Scenic eD 1170 - Memory Upgrade Problem

Postby » Fri Jun 20, 2003 23:27

I currently have a 128Mb and 64Mb stick in my machine and everything works fine. I've got a 256Mb stick KFJ-SCE133/256 CE stick but whenever I put the stick in and start the system up, I get a beep then followed by two beeps over and over. It will not start. I know the memory is ok as I have tried it in another machine. I've tried it on it's own and with both the others one at a time.<P>Please help.

BX Chipset is _very_ picky about modern RAM, especially 256MB Modules. This should help:<BR> <A HREF="http://www.fujitsu-siemens.com/rl/peripherals/mainboards/ram.asp?Main=D1170" TARGET=_blank>http://www.fujitsu-siemens.com/rl/peripherals/mainboards/ram.asp?Main=D1170</A> <BR> <A HREF="http://homepage.hispeed.ch/rscheidegger/ram_bx_faq.html" TARGET=_blank>http://homepage.hispeed.ch/rscheidegger/ram_bx_faq.html</A> <P>
