i have three slots for memory.. the first bank has a 128 mb ram chip. i've just added 2 more that are 64 mb each. when i check the properties it is only adding up to 160 mb's. any ideas.

i'm thinking that each slot needs the same memory as the first bank. meaning 128 + 128 + 128??

it can't be 128 + 64 + 64 ??

thanks..

First thing I would do is confirm that the slots and memory are ok. Take the stick of 64 out of the third slot and boot to see what happens. If it adds up 128+64 to 192 then remove that 64 and try the other and see if it adds up correctly. Then I would try the 128 with a 64 in the third slot to see what you get.

If one 64 and the 128 do not add up correctly, the 64 is bad or not compatable with then 128.

If they work in one slot and not the other, one slot is probably bad. I had that on one board I had. I could only use the 1st and 3rd slots.
