Question about ASUS M2NPV-VM Motherboard

M2npv-mx with 2 gb 800mhz

Sys Config:
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.

    If your RAM module is a high-density RAM module & your motherboard only supports low-density RAM modules, then the only solution for your problem is to replace your memory module with a low-density one.

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:

SOURCE: one of my ddr2 ram slot is not responding

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.

SOURCE: Do I need to buy 2 DDR2 Ram for my ASUS P5VDC-MX Motherboard?

It states specifically in the manual that the two types of memory are not to be used at the same time on the motherboard.

SOURCE: does ASUS P5GC-MX/1333 Motherboard supports

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 :)

The manual for your motherboard states:

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.

Hi there!
There are several reasons for this, It's possible that your graphics card cannot handle the resolution you are playing at, the CPU generates too much heat on load, corrupted data on the game, power supply unit is not enough.
However, I would suggest you try lowering the resolution on the game (it may also depend on what game you are playing). Or, try reinstalling the game.
Regarding the normal windows mode, you may be referring to a different operating system like XP.
Hope this helps!

Can asus p5gz-mx support 2gb kingston 800mhz ram

Click here to view the Specifications of your computer mainboard.

Unfortunately only 2 x DIMM, max. 2GB, DDR2 533/400 MHz memory modules are supported.
Meaning that it is not possible for the 2gb kingston 800mhz RAM to run, according to the Specs.

Sorry to inform you of this fact!

Upgrading memory from 512mb to 2gb but the memory i have seen says 800MHz yet i have seen somewhere on my computer 533MHz is this something else?also i can go to 4gb would this be to big a step and a waste...

upgrading to 2GB will have a significant increase in speed, the jump from 2GB to 4 GB will be faster but the additional speed increase will be less than the 512 to 2 GB jump. In my book, get as much RAM as you can afford, for go with 4 GB. THe 533 Front side bus is set by the processor installed on the MB, using 800 Mhz RAM will have no ill effect as it is backwards compatible to 533

Roll back the drivers to the original that worked and leave it there. Some times an update acts more like a downdate and screws things up. If your getting blue screens, its a hardware failure and is most likely do to the drivers just not being compatible with your system config.

You could also try updating the BIOS on the mainboard and see if that improves it.

I had alot of issues with ATI's catalyst on my last computer. the program kept causing problems so i removed catalyst and installed just the drivers and it worked great after that.
