The RAM modules may not be compatible with each other.
Try using the same make RAM modules.
Try Installing the 1Gb RAM module without the 256Mb RAM module.

Does Intel Pentium 4, 2 GHz Processor support 2GB DDR1 RAM..?


Type of RAM supported has nothing to do with the processor make & type in most cases. It is more important to verify that the motherboard supports this kind of RAM.
In general, most motherboards supporting the Intel Pentium 4 2.0 GHz processor support also DDR1 RAM.

Sorry but you cannot interchange ddr1 for ddr2. They are different kinds of RAM, and your chipset (865GV) can only accept ddr1. If you want to use ddr2, or even ddr3 then upgrade to a newer motherboard.

Can i use ddr2 ram in my pc inplace od ddr1 i cn purchase pc 07?


Hey there, Check for the slots given on your motherboard, whether all the slots are same; However a motherboard can support only one type of module either DDR1 or DDR2. your motherboard has only DDR1 slots. You cannot upgrade DDR1 to DDR2 cause the Memory Module or notches are different than eachother. Gimme Acknowladgement by rating me. Thanx - Romy Decostza

SYSTEM DOESN'T BOOT UP, GET LONG STEADY TONE WHEN SYSTEM STARTS


please check the system memory (RAM)
remove them and carefully clean in mouth with a clean A4 white sheet

or change the memory if possible...... and if problem still occur, please check the system processor too...
to check if the processor is functioning, remove the heat sink on the processor and boot the machine placing your finger on the processor chip.
it burns your finger after a short sec. BUT this should be done in a controlled way and after the memory had been tested for

Upgrading CPU


Yeah, it was a bit hard to find, not being a currernt model I was stuck on the Asus site trying to find out for you.
Then I found this site -
http://www.hardwarezone.com/articles/view.php?cid=6&id=465&pg=
It says
  • Socket 478 for Intel� Pentium 4 / Celeron processors
  • Intel� Pentium 4 Processors 1.4GHz - 2.53GHz or higher
  • Intel� Celeron Processors 1.7GHz - 1.8GHz or higher
  • Supports processors at 400 / 533MHz front side bus
    Or higher, it says. But doesn't say how higher. It's a fair assessment that if it is a Pentium 4 socket 478 chip, it should work. Then it's a case of choosing one that suits your budget.
    Have a look on the Asus site for the latest BIOS updates too - they might have a clue as to what chip you can go to -
    http://support.asus.com/download/download_item.aspx?model=P4S533-MX&product=1&type=All&SLanguage=en
    Er, no - it doesn't tell you. But if you go thru the page you will find BIOS version 1005 that " P4S533-MX BIOS 1005
    Support new Intel P4 CPU" and the latest bios is 1007.002

    There's a motherboard user manual further down on the page. Make sure you choose the English one.
    Seems the issue is FSB speed, 533 or 400. No big problem for most, but I did see a Pentium4 3.0Ghz chip at 800 FSB so just check the speed of the processor matches the specs the motherboard handles. Like you say, looks like the 3.2 might be too fast because of the FSB requirement.
    Remember, a P4 is going to be quicker than a celeron anyhow so just go with the fastest 533 FSB chip you can find.
    A short-cut to the english manual, here - http://dlcdnet.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/sock478/p4s533-mx/e1187_p4s533-mx.pdf

    Hi i have a asus P4s533-mx and with a 3GHZ processor and with a geforce6600 (agp) and the games tend to freeze and i have to reboot my system?. any help please


    It is the video card. Newer games are so graphic intensive that they freeze up the system if there is not enough video memory. You could try upgrading RAM but I had a problem running newer games until I installed a graphic card that had at least 512 mb video ram onboard. Hope this helps.
