Question about MSI KM4M-L Motherboard
My motherboard is an MSI KM4M-V, and should be able to accommodate 512MB of RAM.0 DDR RAM (DDR-333). It has motherboard has two slots for memory cards. One slot is currently empty, while the other has a 512 MB PC2700 DDR333 with a chip configuration of 64x64….the memory that came with the computer. To increase my memory, I recently decided to buy another 512 MB PC2700 DDR333 memory stick/card with the 64x64 chip configuration. This new stick/card works by itself (i.e., when I remove my existing memory stick/card), but it will not work in conjunction with the existing stick/card. In other words, the two don't work together, but each works on its own.
At that point, I started thinking that I'd simply buy a 1024MB stick/card. I was thinking that maybe the two 512MB sticks/cards won't work together for some strange reason, so I'll just buy a single 1024MB card. The 1024MB card, also, did not work. This lead me to think that the motherboard, which is rated to handle 2GB of memory, will for some reason only accommodate 512MB. I took the computer back to the place that put it together for me three years ago. They were stumped. As far as they were concerned, the motherboard was doing something it shouldn't be doing. I've done some investigating and have determined that I may need to toggle with the bios (memory voltage and/or memory timing). Anyone have suggestions on what may be the problem and what I can do to fix it?
