Motherboard without soldered RAM

2020-09-17, 18:19 PM

Hi everyone, i've recentlly bought an idepad 320 motherboard (NM B242 - Vendor: ASK). 
Strangely it has no soldered memory whatsoever. 

I've bought a 2400mhz DDR4 stick to put it on the slot but the notebook doesnt turn on. It keeps reseting after 5-10 seconds.

Only 2133mhz will work? (The Intel ARK tells me it supports max 2133mhz for the i7 7500U) Or the problem can be another thing? Thank you.

Hi cicerodemetrio,

 

Welcome to the Community Forums.

 

DDR4 2400 SODIMM should work and it is even offered as certified ram for the IP 320.

 

Frequency will just underclock to the lowest and will work fine.

 

Perhaps you should check the new ram on another machine to see if it is ok or have a known good ddr4 and check if the slot of the board is not the issue.

 

I hope this helps answer your query.

 

Regards

Thank you for the answer @spidey101 . I've tested it in a ideapad 330 with a 8th generation i7, in the Intel ark website says it accepts 2400mhz. But in the 320 didn't work

Hi cicerodemetrio,

 

If you have already updated your BIOS proceed on resetting the BIOS back to defaults (F9 then save and exit.

 

Shut down and restart to check back with the new ram on restart.

 

If you still have BSOD after this then as mentioned, best to test the integrity of the slot.

 

Regards

The problem is: I can't get access to bios cause the screen won't even turn on. It keeps looping, and when I remove the memory it sustains itself on but nothing appears on screen.
