RE: Qube2 Ram Question

Thanks for all of the great replies.

I tried the qube2 with just the new stick of RAM. Sure enough it doesn't boot 
with just that.

I have emailed the supplier, who is sending me out a new stick to try. 
Hopefully that works!

Thanks again all.

Yeah, it will take 256 meg, this is mine:

Maybe you already know this, but you should try switching the sticks in their 
slots and trying only the new one, etc. Sometimes they just don't work well
