Memory speed question on Dell Dimension 8200

 Bob -

I want to upgrade my Dell Dimension 8200 with the 2.26 P4 processor. I have 2 Gigs of PC-800-45 ns RDRAM and the machine halts with the message I need 40 ns sticks. Is there any work around so I can use the 2 gigs of 45NS.

Hi there,

Please give more information ,when you add both what happens?

Thanks for your quick reply.

The Dell Dimension 8200 boots fine with the 256 Mgs of 40ns memory. When I use the 1 Gig of 45ns memory from my old Dell OptiPlex the 8200 computer halts and displays a message that says I need 40 ns memory. Is there a jumper setting to change the wait state or clock speed so the slower memory sticks will work?

Again, thanks for your help.
