I bought some extra memory, and I am sure it is the correct type - Pc133 168 pin SDRAM. It will not seat in the slot easily - I have the cut-outs in the right places, but it will not go fully in. Am I being too gentle - should I give it a push? Any suggestions? Thanks
The main problem seems to be that the levers are not properly open. Cables can get in the way too. If the memory is not seated properly, it is usually because the levers haven't been closed properly. I think they should pull the chip into the correct position.
Note: Certain DIMM sockets have minor physical differences. If your module doesn't seem to fit do not force it into the socket. Instead contact the customer service department of the retailer or other outlet from where you bought the RAM. If your DIMM module will not fit into the slot it may be because you have an incompatible module. The notches are different for 3.3V, 5V, buffered, and unbuffered DIMM modules.
