Here's an old but (to me) a very desirable machine that I've had for a couple of years. In theory, I can add memory up 208 megs. (I think) Currently it has 16 megs!
I've been told that the required memory is FPM - (whch I've bought) but the machine fails to recognize any changes. (I've even stuck in EDO memory) with the hope that something would "wake up" but it does'nt. I'm beginng to think the board is faulty but, before I bin the whole thing, can anyone offer any advice regarding increasing the memory????

trackrod,

If Belarc Advisor doesn't do the trick, take a look at AIDA32 here;
http://www.aida32.hu/aida32.php

It does the same thing as Belarc but in much greater detail. If your comp and its components are really old it may not have much info, although it does have details of over 20000 components in its database.

If you do decide to try it, it might be a good idea to get the December 2002 version rather than one of the later 'preview' versions.

Thanks Guys - I had Belarc until recently (on this machine not the Prosignia) when I changed it in favour of Aida 32. I'll transfer it over to the Compaq and see what it comes up with -and let you know.

Not a lot of info, but Aida 32 did identify the existing memory (16Megs) as being 2 x 8 EDO - not fpm. (all on-line ref's to the Prosignia 300 Server refers to the memory as being fpm).
The Aida32 that I have is the latest "preview" version and (as TOGG says,) it dosen't recognise the Mother board. Will try and get hold of an eralier version. (It did suggest that with only 16M of memory performance may be affected !!)
I'm still a little confused in that I did at one stage, fit EDO ram (sheer frustration!) but when it booted it only showed the 16M memory - which it does no matter what type of ram I put in.
I'll try it again though, just to confirm.
