So, I'm trying to use SDRAM in my Pentium MMX machine but I've been having problems. It doesn't matter if I use one or two sticks, this stuff still happens. Basically, no OS will never boot the first time if I leave the computer off for an hour or so. With Windows 95 I get either a hang at the boot logo or a Windows Protection Error and with XP I get a Pagefault in Nonpaged Area BSOD almost instantly, but if I reset the computer the OS will usually fully boot. I've had a little bit of other odd behavior every now and then like Frogger crashing out of nowhere one time, but this is the most noticeable problem and it's incredibly annoying. 72-pin SIMMs work perfectly (same mb amount, too) and I have none of these issues, but the performance is a bit worse, which is why I'd like to know what in the world is causing this problem. I've also tried running MemTest86+ and it found no issues with the SDRAM. Is there something potentially wrong with my BIOS settings? There's so many settings that I have no clue what they're supposed to be, like for example idk how I find out if I should set it to 70ns or 60ns...
