  1. Hi guys thanks all for your help for my last problem bout my mates comp we managed to correct the problem I am asking anyone here to help me I have a friend that asked a computer company to upgrade his memory and since then he is getting a memory error size message on opening screen. I opened the system and realised the technician has inserted a DDR333 256MB legend and a DDR400 256MB IBM would this cause it to read size error as aren't these two entirely different stick sizes? He is now having problems with his system dropping hard drives etc and reading probs should I remove the 333 and leave the 400 and see if this removes the size error prob?

    It may very well be a ram incompatibility problem, or maybe a bad ram stick.

    Test the ram as per the instructions in this thread HERE and see what the results are.

    Regards Howard :)
