Sorry, could you expand on what you mean by pushing the on button? A little confused there :S
The most important thing when removing or installing memory is to unplug the unit & push the on button before you even open the case.
It doesn't take much of a shock to mess up a memory stick.
Sorry, I should have mentioned that the computer was working OK up until I installed the memory (from what I remembered).
According to the OP the CPU was havinging issues before the memory was installed.
Hm...but I would have thought that, while it might do something bad to the motherboard, it wouldn't kill the CPU like that. Unfortunately, I have no way of checking out the previous unit's motherboard, as it has now been donated somewhere.
As in, If it was ECC memory & the motherboard doesn't support ECC memory.
The only thing that threw me there is that it worked on another unit but the other unit may have a moptherboard that supports it.

Now that you mention it...I did have to replace the CMOS battery during that time...I guess it must've died at the same time?
A 1600+ runs at 10.5x133Mhz. 1.05Ghz would indicate bios settings of 10.5x100Mhz. Somewhere during all this swapping of parts, the bios was reset to defaults. This should only happen if jumper JP-1 is moved or the motherboard battery removed.
That stick of 512Mb memory have any numbers on it?
Are the chips the black rectangles on it? If so, I counted 8, meaning non ECC.
Count the total number of chips on a memory stick.
If the total is even it is non ECC
If the total is odd it is ECC
[The odd chip is for the Error Correcyion Code]
