Specs: Windows XP Pro
Hello everybody,
I have Intel P4 CPU 3 GHz and Intel Board D865GBF with Radeon 9200 Pro Family AGP VGA 256MB
I'm running 2 Memory Rams (512 & 256) since 2004 the PC is perfectly running but I need an upgrade for rams
so I got 4 Kingston Memory each 1G KVR333X64c25/1G
take off the old and put the new in the 4 slots. and booted the PC with no success at all, later I took 3 slots and kept one, with same problem, nothing appeared at all, neither the screen nor the keyboard, as there is no Hard drive, so I took it off, and put back the 512 and I'm here writing you :)
so is my board can't read 1G in one slot? or this Memory version is 2.5V and my board can work only with 2.6V memory?
or shall I take off the Graphic Card and try again?
I would be grateful for any information...
thanks in advance, and sorry for my english :S

thanks Jolicloud, but in my country I was waiting to find such old Rams about 2 years lol
so I found those 4 rams and got them hopefully they will work, and if they won't then I don't have another option just to stick with the old one, until I can afford getting a new PC
but thx anyway!

Update:
well, my system work finally with the 4 Modules Kingston of 1GB each that I got (KVR333X64c25/1G) after I take off the VGA.
and as the VGA is important to work with many programs and without it many programs will not run, I decided to search for other Rams that are compatible for my old system.
I heard from Crucial.com that I must run DRR400 Modules instead of DRR333.
that's mean (2.6V instead of the faster one 2.5V) and (CL=3 instead of the faster one CL=2.5)
thanks for this website and thanks again for Jolicloud
