Sometimes there is printing on the motherboard itself that will tell you the make or model.

If the board supports PC-133 (which it does according to you), the most it will probably handle is 1GB (generally boards of this era were limited to .5 - 1.5GB maximums, 1GB beig gthe most common limit)

Problems with 3 brand new PC 133 512 MB RAM in Netvista 6794


That last RAM probably is good. Many motherboards have problems using many different memory. All of the memory you have should be at least identical to ensure that they work. When RAM run at different speed or require a little more voltage, they will not let your motherboard boot. You can try mixing up the order you put the RAM in. Try putting the last RAM in the first slot by itself, the motherboard should boot. Then try the rest.

Also, whenever you add or change hardwares, you should clear the CMOS/BIOS settings.

I put in a 512MB PC-133 memory stick and all my pc does is beep 3 times when I turn it on


1). Changed ram is of high frequency so its not supporting ur motherboard, change the ram and see to its frequency (eg. pc100, pc133)
2). Or you might have wrongly attached the ram to motherboard, so ram slot might have burnt.
