Re: Intermittent loss of video after memory upgrade
Will it run fine with one 256 stick? I would run it a day like that, then swap the 256 in it with the other 256 stick and run it over night again.
At this point if it runs fine with either one of the 256 sticks, I would put in 1 256 stick, and 1 128 stick. Run it again for a day/over night.
If it runs fine with 2x 128, 1x 256, 1x 256 & 1x 128, then it should run fine with 2x 256. I am going to wager that the 1x 256 and 1x 128 fails our test though.
I suspect it is limited to 256mb of ram, or 512 ram WITH a bios flash that you might be lacking.
