I've got two old pc's and wanna switch around components. One has single-sided pc100 and the other has double-sided pc100.

Can I switch these? As long as I don't mix single and double sticks together will I be OK

EDIT: I would be putting the double sided ram on a PCCHIPS M741LMRT 1.4 mobo (EXCEL 2000 chipset) if that helps

Thanks

Shouldnt be a problem, try it and find out. I dont think mixing the two s a problem either, I seem to recal using one single sided dimm and one double sided dimm in my old P2 450Mhz. I could be wrong though.

Thanks, that's good to know. Did'nt actually get to it yesterday plus I better check out what the second mobo is.

OK, it's an Intel chipset board. Funky lookin thing. The cpu sits on a tray and is inserted sideways. The duffus that sold it to my office did'nt give us any documentation, so I've been busy hunting up drivers for the el cheapo components.

Thanks again

Sounds like a slot 1 440BX,LX,etc. MB. I have one like that and its <b>very</b>picky about the ram you put in it. If it has 3 ram slots they may only use 128 sticks, and as usual use all the same if possible for error free operation.

Good luck :smile:
