    Can anyone help. I recently upgraded my hard drive and CPU fan. I reinstalled windows XP and my memory went from 512 to 256 MB. I restarted and it was back up at 512 for a few days now it has gone down to 256 and has been like that for 3 days now.

    My system is

    Soltek 75drv4 board
    2 X 256 DDR mem
    AMD Athlon XP 2000+ with coolermaster aero 7 lite
    Maxtor 160 GB

    If any one has any ideas I'd be very grateful

    Reseat the memory.
     
  3. First off... try remember your name... then where you live...
    Yeah, what dreamliner said, take it out and put it back again?

    OK I'm not really an expert on this. Are you saying take the memory out and put it back in again???

    Yeah that is what they are saying, it is called reseting the memory. You might also try it in different slots.
