Question about ASUS P4P800-X Pentium Motherboard
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.

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.
