    My GF's comp has an Intel mu440ex mobo which needs sdram. I bought a 256 meg single sided stick, but it only reads it as 128 meg. The mobo can go up to 256 meg so???? Is it just that it is a single sided one? Or should I flash the bios and hope for the best? New bios will be at intel.com ????

    Hehehe yeah. She gave me a carte blanche to play with it.
    "If you kill it, you need to buy me a new one"

    I am building myself a good comp and this is just to tide me over while I am broke. I am getting an a7n8x deluxe and a XP2200 or so when I can afford it.

    Trying to get as much bang for the buck as I can for free :D

    Thanks! The answer I wanted was the truth :D

    At least I know what the problem is now. I will put the 16 meg stick in the other slot as well> HEHEHE.

    Any idea where the bios update will be?

    just go to www.intel.com put in the MB model # in the search field. I am sure you can figure it out from there.

    Awesome Thanks!!

    Will it work better if I get a win98 one? Or are the generic ones ok?
