(Yes this computer is freakin stone-age )
After installing both new sticks of memory, I get this blue screen of death every time before Windows bootup:
STOP: 0x000000a5 (0X00000002, 0x8209CB08, 0x82044C88, 0x00000004)
ACPI BIOS in this system is not fully compliant with the ACPI specification.
The BIOS in this system is not fully ACPI compliant.
Visit www.hardware-update.com for updated BIOS.
If unable to obtain updated BIOS or latest BIOS supplied by vendor not ACPI compliant, turn off ACPI mode during text mode setup. To do this, simply press the F7 key when you are prompted to install storage drivers. The system will not notify you that the F7 key was pressed - it will silently disable ACPI and allow you to continue your installation.
- Switching the memory to different slots
- Cleaning the contacts with a pencil eraser
- Cleaning the slots with compressed air
- Making sure the sticks are fully locked in
- Using just one new stick alone and with a stick of older/lesser memory (128MB)
- Updating my BIOS (none available for Win2k)
- Returning the memory in exchange for new sticks.
The only attempted solution that worked was when using ONE new stick alone or coupled with one old stick (128MB) in either slot. Windows booted up just fine that way and there were no errors. Ultimately this might have to do for me, and it's acceptable, however I would really love to get both NEW sticks installed and functioning (with Win2k). I don't like spending the money and having one extra stick of 256MB just lying around when even maximum RAM (512MB) is mind-numbingly slow enough nowadays!
So... I beg of the PC super-geniuses here- please help me!
