I am getting three long beeps and then it stops beeping for 5 seconds. Then three beeps again. Its the same beep that if i would took sdram out of the slot and there were no ram on mobo at all.

The beeps at the beginning of the boot are designed as warnings to help you find the specific area that is causing the problem. Once you understand that you can use one of the many beep code directories. Your board has AMI Bios. Each companies beeps are different. Here is a link for you that includes some ways of diagnosing the problem

Thanx so much. I will do EVERYTHING that website says and tell you what happened.

Problem again. Nothing worked. Three beeps means bios can't read first 64kb of memory. Bt i know for sure that memory works. I've tried it on other computer. So im thinking its a mobo problem. That the only thing that left. Could it be that mobo just doesnt read those 2 ddr slots? And if i can be how is it possible i mean what can be wrong?

On the website of the company who made that ddr ram it says that ram is for PCB 6 LAYERS mobo only. What exactly is that and can it be the problem?

Hi Guys,

Heeeeeeeeeeeellllllllllllllllllllppppppp !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I have also having problem with my Motherboard P4vxasd2+. I have P4 2.4 Ghz but my computer reconized only 1.8 Ghz. I have tried to switch the jumper to 133 and it shows the 2.4 Ghz but it freezes on the first screen and gives me an error and it does not goes to windows 2000. I already flash my BIOS with the newest version and nothing to gives its still hang on the Boot Menu.. Any help ???

Billy

Alex,
I do believe you have possibly indentified the source of some of these memory issues. The ECS site describes the P4VXASD2+ as an ATX four layer PCB. I would like to read the article on your memory being compatible with 6 layer boards. Could you send a link. I appreciate your determination.

PCB means printed corcuit board. All good quality PC133 and above are manufactured with 6 layer boards. The cheapo stuff is 4 layer. I don't think it really matters. Is ECS saying that their crappy board will only take 6 layer? The four layer should work fine, it just will offer a lower level of performance. If you want 6 get geil mushkin (munchkin?) kingston or corsair. And Alex it's time to take that sucker back!

Payton,
Alex's post indicates that the RAM is compatible with a 6 layer Motherboard , not that the RAM is 6 layers.(or four) . I would still like to know more about this issue.
By the way, this type of exchange is exactly why we continue to iron out the problems on this board.(to those of you who feel it is a waste of time)
much of the info that has been exchanged here is applicable to problems with other hardware also. I know I've learned a few things!

Please re-read (closely) last several posts and consider re-evaluating your response.

Yes there are even 8 layer boards out there, but lets get down to the reality of the issue. The amount of layering on this board has nothing to do with these problems. They are cheap boards and there is a real possibility that many of them have manufacturing flaws within the layering, but you guys are now looking for basic design flaws to blame your problems on. I don't know. But whether the board is a four layer or 6, or 8, doesn't have bearing on memory. To be honest with you I never looked at the sticker on the front of the box when I bought it. Only later did I see that it said the board was a returned item, that was repackaged, and had full factory warranty. So someone brought my board back cause it didn't work. But it rocks for me! I suspect that you all have something wrong with the way you set it up, but I may be wrong. The CD that came with the mobo has so many different drivers, you may have loaded the wrong ones. All the drivers on that CD don't go to this board, or are different for different OSs. Did you all read the install files before loading them? Trying to help involves guess work. It's like a blind man looking at a glossy picture with braille. I would have never known Alex was getting 3 beeps in his bios, it was never mentioned until I happened to ask.

Here is the link about ram: http://www.buyaib.com/aib51pcddr33.html
And by the way.. I know this board is cheap @$$ cr@p. But its the only thing i've got so if you guys dont want to talk about it anymore and help other ppl solve their problems, what in the hell are you doing in this forum? Chillin'?

Alex,
Thanks for posting the memory link. I took a look at it , and it says the MEMORY is a six layer PCB; not that it is only compatable with 6 layer motherboards. So , this (lowgrade) memory , will not run on this (lowgrade) motherboard.
Once again , it looks as though the P4VXASD2+ is a great place to use up all that cheap (but quality)PC133 that is out there.

I had the same problem as Alex with the system not booting at all with the brand (Samsung) of DDR333 memory I was using. I exchanged that memory for a brand called Elixar and all problems ended. Many motherboards,especially cheapos like ECS, are very finicky about the brand of mmemory you use. Elixar certainly worked for me in this board. I also have a pc running fine with this board using sdram and a 1.7 Celeron with fsb set at 100.

Thanx you all so much for helping me out with my problem. Ya looks like I will have to change my RAM. So that Elixar company works for this mobo huh? OK im changing my ram to elixar then. And once again thanx you all so much :)

P.S. I hope those who havent fixed their probs with P4VXASD2+ will fix it somehow and I wish that forums will have more people like all of you guys.
