Sent this to Gig to see if they would answer but as its so old guess they arenít bothered. If anyone could help I would be grateful.<?xml:namespace prefix = o ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:office" /><o:p></o:p>
Resurrecting an old PC (in <?xml:namespace prefix = st1 ns = "urn:schemas-microsoft-com:office:smarttags" /><st1:country-region w:st="on">Turkey</st1:country-region>) with some bits I had lying around in the <st1:country-region w:st="on"><st1:place w:st="on">UK</st1:place></st1:country-region> (all proved working bits, including the old PC I started from) <o:p></o:p>
Changed MB from 8S651MP-RZ to the GA-8IPE1000MK. Installed (in A & B channels) the 2x 1GB RAM which was previously tested in the 8S651MP-RZ setup, on power up MB alarmed. Removed the RAM and replaced with 256MB (333MHz) and everything OK.
So why wont it accept 2x 1GB which I know work from the previous MB, also tried them 1 GB at a time but still alarm.<o:p></o:p>
So in short, all is working fine with with 256Mb (333) Ram, but not 2 x 1 GB (333), MB specs say it takes up to 4 GB (in 4 slots), any ideas?
Please dont say buy a real PC cos its in the UK!

Many thanks for you help TIM<o:p></o:p>
Also put 2 x 512(333) borrowed from a freind in to try and it works.

Here a few other details<o:p></o:p>
MB: GA-8IPE1000MK M/B Rev : 1.0 BIOS Ver : F14
VGA Brand : Nvidia Model : fx5500 256MB
CPU Brand : Intel Model : Northwood Speed : 2.8
Operation System : Win eXP SP : 3
Memory Brand : Samsung DDR 2 x 1GB 333MHz (soon I hope) But 256 now fitted<o:p></o:p>

(2x 1GB RAM sticks - chip info Samsung K4H510438C-UCB3)
Power Supply: 450 W<o:p></o:p>
Thinking of ebaying a P4 HT 3.2 or 3.4 (800MHz) which would be better with faster RAM which I have back in UK (2x 512 DDR500), but wont be back to Uk until Feb so would like to try to get what I have working for now as its too slow on P4 2.8Gb (533) & 256Mb (333). Itís the RAM that is strangling it, but I donít want to buy some (seen the price of DDR RAM!) when I have so many bits lying around in the <st1:place w:st="on"><st1:country-region w:st="on">UK</st1:country-region></st1:place>.<o:p></o:p>
