Last week I came across two 512 mb PC133 kingston kvr133x64sc3l/512 ram-sticks. i thought it would be nice to upgrade my laptop with those. I replaced the two 256mb pc133 with the two 512. The computer did not wanna boot. after playing around, i managed to make it boot with a 512 and a 256 stick. However, ubuntu did not wanna get past the grub menu. teh same with XP. upon restoring to my original config, it worked fine.
I attached a zipped html generated with "sudo lshw -html > ~/Desktop/hardware.html"
It specifies that my motherboard could potentially pull 1 gig, yet it did not want to do that. Do i have a dammaged RAM, is it my computers fault, or am i doing something wrong.
any help would be appreciated.
