I just bought a 256mb VDATA PC133 memory module for my computer so I can upgrade to Windows XP but when I inserted them my computer only reads it as being 128mb. The module is single sided and has 8 chips. The motherboard is a Jetway 911AF REV 1.11. I have the latest BIOS and am running Windows ME at the moment. Can someone please help!!!!!

obviously you need to get a 256meg double sided ram stick.

BTW the odds are the pc will max out at 512 meg ram.

edit: ned to get 16chips ram, ie not 8 chips double sided.

The motherboard with the memory problem is the Jetway one which is actually in my Grandparents computer, mine is the Soltek. Yeah the motherboard does max out at 512mb but I was going to have the 64mb (what was in there already) and the 256mb modules. Also I have looked for Double Sided modules and they are a lot more expensive than Single Sided does anyone know where to get them cheap.

That would be good but I don't think my Grandpops would agree, I'll ask him....
