I added a 1GB DDR PC2700 333Mhz chip to an existing 2 512MB DDR PC2700 333Mhz chips, but it is not being recognized by the computer. I have 3 slots and the 512MB chips are closest to the CPU. The Everest utility only shows 1GB of RAM, plug'n'play is enabled if that makes a difference. It feels and looks like the chip is well seated. All chips by the same company, PNY. The MB manual says 128MB to 1GB chip can be used in any combination and does not specify any order.
The computer seemed to work OK but when I booted up after super the boot stalled at the point you hit DElL to go to the setup screen. The date and time were incorrect and I had to change them.
Should I reseat the chip or maybe move the 1GB chip to the first slot?
