Module problem

  daveac41 13:02 19 Jun 2008

I have recently installed a 1Gb memory module. Startup information recognizes it, but Belarc, SiSoft and Crucial read it as 512mb, not 1Gb. Then I get the blue screen!!!!
Could I have knocked something?

Please assist

Re-seating the memory chip on the motherboard make sure it lock down or change the socket

Thanks Ambra4, I tried that, but still the Belarc, etc won't recognize it. No blue screen, though

Is the BIOS set to Auto in relation to memory timings and settings?
Is this the only stick in the PC?

Is windows see it as 1GB right click - My Computer – Properties – General Tab

If yes that is all you need

Ditch999. I have been able to change Memory modules before, without having to touch BIOS.
I have 2 modules, and have tried using all modules in my two slots, but still the 1GB plays up. Have gone back to my original layout, 250+700. Suspect 1Gb may be a bummer - it's off E Bay!!

Ambra - it doesnt show in Windows

You could be right if not showing in windows and you get BSOD

OK thanks for all assistance - I'll return the stick..
