Memory upgrade

luminore

I want upgrade memory (existing is 128MB) in PIII 866MHz, to 256MB or more,
to install Windows XP.
Can I add 256MB module, so total will be 384MB(128+256)? Or I need use
256MB module only? Or 2 x 256=512MB?

thanks

The type of RAM and combination (and sometimes placement in the RAM
slots) depends on your motherboard. Look in the motherboard manual or
computer manual if you have an OEM machine (HP, Compaq, etc.). If you
don't have the manual, go to either the OEM's or motherboard mftr.'s
website and look up the requirements there.

256 PC 133 DIMMs are the max that can be used per slot on this board.
So what memory is suitable?

PC 133 DIMMs - 256MB max per slot. If you have two slots, this old m/b
can only handle two 256MB sticks (or less).

It looks like you can add a 256MB module. Stick one in there and find
out. If your machine doesn't like it, it will beep at you.

This is what Crucial suggest for your system..

256mb SDRAM, PC133 CL=3 Non-parity.. this is the largest memory module that
can be placed in any of your memory slots..your ChainTech motherboard has
three slots, and has a total capacity of 768mb..

128 + 128 = 256.. 128 + 256 = 384.. 128 + 128 +256 = 512.. 128 + 256 + 256 =
640..
