Question SD-RAM Compatibility Issues

Okay, I am completely lost and I feel like a total idiot. I'm dumb with this stuff so please have mercy. I recently took out the SD-RAM from my PC because I plan on puttting in more, or different SD-RAM. I have the RAM from my PC here which reads:



------------------------------
Code:
Infineon, HYS64V16300-7.5-C2, 16MX64, SDRAM, C3E12318, PC133-333-520, Assembled in Malaysia, 128MB, Sync, CL3
------------------------------



Then just recently I tried to insert SD-RAM along with the above one but ended up getting garbled shit on my screen at startup. It was one from these next two cards that I pulled out of an old IBM computer:



------------------------------
This was the one I tried to insert:
Code:
Infineon, HYS64V8300GU-8-B, 8MX64, SDRAM, B2W95110196, PC100-222-620, Assembled in USA, 64MB, SYNC, 100MHz, CL2
Code:
TOSHIBA, THMY6480H1EG-80, 8MX64, 105777/0021UKC, PC100-222-620, ASSY IN USA
------------------------------



Then I have two more from an old Dell computer which I haven't tried yet because I don't know what the hell I'm doing:



------------------------------
Code:
325391, PRD, 05E4, PC100, S-DR, PC-64MCT
Code:
GMM26416233CNT, G-7J, 8511G, PC100-322-620
The above two contain 192MB RAM total.
------------------------------



So can someone explain to me what I can do to get the highest combination of two SD-RAM cards for the most RAM with having compatibility?

Well. the one that is in your computer now is pc133 and all the ones that you tried to install are pc100. That will cause compatibility issues. I would suggest getting some more pc133 ram and putting that in.

I was trying to Google this material but I couldn't make sense of anything I found, but I read something about overclocking or something. Isn't there a way I could set my computer to use 100 Mhz or something similar?

This sounds like a very early P4 Mobo,Or a late P3.With a motherboard that old,you can rule out overclocking,you gonne have to use PC133 RAM and PC133 only.
