I wanted to upgrade (I bought a 512MB DDR PC3200 400MHz RAM)
Well, I have 2 slots, the 256 was in the upper one, I installed the 512 in the lower --> PC does not work (beeps)
So, I tried the following :
512 in upper, nothing in lower --> beeps
256 in lower, nothing in upper --> Beeps
256 in upper, nothing in lower --> works

I thought my 512 RAM was defective but it worked OK on my other PC (which has PC2100 256x2 RAM) :rolleyes:
I thought the lower slot was defective, but putting the 512 in the upper and nothing in the lower did not work !! :rolleyes:

And if my 512MB is not detected, why doesn't my PC start with 256MB RAM???:twisted:
I am getting confused, help me please :eek:

Sorry, I tried again and it worked with the 256MB RAM in the lower slot.
Thus, the RAM I bought seems to be incompatible !!! (it's an NCP DDR PC3200 2.5V one)
It should have worked, but it did not. Does anyone know why?
