Ok. I'm trying to upgrade a desktop machine to 2 Gb of memory. I bought 2 sticks of matched DDR PC3200 memory to match the MB requirements. The BIOS will see the memory, as Single Channel or Dual Channel, depending on where I place the second stick. Fine. That works. Booting to the OS doesn't. In any mode. I get a boot loop.
I've got the latest version of the BIOS and also latest version of the chipset drivers for the board, and I'm running SP3. I know that XP supports up to 4Gb in the 32-bit version of the OS.
I can boot the machine on one stick of the same memory (I'm on it now, just down a Gig of RAM)regardless of what slot it's in.
What am I missing?
Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly
Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
