dimm slot 1 and 2 error with ddr400

Q: dimm slot 1 and 2 error with ddr400

i have just built myself a pc, using an asus k8v se deluxe motherboard, amd 64 2800+ cpu, asus 9520 td graphics card, crucial ddr400 512mb ram, maxtor 160gb sata hdd's and optical drives.
put the pc together and went to install windows, only to find it would blue screen and reset, i search the net and it said this could be due to bad ram, so i ram a mem test and it came back ok, tried putting the dimm from slot 1 to slot 2 but the same thing happened, put it in slot 3 and it worked!
tried a friends pc2100 ram and that worked in all three slots.
put the pc2100 ram in slot 1 and the ddr400 ram in slot 2 and that worked (where as before with the ddr400 on its own in slot 1 or 2 it would fail)

any ideas as to whats wrong?

many thanks

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

i have had trouble with my computer after cleaning it (can of compressed air) it would boot to log in screen then go black on the monitor or it would blue screen and restart.

after figuring out it was a RAM problem i tried another stick of RAM but same problem so i guess its the actual slot it goes into, i only have 2 on my motherboard lucky one of them is working still.

has anyone had this problem or know of a way to fix it, i am wondering if some of the canned air/gas became a liquid from spraying to close and got in it.

any help would be appreciated thanks.

A:RAM slot/DIMM slot? blue screening me!


ok so i have been looking into my problem more, when booting i press tab to show the POST?? or somthing and it says that 1 of the RAMs wouldnt/couldnt R/W (read write?? i dont know)

then i get the screen saying that windows has had hardware changes and asking to how i want to start windows (normal, safe mode, etc) i have tried all but it just restarts.

now its only with 1 of the 2 dimm slots this happens and i have tried differend RAM in there but only the 1 slot works

any help would be appreciated

I have a motherboard that supports DDR266 RAM. Will a DDR400 RAM work on this motherboard. If not will it damage the motherboard.

A:Using DDR400 RAM on DDR266 slot

It depends on your Mother Board.
Some Boards will be Backwards Compatable which means the DDR400 will Run at DDR266

But frankly it is not a Good Idea at all.

What is the MB ????

Can I put a DDR 333 (PC 2700) memory chip in a mobo slot geared for DDR 400 (PC 3200) without the chip frying? The "case latency" on both chips appears to be the same.

A:Want to use DDR333 in slot geared for DDR400

yes - the board will always default back to the slower speed. If the option is available as part of the BIOS, change that as well (but remember to put it back should you ever upgrade the RAM!)

As the title suggest my motherboard seems to have an issue reading memory I have x gb sticks and the computer will not boot unless a specific stick is in the A dimm slot The computer refuses to boot if that same stick is in any other slot and when placed in the A slot a beep message indicating I have no memory installed occurs The other stick seems to not work in any slot including A and the computer will only boot with two sticks if they're in A A but still only reads stick This problem arose after I installed a Hyper cooler I have read of similar issues due to the instillation being to tight and remedying it by loosing however I loosened it and the problem still persist I fear I might be too late and the damage has been done I do issue. slot RAM/Dimm need all gb to be accessible so any help or advice is welcome As for the memory itself the stick that can boot with the computer reads no error yet it still only works in that slot The other stick I received after an rma of a previous one I can assume the stick works fine but I can't test it I have also updated my bios to the most current version

Well I recently decided to upgrade from 1gig of RAM to 2Gigs on my A7N8X-E Deluxe 2800+ ... It had 2 512Ram sticks in the first 2 slots (Which I assume means it never was running dual channel mode right?) Well I went and got a 1gig stick that matches exactly to every spec the 512 sticks have, except its one gig instead of 512. I put the 1gig stick in the #1 slot, 512 sticks in #2 and #3, but it shows i have 1536 RAM, the 3rd Dimm slot is not picking up anything at all, like its empty, except it isnt, and I know all 3 sticks of ram work just fine

Is there something Im missing thats causing the 3rd Dimm slot to not recongnize anything there? Because the PC does know it has a 3rd slot

A:PC Not Recognizing 3rd DIMM Slot?

Put the two 512MB memory modules in slots 1 & 2 leaving the 3rd slot to house the 1GB memory module. If that doesn't work, try booting the system with each memory module by itself to see if you haven't "burnt" one of the modules during the installation.

My 2nd DIMM slot is not recognising my DDR2 RAM.

I have 2 slots with 256mb in each. I safely took the 2nd one out to check the type because i am upgrading to 2gb. I put it back in again and now when I press F2 on startup the 2nd DIMM slot is classed as "Empty"

Hello - I have a bit a a problem, not so big now, but will be in the future...

