Adding SDRAM Memory - Compaq Deskpro in reboot loop
Posted on 2003-11-13
I have a number of Compaq Deskpro EP/SB PC's with 128MB SDRAM.
I want to add memory to these desktops but each type of memory I have purchased makes the
computer reboot after the W2K Pro splash screen has appeared. This will then continually loop if I let it.
I have spoke to the supplier of the memory and they mentioned that I had purchased non-ECC memory and that this may be the problem.(Conflicting with ECC memory)
Firstly how do I check that the original memory in the machine is running ECC memory.
Secondly if the desktops are not running ECC memory what would be be causing the machine to reboot?
Any help would be very appreciated.
