Question about Gateway Performance 800 PC Desktop

1 Answer

I need to know more about a Gateway Performance 800 motherboard. I added a second 128 meg SDRAM 100 Mhz simm in bank 1 (the board came with a simm in bank 0). The BIOS recognizes the original simm as 128 meg, but sees the simm in bank 1 as 64 meg (total of 192 meg of ram). Is there a jumper I need to setup? This computer was purchased new in 2000. A number on the motherboard is P06B005502012449 (board ID?). Thanks.

Check the specs for your new ram. It sounds like you have double density ram installed. If your motherboard only supports single density it will only see 1/2 of the modual hence 64meg showing for 128 stick.


Please rate this solution if it has helped you.
Thanks, Gary

    I have a 838gm gateway,Ive tried to install 4gb of ram ,when I install more than 2gb,it will not boot


    Gateway's website says this motherboard will support 4GB of DDR333 or DDR400 memory. I would suggest testing each memory modules by plugging it into the board by itself, then rebooting. This way you can catch a bad DIMM that might be causing problems. If each one checks out then start adding one module at a time, rebooting after each one. If it still stops booting after you add a module, you probably have a bad system board, and only now that you are adding the extra memory are you finding that out. If that is the case, try contacting Gateway support. Maybe they would be kind enough to cover repair under warranty.

    RAM cuantity


    The motherboard you mentioned supports DDR1 RAM.

    For windows xp and general application 512 MB is enough.
    But if you use memory intensive applications like image/video editing then you can opt for 1-2 GB RAM.

    I have a P3 at 500MHz and was wondering with this Motherboard,


    The motherboard has three, dual in-line memory module (DIMM) sockets. Minimum memory size is 16 MB; maximum memory size is 768 MB. The largest DIMM supported at this time is 256 MB using unbuffered 128 Mbit technology parts. The BIOS automatically detects memory type, size, and speed.

    The motherboard supports the following memory features:
    • 168-pin DIMMs with gold-plated contacts
    • 66 or 100 MHz SDRAM
    • Non-ECC (64-bit) and ECC (72-bit) memory
    • 3.3 V memory only
    • Unbuffered Single- or double-sided DIMMs in the following sizes:


    DIMM Size Non-ECC Configuration ECC Configuration 16 MB 2M x 64 2M x 72 32 MB 4M x 64 4M x 72 64 MB 8M x 64 8M x 72 128 MB 16M x 64 16M x 72 256MB 32M x 64 32M x 72

    Synchronous DRAM (SDRAM) can be installed in one, two, or three sockets. EDO DIMMs are not supported. Memory size and speed can vary between sockets.

    Note: Intel® Pentium® II processors with 100 MHz front-side bus should be paired only with 100 MHz SDRAM. Processors with 66 MHz front-side bus can be paired with either 66 MHz or 100 MHz SDRAM.

    All memory components and DIMMs used with the Intel® SE440BX-2 motherboard should comply with the PC SDRAM specifications. These include: the PC SDRAM Specification (memory component specific), the PC Unbuffered DIMM Specification, and the PC Serial Presence Detect Specification.

    Note: It is recommended that SPD memory DIMMs be used with the SE440BX-2 motherboard. However, the BIOS will allow the use of non-SPD DIMM memory.

    So the max you can go is 3 x 256 MB.

    Thanks and please take a moment to rate fixya.

    IS DDR SDRAM IS DDR II RAM OR DDR


    No. DDR replaced the SD in RAM so SDRAM and DDR RAM are two completely different things but each ram type has its own frequency hence you get SDRAM 100(mhz) and SDRAM 133(Mhz) just like you get DDR 1 RAM at 266(mhz) and 400(mhz) and DDR 2 RAM at 533(mhz) and 800(mhz). Therefore as you can see how these things differ, but if your mboard takes SDRAM that it can take and frequency of SDRAM but you must ensure that all the frequencies of all your RAM modules in all your slots correspond otherwise you will have problems, meaning that if you decide to use 133mhz RAM then all your RAM modules that you use must be the same. Let me know how you go. thanks
