Your RAM is not running at the right frequency.

Yes it is!













bilibom, we're just kidding you. Really, how in the world would we know how to answer the question without knowing anything about your system? Please, think about it before you answer.

That system should run the memory at 400mhz.

See how easy that was?

Yes of course, I knew that. But that was not my question.
I have 4 dimms of 512MB (kingston pc3200, 400Mhz).
I m not sure if their frequency is at the right timing(400).
PCmark05 tells me their frequency is at 333.
My questions r:
-How can I check the real frequency, real time?
-How can I set proper timings(400) if they r not?

It does depend on the motherboard bios, some set the frequency automatically some allow you to tweak the settings. Check in Bios to see what the ram is set to.

It's amazing what more details can accomplish. I'm still curious as to how we could have possibly determined what you wanted from the first message. I'd love to hear an explanation of why that was sufficient information.

@big bear,
thanks for your reply.
I have already checked bios, I couldnt see where. I dont like the word 'tweak', I dont want tweak anything, u see. Just set the proper timing.
Could u plz tell me where exackly in bios can I do that?

@JohnWill,
I still believe that info of my system r not necessary for my questions, which havent been answered yet.
Allow me repeat them.

1.How can I see my ram's timing/frequency, now.
2.How can I change the number,if its not the proper.
(I m not asking for the proper number, I know it already-400)

I hope this time I was completely clear

When you're asking for free help, it's normally a good idea to be a bit more accommodating and a little less sarcastic. It makes people more inclined to offer assistance.

In the BIOS under Advanced Chipset Features, you will find an entry to either automatically identify the memory or manually set the speed. If it's not detected properly, you can set it manually there. In my BIOS, it's DRAM Configuration, it should be something similar in yours. Note that you'll have to also specify stuff like RAS, CAS, RAS to CAS Delay, etc. Those might take some tweaking to get right, but you can start with the specs of the memory you're using. Of course, that's another piece of information we don't have...

You might also consider doing some of your own homework. Like reading the owners manual for your motherboard, which should have that information listed in it, since you don't want to post that info. for us to use to assist you.

don't worry about the word tweaking. Anything that changes ram speed is considered tweaking wether it be bios change or a change from software in the OS environment. That could be a possible thing in windows itself or from 3rd party vendures. Try admin tools and system or performance. They will offer some extra source of info on your system.

ok boys, I can tell u any info u want... its not any problem.
The problem is how someone can check the timings of his RAM and how change these timings(266, 333, 400MHz).

@JohnWill, I ll check later my BIOS and inform u if I found it.
