I ran Everest to get some info about the computer.
CPU Type AMD K6-2, 450 MHz (4.5 x 100)
Motherboard Name GVC FR520
Motherboard Chipset SiS 530
System Memory 59 MB (SDRAM)
BIOS Type AMI (10/15/98)
Communication Port Communications Port (COM2)
Communication Port EPSON Printer Port (LPT1)
It is a Proteva computer and when I look up 'GVC FR520' on the 'net it says the motherboard is a Packard Bell.
When I went to crucial.com, I didn't see Proteva as a manufacturer I could select. It appeared to me that they wanted the computer manufacturer, not the motherboard manufacturer.
Using 'GVC FR520' to search, I found this link on the 'net for 'Packard Bell Miami M/Board':http://www.uktsuppor...pb/mb/miami.htm
This was on the page:
# CPU : CPU upgradable up to 450 MHz.
# RAM :
* RAM upgradable up to 512 MB using 66 or 100 MHz SDRAM DIMMs.
* The Miami motherboard only accepts 168-pin DIMM modules. Only gold-plated DIMMs may be used, as the sockets on the motherboard are also gold-plated, and oxidation must be prevented.
* Use 60 ns, 3.3 V CAS Latency 2, single- or double-sided DIMMs only. Parity is not supported.
I hope I have provided enough useful information that someone will be able to advise me.
As usual, any assistance would be greatly appreciated.
Peace be with you,
