Specs: Windows XP Home SP 3/CPU 1700mhz Pentium Intel 4
I have upgraded a Medion MS-6385 version 1 motherboard with two pairs of KVR800X18/128 PC800 RIMM cards (total 512mb) as recommended by the manufacturer Kingston, however, the computer is only registering 10mb and is no quicker than before the upgrade from 2x64mhz. I have removed and replaced the button battery to clear the CMOS and entered the Bios searching for a way to change a setting without any success. Can anyone help with this problem and advise where a manual for this motherboard can be obtained. I have tried Medion but they cannot help without a PC serial number.

Thanks for information which I have followed, but unfortunately the motherboard is not in the original case and the only ID I have is printed on the circuit board. Worth a try. Cheers

Use magnifying glass to view pins on the motherboard socket. Might have been damaged.

Be sure you have the lower in first I think. Must be in pairs too.

"Best Practices", Event viewer, host file, perfmon, antivirus, anti-spyware, Live CD's, backups, are in my top 10

RDRAM is expensive...my guess is you paid over $100. That's a lot of cash to throw at an outdated system. Why did you buy 4 x 128MB rather than 2 x 256MB? That way you could have kept your 2 x 64MB & had a total of 640MB. Make sure the contacts on both the memory slots & the memory are clean. Try popping the RAM in & out a few times.
