Fixing an old super7 w/AMD 2/450, purchased sdram 256 32x64 PC 133.
I know this computer only uses pc 100 but the pc 133 was cheaper. XP only
sees 128k. Any help would be appreciated

    Take the RAM back. Its density is too high for that board. For a 256
    stick to work it must have at least 16 discrete RAM chips. It'll
    probably be easier to get a pair of 128 sticks.
