Question about Intel Motherboard
I bought more ram for my fairly old pc, I had two sticks of 256 sdram, and ran a compatibility check on new ram from 4allmemory.com and I went with one of the recommended selections of two: 512mb ddr-266 (pc2100).
I assume my memory sockets 1 and 2 are for PC133 sdram DIMMS and memory sockets 3 and 4 are for the ddr 200/266 sdram dimms and can't be used together per a system scan by the website.
When I went to put the new ddr in I took out the two 256 sdram and saw that the new ddr wouldn't fit in slots 1 and 2 anyway so I assumed 3 and 4 were for the ddr. When I put them in I noticed they had to face the opposite way that slots 1 and 2 were but they fit. My pc didn't accept it because it was a slow beeping sound. I'm thinking I may have to configure a bios setting perhaps to allow it to recognize the ddr instead of the originals in slots 1 and 2. I dont have a manual for the motehrboard, but it looks like motherboard is : ITE, IT8705F, 0239-FXS, MFL6W0. I haven't contacted 4allmemory.com yet but says its guaranteed to work.??? Help Please
Good work seeker 1969! Guess what I found???
It took a lot of sleuth work but....
Go HERE for your motherboard manual. :)
It's a zipped Microsoft Word document file. I've scanned it. It's virus-free. All the information that you need is there. Go to page 11 for instructions (including illustrations) for installing SDRAM and DDR RAM.

Betwin the two couples of memory soket it must be ajumper that guives you the abilitie to change over the frequency rate when you change your memory model .
If there is no jumper try to check if they are not using a strap soldered in the mother board then you will need some electronic skills to change over your frequency
