i just updated my bios on my abit kd7-raid to support my new processor amd xp 2600+ barton 333fsb...and my computer keeps giving me memory errors...i believe i have pc2100 ddr ram and thats like 266ddr, now its reading it as 333ddr when the computer boots up...do you think i need to contact abit to see whats up with that or do i need faster ram??? right now its settling down a lil bit, hasn't crashed my internet explorer in 5 mins...=) but b4 it was crashing it after i open and use it for a lil bit then it goes report error or dont send, also when i open other programs it gave me some exception errors i believe that has to do with the ram...well let me know what you guys think...thanks for all your help

Ypu're overclocking your RAM.

See if in the BIOS you can change the Memory so that it runs at 266(133)MHz instead of 333(166)Mhz. Just make sure its only for the RAM and not the entire FSB which will slow down the CPU. If no such option exists - > buy new RAM. Running it at 333Mhz will not work, and running it at 266Mhz affects performance.

i've been having the same problem today. my comp kept freezing after about 5 minutes after booting up. i am on an abit mobo. as Triple6 said the bandwidth for RAM on your mobo is probably 133Mhz. also, you may be having conflicts if you have different types of modules (ie bank 0 - 256mb 233mhz and bank 1 - 128 166mhz) i had a 256mb 100mhz in one bank and a 128mb 133mhz in the other bank. i took out the 128 module and now i'm back in action.
