;) I have an Award motherboard 81DX, an Intel 1A30 rev 4 chipset, P4, running XP Pro with Firefox as my Browser. I was told that I could upgrade my sdram to 3gbs, so I got 1 1/2gbs(3-512mbs). When I insert all 3 modules, my system beeps steadily; when I remove one & replace it w/ an original module, the system will run & read the memory, but I get errors with Internet Explorer & i.e. will shut down. Any ideas of what my problem is? :tazz:

Is the memory rated at the proper speed for your system?

The guy that I bought it from, now says that the memory that he sent me is double density ddram; it was supposed to be 512mb, pc133, sdram, non parity. I now think that it is too fast for my system to keep up, but I have never had this problem before. What do you think? Thanks.

You recieved DDR RAM, but need SDRAM? And it still fit in the slots? Something's not right, but it doesn't sound like you have the correct memory for your system. :tazz:
