Question about EliteGroup PM800M2 Motherboard
Just bought a 1GB memory stick (PC3200 Major) for my Elite Group PM800-M2 motherboard. When this is installed, the computer does not boot. Have tried installation in both memory slots, all possible permutations with 256 MB and 512 MB sticks: PC does not boot when the 1GB is in. What gives?
So it seems you got the DDR / DDR2 side of the equation correct, but unknown to most, there is 'low' and 'high' density memory.
The density of memory refers to the number of chips used to make the total amount of memory that your memory stick contains. e.g. High density memory has few, large capacity chips to make up the 1024MB of memory on the stick, whereas low density memory uses many, small capacity chips to make up the same 1024MB total on the stick.
Typically, if it is a low / high density conflict, it is the 'low density' sticks only that will boot.
Me, I purchase Kingston memory when I'm unsure what the motherboard will be, and it has never failed to work.
I fix computers.
