Question about Computers & Internet
Ok so i've had 1gb (2 x 512mb) of ram for a while now and i've decided to upgrade it. I went online and did the research and found the ram and bought it. I got two 1gb sticks, I went to install them and my computer would boot up to the windows xp screen and after its done loading the screen went blank. So I took out all of my sticks and just put my new ram in (the 2 x 1gb) and the computer booted. Now the config of the ram goes green(ch1) purple(ch1) green(ch2) purple(ch2) in that order away from the cpu. I can fill up the first three, the two 1gb are in the green channels and one of my two 512mb sticks are in the first purple. My computer will boot perfectly like this. Once I put the last 512mb or any stick (because i've tried it with the 1gb too) the computer will not boot fully. I have a K8NGM2-H motherboard and says something about a north bridge setup not allowing 4gb if you use a 1gb stick in each slot, I did not think this would apply to 3gb when you fill up all of the slots.
If you could help me with this problem it would be appreciated!
