RAM 2x 2GB on motherboard

Q: RAM 2x 2GB on motherboard

Hello all

I have a HP Pro 3405 Microtower PC and I recently reinstalled Win 7 Ultimate.
Now I did a very stupid thing, I managed to install a DDR 2 1GB RAM on a DDR3 DIMM slot, don't ask me how but I did. There was also a DDR3 2GB RAM already there.

I quickly took out the DDR 2 and restarted the system, since then I've been getting 5 beep at startup which means "pre-video memory failure". I reseated the RAM, nothing changed. I looked on google on how to fix it but nothing worked.

I ordered another 2GB RAM from Offtek, same specs as the original RAM stick.
When I tried to install it today, it still was giving me the 5 beep code.
I've tried reseating it, resetting the BIOS, taking out the PSU... nothing >.<

Have I fried my motherboard? Or is there a solution I haven't tried yet?

Thanks in advance

Preferred Solution: RAM 2x 2GB on motherboard

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.)

A: RAM 2x 2GB on motherboard

If you have tried all that you speak of, sounds like you really messed up your motherboard. I don't think there's much you can do. Maybe if you know what form factor the motherboard is, you can replace it with one like it. If you don't know more then how to replace the RAM in a computer, I would not recommend going strait to replacing a motherboard.

Hi (a post after a long time)
I've a F90M motherboard (with intel 915G chipset - i gues chipset doesn't have to do anything with front panel connections, but ... ). It came out of Acer 3700GX PC (i think its a bit old ).
Ok, now i'm trying to put it in a standard larger ATX casing. I've fitted it in and everything works fine except the front panel connections. I cannot identify the front panel connections and could only manage to identify the power switch pins on the motherboard.

I've searched over internet and couldn't find a manual of the motherboard (found manual for the PC on but it doesn't tell how to connect front panel)

so can you guys please suggest me the connections for front panel LEDs, Audio and USB.

and i really believe that you TSG guys are up to it

Thanks in advance

I've been looking for the front panel pin layout on the Dell Dual Xeon Motherboard with Dell P/N: 0WN7Y6 (it is a # zero, W, N, #7, Y, #6). 
The front panel connector is 27-pin...28 spots with one pin left blank. The pin layout isn't included in the manual and I'm trying to boot two of these motherboards without the 27-pin connector. I just need to know which pins need to be jumpered in order to test for boot to BIOS.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I could use some creative customer service here. My M3800 shipped with the known power-on motherboard defect. It was replaced at no charge, which was very nice. However, the replacement (2nd motherboard!) is now having the same intermittent dead / no power problem.
To get the computer running, I have to remove the case (12 screws) and un-plug the internal battery to 're-set' the electrical fault. After I put it back together, the computer starts normally. This is not very convenient, especially when meeting with new clients.
The problem is that I am being told I am outside the 3-month repair warranty. I think this stinks! It's a known issue and I would like someone at Dell to step up make my expensive computer work normally all of he time.
Yes, I have run every diagnostic known to man and the internet.

Okay, so as the topic title implies, for the life of me, I cannot figure out which motherboard model I'm supposed to get for this Dell Inspiron 1300 here. Only info I have is that it has the Centrino sticker on the palm rest of the case, and I also have the service tag, but that doesn't seem to give me much information from what I've found.

I've taken the motherboard out of the thing and looked it over, but no luck, as I don't see the model number on it.

Will someone please tell me how I'm supposed to figure out the motherboard model number so I can get a new one?

hey guys, does anyone if there are any other drivers for this board? i'm looking at this page after selecting 'driver' and 'win7 64 bit'. i only see 'audio', 'chipset' 'LAN' and 'RAID'. on the other boards i've seen, the driver software was much more comprehensive and contained several different pieces of software.

what's the main driver i need to install after installing win7 for the motherboard? just wondering if i'm missing something and need to install something else for the 'main features'? or are there main features found in the BIOS before win7 boots up? how does win7 recognise the board btw? does the board have drivers built in already? how can winxp recognise mboards that have been made very recently?

thanks guys

A:Gigabyte motherboard: P55M-UD4 some questions on motherboard software

Those are all the drivers you need, and really all any motherboard needs to work. You also have some Utilities under the drop down menu of "Download Type" but these are optional tweaking and similar utilities not required for proper operation of the system. Any version of Windows will have limited driver support, enough to install and run until the correct drivers are installed, or for a SATA or RAID controller under Windows XP drivers are loaded via the F6 prompt during the initial stages of the XP install to allow it to detect the hard drive. There are no drivers built into the hardware itself.

