Hello, I have a Gateway GT-5662 desktop computer running Windows 7. I have 3GB of RAM. 2- 1GB and 2- 512 MB. They are all Samsung
PC2-5300U-555-12-ZZ memory modules. I purchased two 1GB memory sticks to replace the two 512MB sticks so that I would have a total of
4 GB of Ram. The memory sticks I bought are Samsung PC2-5300U-555-12-E3. These sticks have 8 black modules on both sides and the ones
that I have installed have these 8 modules only on 1 side. When I replaced the two 512 memory sticks with the new ones, my computer would
freeze at the startup screen. I exchanged their places in the computer and it didn't solve the problem. It would not get past the startup screen.
I had to replace the 512 memory sticks to get the computer running again. Does the difference in the last 2 digits of the Samsung Ram sticks have anything to do with this problem?
