    My computer was originally configured with two sticks of 128mb of DDRPC2100
    ram sticks for a total of 256mb.

    I wanrted to double my ram so I added a 256 mb stick of DDR PC2100 ram. The
    256mb stick went in bank 0 and the othe two in banks one and two. The ram
    was unstable, I began to get lock-ups and the blue screen of death. I
    tried rearranging the sticks in different banks, with no success. I even
    returned the DDR RAM and bought a different brand no improvement. I finally
    removed the ram from the third sim bank and stability returned to my system.
    Has anyone else had a similar problem and found a solution or is this last
    simm bank just flaky?

    With this ASUS A7S333 motherboard I am running an Athlon 1700+ with a
    Geoforce 3 Ti200 Graphic card An Aopen 350watt power supply a Soundblaster
    pci 128 soundcard using Windows XP Home edition With SP1
