    I just purchased a kbyte 1 gb pc 3200/2700 ddr memory stick. It is an addition to two kingston pc2700 512k (pc 400/333). My motherboard is a abit be7-g. It has three memory slots. It read 1gb when I had the two 512k in the first two slots no problem. When I added the new 1gb in the third slot it would not recognize it. I put it in the first slot and the other two in slots 2 and 3. Now it only reads 1.50 gb. I have swapped the in all known configurations and it will still only read 1.5 . Ny hints?

    Thats an old board so may only see a certain amount of ram. Go to the abit site and look to see how much it supports and what size, not speed, since it is backward compatable, so that you could run pc4000 on a board that only supports pc3200, but it would run at the pc3200 speed.

    It supports 2 gig. does the "extra" 24 k (512+512) count against it?
