I have just bought 256Mb memory to add to the 2 x 64Mb chips allready installed in my computer, but it is only reading 128Mb plus the 2 x 64Mb, why is this. It is an Asus K7M motherboard which is capable of 768Mb total, so is it an incorrect bios setting or is the memory chip wrong? any ideas anyone?
HuggyG71, I have just booted up with the single 256Mb stick & it only reads 128Mb. R4, according to the info reviews on the net the board is capable of 768Mb total so this would seem to mean it can support 256Mb sticks in each of its 3 sockets. Its an old computer I am rebuilding for a friend, so I have no mobo manual or discs.
Huggy, yes that is the review that I looked at too, I bought the stick from Scan UK so should be able to exchange it, but for what? it is Pc100 CL2 stick which is apparrently the correct one, never had these probs with my own computers!!
Well it says 256Mb on the sticker? but it may be dodgy memory, I am contacting Scan.co.uk now to resolve this, I may try to put it in my computer to see what happens, but mine is PC133 DDR so not sure if I can do this.
