I could use a bit of advice. My wife's machine has a ASrock K7S8X v3 mobo, and it was using 512Mb PC2100 DDR SDRAM. Emblazoned across the motherboard is DDR400. anyway, we decided to purchase a memory upgrade and after a bit of research, I found out that this motherboard is capable of supporting 1Gb of PC3200 DDR400. So we purchased 2 sticks of 512Mb PC3200 DDR400, which the seller too said would work.
Ok, time came to insert the memory. I made fully sure it was firmly in, and of course I get the bleeping. First thing I do is check its in correctly. Then I check it with only one stick at a time, but it bleeps everytime. Now, I want to know for sure, can this mobo support 2x512 PC3200 DDR400 (i.e. I haven't just wasted my money) or is this memory likely to be bad?
many thanks for your time and advice.
