    I have a MSI 6390 MB w/ 256 2100 speed DDR ram. I bought another chip of
    the same ram
    and installed the pc didn't recognize it. I returned and got another chip
    and had the same problem.
    I've tried running the new chip by itself and it worked fine. i tried
    swapping the slots for the chips and it still only recognizes 256. I
    downloaded software (everest home) and it detects the second chip in the 2nd
    dimm slot but also shows the computer as only running 256 megs. Ive went
    throught the mb manual and the motherboard is capable of having 2 gigs of
    ram. I then thot about updatingthe bios drives but skimmed thru the updates
    and none of the newer ones had a mention of a problem or fix if detecting
    ram.. Im hesitant to make that jump. Any ideas as to why my pc will not
    register the 2nd chip ?

    Thanks in advance.
