nammtar Posted December 22, 2005 Share Posted December 22, 2005 Hi there... Since I'm using VMware a lot lately, I wanted to upgrade my systems memory from 1GB to 2GB. At the moment, I have 2 DIMMs of 512MB: 2x Corsair ValueRAM VS512MB400 Since my motherboard is a MSI KT6Delta LSR, I only have 3 DIMM slots. So I bought a Corsair ValueRAM VS1GB400C3 and tried to add that to my system. When I tried that, my system would barely boot into Windows XP, before it spontaneously resetted. It kept doing this consistently after about 1-2 minutes. Since the 1GB DIMM is CAS3 I checked my BIOS. It was indeed wrong, so I manually set it to CAS3. But to no avail, the system kept resetting spontaneously. I then tries swapping the DIMMs, so the 1GB DIMM was in the first slot. No results, the system just kept on resetting. I suspect this is an issue with the 512MB DIMMs being CAS2.5 and the 1GB DIMM being CAS3. Is that right? And if so, how can I set it up so it will work? Or, if this can't be done, what 1GB DIMM should I buy instead? I would appreciate a quick response, since I have 8 days left to return the DIMM and buy another if that is what should be done :) Thanks in advance! Tim Jansma.
