  1. Hi,Again,

    I recently bought some new 1gb DDR PC3200 RAM 184 PIN, I already have 1 GB in there and wanted to upgrade it 2GB, My PC is still saying I only have 1 GB RAM, When I just added another 1GB to it, There is 2 blue slots and 2 White slots, I put the new ones in the White slots because the previous one was in the blue slots, Please Help :)

    It may be one of those boards that takes DDR or DDR2 RAM. In which case you can only use one or the other, not both. If you have 4 modules and 2 are DDR and 2 DDR2 then only one is going to work.
