Have you taken a look at page 2-12 in you're manual? Than re-check pg. 2-11 (Read everything) when setting up the Max memory of 4GB.

Unable to add more match RAM using secondary slots


You need the motherboard manual to make sure it can take more.
It may only accept 4 gig. For example: 2 x 2 gig strips or 4 x 1 gig strips.Or you may need to use single sided ram boards, chips on only one side. I know some motherboards do.

I had an intel d865 perl motherboard with a 2.8 processor and 4 gigs of ram, computeer ran great for years then one day i shorted the motehrboard and fried it, i ordered a brand new one and installed it...


Hi,

Thanks for asking FixYa for help. My name is Jeff and I will be assisting you today.

If you are using the same motherboard as the first one, what you are experiencing is too weird to worry over. Is it still under warranty? I'd say you have proved that the MB is deffective. Take it back for a refund or exchange.

If you are in need of additional help, please let us know.

Thank you for allowing us to help you today.

I currently Have I Gig of Ram. I am trying to install 2 x 1 Gig of Matched Ram in the Correct slots but the computer will not boot up with 2 sticks of Ram. If I take either one out it boots up fine


What slots you put the RAM into can make a difference - Assuming you have more than 2 slots, try staggering the RAM placement so there's an empty slot between the 2 RAM sticks. You'd have to look up your motherboard model online to see what specific instructions there are.

I have an Acer Aspire 7540-1284 laptop that came with 3GB memory. The specs say expandable to 4GB but the manual says expandable to 8GB using soDimm modules. I can't find info anywhere to support...


it prolly has 2 ram slots, capable of holding a 4gig ram stick apiece- for a total of 8 gigs.

however, the largest ram stick they currently make is 2 gigs. your board can support 2x4gigs of ram (8 altogether), buit the most ram you can currently purchase is 2x2gigs (for 4 gigs altogether).

additionally, you have to have a 64 buit version of windows to regognize all 8 gigs if you had them.
a 32 bit version of windows will recognize no more than 4 gigs of ram.

2 gig ram sticks


Not with Windows XP, because more than 3 gigs isn't useful. Many servers come with 8 or more and nearly any computer you configure at the major manufacturer's websites can be bought with 8 or more.

I have a question on how to add RAM to an Intel D850MV.


According to specs your board can max out at 2GB. So you could fill all slots with 512 Gb sticks, 1GB total in each bank. You should always match RAM in pairs. You should be able to add just 1 stick in second bank as long as the first 2 banks are filled.

4gigs ram


Switch sticks around in various combinations (2 gig in slot one, 1 gig in slot two, switch, try other stick, etc) and see if it is the memory or the motherboard.

Double boot


almost anything is possible, but in general a 430 watt P/S should be able to run 2 gigs of ram, however that doesn't mean that the ram you purchased is the correct ram for the motherboard or that you have so many other added perpherials i.e. dual or tripe CD drives, hard drives, USB perpherials that the load is simply to great for your P/S. A rule of thumb is find out what your system ' will ' run with and then work from there. For example if a person was serous about this problem he might disconnect all power connectors to all other equipment other then his hard drive, monitor/video card, and his motherboard just to see if the system could then boot normally. If it did, chances are the memory is okay for the motherboard in normal circumstances. However if the system did not boot normally, it might be an incompatibility with the 2 gigs of memory on that particular motherboard. Memory is not a generic add-on. A person needs to make sure the memory is correct for a motherboard before installing. Also you indicate the present P/S is only 4 months old, any particular reason why you had it changed out to begin with??

2 gigs of ram


Re-check your manual at pg. 1-12. 1.9.1 Memory Configurations.
Since you know one bank of memory works fine in a certain slot. Now try the other in the same slot.

Doesn't boot with 3Gb of ram....


Your board can only handle 2Gb of total memory.
2 x DDR2 SDRAM DIMMs, Dual Channel DDR2 533/667/800.
Check your manual.
