Gigabyte GA-7VRXP and Corsair XMS?

  1. Hi guys,
    Just got a new Gigabyte GA-7VRXP motherboard and tried to run it with 256meg Corsair XMS2700 DDR, but it is giving me major problems. Reformatted the h/d (Maxtor D740) but Windows 2000 would not install AT ALL (blue screen errors on every attempt), Windows 98SE did go on eventually but again it keeps crashing and locking up, can't install anything else (ie directx 8.1!)
    Any ideas? I feel it could be the memory or else the power supply (also have a Geforce 4 ti4400) which is a new 300watt model (supposed to be a good brand... but cant remember the name as Im now at work)

    Anyone know of any incompatibility issues here?
    Thanks for any comments

    A VERY frustrated Donk3.

    I did a search for your subject line (-the ?) and I got this:

    Gigabyte ga-7VRXP w/corsair 333mghrtz pc 2700

    Seems to have the same problem as you, but other people have it working. Also seems the GA-7VRXP has some RAM compatibility issues.
