Hi giovanni2,
Sorry but you're board does not support DDR2 memory.
Only 2 x 184-pin DIMM sockets support two 2.5V DDR SDRAMs (DDR400/333/266). There are two PC Chips M871G.
One is M871G (V1.5) & the other is M871G (V3.1). Neither support DDR2 memory. DDR2 memory used DIMM slots with 240-pin. The memory slots on you're board uses 184-pin. The board will not function with 240-pin memory.

    Power on ok but no display. ram not detect


    First disable the onboard VGA then put in a known good AGP graphics card to see if you can get through the POST if your BIOS i rejects the RAM chips it should give you a short series of beeps this would indicate that the memory is not compatible as a rule of thumb PC2700 speed memory is for a motherboard and processor with a 133Mhz FSB this is quaded to 533MHz. you can usually place faster memory but not slower memory look at the table below for rated Frontside Bus Speeds.

    CPU FSB DDR DIMM Type Memory Frequency
    ---------------------------------------------------------------------
    800 MHz PC3200/PC2700*/PC2100 400/333*/266 MHz (min busspeed 200Mhz)
    533 MHz PC2700/PC2100 333/266 MHz (min busspeed 133Mhz)
    400 MHz PC2100 266 MHz (min busspeed 100Mhz)

    I have 2 slots, currently only one is in use, it has 512 DDR 400 MHz PC 3200U. Can I use both slots and how much RAM will my SiS 963Lua support? Thanks. Richard


    Hey Richard, your board has 2 x 184 DIMM slots, that are both usable, with a maximum capacity of 2GB, supported RAM types are 333MHz, and 266MHz..

    Hope this is what you are looking for,

    Cheers,

    Graphic card for GA-8IPE1000 series


    HI there.
    There are loads of makers of memory and graphics cards out there to choose from.
    For the ram i would recommend Corsair or Kingston, you can get this ram as a matching pair so the both run at the same speed, the best ram to get is DDR 400.
    As for the graphics card, i recommend ATI radeon X1650 Pro 512MB graphics card.
    These upgrades will make your machine purr like a kitten with an excellent gaming experience.

    Good luck and thanks for choosing FixYa!!

    Parts upgrade


    Hi,

    The 333/400 is the speed of the RAM in MHz 333 and 400 MHz. That corresponds with PC2700 and PC3200 that is in your specification.
    250 GB hdd will work. Make sure that it is IDE and make sure that you connect the jumpers for master/slave the correct way.
    As for the graphic card. If you have this one 'VGA SPARKLE 7300GT 512MB DDR2 128BIT PCI-X' than it will not work because it is a PCI-X card not an AGP card. You will need an older card for this motherboard.

    best regards

    IS DDR SDRAM IS DDR II RAM OR DDR


    No. DDR replaced the SD in RAM so SDRAM and DDR RAM are two completely different things but each ram type has its own frequency hence you get SDRAM 100(mhz) and SDRAM 133(Mhz) just like you get DDR 1 RAM at 266(mhz) and 400(mhz) and DDR 2 RAM at 533(mhz) and 800(mhz). Therefore as you can see how these things differ, but if your mboard takes SDRAM that it can take and frequency of SDRAM but you must ensure that all the frequencies of all your RAM modules in all your slots correspond otherwise you will have problems, meaning that if you decide to use 133mhz RAM then all your RAM modules that you use must be the same. Let me know how you go. thanks
