Ram install I tried both sticks of Dual Channel separately and in two machines. I have a newer board in a different machine and both sticks work at the same time in it. I have tried to update the bios, but the auto updater does not seem to work anymore.

It would seems that there is a compatibility issue with the older board.

only thing that might help might be the bios update witch you would need to do manually in dos, by starting up with a windows 98 bootdisk for example.

http://www.bootdisk.com/


you can find the newest bios from here and the utilitys required for dos flashing

http://support.asus.com/download/download.aspx?SLanguage=en-us&model=A7N8X

check the date Version C1007 2003/10/09 update
is your current bios the same or older?

If you need more assistance let me know, I'm here to help

What's your problem?bit ix38 quad gt motherboard with 2 gig of ddr2 ram i want to add a 1 gig stick of more ram that ive bought how do i do this? thanks windows seven

Motherboard User Manual,

http://www.theraptorpit.com/forum/index.php?/forum/124-abit-motherboard-tech-support-unofficial/

1) On the motherboard the Blue ram memory slot that is closest to the copper heatsink, is ram memory Slot 1.
Also known as DIMM 1.

Ram memory ALWAYS has to be in this ram memory slot.
The Processor reads ram memory Slot 1 first.

2) The Blue ram memory slots are Slot 1 (DIMM 1), and Slot 3.
(DIMM 3)
The Black ram memory slots are Slot 2 (DIMM 2), and Slot 4.
(DIMM 4)

To run Dual Channel ram memory, means there are two LIKE ram memory modules ('Stick'), and they are installed in the SAME channel.

This would mean to alike ram memory modules, in both Blue ram memory slots, or both Black ram memory slots.

Since the ram memory modules need to be alike, they are generally purchased from the same manufacturer, and are the same kind.

Running ram memory in a dual channel configuration, is supposed to increase ram memory 'speed', up to 30 percent.

This is Baloney!
May look good on paper, but in actual use in the field it's cr@p.
Actual performance increase is more like 1 to 2 percent.
This has been proven by Tom's Hardware, and many, many motherboards, ram memory, Processors, etc.

So you have 2GB of DDR2 Sdram, huh?
Is it just one 'stick' of ram memory, or are you referring to two 1GB sticks?

If the above holds true install them in Slot 1 and Slot 3.

If not, and it is a 2GB stick of ram memory, be sure it is installed in Slot 1 (DIMM 1)
Install the 1GB stick in Slot 2.

It isn't the same as the 2GB stick.
It is 1GB.
Does NOT go in a dual channel configuration.

(Catching all this? There is NO dual channel ram memory!

It is ram memory that is -> ALIKE, and used in a -> dual channel configuration.
Used in two separate ram memory slots, that support the dual channel configuration.

Sold with the advertising scheme of 'Dual Channel', but really just means the two ram memory modules, (Or four), are -> alike.

1) Same Voltage used
2) Same Ram Timings
3) Same Chip Configuration
4) Same size in amount
5) Same frequency rate ('Speed')

With ram memory in a dual channel configuration, the ram memory modules team up on the task.)

Can you tell me what is the difference in performance without having Dual-Channel working as it should,compared to my present situation meening NO DUAL-CHANNEL working??


Dual channel means two channels of memory. there are two configurations you can use. you can use single channel method which has twoo ram sticks running on one channel or you can have a seperate channel for each ram stick. Dual channel is said to be the better way to run it because it increases speed of the ram. Now assuming you have 4 slots for ram. to use dual channel you have to run 2 sticks of the same value (MB) right next to each other. You cannot run 2 sticks of different values in dual channel mode. In the case that you do the sticks would pair together on a single channel. Hope this helps you better understand.

