Question about Gateway (4000811) Motherboard

1 Answer

No power to board

I am attempting to fix my friends computer. It is a gateway 310x, with everything stock except for a 1gb crucial pc2700 ddr 333mhz ram stick. I have individually tested each part of the computer in a different pc to see what was wrong. I assumed that the motherboard was fried so I buoght a new one the same model. Now after installing i have the same problem.
When i plug the psu into the pc i see a green led and if I hit the test switch on the psu I see a steady red led. The cpu fan starts as well when i do this. But no video.
This problem first started when my friend noticed that his internet was really slow, so he tried to power down his modem and pc. When he went to turn the pc back on it didn't start.

    Yea the power switch cable is in the right spot. I also took it out and tried it on a different pc. It worked fine.

    I took out the psu and tested it and also switched in a psu that I know works. The one that I was testing worked in a different pc, and the working psu didn't work in the computer i'm trying to fix.

    Did you test or swap the power supply?



    Did you get the power switch cable connected properly to the mobo?

    Have you tried connecting the power cord directly to wall socket then turning the computer ON.

I have a Biostar Motherboard K8M800-M7A and i just recently bought a kingston ram memory 1GB 400mhz KVR400X64C3A. Everywhere i look for on the internet says they are compatible but i dont get them to work....


Hello,
You are correct, this motherboard can use either 333mhz DDR (PC2700) or 400mhz DDR (3200) chips.
You may have a bad chip. Also make sure you are not mixing this chip with another of another speed. Its not good practise to mix 333mhz and 400mhz though some motherboards will still work like that.
Your best bet for compatibility is crucial DDR PC3200 • CL=3 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR400 • 2.6V • 128Meg x 64 •
Personally I have had bad luck with kingston ram myself.

I'm looking to upgrade the RAM in my father-in-law's computer (Compaq Presario SR1500NX desktop). All the "see what ram you need" searches on various websites that sell memory indicate PC2700 is...


This is the memory specs for the SR1500.
Presario SR1500NX Memory Specifications Standard Memory 256 MB (removable) Maximum Memory 2 GB Memory Expansion 2 sockets Memory Comments PC2700 DDR SDRAM DIMMs. CPU Type 2.0GHz AMD Sempron 3000+ Model Comments 333MHz FSB, VIA KM400A Chipset.

The PC2700 refers to the RAM speed, so you can use PC3200 which is faster RAM than PC2700, the PC3200 RAM should be more expensive not cheaper unless this supplier has stock he needs to unload.
You will not get any speed performance with the PC3200 RAM because the motherboard cannot make use of this faster RAM.

Whether DDR is compatible for hp pavilion dv1000 or only sdram is compatible. With which ram can i upgrade.


Hi,

According to the maintenance manual only 266Mhz Ram can be added to the notebook.
This would be SDRAM.
Hope this helps!!

Kind regards!!!

Can you add to much Ram for the processor to handle?


That additional RMA will be good for your computer so it will be much faster and don't worry everything should work fine there after adding new RAM to your computer....

RAM upgrade is not working


A 200-pin PC-3200 SODIMM should work in your machine but it will clock down to 333MHz. Your computer has 2 slots with a max of 512MB per slot (1GB total system memory). For maximum compatibility you should stick with a low density (16-chip - double-sided) PC2700 DDR-333 SODIMM with a CL of 2.5. Link below to see an example:

Memory installation


Most likely, it is a limitation of your motherboard. Not all motherboards or computers can physically read all types of memory or they may have memory limitations. For instance, I was working on an older Gateway this week. It had 2 memory slots but the maximum amount of memory the computer would recognize is 512 MB. Therefore, if I had put to 1 GB sticks in, provided the computer could use it, the maximum the computer would be able to see or use is 512 MB. In this instance, that is most likely the scenario. The best thing to do is to go to www.crucial.com and run the system scanner. It will tell you how many slots you have, what the maximum per slot capacity and the total capacity of your computer is.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate as fixya.

RAM upgrate


you can upgrade to a max of 2gb on that board. These are your 1gb options: 1GB PC2700 333MHz DDR Memory, 1GB PC2100 266MHz DDR Memory, and 1GB PC3200 400MHz Non-ECC Unbuffered 184-pin DDR DIMM Memory. Install a set of any of these and your off and running.
