    that motherboard uses PC2100 DDR SDRAM.
     
  7. somewhere if you bought it new you should have got a book on what the motherboard needs for memory and how to add some.
    easist short cut , if you want to add say 256 more then open case, if there is 256 in there now, and you see its only one chip and theres more empty slots then take it out and have a memory guy test and match it then put both back in.:D