A quick overview of my system specs:

MSI K8N Neo-Force 4
AMD Athlon 64 3500+

Heres the problem: DIMM slots 1 and 3 run fine, but 2 and 4 wont accept RAM... it gives me long beeps, so something is wrong with the slots... The RAM is compatible with each other, I checked that, and it is compatible with my system.

Do these slots take a different kind of RAM or is something wrong with the motherboard?

A couple of weeks ago, I attempted to install a new DIMM into my computer. During this attempt, the clip on one of the sides broke off. The slot still works but since it ends up being vertical when I put my computer back together, the DIMM keeps working its way loose. I suddenly drop 512MB when I turn my computer back on.

Is there any way, short of replacing the computer or motherboard, to firmly hold the DIMM in place?

I have noticed a steady progression of either bad Dimm or Dimm slots. In the last 3-4 years as computers come to our shop I notice that people are complaining about lock-up problems and you go inside the machine and thump the ram chip and the machine will either reboot or give a hard lock-up. So my question is it bad ram contacts, bad slots or just cheap metals ? I have machines that are 8-10 years old and no ram problems at all that are still solid as a rock.

A:Question about PCI-e slot below dual slot video card

My opinion ...

Yes, setting up like that will have an impact. The air flow to your GPU will be restricted so it will more than likely run hotter than it did. It may still stay withing recommended specs, but it will run hotter.

The motherboard has onboard sound (Realtek® ALC892 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC ), any particular reason why you don't use that? Onboard sound is perfectly good for gaming and the like now, its not like older machines where you needed a dedicated card for decent quality. In my opinion, you only need a dedicated card if you are doing a lot of detailed audio work (mixing, remastering and other specific audio work). This would totally remove the issue.

The type of memory doesn't matter, its the type of interface the computer supports among a few other things to watch for.

You likely have a PCI-Express slot, as long as it a x16 slot it doesn't really matter if its a version 1.1 or 2.0 slot.

Is this for your Dell or another computer? Whats you budget and what needs do you have for the video card?

Hi NukesGoBoom,

I have seen a similar problem, but it was all USB ports that weren't working.

First, check the BIOS to make sure all USB ports are enabled, which they probably are.

Are all drivers installed and up to date? Do any yellow question marks or exclamation points show up in Device Manager?

If The motherboard Spec says "Dual-Channel un-buffered DDR400 and higher memory support" does this mean i can run DDR500 RAM?

thanks in advance

A:Ddr400 + Ddr500

AFAIK, no boards officially support ddr500 speeds. That said, ddr 500 will work in a motherboard that supports ddr400, but at ddr400 speed(it downclocks). Also, if you overclock, you can make the memory run at it's full clock speed, if you clock it high enough.

An example of this would be on an amd64 cpu, if I overclocked the htt speed to 250mhz, the memory would be at ddr500 speed(if I didn't use a memory divider).

If you don't understand that last part(I know it may sound like greek, if you aren't into that), don't worry, you don't need to unless you want to overclock your cpu.

Hope this helps though.

Hey guys,

I'm running an ABIT AG8, which supports DDR400 and dual channel. I've got two 512Mb DDR400 sticks, and dual channel mode is enabled. The FSB's running at 200MHz (technically, 204), and the memory frequency is set to 1:1/2x200. All well and good, it would seem, so I ought to have an effective mem freq of 400, right?

Well, SiSoft Sandra's reporting that I have a Max Memory Speed of 2x166, and an actual speed of 2x133 = 266. Anyone have any idea why?

Thanks in advance!

Relevancy 45.58%

Well, here we go again: I'm getting helped out.

At least, I hope I am...

Anyway, here's the deal: My RAM is Kingston DDR400. I would tell you the exact model num. but I don't really feel like removing the sticks.

Mobo: Biostar K8M800-M7A
CPU: AMD Athlon64 3200 (754)
RAM: 2x Kingston DDR400 512M

I think that's all you'll need.

Anyway, When I look in WarpSpeeder (A program bundled with the mobo, used for overclocking) It shows RAM speed as 166 MHz. Now, I don't know exactly how to read this.

I once read somewhere that with DDR, you double what it's showing you, thusly: 166 translates to 333 MHz. Now, my RAM is supposed to be running at 400, and I have confirmed that the mobo supports that. So, what do I do? Or am I just looking too much into it and being paranoid?

A:DDR400, is it really running at 400?

