Upgrading SDRAM

By tjandrade ·
I am running an AMD K6-2 450,128MB PC100 RAM,10GB,Windows 98SE.
I have tried every combination and way to upgrade memory.
128MB,32MB,64MB,
OEM,Premium,Mitsubishi,etc.
and memory only records at boot not once I am in Windows.
Why?
Does anyone know??

Check the mother board specifications and see if the board will support memory upgrades over 128,K6-2,whereas the 2 is an indication.BIOS AND BUS speed are other factors that determine the memory up grade.
Iam using a pentium II with MMX,and I am maxed out with 128mg of memory,due to the board specs.

I would check with your motherboard manual to see what it supports.
Most older boards the limit is 128mb, but for newer boards their limit seems to be 512mb. some do goto 1024mb=1gb

Check it doesn't have to be in pairs
eg 2*128mb sdram

Hi came back to offer another solution
Check the motherboard manufacturer to see if the board jumpers or switches has to be changed to support memory upgrade.Some manufacturers have jumpers or switches that need to be set on the mother board,that allows the memory to be upgraded.

Check AMD's site: Their CPU's do not run with Ram from all manufacturers.
