Question about PC Chips A21G Motherboard
This motherboard has the memory dual channel feature and only has 2 memory slots. Right now I am using just one with 521 but I can not start the system. Should I use the 2 slots with the same size memory?
Hi, Your system would run better with 2 equal RAM chips but will also run well enough on one. the main reason for a system not to boot is that the Ram is not fitted properly or in the Wrong dimm slot. Use a torch and see which slot is marked as dimm1, this is usualy the one nearest the CPU.
If this does not work then test the RAM in another computer, it may be faulty.

You can install 128 MB, 256 MB, 512 MB, and 1GB DDR SDRAM DIMMs into the DIMM sockets using the memory configurations in this section.
• Install only identical (the same type and size) DDR DIMM pairs
using the recommended configurations.
• Make sure that the memory frequency matches the CPU FSB
(Front Side Bus). Refer to the Memory frequency/CPU FSB
synchronization table on the next page.
• This motherboard does not support double-sided 16-bit DDR DIMMs.
• Do not create a three-DIMM configuration in dual-channel mode. The
third DIMM is ignored in the dual-channel operation.
