    Whenever i have encountered a problem like this , i have copied the full contents of the install cd to a folder on the hard drive that i created called winxp. Then booted from a floppy drive with smartdrv on it(important to use otherwise it will take a very very long time to copy files during the install process) Once booted from the floppy type c: then enter then type cd c:\winxp\i386 then type winnt.exe and press enter and setup will start, if you receive errors during install using this method then your hard drive OR the ram chips are to be main suspects

Installing two ram( ddr400 512mb and pc400 512mb )


If you are referring to computer RAM always put the largest ram module closest the CPU central processing unit


try to keep the same brand and type of ram the same ie: ddr ddr3.......
you will be able to read the ram type on the ram already inside


make sure you secure the ram modules by pressing the levers down firmly at both ends of of there sockets


make sure your computer is turned of before you attempt this
be sure to wear an earth strap before touching anything inside your computer
the ram modules sockets are located near your cpu


If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.


hope this helps you

Hi! I recently bought a MSI MS-6741 Motherboard and set it up with a AMD Sempron 3100+(754) and 1GB of DDR400 RAM (Kingston KVR ,CAS 3.0) and Installed Vista Ultimate on the 120GB P-ATA IDE drive attached...


The board does support up to 2GB DDR400 RAM (for more info on the board try here).

You might also find MSI's support site helpful (here is link to your specific board that has up to date BIOS and drivers).

As for why your system only sees 512MB of RAM, I am not entirely sure, you could try running 'dxdiag' (just type dxdiag into the 'run' utility), which should give you a more accurate reading of how much RAM you have available. Otherwise, certainly try the BIOS update. If you are still seeing only 512MB afterwards, I would certainly be questioning the reliability the board (if the RAM has tested fine on other systems).
