Memory should be same as the one that is in the motherboard . Each motherboard support only one type of memory. Search on the internet for the type of motherboard for memory supported with it. If it says other than DDR2/ DDR3 then the motherboard wouldn't support the memory. Do some searching like motherboaed p5p800 and see few websites for specification for the motherboard, check the memory specifically for the details.
First you have to know the mother board supports the ram with ddr 1 and ddr2 . Now the new technology motherboard are supports only ddr2 ram and the ddr1 ram are consider as the older version. But ASuS P5S899-VM is contains the new technolgy of ram slot please see the manua or the mother board box. there you can see which it supports.please check it
Hi shuter. Your Asus P5RD1-VM has an integrated video adapter ATI® Radeon 9600 GPU. You need to enter your bios & change the video start up order. Pg.2-22 in your manual.
Configuration options: [IGD] [PEG/IGD] [PCI/IGD]
Boot Graphics Adapter Priority [PEG/IGD]
Save & exit. Check system at boot up for correct memory count.
Thanks for using FixYa & if you need more help just re-post here. Have a good one!

Now I have uninstalled 1 memory, I'm using only 1Gb of RAM with the PCI-E card, and it's working well.
Again: checking Asus forum, this is a reported problem, and a bios bug... Asus should release a new bios version, but they seem not to bother, as this is a relatively "old' mb...
