Memory Upgarde Problem

  rickimalone 21:31 17 Apr 2004

Hi, I'm having problems upgrading my mother in-laws quite old PC. The machine is having an upgrade of RAM to enable it to support a broad band connection.

The problem i'm having is working out exactly what RAM I need for it.
Every tool used to identify RAM has failed tool give me the speed of the RAM. I have managed to obtain the following info.

OS: Windows 98se

Chipset: SiS SiS630 CPU to PCI Bridge

FSB: 66.8MHZ

Memory: 32mb (Single Bank) Dimm,sdram

Processor: Crix 3 400mhz 0.18m Socket 376

In the mainboard manual it states that the board can support PC66,PC100,PC133.
Given that the FSB is 66mhz my first thought was to go for PC66 however if im right can I just get PC100 or PC133 and run it as it is easier to get hold of???

Any help will be much appreciated as this has been a nightmare so far.

If you go to click here and enter the 'puter's details it will tell you what is suitable.

In my experience they are an excellent company, and if you can't find out using the selector, their e-mail support is second to none.

Tried it but no good, the computer was built for her by a friend a few years back of bits and bobs from here and there....
