all the RAM sticks must be the same.
i recently bought 1GB of RAM to install in my PC. i wasn't noticing any difference in the system performance after installing. so i decided to check and verify that the PC was seeing the newly installed RAM. when i checked, it showed that the only installed RAM was the original 512mb.
i ran a few tests, one having just the new RAM stick installed and taking out the others. when the PC started, it just kept making a beeping noise and nothing came up on the monitor.
when i check the BIOS (i think that's what it is called)it shows the 2-256mb sticks installed but not the 1GB stick.
is this just a case of a bad RAM stick or is there a way i can fix it. (also, i already check to verify i have the correct type of RAM)
