Yes that should not be a problem as DDR is backward compatible with the slower speeds so the faster RAM, will just slow down to match. These are the only conditions listed so as long as the stick you have doesn't fall under this criteria you should be good.

he D845GLVA board provide the following memory features:

  • 2.5 V (only) 184-pin DDR SDRAM DIMMs with gold-plated contacts
  • Unbuffered single-sided or double-sided DIMMs
  • Maximum total system memory: 2 GB; minimum total system memory: 64 MB
  • DDR266/200 MHz SDRAM DIMMs only
  • Serial Presence Detect (SPD)
CAUTION:
Do not use ECC DIMMs with this board. Using ECC DIMMs could damage the board.
Integrator's Notes:
  • Registered DIMMs are not supported.
  • Double-sided x16 DIMMs are not supported.
  • If a full-length PCI add-in card is installed in PCI bus connector 1 (the PCI bus connector closest to the processor), remove the add-in card before installing or upgrading memory to avoid interference with the memory retention mechanism.
  • This board has been designed to support DIMMs based on 512 Mbit technology for a maximum onboard capacity of up to 2 GB, but this technology has not been validated (currently validated up to 1.0 GB) on this board.

Note:
To be fully compliant with all applicable DDR SDRAM memory specifications, the board should be populated with DIMMs that support the Serial Presence Detect (SPD) data structure. This allows the BIOS to read the SPD data and program the chipset to accurately configure memory settings for optimum performance.

Enjoy the increase in RAM,
Lee

According to the specifications of you PC's motherboard. It supports DDR266 PC2100 type of RAM and only a maximum of 1gb RAM can be installed. If you have 512mb total of RAM right now, it is advisable to upgrade for a better performance of your PC.

Memory upgrade


Hi there.
The best memory for that motherboard is DDR SDRAM, the supported ram speed is 266 MHz • 200 MHz(maximum 2BG, 1BG in each slot)
Kingston or corsair memory running at 266MHz is my recommendation to you. Try not to buy used memory as it may not work!!

Good luck and thanks for using Fixya!!

Asrock K7VM2 Motherboard Memory Upgrade


Some MOBO support different type of memory modules like ddr 400, 333,533 and other, if your computer is working fine with that PC400 it only means that your MOBO is compatible with it. Since you're planning to upgrade the memory just get another PC400 because the memory should be the same to work fine.

Want to up grade to 2g ddr mem


hi

is this your board?

http://www.geniyisis.com/index.html?/Jetway/v266b.htm

well, if this is your board, you can upgrade your ram to 2gb howerver since it is a dual ram...(SDRAM and DDR) you cant use all the slots at 1 time since they are of different frequencies.

you can use DDr266 (pc2100) as your RAM since this board is a socket A as it is said here in the boards specs.

hope this helps
