RAM not recognized, kind of?

Post by Divinejames » Tue Feb 05, 2019 5:59 am

trying to help a senior citizen with his PC dell optiplex 320 (running win 7 pro, so no OS support or specific drivers from dell website) slow af with 2x 512MB DDR2 sticks. (literally takes 5 minutes to load a webpage in chrome) updated BIOS to 1.1.12 (from 1.1.5)

bought Crucial 4GB Kit (2 x 2GB) DDR2-667 UDIMM (CT2KIT25664AA667)

for some reason, i can't get BOTH 2GB sticks to work at the same time. best i can get is 2.5GB and it now only takes 15-20 seconds to load the average webpage on chrome.

tried various combinations of which sticks are in which slots. (also tried empty slots)

what am i NOT doing right? what am i forgetting? what can i do to fix this problem?

CCleaner Happy Wheels VLC
