Conflict with PC2100 & PC3200 RAM
Posted on 2006-04-15
Is there a reason why I can not run PC 2100 & pc 3200 ram at the same time.
Here is the issue. I had 1 GB ( 2 512MB sticks of pc 2100 ram)
I added 2 GB ( 2 1 GB pc3200 ) ram. Everything booted up fine and life seemed good.
After a hour or so I launched BF2 to play. It loaded up ok , but right before the round started my pc just shut down and re-booted.
This happened twice. I then pulled out all the RAM and just put the 2 new 1 GB sticks in. Every thing is fine now, but I would really like to put the othe 1 GB in to have a total of 3 GB in the machine.
Can I do this with the ram I have.
Oh yeah a few other details. I have an ASUS 4p-800-e MOBO
2.8 GHz p4.
The board is supposed to support up to 4GB ram.
Thanks for your help
