Emachine T1100 memory problem

  1. My sister brought me her desktop and wanted me to reformat it. After reformating the hdd I desided to upgrade the memory from 128 to 384.
    The stick of 256 memory I got doesnt seem to work with her pc. I was wondering if this model emachine has something different than regular PC133 SDR DIMM?
    And if it does, what do I need to buy?

    The computer is a 1ghz machine so I think its well worth upgrading.
    Any ideas would be great, thanks!

    I think it is the RAM

    from what it looks like, your RAM stick might be bad? Is there any way to test it inot another machine?

    Those PCs need 168-pin PC133 SDRAM but with CL=2 (same as most older Dells).
    CL=2.5 or CL=3 won't work.

    Thanks for the reply.
    Now how can I find memory that is CL=2?
