Memory not recognized

Hello, I hope someone can help me. I have an old Quantex P2 333mhz computer with 96mb of ram in the form of 3 32mb modules. I need a total of 256mb and was wondering what kind of memory to use. I purchaced a 256mb stick of either pc100 or pc133 and installed it along side two of the 32mb modules. However, the computer only reads 64mb during boot up. When I removed both of the 32mb sticks and just booted up with the 256mb no memory was detected. What should I do?

  1. Head over to www.crucial.com and use their memory selector.

    Will take you to a page something like this:

    Memory has lifetime warranty, and a 30 day compatability guarantee. Not cheapest, but it is the best.
  2. The problem is you got shitty RAM. It's popular these days because it's cheap to make. Your board should support 256MB per DIMM if you use low density RAM, 16 chips (8 per side). Since this RAM works in ANY P2 (or newer) SDRAM BOARD, it should be common, but it's not because the high desity stuff is cheaper to make. Crucial sells it though, I recommend part number CT32M64S4D7E for all TX/LX/EX/BX/ZX chipset boards.
