I can't seem to find your motherboard and also your videocard. SO I can't give you an information in a technical way. But if we try to exclude the motherboard and videocard, the result would be you installed two 64MB RAMs.
Hmmm can you try the RAM in another PC? If you can and it shows the same mb then I'd say you got mis-marked RAM chips.
A lot of the time the chips have labels on them that details the specs. I've come across, in the past, of opening a package that says one spec and the chip says something different.
Something else you can try is pulling the chips (power off the computer first of course :) ) and reseat the RAM chips.
I don't have another pc to try it in :( I doubt they are mis-marked because I bought 512mb x2, and both modules are exactly 64mb each, ive tried re-seating them and putting them in different places but nothing works :(
It appears that yuu have the correct memory for the unit.
Have you tried just one chip at a time? if so does the system report the correct memory size for the one chip? (try each chip in the same memory slot if you havent tried this. You may find the bad guy) I can't recall if you can try this in each slot.
ok, you could try cleaning the memory slots with alcohol and something small like a Q-tip.
Before you try this please power down the unit and unplug it form the wall. I'd let it sit a little bit (5 mins) before starting to clean it.
Dip the Q-tip in the achohol and just get it damp.
Lightly clean the contacts in the slot. You may have to redampen your q-tip from time to time.
Once you have done both slots, walk away from the PC and let it air out. The achohol will evaporate. It won't take long, but you may want a little break. :)
Try the modules in the one slot again. This time try it in both slot one and slot two.
Should this fail, you could try resetting your CMOS. This will clear your settings and the system will have to recreate them when it boots up. The documentation link has the procedures on how to do that.
I hope one of those work, I'm running out of ideas. :)
Me too I'm running out of ideas after reading your posts. I think you should return that to where you bought and test it to them if it's showing 512MB or 64MB or you could bring your system unit just to have an evidence.
Ihave an Idea how to end the nightmare ..do this...replace the ram with new stick( but this time... take out all others and try it alone then if you still get the unusual error ..replace rtc battery immediately!!!!
