When installing RAM in your computer you must always make sure that both RAM sticks have the same amount of memory If you have a 32MB SDRAM and a 64MB SDRAM installed in your computer I suggest you taking out the 32MB If one stick has 32 and the other 64 it will not work properly After a while your computer will crash If you only installed the 64MB RAM and uninstalled the 32MB then the error message could be coming from a misplaced Ram Stick Make sure that the RAMs are inserted fully into the memory slots.
