hey all,
I just purchased a new stick of 512 MB PC133 ram, and I installed it and it works fine, but the problem Im having is the other stick of 256 MB that I had in their isn't being recognized anymore... I tried to switch them around to see if it was the slot but it still only recognizes the 512 MB stick and not the 256. Any idea or any help would be much appreciated... Thanks.

hrm... well assuming they ram was in there all the way not sure... what motherboard?

you might try just the 256 again to make sure your memory just isnt dead from a static shock type thing...
