I am having a problem installing additional RAM (2GB to 4GB). My board is beyond free support.
Serial #: AZLT62707833
PROCESSOR: Core2Duo E6600 @ 2.40GHz
The board came with 2GB RAM installed. This RAM worked fine before my upgrade difficulties and it works fine now, after going back to the original configuration.
Two Kingston KVR667D2N5/1G 1GB PC2 – 5300 CL5 240-pin DMM
I added two modules of the exact same RAM. Shortly after boot-up, random screen freezes and lock-ups began. I ran memtest.exe, which reported bad RAM.
I removed the new RAM and the computer ran fine.
Believing the “bad RAM” report, I bought 4GB of new RAM:
Two: Crucial 2GB kit (1GBx2), 240-pin DIMM, DDR2 PC2-6400 memory module
Part Number: CT2KIT12864AA800
Module Size: 2GB kit (1GBx2)
Package: 240-pin DIMM
Feature: DDR2 PC2-6400
Specs: DDR2 PC2-6400 • CL=6 • Unbuffered • NON-ECC • DDR2-800 • 1.8V • 128Meg x 64 •
This RAM conformed to the “Supported DIMM Configurations” shown on Intel’s advice pages for the DP965LT. This specific Crucial RAM was shown among the “Vendor Self Tested Memory” on the advice pages for the DP965LT.
Again, shortly after boot-up, random screen freezes and lock-ups began. I ran memtest.exe, which reported bad RAM.
I removed the new RAM, replaced the original two Kingston modules and the computer ran fine.
I want to max out the RAM (4GB for my 32bit OS).
Have I given enough information for a response?
According to the following link, any of this memory should work for you:
It seems you have problems when installing DIMMs into all four slots.
Did you try removing your old 1GB DIMMs to replace with either brand of the new ones? Does the system function with only 2GB of the new modules installed? If the answer is yes, you could try two 2GB modules in two slots (like KVR533D2N4/2G).
