You’d think that adding memory to a PC would be straight forward.
- Power Off
- Open the case
- Pop out the old memory
- Insert New
- Close the case
- Power on
And Bob’s your uncle.
But – it never turns out that way!
I figured I’d upgrade my 4 year old MSI mobos with some more memory,,, and for one – it won’t blasted detect both DIMMS now ( and yes I did check the MOBO manual which says you have to use DIMM slot 1&3 or 2 & 4 if you are not populating all DIMMs).
The other – bought at about the same time – I thought could take the one old DIMM add a new one and double it’s memory too – well I would never have guessed that it was using DDR not DDR2 like the other board.
At some point I’ll have to figure out what to do with:
a) why the PC won’t detect both DIMMS
b) what to do with 2 1 GB DDR2 DIMMS – I could try it in this MOBO – but if it won’t detect 2 DIMMS why would it work with 4?
