I have a msi k7n2 delta 6570 atx motherboard

This board has 3 slots for ram....2 green slots and 1 purple
I have 1gb of ram in of the green slots

I just bought another stick of ram 1gb however the purple slot will not read it and the computer just reboots when I have it installed.

When I remove the 3rd stick it boots just fine.

Any help out there??....is this a ram voltage issue?

the 2 gigs runs the athelon 2600 just fine ...just thought Id speed things up a bit with that additional gig ...thanks aamikes

Main Memory

• Supports six memory banks using three 184-pin DDR DIMMs
• Support single channel PC3200/2700/2100/1600 DDR SDRAMs
• Supports both 64-bit and 128-bit DDR SDRAM
• Maximum memory size of 3GB
NOTE: nForce2 only NOT support x4 memory device. 1GB can be made by other density of dram chip such as x 8, x16.

x4 is high density ram normally used in servers, it's also the cheaper of the 2(high/low density) and a favorite of the eBay sellers.

Make sure it boots with only the new stick installed if not it's either a bad stick or high density.
