I've been having trouble with my P4C800-E motherboard lately... it hasn't been giving me trouble before today but today I got some new RAM and I think it may be messing with the board. I think I caused a bit of trouble with it too :thumbsup: , but it's giving me a weird inconsistent error as well. Every now and again I get a message saying that the overclocking failed and to press F1 for setup, F2 to continue... it's more of an annoyance as if I press F2 I can just go into Windows; however, if I go into the setup the overclocking is set to 'standard' so as far as I'm aware of I have never set the system to overclock at all. I recently upgraded my RAM today from 1GB (2x512MB) to 2GB (2x1GB) and I'm not sure how big a deal this is but if anyone has any ideas of what's going on and what I might do about it, please let me know. Thank you.


If it helps at all I run an Intel P4 with hyperthreading and also recently installed a new 500GB internal hard drive.

What is the make and model of all of the RAM modules?

I was asking about all of the modules because that motherboard can run the RAM in dual channel. The modules need to have the same specs in order to run properly in dual channel.

I took the other modules out but they were the same type and speed (DDR 400 PC3200) although I don't know if they were the same brand.... I doubt it. But yeah, as of now, it's just the new pieces (2GB).

I don't understand the question... there's one on each thing of two... sorry, I'm not too big with the words right now... but It's like this

with the carrots pointing to where the RAM modules are. The last few times I've restarted my computer I've not had the overclocking message.

Sorry about that, populating means the slots that you have the RAM installed in. To run dual channel on that board you want the modules to be in slot A1 and B1.
