I upgraded my CPU, and it will only run with one of my three different memory sticks. The previous CPU ran with (and loaded) all three sticks. So I guess I have to buy some new sticks(?), however - I'm a bit confused on what to buy since two of the sticks have the same specs, but as stated only one works.
Works with (Hynix 2gb): http://www.hynix.com/datasheet/eng/module/details/module_20_HMT125U6TFR8C.jsp (Part number H9)
Does not work with (Kingston 2gb): http://www.electrobyt.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=622#.VpEOclLlnyE
Does not work with (ADATA 4gb): http://www.wermlandsdata.se/catalog/product_info.php?cPath=632_110_509_706&products_id=193989
I've tried running the new CPU with all sorts of combinations, one by one and different dimm slots - the only memory that works is the Hynix, and it doesn't matter what dimm slot I put it in.
The old CPU worked with all 3 simultaneously and one by one.
Old CPU (E5500, 2-MB cache, 2.80 GHz): http://ark.intel.com/sv/products/42800/Intel-Pentium-Processor-E5500-2M-Cache-2_80-GHz-800-MHz-FSB
New CPU (Q8400, 4-MB cache, 2.66 GHz): http://ark.intel.com/sv/products/38512/Intel-Core2-Quad-Processor-Q8400-4M-Cache-2_66-GHz-1333-MHz-FSB
Computer Model (HP Pro 3120 MT): http://www.manualslib.com/manual/435619/Hp-Pro-3120-Minitower-Pc.html?page=2#manual
I can see how the ADATA memory wouldn't work since it has a different clock freq than the Hynix. But how come the new CPU runs with Hynix but not the Kingston memory? And what kind of memory do I need to buy?
Thanks in advance!
