Memory Controller NA


Recommended Posts

I upgraded my memory from PC 4200 x2 512 EL Dual Ch Platinum Edition 2.5 -3-3-8. To PC4000 x2 1gb Dual Ch Platinum Edition XTC 3-3-3-8.Upon rebooting i only got to CMOS........ OK And seen that my memory controller was not available.

reset my bios and replaced the memory with the original stick, still said memory controller was NA.I was running 2 WD Raptors in Raid 0. I disconnected 1 and tried to reformatt.After selecting drive C: to install ,it formatted installed the drivers then rebooted, only to repeat the reinstall again.Does anybody have any ideals on whats up with this ???Hate to think it's the motherboard again as the first one i bought back in January was defective and had to RMA it.Is this another defective motherboard?

No he is saying his CPU is a speed demon.

 

It is running fine.

 

As far as your situation.

 

If your system boots up then your memory controller is working.

 

With out it your system would be dead.

Everything was ok till i switched my memory. When booting up under PCI device listing,the first one is memory Controller and under IRQ it say's NA. at the end of this page it will run till it says CMOS....... ok then freezes. In the mean time i tried to reformatt and after it askes were i would like to install OS, it downloads the drivers then reboots and starts the sequent all over again.This is my second motherboard in 2 months and if it's the motherboard again,i'm thinking about going in another direction.My patients with the dfi board is running out.

 

 

Would like to thank SageI & bestmancajun

When you put the new RAM in, did you clear CMOS by jumping the pins before powering up with the new RAM ? I usually put the new RAM in, short the CMOS pins to clear CMOS, power up, go minto the BIOS, set optimized defaults, save and reboot. Upon reboot, I will enter the BIOS and set it up accordingly, setting the primary RAM timimgs, then rebooting again and into windows.

That is normal on that board and was that way before you swapped memory. You are just having memory problems now and paying closer attention to details and 'now' you see such that you had not seen before.

 

Now you got to find out why that newly released memory is giving problems but it has nothing to do with that NA at memory controller since all my experts and venus boards do the same no matter what cpu is in them.

I reset the BIOS then put the old memory back in. I tried to reformatt but after asking me were to install the OS ,it downloads the drivers reboots and then recycles all over again. I'm totally lost and don't know what to do.I've even tried just using 1 stick of memory in dimm # 2 to no prevail.

Exactly or specifically as outlined below or results will be invalid.

 

Remove power from the system. Pull cord from wall if you must. Or from rear of power supply.

 

Remove the battery.

 

Move the CMOS jumper to clear postition (pin 2 and 3).

 

Move the speaker jumper to on position. Page 7 quick start manual.

 

Make sure you have a wired keyboard plugged into the PS2 port. Not USB in other words. USB to PS2 OK.

 

Leave the CMOS jumper at clear for at least 3-5 hours. Many take overnite.

 

Put ONLY one ( 1 ) stick of memory in ORANGE slot closest the top edge of motherboard.

 

Replace the battery.

 

Set the CMOS jumper back to normal (pin 1 and 2).

 

Press and hold down the "Insert" Key on the keyboard.

 

Apply power to power supply again WITH "Insert" key still pressed down.

 

Press the start/power on button on the rig. WITH the "Insert" key still pressed down.

 

When you hear the beep from the speaker. NOTE: on RDX-200 you may not hear beep but see action on the monitor screen and then>> Release the "Insert" Key and quickly press the "Delete" key and enter the bios and load optimized defaults. Save and Exit bios and reboot to enter bios to make necessary adjustments.
