I ordered 2 gb of ram, in 2 1gb parts. i installed them along with my original 1 512mb part and the computer turns on then freezes during start up. i removed the orginal ram and the computer works what is the problem????
Either that or the new memory isn't compatible with the old stick. Sometimes pc3200 for eg.will run with pc2700 but more often than not won't. pc3200 will usually always run with pc2100 exept with certain motherboards. Also a lot of amd boards don't run very well with all 3 slots full. For the sake of 512mb ram i would just use the two 1gb sticks.You will hardly notice the difference.
