Question about ASUS M2NPV-VM Motherboard
m2npv-mx, 160gb HD,512mb xfx 8600 GT.
I recently upgraded to a 2gb 800mhz ram with timings of 5-5-5-18.
My motherboard stoped working and i got it replaced after installing 2gb 800mhz ram because the vendor said that it was a motherbord issue.
Now with my replaced MB I face the same issue when i use 2 gb ram.
Question is that is it a Ram issue (which is highly unlickly after doing a memtest) or is it that my MB does not support 2gb 800mhz.
My MB manual says that 800mhz is supported and 2gb ram in each slot is supported.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

SOURCE: 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:

1. Shut down your computer & unplug the power cord.
2. Try cleaning the slot where the RAM module did notwork using non-oily contact cleaner spray.
3. After spraying the cleaner into the slot, use a brush made of animal hair to clean the slot.
4. Leave it for about 10 minutes to make sure that the liquid totally evaporated off the slot.
5. Install your memory module & power on the PC to test.
6. If it still did not work, swap the 2 memory modules & try again.

It states specifically in the manual that the two types of memory are not to be used at the same time on the motherboard. http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socket775/P5VDC-MX/E2545_P5VDC-MX.pdf

Your motherboard supports PC2-4300 @533Mhz and PC2-5300 @667Mhz not PC2-6400 @800Mhz. So no you will not be able to add the 800Mhz speed Ram to it. You can however add any 533 or 667 Mhz Ram. 667 is naturally faster and i would recommend that. Or better yet get a new motherboard with a higher data transfer rate capability to enjoy high speed computing :)

Tips for a great answer:
For dual-channel memory configuration (2), you may:
• install identical DIMMs in all four sockets OR
• install an identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A1 and DIMM_B1 (yellow
sockets) and another identical DIMM pair in DIMM_A2 and
DIMM_B2 (black sockets)
* Always use identical DDR2 DIMM pairs for dual-channel model. For
optimum compatibility, we recommend that you obtain memory modules
from the same vendor.
