    The mother board is a matsonic MS9317E and the maximum allowed memory is 2GB the chip set is XP4 HT7691. The CPU is a Pentium 4. The memory that i am using is PC133 and i have 256MB but i want to add another set of 512MB for a total of 768MB. When i try to install any combination with the memory it keep booting but if i install the 512MB only it work fine or if i install the two set of 256MB it work fine. Is there something that i am missing, does the mother board is not capable of handling more than 512MB?

Use 2 256mb chips, being an older board might not support any higher than 512Mb RAM

    if it says its capable of 2gb then thats what id go by, but make sure you are not using 2 differend speed stick of ram, other than that it may not be liking 2 different sizes.. is it running on dual channel? best bet would be to try either 2 x 256 or 2 x 512mb sticks, match them the same size

Types of sdram


PC66 SDRAM
PC66 SDRAM is the original module speed of SDRAM. PC66 SDRAM was the earliest version of SDRAM and therefore came in a number of smaller megabyte sizes than later versions. Most early motherboards were rated for PC66 SDRAM. The available sizes are 32MB (megabytes), 64MB and 128MB.
PC100 SDRAM


PC100 SDRAM was released after PC66 SDRAM and runs at a higher speed. It has the same number of pins as the earlier memory module and is capable of utilizing the same RAM slot. The only difference when installing this SDRAM in compatible computers with older systems (PC66 slots) is that the SDRAM will run at a slower speed. PC100 RAM comes in sizes such as 32MB, 64MB, 128MB, 256MB and 512MB.
PC133 SDRAM

The last generation of SDRAM is PC133. The PC133 memory provided a speed upgrade and comes in larger sizes than previous generations of SDRAM. PC133 modules are backward compatible with older SDRAM slots. The PC133 memory, however, will be forced to run at the slot's slower bus speed (PC66 or PC100). The memory comes in sizes like 128MB, 256MB, 512MB and 1024MB.

If I remember correctly, that Dell has two memory module slots, so 2 512 mb modules of non-ecc pc133 memory is the max that the system board will allow.
This is controlled by the system board chipset, and not by the bios.

Good Morning, Can I add memory to this computer? I read somewhere that you cannot add memory. I believe it was on Compaq's website, but I cannot not find the information anymore for some reason. My...


Yes you can still add memory on your computer. I believe that the memory installed in your computer is one 256MB ddr sdram. Since the motherboard of your computer has 2 memory slots, it can support up to maximum 2 GB memory ( unbuffered PC2700/2100 non-ECC DDR SDRAM memory ). Or 1GB on each slot. Hope this helps.

How to buy addtional memory 256MB, now 256MB. may need more memory for Windows XP Home grade-up from Win 98.


You need 100 MHz SDRAM SoDIMM 144 pin ram to match this laptop. You can put in a maximum of 512 MB (take out the current memory and put in 2 256 MB sticks). One source for this memory is http://www.pcmemorystore.com/Ashton_Digital-MaxiMate-420-ram.htm .

I hope this helps.

I would like to nwom how much of memory this laptop support


The Thinkpad is installed with 128 MB SDRAM is standard, and is expandable to 512 MB
There are two memory slots, to expand it to 512 Mb you need two 256 Mb RAM modules and throw away the 128 Mb RAM module, but if you don't throw away this module and you insert a 256 Mb RAM module in the 2nd memory slot then your total memory would be 384 Mb.
