I started off with 256mb and upgraded to 512mb. I stuck in the chip and did nothing more. Windows programs like Advanced System Care seem to notice the additional chip but I was in CMOS the other day and some setting there was still reading 256mb. Do I need to adjust this to get complete functionality out of the second chip?

You dont have to config when adding memory. Are you adding a correct card? you can go to and click on scan or creck my system to see what the board has and will take

Hi all, I need some advice how to get maximum out from my desktops memory.

I had 4GB of RAM installed already in my desktop, when I decided to add another 4GB.
The things is I couldnt find the same memory and finally went with
another company's memeory card.

Problem is, that when I checked with "CPU-Z" program, the status of my memory
card, it showed me 533Mhz and when added additional 4GB, the Mhz went down
to 399Mhz

Firstly, I already had CORSAIR XMS2 (CM2X2048-8500C5) DDR2 memory, what
should be 1066Mhz and added KINGSTON 2-KIT KHX8500D2K2/4G, what is
also 1066Mhz.

My question is, how come the Mhz is down to 533Mhz and when
added additional 4GB, down to 399Mhz?

Thank You guys and girls, for Your time!

A:Why my memory cards Mhz's are low?

I haven't found anything in the manual that states this. but some motherboards clock the RAM down if all 4 DIMM slots are populated.

If you set the RAM frequency, voltage, and timings manually in the BIOS, you may be able to get it work reliably at the rated frequency.

A:Xp Memory Cards?

Your friend is correct. But as cheap as RAM is I would recommend 512mb instead of 256mb. There are some things you can do while waiting for the RAM to come in. Start by running Start>Programs>Accessories>System Tools>Disk Cleanup. Go into Safe Mode and run [b]Defrag, located next to disk cleanup. Start with that and let us know if it helps. The RAM will make the big difference.Good luck and Happy New Year.

I have a new Canon S3 IS digital camera which takes SD memory cards. The card that came with it is only 16 mb. I find, on the Internet, some good prices in 1 GB miniSecure Digital cards. My only concern is that the illustrations of these mini cards show a slightly different shape than that of the 16 mb. SD disk which came with the camera. These 1 GB. SD cards come with adapters. I'm not sure just how these adapters fit into the total picture. Any help or suggestions will be appreciated.

A:Question re: SD Memory Cards

The mini SD is a much smaller size. The adapter will let it work in your camera but I would go with a standard sized SD card and avoid the adapter. I would also get something rated at least 40X. A “standard” speed SD card might slow your cycle times and cause the movies to drop frames.

Also a MEMORY CARD is a TYPE of RAM, but what you a looking for is RAM.
Ensure you use the correct terminology.

MEMORY cards are REMOVABLE. RAM generally is NOT (and is designed to be semi-permanent.)

no idea what the problem is. I can read/write to a usb stick no problem, but when it comes to trying to use my memory card reader to read/write to a memory card, its a no go.

I actually have TWO usb card readers, one is about a year old, second i just bought from dell a week ago (iogear). Both have the exact same problem, upon plugging in the reader with no cards in them, the computer detects them and shows the various empty drives in my computer.

Once I plug in a memory card, you can tell the computer detected it because I get the hourglass for a brief second, but nothing shows up. Ive tried multiple compact flash and SD cards, all the same result..... arrrgh

I'm running Windows 7 64bit

PS. I verified both readers/all cards are working by plugging them into WindowsXP and WinVista machines

If I have the wrong forum, please excuse me....... and move it if necessary.


A:Memory Cards? Question, please....

A memory card, is external memory.
You have some built in memory, in the player its self.

There should be a place on your player that looks like a slot.
You would slide the memory card in it.

Recently I had a problem with the computer beeping on start-up and was advised to re-seat the memory cards, which I did, and now the PC works fine except that there is no sound.

When I go to the control panel it says "Realtec High Definition Audio not plugged in," but the speakers that I have always used with this system (Altec Lansing Gateway 2000 speakers) are plugged in. There is a green 1/8 inch connector plugged into the green audio hole in the back of the tower.

I can tell the speakers are working because they hum and crackle when plugged in.

