  1. List system specs

    What specific modules did you put in? Brand - Model No.

    What's your mobo? If it's from Dell / HP / etc., it's prone to have problems when you try to upgrade.
  2. It's a Dell XPS 400

    Intel pentium D 3.40gHz 4MB L2
    4 Gb 2x2
    Nivida geforce 240 GT
    1.5TB&160GB HDDs
    650 watt psu
  3. the ram is #1:kingstion 2GB ,#2:samsung 2GB and 1GB ,#3 i a hynix :P

    the numbers on the stickers say all the same thing:

    (1 or 2 GB)-(1 or 2)Rx8 PC2-6400U-666-12-(samsung says zz at end)

    i put it in as 2,1,2,1 everything else wont work
  4. never mind the board was limited to 4GB
