Default memory query

I found a stick of RAM but I don't know what specs it is nor the brand. All it says on it is PC-100 compliant and below that it says pc100 -322 -620.

Any ideas on how much RAM that is?

thx

Probably 128MB or less. It's only PC-100.

its hard to tell the specs of the ram without a sticker on it or throwing it into a computer.

Do you have an old computer that takes PC100 memory?


There should by some numbers stamped on the chips themselves. Maybe try googling them and see what comes up.

yes, it has some numbers below some bar code of 0005789216. I will try to google it. It also has a CE enclosed in a circle. Forgot to add that it has a picture of a viking on it as well.

It looks exactly like this http://attachments.techguy.org/attac...3/viking-2.jpg

What you have there is a stick of Viking PC100 memory like this one: Viking 256MB SDRAM Memory Module

It's probably not the same size as that one, more than likely a 128MB module.

56 is a rather odd number if you think about how the world rolls (bases 2 and 10)
