I recently bought a 1GB stick of RAM, branded Simtec.
I tried installing it today but it was only recognised as a 32mb stick and won't boot up at all with my existing 256mb sticks of RAM.
All sticks are PC2700. My motherboard can take up to 2GB ram and either single or double sided. (Motherboard: MSI 845PE Max Series, Socket: 478, for Intel P4 processor)
I've tried upgrading my BIOS to version 4.0, but it still won't recognise the stick at a 1GB, and won't boot up with my old 256mb stick. I disabled quick boot to see if it would recognise it on start up, and still no.
I've also tested the stick in another machine and its recognised as a 1GB stick.
Any ideas/help would be appreciated.
