Default cpu queston (desktop)

I bought this memory stick thinking it was a plug and play device. It does not work
http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...uctDescription

This is part of the description:

"Backward compatible Works with only PC2100

512MB PC2700 STICK (You can Put 2 in your Motherboard and make it DUAL CHANNEL)
Low Density Module"

I went to one website that scans cpu'* and tells you what you need to run faster.

any ways help would be appreciated.

Todd

unless the RAM stick is shot, it should be plug and play. Check the the maximum capacity your motherboard can handle, if you try to exceed the max it wont work. Other than that, take the stick you have in now, and go to best buy, they have a deal right now, 512 for twenty bucks

Some RAM does not always work in certain motherboards. What board are you running and what is the brand of the memory? If this is not the case then you have a dead stick.

Sounds like either the wrong memory for your system or you didnt snap it in well
