hey guys, am hands-on mechanic in several fields. but little knowledge on ordering specs on parts. have e-machine, 733i,ME, came with 64 ram, now 128. bought 2-256's, had reason to think they would work from online evaluation link. no go.
trying to order a motherboard, but am lost when looking at the numbers. have 100gb with 30 slave.

also, could i have the wrong memory-- 32x64pc100-elp-n......M14N3264-82CCGHU:4 and....does anyone need this if i can't use it..? has only been plugged in, tried, and out.

i'm sure i'll be the greenhorn here, thanks for being here.

prayers, john

Hi Rod428,

The E-Machines 733i Computer can only support a maximum of 256MB of SD-RAM; this must be accomplished by using 2-128MB Sticks of SD-RAM.
Unfortunately the 2-256MB Sticks of SD-RAM you purchased are not compatible with this system.

Ordering a Motherboard for a Computer released prior to 2002 may be hard to find and not worth it.

Realistically not worth upgrading. Consider replacing the machine instead. Seriously.

I vote for this one! You're doing well to keep that dinosaur alive, though. :)

If you wanted to keep it, see if you can return the RAM and replace it with 2x 128MB sticks. The place of purchase may let you swap.
