I am hardware-phobic but I can do a few things like switch out ram.
Some years ago, I got some shiny new sticks to increase my ram to 8 gb.
They all seated well but nada. I switched some around several times.
Still nada. By this time, I'd had enough, packed it up and took it to my
local hardware guy. He removed them all all and basically did the above
procedure. Took a while to get them to play nice. Seems that only one
configuration of sticks in the 4 slots would work. Hardware . . .
grrrrrr . . .
