Is there a difference in DIMM memories? My motherboard' book reads that the DIMMs required must be 100 MHZ. Do they come in different pi configurations?

Yes, theres PC133, and PC100. 100 is a bit slower, but if your chipset cant handle it, you're stuck.

What board is it?
kramnnim is correct, although most pc 133 will work in a pc100 board. It will just run slower. There also was pc66 back in the dark ages of computers. 2 or 3 years ago. LOL

Mine's a cheapo Intel 810 chipset, Crucial, and Compaq themselves say 133 will work, but Intel says it doesnt, and...it doesnt. (Which caused me much grief)

My board is a VA 503+, mfgd by First Computer International, running a K6-2/500. Award Bios Ver 4.60PGA, Bios v 1.0A
I wrote to FCI, but no reply. Any help is greatly appreciated.
The manual only states rge DIMM is required to be PC100.
Thanx for the fast response. Chas
