Just wanna know if u can combine a 512 Ram & a 256 Ram both 333.
I don`t see any reason why not.
Try it, and see what happens.
but it does not work when i insert my 2 ram in my board.
Mmm. What mobo do you have?
Are both sticks of ram compatible with your mobo?
I take it your system runs fine with just the 512MB stick of ram?
Here is a tip
If you are able to get the same type of RAM, you might be able to run it dual channel mode if your mother board supports it and it sure is less problems and errors
I have. xD it works fine.
My Board Is cheap its just an asus p4pe-x/te, both ram are compatible to my board and my comp runs fine with just a 512 ram inserted.
What happens if you try just the 256MB stick?
it works fine also. 256 is my old ram and 512 is the new 1.
yes, provided they are the same speed.
Generally you want to match ram with the same size, speed, and type.
Don't mix brands - it is prone to errors.
Sounds like a compatibility issue to me. Maybe your mobo is just very picky.
both are kingston brand.
Coz in my mobo's manual book i've found a page which tells about SS & DS thing, i think its the combination of the ram.
I can`t think of any other reason, unless of course you`ve got a bad dimm slot on your mobo??
can't understand this SS (Single Sided) & DS (Double Sided) thing what does it mean?

I hope this answers your question, and solves your ram problem as well.
Thx for it howard. :angel:
I assume you're referring to memory and not old 5.25 floppy discs!
