I bought 1 GB of SDRAM for my old computer.

Previouse configuration:
Atlhon 2200+ with 256 MB of RAM

The maximum admissible for the board is 1GB.

Now I have a problem, I installed the memory then I start the computer everything goes right but then after 5 min working the computer freeze ant I can't do nothing.

If I reduce the frequency to 1500+ the computer works perfectly.

Can somebody help me to work with 2200.

Thanks in advance.

Is it two sticks of 512mb, or a single stick of 1gb? If the board only supports a max of 1gb, then that means 1gb divided by how many slots it has. If it has two slots, you can only put a max of 512mb in each slot.

Also, maybe the voltage on the ram is too low. Do you know the voltage it's running at? I wouldn't recommend adjusting it yourself unless you are sure of what you're doing. Raising the voltage too high may cause damage to components.

You can also try running memtest: memtest86.com . Download and burn the iso as a disc image onto a cd. Then restart your computer and have it boot off the disc. Let it run for a few hours and see if it finds any errors with your memory.

What is the total number of chips on a memory stick ?
If you count the number of chis & it is a odd number it is ECC memory & will not work correctly.


Right above the motherboard battery is a jumper JP4 that is used to clear the CMOS.
Unplug the comuter
Open the case
Move the jumper to pins 1-2 [clear CMOS]
Wait a minute
Move the jumper back to 2-3
Plug the computer in & start it

You will have to go to in to the BIOS & set the time/date
When that is done go to Exit
Load the defaults & exit the BIOS setup .
