Question about Intel D101GGC Motherboard

1 Answer

New RAM, computer stays on intel screen and occasionally continually beeps

Hi I have just bought 2GB of RAM for my motherboard. It is two 1GB sticks. When I insert the new RAM and start up the computer one of two things happen. Either it stays on the intel screen and nothing works or it gets stuck on the intel screen and does many, many, many long continuous beeps. I have tried refitting the RAM, changing BIOS settings and putting in one stick of 1GB and trying it by itself. The new RAM is a Micron and the according to the official intel website and, it should work. Here is the RAM's description: I hope you can help

    Thanks for trying to help, mind you I will try your methods, but I thought I posted this into the Intel D101GGC motherboard section, since it's the motherboard I have. I don't have an Asus. If you know any solutions for the Intel D101GGC motherboard please tell me.

    I just checked the products specifications and it says
    'SPD support' as one of its specs. Think you can help?

    Hi again
    I tried refitting the RAM six times now, but now it doesn't beep. Instead it just gets stuck at the 'intel' startup screen. This is the first screen I see when I turn my PC on, meaning once I have placed the new RAM I can't get past the 'intel' screen, so I am unable to run the memtest86 with the new RAM in. I hope you can help since I have no idea what to do.

    I have given up now. I have tried so many things to get this working. No luck :(  I did buy this from ebay and my guess is he supplied me with a RAM different from what he specified. I'm going to return the RAM and get it from crucial, since I can trust them.

    Thanks for trying

Hi DeezKelb, The continous beeps you are hearing is the Award bios telling you the memory is not seated correctly. Please remove the memory & re-seat the two DIMMS.
See Award bios beep codes, click on this link.

If the beeping continues. Either boot into the bios & reset from there or reset the bios by moving cmos/bios jumper page 1-16 in you're user manual to clear/reset the bios. (Remember to set the jumper back to default). Boot the PC & enter bios to setup you're prefered settings.
If you're board still continues to beep download a free program called Memest86 & run the software which will test you're memory. Scroll down the page till you are under the three Screenshots. Listed there is ** Memtest86+ V2.01 (21/02/2008) ** typed in red.
You have a choice of downloading software to creat either a bootable floppy disk or a bootable CD disk.
Bootable floppy; Download - Pre-Compiled package for Floppy (DOS - Win)

Bootable CD; Download - Pre-Compiled Bootable ISO (.zip)
You're Asus board can only run up to 2GB Max memory.
Main download web site for ASUS P4V8X-X.

Good Luck!
Have more questions, feel free to ask.

    Hi DeezKelb,

    My bad! Sorry about posting the information with regards to the Asus board. (Researching one too many manuals at a time).

    You're Intel board still uses the Award bios. The beep error's still apply. The Intel board (D101GGC) requires you're memory to be, (Serial Presence Detect),(SPD). As noted at Intel's link below. Look under, System Memory Features.

    Searching the memory you bought I did not find it to be SPD compliant. This could be nothing at all to worry about & the reason I'm posting about it is because Intel requires the memory to be so.

    All in all, I still suggest you run the memtest86+ program to be safe.

    Hay Deez, did you buy this memory from ebay? You are having too much trouble with this memory. Do you still have you're old memory? If yes, install the old memory. Does the board work?

    Rule of thumb, if you add new memory & system fails to boot. Something not right. Put in old RAM & system does boot. New memory not good. If you bought from ebay did it come with a waranty?

    There is nothing I can think of to (make) the memory run in you're board. The boards bios does not lie. You got beep code's that says memory not seated corretly. You reseated lots of times. My guess is the memory is bad.

Repeatedly long beeps

If you upreage the RAM to 2Gb by inserting a 2nd 1Gb memory module then the 2nd RAM maybe faulty or incompatible.
If you insert a 2gb memory module to replace the 1Gb memory module then it maybe faulty or incompatible.
Try using the same make and RAM speed as the original RAM module.

Why does memory upgrade for biostar k8m800-mam2 motherboard cause memory error beeps?

I would verify that the memory you're using is actually working properly.
Try to boot to the new stick and see if it works.
If not, it doesn't work.
If it does, you may need to replace the original stick with the same stick that you are trying to use now.

I want to upgrade my computer specs... hope you can help me.. CPU: intel core2 duo E4600 2.4Ghz/800Mhz/2mb L2 cache/65MOnm MOBO: elite 945GCT -M2/1333 (v1.0), 1945GC/C2D/1333MHZ/DDR2 667/PCI-E memory:...

If you are a "gamer" and you have 1GB of RAM, and you have Windows XP, you probably need more RAM.
If you are a "gamer" and you have 1GB of RAM, and you have Windows Vista or Windows 7, you DEFINITELY need more RAM.

Some motherboards support "dual-channel" mode, when you have 2 or 4 _IDENTICAL_ sticks of RAM. What happens is that each byte written to the RAM is "split" into 2 halves; one half is written to the 'A' stick of RAM, while, simultaneously, the other half is written to the 'B' stick of RAM. Obviously, this takes 4 "cycles" of the RAM, rather than taking 8 "cycles", if there was only one stick of RAM. So, your RAM seems to run at "double-speed".

So, when you buy more RAM, either try very hard to "match" your current 1GB stick of RAM, or purchase a "2GB dual-channel kit", or two "2GB dual-channel kits", to upgrade to 2GB (or 4GB) of RAM.

I have a intel 845gvsr board, want to replace a Ram. What type of RAM is suitable for this board?

Your Intel D845GVSR has,

1. Two ram slots.

2.Maximum Amount of ram is 1GB for EACH ram slot.

3.Maximum TOTAL Amount is 2GB, (1GB in each ram slot)

4.Uses DDR Sdram at 400MHz, (PC3200), OR
DDR Sdram at 533MHz, (PC4200)

This is an example of DDR Sdram at 400MHz, (PC3200),|c:1352|&Sort=0&Recs=10

(Not advertising for this website. There are many places to buy ram memory)
512MB + 512MB = 1024MB, or also stated as 1GB
1024MB = 1GB

I have a Gigabyte-GA-8SIMLNF motherboard and recently bought 2gb (2*1gb)of pc2100 DDR and am getting the no ram beep,it is labeled ecc ramwill this not work?

Your motherboard does not support ECC RAM. You'll have to buy a PC2100 nonECC DDR RAM. Also, it supports a maximum of 2 GB RAM, i.e; 2 RAMs each of 1GB in each slot.

Hope this answers your query. Thanks.

Intel D865GLC computer problems.

Go back to what started the problem. You bought 2 1 gig ram sticks. My bet is they're either not matched ram that matches what you already had in your computer or is not compatible with your motherboard or the ram is defective and has bad memory addresses. If your computer has build in video card then it probably gets it's video ram from the system ram. A lot of the blue screens of death are caused by bad memory address although it can look like it's blaming the problem on a certain program or device driver because that is the program or driver that was atempting to use the bad memory address.