What do you think I should do? -Dan Stanley

A:No sound after re-seating memory cards

The "not plugged in" error isn't referring to the speakers, it's referring to a problem with the sound adapter into which the speakers are plugged.

Two things to try:

System Restore (choose a restore point that's dated before the problem started).


Re-install the sound/audio driver which you can download from your PC or laptop manufacturer's website.

A:One of my 4 memory cards is junk, replace with a different one?

Don't buy the single stick. It's never a good idea to mix memory. Always buy your RAM in matched pairs.

The new memory is a different speed, and so the board will default to the slowest stick's frequency, in this case, 800MHz instead of 1066MHz. The timings are different, so you'll also be running looser. Most importantly though is the voltage; they're different, so you don't want any part of this mess in your machine.

G.Skill usually has a lifetime warranty. Give em a call. Since the product is discontinued, you may very well end up with a new kit.

Hello all, has anyone ever experienced this with 2 nvidia cards in SLI.

Before I enable SLI I have 4096 total available graphics memory showing in WEI.

After I enable SLI it goes to 3968.

And my question is why might it do it.

It did it on my MSI board and now the Sabertooth.

A:Adding more memory to graphics cards

As far as I know all modern video cards don't allow expansion of ram. All I can think of it would involve a lot of soldering, forcing a bios update, all of which may not work, and if something goes wrong, it will kill your card.

I'm not 100% sure but i think it may be an option within the bios have you tried looking there.

These are the last three BSOD errors I received they are all different. Thanks for the help! BTW I am completely new to this so break it down barney style for me !

A:BSOD keeps happening, think it might be the memory cards

BugCheck 1A, {41284, fffff7063fbcc001, 21e54, fffff70001080000}

Probably caused by : ntkrnlmp.exe ( nt! ?? ::FNODOBFM::`string'+4ac3 )

Usual causes: Device driver, memory, kernel
Follow these steps -

Test for any corrupted drivers, by running Driver Verifier for least 24 hours, stop the test if a BSOD occurs before this time frame. Driver Verifier will place stress on the drivers within your system, which will cause corrupted drivers to crash and hopefully be pinpointed.Driver Verifier - Enable and Disable

Memory:RAM - Test with Memtest86+
Run Memtest86+ for least 7-8 passes, and preferably overnight as it can take a while to fully complete.

Test each RAM stick individually, if an error is found then move the same RAM stick into the next DIMM slot and test again, if errors are found for the same RAM stick in every available slot then you have a faulty RAM module. On the other hand, if no errors are found in the next slot or the other slots for the same RAM module, then you have a faulty DIMM slot.

Test each RAM stick and every motherboard DIMM slot available.

Scan for any missing, modified or corrupted protected Windows files with:SFC /SCANNOW Command - System File Checker

My question is I'm getting a new G. Card, do I get (examples, I haven't made a decision.)

1. A newer Radeon 6800 series with only 512mb of mem
or 2. A Older maybe 6500-6700 series with 1-2GB of ram?

I'm not sure what caused this but now whenever I put any of my SD cards in my computer via USB readers or the SD MMC MS XD reader they just show up as quot SD MMC quot as opposed to their name Attempting to open them gives a message reading quot You need to format the disk in drive H before you can use it Do you want to format it quot I formatted my MB card several times only for it to stop before completion saying quot Windows was unable to complete the format quot Yet when I put the same MB SD card in another computer lo and behold it's formatted All of my SD cards work in other computers yet not this one I have USB ports and I've tried hooking them all up through card readers or through cameras to work Memory no cards longer no avail I've contacted Gateway support and they've told me to reinstall some drivers which I did This accomplished nothing I'm on a Memory cards no longer work Gateway FX laptop and the Realtek USB Card Reader driver is apparently working according to its properties I have the Vista boot disc that came with the computer but I'm not sure how I'd go about using that to fix this if it actually could Any ideas as to why my computer's screwing up like this and how I could fix it Thanks

"“Just delete the photos you don’t want,” one friend suggests when you ask what to do when you’ve finished downloading a memory card to your computer.

“No, no. You want to format it in the camera to be safe,” chimes in another

And still a third friend offers, “What’s best is low level formatting, if you camera offers it.”

