You cannot Mix memory with this platform, please try and clear the BIOS with just the new modules installed and see if it will pass http://www.memtest.org.


Sorry not that technical :-( what/how do you mean by the Bios? did u mean Flash the Bios, I have done that, I have worked out that the 667 will be faster than the 533 thats origionaly in the system but there is defenitly a problem with 1 of the new strips it will not let my computer turn on how ever the other strip will when i install them seperatly.


Thanks for your help