Acer official site says:-
Up to 4 GB DDR2 533/667/800 MHz SDRAM
(dual-channel support on four DIMMs)

Try these bus speeds and for dual-channel support read this article :-

Dual-channel architecture requires a dual-channel-capable motherboard and two or more DDR, DDR2 SDRAM, or DDR3 SDRAM memory modules. The memory modules are installed into matching banks, which are usually color coded on the motherboard. These separate channels allow each memory module access to the memory controller, increasing throughput bandwidth. It is not required that identical modules be used, but this is often recommended for best dual-channel operation. It is possible to use a single-sided module of 512 MB and a double-sided module of 512 MB in dual-channel configuration, but how fast and stable it is depends on the memory controller.

If the motherboard has two pairs of differently colored DIMM sockets (the colors indicate which bank they belong to, bank 0 or bank 1), then one can place a matched pair of memory modules in bank 0, but a different-capacity pair of modules in bank 1, as long as they are of the same speed. Using this scheme, a pair of 1 GB memory modules in bank 0 and a pair of matched 512 MB modules in bank 1 would be acceptable for dual-channel operation.

Modules rated at different speeds can be run in dual-channel mode, although the motherboard will then run all memory modules at the speed of the slowest module. Some motherboards, however, have compatibility issues with certain brands or models of memory when attempting to use them in dual-channel mode. For this reason, it is generally advised to use identical pairs of memory modules, which is why most memory manufacturers now sell "kits" of matched-pair DIMMs. Several motherboard manufacturers only support configurations where a "matched pair" of modules are used. A matching pair needs to match in.

Good luck

Start pc and all i get is three long beeps


Either ur Ram is bad or not locked into the slot. The only other reason the 3 beeps is if the CPU is installed incorrectly or is bad.

Do you get any error beeps when you turn on your computer? Check this list here: http://www.5starsupport.com/info/beep_codes.htm

Also, there are three different types of RAM: DDR1, DDR2 and DDR3. I have never come across a computer that will run two different types simultaneously, if your motherboard supports both DDR2 and DDR3 (The pins and key are different, so they won't fit in a non supported slot)

If both sticks of RAM are exactly the same, try running it in dual channel mode, by inserting the RAM sticks in the same coloured slots on motherboard, providing your motherboard supports this

RAM


It's likely that the 2 sticks are different types/speeds of memory, so either one works, but both in tandem do not. Even if identical, it's possible that when 2 sticks are installed, they will automatically attempt to run in "Dual channel" mode - and they may not be able to do so because of timing issues. You might have better luck using a 2x1GB pair bought because it specifically supports your machine. Corsair's web site has a memory configurator that helps you to pick the correct type of memory for your machine.

New Installation


Are you sure the ram is compatible with the mobo? Try taking all but one stick of RAM out and see if it still does it.

The long beeps tend to point to a RAM problem, or it's possible it can't "find" a hard drive.

Some motherboards support dual channel (you'll see different color slots), and some don't. If you try to put the sticks in dual channel configuration, and the cpu or the motherboard doesn't support dual channel, you may experience this.

If you have different color slots, put one stick in one color slot, and another stick in the other color, or vice versa.

The manual "should" tell you the proper configuration for this, and may even tell you what the beeps stand for.

If you can post the make / model of all the components, I can do the "dirty work" for you and see it if should all work together.

Motherboard Missing instruction manual for dual mode memory


Your instruction manual for the mother board should have this, however, with dual-channel motherboards, you will want to fill the same colored slots together if you have dual-channel capable memory, otherwise you'll want to fill in the off-colored slots first.  ASUS has it's manuals online, so if you've lost yours you should be able to download a pdf of it from their website.

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.

Ram problem


1)not all rams are dual compatible 2)did u try both sticks separately? (1 may be damaged) 3)are they exactly the same? CAS, voltage, etc..? Sometimes different CHIPS cause trouble 4)try changing to 333 mhz if it works, go back to 400 and try either CAS 3.0 (assuming auto is 2.5 or lover) if not working yet, try the "T" seeting to "1". If your BIOS doenst show this setting and is AWARD, after getting into it with DEL, press CTRL+F1 and then look which setting came from the dark... (hidden settings) on Gigabyte boards for ex. it has to be done.
