It orig came with 128 ram.
We had 128+256 of ram in it. It was running Ok, but slow. Needed to up it to 512.
Bought another 256 to add to the other already installed 256. Both are pc100-222-620 chips.
Seated both chips and turned on pc. Didn't hear any audiable beeps at start up. Ckd & power was on.
Had system on for about 30secs and truned off power. Went to pull chips out and they were quit warm. Almost hot??
Put the orig one in by itself and tried to power on. Nothing. Had to pull power cord to reset. Tried power with back light on and as soon as I did the system safety tripped power again to OFF.
Tried second chip and got same results. With this not working I had both of the 256 chips out and tried the 128 by itself.
Reset power, turned it on and got no audiables again. System on for about 30 secs. Shut it OFF.
Pulled chip out and it was hot. Now I'm really confused. Please help with any comments or advice.
