Question about MSI 845 PRO Motherboard
My PC does not work properly when upgraded to 512Mb x 3 sdram. It works ok on a single ram but not when 2 or 3 ram installed. It does not boot properly. XP & Ubuntu are reporting a kernel error message that is somewhat related to the memory address. My old pc is a P4 1.5G intel processor on msi 845pro mobo & ami flash bios running on xp pro & ubuntu. I need help with setup. Thanks.
You should check bios for the ram settings, voltage and speed, they will be printed on the package the ram came in.
also, you don't want to mix ram up, they will run at the slowest ones speed.
also, most ram is used in pairs (2 at a time) using the 3, depending on the motherboard will give you errors.
try entering the bios on boot, and set the ram setting properly. you should see something that flashes on boot, like press f8 or del for bios. change your ram settings, save and exit. type back with your motherboard and ram model numbers if this solution did not work.

Also, the motherboard will be having specific support for single and double sided rams... You need to check the motherboard manual to know that...
