Hey guys I am trying to set up a spare computer to muck around on. I've installed two sets of 256meg SD-RAM PC133 sticks into the motherboard which where previously in it but the computer won't boot past memory test in opening screan (won't boot up to stage where it detects hard drive, cd-rom etc...) Plus I can't get into bios when I press F1 key. But, when I put an old 64meg SD-RAM PC100 stick into the machine it loads fine? So i'm thinking my two memory sticks are faulty but I had the sticks in one of my clients computers not so long ago and they where working fine. I realised the sticks are most likely the problem but i've been storing them properly in cases. So my question is, can the boot problem be related to something else? or is it the memory?
Thanks for your help, much appreciated.
