To increase memory on ASRock motherboard

  bpzoom 14:14 01 Aug 2008

I have an ASRock P4i65G 1.00 motherboard purchased and installed in 2006. Belarc Advisor print shows I have 1gb installed memory 512 x 2 in slots 0 and 1, and slots 2 and 3 are empty. The motherboard book says it can take up to 2gb memory. How do I find out precisely what type of memory I have which in slots 0 and 1? I have lost the invoice for that memory and I believe I must install 2 more 512mb of exactly the same type.

Go to Crucial click here and run the scanner. It will tell you what memory you have, which slots they are in and recommend an upgrade.

Or download and run CPUZ click here it will also tell you your memory speed and timings.

Absolutely brilliant, thanks to both of you. The Crucial site offers several compatable solutions from scrapping my 2 x 512 and replacing with 2 x 1gb, to a choice of two different 2 x 512mb dimms to add to my existing. I can't see the point in scrapping what I have so I may as well use up the remaining slots. The board won't take more than 2gb anyway. Thanks again.

On second thoughts for the sake of £19 difference, I might be better off taking a matching pair of 1gb each, than adding slightly different dimms of 512mb. That is what I will do. Thank you very much for your brilliant assistance.

but you would have to take out both of your 512Mb sticks of ram, if you wish to update. The ASRock P4i65G has only 2 dimm slots on the motherboard
