Hi to all,

I have one old system. It was originally with Win Me with Pentium 3, 868 MHz. I upgraded to XP professional service pack 3, version 2002. I had only 256 MB SD ram PC133 and had two slot inside the motherboard.(128+128). I try to increase 512 mb of ram (256+256). It did't work. I shows on the bios that i have 512 MB of ram Slot 1: 256mb and slot2: 256mb. but problem is widows does not start. It boot up with massage that windows didn't start bcus of recent changes of hardware or software..if you don't know the reason please try....safe mode...normal mode...last knows good config....I try everything but it didn't start.

When I put 256mb+128mb it start and shows I have 384mb of ram and work ok.
But crucial.com info says that i could increase up to 512 or even 1G for xp.
BTW i am using all identical SD Ram Exam:Cl3,non-buffer, low density from Kingston.

Please Help me if I have to change the settings or so.(inside boot.ini or so on.
I would appreciate if some one here is knows like this kind of problem and being solved.

Thanks a lot. please guide me and even can email me at shipumtl@yahoo.com
