I've added two 128mb memory cards to my 440mhz Pentium II Advent 8595 but the system is only recognising 64mb for each card, the original memory of 64mb (2x32mb) is recognised correctly. This gives me a total of 192mb when I should have 320mb, the motherboard manual says that the system is unpgradebale to a total of 512mb .... any ideas?
if you use the click here site to find the correct upgrade ram for your unit it will also indicate how much ram each slot can take by the amount shown in the lists..find maker then model number ....remember the address for next time you buy ram its guaranteed to work thertefore cheaper in long run..
This info is straight off the site you gave me for an Advent. The memory I have installed is identical in type to the 64mb that is being recognised correctly (2x32mb). If the system only recognises up to 128mb per slot surely it should recognise the two sticks of 128mb as just that not 64mb each ?
Maximum memory: 512MB Standard memory: 64MB removable Slots: 4 (4 banks of 1)
The nearest model to the one you have specified is, Advent 8575! If this is the correct one, then you need to buy sticks of 128 at PC100, or 133 *sdram*. Make sure you have not purchased *ddram*, as this will not be recognised correctly.
