Info on my computer:
Ms XP, Amd athlon xp 2600, MSI KT&V-LSR motherboard, VIA VT8377 Apollo chipset, 1024 mb ram, AMI bios from 01/13/04.

I was having problems with the sticks, the old ones were CL3 and I needed CL2,5. I reset the BIOS defaults, I tried to flash but was unable. What am I missing. I put the sticks into the 2 slots, and I tried them individually and they both work, but together the system doe snot see them.

Any help?
