Problem adding extra RAM to PC. Win XP Home (ver 5.1.2600) with Kyro K7T266 Pro 2 Ver 2.0 motherboard
PC has 3 slots and as new had 256 MB DDR SDRAM factory installed using 2 sticks in slots one and two. Tried to fit another 256 MB with single stick in slot 3. New memory is PC2100 and acc to handbook is OK to install.
Problem is Win XP Home will not load and get error message '...... file missing or corrupt.... System32\Driver\Ntfs.sys.
Note: when PC boots the BIOS recognises the new total of 512 MB Ram.
maybe a Module short circuit ! however its difficult to say without seeing the system ..all the DDR Ive seen comes as 2.5v And the boards are set to suit that.. Where did you obtain the mem strip ? Generic type or not ?
I Can-not comment on the supplier I have never dealt with them ..But doubt if Much can be done unless you ordered quoting which motherboard and version you were buying for and of course their specified terms and conditions. Which Is why I buy from crucial.using their memory selector One can hardly go wrong, having said that some-one may know differently..
