My Ram doesnt work with my MB?


Recommended Posts

OK I bought an ASUS P4R800-VM motherboard.


For ram it says


"RAM: 4x DIMM for DDR400/333/266 Max 4GB "


So I bought this ram:

Corsair Value Select (Dual Pack) 184 Pin 512MBx2 DDR PC-3200 - OEM



In my motherboard I have 4 slots for ram. I have 2 blue slots and 2 black slots.


I have tried the ram in every possible combination you can think of, computer turns on works etc. It constantly crashes, why do I think it is the ram you may ask. Well because when I just use 512 ram, it works, but when I use both sticks my games just randomly close... my computer will randomly restart sometimes... never has happened with just 1 stick... only with both.

That memory is double sided.




Note: Supports one single-sided PC3200 (DDR400) DIMM per channel only

Per the manual:

This motherboard may only detect PC2700 (DDR333) system memory when you install two PC3200 (DDR400) DIMMs in one channel or when you install double-sided PC3200 (DDR400) DIMMS.

That would do it. Try setting the memory to 333 Mhz, and place them in either both blue slots, or both black slots.
