Question about ASUS P5GD1-VM Motherboard

Adding RAM Hi, My current memory is 2x 512 and decided to add 2x1gb, system became unstable, did a 'check it diagnostic' resulting in 'memory allocation failed'? I have installed the new 1gb in individually and no problem but when I install them both the same issue occurs. Thanks Huw.

    Hi,

    Thanks for that but I may not have explained it quite correctly.

    It works fine with 2x512 (original setup) but not with 2x1024.It does work with 1x1024.

Before you go further, make sure you are putting one of each 1G in the blue slots, and the 512M sticks in the other ones. Otherwise, you may have a defective memory slot. If you say it works fine with the 2x512 alone, and with the 2x1024 alone, that seems to be the only thing left is the memory slots. You may just have to run the 2x1024 (which wouldn't be bad). Also, make sure your memory settings are not incorrectly modified in the BIOS settings.

Hello Sir, I had 512 MB 533 MHz DDR2 RAM(Dynet). Now I have bought 1 GB 667 MHz DDR2 RAM(Dynet). My system has 2 slots. In one slot, I have 512 MB RAM and in another slot, I installed 1 GB RAM that I have...


The Intel D102GGC2 uses a Dual Channel Memory Architecture meaning that both slots need to be running at the same speeds. I would suggest getting another 667 MHz RAM card and installing it along side your current one, just as I reminder this motherboard only supports 2GB RAM Max so don't get one that is above 1GB.

I have a 512 mb 667mhz sdram on D102Ggc2 board.now i decided to up grade memory. Can i upgrade system memory without lose this 512 mb.


Hi,
Yes you can. but make sure that you buy the exact same type of RAM stick that you have and put it in the other RAM slot so the Dual Channel feature will be active (dual channel makes data transmission/processing faster) and making your systems memory 1GB. However, your motherboard can utilize or handle up to 2GB or RAM so you can put also a 1GB RAM stick which will make your systems memory a total of 1.5GB (that will be the case if you really dont want to lose the 512MB that you currently have,
Hope this helps.

Memory won't add on a Gigabyte GA-6VEML


Hi,
this will be dependant on the bios version. or if the 2 ram modules are identical or not. if they,re a matched pair. the motherboard may not like or run in dual-channel mode. sometimes adjustable in the systems bios. the other suggestion, is to try 1 stick of ram, in each slot individually. This will eliminate A Faulty Slot. Failing any Of The Above. try 2 x 256mb sticks, And Obtain The Latest Bios Update from The Manufacturers Website.

ECS 915-A(1.1) Ram Reading Issues


Is it a single ram module or dual ie. 2x 1gig ddr2 533?
What motherboard are you running?
Is it possible that you've given a static charge out while handling the ram?

Memory confusion different readings


It sounds like something isnt working right, what operating system are you using, Vista? I would take out the original 512 and see what it says after, often ram isnt compatible if it is too different in size and speeds. Also, if your motherboard supports dual channel ram and you have the extra 512 chip it wont run in dual channel mode, you would run better with just the 2 chips then the added 512 chip.

Cant run dual channel.


You can update your chipst nVIDIA nForce4 SLi.
This is not a easy task. It requires you to download the proper drivers. nForce will do this for you by checking your current system. Click this link to nForce:
http://www.nvidia.com/Download/index.aspx?lang=en-us

Do not update your system by doing an install. You will have to remove the current nForce devices manually through device manager. (DO NOT restart your PC untill you have replaced the nForce drivers with updated nForce software).
If you do, you'll find your going to have to do a complete reinstall of windows & you will loose your current data.
Updating your ssocket 939 will run better. Your dual channel should post after update. It was a waste searching EPoX for faq's. Couldn't even download their/your manual. Please read recommended files to help with the update, these are worth every minute. (I learned the hard way).

Good Luck & Kind Regards.
& please vote.

Upgrade from 512MB to 1GB


The specs on the memory are correct, so you purchased the correct type of memory for this motherboard. If your getting no video when you power on with the 1gb stick, I would be willing to bet the 1gb stick is bad. Can you return it and try another stick?
