Memory type is the major problem with the 741GX chipset. Very touchy. I used Crucial PC3200 High Density memory to start with (2 x 1 gig Memory), system was lagging even though adjusted settings in bios. whenever a USB device was pluged in, the system would stop responding. Switched to low density memory and no problems since (Ultra PC3200 (2 x 1 gig Memory), and the USB device problem is also solved. I am running WinXP with SP2.

System not booting after ram upgrade


Sometimes it passes a poorly designed ram test, probably faulty ram, speeds always default to the slower of a pair. Some computers need all slots full. Did you buy it new? We have Re-PC for used components in the Seattle area, a great resource.

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

Your RAM needs to be:

  • DDR2 667, DDR2 533 or DDR2 400 MHz SDRAM DIMMs
  • Non-ECC DIMMs
  • 2 GB maximum total system memory
  • Unbuffered, single-sided or double-sided DIMMs with the following restriction: double-sided DIMMs with x16 organization are not supported

  • Make sure the New RAM is not bad.

    Ensure that the new RAM is the same type as your old one (DDR2 XXX)

    Install the old one back and make sure that your PC works.

    If it does, Take the Old RAM out and install the New RAM in the same slot as the old one.

    If the PC does not work with the new one, It is more than likely a bad stick of RAM

    Hope this helps

    I am using Intel D865GBF board having Dual Channel DDR400/333/255 SDRAM memory support. It is of 3GHZ, 256 MB RAM. The other day I bought 1GB RAM of Transcend and tried fitting the same. But the PC never...


    Yes it can support 1GB ram. Max capacity up to 4GB of ram, meaning 1GB each on each slot. Make sure that the memory that you will be installing are either DDR400, DDR333 or DDR266. It could be the RAM is faulty if the one you bought is the DDR's that I mentioned

    Help to upgrade memory of Dell Dimension 8100


    Im sure you mean 1GB of ram.

    Upgrading ram is possibly the easiest upgrade to a pc.Firstly shut down the computer and remove the wall plug.

    Remove the casing
    Make sure you touch something metal away from the case before entering the chassis of the computer... anti static wristbands are good.

    As soon as you open the case you will see the dimm slots where the ram goes.

    You will find two plastic clips on each ram module, just pull these back to release the ram and insert the new ram.You may need to push firmly down to lock them in.The clips will auto lock.

    Just be careful not to push to hard as to damage the mainboard.

    Memory Issues with P5GL - MX


    Some motherboards require that you install the memory in matched pairs. That could explain why they won't work together.

    When you put the 1 GB in alone, what slot did you put it in?
    I would suggest the blue A1 slot (closest to the CPU).

    It may be that you have a bad memory module.
    You could try the Windows Memory Diagnostic:

    Installed new RAM, PC would not boot up.


    Will the PC boot? It may just be loose. Try it again. The PC may not boot if it does'nt recognize the memory.
