ECC and non-ECC SDRAM

My MOBO supports ECC and non-ECC SDRAM (PC100).

Is it possible to have a mix of types installed?

I have tried with 1x256Mb of ECC mixed with 2x128Mb non-ECC and it doesn't seem to recognise this.
Depending in which slot I put the ECC it either loads with just the 256Mb or won't load at all.

Know that all the modules work as I have tried them all successfully standalone.

No board that I know of will work with 2 different types of memory ie sdram and ddr.etc.
If you know the motherboard make and model[or have the manual]get the manual it should tell you

Rayuk is corrct. ECC and Non ECC will not both run together on the samemobo.

Have a look at the Crucial Memory site click here for the background info.

Thanks guys.

Looked at MOBO manual at it states that it will accept both types but doent say about running them together.

Will use in a different machine.
