i have recently upgraded an old TIME machine i had at home, it only had 256k memory. i ran the crucial webite tool which checks how much RAM i can put in and which type it uses. IT says i can put in 2 1GB DIMMs RAM. i purchases 2 and when i put both sticks in windows will not boot. However it is showing in the BIOS as having 2gb of RAM. Windows boots fine with only 1 stick in (in either slots).
it could be, but maybe not you have to asked others with more knowledge on computers then me because i am in the middle of my first build and learning alot from this site.if your able to get in your bios your motherboard may still be good , when my motherboard died i couldn't even get into my bios. just asked around some more like i said, this is a great site for that.
