Hi all, I mode a post a few days ago about a HD boot problem.
Hard drive boot problem.
Well I believe I found the culprit. The manufacture says the mobo is compatible with pc2700 memory while the chip that was in it was a pc3200. Maybe thats why it was given to me for free, the guy stuck the wrong mem in and couldn't figure out why it wouldn't work. But what confuses me is at first it "started" to boot up ok, and I could get into bios, and in bios it said the memory was there. Is it "obviously" possible for the wrong memory chip to still be compatible enough to be recognized by bios? Will the wrong memory typically lock up on boot or will the system not even start up, or would it short out? Thanks.
