I just installed 128MD SDRAM on an old compaq prescario with an AMD k6 processor. When the memory test runs, it only finds 48MB. I'm not quite sure what's wrong with it. It's the only stick in there (besides a COAST), so it's definitely finding it, just not the right amount.

Is that board meant to support that amount and type of RAM?

If the limit is not set as Savvy says then we will need more information to look up your Motherboard and see if it can handle more memory. Need to know Preserio model number and OS also would be nice.

I'm not at the house where the computer is, so I'll reply with the motherboard when I can (if i remember correctly, it was a thunderbird or something like that. I know it uses SDRAM, and I'm pretty sure it can use more than 48MB.

The V410e is the monitor designation I believe. See if there is another number associated with the tower.
