Question about ASUS P4P800-X Pentium Motherboard

2 Answers

Burnt DDR DIMM socket

My motherboard model is an Asus P4P800-X. It has 4 DIMM sockets, two are blue and the other two are black. The order of these sockets is blue, black, blue, black, and their specific names are DIMM A1, DIMM A2, DIMM B1, and DIMM B2 respectively. The problem is, the DIMM A1 socket is burnt and I have 3 others left to use. If one of the sockets are out of commision, is it still possible to use the other 3? Note, I have to use the blue DIMMs first and since one is out of commision, I have a second blue DIMM to use. Is it possible to install a DDR module without having to put it into the first DIMM?

You can probably use the other 3. But 1 wont run as DDR.
How did you get it burnt?

It may be possible, but the system may very well become unstable at times. The purpose of the different color dimms is either daul band memory and or hypertheading, which means the memory needs to be matched and in pairs to work correctly. I would try one pair in the same colored slots in which one of them is not burnt. Also can you get it to boot with one stick of ram in a slot? Have you seen this board boot at all with 1 burnt slot (Known Good Board). Hope this was informative to you. Good Luck, Let me know how it works out.

HP Pavilion Media Center PC not detecting memory in slots 3 & 4.All memory works in slots 1 &2.Memory is all the same.


Info from the manual:

Memory configurations

You can install 128 MB, 256 MB, 512 MB, and 1GB DDR SDRAM DIMMs into the DIMM sockets using the memory configurations in this section.

• Install only identical (the same type and size) DDR DIMM pairs

using the recommended configurations.

• Make sure that the memory frequency matches the CPU FSB

(Front Side Bus). Refer to the Memory frequency/CPU FSB

synchronization table on the next page.

• This motherboard does not support double-sided 16-bit DDR DIMMs.

• Do not create a three-DIMM configuration in dual-channel mode. The
third DIMM is ignored in the dual-channel operation.

Anyone know why an ASUS PTGD1-LA motherboard will only take memory in slots A1 and A1 or A1 and B1 but not anything in B with both in A filled? Brand new memory.


HI,

The board has specific requirements for memory. Here's the Memory Configurations :

  • You may install 256 MB. 512 MB and 1 GB unbuffered non-ECC DRR DIMMs into the DIMM sockets using the memory configurations in this section.

• Installing DDR DIMM. Other than the recommended configurations may cause memory sizing or system boot failure.

• In dual-channel configurations, install only Identical (the same type and size) DDR DIMM pairs for each channel.

• Always install DIMMs with the same CAS Latency. For optimum compatibility , It Is recommended that you obtain memory modules from the same vendor

• Double-sided x 16 modules are not supported on this motherboard.

• Due to chipset resource allocation, the system may detect less than 4 GB system memory when you installed four 1 GB memory modules.


For dual-channel configuration you may:

install identical DIMMs in all four sockets

• install identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A1 and DlMM_B1 (blue sockets) and identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A2 and DIMM_B2 (black sockets)

• install same size DIMMs in DIMM_A1 and DIMM_B1 (blue sockets) and another same size pair in DIMM_A2 aid DIMM_B2 (black sockets)

Hopefully this will help understand how to install the new memory.

Thanks Mark

Yes, it will work. Remember that all memory will operate at the speed of the slowest memory though so unless you're completely replacing the memory it won't increase the speed of the memory.

Strange ram problem: just one socket works


Try cleaning the socket with a small clean paint brush or similar to this... then clean the memory socket-in area with an eraser, best eraser is the black area of RABBIT brand... or Mongol eraser.. Just clean that part and try again...

I hope it works.... Works most on my customers here on my shop.
