I've got a Dell 4600 with 256mb of RAM - clocked at 2.66mhz.
I bought 2 K-Byte 512mb PC3200 DDR DT chips (packaging says 3200/2700 PC400/333 184 Pin DIMM) and performed the upgrade. Everything went fine, except that now I've been getting thermal shutdowns.
So I went back and put in the original 128mb chips - everything works fine again - no thermal shutdowns.
Both fans (cpu and main unit) are working fine.
So my question is this: shouldn't these DIMMs work fine? Or do I need to get the 2700 or the 3200 directly (as opposed to one that handles both)?
I guess that's two questions - but any help greatly appreciated.
