Alright, I've installed memory before but nothing so complex for what I'm trying to do. This isn't really a Linux question but I will install Linux on this machine once I have it running.
I have an old computer that someone gave me and I'm trying to recycle it. I've found plenty of hardware lying around to use with it. Unfortunately, I haven't got as much infomation as I would like about it.
It came with a SDRAM PC100 64MB (single sided)
installed and I would like to add a SDRAM PC133 256MB (double sided)
to it. I've tracked down a few answers via Google and know that; 1) PC100 & PC133 can used together, although both will run at the PC100 speed. 2) Different sizes (MB) of SDRAM can be used together.
Here's the only infomation I've managed to find out about the system memory.
* Supports 2 memory banks using two 168-pin unbuffered DIMM
* Supports up to 2 double sided DIMMs at a clock speed of 100 MHz
* Supports a maximum memory size of 512 MB (128-bit technology) or 256 MB (64-bit technology) for SDRAM
* Supports only 3.3 V SDRAM DIMMs with gold-plated contacts
* ECC memory checking is not supported
So can any tell me if this would work together? I don't have much experience with this older memory. If you need any more infomation I'll try to supply it.
Huge thanks to anyone that replies.
