  Dassy 13:32 22 Sep 2006

I recently installed a new pc100 168 pin 128mb sdram in my pc but in doing so i noticed that the existing ram stick was alot smaller in width but the same in length,but i continued anyway and rebooted the pc then it checked the memory ok but then a error message appeared pin size error!it entered windows after with more speed indicating to me the ram stick was working!does anyone what is wrong or is there any worries for me to continue using my pc with my new ram stick installed?

I've never seen or heard of this error - nor can I find it with google.

As long as the new memory fitted properly in the slot, it should be the correct type. Is the new larger memory size recognised by Windows? - if so then evertthing is hunky-dory.

On some systems I have seen the message Mem size error when adding RAM - on the next reboot, the new memory size has ben logged into the BIOS and the error doesn't appear again (I think Compaq systems do something like this). Could this be what you saw?
