The machine would boot up fine but once in a while the computer just resets itself (crashes actually!) and reboots.
I took out the new memory module and it seems to be working fine.
I am not sure if the memoy module is bad or is it incompatible with the original 512M module. I am past the 30 day period unfortunately, so I cannot return the module or exchange it.
Is there a way to test the memory module?
How do I check for compatibility before I get a new module?
I have seen sites which go by the computer manufacturer and model number to suggest a memory from specific manufacturer that is guaranteed to work. Is there any credence to it? I was under the impression that as long as I matched the 333 MHz and PC2700 it should be fine. (The document does not indicate that I need ECC registred memory, and I dont think the installed original module is ECC)
Thanks for your help.
