mix pc100 with pc133 memory

HP pavilion 7840 trigem-cognac mobo. ME. Calls for pc100 with 512 max. I have 256 pc133 computer recognizes and in my second slot I have 64mb pc100 which is not recognized. I've swapped the memory from one slot to the other with no change. Any suggestions?

A question first

Is the 64 meg module recognized when installed by itself? If yes, I must think your BIOS has determined the memory cannot coexit and has only configured the 256 meg when used together.

Yes it is recognized alone

by itself it is recognized. They want crazy money for memory now. I think I paid around $40 2 years ago for the 256. now the cost has almost doubled where i've priced them. I think its time to start building a system myself. Thanks from westfield, ma
