Question about Gateway 835GM (835GH) PC Desktop
I installed 2 new 1024 mb DDR2 memory modules in my computer in Slot O.
I tried to reinstall the 2 old 512 mb DDR2 memory modules in Slot 1. The computer then would not recognize the 2- 512 mb. memory modules.
If I switch the 2 - 512 mb in Slot 0 and the 2- 1024 mb in Slot 1, it will not recognize the 1024 mb memory.
Do all 4 memory modules have to be the same size in order for the computer to recognize them?
The memory is dual channel, so you have to use matched memory for it to work 1gig in each slot if possible, check the 1 gigs and 512's to see if they run at the same bus speed, if they are not matched there is your problem try a gig and a 512 in slot 0 to see if it picks the memory up, also there is sometimes an option in the bios to dissable dual mode
