Motherboard Won't Take 2 Sticks of RAM

I bought a second stick of RAM but the motherboard only computes one stick at a time. I have tested both sticks individually and it works with both, it just won't take the full 2GB of ram.

I go to the website and download the bios upgrade. But when I start the program in my WIN XP PRO system, it does not response. Also, it seems that if I plug only one ram in second slot, it does does notwork as well. what could be the reason? Thanks for your help.

Test both slots with 1 GB of memory, than switch to second bank of memory & test in both slots again.
You may need a bios upgrade. Click on this link.

I have a motherboard called d102ggc2 with max 2 GB capacity. I recently tried upgrading from 1 GB ram to 2 GB ram by adding another 1 GB stick. The problem is that both the sticks are not working together...


Sounds like the second RAM stick was placed in the wrong slot. I would suggest checking your motherboard manual to determine this. Some motherboard designs have unusual slot arrangements.

Conflicts of RAM and motherboard


well unfortunetly it seems as though your RAM may be bad or not compatible. My suggestion is to go to crucial.com and use their easy memory finder to see what is best for your system. Then look for it else where like newegg.com or tiger direct, etc. There isn't a whole lot that you can do to fix RAM like that to make it work with a system predefined by the maker.

That board type does not show on the ASUS web site. I think that your problem may be incompatibility of the RAM with the board specs. Placing faster RAM on the board will not make it go faster.

My computer keeps booting every 2 seconds and I just can see motherboards first screen during 1 second then cant see anything else


I am almost positive it is the ram, because it gets to windows but crashes after loading windows partially. I once had a similar problem. Just make sure all the Power Supply connectors are properly connected.

Try these steps too:

1. Full power down. Unplug the power cord from the Power supply. Then hold down the pc power button (this discharges any residual power in the capacitors).

2. Open the case and reseat the graphics card, hard drive, and RAM.

3. Take out one of the RAM sticks if there is 2 or more. Swap the RAM sticks in different RAM slots. Try one stick at a time to see if you can get the PC to boot. If this works, then the remaining ram sticks are damaged.

4. Set the Cmos jumper to clear. Power up the pc. Power down the PC. Set the Cmos jumper back to normal position, power up the PC.

5. Unplug and replug all the power supply cables.

6. Check the powersupply function. Either by a powersupply voltage checker (20-25 dollars at local PC shop), get the supply tested at a PC shop (usually a free service), put the powersupply in a different pc, or try a different powersupply in the problem computer.

If the Powersupply checks out ok, then you will have to do a process of elimination to find out what part or parts are the culprit of the No-Boot.

Start by pulling all the ram sticks if you have not already. This is the easiest components to check and usually a culprit.

We bought and installed a new motherboard and power supply for our Dell Optiplex GX 280. After connecting all the connections and power cord, the computer would not turn on. On orange light is lit on the...


Here is my flow chart.
So basically you cannot get the pc to POST. Meaning you have just a black screen when you power on the pc, right?

First off, did you attempt to update BIOS before this happened. 90% of the time this is caused by a corrupt bios.

If you are the victim of a bad BIOS flash, don't freak there are some options. First off, if the computer (or motherboard) is still under warranty the Computer (or motherboard) can be sent to the Vendor for a BIOS reprogramming.
If you are a DIY PC builder and the warranty is expired you can take out the bios chip and sent it someone who reprograms BIOS chips or you can buy a brand new chip form them. I will show you my people.

For non-BIOS issues:

If you did not try to update BIOS before the problem started then try these troubleshooting steps.

1. Full power down. Unplug the power cord from the Power supply. Then hold down the pc power button (this discharges any residual power in the capacitors).

2. Open the case and reseat the graphics card, hard drive, and RAM.

If it is not the RAM, you have to continue removing items such as sound cards, un-plugging hard drives and optical drives, other PCI cards. Do this one at a time until you find the culprit.

Two rams stopped working in intel d101ggc from today


You've got either mismatched RAM memory or 1 of your sticks are bad. You can isolate this by booting 1 stick at a time. If the machine boots fine with both sticks (one at a time) then they are mismatched or your motherboard isn't configure to handle the 2 sticks together (not very likely but a possibility) Hope this clarifies your problem All the best!

Motherboard not recognizing RAM


Is it exactly 3gig of ram?
You may have 4 sticks in but your onboard peripherals share the memory.
as such my 512mg stick is in but it shows me only 482mg.
Take into account your onboards.
Hope this Helps
