I included your sig cause I like it.
ok.........got 2 boxs at a friends house.1st box (my email box 576MB PC133) he got a reading of Duron 1.7 something from the elite mobo. when he took off the cpu fan to replace it, it turned to be an athlon, much newer than what the mobo read.
2nd box 9digital recording box, likely demos only) 256MB PC2100 shows a reading of being an athlon xp 1.15 with a bus speed of 66.
my computer geek friend said that's impossible. he's going to replace that cpu fan also and find out what the cpu really is.
you answered my first question about mixing memory. so, the boxes will be what they are. old, but functional.
I'm just curious what to do with 4 sticks of 128MB PC100. it's pretty expensive online. maybe I can peddle it on Ebay
And again, I agree. why spend a bunch of money needlessly? I can upgrade the music box with another 256MB of PC2100 for 20 bucks.
I'm NOW just waiting to see if Alan (my pc guru buddy) finds MORE wrong with the 2 identical elite mobos.
