GA-7VRXP and PC2700 DDR memory

Discussion in 'Gigabyte' started by Simon Elliott, Aug 16, 2004.

  1. I've just tried adding a 512MB stick to my board.

    Couldn't get it to work, either on its own or with the 256MB of PC2100
    already present. Tried both performance and fail-safe settings. The
    manual suggests it should work but implies performance could unreliable.

    Has anyone else managed to get a Rev 1.1 board working with this sort of
    memory? If so, which version of the BIOS (I'm currently using F4)?

    Just trying to figure out whether to persist with trying or to take it
    back for replacement/refund.

  2. Tried a replacement stick, different make.

    Still didn't work - W2K goes into a boot loop, regardless of the slot or
    whether the original memory is also installed or performance/fail safe
    settings in BIOS.

    Going to try a PC2100 stick sometime.
