View Full Version : shitendirt! I installed +512 MB

and it was like this:
Open PC (2 seconds)
put 512 MB ram into slot (10 seconds)
close PC (2 seconds)

booted PC, it worked.

What's this? My pre-previous PC was a stronger opponent. It took 15 minutes to open and close it. And things never worked. Took 5 days to install a new harddisk.

Now it's really terrible.
New TFT - no problem
New SB (USB) sound adapter - no problem

And it was cheap. And the effect is great.

Do you remember when installing expensive components took days and it didn't really work or the effect was just miserable?

Like my Terratec (aka Terrortech) sound card. 500 EUR (1000 DEM) for a "excellent high end" piece of shit. never got the right drivers and it was a ISA card. I threw it away after 2 years of frustrating attempts to get it running.

These new 'functional' components really take the soul out of hardware. They don't make things like they used to.

So how much Mb you use now? One time 512? Can you use 2x256 with one 512? I have three slots, with two 256 Mb used. Could I just put in another 512??

What did you pay for that anyway?

I would consult any documentation you can find about the motherboard. Third slots work in some situations and not in others. :)

I got 1x512MB (two sided) and 1x256 MB (one sided) on a MicroStar MS-6567V2 mainboard (Siemens-Fujitsu Scaleo 600), so I got 768 MB available. 512 MB Cost me 65 EUR at www.siggelkow.de. They got a webcam, you should watch it, maybe one day you'll see me buying components:

At the moment there is a read bearded small fat guy buying - ahhhm - He looks like an ADSL modem candidate (porn downloader)
