HP Pavillion 7840
Trigem motherboard i810E
Processor front side bus speed 133/100/66MHz
Originally came with 2 64Meg/100MHz Dimms

I tried to replace the 64M dimms with a single 256M/133Mhz SDRAM from Kingston. The board will not recognize the ram.
Could a BIOS update possibly help in this situation and does the processor front side bus speed indicate that I should be able to run the 133MHz SDRAM???

Please, any help would be appreciated.

According to the Intel i810e datasheet it will support double sided 256Mb DIMMs (128 Mbit technology) but not single sided (256Mbit technology). Can you get them swapped for DIMMS with 8 chips/side?
