Upgrading RAM

  Young neil 18:31 03 Sep 2003

I have had some trouble trying to upgrade my system's RAM. I currently have 128MB 133u RAM in my system and have tried upgrading to 256/133 but my system will not allow me to do so.I have tried 3 different memory modules but still have had no luck. When I try replacing the memory I get eight continuous beeps. My system has a phoenix BIOS, my processor is a Celeron 1.2GHz/100MHz,

Has anyone any ideas...

You need to check what your mobo will support. You can check on the crucial site click here

My motherboard handbook says that I can increase the amount of memory in the system up to 512MB
Using 64MB
256MB modules
In either 100/133 MHz Non-EEC unbuffered SDRAM.

I have tried this but still have had no luck, I also checked the other dimm slot to make sure it wasn't the connector but all seems to be OK.

did you try removing the old module and testing the pc with just the new in place?

Yes I tried this, and I also tried the various modules in another system and they all worked, thats why Im pretty stumped as to what the problem is

hi if i were you i would follow kryptic`s adviseand visit crucial they have a search facility that will tell you the ram that is ideal for your system.I had the same problem earlier in the year i had bought 2 seperate lots of ram for my h.p.that wouldn`t work and although crucial was more expensive they offer a money back guarantee if the ram they recomend doesn`t work
