    asus k8n and 1.5gb ddr400 problem

    just got my new computer today and i keep getting programs crash with no reason given , could it be that the k8n mobo does not like 1536 mb (3 x 512 ddr400/pc3200) of kingston value ram ?

    the asus website/manual says it should run with 3 slots full using ddr400 as it supports it

    What proved to be the problem in the end? I presume you sorted it?

    if it keeps crashing, then get the vendor to sort it out. if you want to look at it yourself, then try taking the 3rd dimm out and see how this effects stability.
    if it doent help, try swapping the dimms about in case you have a dodgy stick.

    what cpu do you have, and which core? the older core processor might not support 3 double-sided dimms at 400mhz, and may want to slow it down to 333mhz or could be causing stability probs.

    doing it yourself might invalidate your warranty, so i would suggest getting the vendor to sort it straight away. of course, it might not even be the RAM.

    EDIT - this is what happens when you leave the computer half way through typing a reply.

    4GB is the maximum for XP Pro. Windows Sever 2003 and a 32-bit motherboard with Physical Address Extension will support up to 128GB.
