    Well, I am a system builder, but this error kinda boggles me. haven't seen it before.
    I have a athlon 1.0GHz, Tyan s2390b motherboard, running win98se. I am currently using 512MB pc133, but also have 128mb pc133 and 256mb pc133 (all are micron brand). These are working sticks of memory. When I put in either or both of the smaller sticks (with the 512mb),windows does not boot properly. I always have to restart. The motherboard has no problems with it, just windows. Does anyone have a solution to this? Thanx in advance. :)
