I have a Gateway 2100 desktop computer. It has 256 mb ram now, I bought Ram for it from the same place I buy my ram from.
Anyway, I ran a scan on Cruicial, this is the scan...http://www.crucial.com/store/mpartspecs.aspx?mtbpoid=D85F267EA5CA7304
I bought this.....PC3200 DDR 400 PC 3200 2700 2100 DDR RAM MEMORY
Anyway, I took out the 256 ram and put in the 1gb. I have changed out ram before and never had an issue.
This time when I put it in it said memory decrease. I thought that wasn't right so I took it back out and tried mine again.
I put the 1 gb back in, samething, so I went ahead and clicked continue, then I got a blue screen. Didn't read it all, but it said something about bad something, then said further about changing bios, etc. I have never had this happen and I have never had to change anything before.
The back of the new ram says tested ok, is it in fact ok or do I need to do something?
