Motherboard memory expansion limit

  mrtreacle 16:43 04 Jan 2007


Having now discovered my Cybercom badged Medion pc has a Microstar 6701 motherboard which is also marked Medion MD5000 (guess its a board configured for Medion) i have some confusion as to how much memeory each of ther 2 slots supports
On the pc box packaging the blurb states 2 slots and then says max 1gb i am unsure as to whether this means 1gb total for 2 slots or 1gb max per slot
Has anyone any direct experience of this motherboard and its memory limits in slots please
All my efforts looking so far seem to indicate the slots should take 1gb each but i need confirmation really prior to ordering further memory
The Medion site is not helpful for this
Thanks in advance again for any help offered

Hi thns

Thanks but have done this already and the Crucial site actually lists the Microstar 6701 as having 3 slots not 2 thats how i know the Medion board is configured by Microstar specially for medion with only 2 slots