I currently have a Dell 15r 5520 with no modifications. I have found a 15R 7520 motherboard on eBay to replace it but it says with no video.

I need to know if the HDMI motherboard in a 60" Samsung Plasma TV can be used in a Sony Bravia 52" TV. The motherboard in my Sony died and I have access to one in a Samsung Plasma that's screen cracked.

A:Is a 60" Samsung Plasma HDMI motherboard compatible with a 52" Sony Bravia HDMI motherboard.

No, it would not be, in the past I had to repair a tv for a friend that had his board shorted that was an LCD Sony Bravia 52 Inch and its board was very specific as with all Sony Products. The Boards on the TV's are the hearts and the companies that built them don't allow for parts to be interchanged easily. Your best bet is ebay and finding the part number to find a board, that's how I got the one I used to fix it.

Problem is.....My old motherboard crashed and I cannot implement sysprep on the old system, how would I get along doing this if the hdd is not botting up on my new motherboard?

For what it is worth, Windows 7 seems to be pretty tolerant of new motherboards. Quite a few people have reported here that they swapped boards, reconnected the old hard drive, and booted OK. Without using Sysprep.

NOW heres the dilemma:
I can't find the motherboard again so I'm going to replace it with another ones (make/model not yet decided) But how do I go about installing the drivers for the new one? I've searched Google yet the only thing I could find is being able to boot up the computer to un=install the old ones? Is there anyway to do this without booting it up prior to installing the new MOBO? Many thanks, Mark ^^

obviously i wouldnt want to send it back so what do ya think either upgrade my motherboard and smash the extra 4 gb in there or keep to my original one i dont have money to blow atall im really struggling if its something that will really make a difference ill go with it if not then ill just keep to my original and when i come to buy a graphics card i will get a 2gb graphics card to help with gaming all i really do is gaming i dont really do anything else

thankyou for your time

A:Motherboard 4gb Max or change motherboard for 8gb ?

I'd go with 4 gigs until you had a major reason to believe it wasn't enough. If that ever happens, consider your next move. Most people do just fine with 4 gigs.

I considered 8 gigs on my 4 slot board but decided against it and don't regret it.

Hi, Possibly someone could....but, some details might help.
It could be a power problem- got a good, high enough output power supply, and is the fan in it working, clean, etc?
Any beeps other than the one that is normal heard?
Got a good battery on the board?
1. Name brand computer or clone?
2. Type of install- fresh format of old hard drive?
3. How are you running setup- directly from an OS CD or by copying files to the hard drive first?
4. You probably have the manual for that new board- have you followed the reccommended setup procedures?
5. Followed the guidelines for installing CPU and fans?
RAM of the type it should have?
RAM seated right? Do it again, just to be sure.
6. What is the hard drive arrangement- Primary Master on Primary IDE connector of the motherboard? CD drive as Master on 2ndary IDE connector or is hard drive slaved to the CD drive (it should not be, for good performamance).
7. There are some BIOSes that are more or less self-detecting and load the CPU settings for you, are these showing what you have for speed of CPU? Amount of RAM too?
You can use the Setup Defaults setting to see what happens, rather than the Optimal or Best Performance settings...which can be tough on things until the right drivers for everything are loaded after you get Windows installed. But, usually this turns on the bootup virus scan that may be included with the motherboard-- should turn that to Disabled.
Disconnect any peripherals you can, no printers or other devices like that, only need items RAM, CPU, Hard drive, CD, floppy if you have that. if you have added a sound or video card, and the motherboard has either of these onboard, you may have a conflict. You should disable onboard sound if you have a sound card, there are settings in BIOS usually to do that.
Any heat problems seen- do you have a temp monitor to check? All the fans turning? Any other messages you see?
8. Any other partitions on that hard drive at all?

A:Do I need a new motherboard?

Whenever your machine shuts down improperly, there is file system damage. That should always be repaired after a shutdown of that type. It is even possible that drivers were corrupted.

Check all your connections and reseat as many components as you can. Check Device Manager for any obvious problems. Try updating your graphics drivers.

Did you get any errors with those crashes? Can you post any memory dumps found in C:\Windows\minidump so we can check for what caused the crash?

My emachine T2825 motherboard went belly up. I have never replaced a motherboard so I thought since I'm replacing it I might as well try and to upgrade it to a faster one. Can I do this? How will I know what model board will work in my PC? Also will these boards come with a processor on them and if not how will I know what processor will work on the board I get? and should I get another power supply with more wattage? I have a 250 watt PS now. Where can I get these items? Sorry for all the questions but thanks for any advice.


