Computer not recognizing all the memory?

Whenever I start up my computer, it does a manual count of the memory and it says:

201-memory error
164-memory size error
95 MB OK

So it's only recognizing 95MB of the total 128MB. I pulled out the memory piece and put it in the other slot but that didn't work so I'm guessing it's something software related. Any thoughts?

Bad stick of memory, most likely.

It's not running any software yet at the point when it's checking memory.

Does your computer have a video card, or onboard video? If you have onboard video, it can share your RAM for video.

Possible, but not likely. Sounds like a bad stick to me.

On another note, how do you do anything with only 128 MB of memory? My camera has more memory than that.

Mines friends pee cee did the same too. It can have a 256 meg pc 133, and i put my old one in there, and it was scanning the memory and stop at 201... and locked up. tryed different slots and nothing happened. It wasn't a bad stick either.

What pc is it and type of ram?

Some pc's are pickier than others. Also low price ram can be troublesome.

make sure your using ram that is supported by your board.
