mobo - Gigabyte GA-8VM800PMD-775-RH
chipset- Intel P4 3.2GHz
ram- 2 x ram slots with Transcend 1GB single-sided in each
My local dealer upgraded my ram with above-mentioned ram chips. After experiencing startup problems (mouse and keyboard inactive after startup), I went onto the Gigabyte site and drew the specs for my mobo. I quote as follows:
1) 2 DIMM memory slots (supports up to 2 GB memory)
2) Supports 1.8v DDR DIMM
3) Supports DDR2 533/400 DIMM
Note: Use of a Double-sided memory module (the single chip is 512 Mbit) is required if you wish to install a 1 GB memory module.
Now, probably the single-sided ram chips are the cause of my problems??!!
Back to my dealer, he's never heard of Double-sided ram chips, and is having difficulty sourcing them.
Can you help with particular ram modules, manufacturers, dealers etc. or other advice :S
Also, most ram now is 667MHz, will this work in the 533 slots?
Many thanks an' all
