I have Asus P4B533-E with 1.6 P4 NW.
I got 2x256Mb Samsung (single side with -TCC4 chips) DDR.
When I put both memory in mbd I have stability problems at any
FSB. With one stick everything works perfectly.
With my old 2x 256Mb Samsung DDR 2700 everyhinh works OK.
I tried with new 1011e bios (also with 1009e) but nothing.
Are there any workaround or bios option to help me ?

Hi. For the heck of it, go to msconfig or whatever you need to so you can get to the system.ini file. Once there, open up the [386enh] heading. See if you have a MaxPhysPage= line typed in there. If you do there should be some 5 digit hex number. If it is less than 30000, change it to 30000. If you do not have the line above, add it and put that figure in. MaxPhysPage=30000. It tells your computer to use 768mb of ram. Of course, computers have a mind of their own.
