My question pertains to memory stick sizes.
I want to add memory to my Computer and
during the course of shopping for new memo-
ory I began to get differences of opinion as
to why one should not mix sizes. To this I
mean say a 1GB stick with a 512 MB stick.
Why and what can happen if one mixes 2
Depends on the type of memory your motherboard uses.
E.g., SDRAM must always match sizes, and must be either 2 or 4
I'm sorry, Relic I forget to add that my
MB uses DDR Dual Channel Memory
does this help?
Your Motherboard Manual should have a section on Memory Configurations.
All the DDR2 mboards I've seen can use:
A. a Single memory stick in any slot, or
B. two sticks in two like-coloured slots, or
C. four sticks in all four slots.
You can mix sizes with dual channel configurations, but the motherboard will only map dual-channel on the lower portion that exists in both (or all 4) slots. It maps single channel operation on all the rest.
When you install 4 2GB sticks, you motherboard probably won't see all of it.
When you install 4 1GB sticks, the OS may not see all of it.
This was very informative!

From The Word of God: And as Moses lifted up the serpent in
the wilderness, even so must the Son of Man be lifted up, that
whoever believes may in Him have eternal life." Therefore we
may, as many will to do so: "But as many as received Him, to
them He gave the right to become children of God, even to
those who believe in His name," (John 1:12)
