I run a Pentium III 450 MHz processor on a Jetway J7BXAS2 motherboard with 100 MHz frontside bus ( Award BIOS 1998 4.51PG). My problem is that I have 128 MB ECC RAM ( 2 modules of 64 MB Siemens 64 MB manufactured by Apacer) which is detected without a problem when I shutdown and restart my computer. However when I just restrart the computer without shutting it down first , a message about an ESCD update appears on the screen and only 64 MB of RAM is detected. A warm reboot (with the shift key pressed ) does not show any change in the amount of previously detected RAM. Earlier I used to run this same RAM with ECC disabled in the BIOS without a problem but now I can run it only in ECC mode otherwise on startup there are a series of continuous long beeps and the system does not boot. This problem started when one 64 MB module of the RAM was removed for testing a Intel 815 motherboard and then replaced.

Try removing both dimms again and replacing them.
The ESCD (extended system configuration data) message indicates that the bios is detecting a hardware change.
