On the Second Post Screen. I get this Flashing Warning "SPD not found at Dimms 2 and 4" My Computer is a 350mhz with 196 ram that i grabbed outta a 333mhz i picked up for parts. I took the ram outta the 333 and put in the 350 and ever sinse i've gotten this error. I've read a Little about it. but i don't got 4 dimm slots so i'm not sure what is going on... Any help?

you probably need to find out how much memory your motherboard supports and in what increments..... i think that is what is causing the error message....

I also found this:

Why does my computer display the "SPD not found at DIMM(s) #" error message?



This error message can be generated when you use PC-100 incompatible RAM chips. The system will give a warning message to remind you of the missing of SPD EEPROM even when the system operates without problems. In order to keep the system in top shape, we recommend using a fully PC-100 compatible RAM chips

The message is telling you that the EEPROM with the memory specifications is not present, so the system doesn't know what the RAM speed is. As long as you know you're not exceeding the specifications of the installed memory, you shouldn't have an issue.

is it possible that SPD problem is cuasing me to Lock up for no explainable reason?

Well, the error is telling you that the system can't verify the type of RAM you're putting in, so if it's not the proper speed, it could indeed cause lock-up problems.
