Question about IBM NetVista PC Desktop
I recently purchased (3) 512mb hd chips to upgrade my IBM nrtvista 6794 (k7u) which has the slots for ram. I've tried everything possible to get it to accept all three but it wont it upgrades to 1gb just fine but when i shut down and add the 3rd it hangs up and kicks to the set up utility screen. with no aveil. then shut it down and remove one stick and it does the same thing but comes up with a memory size error????? only way to fix is to shut down and install the original 256mb ram card then restart/shutdown/ install 2x 512mb and i'm fine.....???? I've looked all over the internet and can find nothing as far as answers plz help.........thx

It is OK to mix chip (SODIMM) capacities in the 2 slots in your notebook.
The best system performance will be when you have 2 x 512MB but for now if you install 1 x 512MB, you could even leave the old chip in the other slot, it'll be fine.
