How can I tell whether the RAM I've got installed is PC100 or PC133?

Open the case and have a look for a sticker on the RAM stick.

I've got PC100 and PC133 installed together, no problems. They should work Ok together, but you can't guarantee you'll get no problems.

Powerless - Thanks. I have already had a look for some indication on the Ram, but there wasn't any. I'm just going to have a look at the link you posted.

bvw in bristol - That's why I'm checking what's in my PC; so that I can upgrade with the same type of RAM to limit the problems I have.

Unfortuately any software test may be fooled,and tell you waht speed they're running at, not what speed they are rated at.

Try downloading Sisoft Sandra. When installed it will tell you what type of RAM you have and a whole lot more.

Young Ranger - Thanks for the suggestion, I had already used Sandra, but couldn't find where it displayed the RAM speed (if it did).

Powerless - Thanks for the link. Worked perfectly.

DieSse - The software suggested by Powerless displayed the model number of the RAM, so that should ensure that it is displaying what speed it's rated at shouldn't it.

Sandra shows it on the motherboard screen and ram bandwidth screen. Aida, go to motherboard then SPD

  davidg_richmond 01:38 22 Jul 2003

assuming your board supports spd

Thanks. I'd found it on Aida.
