Been a while since I've logged in here, great to see a forum expansion for this type of stuff - espically since I know what OS and what Distro of that OS I plan to use on it.
Anyway, I have an old P1 Computer I got for almost free (plan on use as a 2nd/backup unit), and I needed to upgrade the RAM in the computer as it only had 12 MB EDO SIMM RAM installed.
Doing some online research on the motherboard in the computer (Elite TS54P AIO Rev: 1.3) and SIMM RAM, I determined that I should be able to load up to 128 MB of RAM on either 2 or 4 SIMM chips.
I got 2 64 MB EDO SIMM chips (128 MB total), inserted them correctly, and when booting up the computer, it only recognizes 32 MB. I've already tried moving the memory to the other set of memory slots, and there are no BIOS settings (Phoenix BIOS Version 4.04) relating to the amount of installed memory.
Any help/suggestions other than 'that computer is too old,' or 'you wasted your money, buy a new PC,' would be greatly appreciated. (Not that those that participate on this forum regularly are like that, I just want to get that clarified before someone says that.)
