Hello Guys, I inherited a Dell PC with an Intel 845g pci accelerated motherboard and it runs a bit slow. Three questrions: (1) Just what kind of memory does this mobo have? I believe it to be PC 133 unbuffered 168 pin non-ecc SDR SDRAM dimms. Is this correct? (2) Can the onboard "Intel Extreme Graphics" be upgraded? (3) It also has onboard audio and I tried to add a sound card bgut could not get the PC to recognize it even after dis-abling onboard audio in the setup. It only recognizes the sound card as "an unidentified multi-media device".

To get it to recognize the sound card, you have to install the soundcards drivers.

The memory type, speed, voltage and timings should be listed on a sticker on the ram.

I'm pretty sure that board doesn't have AGP slots (brown) or (long tan or white) Pci-e slots, it only has pci slots, which is very rare I must say.

Can you tell what the slot is by looking at it? Pci is a short tan slot, the first one near the cpu. If it's pci only you can only upgrade to a low end card like these and basically they are very overpriced crap because they haven't been made in many years:

Your best bet would be to look on craigslist or post and ad on craigslist for a PCI video card. I had a box full but I threw them all away years ago.

*edit* that last link was wrong, fixed it now.

Thanks for your input. No AGP, only PCI. That link you sent will be helpful. RustyMan
