    Packard Bell Legend Supreme 1700
    166 MHz Intel Pentium
    3.2 GB Hard Disk Drive
    16 MB EDO-RAM(upgradable to 128M)
    s/n Y131080538
    Bios: 1.00.11.DN0R 5/19/97
    Windows '95

    I purchased 2 64M Kits Memory(each kit is 2 32MSIMM EDO sticks per
    kit) for this specific make/model from laptomania. The machine is not
    seeing the memory at all, the display is blank and doesn't boot.
    Tried just inserting even just the first pair in bank 0 with no luck,
    and yes i ensured the memory was seated properly several times.
    Putting the old pair of memory into bank 0 and one set of the new in
    bank 1 the machine only sees 8 meg and hangs on boot up. I've
    contacted the manufacturer to verify the proper sticks were sent and
    he verified they were based on the P/N. I am currently awaiting a
    bios upgrade to see if that won't help and am returning the memory
    kits for testing of the chips although i hold low hopes that the
    problem is with the sticks as i think its odd that all 4 would be bad.
    Has anyone else upgraded one of these machines and if so is there
    some other configuration or setup that i am missing for the machine to
    see this new memory? Any suggestions is appreciated.
