Good morning fellow geeks...!
:mad:I am starting to get a little miffed about this so before the computer goes out the window i thought i'd ask some fellow geeks who are more superior than I. :(
I have bought this new stick of RAM. 1GB Pc2700 184PIN stick of RAM. I have plonked it into the computer along with the measly 512mb stick it had in there already of the same spec. When i turn the computer on, it registers the new RAM and says i have 1.5gb of RAM installed.
So it goes through the process of loading windows etc etc, then when it comes to actually loading the desktop it just doesn't load. IT occasionally comes up with the desktop but then it just turns off after about 5 seconds and then does the whole process all over again.
If i start the computer in SAFE mode the computer works fine. But if i try and do it in Last known good configuration then it does the same thing and doesn't bl***y work.
IF i take out the new stick of RAM and keep the original old stick in there it works fine.
So what is the problem? Does it mean that the stick of RAM is faulty or not? Cause i can see the RAM and it registers with the MOBO and BIOS to say that there is a new stick of RAM installed.
So any help would be good?
Thanks fellow edugeekers
