Adding more RAM

  Farleyjim 15:12 07 Dec 2006

I have just decided to upgrade my RAM from two sticks of 256MHz(512Mhz total) to 1.5GHz by adding a new 1GHz.I was careful to buy the same speed ie DDR-400MHz PC3200. When I fitted the new 1GHz module into the motherboard(ECS 648FX), the PC went ape. I took the 1GHz out and the system started normally again, after telling me that it had receovered from a serious error. I then took out the two 256GHz modules and left just the 1Ghz in there. This too worked OK. I then added one of the 256MHz and that was OK but when I added the second one, the PC rejected that again.However,I was quite keen to have all three installed. At present I have one 256MHz strip and one 1GHz strip fitted and that seems OK. Am I stuck with just these two or am I doing something in the wrong order?

Thanks Gongoozler. It does seem quite involved but I'll wait to see how it goes with m 1.25Ghz before I do anything else. It has improved noticeably since I've gone from 512MHz to 1.25GHz
Many thanks.

hi not sure wether im reading this correctly but check the link it seems to suggest if you use 2 sticks use one type of ram and if using 3 sticks another?