Look in your mobo-manual to find the BIOS-settings to change the FSB from 166 to 200, so it runs at 400MHz.
Current FSB Frequency=200/Current DRAM Frequency=200/DRAM Clock=400, stuff like that.
A half decent mobo should tell you at startup that it runs in DDR400 mode/128bit (mine does, Abit AV8 3rd Eye).

If it is not what will be better,

1. Two 512Mb DDR400 or
2. One 1Gb DDR400
Pls be Kind enough to answere

A:DDR333 and DDR400 Together

Usually, yes. The total memory will then run at the speed of the slower modules. The machine I'm using right now has DDR333 and DDR400 (Intel 915GAG), and it runs just fine. (mixed brands too, but all are generic types)

One caution make sure these are "generic" modules. (standard spec, run of the mill DIMMs). the trouble usually starts when you mix high performance and generic types. The timing and voltages can be different, which is much more critical than the speed.

Also I want to upgrade my hard disk. How much capacity(GB) hard disk can my system support??

I bought 2 1gb ddr 400 pc3200 and my computer will power on but not boot and no video when installed but will work in another one but only says it has 2 512mb in bios. The one that won't boot which boots fine with 512mb pc2100 is a custom built with intel p4 478 board model D865GBF with 4 slots which will hold 4 1gb ddr pc2100, pc2700 and pc3200 and the other is an HP Pavilion 734n Athlon XP 2.0 Ghz which works fine but instead of having 2gb memory it says 1gb total under my computer properties and 2 512mb in bios. I bought the memory on ebay and says backwards compatible with pc2100 and pc2700. I have updated the bios in the hp with no success. Both computers have windows xp. The intel board has p4 2.66ghz.

Athlon 64 3400+
FSB running at 200mhz
1.5 gigs Kingston Hyper-X DDR400 PC3200 Dual Channel RAM

Ok, so previously I had been running my pc with 1 gig (2x512mb) of DDR400 RAM, which was running at the expected 400mhz. I randomly decided to buy another 512mb stick of the exact same RAM, and I put it in, totaling to 3 sticks of 512mb DDR400 Kingston blah blah blah. With this added chip, the clock speed of my RAM dropped to 333mhz. Is this just an inevitable trade-off of running three sticks as opposed to two? Furthermore, is the decrease in speed justified by the 512mb memory increase? Is there a way I can make it run at 400mhz with three sticks? Thank you ahead of time.

Thanks for the quick response Rick.... but this board has no Memory
settings at all, except for voltage. I have spent about 2 hours
going over the board (for jumpers) and the Manual and BIOS for
other settings all I have found are:
mutliplier for the CPU
FSB for the CPU
Clck for AGP
and voltages for all of the above as well as the DDR voltage, but
no SPD / manual override of manual DDR settings. I am bummed

My Dell 4600 has 2x128 PC3200/DDR400 RAM. I want to add 2x256 for a total of 768MB. The Dell site recommends RAM that is 184-pin, 32x64, non-parity, unbuffered. When I check sites like Kingston, the RAM they specify for the 4600 is quite a bit more expensive than Kingston's value RAM.

Is there really a difference?

Can I use value RAM or do I need to use the more expensive RAM?

Would the system suffer with value RAM? seems to have some good RAM options. Other recommendations?

Thanks in advance for your advice.

Hi there

I'm upgrading the RAM in someone's PC from 512mb (2x256mb sticks) to 1gb (1x1gb stick). the two 256mb's are PC2700 aka DDR333. Can I safely purchase 1gb of PC3200 aka DDR400 and expect it to either:

1. Slow down the DDR400 to DDR333.
2. Just work at DDR400.

I haven't got the model number to hand but will it work?

What is the Make and Model of your Motherboard?

what is the difference btwn DDR333 and DDR400?

A:Difference btwn DDR333 and DDR400 Ram

DDR 400mhz is essentially faster than 333mhz. It is also known as PC3200 (400mhz) and PC2700(333mhz). It means that there is a bandwidth of 3.2GB/s and 2.7GB/s. The price difference can be very little and you should definately pick up the 400mhz one. Even if your motherboard doesn't support 400mhz, it will still accept it at the slower speed. I believe 400mhz is the highest standard until ddrII makes a big headway and they come out with higher bandwidth of 500+mhz.

A:can I add a AGP slot or PCI slot to a comp that doesnt have one?

You can't add a slot to a motherboard.

How old is this computer that it doesn't have a PCI slot? Those have been around for quite a while. Are you sure it doesn't have one? Even AGP is not new technology.

