my machine calls for a max. of 256mb

i have only 2 slots available which are filled with a 32mb and a 64mb.

the local store is having a special sale for 256mb memory chips. priced lower than the 128mb and 64mb chips.

can i fill one of replace one of my slots with a 256mb ? bringing my total memory well over the 256mb?



(ps the 64mb was a memory chip i had installed months ago to go with the 32mb already installed by the factory)

Depends on the motherboard. It may only support 128max dimms, and I would think with the 256max that that is the case.

No clue, the memory won't damage your machine, if it's too large it just won't work. If the retailer allows returns you could try it.
