Hi, your power supply is OK, but you must install identical memory cards to the ones already installed.

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


Top view of motherboard, scroll down. (Thought you might also like to read the reviews, and Comments)

http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/motherboards/2007/12/06/abit_ix38_quadgt/2

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.)

How to add or change DDR2 Memory Compaq Presario SR5110 desktop computer


Just remove the power cord, open the case, turn the computer on it's side and you will see the memory sitting in the slots. Push down on the latches on both ends of the memory slot and then you can pull the memory out.

Be sure to replace it with compatible memory or it will not boot up. Also it you install more than your system will hold, it will not register the excess.

Try 4 All Memory website. It will tell the type, how many slots you have and the maximum amount of memory it can hold.

http://www.4allmemory.com

It looks like your system uses DDR2-PC2-5300 Memory. It has 2 slots and a total capacity of 4GB which means each slot can hold a 2GB chip.

My pc will not boot up with both ram memslots filled take on ram out either one dosnt matter and it works fine put it bacvk in and locks aftwer boot or not boot at all


Hello
You need to seperate the ram sticks.Im assuming you have 4 slots.Color coded.Say 2 blue 2 white.
So 1 stick goes in white slot and the other goes in blue slot.

Or if you have 2 slots and while using both ram sticks you still can not boot up.This is beacause one of the sticks is different then the other.Read the ifno on the sticks.Something is not the same.

I am using this ASUS (asus M2N-MX nvidia mcp61p chipset


According to the manufacturer's web-site:

http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=0pKBwEIE8tqMT4j7


this motherboard has 4 x DIMM sockets,
supporting a maximum of 4 GB
of DDR2 800/667/533/ Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory

and supports Dual Channel memory architecture.

So, add one 512MB DDR2 533 Mhz RAM into one of the slots,
being sure to leave *ONE* *EMPTY* slot between the two sticks,
in order to enable the high-performance "dual-channel" option.

Try your computer -- it should feel faster.

If you still think that need more RAM, buy two 512MB (or two 1024MB) DDR2 533 Mhz RAM, putting the 2 sticks into the two empty slots.

I replaced a 512mb memory for the pny 2x1GB ddr2 pc2-5300 to improve my system performance but when i turn it on my system shut down a while after i had log in to my account then i removed the memory card...


You may have a bad memory stick. If the two are not exactly the same spec they may not be compatible.

Haev you checked that your motherboard is capable of handling 2gb of memory? And that it is the correct type of memory(size and speed) and that you are placing it in the correct slots(ddr2 only goes in ddr2 slots and ddr only works in ddr)

The power supply makes no real difference to memory, replacing that is not a solution

Upgraded Ram Issues


check the voltage on your new ram.
For ddr2 you need both slots filled.(this the memory I would use)
Make sure you put it in the right slots.
make sure that BIOs recognises each stick.
Let me know if these work for you.
