The factory specs on the computer for RAM was 512mb, pc2700, 333mhz....upgradeable to 2gb. I recently upgraded to (4) Kingston RAM chips, each 512mb, pc2700, 333mhz. Right away, the computer started having problems with freezing up. I would be in the middle of a project, and the screen would freeze, then go black, then come back on, go black again, and then restart. It has done this repeatedly, so I finally took out the Kingston RAM and installed the original RAM. As soon as I did this, the problem stopped.
The only thing I can think of is that the Kingston RAM said it wasn't "dual channel compatible." The factory specs on my computer didn't specify if it was dual channel RAM. Could this be the problem? If not, then what would the correct RAM upgrade be?
