My system is running an AMD 64 processor 3000 + and was orginally running on 512MB of ram. It is running on a socket 754 motherboard, so the ram is PC3200 DDR. I recently purchased a 1GB PC3200 stick of ram and after installing the ram, the computer started to randomly reset. I tried removing the old 512 stick, but it still reset. I removed the new 1GB stick and put the 512 stick back in and the computer is working properly again. Why is the computer resetting with this new stick of ram? Is this ram stick bad? The details of the new ram stick are as follows:
Elixir is the manufacturer
The old stick of ram is also PC3200 DDR, but not made by the same company. Also, the old stick says it is two bank. The new stick does not say 2 bank. Not sure if that matters or not.
