  1. I used Everest Home Edition to check some system specs and i think my ram is not running as fast as it should. I have 2 sticks (128 & 256) of ddr ram PC2100/266mhz. The 128mb stick came with my computer when i bought it in 2002 so i guess it's always been like this.

    Here's a screenshot of Everest Home Edition showing my specs.

    If anyone can help me out i'd really appreciate it. If it is running slower than it should, how do i make it run at 266mhz?

    BTW, my motherboard is an Intel Pendleton D845PT if it's needed.

    Please help, would be appreciated, thanks.

    Your ram is running at the correct speed, nothing to worry about. The effective rate is what the ram companies advertise their ram at, and your's is 266Mhz. The "real rate" of 133Mhz is doubled (DDR ram is double data rate).
