I have two different speeds of RAM, one is 1033, the other is 1333. I need to be able to use both and have them clocked to the same speed, either 1033 or 1333 is fine. I just need them to work. Any ideas? Bios is limited.

It should just work at the slowest common speed

I would have thought so as well, but it refuses to boot up with just the 1333 installed. It boots with both installed, but only recognizes the 1033 one.

Nope, the BIOS is as restricted as restricted can be.
