If you've bought this high density memory cheap off Ebay, then probably not, but if you have it already, why not just try it and see? It will either work, or it won't :laugh:

I agree... if you already bought it, why just not try it?

Genarally, all ram will work, as long as the memory controller can handle it and as long as the modules will fit into the socket... The latter will be obvious, the first son't be until you try since the memory controller is INSIDE the CPU...

so, just try!!

Good luck.  :biggthumbsup:

Hi

Thanks for all the comments etc.

The answer is:-

It don't work.   Using 1 or both of the sticks, machine starts, shows 1gb or 2gb memory on startup.   Then before the boot is complete, machine dies.
Put original PC2100 low density sticks in and all is fine again.

You live and learn.

Cheers

And that is proof high-density sticks don't work? Or is it proof that those sticks, to that amount, makes booting difficult in your system? Meaning, I don't think anything much - but for some beeping - would happen if it didn't support high-density chips ==> No POST. Whoever inside your system does the counting, she sees the full amount.  :-))

What I wonder more about is the FSB of 133(266) for PC2100 memory. What processor do you have, and what temp.? Do things work if you load BIOS Fail-Safe Defaults?