A:What motherboard should I get?

Almost all motherboards have a socket for a processor so the processor can be upgraded, and do not come with the processor. The manufacturer will say what socket type it supports and also usually will have a processor compatibility list on their website. 250W isn't a lot, but will power a basic system. If you'll be significantly upgrading the computer a higher power supply would be better. A good place to buy in the US is

My motherboard Asus a7m266 is getting very hot and would like some suggestions as to cooling it. My CPU doesn't get hot, just my motherboard. I have two case fans, one positioned in the lower front and one positioned in the upper back...Airflow is going in from the front and out to the back - but it is just not cool enough for my motherboard. Any suggestions??

A:Hot Motherboard

Depends on what type of case you have now. Small cases tend to run hotter, if you have a midtower or bigger that shouldn't be an issue.
You can look around at this site for cooling alternatives.
Check out their cases and the way the side fans are installed.
I would think adding two fans to the side of your case and then a twin turbo bay fan pulling air out would take care of the problem.

Install the two new fans with grills and dust covers blowing in on the motherboard to keep the dirty out.

Or you could buy a case already modded out, there are some nice ones out there but I don't have any links at the moment.

hi, i've recently purchased a new motherboard today. it is a socket a motherboard that supports up to 1.4ghz and faster. amd athlon/amd athlon xp/ amd duron.

i thought my cpu was 1.2 ghz, but it's actually 950 mhz duron.

the computer seems to run, but will that be a problem in the long run.

and my graphics card does not work, but when i put it in the motherboard graphics, it works... any ideas?

A:new motherboard

The CPU more than likely needs to be set up in the BIOS. It is more than likly your front side bus and multiplier that need to be set to get the processor to be recognized as a 1.2 GHz. You also need to go into the BIOS and disable the onboard video in order to use the add on video card.

My PSU died the other day. I had it unplugged for a while, plugged it back in and I heard a clicking sound and the fans blew some air out. this lasted for a couple of seconds. I realized something was not right hit the power switch on the PSU and it stopped. Turn PSU power on, Push on button and.........Nothing. Took Computer in and the PSU tested Dead. Dropped $90 on a new 600w PSU (CoolerMaster) got it home hooked it up pushed the button.............The CPU fan and Case fan twitched a little and that was it. If I wait a while and try again...... twitch. Is the Motherboard fried as well? is there a way I can tell?

A:is it the Motherboard?

When a pw supply fails, it can take out other hardware as well. You need to swap in known working parts ie cpu, ram, video, etc to test each one.

FWIW I had a system brought to me for a no boot condition. When I attempted to pw ON the system, the pw supply exploded and shot sparks and smoke out the back. It took out everything except the mouse and keyboard. Everything else was fried ie board, ram, hd, video, etc, etc.

Also during games after about 20 mins in they usually freeze up for about 10 seconds and then continue on like nothing happened and continue doing that bout every 5 mins. Sometimes the games even start to artifact. I have even tried 2 different video cards. I have tried upgrading my power supply but there is no difference. I found that if i put the /onecpu command at startup that is tends to crash less but it still crashes.

Dear All,
My pc's problem.

The screen shows "No signal" and the red light, normally flashing does not flash now. Only the green light there.

I tested my harddisc and cables, they are all fine. So I think should be the problem with motherboard, is that right?

So, I plan to change the motherboard. I'm using AMD K7 Duron 700Mhz. Now with T.bird type (PC chips) motherboard.

The main problem is: Is most motherboard (with socket A) recently in market suitable for my old AMD 700Mhz CPU ?

For example, ASUS A7N266VM Mainboard (states: Design for AMD Athlon XP / Athlon / Duron Processor) suitable for me?

Hope to get advises.


A:motherboard for AMD K7 CPU?

do your drives spin up and fans turn on when power is applied? If you are getting power, but there is no video signal, the problem could be with the vid card, motherboard or the powersupply. It might even be with the monitor or cable itself. At this point a little more info is required to properly troubleshoot this problem.

Have you tried another monitor?
You say you tested the drives and such, please elaborate on that.
Have you tried booting barebones to see if you get video?

Ok, I've got a question on RAM and CPU.

I'm buying a A7N8X Deluxe and it says it can go 200/266/333 FSB. Does that mean I can buy a processor faster than 333? And for RAM, how do I get the most out of it like dual channel mode or something? And I've got to have my RAM at 333 right?

