i just put in a new stick of 512mb ram and it seemed to detect it alright unlike last time when i put in a new stick of 512 it didn't detect it. however now teh comp restarts every 10 minutes or so. i did a memory test (windows one) and it fails a whole bunch of tests. does it mean it's a bad stick? or does that mean it is incomptat? after the memory test i get hte error
STOP:0x0000007B (0XF795F640,0x0000034,0x00000000,0x00000000) what do i dooooooooo

i've currently changed back to my sitkc of 256 while i try and figure out this problem... xp has given me so many headaches

usually 7b is a disk error, and the parameter 0x0000034 is usually a good indicator of a drive incompatability...given the coinicdence, though, I think it's a safe bet that the RAM is the culprit

bad for you...not sure what you want...

Some motherboards are more finicky then others....if you want to try it in another board, go ahead, but you are not getting it to work in yours.

Is it on your motherboards "good memory list"?

If the ram is on the mobo manufacturers list as approved and you get error messages, take it back if you want.
