1GB per stick. I have two brands, US Modular and Corsair. My computer will run with one of either stick on DIMM1 with no problems. HOWEVER...if I put the other stick in DIMM2, the computer will not even post.

Any ideas? I am stumped. 1GB is good for what I do, but 2GB would/could be even better.

Thanks.

Only two DIMM slots on the motherboard?
If there are 4 you might try the RAM in slots 1 and 3 or 2 and 4.

IF that does not work, post the specs of the RAM, if they do not match that may be the problem. IE 1 stick is #CAS 2.5 and the other #CAS 3, or if the voltages are different, again that could be an issue.

give enough information to determine anything on voltage. My motherboard is a MSI K9MM-V, and I may need to make a voltage adjustment in the BIOS to make components run properly. BTW, I am new at this, so that last sentence is both a statement and a question. And yes, there are only two slots for memory on the mobo.

Thanks.

What about the RAM. DO you have any more information on them?

How about pictures of the sticks, with the model/ specs in the pics?