EDIT: After seeing your other thread, are you asking if you can purchase an AGP or PCI video card? That's a totally different question, and the answer would be yes depending on which slot your motherboard has. How much it costs depends on what you plan to use the computer for. A simple one is cheap, and high-end gaming cards can get expensive.

but also i've head that if you use 2 PC3200 sticks you can easily get the max speed of DDR400.

but the question im trying to salve here is, can i safely run my ram at its max speed without ruining my system by setting the speed i the bios with 4 modules of ram?

I just upgraded my system to the ECS K8M800-M2 motherboard because i wanted to use my DDR400 memory (that i have 2GB of). I purchased the board and an AMD 3100+ processor from Fry's. I had (what I thought was) a corrupted copy of Win XP, so i formatted the 250GB Seagate drive (Drive C) and formatted the other partition (Drive F) as NTFS also. The computer hangs on "Verifying DMI pool data" and then takes between 5-10 minutes to find XP and boot. The white line with black hash marks moves VERY slowly and then it finally boots up to XP. I had installed the drivers for the motherboard on a previous install, but reformatting the C drive should've removed them. I have removed ALL the hardware except the harddrive and still the problem. Does anybody have any ideas???

I can't play more than 2 minutes in a game and my computer gets frozen or crashed.
After this, it starts giving me BSOD errors even in Windows XP (not in a game).
Like I said, my system is:

Windows XP SP2
A8V / AMD64 3000+ / 2x512 Kingston DDR400 / nVidia AGP FX 5500

Here are the minidumps... all them...

I hope someone can analyze this minidumps and tell me what I have to do.
I'm testing memories, but I think that aren't them.
It isn't really getting hot. About 37 Celsius CPU, 30 Celsius Motherboard and 39 Celsius VGA.

What should I do?
I've already tried update some drivers, but it didn't work too.

Help me, please!!!

Hi HacKiller,

I've investigated your minidumps and the culprit is faulty ram.

1. Reseat the memory stick to another memory slot
2. Downclock the ram
3. Clean the dust inside the computer case
4. Make sure that the ram is compatible to the motherboard

If it still crashes, diagnostic which memory stick is faulty
1. Take out one memory stick. If windows does not crash, the removed memory stick is faulty.
2. If you have only one memory stick, replace the ram

After going through the manual for the Asus P4C800-E Deluxe I got to bring my system back up to speed. I noticed something that puzzled me to the point that I had to ask.

How come with some Brand/Model/Size of DDR DIMM's the maximum number that can be used, is less than the number of sockets that are available. No matter what the size of the chip is (256MB or 512MB). Even though they state in the specifications for this mobo that it is capable of supporting up to 4GB. (Not that I will ever need that much memory)

Hi my PC requires DIMM memory but when I look at best buy I only see DDR DIMM memory...are those two the same? If not, how are they different and what can I do to acquire the proper memory type.

A:Ddr Dimm?

DIMM is Dual Inline Memory Module, DDR is Double Data Rate. DIMM's come in many types including SDRAM, DDR, and DDR2.

If you post your motherboard model that would be useful to determine what type and speed you need.

You should download Everest and see what it tells you about your memory:
Look under Motherboard -> SPD.

I have an old HP Pavillion XL761. The manual states "Maximum ram: 512 MB (2 x 256 MB DIMM) "

what will happen if i put a 512MB in one DIMM and have the second DIMM empty? Anyone know if it can damage the pc in any way? I am running redhat fedora core 4. thanks

A:max ram per dimm?

IF the specs state max is 256mb per slot then that is the Max Mem size that the MB will support on each slot

Generally it wont Boot, But I would not risk damaging the Hardware by trying this.

Q: Dimm?

Hello all,

I've found out that one of my RAM cards has fried, and want to buy a new one. However, I have no idea what DIMM is; does it matter if the DIMM for each card is different? How do you know what your DIMM is? By counting the contacts?

Also what is 'ECC' and 'non-ECC' ?

And just to make sure, the RAM has to be the same type right? Eg DDR SDRAM.

Sorry for the numerous questions, and thanks in advance.

My other PC has both SIMM and DIMM slots..
I recently switched to DIMM..

The mother board has jumpers for 3.3 or 5 volts (for the RAM)..
It has been set to 3.3 all the time I've had it, but now I want to know if that is right.
Reading the manual, it looks like that was wrong... It shows SIMM as 5 volts...
The DIMM was taken from another PC, So I haven't a clue how to find out if it's 3.3 or 5 Volts..

Did a few googles but turned up nothing.

