New system won't work with memory in dual channel

System freezes at random places - won't finish boot-level diagnostics like memtest86. Works fine with both DIMMs in bank 1 and 2, but goes into failure behavior if memory is configured dual channel

    venkapatcha,
    Why do you believe it is the RAM? Why would the RAM work fine (20 passes of Memtest86+ no errors) in single channel but not in dual channel? I don't know what's wrong, but I'd think mobo before RAM. What am I missing?

I am using Intel D865GBF board having Dual Channel DDR400/333/255 SDRAM memory support. It is of 3GHZ, 256 MB RAM. The other day I bought 1GB RAM of Transcend and tried fitting the same. But the PC never...


Yes it can support 1GB ram. Max capacity up to 4GB of ram, meaning 1GB each on each slot. Make sure that the memory that you will be installing are either DDR400, DDR333 or DDR266. It could be the RAM is faulty if the one you bought is the DDR's that I mentioned

My Abit NF7-S v2.0 only works with one memory module at a time


I have read that there are dual memory controllers (duel channel) and that when you use 2GB like that you are using 1 memory controller for each stick. Maybe one of your memory controllers is bad... maybe popped a cap? Sounds like time for a new MB. See this thread...

Dual chanel problem


The beeps your hearing are known as bios beeps. They are telling you there is a problem with your memory. On your board the four dimm slots are split into two groups. A & B. Pg. 19 of your manual. Please read Pg. 21. Remove all your memory & put only two of your 512 Dimms into slot 1 & slot 3. Boot the Pc. Notice any beeps? Check your boot screen to see if bios sees the current memory as matched memory. Shut the Pc down & remove memory, replace with the other 2 Dimms in the same slots. Boot Pc. Again check to see if memory is being seen as matched memory & no beeps. Are you getting the idea here. What we are doing is trying to find which if any dimms may have a problem & which dimms work in which channel. Increase in size to 3 dimms or 1.5Gb in memory till you find a working order with no beeps. If you think 1 or more dimms may be faulty download a free test program called -Memtest86 at this link.
http://www.memtest.org/ Scroll down till you see - ** Memtest86+ V1.70 (01/14/2007) ** all typed in red. Here you can choose what type of bootable file you want. An iso or a zip. You can creat a bootable floppy or a bootable CD.
This should help. If you have trouble & need more information please post back.

Memory Installation problems


Intermittent problems just about always indicate a hardware problem. Assuming that you've put both memory cards in channel B and they worked fine, I would think the memory cards are OK. The only thing left at that point is the motherboard.
