Default Help with Asus A7N8X Deluxe & Corsair XMS pc3200 C2

I need some help with my system. I bought a pair of 'CORSAIR XMS 512MB
64MX64 PC-3200C2PT' sticks to go with my A7N8X Deluxe 2.0 main board.
I have the sticks in banks 1 & 3 and am running in DDR mode for a
total of 1GB of RAM. One of my games - Battlefield 1942 Road To Rome
will not run, the screen goes black for about 2 seconds then it kicks
me straight back to the desktop. When I run only 1 stick, the game
works fine (does not matter which of my 2 sticks I use, or in which of
the 3 banks on the MB). Whenever I add the 2nd stick of ram, in any
combination of banks ( 1&3DDR, 2&3DDR, 1&2Single) Battlefield 1942
will not run. Here is some more info on my system.

Asus A7n8X Deluxe 2.0 w/ BIOS c1005
AMD Barton 2500+ w/ 333fsb
Windows ME - fully patched w/ DirectX 9a
Geforce 3 Ti200 w/ latest Nvidia Detonator Driver
NForce 2 also has the latest Nvidia Driver

Battlefield 1942 Road to Rome w/ Patch 1.4
Also have tried setting the games .con file for refresh rates from 0
to 1

Cpu Fsb 166
Multiplier 11.0
Ram Fsb 166
7-3-3-2 Latency Settings
Spread Spectrum off for Fsb and AGP

I have also tried running my cpu and ram at 200fsb with a cpu
multiplier of 9.5 and the same Latency settings above with the same
results.

Unusually, another game of mine ... Jedi Knight 2 Jedi Outcast will
run with both sticks of ram on the board in positions 1&3 and with the
standard settings for 166fsb.

Again, thanks for your help. The game works fine with just 1 of the
two sticks (doesn't matter which one) in any of the 3 banks, just when
I add the 2nd stick does it not work. Any ideas? Please help ...

"Latest Nvidia Driver".......from the Nvidia website. Version number?

Supposedly the Nvidia driver available on the disc that came with your
motherboard and/or the Asus website is the better version to use.

Seems Nvidia pulled the "latest" Nforce2 driver from their website about 2
months ago due to bugs......imagine that!

You need Windows XP, Windows 95/98/ME simply can't handle 1 Gig of
memory.
No point in disabling it to 512M to get it working, you have 1 Gig and I
presume you wish to use it all.

Cheer's
