I friend was dismantling a machine and gave me a 128MB PC100 stick. I tried to put it in my machine but my computer wouldn't recognize the new RAM. There are 3 slots- if the new RAM was in slot 2, only the RAM in slot 1 would take. If the new RAM was in slot 3, only 1 & 2 would take. If the new Ram was in slot 1, well... you get the picture. Any ideas why this would happen? All the rest of my RAM is PC100 too.
