Having problems with RAM. Purchased a gig of RAM for my machine and I am having problems with it hanging the system. I have currently to sticks of pc2100 in slots 1 and 2 and everything works fine.
The new pc3200 will only work from slot 3 and when i try to add to any of the other slots I get the long warning beep. When I remove from either slot everything works fine.
Did an exhaustive search for any problems this particular mobo may have but I can find nothing. A friend has the exact same board and bought the same RAM and he has no problems.
Here's my setup:
ATHLON XP 2400
ASUS A7V 266E
Plextor 716 DVD
SB 5.1 Card
ATI Radeon 7200
Windows XP SP2
384 MB pc2100 RAM
I am aware that the pc3200 will clock lower as my board is only a 266mhz.
BIOS is up to date and everything works fine with the pc2100.
KINGSTON RAM specific to my machine, sorry not at home so I can't give you the specific model number. KVR 100 something CL3 400MHZ pc3200.
If that is required I'll post later. Thanks for any advice or help.
