Memory upgrading

  1. This may seem like a stupid question, but is it possible to put PC100 SDRAM memory in a system that uses PC2100 DDR SDRAM or PC3200 DDR SDRAM memory? I have a system with only 128MB or RAM that is choking (intergrated graphics, go figure), and I wanted to upgrade it. NOTE: IT ISN'T POSSIBLE TO UPGRADE THE VIDEO CARD: IT HAS NO AGP SLOT. ONLY STANDARD PCI.

    No. the pc100 sdram module wouldn`t fit into the ddr dimm slots.

    Get at least a 512MB stick of ddr333 or ddr400(pc2700/pc3200) ram.

    Take out your 128Mb stick of ram and replace it with the larger ram module.

    Make sure that whatever ram you get it is compatible with your mobo.

    On the graphics card issue. It can be upgraded, by buying a pci graphics card.

    Do a Google search for pci graphics cards.
