i have just reassembled my "old" Pentium II-450 for a friend to use.

The Motherboard is an Intel SE440BX-2 and is currently fitted with a 128mb
DIMM. I am not sure what speed it is, but would guess that with the age of
the motherboard it is PC100.

I have bought a 256MB DIMM of PC133 and installed this in addition to the
128MB. The bios reconginses the memory, and then displays an error - memory
error at offset 1B. If the system is then rebooted the memory install is
shown as 128MB (i.e the old DIMM)

If the new DIMM is installed by itself, the computer will not boot and the
BIOS does not beep or display anything on screen.

I suspected faulty RAM and have tried another DIMM (of the same make) with
the same results. I have not been able to test the ram in another PC as I
now use PC2100

Any ideas what it might be?
