Ok i have bought 2Gb PC2700 DDR Memory RAM DDR333 333MHz 128x8 2x 1GB UK.
before i bought the modules i sent the shop an e-mail with my motherboard details to see if it was compatible
Motherboard is a Asrock K7S41GX chipset 741gx.
When i recieved the modules i installed them both as normal, Thats when the problems started, my bios would only recognize
Slot 1 512 DDR 333MHz
Slot 2 512 DDR 333MHz
and in windows I had 1Gb. So i sent another mail saying i have a problem.
On the modules it states 128x64, but on my order form states 128x8 (not sure if thats the problem).any way
I then got mail back saying i must run my index finger and thumb along the gold contacts as there could be microdust on them, did NOT do as unsure,
they go on by saying install 1 module at a time.
But every time i did this Windows would just keep rebooting, But windows would boot normal if the both modules were installed.
I also checked my bios to see if it needed updating, my bios is P2.80 and the only 1 i can see on AsRock website is the 1 am running, so i guess i dont need the flash update.
As am not a computer wizard i need some help. So pls can any 1 help me regarding this matter pls
ive never known that buying DDR ram could be so stressfull
