Just added 256Mb (DDR PC2100) in slot 1 to an existing 128Mb in slot 2 on a K7T266 Pro(MS-6380)motherboard. I believe I have pushed it in the slot enough as the plasic clips at the sides are closed inline with the adjacent module. Boots-up as normal but does not appear to recognise the addition memory? I thought that maybe I have to 'Reset Configuration Data' in BIOS but no such information? How can I get it to recognise the additional RAM, just thought it would of been automatic? Any help please?
Thanks for the response, I've been on it on day, contacted 'CRUCIAL'("The Memory Experts")twice they were immediately available and helpful. They were suprise that my original set-up had slot 2 occuplied, so suggested replacing this (128)with the new (256), the machine hung so I put back the old one. Further sugested testing the slots 1 and 3 with the old module and machine hung again at start-ups and even in slot 2 (panic!), but I found you must really firmly press home to get it to work I manage to start-up the old one in slot 2. Trying more firmly in the slot 1 and 3 still couldn't get it to work, so with the new module in slot 2 really firmly pressing hard after the side clips had click it manage to finally start-up with 256Mb. At least I know there no fault with this module (it is now being recognised), I was hoping to have also the additional 128Mb but it now appears that both slots 1 and 3 are suspect I shall have to accept I only have one slot.
