Mixing RAM size

Hi all,

I have 3 RAM slots on my mobo (Asus A7V8X) currently with 3 x 256 pc2100 modules in. Last night I removed one 256 and replaced it with a 512mb module thus giving me 1Gb 2 x 256 & 1 x 512 This seemed to make the PC unhappy crashing out of explorer and various other weired stuff but it did run various programmes & games.

The 512 is brand new and tested so no probs there. Is it a problem mixing RAM sizes???

CPU is an athlon 2.2+ running XP pro.


Cheers.

The 512 was in slot 3, I didn't try the 512 on its own.

FWIW, I'm running an A7V8X with one 512 stick and one 256 - both are PC2700 and the 512 is in slot 1 - and it works just fine. I believe that the bigger stick has to be in in slot 1 for it to work, though.

HTH,
