ok, both modules work becuase with just one of either in the system and theres not an issue.

both are 1gb, but ones 2100 and the other is 2700 i think.

now when both are in, the system only sees 1 module, no matter which is in which slot.

what the heck am i doing wrong.

are they the same brand? could possibly be causing conflicts with each other due to the timings.

well, seems the bios for this piece of rubbish isnt great and doesnt give me many options for memory at all. so ive upped the freq to the max for the ram, pci and cpu. but still xp only says there 1gb...very odd.

i'd look at changing them out to identical sticks. Am sure its an issue due to different types so its only registering one.

might be an idea to ebay them both when you upgrade, as DDR is fetching a pretty good price.
