Hello,
Can a motherboard hold different types of RAM slots like DDR1, DDR2 and SDRAM? Will it work properly with different type of RAMs.

Don't think so. Maybe someone else know otherwise.

There are mobo with both ddr and ddr2 slot but I am not sure if you can mix them up. Search through the forum, I am sure someone already asked that question before. Also those board are quite hard to find.

Some motherboards support different RAM types, either through a Riser Card (Asus P3C-E has this, Supported RDRAM and PC-133, RD-800 RAM with a P-III tualatin proc was fun times, lol) or separate DIMM slots (I've seen quite a few interesting boards with this, especially when a new RAM type is being introduced to the market). I have not seen an actual motherboard/chipset which supports simultaneous DDR1/DDR2/DDR3/etc. memory operation, I've personally only seen either/or operation, however, this doesn't mean it does not exist though.
