Having problems with your Acer PC Desktops ?

Have installed 2x 1G PC2 6400 800Mhz Modules into the PC. However the machine will not boot up. If I simply replace one of the modules with one that I removed (256MB at 533MHz it will boot - and will recognise half of the new memory? I have tried all variations of the new/old memory in all of the slots - the result is the same?


Answers :

What is your Motherboard type? Sometimes you might want to check that you can boot more than 2g's it is likly you can't but im sure you could, is there more than 2 slots for ram aswell? if there is try putting all 4 memory sticks in, if this further doesnt help, go to your motherboard website and get the latest drivers.

I have tried all combinations, I even bought two new 512 MB modules, but only the original 256 MB Samsung module works. So now I have four 512
