Question about ASUS P4GE-MX Motherboard

2 Answers

Plugged the wrong RAM and now the motherboard only lights up HDD LED

I replaced the original DDR333 RAM with two new pieces of Registered EPP-ROM DDR400 RAM from a Xeon server, and the computer turns on only with the HDD LED lit up and CPU fan on. Put the original RAM back but it stayed the same.

Any way to fix it? Thanks!

    Thanks for the advices. That helps me certify the mobo dead. Let this be an example to those attempting to swap RAM! Read your manual for compatibility first!!

Try turning the computer completely off, pull the plug, then push down on the power button for 5 seconds, then connect the power plug again.

This would be a last attempt. It may restore your system to working order only if no permanent damage was done by having the wrong type of RAM in your machine.

Otherwise the motherboard may need to be replaced.

Try leaving it unplugged for a few minutes. if that doesn't work, then turn it back off, remove the ram completely, reboot without it in there, then turn it back off, then reinstall the original ram, then turn on again. (might sound ridiculous, but the computer is just not recognizing the ram) you'll want to be sure that it is completely pushed in also. otherwise it will fail

I have a intel 845gvsr board, want to replace a Ram. What type of RAM is suitable for this board?


Your Intel D845GVSR has,

1. Two ram slots.

2.Maximum Amount of ram is 1GB for EACH ram slot.

3.Maximum TOTAL Amount is 2GB, (1GB in each ram slot)

4.Uses DDR Sdram at 400MHz, (PC3200), OR
DDR Sdram at 533MHz, (PC4200)

This is an example of DDR Sdram at 400MHz, (PC3200),

(Not advertising for this website. There are many places to buy ram memory)
512MB + 512MB = 1024MB, or also stated as 1GB
1024MB = 1GB

Hmmm.... mainly you have:
-20 or 24-pins connector, that is unique and goes directly to motherboard (powers motherboard and its components)
-4 or 8-pins connector that powers CPU
-the rest would be connectors for ROM (CD/DVD/BlueRay) and HDD devices (there are: molex and sata power conectors)

If you totaly unshure, there is manual:

LED on abit ST6


every motherboard should have a led light always on to indicate that there if power in it. the problem with system rebooting has to do with the ram or processor, since you said it does not recognize the hdd at times that means that the ram is working abnormally i.e it is week, u know ram means random access memory, so change the ram and make sure u get the right ram for your system

My Intel D102GGC and Mercury 915GLV motherboard not wake up


Is this new ram or have you used it in this machine previously?

A couple of things can cause what you describe, one of them being the wrong voltage of ram. This page contains the list of memory that your system can use, check the part number on your current ram in google to find out what voltage it runs at (the recommended voltage for your board is 1.8v).

Other than that you may want to do a CMOS reset by changing the jumper block (should be described in your mobo manual), powering the machine on briefly, power it down (unplug) and return the jumper to it's original location. Now try to post the machine.
