hi i recently bought 2 1 gig memory modules. i checked the emachines (model#t5216) website and the specs say pc4200 ddr2
and it supports 400 mhz and 533 mhz speeds. i purchased new pny memory and in stalled and the computer
will not boot. i have checked bios when i have the old memory in it recognizes it but any combo with new
memory, only older is recognized and it show single channel with out a way to change to dual mode.
okay when i boot to win 7 and check for memory it shows the same as just
mentioned. but when i run CPU_Z it reports both modules it can see them (both old and new). ive been checking for bios upgrades
but im afraid of this area (i dont want to brick this computer) im not sure how to proceed. please if someone has
some time i would appreciate some help in proceeding to upgrade the memory and take advantage of the dual channel feature i assume it has.
i have yet to be able to figure out if the bios upgrades at the intel website for model# d102ggc2 intel motherboard are
the right ones to use.
emachines t5216
windows 7
dual core pentium d
2.66 mhz
thanks so much
