My question is can I do anything to get the bios to accept 3x512, or can I in the bios turn the memory speed down to PC2700 (DDR333) as it supports max 2gb! If I do this will the 1536 @ 2700 be faster than 1024 @ 3200?
I thought you answered your own question there. If your manual says it supports 1gb and your trying to put in 1.5gbs thats why its not working. But then you say support says it can run 2gbs? Well which is it? If it truly is 1gb then it won't run 1.5gbs. If it is 2gbs maybe it was a bios update have you updated your bios? If the board only supports PC2700 your PC3200 should revert to PC2700 and run.
Boards are picky about the ram make sure you have memory certified to run on that motherboard.
Dude your post keeps confusing me also its really confusing me man. You had 2 sticks of memory at 512megs each = 1gb then you bought another 512megs? But if you take a old 512 meg memory module out and put the new 512 in it works? Did I get it right. If so that would lead me to believe supports full of it and it only runs 1gb of memory.
