At the minute, I'm running Win98 with 64MB of RAM on an Intel CeleronA 366MHz processor, an MSI mobo, with a Sound Blaster 5.1 Live and a Prophet 4500 graphics card. My HD has 4.0 GB, of which 28% is free, and I'm running FAT32.
I need more memory.
There are two slots for two sticks of memory (max 256MB).
There is a sticker on each stick saying PC66, and there are 144 gold pins on each stick.
My question is this:
Can I put in two 128MB 144 pin PC100 memory sticks, and have my pc still working? After searching hardware stores, and the web, I cant find anyone selling PC66's anymore. Someone told me I could use 100's, but the memory wouldnt run at 100, but rather 66. Is this feasable/correct?
My last post, I was enquiring bout memory upgrades. In the end I bought 2 128MB 144 pin SDRAM sticks, and installed them in my pc.
I have noticed a significant improvement, however, upon bootup, NVRAM says I have 512MB installed, Device Manager and DXDiag both report 512MB too.
My math aint great, but the two 128MB sticks, should add upp to 256MB shouldnt they? I bought the memory from PCWorld, and the geezer on the till said "hang on, that price cant be right", but ended up charging me around £39, which was what 2 128MB's would have cost.
Have I ended up with a great deal here?
(If it is a great deal and mistake by PCWorld, I bought the sticks from the Boston, Lincs store lol go get some!!!)
