Hi wspic
One of the sticks could be defective .
Or the slots could need a good clean up . Use a fine brush with methanol and make shure every thing has dried before reinserting the sticks . Check the pins and clean them the same way .
Now , if your system is running in 32-bit , the max usable ram is limited to 2GB .
Best regards ,
fanaudi .

Just installed 2 2GB cards (Corsair VS2GB800D2) to replace the 1 1GB card in my emachines EL1200 series. Computer will not boot. replaced the old card and it booted right up.


Will it boot with only ONE of the 2GB memory-sticks installed?
Will it boot with ONE of the 2GB memory-sticks AND one of the 1GB memory-sticks?

Look closely at the 1GB memory-sticks.
Does the label show 'DDR266' or 'DDR333' or 'DDR400' or 'PC2100' or 'PC2700' or 'PC3200' ?
Do the 2GB memory-sticks have _identical_ information?
It's definitely _not_ acceptable to have "slower" RAM (smaller numbers) in the new RAM,
but it _might_ be acceptable to have "faster" RAM (larger numbers).

P5RD2-VM recognises only 2 GB


Hi,
According to Asus, the max supported memory is 2 gig. That second stick of 512 is not needed and the error shown is in memory configuration.

Ram assurance


The schematic layout of the P5VDC-MX on the user manual shows that there are 4 DIMM banks, set as 2 X 2 rows, 2 DDR2 and 2 DDR.

The user manual explicity states:

I am running different frequency modules without any problems. With the info above provided by ASUS, it may be possible that a fix could be available with a BIOS update. Otherwise, you can opt to use a lower capacity RAM along with your 1GB Corsair.

Hope this helps.

Your motherboard supports DDR SDRam I assume the ram sticks you bought fit in the socket correctly and are the right way round?
Try the computer with each ram stick seperately. Just because ram is new doesnt mean its not defective.
What configurations do you have?
Are you using two corsair sticks or two kingston or a mix of both and what models are they?

2G Memory Upgrade


I had similar problem with CORSAIR XMS2 2GB (2 x 1GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory

If this is your RAM:
Corsair 1024MB Value Select PC2-4200 (533MHz) DDR2 RAM, 128Mx64non-ECC, 240-pin DIMM, Unbuffered, CL4, Lifetime warranty (VS1GB533D2) Then it is high density. You need low density to work, look for one ending with an 8, not 64.
