Hi all,
This mb currently has two sticks of 256 mb PC2700 DDR Ram in it. I have a spare slot and due to a recent problem with memory I have emerged with a spare 256 mb PC2100 DDR. Can I add it to the mix?
Tia for any info.

Probably, but you'd have to run all your RAM at PC2100 speed. The easiest method is to put the PC2100 chip in the first RAM slot so it's the first one seen by the system.

This method usually works. Otherwise you'd be stuck going into BIOS with the PC2700 installed, forcing PC2100 speed, then adding the third chip.
