After successfull installation increasing RAM to 4G causes reboot
Hi all

I've managed to successfully install Vista Home Premium using 2G of RAM.
The problem now is that when I add another 2G the system blue screens and
reboots.

Any idea how to fix ?

many thanks, Kevin.

Sounds like your new memory is faulty or not compatible with your system.

Richard - don't believe its a memory issue. Have tried various combination.
Can always boot when I have anything up to 3Gb (have only just tested this).
Adding the final 1Gb causes the problem.

Then I'd bet the motherboard won't handle it. Vista will - I know. :-)
