My board works great w/sdram but when I clear cmos and install either ddr266 @2.5v or 512MB 333mhz DDR nothing comes on. Question Will the PC2100DDR and/or the 2700DDR work and do I need to flash bios, since it not being detected Steve C

Steve,
What motherboard do you have? If it takes both types of memory, I believe there are different slots for each type of memory. If 4 slots, 2 are for ddr memory and the other 2 are for the PC100/PC133 memory.

As for whether it takes the PC2100DDR and/or the 2700DDR, need to read the manual to find out.

Regards,
Jay

What would life be like without my PC? :(

Hey Jay,
The manuaL SAYS IT SUPPORTS sdram UP TO 133 mhz and ddr up to 266 mhz memory bus. The PC2100 IS DDR266 MHZ AND THE PC2700 IS 333 MHZ, WHEN I REMOVE THE SDRAM, CLEAR CMOS, AND TRY TO INSTALL THE DDR, IN THE CORRECT TWO OF THE FOUR PORTS NOTHING COMES ON. WHAT DO I DO NOW? hhhhhELP STEVE
