the motherboar i have is the ecs k7s5a with the sis 735 chipset. it has both ddr and sdram slots on it. i tried 256mb pc2100 ddr mem but the motherboard doesnt boot or anything, i tried a 16mb sdram and it boots up and gives me the post, do i have to do something in the bios for it to accept the ddr mem? i hope i bought the right kind the motherboard said it accepts 200/266 mem 2.5v unbuffered non ecc something like that and i made sure thats what the memory was..
Bill Gates might be Richer but at least I can dress myself
Are you using generic ddram? What sucks about the k7s5a is that it only works with "high quality" parts. Try buying a name brand like crucial or corsair or something (there is a list of ddram manu. in the manual). Unfortunately, ECS didn't realize that buying high quality parts defeats the purpose of buying a value motherboard.
ECS is a fraud. They offer attractive features and very cheap price. At last the system built with ECS mobo don't remain inexpensive and the buyer gets nothing but headaches and at last, a sucking mobo in his system.
