Hey folks, just a quickie. A week or so ago I bought a Toshiba Satellite notebook PC and today I got my 1 GB ram stick however when I pull one of the 512 MB RAM sticks and put this one in the PC starts up normally (with normal screens) but when it goes to windows it's got this weird scrambled cable screen look to it. I took the new RAM out and put the old stick back in and it's fine.
So my question is what am I doing wrong? Does the RAM both have to be 1 GB sticks (or 2 GB sticks) and not 1 GB + 512 MB sticks - Does it have to be "even"? If they both have to be the same size that's fine, I just don't wanna buy another stick if that's not the problem. Is there any way to check this new RAM and see if it's maybe defective?
Thanks for any info you can pass along!
BTW: that USB flash key (for transfering files) you guys suggested in my last computer post is awesome - where've these been all my life? I'll probably never burn another CD Rom again!
