    The memory started working in the board inexplicably... I tried a 1gig stick in it, didnt work, tried the 2 gig again, worked, put back the 512, worked.. and it's been working since.

The motherboard is really.. not that nice to RAM, i had 2 GeIL 1024MB DDR2 800 modules in at one point, i cleaned inside the case, and next time at bootup i got the beep beep beep.. apparantly one of the ports does not like 1gb no more.. had to get my head around it..

I got the same problem and when I ask for help on the net, surprise! Lots of cases like ours... some MoBo accept 1G in each slot and others accept only one, in my case, it doesn´t accept even one in one slot. Memory is Kingston, the best one in my opinion, but it only works with 512. I´m taking my receipt and I´ll change for another model.
That´s my tip, change it while ECS doesn´t solve this problem!

The motherboard only supports 2gigs of memory. the other problem might be the 2gig stick itself since its probabaly damaged or broken if it came from a generic brand or was cheap priced. you should run memtest to see if it reads the 2gig stick

Hello,
This motherboard supports maximum 2 gig memory (please refer to this link). However, it has 2 memory slots where only 1 gig memory will hold in each slot.

Try putting in 2 - 1g memory module and see if that works.

Thanks,
Lolita

I have a vgn-b3vp (pcg-5b1m) sony laptop, can i upgrade the memory if it has 512 of none-removable memory and only 1 bank.


Yes, you can use the 1 bank and get higher graded memory, another 512 in the 1 bank would make 1gig, you can probable get as much as 2 gig in the bank to make a total of 2.5 gigs by buying a 2 gig memory stick.

I currently have just 256mps of memory ram on my dell dimension 2400. i want to upgrade. my manual says the maxium is 1024 mbs. can i install 1gb of ram or should i get 512 mbs? i have windows xp os. thank...


1024 is 1 gig of ram. Some older motherboards require you to put in ram in pairs but I don't think your system is one of those but if you have manual or can download manual you should check to be sure. If you don't need a pair then yes you can remove the 256 meg stick and add a 1 gig stick or you can put in 2 512 meg sticks. Should run a lot better as windows recommends at least 512 megs of ram.

Wont boot 2 windows xp home when 2 gig memory installed,works with 1 gig,tried both slots with both 1 gig sticks.Screen goes black.


Seems the memory is not comatable with the motherboard. Replace the old memory and visit http://www.crucial.com, they have a scanner tool which will confirm what mem can be installed.

The problem must be the amount of total memory. Maybe the board supports only 1 gig. Chek the manual.

Memory/Graphic problem


This might have something to do with DVMT or Digital Video Memory Technology. Basically, the amount of video memory is dependent on the amount of memory installed. I'm not very familiar with acer system BIOS but try to look for VIDEO under system BIOS and try to select any fixed video memory if possible. you can also try to disable DVMT.
