Computer will not recognize 512 mb of RAM
I have an HP pavillion 7940 desktop, Pentium III, 1.00GHz. I installed 2 modules of Kingston KVR133Q, 168 pin DIMM. HP tech support says this machine can handle up to 512 mb, but when I installed it, the computer would not boot properly. Took one out and re-installed one of the original 128 sticks and it works fine.
SO, now my computer recognizes 384 mb of RAM but on start up I get an error message, hit F2 and start-up occurs normally.
I read about a guy who returned 2 separate times and finally got memory that worked.
Should I return one of the modules and get a fresh one?
