If your mobo supports (READ THE MANUAL FIRST) U can coz I have one mercury pi845glm-agp board which supports
2GB of Ram( 1 GB per slot) @266 MHz speed but for the unavailability of 266Mhz I bought one Zion 512MB DDR ram module @333 MHz speed which
is performing very well without any problem

Is there any solution for speed.

^^ Your mobo has 2 DDR & 2 SD Ram Slots.
Use either DDR or SD ram slot only. Don't use DDR & SD Ram slot together.

Now follow these procedures :

1. Update your mobo bios.
2. Remove all Rams.
3. Install only the DDR 1 GB 400Mhz Ram module on DDR1 Slot.
4. See if your system starts.

5. If not then :

1. Check the Ram
2. A DDR 512MB ram will work for sure as I've seen people running 512MB DDR Ram with that board.

Try mercury's official website:
www.mercury-pc.com

As regarding ram speed issue your DDR 200Mhz ram will run @ 133Mhz speed coz it's the limitation of the chipset not the mobo. So if your sys is running fine than there is no need to update the bios.

Hello thanks for suggestion,

I tried other combinations also a 1gb 400MHz is not working, so tried with 2.5 processor still do not support, Now trying to locate 333MHz or 133 1gb ram.
