Question about Asrock K7VT4A-Pro Motherboard

3 Answers

K7VT4A-Pro Mobo I'm trying to figure out this RAM configuration. The Manual Says: Memory: 2 DDR DIMM slots: DDR1and DDR2 PC2100 (DDR266) / PC2700 (DDR333) for 2 DDR DIMM slots, Max. 2GB; PC3200 (DDR400) for 1 DDR DIMM slot, Max. 1GB I really want to use the DDR 400, but this doesn't make sense. If I use DDR 400 does it have to be both slots but only equal 1GB instead of 2GB? How can I use DDR 400 on this mother board???

    oh haha, so that note in the manual just means that I can only put 1 GB of either 266, 333,or 400 in each slot which equals 2Gb, right?
    I CAN use two sticks of 1GB DDR400 RAM?

  • MooCrew Jun 19, 2008

    Memory
    - Supports DDR400*/333/266 non-ECC, un-buffered memory
    - DIMM slots: 2
    - Max. capacity of system memory: 2GB

    *DDR400 for 1 DDR DIMM slot, Max. 1GB


    It's really that easy?
    I can use two sticks of DDR400 = 2GB total.

    Why would they make a * for it ???

Hello the homepage is here:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/VIA/K7VT4A%20PRO/

Supports DDR400 high performance memory
Max. capacity of system memory: 2GB
DDR400 for 1 DDR DIMM slot, Max. 1GB


DDR 2 just means the other slot or socket
It does not mean the mainboard supports DDR 2 ram.

Best of luck

What is the max size of ddr400 memory you can fit into ddr1 & ddr2 dimm slots on a p4vm8 mother board


1) Total maximum amount for motherboard is 2GB.

2) There are 2 Ram Memory slots.

3) Maximum amount for EACH ram memory slot is 1GB.

Either DDR Sdram at 266MegaHertz, or 333MHz, or 400MHz.
PC2100, PC2700, and PC3200, respectively.

http://www.asrock.com/mb/VIA/P4VM8/

There is no DDR1 and DDR2 slots, in a manner of speaking.

May be marked on your motherboard that way, but stating it that way on a computer product support website = No.

You're going to make someone think, you don't know what you are talking about.

They may think you are referring to DDR Sdram, and DDR2 Sdram, and they know the motherboard only uses DDR Sdram ram memory.

Suggest state Slot 1 and Slot 2; or DIMM 1 and DIMM 2.

Asrock g31 m motherboard will only post if only one ram slot occupied , will not post if both slots are used , identical matched pair of ram ddr 667 800 mhz crucial ballistix both tested in another ri


I did some research. You didn't say what density the RAM was, but everything I can find on the Ballistix 800 MHZ DDR2 states that it runs at 2.2V. The standard for DDR2 RAM is 1.8V. You motherboard has both and AUTO and manual setting capability for memory (DRAM) voltage. It is possible that the AUTOP feature is not detecting the need for 2.2V, and that with only one DIMM installled, the memory marginally functions, but with the extra loading of the second it will not. Boot the system with the single DIMM, go to the BIOS, and set the DRAM voltage manually to the 2.01V setting (Verify by the part number of the RAM with the CRUCIAL website that is uses 2.2V before doing this). Once you have changed the voltage in BIOS, shut down and add the second DIMM and see if things improve.

I wish to add RAM in the PC. Mine motherboard-Epox-EP-4BDA533(I). ID(identification)-05/09/2003-i845d-6A69VPA8C-00. On it costs RAM 256Mb -DDR PC2100 266Mg FSB-400Mg. How many Mb it is possible to add....



Manufacturer Specifications - EPoX EP-4BDA533I Number of Slots:
Slot 1
Slot 2
Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700,DDR PC3200 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.*
*Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory.
  • 184-pin DIMM Banking: 2 (2 banks of 1)
  • Chipset: Intel 845D
  • Error Detection Support: ECC and non-ECC
  • Graphics Support: AGP 4X
  • Max Component Density: 512Mb
  • Max Unbuffered DDR SDRAM: 2048MB
  • Module Types Supported: Unbuffered only
  • Supported DRAM Types: DDR SDRAM only
  • USB Support: 1.x Compliant
Q: What memory goes into my computer, and will a faster speed be backward-compatible?
A: DDR memory with support for DDR PC2700,DDR PC3200 speeds.
Because DDR memory is backward-compatible, you can safely upgrade your system with any of the guaranteed-compatible DDR speeds listed below, even if your manual calls for PC1600 or PC2100 speeds.
Q: How much memory can my computer handle?
A: 2048MB.
Adding the maximum amount of memory will improve performance and help extend the useful life of your system as you run increasingly demanding software applications in the future.
Q: Do I have to install matching pairs?
A: No.
No, you can install modules one at a time, and you can mix different densities of modules in your computer. But if your computer supports dual-channel memory configurations, you should install in identical pairs (preferably in kits) for optimal performance.
Q: Does my computer support dual-channel memory?
A: No.
Your system does not support dual channel.
Q: Does my computer support ECC memory?
A: Yes.
Your system supports ECC. You can put non-ECC modules into an ECC system, but be sure not to mix ECC and non-ECC modules within a system. Install the same type of modules that are already in your system.

Ram issue with compaq presario 5000 G1 Series


as you can see from the information below there are different requirements for RAM to work stable in your system . Most importand are the RAM VOLTAGE , SPEED , and Configuration of chips. you will need to consult the manual for qualified RAM requirements. Some RAM will work but not very stable. make sure the voltage supplied by your system is enough for the RAM. If you are running DDR RAM in dual channel mode, the ram needs to be the same size also. DIMM modules for the HP computer must meet the following requirements
  • The number of pins on the DIMM must match the socket type.
  • DDR memory requires a 184-pin slot and 1.8 operating voltage.
  • DDR2 memory is not compatible with DDR1 memory and requires a 240-pin slot and 2.5 operating voltage.
  • Synchronous dynamic random access memory (SDRAM): Only use DDR type SDRAM memory if the computer came with DDR-SDRAM.
  • SO-DIMM modules for the HP computer must meet the following requirements
    • The number of pins on the DIMM must match the socket type.
    • SO-DIMM memory requires a 200-pin slot.
    • DDR2 SO-DIMMs are not compatible with DDR1 DIMM and DDR2 DIMM memory modules.
    • With a computer running at a system bus of 533 MHz or 667 MHz, use a PC2-4200 (DDR2 DIMM 533) type.
    • The following requirements must be met for the DDR memory to function in dual channel mode:
      • Same density (256MB, 512MB, etc.)
      • Same DRAM chip technology (x8 or x16)
      • All either single-sided or dual-sided
      • Matched in both Channel A and Channel B memory channels

SAMSUNG 1GB RAM 400MHZ PC3200


RAM has to be

Four 184-pin DDR DIMM sockets

Supports PC3200 (400 MHz) /PC2700 (333 MHz) / PC2100 (266 MHz) DDR DIMM type

Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory module is 1 GB

Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory is 4 GB
It has to be the same.


• If you are replacing a memory module, put the
new memory module in the same memory slot
from which the old memory was removed.
Or
• If you are adding a memory module, install the
new module into the socket nearest the
preinstalled module, and install additional
modules in the next available sockets

Can't Install RAM in DDR2 and DDR3 DIMM slots


You cannot use DDR and DDR2 ram at the same time, because its always been like that (ie, no SD and DDR, or SD and RIMM)

What you should do is switch to all DDR2 sticks.

No, DDR400 is just DDR RAM. DDR2 is newer RAM and is not compatable with older systems that take DDR RAM. Sorry.
