  1. Hi all. Just upgraded my ecs k7s5a and xp2200+ from 512 sdram to two 512 sticks of ddr. Only shows as 512mg thought. Ran AIDA32 and that shows 512 in the memory tab but 2 512 MB PC3200 DDR SDRAM in the SPD tab in the mobo section? anybody help? cheers

    What kind of memeory did you put in it? the ecs k7s5a only supports PC 1600 pr PC2100 ram.

    Thanks. Got it sorted today. my mate came round and suggested swapping the sticks round. tried it and it worked!!! And its 3200 ddr as well! From what i have gathered by reading up this board is very fussy with everything you plug into it. seems pot luck if stuff works. Thanks a lot anyway
