Any help please, board K7VM2.20,1.53 AMD Athlon XP,at the moment i have 256MB DDR-SDRAM PC 2100 (133Mhz)on my computer, i am trying to install 256MB PC 3200 (400Mhz)but when i try the new memory the screen goes blank at start up, even when i try the new one by itself,can i change anything in the Bios to solve the problem.

Hi, you cannot mix different typs (Hz).

Will the machine boot up with the new chip only?

Is your mobo capable of supporting the faster memory?

No not even by itself

When i go into the bios the setting are Auto 200Mhz and 133Mhz i think

Doing a search for the mobo reveals that it only supports pc133mhz memory, so as far as that motherboard goes your new memory is useless.

Should the PC 3200 work (400) on its own?

PRobably as Technotiger suggests; the two can't be mixed in your particular situation.

Depends on the motherboard - seems not in your case.
