I have a 1gig Athlon on a Asus A7V motherboard. It has 3 dimms slots for up to 1.5 gig of memory. I currently have the first 2 dimms slots with PC-133 256MB sticks of ram. When I try to install a third stick of 256 ram for a total of 768 MB of ram I get a window come up that says( memory to low to run norton ) and the computer freezes up or everything slows down or I get the blue screen of death with numerous messages.I have 7 sticks of PC-133 256MB and have tried every configuration in every dimms slot and it does not help .It just wont allow me to install the third stick. I am stumped If you can help it would be greatly appreciated

After reviewing the specification for your A7V, it appears that you will need their updated driver to support your additional sticks of RAM The following is from their website:

The A7V is based on VIA KT133 chipset in ATX form factor for the latest support in AMD® ThunderbirdTM / DuronTM 550MHz ~ 1GHz processors Such new chipset is ASUS's first Socket A version to incorporate 200MHz FSB and 1.5GB PC133 / PC100 / VCM133 SDRAM capability in the x86 platforms This marvelous mainboard features support for Stepless Frequency Selection, a new technology which allows CPU frequency setting to be set in 1MHz-increments and also Ultra-Fast DMA/100 data transfer, and AGP Pro/4X, etc The additional upgrades provided include up to 7 USB ports and Promise® PCI-ATA100 controller for Ultra DMA/100 support.

If you have not updated your driver, I would suggest updating it at:

I hope this resolves your problem If you are still experiencing problems, please resubmit your question Good Luck.
