Hi everyone
I have just had a pc built for me the specs are as follows:

extreme kv2 939 motherboard
amd 64 athlon processor
400w jeantech power supply
maxtor 160 gb c drive
maxtor 200 gb d drive
geforce mx 4000 graphics card - (only basic as i need sound rather than graphics)
M-Audio 24/96 Digital Soundcard

i was using as memory:

2 x 256 ddr ram
which worked well but as i use this pc for mixing songs i needed more memory so i got

2 x 512 Corsair Platinum Twinx XMS3200 1gb(2x512) memory

but when i took the old memory out and replaced it with the corsair and turned the pc back on it keeps opening the windows screen then reboots, the motherboard booklet states this memory can be used.
Its driving me nut can any of you experts help.

thanks

Try going into bios and adjusting the speed and timing manually

Thanx for your reply

But Im not sure what you mean as the 2 x 256 i dont change anything, do i have to change speeds for the corsair memory 2 x 512 and hows this done?
and if its not done does it keep rebooting?

thanks
