I recently posted a thread about poor performance (slowness and memory exceptions) with my system and Maya, where i asked what upgrade would give me better performance, and someone suggested another 256 of ram on top my existing 256 to total 512.
This sounded good and cheap, so ive bought another 256 stick, however when i put my new stick of 256 sdram my system won't recognize it??
It will only accept what was already there (256)
I've tried it in the other 2 slots (3 in total) but still it won't find it, its seated correctly in undamaged slots blown clean with canned air. The only difference in the ram is the manufacturers name.
Am i meant to change something in BIOS?? every1 so far has said just stick it in and fire it up, but it just won't register
any ideas or links would be much appreciated, heres me specs
