Question about Intel D845GVSR Motherboard

2 Answers

Is there any problem in using a 1GB DDR with 400MHz speed in Intel D845GVSR board?

Hai friends,

I am having a PC with Intel D845GVSR Board and Pentium 4 Processor 2.40 GHz (Prescot). I was using a 128MB DDR with 333 MHz speed. For want of more speed, recently I have upgraded my RAM to 1GB. As 1GB RAM with 333MHz speed was not available in the market, I purchased a 1GB DDR with 400MHz speed. Though the manual provided by Intel says that this board will support DDR with 200/266/333 MHz speeds only, the retailer told me that it will support 400MHz also. When I installed the RAM into the Board, the PC worked without any problem. Now I want to know whether this will create any problem in the future. Kindly help me with your valuable advices.

Thank you.

Regards.

Does intel d845gvs1 motherboard supports DDR2 ram?


Hi there,
From an Intel page of this boards nearest "relatives" in the d845 series...

http://www.intel.com/support/motherboards/desktop/d845gvsr/sb/cs-008824.htm

It shows the following for memory speed options:
333, 266 and 200 MHz DDR SDRAM

And if I remember correctly, that era of motherboards came out when ddr2 didn't exist in the market. Beyond that, the above stated memory speeds show that this board didn't even support the PC-3200(400MHz) ram, which was the final step in DDR1 memory.

The short answer to your question is: No, that motherboard of yours does not support ddr2 ram.

I hope that gets you the information you need.

Hello,

Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700 or DDR PC3200 Non-ECC, Non-buffered RAM with a maximum of 1GB per slot.

You can refer to this site for more info on your RAM and motherboard.

The PC is not shutting down


It could ofcourse be a virus, so I'd recommend a system restore back to before that happened. If that doesn't help load a backup or do a clean install.
Could also be the power connector on your motherboard is shorting with the reset connector (they're right next to each other) Maybe you'd check that first, before the clean install. Don't know if that mobo has a reset button though. They're usually in the right bottom corner of the mobo, together with all the other front panel connectors. Maybe you could insulate the power and reset buttons?

Else you could always buy socket with an off/off switch, and connect the PC to that. Just shutting it down and than turning off the socket when the reboot starts won't hurt the PC.

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

A Titan 512mb 400Mhz CL3 DDR (used as 333 compatible) module shows up as only 256mb on a D845GVSR board. How can I use the full 512mb?


I have to assume that you have only one 256MB Memory Stick installed and that you can add another, or that you have two 256MB Memory sticks and one may be damaged. If this is the case try removing each and clean contacts by using a pencil eraser to help make solid contacts.

Regarding upgrading RAM


You'll need 184-pin ddr sdram memory
Supported speeds are 333, 266, and 200 mhz
Max memory for your motherboard is 2 gb, so the best you can get for your motherboard is:
2 x 1GB 333mhz 184-pin DDR SDRAM

Memory upgrade


you can use any DDR 180pin. But having two RAM of different speeds may not be compatible sometimes, so upgrade it to 1Gb by just using (1) 1Gb pc3200.