A:Ram, Cpu, Motherboard

I wouldn't count on the current A7N8X line to support the new 200Mhz FSB Barton (400 Mhz DDR). Those speeds (200/266/333) are actually DDR speed or 2X the FSB. You'll have to wait for the A7N8X-X? for true 200 Mhx Barton support. You can take 266 or 333 FSB CPUs up to around 200 Mhz with the older rev 1.0X motherboards and I hear they will run over 200 Mhz with the rev 2.0 boards. The lower multipliers are enabled with Thoroughbred and Barton CPU's so you can mix FSB and Multiplier for stable operation. I can run up to 196 FSB stable except for Alien vs. Predator II which I have to drop to 190 to play. (It hangs while loading that game above 190 FSB)

You'll need two sticks of RAM in slots 1 & 3 or slots 2 & 3 to get dual channel. I'd recommend PC3200 (DDR 400) or higher ram if you want to get to 200 Mhz FSB. The A7N8X is picky about what memory will work. Corsair TwinX worked for me.

You have changed the boot order list in the bios?
A SATA to IDE adaptor should do the job. If the SATA is enabled in the bios and listed as one of the boot devices then it should work. When you say it won't boot, is it detecting the drive but not booting from it, or just not detecting it at all?

Hi, i dont know if this is the right place to post this but i have a question about motherboard and ram. Currently i have ASRock P43Twins1600 LGA 775 Intel P43 ATX Intel Motherboard with 4gb of DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) ram installed. And Intel 9400 cpu. I know this motherboard support up to 8gb of ram. So my question is can i add another 4gb PC8500 DDR2 1066MHz ram on top of the orignal 4gb? Thanks

A:Motherboard and Ram

It would probably work, the PC2-8500 ram would just run at PC2-6400 speeds if it did. You might run into some sort of conflict between the two types of memory but it should work if you set the timings (PC2-6400) manually. You would have to figure out where the faster RAM is comfortable running at 800mhz though... and underclock.

Hello, I was going to buy a power supply and I found this power supply. Will the 24 pin connector work with my 20+4 pin motherboard? The other power supply I might get is here. Any suggestions are welcome!


A:24 pin PSU for 20+4 pin motherboard?

I'm unfamiliar with a "20+4 pin motherboard". Old motherboards use 20 pin ATX power connectors. Newer, 24 pin. 20+4 pin power supplies are designed to be compatible with both. (With a 20 pin motherboard, you separate the additional 4 pin block from the PSU cable, and don't connect it.) It's also possible to plug a 20 pin cable into a 24 pin motherboard, but it may not supply enough power. I once had a 24 pin only PSU that came with an in-line adapter to plug into a 20 pin motherboard.

There are also 4 and 8 pin 12V connectors for the CPU. Some PSUs have only 4 pin connectors, some 4 and 8 pin, and some 4+4 that can be used with either. The 4 pin resembles the 4 pin block that can be separated form the 20+4 pin connector, but I believe they are not the same.

I hope that's clear.

Hi to all am in the need of a bit of help to cut the story short i need to get a new motherboard i have a Phenom II X4 965 and i run a atiradionTI Radeon HD 4890 1GB so what board would be the best one for me

A:Motherboard help

You might want to try the "Hardware" section.

The choices of motherboards are vast. We will need to know what features you are looking for in a board and what your budget is.

I would look on you favorite on line retailer and look at the Gigabyte motherboards in your price range that run your processor (AM3 socket I believe)

Good luck man

hey , this week or next week im getting a ram upgrade. im currently using 256 RamBus ram , and it will be cheaper to get like a gig of DDR SDRam than to get more rambus if its cheaper or not is not the question , the question is if my motherboard supports DDR SDRam , im running a P4 . my mother board is an Asus . AGP-G400 Series V 1.0.
thanks for the help everyone

A:hey need help with motherboard/ram

Are you sure that is a Asus board? I don't see any boards labeled AGP-G400, nor anything comes up for "G400". That is an odd model for a motherboard (compared to any that I have seen). I'm seeing a lot of Matrox card's coming up for "AGP-G400" but no motherboards.

This mobo says that both DDR and DDR2 can be used. Does anyone know if they can be used at the same time?

hey guys i have intel i3 1.90ghz  on my board i want to buy new motherboard with pentium i7 will that work and can anyone help me wit ideas.thankk you


It depends on the system model - it may or may not be possible.  At $300 or more plus labor cost, it won't be inexpensive - but we'll need the exact system model number to tell you whether it's an option.

