I have finally located my problem but I still have a question. I just assembled a spare parts system...using p4m800 m4 and according to the users manual, it will tolerate 2 - 1 gig sticks. I put one in because I couldn't find the other matching one. My computer ran well for a while, and then after hours of virus checking - when it would run without hanging - I finally realized that I was using only one stick. I removed the stick and added 2 512 sticks and now it works fine.

Finally to my question: I can't find in the users manual where I have to change a jumper to allow for the increased memory; or if I have to use 2 sticks as opposed to one?
Thanks for feedback

There is no jumper to switch between one memory DIMM or two-the computer will automatically recognize it. If the single 1 gig stick isnt working, its likely because the stick is either defective or incompatible with the system.
