I've currently got 128mb RAM installed and want to add more. I've got a spare slot and want to know if I can add 256mb to make 384mb or does it have to be 128mb to make 256mb's

Thanks in advance.

256 will be fine. :o)

Put the 256 in the first slot and the 128 in the second. j.

100% certain it will be okay on 384? :>)

101% :o)

As long as your motherboard accepts 256MB modules, some older motherboards don't. What motherboard are you using, knobler?

That's what I had for a couple of years before upgrading to 1Mb. j.

Depends a lot on the chipset on your motherboard - older boards may only accept "double-sided" RAM - and show a modern 256Mb module as 128Mb.

click here I was working from this info. and another post from knobler. Don't think his board is that old, but got me worried now. :o(

The board could be either way from what seems might be the age of it.

knobler - can you tell us what chipset is in your motherboard please?
