RAM Compatibility problems
Posted on 2006-03-20
Recently i upgraded my system RAM to 1GB (512*2MB DIMM of DDR Ram 333 MHz). As soon as i upgraded i found out that my system is not behaving properly like (there was no display, the intel logo at the start up appers to be grabbed), i replaced them with the new DIMMS but again after few days the system started malfunctioning, so i got my older ram back into place which is 256 MB (128*2MB DIMM of DDR Ram 333 MHz) and now my system is working fine...I will list out my PC configuration
1. CPU - 1.70 GHz
2. 256 MB DDR RAM (the problem area :-(
3. Intel 845 GBV motherboard.
4. 40 GB HDD, DVD-Writer, FDD
I have checked all the docs related to my MBD (the doc says that my MBD supports 2 GB MAx RAM of DDR type) but i don't know why RAMs are misbehaving, its quite strange. Its been a month and I have replaced the new RAM thrice but to no use and i am quite sure the new RAM DIMMs don't have ne problems...
