SDRam not working...any ideas?
Posted on 1998-12-30
I have a motherboard with the i430vx chipset, which supports both SIMMs and DIMMs. It uses an AWARD BIOS. My CPU is a p166.
I'm trying to replace my 48MB of EDO RAM with one 64MB DIMM.
I removed the old RAM, installed the DIMM (which is PC 100 compliant), and set the jumper on the motherboard to the 3.3v position.
However, when I boot with the DIMM in, my system just beeps. I had a similar problem with a DIMM when I tried once before, and am wondering if I'm missing some kind of jumper setting or BIOS setting or something. Or am I using the wrong kind of DIMM?
Any input on this would be appreciated greatly.