My computer has just quit on me because of an apparent motherboard problem I am using this as an opportunity to upgrade both the board and the CPU which are en-route as I write this I moving up from an Athlon socket to a Phenom II socket AMD on an Asus M A T-M USB board Reading through the tutorial on transferring to a and CPU motherboard New new computer it appears to me that the new system will not boot or am I misunderstanding I assume this means that I will have to re-install everything so should I just re-install over the existing OS or should I format the drive first I would appreciate any advice or New motherboard and CPU observations on the processes that I need to follow to successfully get the new system working I feel sure that the information is already here somewhere but I'm not sure where or what to look for My computer knowledge and skills are very limited so I warn anyone replying that their input will probably generate even more questions from me

OK im looking to get a new motherboard. Right now with my current one im getting the infinity loop error alot and im hopeing getting a new motherboard will help ( I was planning this upgrade anyways. ) anyways from what i have read the infinity loop happens with via chipsets so id like to avoid those and i have a Tbird 1.1 so I need something that will hold that, but it needs to be upgradable to an XP processor. Also im ready to do to DDR ram so that the ram format i would like. So people here is the question what board should i go for?

Tbird 1.1
256 megs of pc133
Geforce2 ultra
Win XP

A:Motherboard ?'s DDR & XP

Hi Walker, I just wanted to let you know that I moved your thread to the mobos forum.

As far as your question goes, this thread is quite extensive:

I know in the thread I showed my distaste towards MSI but I have never experienced the infinite loop error with my MSI motherboard. I guess I was just a bit angry that they stopped supporting my mobo as soon as it got released.

Hi Techguy members I ve got a computer I m trying to fix for a cousin He plans to give this computer to his Motherboard daughter for Motherboard her to use The problem with it I assume is motherboard or cpu The computer is AMD Athlon XP with mb memory pc ATI video card gb hard drive cd-rom floopy drive When I first got the computer it would not power on at all Before I bought a new motherboard I had tested each component of the computer Power supply Hard drive Video card Memory All were working the only two items I was unable to test was motherboard and cpu I bought a motherboard hoping that the cpu was good Motherboard purchased Foxconn K S GXMG- L Socket A With the new motherboard installed the computer does power on and the power switch does work and the led power light lights up The cd-rom drives repond by opening and closing but the floppy disk drive and hard drive do not respond The indicator light for the hard drive working activity light comes on once the computer is powered on then goes out Both floppy and hard drive do nothing that I can tell The motherboard does not post at all Don t get no kind of activity on the monitor Nothing appears on the monitor the entire time the computer runs The cpu fan does run The motherboard does support AMD Athlon XP processors With what the computer is doing now I don t know if the problem is with the cpu or I got a defective motherboard I was sorta hoping someone could help me out With new motherboard the only improvements were that the computer powered on and cd-rom drives responded by opening and closing and the power switch worked and it s light lite up and I was able to turn computer off by power switch So I knew I had the switch hooked up right Before new motherboard nothing happened at all Reading a different thread on this site I set the motherboard up outside the case to check to see if it would run that way Checking to see if there was a case to motherboard mounting problem Doing this the results were the same as when the motherboard was inside the case There was no changes in what the computer did with the motherboard setup outside the case I think the cpu maybe bad or I got a defective motherboard I don t have no way to check the cpu which is AMD Athlon XP Also some thing happened to the keyboard that I had used when I installed the motherboard inside the case When connecting the keyboard to a different computer the keyboard is not recognized This makes me think the new motherboard is defective even more since the hard drive and floppy drive don t work with new motherboard If the cpu is bad on computer what will computer do when computer is powered on with a bad cpu Thanks in advance Mickeyy nbsp

I'm about to purchase the Intel Q6600 and a Nvidia 8800GTX. Which motherboard is best suited for this combination with good overclocking capabilities? I've looked at the Intel 975XBX2KR, and Asus Striker, but the Striker is a little too expensive I think. I appreciate any opinions to help me decide.

Oh... also, what memory should I buy for the the board you suggest?


A:Which Motherboard?

well... I'm an Asus fan boy. the board I have is stable, but overclocks only 35%. If you need something higher go with the psB deluxe, its cheaper too, and there are reported 80% overclocks with aftermarket coolers, or you could always go for the intel badaxe board if you want to get crazy with it.

I want to buy a new motherboard that is both PCI-E and Duo Core compatible. I'm not looking to spend much more than 150 though. I haven't a clue what some of the specs of a motherboard mean so i'm heavily relying on you guys to suggest to me the best motherboard possible within my price range.
