Perhaps the RAM does not like to coexist. I assume they are from different manufacturers. As mentioned already, try the modules by themselves to rule out faulty RAM or incompatibility.

Have you checked with one module at a time to rule out faulty RAM?

I have e-machines T5026 with an Intel Corporation D915GAG mother board which currently has 1.5GB Dual-Channel DDR @ 133MHz (3-3-3-8). I am trying to add 1 gig of PNY RAM, #MD1024SD1-400. When I installed...


You may be using the wrong parity or out Latency ram. if they are not similar in latency they will not work in tandem. Make sure both of the ram's are the same MHZ and CS latency. Also, you may have bad ram as well. Try using the new ram first to see if the computer posts, if it does, input the old ram in the second slot, and if that doesnt work, the ram is not compatible with each other.

I had an intel d865 perl motherboard with a 2.8 processor and 4 gigs of ram, computeer ran great for years then one day i shorted the motehrboard and fried it, i ordered a brand new one and installed it...


Hi,

Thanks for asking FixYa for help. My name is Jeff and I will be assisting you today.

If you are using the same motherboard as the first one, what you are experiencing is too weird to worry over. Is it still under warranty? I'd say you have proved that the MB is deffective. Take it back for a refund or exchange.

If you are in need of additional help, please let us know.

Thank you for allowing us to help you today.

I currently Have I Gig of Ram. I am trying to install 2 x 1 Gig of Matched Ram in the Correct slots but the computer will not boot up with 2 sticks of Ram. If I take either one out it boots up fine


What slots you put the RAM into can make a difference - Assuming you have more than 2 slots, try staggering the RAM placement so there's an empty slot between the 2 RAM sticks. You'd have to look up your motherboard model online to see what specific instructions there are.

Installed RAM and now monitor has no display. I


The splash screen with the LG Flatron logo is the monitor's splash screen not the PCs.
The machine is NOT booting up the splash screen is the monitor coming on.
Remove the 1Gb stick an see if the machine performs normally.
If it does then power it off, remove the power cord and CAREFULLY reinstall the new stick.
If it fails to boot you may have a defective memory module.
If the machine fails to boot with the new stick removed make sure you have the original memory seated properly and all cables securely attached

Gigabyte k8m800-8237 won't boot with 2nd gig ram installed.


Could have been dusty. Find a copy of Memtest and run it to check things out. Errors could mean a bad stick or bad slot.

Switch sticks around in various combinations (2 gig in slot one, 1 gig in slot two, switch, try other stick, etc) and see if it is the memory or the motherboard.

Ram DDR2


Hi Terry, you're board, PC Chips P23G only supports a max memory of 2GB. Please check pg. 9 of your manual, Installing Memory Modules.
Please be noted you can NOT use DIMM DDRII 1~2 (DDR2 533/400) and DIMM DDR1~2 (DDR 400/333) simultaneously. Only use either DDR2(533/400) or DDR(400/333) memory modules! (You should check the spec's of the other board before inserting memory that may not be supported). (You can damage the memory)
Click the link listed below for you're PC Chips P23G board.
Suggest you save this link to you're favorites.
http://www.pcchips.com.tw/PCCWeb/Products/ProductsDetail.aspx?MenuID=92&LanID=2&DetailID=387&DetailName=BIOS

You will notice there is a fix for:
Patch code to fix REALTEK clock buffer sometimes couldn't detect DDR2.
Once there, click BIOS. Scrol down to the bottom of the page & read special notes. Than click the drop down menu & pick a download site. Creat a folder on you're desktop to store the download. Uncompress the .zip file. You will than have a folder named 070115 & a ROM file named 070115.ROM
This bios flash program requires you to use a floppy disk drive to flash the bios.
Follow the instruction at this link to flash you're bios.

If you find to hard to folow you can pick another from this google search site.

2 gigs of ram


Re-check your manual at pg. 1-12. 1.9.1 Memory Configurations.
Since you know one bank of memory works fine in a certain slot. Now try the other in the same slot.
