Question about Biostar P4M80-M4 Motherboard

1 Answer

Will not POST with 2g of kingston hyperX ram inside

Im trying to upgrade my pc from 1gigs of kingston ram to 2gigs. i bought two sticks of the kingston hyperX ram 1gig each. the model number is KHX3200AK2/2G. the frequency is 400MHz (PC3200) and the latency times are 2-3-2-6 at 2.65V and it can run at 2-3-3-8 at 2.6V. ive updated my bios to the latest version ive tried running it with one stick at a time for both of them in both slots. i understand this is ram made for overclocking and is not exactly recommended that it be used on this mobo but as far as ive checked no one else has had problems with this. i have even called kingston and talked with them about it and they have no records of it being a problem on this mobo ever before. so im absolutely stumped as to what to do next. im going to give biostar a call and see what they have to say but some added help to solve this would be nice.

If you are going to call. The question I would ask (Very important), will the board run with CL2 = 2.5v & or CL3 = 2.6 to 2.65volt memory.
This site is Kingston memory setter. Type in the board & it show's the type of memory the board can use. (Click on this link). As you look at the link this is for you're P4M80-M4 board.

This should help. I did not see a bios upgrade for this board that had anything to do with memory. The USA Biostar link is lacking opposed to the global link. The global manual give far more information (In depth), for bios instructions.
Global link: http://www.biostar.com.tw/app/en-us/mb/driver.php?S_ID=246

I'm sure the Kingston link will more than help you the_OCer.
Good luck!

Can't install kvr800d2n6/2g x 4 on aw9d max


What you have purchased is Kingston VALUE RAM. It is budget-priced RAM for generic use. It works well in most cases. I was unable to find an actual 4x3 GB "Kit" on the Kingston site, although I found 2x2 Kits. The problem here may be in matching. The specs for RAM are fairly stringent, but they have variances, and the cheaper RAM is more likely to have such variances. I would try first installing each stick separately in the primary slot and confirming that each is detected. Next place one stick in DIMM 1 and one DIMM 3 slots. This puts one stick in each channel. Each channel operates independently so matching is not an issue. If that works, try adding one stick to one channel or the other. If it fails, swap it to the other channel. The idea is to try to get the sticks matched up as best as possible. Hopefully you will find a happy match-up. Also, check the memory voltage. These sticks operate at a standard 1.8V, but having four installed could be loading down the power supply some and you may need to manually bump the voltage up a tenth or two. Don't go over 2.0V though.

Why does memory upgrade for biostar k8m800-mam2 motherboard cause memory error beeps?


I would verify that the memory you're using is actually working properly.
Try to boot to the new stick and see if it works.
If not, it doesn't work.
If it does, you may need to replace the original stick with the same stick that you are trying to use now.
Use this site as a guide.

I have a toshiba satellite A135-S4467 laptop, using two memory slots, totaling 1G. I've bought a Kingston ValueRAM - 2GB PC2-6400 DDR2 Laptop Memory Module. What is the best way to install my new 2G...


Hi, Yes, it would be best to take the old RAM out. I am assuming that this is 1 stick totalling 2GB. Optimally it would be good to have 2 x 1GB modules totaling 2GB, so they could work together. Otherwise, yes, just remove the the old ram and install the new module. If you are running a 32bit operating system, 3GB is all the system can use anyway. Hope this helps!

I have a m4a78lt-m motherboard will kingston ddr3 1600 4gb khx1600c9d3b1k2/4gx memory work with 32bit os I am putting a system togather have purchased the mother board and memory now i am questing if it...


This motherboard uses DDR3-SDRAM, ECC and non-ECC, unbuffered, PC3-10600(1333mhz) or PC3-8500(1066mhz), dual channel architecture (two sticks at a time), and a max memory of 8Gs.
This are the specs for your ram: 4GB 1600MHz DDR3 Non-ECC
(Kit of 2) Intel XMP HyperX = DDR3-1600
Default = DDR3-1333 CL9-9-9-27
CL9-9-9 1.65V
1.5V

In other words, Yes! This should work just fine. The ram will just run at its default speed of 1333mhz.

You're board can handel; DDR SDRAM up to 200 or 266MHz DDR SDRAM memory module. Accommodates two "unbuffered", 2.5V 184-pin slots. Each slot supports up to 1 GB with a total maximum capacity of 2 GB. Return the Kingston memory you have installed if it is less than a year old. They should allow you to trade up to the MB's supported memory.
Two reach the MB's max memmory of 2GB. Buy two Kingston DIMMS of, "unbuffered", 2.5V 184-pin
