Could someone please explain the difference between:
512M DDR-PC2100: 266mhz
512M DDR-PC2100: 266mhz ECC
512M DDR-PC2100: 266mhz ECC Registered
I'm looking to upgrade my ram, and mb to an ABIT KR7A-Raid Thanx:
One other question, my current MB is an Asus K7M. I have a stick of 512 PC 133 ECC ram that a buddy of mine bought for his Mac, but it won't load on mine nor his. If I was to flash my bios would this allow my MB to recognize it? This would be temp till I upgarde the whole system.
Right now I'm using 256 PC 133, and yes I did check the manual I downloaded from Asus, it's only "designed" to use PC 100. This should be fine as the mobo should just default to the 100 setting, right?
The K7M works fine with PC133 SDRAM. I dont think flashing the BIOS is going to make any difference with that memory module. I believe that the MACs use a different type of memory module than PCs do and I do not think that they are compatible with each other. Your friend probably didn't get the right type of module for the MAC that he had. If you go to the memory manufacturers website you can probably find out what type of system that memory module is compatible with.
Ep, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS
