Hi all,
I am attempting to get this boat anchor to perform a tad better by upgrading the 64mb of pc133 168 pin sdram to the max that the mb will recognize by installing two 128mb sticks of pc133 168pin sdram. However, the mb won't recognize the new memory. I have managed to upgrade the OS using the 64mb that came with the system, but when adding even one stick of 128, it is not recognized. With both sticks of 128 installed, the machine won't even boot, at least nothing appears on the monitor. Is there a possiblility that the chip density is screwing me up here? And if so, how can I check this before ordering yet more memory. 16x64mb, would that be the chip density and what i need to ensure before ordering more? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

with the original 64mb chip installed. It will tell you the specs on the chip so you can get a precise match.
