Hi
I have a MSI motherboard P35 and I need to install single sided with the dual sided ddr2 800MHZ
I have four slots.
2 single sided ddr2 800MHZ (each one is 1GB) - DIMM A1&A2
1 double side ddr2 800MHZ DIMM B1orB2

I tried to install them together but no luck.
If I try to install the double sided the system stuck.

Can you please help me that?
Thanks

Have you checked the list of compatible memory modules?

Also, memory differs in voltage, timings, latency and other factors. These may make them incompatible with each other even if either would be acceptable.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

"I want to add that it's was ok before"

That's an important piece of info that was left out. Why didn't you say that right from the start? Your configuration makes sense (my response 3 does not). You now have 2GB (1GB + 1GB) in channel A & 2GB in channel B. Are they running in dual channel mode?

Why do you say "of course"? Not all boards will run 3 sticks in dual channel mode. Dual channel generally requires mutiplies of 2, in other words, 2 sticks or 4 sticks, & they MUST be installed in the correct slots. If you were only using the two 1GB sticks & had them in slots A1 & A2, you would only be using channel A, therefore they would run in single channel mode.

Response 9 is correct if what riider said is true then ur current setup is not running in dual channel mode simply because the ram sticks are not symmetric with each other.
Look at it this way u have 2 channels each channels has 2 slots which makes total of 4 slots, in order to run dual channel u need to have the 1GB sticks in slot 1 and slot 3 respectively the 2 GB however must be places in another slot this makes the 1GB sticks run in dual channel but 2GB will not join the party.
You need multiples to run in dual channel they usually come together
