The problem now is I installed the new Memory and the computer just intermittently 'beeps', nothing would appear on screen at all. Tried both slots, still the same. So I then put the old 512Mb memory back, which got me back to where I am now, but I can't do a Windows repair as it will just crash.
Now what I suspect is that I have bought the wrong memory but the only thing looking at the spec that I may have got wrong is the one I bought is [/u]ECC Registered:
KVR266X72RC25/1GD 1GB 266MHz DDR ECC Registered CL2.5 DIMM Dual Rank, x8
Should I have a NON-ECC one?
I'm not sure what the make[u] his Motherboard is even though I found the pdf manual on-line 'L7VMM2' 462-pin.
Never hears of ecsusa and can't find it in any 'compatibilty listing in Kingston'?
The Mobo spec. states: Supports DDR upto 200/266MHz DDR SDRAM Memory module. Accommodates 2 unbuffered 2.5v 184-pin slots. Each slot supports upto 1GB with a total maximum capacity of 2GB.
Any help would be much appreciated.
