    Hi everyone,
    I have just bought some new 256MB DDR333 Infineon RAM to go with my other 256MB of Elixir RAM. My BIOS only sees one module though! They are both CL2.5 and DDR333 so I assumed they should be compatible.
    The BIOS is happy to see each module seperately when I take the other one out, but it won't see both of them at the same time.
    I have tried reseating them, but this doesn't help.

    Does anyone have any ideas? My mobo is an MSI KM4M-L (or 6734 if you prefer), and I am running the latest BIOS (1.6).

    Thanks,
    Andrew

    If you have more than two slots for memory some motherboards require that slots 0 and 2 be filled or 1 and 3.

    I only have 2 DDR slots. Could the mixing of manufacturers have caused this problem?

    I managed to fix the problem, although I do feel a bit silly...

    Turns out one of the DDR slots was just being difficult and required a good deal of force to properly insert the module. I got fed up, jammed it in good and hey presto! Looked like the mobo was about to snap though. Strange how it worked when there was only 1 module in the board at a time, as if to taunt me :)

    Thanks for trying to help, but in the end it was partly my own fault(!)
