hi guys can anyone help?? I've try to upgrade my ram from 2 x 256 to 2 x 512. Every time I switch on the pc with the new ram it runs slowy for about 5 mins then reboots and doesn't load. do i need to change a setting or something I've manage to get it to work with 1 x 256 and 1 x 512

According to the link that you gave the boards does support a maximum of 1GB of RAM - have you changed the setting for the voltage manually in the BIOS as 3.3V is quite high and I would have thought needed doing manually
