Default Memory Problem GA-6BA

Hi!

I bought a SD-RAM PC133 with 256MB for my GA-6BA. But the Board says it

has
only 128 MB of RAM.
What could be the matter?

Thanks a lot
Axel


Could be a piece of lint/dirt in the socket or dirty contacts on the memory
module. Try a different slot. There should be 3 or 4.

New 256MB memory modules are made using 32MBx8 chips (usually single
sided 8 chip types) which are not compatible with the BX chipset or
earlier. You need modules made with 16MBx8 chips, that's 16 chips on
both sides of the DIMM module (for standard non-ECC types).
