Question about Biostar P4M80-M4 Motherboard
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.
