You may want to use a third party utility such as SiSoft Sandra to identify the motherbord,and the type of chip on board if you cannot read it from the board,check manufacturer web site

On most PII Motherboards the most they could take was 256MB per DIMM slot. Therefore having 3 Slots you would get a maximum of 768MB.

The best place to find the motherboard manufacturer is to goto www.ping.be/bios and identify the MB from the BIOS ID string. Award and AMI BIOS codes are all listed. On first booting your machine, press the PAUSE/Break key to freeze the machine withthe bios ID displayed. Note down the ID string and check it against the lists on the above site.

A P2 running PC100 Ram? It's a 440BX chipset motherboard then! That means 768MB maximum RAM (3 X 256Mb)

Electronic equiptment all have an FCC ID# on them (they are usually 3 letters followed by 4 numbers) Find it stamped on the board (it also usually says FCC ID next to it) and go to this website

http://www.fcc.gov/oet/fccid/

The search should bring up the name of the company who made the board (sometimes it's easier to just search by the first 3 letters).

Hope this helps
