Re: Help needed
Could you be more specific on the mobo odel number? A quick search of MSI's site for "nForce2" yielded three mobos, all of which can handle up to 3gig of RAM.
All of them have this note regarding memory:
"NOTE: nForce2 does not support x4 memory for 1GB but it could support other density of dram chip such as x 8, x16"
You can upgrade to any DDR RAM. A slower speed than what you have will cause the motherboard to downclock your current RAM. Faster RAM will be downclocked to the speed of your current RAM.
