I've just added a new DIMM to my Multivision Elite XP320 PC,(which is 2 years old) and it is not recognised by the computer. The original DIMM was ELIXIR part no M2U25H64DS8HB0G-75B, PC2100, 256MB, non parity, CL2.5. New DIMM CRUCIAL part no CT6464Z265.8TC2, same details, but 512MB. only difference i can spot apart from MB is old ram has 8 chips on each side, new one has 8 on one side only. The new part fits OK, but is just not recognised. I've tried fitting the dimms both ways round, i.e old in slot 1, new in slot 0 and vice versa. no difference. new chip tried alone, computer doesn't start at all, doesn't bring up any text on screen. Multivision gone bust, crucial say it should work, but may need a bios upgrade, motherboard reported as ATI A3 + ALI M1535+ chipset by Belarc advisor, can't find an A3 motherboard on ATI website to obtain bios upgrade. Any ideas anyone?!!!!
mmm... I can't access the first link, "page not found"?! The second link takes me to a list of motherboard manufacturers, including a link to ATI webpage, but I can't find any reference to my A3 motherboard on the ATI webpage. Have I missed something?!
