I just baught a new 256MB module for an ageing system, an HP I-connect 1250. After installing the memory along with the original 64MB module the system booted fine but reported that there was still ony 64MB ram installed.

I removed the 64MB moduleand rebooted. the system failed to start and the screen never came on. there where however no unisual beeps.

After replacing the original module and checking the internet for infomation i discovered that this migh be a problem with density of the memory chips. The mdule i had had 8x32MB chips.

I was wondering if using a 16x16MB module will make any diference?

Howdy and welcome to G2G:

Need a little clarification here - an HP IConnect or a Packard Bell IConnect system??

wahhh. what am i saying... of course its a packard bell system. I dunno what i was looking at to come up with hp.

Oh and ive tested the memory in a different system, and its works fine so i know its a problem with the computer or a compatabilaty issue.

Suggest you return that piece of ram and go to www.crucial.com

Do a search for your system and they will tell you exactly what can be used..

Also, if you buy from them, it is guaranteed to work or your money back!!
