This is in regards to the P6IWP-FE v1.0f Motherboard.
I have a problem with Ram memory chips on this board. First, it came with a 64mb chip, so I bought a 128mb
chip to add to it. It recognised 191mb's which is normal.
I recently started running out of memory, so I bought a 512mb PC133 SDRAM DIMM chip. I know this motherboard only handles a max of 512mb's. (but I don't know of any combination, if any) because it has two slots.
So I took out the two chips and put the 512mb chip in and it only recognises only 128mb (127mb).
Then I put the 128mb chip back in but left the 512mb in the board just for an experiment.
Now it only recognises 191mb again. Which is wierd, because now it's only recognising 64mb's
off of one of those chips, either the 128 or the 512.
I have read the manual earlier and it said some 256mb chips maybe recognised as 128mb chips. Is it the same for 512mb chips? I realize (maybe) that the manual might have been printed before 512's were made. PC133 SDRAM DIMM chips I believe is the right kind to get for this board.
So what kind/size of chip should I get for this board so it will recognise what I put in it, because I need more memory. I want to put the max in it.
Can this board take a 512 chip and recognise it?
I tried contacting ECS (the manufacturer) but they will not contact me back. Need some help.
Thanks for any support you can give.
