Question about Asrock ConRoe1333-D667 Motherboard

1 Answer

I have a problem with my pc turning off. I ave recently upgaded a few components in my pc but have encountered a problem. My pc wont recognise the full 4gb ram on startup. it wont recognise it in windows either only 3.2gb ram. this is not the problem though. just what first led me to it. Its shutting down (cutting out) by itself. I think i have bottomed it out as i bought 2x 2gb pc-5300 667 ram from a very reputable internet company and when it came it said it was what i ordered labelled up the same. I needed this as my motherboard is a conroe 1333-d667 which only supports 533/667. After going round in circles, and this only happening after installing the new ram, i checked it out on pc wzard 2010. the ram is pc6400 800! which is not supported by my moterboard. since switching back its now doing it with my old ram that was all fine for about 1.5 years since ive had it really. Question is. could using that pc-6400 800 ram have done any damage to my moherboard??? Does the pc-6400 800 require a different voltage o run at the faster clock speed than the pc-5300 667 and could that have damaged my motheroard? Any help would be most appreciated! Thanks Steve

No it won't damage your motherboard If it is working ok on your pc without making any sounds that it do when the ram is not supported or wrongly install then its fine. And memory store some cache memory also so it never shows its full storage capacity. But it shows in Run--dxdiag--enter use this command to view its full storage capacity.

Wont turn off and wont accept PC

Did you try resetting the iPod?

You do that by holding the middle button and the Menu button for a few seconds, and the screen should go black.

If that doesn't work, try letting it drain the battery. Once it's drained, it'll shut off - then you can recharge it and activate it again.