For a lot of people starting out in digital photography, all these bits of advice can seem both conflicting and confusing. What is low level and why is it better? What happens if I just delete?"

A:The Different Methods Of Cleaning Memory Cards

I just delete using the Camera, I rarely format. I suspect some will tell you you need to format over and over to make sure it gets a good scrub, but I never have any issues and I've probably shot 10000 pictures on the same card.

i know there are video cards that have 128 mb memory that are better then video cards with 256 mb memory.

so what difference does the memory make?

If u play a game like doom 3 (i know is not out yet), would difference a card make if it were the same spec card but one had 128 mb and other had 256 mb.

The reason i am asking this is because i have a geforce 2 64 mb and i looking to spend about 200 $ on a new video card by the time doom 3 comes out so i can play that game with a decent setting.

I don't know why it would have any effect on your graphics card. If you fried your memory, you might of damaged the memory slot on your motherboard as well. There are a couple of things you can do. If you think its your video card (it shouldn't be) try taking it out and putting another one in, try putting your RAM in another computer and make sure that its still good. How does your computer act when it starts up, does it beep, what does it sound like?

My son told me I have a LEXAR SD 1GB SD CARD. He said that you would need to use that in the Palm Tx in order to do different things.

Hi ,
Just wondering, is it my luck? that is the fourth flash memory SD card I try for first use and it gives me memory card error right after inserting it , I used to devices for reading: card reader in my HP officejet printer and Canonpowershot camera.
Cards are:
Patriot signature class 4 4gb
Kingston class 4 8gb
Kingstion micro sd with adapter
last one today Transcend class 10 8gb
I have a old kingston 2 Gb still working fine in the camera and in the HP printer.
I tried all the recovery software I could find to try to format it but the cards are not recognized.
I insert the cards unlocked for first use to format them at first but I can't reach this stage since I have memory card error right away.
I don't know what to do, I find it ridiculous to continue buying cards that won't work.
Any suggestions, ideas would be appreciated.

I have one of those add-in card multi-card readers that fits into a floppy drive bay and plugs directly to a terminal on the main board. I think it might be a Rosewill brand I got from Newegg.

If I go through the disconnect procedure to remove the card and want to reinsert any card later, I must reboot the computer before the card is recognized. Going into System and telling it to scan for hardware changes does no good, neither does View> Refresh in My Computer.

Any suggestions for a solution would be appreciated.

now I'M confused if I have always been doing this wrong.
I have always had multicard readers on my HP printers.

I use SD cards for the most part.

when I insert a card the "card present" light comes on--
when I'm done with the card--I just pull it out and put it back in to what
ever device I have it in.

there doesnt seem to be any errors or problems doing it this way.

I thought the only precaution you had to take was-- turn off the camera if
that's what you had the card in--before removing the card and make sure the
camera is turned off when you put the card back into the camera

but this is more protection for the camera then the card--

are you disabling the whole card reader when you use the disconnect hardware feature
to unplug a card

Hey Guys (and Gals, if any)...

I have upgraded my Vista Ultimate Aspire 9810 to Win 7 Ultimate(32). Everything is fine, so far, except for the 5-in-1 Memory card reader. It only reads up to 2GB. I cannot remember, when I had Vista Ultimate on it, if it read beyond 2GB.

Any ideas!?!?!!

Are there any updated drivers that support beyond 2GB on this Aspire? I hate to add a reader via USB for that only and wastes a port.

I have a Toshiba Satellite L655-1EM laptop running windows 7 home premium 64bit. OEM came pre-installed. I've had the laptop about 6 months.

It works great but I seem to get the BSOD quite a lot. I noticed it only seems to happens when I'm using either of my external hard drives or SD cards. Usually when I am transferring a batch of large files between drives.

Any help you can offer in solving this problem would be greatly appreciated.


A:BSOD when transferring files from memory cards or external hard drives

Hello, Mark080.

First, welcome to Windows Seven Forums !

Second. On this moment, I will try with reinstalling drivers for card reader.
That drivers is free and you can download from Toshiba web site.

Maybe, you installed wrong drivers, not for your lapotop. You need exactly driver for your model of laptop.

