  1. I have an IBM Aptiva E Series 270 with an AMD K-6 2/400 that has two RAM slots. Each currently has 128MB RAM sticks. Can this board handled 256MB RAM sticks?

    Thanks for your help.

    I take it you don't still have the manual or box that came with the Motherboard (or you were never given it)?

    I'm pretty sure that 128 sticks are the max on these boards but they're pretty old so my memory isn't at it's best. For memory the absolute max on the 270s is total 256meg.

    Hope that helps!

    Check this out
    search for 270. Looks like you're at maximum capacity!

    thanks craniax.

    is there anything that can be done to the mother board to allow for more?

    Or I'm pretty much hosed.
