I tried to install: Kingston 128 MB PC133 SDRAM (KVR133X64C3/128), but I couldn't run any programs once I turned the computer on. Sometimes it said that the anti-virus had been turned off and when it didn't say that, whenever I clicked on a program (including internet) it would automatically restart. This is on a HP Pavilioin 7200 running on Windows ME. The max RAM capacity is 512 MB and without the RAM added it was 127 RAM. Any suggestions would be great!

You don't need dual channel RAM, right? In other words, you need two chips to get the effect?

I have absolutely no idea. The RAM I'm trying to add was left over from my dad's office when they upgraded all of their computers. My girlfriend's computer was running a little slow so I tried to add it.

Sounds like that computer doesn't like the new stick of memory you've given it. Or it's faulty.

Is there anything else I can try? Or is it just not going to work.