A:Can I use 3 DIMMS in a 4 DIMM MB

Sure, you can use three 4 GB sticks to give you 12 total.

I think you may lose dual channel capability, but that's not a major difference. 12 GB in single channel is certainly better than 8 in dual channel IF you actually use the 9th, 10th, 11th, and 12th GB of RAM.

Have you monitored how often you actually use more than 8 GB?

I suspect the RAM slot can be repaired, but that the cost would be prohibitive unless you know someone who would do it for you on the cheap as a personal favor. Most likely you'd be forced to buy a new motherboard.

I have an Asus P4S800D-E. According to the manual it will support 64mb to 1gb Dimms in any of its four Dimm sockets. There are 2 blue sockets and 2 black ones. The manual recommends using the two blue ones first, so at the moment I have one 512 card in each blue socket. XP recognizes these no problem. However, this morning I added a 1Gb Dimm to one of the black sockets and XP doesn’t recognize it. I checked it from Everest too and it doesnt see any more memory.

All memory is the same brand and type (Samsung) and is in the Asus compatibility list for my motherboard.

Any suggestions?

Adding a half gig of RAM to my computer. I've got two 512 sticks already installed in sync (I don't know the technical terms), and I've got two 256 sticks I want to put in the remaining dimm slots. I just wanted to check before I go for it: will I be able to do this, add sticks of a different size and will there be any cons i.e. potential performance hit? And do I need to do anything special, or just install the sticks, turn it on and go?

Thanks in advance

A:DDR/Dimm question

If your motherboard and RAM are dual channel than the 521 + 256 should be on one side and the same order on the other two slots. If no dual channel than it dosn't matter where the sticks go. All you have to do is pop the sticks in , no other config is needed.

A:only half ram, it's not the dimm

It's possible you got a defective mobo from the shop. If it doesn't see any DIMM in the second slot, but the DIMM works in the other machine, take it back for a replacement. I'm surprised they didn't test it properly.

i understand that this RAM is a little old, and i really do not have ANY experience with this type of RAM my first question is: so they even still sell it?
and secondly
Install at least one DIMM module on the slots. Each DIMM slot supports up to a maximum size of 1Gb. Users can install either single- or double-sided modules to meet their own needs . Please note that Channel A DIMMs (DIMM1 & DIMM2) can respectively work alone but channel B DIMMs (DIMM3 & DIMM4) Must work in pair with Channel A DIMMs Click to expand...

i basically understand it... but still...what?
also is this RAM expensive? i know most memory is cheap but... could replacing them in pairs get expensive?

I recently got a Gateway PC (P III, IGhz) that came with 128 MB RAM. With Prices so reasonable, I snatched up a stick of 256 MB and one of 128. There are three DIMM slots on the MB.

Someone advised that I should install the 256 stick in the "first" slot because that is the fastest slot, then add the two 128s after it. All the RAM is PC 133.

OK...which is the "first" slot, and does it really matter? The thing recongizes 512 MB RAM...but I have it instralled ( L to R as I look at the board): 128/256/128. Shold I change that, and if so to what order?

A:DIMM/RAM, Where To install???

If the system boots, and there are no problems with your operating system running, the ram that you placed in the slots are ok.
Should you have any problems with your operating system, ie: Windows 98SE or ME, then you might want to check your CMOS, and see what the ram is clocked at, and if you can change any settings. If the settings are on turbo, change them to normal. This all depends on what motherboard you have, and what version of CMOS you have.
If your computer came with the book for your motherboard, all of your questions should be answered there.
Otherwise, check their web site for technical information.

I have a K6-III 400mhz, FIC 503va+ mothervboard 32mb Jaton video, Creative awe 64 Sound. I tried to add a 256 mb Dimm to my system and it does recognize it. No video when I boot, and fails post with beeps. The dimm slots are known good and the chipls are also. Fic says that it is compatible with the motherboard. Someone told me that it wont work because it is a double stacker dimm. I am not familiar with this term and was wondering if anyone else was. I have verified jumper settings, It is pc 100 mhz dimm. Help and Thanks!


A:256 MB Dimm incompatable?

Double stacker just refers to having chips on both sides of the stick instead of just on one side (less MB per chip, but more of them) - I've heard for years that "single stackers" were better but have never been able to tell a difference based on performance or dependability.

As for your problem, How do you know the DIMM is good? Test it in another machine? I think FIC moboards suck, but there have been the occasional good ones produced. FIC says the DIMM is compatible you say, did they take all the chip specs from you to come to that determination or did they just say 256MB should work?
