    Ok so im here at my job as a Information Systems Manager Assistant trying to put some ram in a PC. I have a few sticks of ram i can put in it, but so far i have tried two different 512MB/133Mhz sticks and a 128MB/133Mhz stick. when i had both or just one of the 512's in, the mobo would give me 3 beeps. so i fiddled with it some more, and now i have the 128 in the first slot, and the two 512's in the 2nd and 3rd slot. But in the BIOS, it says the system has only 128MB ram, and that memory banks two and three are not 'Initialized'.
    What the hell does that mean? I want my two 512 sticks to work :mad:

    for some reason it seemed like it wouldnt work with over 512 ram in it. is this possible? currently there are two 256MB/133mhz ram sticks in it.
