Corsair XMS Extreme CMX512-3200LL and ASUS K8V SE Deluxe Problems


Recommended Posts

I have the following:


KINGMAX SuperRam MPXB62D-38KT3R, 256MB, PC400, CL2.5 1st Memory Slot


Corsair XMS Extreme CMX512-3200LL 184 Pin 512MB DDR 3rd Memory Slot


Athlon 64 3200

128 MG PNY Geforce 6800

Serial ATA 150 120gb Hard drive

ASUS K8V SE Deluxe Motherboard

Bios Version 1003.2


How do I get the Corsair memory to work.


If I put it in slot 1 by itself my computer wont boot and the Mothereboard just beeps.


If I put it in slot 3 with the Kingmax memory in slot 1 my computers boots but do not register the Corsair Memory.


Is the any settings I need to change in the BIOS?


Am I doing something wrong?


I am kinda new to this.

Please try and reset the bios with just our module installed and see if it will post. However, with this platform and or MB you would not be able to Mix memory. Either use our modules or use the other makers.

Not exactly what I was looking for. Let me re-frase the question.

With just our module installed and resetting the bios (with no power connected and the battery removed there should be a jumper to clear the bios) will it post with our module installed?

No Problem, by the way if it will post with our module, just load setup defaults and then set the Dim Voltage to 2.8 Volts and test the system with just our module installed with http://www.memtest.org. But I am sure it will not post with both modules installed, sorry that is just a limitation of the memory controller, in that both modules would need to be matched.

Is this what you are talking about?


1. Clear RTC RAM (CLRTC)


This jumper allows you to clear the Real Time Clock (RTC) RAM in the CMOS. You can clear the CMOS memory of date, time, and system setup parameters by erasing the CMOS RTC RAM data. The Ram data in CMOS, that include system setup information such as system passwrods, is powered by the onboard button cell battery.


To erase the RTC RAM


1. Turn of the computer and uplug the power cord

2. Remove the onboard Battery

3. Move the jumper for pins 1-2 (default) to pins 2-3. Keep the cap pins

2-3 for about 5-10 seconds, then move them back to 1-2

4. Replace the battery

6. Put in Cosair Memory

5. Plug the power cord and turn ON the computer

6. Enter BIOS

7. Load the BIOS Default Settings or key-in data
