Memory Upgrade Failure to ASUS A7V266-E

  1. Hi,

    I hope somebody can help me, cause i'm getting desperate! :monkey:

    To my ASUS A7V266-E (memory spec PC1600-PC2100) I have 2 x 128 mb DDR memory, and i have now tried 2 new memory (PC 2100 & PC 2700) upgrades without success.

    * The computer recognized the PC2700, but the programmes crashed and the computer restarted automaticly.
    * With the PC2100 the bios or windows wouldn't start at all!

    I tried to relocate the sticks, also the new ones alone, no difference.

    Can anyone give me an idea why i'm not able to upgrade my memory?

    thanks,
    Regards/ MÃ¥rten, Sweden.

    Visit the Crucial site and run their online test...this will tell you exactly which type of RAM that machine requires.

    Goose:
    I have just tried an upgrade on my ram with a couple of 333 ddr instead
    of 266 ddr. Now I cant seem to get Bank-1 and Bank-2 to work.
    I have put one 128k into Bank-3 and my machine works. But
    still not sure what has happened. I cant seem to get the other
    bank 1 and bank 2 to work.
    Any ideas

    Upgrading DDR Ram

    Hi Goose:
    My machine did the same thing started to boot and then
    reboot unable to load the OS.
    I think I spread the contacts on Bank 1 and 2 now I cant
    get a good connection. OOps
    Note: Dont wiggle your RAM stick after there inserted into the
    appropiate socket.
    Any suggestions on a good motherboard. Iam an AMD user.
    Thought I would try a duel core 64.
