Hello troublemaker...oopppssssss...sorry...HI COOLER!
Just tell me exactly the model of MB (because there are many K7S5A models - 1.1, 3.1, 3.1B, Pro, + and A2...so which is it? Next...tell me which BIOS do You have onboard (in case You flashed it or something)?
Let me know.....and I will check for You...btw...I already checked few things...
1. Your Elixir RAM is backward compatible with PC2100 (Lucky You
)...so it should work with Your Mobo ("She"
supports only PC1600 and PC2100 DDR DRAMs -200 and 266 Mhz modules)...but like I said...Your RAM will work at 266MHz..the only problem is the following...could You set CAS to 3 in Your BIOS(check under ADVANCED SETUP PAGE - SDR/DDR CAS LATENCY)? READ HERE
about problems with Elixir and ECS mobos (they said some ECS mobos dont support CAS 3, so check Yours! - I guess this is the only problem why the ram doesnt work...so if You may set CAS to 3...we will make it work 100%!
- check it out and let me know ASAP!)
2. Only 1 type of RAM (so remove those old SDRAMs in case You have them installed and trash them
)...and also 1GB is max for Your mobo!
3. Here are few more links with reviews of Your Mobo...in case You need to check something...NUMBER1
So I guess thats it for now...let me know about those questions above...and we will make it work somehow (or You could pack and sent those RAMs to me for 60€ in case they wont work for You)
Respond ASAP so we may continue...
EDITED : I also have exactly the same problems with flashing CD and DVD lights when upgrading to 1Gig...and also problems with Startup procedure....with accesing BIOS....with locking up...with recognizing only 512MB instead of 1Gb or RAM.....etc etc...and if I managed to fix that...i am 99% sure You can also!
