PC will not recognise new memory

  Beas-Knees 20:56 02 Sep 06

I am trying to upgrade a PC for a friend by installing extra memory, It is an e.machines 350 and according to crucial it will take up to 512mb so i ordered a new 256MB module from them to go alongside the 128mb already installed but it will not recognise it, I have tried all different types of configuration without joy and I have also tried the new module in other PC.s and it works no problem, Does anyone know of any settings that may need changing, Thanks

Have you checked the mobo manual to make sure that you put the memory in the right slot?

PS watch when the PC boots up to see if the bios sees the extra memory

Tried it in both slots, no joy

The 128 should go in the no 0 or 1 slot whatever is the first slot and the new memory in next slot to it

How many memory slots does it have ? Maybe it only wants to take 4 128mb sticks....

128 is in slot 0, 256 in next slot, only recognising 128

Only 2 slots

Maybe the mobo will only accept 2 identical sized memories, check the manual or if lost download from mobo mfr site

Maybe so but if that were the case it should still recognise the 256 if i put that in slot 0 by itself but it doesn't

I would just try with 256 it's better than 128
