Please advice.

I just bought a Kingston 4gb 1333mhz ddr3 yesterday for my AsRock G41M-VS3 R2.0.
When I turned on the computer, nothing happens just black screen. No sounds from the mobo. Is it a faulty RAM, RAM not supported, or do I need to tweak some settings.

What CPU do you have ? Because no all the CPU can support 1333MHz. And if you use the FSB1333-CPU then you need go to the manual (page 21) to see how to set the jumper.

My CPU = Intel Pentium E6600
I tried setting the jumper and still the same.

Here is the list=http://www.asrock.com/mb/Intel/G41M-VS3%20R2.0/?cat=CPU
What happens if you put the old one back in?


If I put the old one back DDR3 2g, system runs normally. If I put both in or only the 4g, then nothing happens.
Btw, if it matters, my DDR3 2g = Kingston KVR1333D3S8N9/2, my DDR3 4g = Kingston KVR13N9S8/4.

When you mix the different RAM together, if they work then you are fine, but if they don't work together then it is a little bit tricky. You need go to the BIOS either set to 1066MHz or up the voltage a little bit ( like to 1.55V ) if you set the speed at 1333MHz, because your CPU has the FSB1066 so that 1333MHz is for OCing.

the old one 1333?= 4GB D.O.A. stick=RMA return.

I was thinking about it but this would be my 1st attempt to OC. That would mean I have to enter BIOS without the 4g ram on 1st, tweak the settings, then put on the 4g ram and see what happens, right? :p  Which voltage would that be? What would the worst scenario be... fried CPU and/or ram? :ouch:

D.O.A and RMA stands for? (sorry, I'm not fluent in English :D )

Sorry, DOA=dead on arrival, any part that will not do anything once installed.
RMA=return merchandise authorization, Contacting where the part was originally purchased (or the manufacturer) and opening a complaint ticket.

I used to have the LGA775 and I still have it but only for the test PC now. As long as you don't go over 1.57V from the RAM specification you will not damage the RAM and the CPU. Keep in mind for LGA775 CPU you can use the 1.8 to 2.0V DDR2 RAM.

Thanks a lot. I was thinking of it too. I just want to make sure that I didn't miss any steps to make it work. Otherwise, I might get a replacement and still have the same problem with my pc due to my lack of knowledge. So base on the informations I have given, the 4g ram should have worked without BIOS tweaking or do I need to choose other types of ram?

As far as I can tell all you changed was a increase the capacity, it should have been "plug & play".

I have tried increasing DRAM voltage to 1.55v but still nothing happens when I put the 4g on. For the DRAM freq., only options were Auto/400mhz DDR3_800/533mhz DDR3_1066; I tried all settings and same result. Anyway, thanks for the help. :)

Yes. Thanks a lot. I will try to get a replacement tomorrow and hopefully it will turn out well :)

Hi there, don't know if you still need help but here it goes.
There are several types of RAM - DDR, DDR2, DDR3 etc, several frequencies etc. But there is also one other thing, the memory density, High or Low density, in other words, the number of memory chips it has.
I had the same problem that you have. I bought a DDR3 4GB 1333Mhz and it was a high density stick, it was 8 memoy chips. I had to buy a new memory, and this time it works. Check that

I'm having a similar issue with exactly the same board. But looking at the number of chips to know if the memory is low density or high density does not convince me. I also have two Kingston memories, the non working one has the S9, the working other does not, both are DDR3 1333 MHz, and both have 8 chips.

It seems the board has problem recognizing the newest modules. Maybe we can try updating the BIOS.

I have the same problem (black screen, no sound) with GOODRAM DDR3 4096MB PC1333 CL9 GR1333D364L9/4G.
Old RAM (corsair ddr3 1333 4gb) works fine on the newest BIOS firmware 1.90

Same with me. Motherboard is brand new, on startup no post, no beep code. Tried with several different pairs of Kingston HyperX Fury 1333 2x4gb sticks. Mobo apparently is not designed for newer 1333 ddr3 modules. Unfortunately I don't have slower ram to test it.

No, BIOS update does not solve this. The update is labeled "Improves memory compatibility" but in this case nothing changed. I spoke to the store where I bought the stick, they told me this is not the first case of incompatibility. They accepted the stick back and returned me the money as they do not have another brand to offer me right now.

I used the money to purchase two 2GB Samsung memories (they work in dual channel, mother is very fast with them).

The G41 chipset (Dual Core/Core 2 Duo/Core 2 Quad) boards require double-sided low density (2Rx8) 4GB modules. They WILL NOT post with single-sided high density (1Rx8) 4GB memory installed.

I have a G41M and a P45 board and they both require double-sided low density 4GB (2Rx8) memory modules or they will not post.

They also require 2GB modules to be double-sided (2Rx8) although sometimes will post and run with single-sided 2GB modules but this can cause memory corruption and errors. However 1GB modules can be single-sided or double-sided. Newer 2GB and 4GB memory modules are almost all single-sided and high density (1Rx8) as newer motherboards can support this chip configuration and it is cheaper to manufacture.

You can tell if a 4GB memory module is 2Rx8 because it has 2 rows of 8 chips (totaling 16 chips) = 8 on one side and 8 on the other side. A 1Rx8 module has 1 row of 8 chips on one side only, and nothing on the other side.