Go here and download new : Download Windows 7 drivers:

Then uinstall old drivers and restart computer :
1. Open Start Menu.
2. Right click on Computer.
3. Click on Properties.
4. Open Task Manager (You need administrator privileges to edit drivers)
5. Find your drivers and delete it.
6. Close all windows, save your work, and restart your computer.

Then :
1. Run installation.
2. Restart computer again.

I think that should work.

When I boot my computer Windows freezes at is no options! "Windows Bad cards? with memory starting..." freezes the quot Windows is starting quot screen but I can still move the mouse This just began today It does this same thing when I boot in the last good config and safe mode So basically Windows won t get "Windows is starting..." freezes with no options! Bad memory cards? past this screen no matter what mode I use Also I can t reinstall XP because I get a technical error blue screen that says I may not have adequate disk space a driver may need to be disabled or I may need to change the video adapter whenever I try to boot from the install CD The message also says quot pci sys quot I ve had this computer for years with no problems The only thing I can think of is that I was downloading a movie when I accidently turned off the computer at its power source earlier today So the computer was turned off abruptly at its power source and has NOT gotten past the quot Windows is starting quot screen since Could this have ruined both of my memory cards I m a beginner at the technical stuff on computers so help is definitely needed and appreciated A step by step is preferred Specs Dell Deminsion Intel Dual Mem cards gig XP Media edition sp nbsp

i have bought an xfx gt recently and i am having a problem I play crysis warhead and i get - fps average on the gamer mode my friend says that need 9800gt my help I XFX with this is not enough for my card he owns a gt he also told me that i have to connect a six pin plug type thingy to the card from the power supply but i could not find any place I need help with my XFX 9800gt in the card for a six pin plug i have a watt power supply which is not recommended by the company BY THE WAY unlike the card at the nvidia website and the xfx website it has one DVI output and one HDMI output without adapter Can someone tell me the origins of this card is the low fps due to the power supply or is my card not genuine I am listing my system specs below Help please Intel Core Quad Q GHZ WDC Green gb Sata HDD Kingston DDR ram XFX GT with stock power supply Watts nbsp

A:I need help with my XFX 9800gt

it is definitely because of the power supply. please change your PSU to a >500W with high Ampere on +12V rails. i just bought a 9500GT because it doesnt require the power thing.

the technician told me, PCIE supplies average of 75W of power. im not sure of this though. and the rest of the power are supplied from power supply. so, 230W would not cut it. buy a new one which supply "pure" power of the listed Wattage. anyway are u sure 230W or 230V?

230W is rare these days, especially running core2quad with 9800GT, its impossible.

Hello everybody here at the forums. This is my problem hopefully easily fixed

I have a N7AD-sli motherboard with 740i chipset
windows 7 64 bit ultimate
and x2 9800gt's 512mg, green edition

They dont have SLI connectors at the top, they run sli through the motherboard, it clearly says SLI on the box.

My PC only detects 1 of them, and i had no SLI messege when i put in the second card. The fan spins but it's not in the device manager.

What can i do?

A:need some help with my x2 9800gt's! Please!

Is it possible you have to enable it in BIOS? Is the driver installed and working in device manager? it could be listed and not have a yellow triangle on it.

Just bought one to far it is performed nicely.

PNY XLR8 9800GT 512mb, 112 stream processors, 600mhz core, 1800mhz shader, 512mb GDDR3.

Before with my 8600GT on 3dmark, i never got any smooth frame rates. Usually around 10-13fps. With this I get 26fps during flashy parts, and almost 60fps on good parts.

Heres the link:

A:What do you think of the 9800GT?

The 9800GT is basically a 55nm version of the 8800GT. So performance differences between the two will depend more on the core and memory frequencies than anything else. The HD 4830 released recently is a slightly more powerful variant, but slightly more expensive too. Not a bad card certainly, and it can handle almost all games out there pretty well.

