory must be compatible with your motherboard (DDR, DDR2, or DDR3 and speed and latency). For best results, if you have dual channel capability, each pair of memory sticks should be matched. (Usually consecutive serial numbers indicate pairs from a given manufacturer.) Both sets of memory should be rated at the same speed (or the slowest speed will be your memory speed). Some motherboards may not work with all 4 slots occupied unless the memory was certified to work as a set of 4.

2) Which motherboard do you have? The motherboard manufacturer and memory companies often will have lists of compatible memory. The motherboard manufacturer will also have information on the dual-channel pairing.

My current and previous motherboards have had memory slots in color pairs (blue, black). For my boards, I put the sticks in the blue slots (A2 and B2) first. (Preferably these should be the largest memory capacity.) Then I put the second pair of memory into the black slots (A1 and B1). DIMM slot A1 is closest to the CPU; B2 is the farthest away from the CPU.

Depending on your CPU cooler, you may need to remove it or modify it to use all 4 DIMM slots.

Observe the appropriate steps to avoid static discharges while handling your memory and when inside your computer. For actually inserting the memory, make sure that the locks (white on my motherboards) are fully open (hinged away from the slot). Line up your memory so that the slot in the memory is on top of the key in the slot and the memory is centered in the slot. It will only line up one way; the wrong memory type will not line up. Push your memory stick down fully until the locking clips rotate up and fully engage the memory. (You may need to push down at multiple places to get it fully seated.) You will then repeat the procedure with the rest of the memory.

Note: if you get a memory error, three beeps (on many boards), you will need to remove the memory and test one stick at a time in the A2 slot (for example). Then test pairs of slots. It is not unknown for either one stick to be bad or one slot to be bad. Look at the total memory your OS identifies, if you manage to boot in spite of any issues. Running Memtest may be needed but even that may not identify which specific memory segment is bad.

I hope this helps.

(who has installed or replaced memory since giving an 286 computer a full megabyte of memory. DIMMs are a lot harder to mess up as long as you have the correct memory. Note: most of the different DIMM types have different number of pins; thus sometimes it's very easy to tell that the wrong memory is being used. This isn't always the case.)

Extra memory


My manual for P4P800-VM says :-
Mode Dimm A1 DimmA2 DIMM b1 dIMM b2
single ch 1 populated
2 populated
3 populated
4 populated
---------------------------------------- ----------------------------------
Dual ch 1 populated populated
2 populated populated
3 populated popuated populated populated
for dual channel 3 configuration you may
install identical dimms in all four sockets or
identical in A1 and B1 [blue ]
and identical in dimm A2 and dimm B2 [black sockets ].
Probably same as yours
Good luck

Burnt DDR DIMM socket


It may be possible, but the system may very well become unstable at times. The purpose of the different color dimms is either daul band memory and or hypertheading, which means the memory needs to be matched and in pairs to work correctly. I would try one pair in the same colored slots in which one of them is not burnt. Also can you get it to boot with one stick of ram in a slot? Have you seen this board boot at all with 1 burnt slot (Known Good Board). Hope this was informative to you. Good Luck, Let me know how it works out.

It is ok?


Hi,
It is not a potential threat when you started getting this message after your installed the memory module but its annoying.I would suggest you to reset your bios setting and save and exit. If its still not working kindly revert back to me...

Thanks and Regards...

RAM Upgradation Problem


Your K8V-MX has 4 memory slots. The slot closest to the CPU is DIMM A1, to its right is B1, & than A2 & B2. Your memory should be matched if possible but in your case with 1xGB & 1x512Mb the memory should be placed as such. The 1Gb in slot B1 & the 512MB in B2. Check your manual for more configurations.

Memory pairs


no place them this way if one kind is kingston or whatever a1 b1 and the other kind makes no difference as long as their in the right sockets/ a2 b2 these should be colored so if you have 2 of one kind and 2 of another you would keep them in the perspective colors ?dual ram is usually done this way you would have 1 gb in a1 and the other in b1

Asus K8N-dl - second processor present but not running...


Hi, Mistyman here. All Asus mother boards that have dual channel RAM slot must have equal ram in each slot. In most cases the paired slots are matched by color for easy ID, some are identified by a printed ID on the mother board. With your board you will have to have run all of your RAM for the one CPU. If you have only one stick this must be in slot one. If you are using two sticks then utilise the dual chanel system that ASUS have and use A1 & A3. To activate the second CPU you will need to install matching sticks of RAM in the B slots. both cpu's will need to have the value of RAM to work together properly. CPU one = slot A for RAM CPU two = Slot B for RAM. Goodluck, the ASUS boards are a value product.
