Default Problem Mesh Athlon XP1800+

my problem is I am using a non standard ASUS board (circa 2003) the board is believed to be M521-AL020-M7A-190DO1-00621(well that's what the motherboard say?) using XP pro there are 2 slots used out of five available with 2 x 256 DDR PC2100.
I want to upgrade to at least to 2 x 512 DDR PC2100 or even keep the smaller 2 x 256 DDR and add the 2x 512 DDR but there is that odd slot that bugging me . why five slots and not equal numbers ie 4 slots or two slots .
Don't want to throw it in the rubbish heap if I can as its well built pc just the memory needs to be sorted out
I contacted ASUS and they not willing or unable to help and I have tried other companies that sell the memory but they need to know how much memory I want to buy from them.

Default Re: Problem Mesh Athlon XP1800+

I had an aBit motherboard that had 5 ram slots, found that rather odd to say the least. it's difficult to know what configuration your board is happy to accept if there isn't a manual for it, unless you can find out if Asus made exactly the same board with a different model number then we can assume all in name only yours is the same board.

Providing the RAM you install is the same speed e.g. PC 2100 (I think 266 MHz) PC 2700 was 333 and PC 3200 was 400 MHz you should be able to run that amount of RAM with no issue effectively giving you 1.5 Gig of RAM.

I've got a bag full of DDR RAM here, if I find any in matching speeds would you b interested in taking the RAM off my hands ?
Is the juice worth the squeeze ?
