512mb memory or not

  conquistador 19:48 03 Aug 04

I have a Packard bell iconnect 1275 with a celeron 810 chipset.It is a Houston 3+ motherboard, i currently have 2 128mb memory sticks in. I have information saying i can have 256 in each or 512 in 1. But i have been informed by a shop that the iconnect 1275 can only go up to 256 full stop. Can anyone shed any light on this confusion as i would like to go up to 512 in one stick. Also is PC100 similar to PC133, would they both work fine.

Maximum memory would appear to be 256mb.

Interesting,it may well be that you would have great difficulty obtaining the 128 bit memory that you require,i honestly don't know.

Good luck Sid.

I would tend to agree with Crucial,they aren't the No.1 RAM suppliers for nothing,but there again,I have already got 2xPC133 256Mbs RAM modules so I would give 'em a go to see what would happen.After all,it can only boot OK or bleep forlornly. :-)

Mixing PC100/133 RAM isn't recommended,the RAM will only operate at the slowest sticks speed,and the inconsistencies with RAM need only be very slight to create a very unstable system.

if they say its OK and it then appears to be incorrect, I believe they will reund the monies anyway (part of their guarantee)

Just for the record, i emailed crucial and they said i could go up to 512mb -256 in each. I bought two sticks and installed them and they work perfectly and show up as 512mb on my system.
Really improved speed and i only paid £33 off ebay. Thanks for everyones help.
