Please help me in my RAM

I need your help.....
I have a foxconn motherboard (P4M800p7MA), it supports both DDR 400 (two slot) and DDR2 533(two slot).
When i bought my PC, I installed a 256MB DDR 400. This time I changed it with 512MB DDR2 533. When I installed the DDR2, I removed the DDR1 because the manual told me me to do so. I installed it correctly on its respective slot.
Sadly, my PC hangs everytime I log on.
I'm so confused because the manual said that "it supports DDR 400 and DDR2 533" memory.
I'm using a (1) 256MB DDR 400 this time. Please help me, I want to use the 512MB DDR2.

cpu name: Intel(R) Pentium(R) CPU 3.06GHz
motherboard model: P4M800p7MA-RS2H
BIOS Name: Phoenix- Award V6.00PG
memory device: KVR400X64C3A / 256Mb
OS:WindowsXp+SP2

Hi hope13,
you had it correct the first time. The DDR2 533MHz memory should be in the Blue slots. When using two DIMMS the motherboard requires the DDR2 533MHz memory be of the same size, brand & speed. For you to get a blue screen has nothing to do with you're memory. If there was a problem with you're memory, you bios would let you know by beeping a series of repeating beeps. Blue screens are usually caused by software & some hardware like you're hard drive. If you have data on you're hard drive & you do not want to erase it by re-installing windows fresh (That includes a must format), than I can suggest you download this software from this site. Click on the link.
http://www.ultimatebootcd.com/ Read what the software can do for you. If you do not want the software. Than break out you're windows CD & load it into you're CD-ROM drive. Boot the PC to the CD-ROM drive & in-stall windows. You're PC will function again when you finish installing windows & you're motherboard driver cd.

Good Luck!
I would have posted sooner but I though another was answering you're question.

If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.

What ramm do i need and how much can i put in


You may use either DDR 400 or DDR2 533 RAM. These will be 184 or 240 pin chips, respectively. The maximum RAM for this motherboard is 2GB total, and you may only use one type of RAM; you are not able to combine different speeds of RAM.

Hey Richard, your board has 2 x 184 DIMM slots, that are both usable, with a maximum capacity of 2GB, supported RAM types are 333MHz, and 266MHz..

Hope this is what you are looking for,

Cheers,

Only half of the RAM is active


HI,

Well, you need to understand that The first 2 slots on the board supports DDR2 and the last 2 supports DDR, so first off make sure that your using the first two slots. With that said, I assume that the Ram are identical? If not, that can be problematic. The next thing I would check is the bUS speed, and check with the mfg to make sure they are compatible modules. It supports DDR 333/400 and DDR2 533/400
As well as supports 128/256/512/1024 Mb technology up to 2GB. If your memory falls within these specifications, then put one chip on at a time to test to make sure that each one works independently, as well as try each slot independently. , If both work that's a good thing. You also need to update your BIOS which you can do HERE. If you've checked your slots and each memory stick, and you've updated BIOS, they should work. If not, they there is something wrong with the board when two chips are inserted, your connector between the two slots must be damaged. However, most unlikely, If you follow the above suggestion, you should be OK.

Good Luck,

Mark

Problem With ddr2 (Upgrade From ddr 512mb 400 to ddr2 1gb 800)


If it works fine with one stick of ram. Then it is the ram that is incompatible. You can try different settings but you may end up that the stick isn't compatible. Hope this helps let me know if you have any other questions.
Thank you,

Memory upgrade from ddr 256mb to ddr2 1g


there is a jumper setting to slect which type of memory you want to use, check your manual for details on how to change it

1> enusre the rams are in correctly
2>ensure your main board supports the amount of memory and the speed of the memory
3> verify jumper select to correct memory type is set correctly

if the main board aint compatable with the memory you brought that will cause the same problem
