Question about PC Chips MB PCCHIPS M863G V5.1C w/XP2400+ Motherboard
I have installed two identical Kingston 1GB DDR400 memory modules in my M863G (v5.1c) mobo. System only recognizes one of them thus I'm only getting 1 GB.
Others have suggested a BIOS upgrade may fix the problem but I can't find anything specific to this version (i.e. v5.1c is specifically indicated on the PCB - the "c" is actually a sticker!),
Might it simply be that the DDRs I'm trying to use are too fast (DDR400 vs. DDR333)?
I am using the PCCHIPS M863G v1.5a with 2 identical Kingston 1GB DDR400 memory modules and they are working fine. I also have another system with a PCCHIPS M863G v 5.1A motherboard and I will test the 2 Kingston modules to see If theyare both detected properly. Do both modules have the same chips on them. Many times the same manufacturer can use different brand chips on each module and that can sometimes cause an incompatibility between the 2. Maybe one of the modules Is bad.Test one at a time and switchem out.
