Hi,

I have a friends GP6-400 PII gateway. Some boards say, you can't. that 386 is the limit, but others say, you can use 3 256m chips, as long as they are low density, 16chip.

I ALWAYs have a problem figureing out the correct ram, so I have a bunch of chips at work I want to try out before I buy them.

My question is does anyone know how I can tell if a stick is low density? I get the 16 chip part (I think....8 chips on each side), but have no idea how to tell if it is low density or not.

Thanks for your help!
Kim

Head over to Crucial and inster the make and model of the computer. From here you can find out what memory you can buy or order directly from them. I have always used Crucial memory and have never had an problem with it.

To save you some time I have done the steps for you:

Gateway GP6-400

Hope that this helps.
