    I have a 1.7 celeron with a m925 motherboard and antec 400 watt power ss running ME. I can only use one of the two ddr slots at 256. The other one causes crashes. Both slots work fine, both ddr's work fine. Just not together. They are crucial pc2100 ddr 256mb 266 mhz cl 2.5. I changed jumper jp1 to open 1-2, and short all j2a/b/c/d and j3a/b/c/d. any ideas?

    I would check your motherboard manufactor's website and usually they have a list of what types and brands of DDR memory will work with their products. Why you would need 512MB, espically DDR, on a Celeron processors makes me wonder anyway. But if you have to have it, go to www.google.com and search for the brand of your motherboard and go to the website. They may even tell you what brand will work if you are putting 2 in at a time. If they say a different brand, just Ebay the ones you have and buy the ones they say will work. Good LUCK! Hope I helped out some!
