Hi PPL.I have a mobo.with two sets of mem.slots.one X 2 SDRAM.and one x 2 ddr.I'm running SDRAM 512.now, but I want to run it in ddr.when I install 256 ddr.it won't bootup,it is an "ELITE K7S5A."I have gone into "BIOS"and clicked what I think is right,but,when I boot again as one has to,it won't fire,can anybody help please,thanks, GOBEEN

Have you removed the SDRAM? I think the board gives you the choice of using either, but not both at the same time. j.

i had a look at crucial ( knowing that u can't mix the two) saw that Elite isn't down as a compatible motherboard for DDR

go to click here and check the ammount and type of memory the mobo supports.this board is listed as revision K7S5A rev1.X/K7S5A rev3.X/K7S5A pro and K7S5A2.

Thanks suzie005, didn't think you could, but wasn't positive. huggyg71 your right 4 different models, gets a bit confusing! Powerless, Yep! had one myself until last year, then changed to the K7S6A model, reason being that the first version of K7S5A had a bit of trouble recognising my XP 1800 CPU. :o(

excuse me for asking but can sumbody tell me why the motherboard isn't down on crucial's list?

They are, all four models are shown under the heading. ecs-elite. Regards. j.

on this page there are some bios that claim to fix "DDR hang during POST" click here

just had a look at click here though and it says you have"2 DDR DIMM sockets and 2 DIMM sockets support (can not be used simultaneously)
Two 184-pin DDR SDRAM (DDR200, DDR266) or
Two 168-pin 3.3V SDRAM (PC100, PC133)
Maximum: 1.0GB (DDR or SDRAM)"


is the memory in the correct slots?
