    ok, i have an issue here.

    the pc is a dell precision 210, 4 slots for memory, max of 512 mb of pc100 ecc sdram. with one stick of 128 mb pc100 ecc it works fine. add any more sticks and it gives blue screen parity errors upon booting into windows. the current memory is single-sided. the original memory (which was taken out and was only 128 mb) was single-sided. from what we can gather off of crucial.com, the manufacturer of the ram we have for it. we have the right ram. does anyone have any ideas? thank you. email me at [email protected] if you think of something.

    very urgent.

    laters!

    Hi volrathxp


    Dells tend to be fussy about memory. Sometimes only matched memory purchaced from dell will work correctly. Unfortunately I have also seem a problem similar to yours on a different dell precision system. Its problem was that any more than two sticks of ram caused errors. It turned out to be a bad motherboard. BOL

    hey we found out what it was. we took 512 mb of double-sided ecc pc100 and put it in and worked great. we are now sure it was the single-sided memory. thanks for the help though.

    laters!
