Hi,
I purchased 4 1GB DDR400 DIMMS and once installed I get a POST message indicating a memory mismatch and that DIMM 1 on Channel A should match that on Channel B, same for DIMM 0. I matched each DIMM and my bios reports them all as 1GB DDR 400's. I have updated the bios as well. Any ideas?

I presume you've made sure the cards are all secure in their slots.

if you have the latest bios already installed and that didn't help...
are you sure they are all matched sets...
did you buy them as matched sets or just 4 individual sticks...

Hi,
I have reseated them several times. They were purchased in pairs - one pair in slot 0 and one pair in slot 1 on each channel. I also removed the AGP Radeon 9600 after reading a possible conflict may occur (to no avail). Bios and all drivers are current. Interesting part is I do not always get the mismatched memory message.

They were purchased in pairs from the same supplier and they look the same :) I split the pairs between channel A & B slots 0 & 1. From my system info I get the following info:
J5G1 1024mb 266ns
J5G2, J5H1, and J5H2 are same.

Not sure what else to try though.
