I recently added 128MB of RAM to bring the total to 256 on my 3 yr. old PII 300 machine. Now the sysem locks up randomly and sometimes won't load programs or even windows. The motherboard is a Biostar M6TLA which should support 512MB of RAM. Should I remove the extra memory or try and resolve the problem? Are there bios settings I need to change? What should I be checking for? ( using Windows 98 )

you need to check if the motherboard actually does support this much and/or type of ram. see if you can go to a place which will try out different types ram and get it to work, then buy.
i had to do this as buying first and having to return it is time consuming, also, my motherboard for some reason will not run the 256 meg ram like it says, and can't seem to add more than 256meg ram or it doesn't boot at all.
