Trying to use 1 gig of memory on a tyan S1836DLUAN (dual 450 PII's)
running 3.0-RELEASE, keep having problems with the system freezing up,
rebooting, compiles failing due to signal 11's etc. If I decrease the
memory to 512 megs (I'm using those weird micron 256meg simms btw)
everything works fine. Tyan claims this motherboard can support up to
'1GB SPD SDRAM or SDRAM+ECC in addition to the new 100MHz
This motherboard uses the 440GX chipset, but another system with
a tyan S1832DL (440BX chipset) suffers from the same symptoms when
512 megs of ram are installed.
The problem is not with the motherboard. Most of the mother boards that
support SMP PII's have the same problem.
Just a quick point; if you're using an SMP board with only one CPU,
make sure that you've got the terminator card in the empty slot...
