2524 DRAM upgrade

This might be a really dumb question and I would imagine it will have a really quick answer. I found an old 2524 sitting in our warehouse, it had 8mb DRAM and 8mb flash. I found a spare stick of 8mb flash and now I have the 2524 up to 16mb of flash. I would also like to upgrade the DRAM and that is where I am running into the problem.

Looking at this dram it appears to just be a 72pin SIMM. So I went back to our hardware department and they gave me a box of the old memory. I found a 16mb simm through it in and it wont boot past the first few lines of text.

I am thinking maybe you need to have somthing loaded on the SIMM first, but I could be wrong... Will this not be possible? Should I just lay this old dog to rest?

Let me know what you all think,

LR

Re: 2524 DRAM upgrade

It could be that the memory is bad. I buy my memory from the link below for my 2500's. They are not "Cisco Approved". They are Thrid party memory modules, but they work great. I have never had a problem with there memory. A 16MB memory module is only $7.99.
