After I installed more ram, the boot up does not reconise
it any more, now I'm stuck with 64 mb , is there any way
to fix boot up to see this?

I am curious what motherboard this is. If you only had 64 MB of system
memory, it may not be able to handle single sided memory chips or
whatever type of memory chip you put in there. Try taking out the old
memory chip, put the new one in the slot the old one was in and try
booting up.

Hi,

What kind of ram sticks and what is the brand and model of your mobo?
Have you updated the BIOS as well as the chipset drivers?

Hi Peter The mobo is a intel 86 K, PC 100, I don't
remember what sticks they are, they are still in the
machine, I look at the system device manager and didn't
see any drivers for this use,And no I didn't mess with the
bios Fearing a back lash from this old machine.plus I
don't know about messing with the bios.

It is absolutely essential that any new RAM module(s) be fully
compatible with both the motherboard and/or any other RAM module(s)
already in the system. Additionally, there are sometimes jumper
switches on older motherboards that need to be reset for new RAM
configurations. Consult your motherboard's manual or the
manufacturer's web site for specific instructions and compatibility
requirements.

If you cannot lay your hands upon the computer's manual and the
manufacturer doesn't provide a support web site, you can use these
utilities to help determine the correct type of RAM needed:

Also, Crucial Memory's web site (www.crucial.com) has a database
to help to find the right RAM for your specific make and model
computer and/or motherboard.
