Hello there.

My issue is as follows:   I have a PC with a MicroStar MS-6547 motherboard, and a Pentium 4 1.7 GHz processor.  The thing is that I bought a 256MB (DDR 184 pins)memory card, and put it in the 2nd slot, and the PC just starts, makes the memory revision, doesn't recognize the added memory and continues to get Windows running.  I already put the new memory card in the 1st slot and the old memory card in the second slot and got the same results, so that means that the new memory card is compatible or the correct type one.  I already tried just letting the first slot occupied by any of the cards, and runs fine.

Is there anything I cand do to fix this thing.  I already tried to clean up the slot with contact cleaner, but nothing seems to help.

It's suppossed that the motherboard can have up to 3GB RAM, so it's not a memory overload issue.
I will appreciate a lot your help.
