Is there equivalent to PC100 SDRAM?

  pcbobby 19:19 06 Feb 2006

I have acquired an old Compaq Deskpro. P3 and 650Mhz
The OS is 98SE.

It contained 128MB. PC100. SDRAM, I have used this stick on my ‘good’ PC (as it was compatible) to boost the RAM.

In the near future, I would like to install 256MB or more RAM in the Compaq, but I find that PC100 memory sticks are not very popular, and where it is obtainable, it is very expensive.

Is there such a thing as a compatible or equivalent memory stick for this PC?

Probably your best bet would be a computer fair and buy some second hand ram.

SDRam on Ebay click here. The PC 66/133 modules will be compatible too. G

If money is at an absolute premium i have two PC100 128Mb 168 pin modules gathering dust if ya want them you can have them, never likely to use them again,
send me your details via yellow envelope, cost to you "postage" cheap eh!! if they dont work what you gonna loose couple of quid......
please be advised this is a genuine offer cant see the point in keeping them if someone can put them to good use.......
