In the mother board the right slot is not working. their must be some dust in the slot just take a brush and clean the slot and insert the ram in it. if the problem continues then their must be problem in the motherboard. in mother board the ram controller chip must be weak so try to solve the problem by reparing the motherboard

Very similar problem of one stick of PC2700 DDR333(2.5) 512Mb will work in the left hand slot but not the right hand slot and when I tried to add another stick (different manufacturer) to the right hand slot the computer would not boot past the bios. My solution was to enter the bios at boot-up by holding the delete button and then under the advanced drop down menu select OS/2 onboard memory >64 and change it from disabled to enabled and save on exit and Bob's your uncle. Good luck Amchi

Ur board supports speeds of 60,100,133Mhz only. So, try for SDRAM Modules of PC100 or PC133 speeds!'Make and capacity' doesn't matter. Specifications U should be looking for: PC100/PC133 SDRAM DIMM Modules Note: Try equal capacities in both slots. or use only single slot.

It is my understanding that the BIOS on this motherboard can only recognize a maximum of 512 Meg of RAM. Use anymore than that and you can loose data as it gets lost in the unrecognized excess RAM.

Hi Guays, This motherboard has a max bus speed 0f 266Mhz. It will run 333mhz mmory at 266. IT will NOT run 400mhz memory succesfully. It will ONLY run twin 266 memory boards.

It may be the problem is a bit more complicated. I have two sticks of 256MB PC2700 memory. Both work happily in DIMM1 or DIMM2 by themselves. If I have one module working in DIMM1 and put the second module in DIMM2 ONLY the module in DIMM2 is picked up by BIOS and passed to Windows (verified by using Sandra by SiSoftware). It seems for some reason the insertion of memory in DIMM2 stops BIOS looking at DIMM1. In my case I am using the inbuilt VGA.

Is it ECC memory? What did you do to get one stick working? How many beeps? Do you have the owner's manual for the unit? Did you try to escape to BIOS to check settings? Here is what the ASUS site gives for memory specs, but the onwer's manual should have more info on upgrading memory: Memory 2 x 184-pin DIMM Sockets support max. 2GB PC3200/2700/2100 non-ECC DDR SDRAM memory If you don't have the manual you can get it here: http://dlsvr03.asus.com/pub/ASUS/mb/socket775/P5S800-VM/e2419_p5s800-vm.pdf

SOURCE: Upgrade from 512MB to 1GB
Have you tried both modules together? (leave the 512 in & add the 1G)

SOURCE: ASUS P5VDC-X motherboard wont recognise ram upgrade
this board supports only ddr1

SOURCE: ASUS P4S533-MX MOTHERBOARD FAILED TO RECOGNIZE DDR400/DDR333 RAM
Running two different speed memory sticks is a problem. All memory should be running at the same speed so take the DDR333 out and the beeping should stop. Alternatively take the DDR400 out and again the beeping should stop.
That's probably the shortest and easiest solve I've had for ages.

Thanks so much for the manual link it should help loads.
i think the memory is ECC because i got it from a properly licensed retailer (if that would make any difference?)
When the system beeps it doesn't stop, it just beeps constantly,
and when it beeps i can do NOTHING because it doesn't boot, load the bios or anything.
Strangely enough i think i may have been wrong, when i fitted the new IDE cable to my CD and DVD drives i tried the current stick in the right slot and it booted =O!!!!!
now i have the 256 mb in the right slot and the 512 in the left, however when i boot the bios still say 512 and i don't really see much of an increase in performance...
(Running UT03 in 1280x1024 smoothly may be a good sign but i think i could do that before ;p)
i have same problem.
I have 512 RAm memory and want to add 512 stick so it will be 1 GB. Now i use 2 stick 512 RAM, but bios said the memory only 512 MB. The problem is the same, the right slot didn't working. When i switch the stick, still the right side not working, so the problem not in the stick.
Do i have to install another software or else?
My problem is similar to the others. My MBoard is a P5S800-VM. I had 512 MB DDR 400, and bought 2 x 1G Corsair Select Matched. I can install either of the sticks in the left-hand slot and they work OK. But if I install in both slots the machine won't get to the POST screen, just gives 3 beeps over and over. Nothing on the monitor screen. Now it is NOT the RAM as either stick works in the left hand slot. It would seem that the right hand slot is faulty, but I find it strange that so many have the same problem with the right hand slot not working. Is it a fault with this motherboard? Or is there a method to get both slots to play happily and work. Oh and please, all those people with the lame and obvious responses 1. Dead RAM. 2. Faulty power supplies. Please don't clog up the board with your inanities. There is enough dross on the web now with wannabes without adding to it. Only answer if you have a REAL SOLUTION. Cheers Paladin.
i have the Same problem but i tried 1GB ram and it didn't work
Continuous beeping. I am testing it to find the error.
