Today I've bought from one friend 32SDRAM PC100.This RAM has 4 chips on it, with the inscription: LGS GM72v661641CT7J 9909 AG5 KOREA
On the Ram is written 4Mx64/72 SDRAM
Before I've bought this RAM I had 32SDRAM PC100 SEITEC with 16 chips on it.
My new RAM isn't working at all.Doesn't appears anything on the screen and even I don't hear the beep, but my hdd works.I have tried with just this new RAM, but again, NOTHING.
I already applied the update to my BIOS.
04/30/98-537+UMC8670F-2A5LDH09C-00; Release 04/30/1998 S Tweak Version: V1.02 Big HDD support;
Please help me!

Thank you

That's a PC-Chips M537 motherboard. ajzchips is the PC-Chips expert. A quick look at his website shows there's no on-line manual, but I think you'll find that the chipset doesn't support high-density RAM chips llike you have on that new 32Mb.
