Hi, I am looking for some help in buying extra memory for my friends comp. It is a "Medion" computer, with a microstar LTD MS 6385 motherboard. It has a 1.7Ghz Pentium P4 processor (400fsb?), with 4 memory slots. Currently it has 128Mb of ram in one stick, with presumably (I have not opened case yet) a "dummy" stick to match it. I cannot find much useful info on this board so far, but have been told it is probably PC800 memory, and probably non ECC. The max memory for this board is 512Mb, ideally we would want to get 2 x 256 sticks, but I am not sure if it will only take 4 x 128Mb sticks or not. Can anyone help? I need confirmation of what memory sticks to buy (type/speed/parity?/ECC?) and also confirmation of how large a stick the board will take in each slot. Many thanks Farnz.
Fruitbat, Crucial do not sell rambus memory, I phoned them to check. That was my first port of call. They said it needs matched pairs to go in.
Chezdez, That is the info I found, but it is not that board? (that may be newer/upgraded board?) According to AIDA32/Belarc advisor, it can take a max 512Mb in 4 slots, and only has 128Mb in slot one. Slots are 184pin banks.
