> not working on a NEW motherboard

If it really is NEW, then exercise the warranty, and get a replacement motherboard.

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


put it in an open memory slot although its recommended to add it for an even amount of memory (ie. 2, 4, 6, 8) if im not mistaken 4 slots w/ 8Gb max memory

go here: http://www.crucial.com/, and make sure all is compatible, with free memory scanner(it is safe i have used it and got no viruses)

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.)

I have a Acer AX1200-U1510A AM2+ Motherboard and i would like to upgrade the processor, ihave 4 gigs of mem and a 1 gig Gigabyte Gt 610 graphics card. I only have a 240 watt power supply what processo


Should work with a processor of the same socket type. I'd seriously upgrade the psu myself. Personally I'd upgrade the motherboard and processor to a quad core, and get the fastest ram, look at ebuyer.com, you can buy a bundle upgrade package for less than you may think. :)

HI I have a Gigabyte motherboard 945GCMX-S2, I have a 1GB ddr2 (667 Hz) hynix ram already installed ..to upgrade it i installed another 1GB dynet ram (666 Hz)..but my cpu beeps now...i remember runni


You should be able to as it can take 4 gig total according to the manual.

Memory:
2 DDRII DIMM memory slots (supports up to 4 GB memory) (Note 2)
Supports dual channel DDRII 667/533 unbuffered DIMMs (Note 3)
Supports 1.8V DDRII DIMMs
Note 2. Only for GA-945GCMX-S2.
Note 3. Only for GA-945GCM-S2.

Fiteed new quad core CPU and 4gb of Ram, when started up getting no signal detected on the monitor. Can anyone help?


Let's back up a second.

A) What HP model is it? (P/N. Product Number. Back of desktop computer tower)
B) What model number of Intel quad core is it?
C) What are the manufacturer ID number/letters on the ram memory module/s?

I need to know what Northbridge chip is used on the motherboard, to know if it will support the particular Intel quad core you're trying to use.
This I can hopefully obtain from HP Support, by looking at the specifications for the motherboard.

(This technology does not apply to motherboards that support the Intel Core i3, Core i5, Core i7, and Core i9 processors)

The Northbridge chip is part of the motherboard chipset.
So aptly named, because on a desktop computer motherboard it sits to the 'North', for one.
(Under the Processor)

[ Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Circuit

The Northbridge chip handles the faster capabilities of the computer.
It handles the Processor, Ram Memory, and High-speed graphics.

AGP and PCI-Express are high-speed graphics technology.
A graphics card plugged into a PCI slot, and Integrated Graphics, is Not high-speed graphics.

The Southbridge chip handles the slower capabilities of the computer.

Motherboard Diagram;

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

List of Intel Chipsets, and more specifically the one's that can handle Intel quad core processors,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_chipsets#Core_2_chipsets

Secondly;
Make sure the Ram Memory you installed is Compatible.
If the motherboard supports 4GB of ram, make sure it is in the correct ram slots if using two sticks of ram, or four sticks.

There HAS to be a ram memory module ('Stick') in Slot 1. (DIMM 1)
EACH ram memory slot has a Maximum Amount.

For example if there are 4 ram slots, and the Maximum Total Amount of ram memory is 4GB, each ram slot may have a maximum of 1GB.
It may, or may not be that you can use Slot 1 and Slot 2, and use two 2GB sticks.

Third:
Always go slow when upgrading.
Install the Processor first, boot the computer up, see how it works.

THEN shut the computer down, unplug from power, observe Anti-Static Precautions, and install 2GB of ram memory.

Works?
Install the other 2GB.
BIOS has to recognize the changes.

Fourth:
Are you sure your Power Supply is adequate to support the quad core, and the added ram memory?

Motherboard will not run with 8gig mem


I suspect this is a memory compatibilty problem - the memory you have listed is not on the GA recommended memory list see - http://www.gigabyte.com.tw/FileList/MemorySupport/motherboard_memory_ga-ep45-ds5.pdf

Note The memory spec of what you are using is set at 2.1v yet your motherboard spec is 1.8v also the latency of your memory is spec 5-5-5-15 2t at 2.1v and 1066mhz - the motherbaord and recommended memory is 5-5-5-15 / 4-4-4-12 at 1.8v at 800mhz

Try down specing the system memory to run at 800mhz not 1066 - this will reduce your processor speed as well, but at least it might work. there is no guarantee as the latency at 800mhz is 5-5-5-18 for your memory.

Gigabyte k8m800-8237 won't boot with 2nd gig ram installed.


Could have been dusty. Find a copy of Memtest and run it to check things out. Errors could mean a bad stick or bad slot.

I have gigabyte series g31 m-es2L i want use memory pc 5300.... it's support with this mainboard ???? tx pls reply to : it_mid@yahoo.com


Hi,

First, clarification: the closest Gigabyte model is GA-G31M-ES2L... there is no "g31 m-es2L"

For this kind of question the easiest way to find the answer is from the manufacturer: Gigabyte

A quick search of their products results in:

http://www.giga-byte.com/Products/Motherboard/Products_Spec.aspx?ClassValue=Motherboard&ProductID=2889&ProductName=GA-G31M-ES2L

which states that up to 800mhz DDR2 (PC6400) is supported
( 667mhz (PC5300) is also supported. )

Generally with motherboards, if a higher speed of memory is supported, the lower speeds are also supported.

PS: mhz times 8 yields the PCxxxx number, PCxxxx divided by 8 yields the mhz number

Sounds like either a bad stick of memory or a bad dimm slot . Have you tried the memory on another motherboard ?
