Get the motherboards manufacture


i had 48 MB of RAM on my 6x86mb pr233 processor, but my 16 MB died. now i can only run my computer on a 32 MB dimm.

i recently ordered one 128 mb sdram dimm for my computer which has been recognized on another system, but my system will not recognize it. i have tried switching it between the two RAM slots i have and neither will recognize it.

i did not get motherboard guide with my computer, and the independent company that built it has since closed.

-could there be something wrong with my motherboard since it does not recognize the 128 or do i just have the wrong kind of ram for my processor?

-what kind of ram would actually work with my system?

Thanks a lot,

You might have the wrong memory for the motherboard.If your motherboard wasn't working, it wouldn't recognize anything.At least your motherboard is recognizing the memory you have on the motherboard.I would open up your case and try getting the manufacture of the motherboard.Then I would go to the manufactures website and get the memory configuration info for the motherboard.They should be able to tell you what kind of memory to install
