I have a gateway mx3230 laptop, fsb 400mhz ums motherboard w/vn800 chipset running windows xp and have the basic 256mb ram chip. I have purchased 2 other chips (pny and ultra)at 1gb each, which my cocumentation says is the max (1gb). neither chip will work. when i install either one the system will not boot. one chip is a variable speed and the other is a standard 533mhz. has anyone any suggestions?

Are you trying to use the new RAM with the old RAM?

Go to Crucial and see what is suggested for your laptop.

You need PC2-4200 memory.
I am not sure what type of memory you purchased.
