Question about MSI K8MM-ILSR Motherboard
I try to install 2 X 1GB PC2700 184 PIN 333 MHZ DDR RAM on a K8MM-ILSR (MS-6741) motherboard http://www.msicomputer.com/product/p_spec.asp?model=K8MM-ILSR. With the new memory the computer is working but it became unstable (frozen screen, windows errors..) Do I have to change the bios setup? My old ddr RAM was 2 X 512MB PC3200 184 PIN 400 MHZ. I have flash the AMI BIOS to version 3.7.
I got a chance to check on that memory part number. Most of the sources that I ran across were outside of the USA (and there were very few of them). Was this memory purchased from an online vendor or over the counter at a brick and mortar store?
Here's the thing - I can't find any listings for this memory module on ebay which is odd because generally you can find anything by punching its part number into ebay and a lot of the time you get more detailed specs on the part thru ebay than you would thru a regular web search. I did determine that the specs you posted were pretty much right but I couldn't get any more advanced specs than what you provided.
You may want to source a diffrent module(s) for your unit using the specs I posted a link to before and going with the PC3200 mods. Just make sure you match the CL and voltage detailed for your machine.
I wish there was a better answer for you but if I can't verify the validity of the memory you're trying to use than I have to recommend going with a different module altogether.
Post back here with your progress on this, I'll be curious to see how it turns out.
