Question about Matsonic MS9087C Motherboard

Open Question

I have a Matsonic MS9087C main board. i've been running 1 512 stick and 2 256's in it for a while. i just purchased 3 x 1 GB DDR PC3200 / 400 mhz high density sticks. They are brand new and do not work in my system. My other ram works in there fine. What's my problem ? The mainboard specs say up to 3 GB. The only difference in my old ram and the new sticks is that the new ones have small black squaers on them rather than long black squares. all the specs match. Please help me.

SOURCE: DDR PC3200 displays no video on LCD and Out of Range on CRT

Hi, If I may add to the other posts, 1. If the problem persist with the new or the old memory, then it is not a memory problem; 2. Jumper on Clear CMOS/BIOS and removing the small battery should set the system back to default, of course for normal operation, it should be set back to normal position; 3. It is possible that it is not a PSU problem, it is likely that the PSU is ok and just doing its job of switching off probably due to a fault at the motherboard; 4. The MB fault maybe be anything. Try removing everything except mb & front panel wires and the psu (video card,cables to your drives, memories). Check if on powerup, fans will spin normally and not just start then stops; if it works reinstall everything, if not: 4.1 Remove your motherboard from the back panel plate, remove the front panel connector/wires (it is a good idea to mark them down or copy how they are connected), remove power supply. Place mb on top of an old newspaper or something (as long as not metal or conductive), Install PSU power connectors, short/jump power on pins (where the front panel connectors/wires were connected before). If it works, your set to go, If not, maybe for some unknown reasons the mb is fried. Other possible causes of start/stop spin of fan: reset switch stuck, bent pins in memory slot, inverted IDE cable (though not likely but possibly), MB sensing fan is not or malfunctioning, fried CPU, BIOS (though normally there is a warning of boot block or something like that), no keyboard present. Of course, I am assuming that you have replaced the PSU with a new or known good one as you have comment/posted previous to this. Hope this works out for you and give you further ideas. Pls comment/post back should you need further information. Good luck and kind regards.

SOURCE: Install DDR-DIMM PC3200 to MS-6367 MSI

That motherboard was made for PC2100 DDR266. A PC3200 DIMM *SHOULD* be backward compatible. Depending on the density of the PC3200 memory you might have problems. If you have not bought the memory yet I would go with the PC2100 for sure since the PC3200 will give you no speed gains at all and will be running at PC2100 speeds anyway.

If you already have the PC3200 memory then I would say just give it a shot. The worse case scenario is your machine will not boot up with the higher speed ram installed. Assuming you take all the normal hardware upgrade care and do not physically break anything you can test this memory with no harm to your motherboard.

How do you know when a memory stick is single-bank? I want to upgrade my A7V8X-X with 3 Gs, but I keep getting confuse how to determent what is single-bank! Is there a specific code in the product...

This is the memory spec for your motherboard...

3 x DDR DIMM Sockets
Max. 3 GB unbuffered PC2100 / PC1600 non-ECC SDRAM Memory (PC3200 Max. to 2 banks only / PC2700 Max to 4 banks only)

Part of the memory spec will tell you if it is single sided (memory chips only on one side of board)
Double sided is memory chips on both sides of the board....Some systems will not work with double sided memory...

Ram assurance

The schematic layout of the P5VDC-MX on the user manual shows that there are 4 DIMM banks, set as 2 X 2 rows, 2 DDR2 and 2 DDR.

The user manual explicity states:

I am running different frequency modules without any problems. With the info above provided by ASUS, it may be possible that a fix could be available with a BIOS update. Otherwise, you can opt to use a lower capacity RAM along with your 1GB Corsair.

Hope this helps.
