New memory installation

At the moment Ive put a new stick of 512Mb pc 133 in slot 1 of my motherboard. Originally there was a stick of 256Mb in slot 1 but I have put that into slot 2. But when I boot up it only picks up the 512Mb stick in slot 1. This means that i would presume that slot 2 is disabled, how can I enable it? I have looked in the bios and in the motherboard manual and I cannot find anything on it.



Thankyou for your help.

It could be that your system is only capable of having 512mb of memory.......You should be able to find out this info from your system handbook

Check to see if your board can take all that memory, Neo_0147

Yeh it's not an old computer. Dunno why it isn't detecting it in slot 2. Is there anyway it can be a jumper on the motherboard?

Have you tried putting one of the memory modules in slot 2 to see if the machine boots up. A lot of the time its trial and error with memory

No, I will try and then get back to you.
