I’m concerned however because the computer was purchased a very long time ago and came with PC2100. PC2700 is way cheaper than PC2100 and I could really tighten up the timings if I halve the memory rate (which is what I’d have to do). (in fact they have one ram module at 100 MHz right now and one at 133 MHz).
Any problems with this? The new memory would be 333 MHz which I’d have to underclock.
Thanks. They use it for e-mail and pictures. I’m floored whoeevr built this thing was an idiot (Sony or Circuit City). They used two non-matching RAM chips and the computer was only recognizing 480 Meg of RAM and sometimes it’d drop to 250 Meg (and yes I konw those numbers are impossible).
Wow, I’ve not run into a system with shared video in… like forever. Memory is totally unstable however. Can’t pass memtest of Prime95 for even a second. They also partitioned the HD poorly. 75% of the space is allocated to a drive they never use which also has no links or defaults.