Hey guys,
Its been a while since my last post. Ive been more than satisfied with the psu and gpu combination you guys suggested me a while ago, so far its been working great. Thats the reason im back here to ask you another question considering a right psu for a graphic card. My brother wants to upgrade his pc and he decided to buy PNYs 9800GT graphic card but hes also gonna need a new power supply. He was thinking about getting this one .
Is this one capable with the above mentioned gpu?
What are your suggestions?
*please note that he dosent want to spend more than 30$ on a new psu.

Thanks alot guys,you are the best!

A:PSU for PNY 9800GT

I would strongly recommend going with a better name brand PSU, epescialy for that price point. What I recommend is this PSU or this one they both have more amperage on the 12 volt rail and wont explode catastrophically. Though I can't say if that Sunbeam will either, but it does lack on the 12 volt rail.

many thanks guys

A:9800gt or 250gts help

Hi Monk
the gts 250 is a re branded 9800GTX, so if they are the same price you want the 250.
the PCIE slot is the yellow one the white one is a pci slot

Welcome to SevenForums fineliner
Did you uninstall your old driver before installing the new driver? Did you got to add remove programs? Have a look at this tutorial and see if it applies to you. Good luck to you.

Asus 9800GT 512MB
Asus 4850 512MB

I'm getting a new video card and these two seem around the same, can i have some feedback on which one you think would improve performance, and also note the pros and cons of getting one or the other

Thanks Alot,

A:9800GT vs 4850.

Err.. Radeon HD 4850 competes with Geforce 9800 GTX+ and OC 9800 GTX, not with 9800 GT. Only reason why anyone else than a faithful and ignorant nvidia fanboy wouldn't buy a 4850 is the stock cooler's crappiness (not actually crap, it just takes 2 mins of your time to put it at optimal speed).

My Sparkle 9800GT graphics card isn't that old (less than a year) and I only play one game which is now 5 years old and not that graphically demanding for such a card.
Recently, after playing the game (Battlefield2) for approx 45 minutes I get a strange lag like I'm in slow motion.
I have installed the latest driver,
Cleaned the PC out to rid dust etc.
Used RivaTuner to put my fans on 100% which brought the temps down from 68dgs to 54 in game.
The settings have been reduced from high to medium.
Internet connection is not fantastic but never has been.

I have done just about everything but it still kicks in after virtually the same amount of time.

Any ideas?
BTW, the game has been fine for months, its just started out of the blue.

hey guys should i get xfx 9800 gt in sli or should i go for 2 xfx gtx+ and get 3 later on or should i get 1 260 gtx black ed and upgrade it to sli later on in life? my money limit for now is around 400 trying to stay under 500

SLI is not worth it IMO. You can just buy a better card ad get better performance than the two lower cards SLI'd.

Recently my Dad went abroad, and brought me back an nVidia 9800GT, and I installed it but I keep getting the Error "Code 43". I've tried most things that other's have done, i.e rolling back the drivers, updating to the latest drivers, running CCleaner, etc. But the problem is just persisting and I have no idea what is wrong with the card, I mean I've only had the card a couple of hours so there shouldn't be anything wrong with it.

Somebody please help ='(

I was browsing the net this morning and all of a sudden my dual monitor screens went into "multi-coloured screens of death" mode that looked like crazy random colour static with coloured lightning strikes moving down my screen. Seemed like the graphics completely froze up and I couldnt move my mouse or use keys or anything, all I could do was restart. After the restart/shut down, a few minutes after rebooting the same thing would happen.

It appears that my video card (NVidia Gforce9800GT) is overheating, after starting up my computer the temperature rapidly rose from 60degrees celcius to 76 celcius (at which point the multicolored screen of death came back and computer/graphics froze up). I did nothing in this time other than stare at my desktop background and watch the temperature rise. Help plx.

I'm on Vista 32bit if that helps.

A:I can fry an egg on my GFORCE 9800GT

76 isn't extreme for a 9800GT but its high and it should be lower, especially if you are having issues and since thats at just idle.

It could be driver issue, as the driver is suppose to control the fan, and NVIDIA did have a glitchy driver that was causing cards to overheat. Download and install the latest driver:
Also install NVIDIA System Tools:
Once installed you can use it to set the fan speed manually. Right Click on your desktop and click on Nvidia Control Panel, then Performance, and then Device Settings to find the Fan Control.
