Default Pc Ram 533mhz DDR2 and 400mhz DDR

Hi - My mother board is a Gigabyte GA-8VT880P Combo (Rev 1.x)

Ram - Duo DDR Design
Top innovation of showing GIGABYTE advanced technology leadership with combination of DDR & DDR2 memory support on single motherboard. Providing a more flexible memory connectivity to meet different user's needs.

2 x DDR 2 533mhz

2 x DDR 400mhz

My problem / question is :

I currently have to 512mb in the DDR2 slots (533mhz =1 gig)

I have a 256 meg stick of DDR 400 mhz, when i insert this and boot up it loads windows and everything is fine, only windows is not seeing the extra ram.

Do i have to have another chunk in the last 400mhz dimm slot for this to be recognized ?

Im confused i thought i could just plug ram in and away she went ?


Any help would be gratefully appreciated.

Cheers

Make sure it is pushed all the way in and the clips on the side make a click sound when inserting it.

You can only use one type of ram at a time.

You would have to check from your motherboard provider to see what the supported max ram is. But yes if you already have 2 x 512mb 533 mhz ram and want to add 2 x 1 gig 533mhz ram just make sure its the same manufacture and the same spec's just the 1gig version.
