If it is Ram

Will a good motherboard post without RAM in the slot or does it have to have RAM installed to post?

    I'll try a good stick of RAM. If something comes up on the screen at all, that will be a good sign.

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.)

My problum is when i attached ram 1 gb after its system restart and show belue screen and i sure my rem is ok tell me what is problum here????


A) FixYa T.O.S. (Terms of Service) states to NOT post your email address.
The TOS is read when you join.

B) How about posting the MOTHERBOARD manufacturer name, and Model Number?

Also post what ram memory ,manufacturer, and manufacturer code on the ram memory module.

Ram Memory HAS to be in Slot 1. (May state DIMM 1 next to the ram memory slot. Can also be Slot 0, or DIMM 0 )

Slot 1 is the ram memory slot nearest the Processor.
A Processor reads ram memory Slot 1 first.

Do you know;

1) What is the Maximum TOTAL Amount of ram memory, for the motherboard?

2) What is the Maximum Amount for EACH ram memory slot?

3) What type of ram memory is supported?

For an example;
Can it use DDR Sdram at either 333MegaHertz, or 400MHz?
(PC2700 and PC3200, respectively)

4) What ram memory slots have you put ram memory in?

Post back in a Comment.

My motherbaord has only two slots for DDR2 RAM.Both slots are filled With 1GB DDR2 Ram Each.I want to increase RAM memory . Without Removing previous Ram from their slots.How to Solve the above problem.


Buy a new computer with more than 2 Gigs of RAM installed. Problem solved.


Otherwise I guess I simply don't understand why you would not want to remove the 2 smaller RAM modules and just replace them with larger capacity ones.


If you do decide to upgrade the memory, then one good and easy way to find out for sure how much RAM your computer can hold is to go to WWW.CRUCIAL.COM and run their SCAN MY COMPUTER feature.



This handy utility will scan your hardware configuration and tell you exactly how much RAM you currently have installed and what type it is.



It will also tell you how many RAM slots are fitted on your motherboard and what the maximum memory capacity is for each slot and the total capacity for that motherboard.



If your computer does have room to add more RAM, it will provide you with specific recommendations as to exactly what type and size of RAM stick to get to maximize the memory capacity and performance of your computer.



I hope that was helpful to you, good luck.

# of RAM slots


There are two models for this type of desktop, the first having only two DIMM slots, but that takes PC2700 Ram, you have stated that yours takes PC3200 which would make it the second model in which case your model has (4) DIMM slots, each slot is capable of holding a 1 GB stick of ram for a total of 4 GB. Your RAM specification is DDR PC-3200

DDR2's only showing half installed RAM


IF THE SYSTEM SAYS YOU HAVE 1GB RAM THAN YOU HAVE 1 GIG OF RAM, EVEN THOU SOMEONE TOLD YOU YOU HAD 2-512MG=1GB.

HERE IS HOW I SEE WHAT YOU ARE SAYING YOU HAVE 2-DDR-2 1 GIG STICKS THAT MEAN IF 1 IS INSTALLED THAN YOU HAVE 1 GB AND IF YOU COULD GET 2 STICKS WORKING TOGETHER THAN YOU WOULD HAVE 2GB RAM.
1 CHIP SET = 1GB RAM
2 CHIP SET = 2GB RAM

YOU MOTHERBOARD MAY NOT ALLOW THAT MUCH RAM, OR WHAT I MEAN THE BIOS MAKE UP THE AMOUNT OF RAM.

TO RULE OUT ANY BAD CHIP SETS OR GOOD RAM OR BAD RAM.

TAKE THE PEACE OF RAM THAT IS WORKING OUT AND REPLACE IT WITH THE OTHER PEACE AND SEE IF IT WILL RUN.
IF IT WORKS THAN LEAVE THAT ONE IN PLACE AND INSTALL THE SECOND PEACE IN THE SECOND SLOT.
IF BOTH CHIP SET ARE GOOD THAN BOTH SHOULD WORK OKAY TOGETHER.
IF THERE IS A PROBLEM, IT MAYBE SOME DUST IN THE MEMORY LOTS
OR THE SLOT MAYBE DAMAGED.
OR
THE CHIP DESIGN LAYOUT MAYBE THE OPPOSITE SIDE, THIS MAY MEANS THE CHIPS MAY FACE EACH OTHER, OR FACE OUTWARD FROM EACH OTHER.

The problem is with your RAM. Try installing the RAM in another slot. Install your AGP card slowly. I can assure about your motherboard yet you have no problem without assembling. Keep informing.

Ram not working with motherboard


Hi

Check if your motherboard only supports only dual channel interleaved memory from the manual because it might be the main issue of your problem. Also DO NOT plug in the 512 MB ram you have over there. If it is ok to have one Slot empty then there should be no reason why it should not POST properly. Before jumping to conclusions that the RAM is faulty. Make sure that you REMOVE any overclocking you might have on the system. Some RAM won't post wihen the CPU clock and multiplier are not standard. Also it could help if you load FAIL SAFE settings in the BIOS until you determine the proper cause of the problem.

Hope that this helps :) (please rate thanks)

Both ram not detect


More than likely the 2nd slot your trying to use is bad, however before you make that assumption try inserting a stick in the possible bad slot by itself and see if it will post. Let us know :-)
