Problems with memory?

I seem to have problems with my pII-266 and its memory. When I have a 32MB DIMM in DIMM Slot 1, it works fine, but when I add another 32MB DIMM in DIMM Slot 2, it crashes continuesly and I seem to get all kinds of weird errors. I thought about the speed of the DIMMs, but they are both 9ns, both the same brand and everything. I even tried to put in a different brand DIMM. I also put in the second DIMM in the first DIMM slot, and it worked fine .. so it seems my DIMM Slot 2 might be defective. Or does anyone else have anyhing to add to this?

Your Solution:

Put a 32 meg dim in the slot that you may think is defective.  If the computer gives problems, put the other dim in the same slot, if it still gives problems but they both work in the other slot, more than likely the connection from the dimslot to the motherboard is bad or loose.  

If you have access to another computer it would be wise to test it on another motherboard.

Good Luck
