I was lead to believe that the vectra vl400 could support 512MB of RAM in the form of two 256MB sticks. So I got two 256MB SDRAM PC133 32Mx64 Low Density sticks. When I set one in, it boots fine, and assumes 256MB memory. But if I set them both, the e-Buzzer gives a memory error code (long ringing beep, then 3 beeps).
Am I missing something here?

Any module double sided with an empty middle supporting the SPD method will run from any manufactor.
Double sided x16 DIMMS from PC-133 are also compatible with PC-100 and PC-66.
HP has tested early Vectra seris with ECC dimms even those PC don't support this feature, but at least x18DIMMS should work as well. I am not sure about this.
