Default MS7101C motherboard memory problem.

Hello.

I bought PQI 2x 128MB and 1x 256MB pc133 single side sdram memory to my MS7101C motherboard.
http://www.matsonic.com/mb/downloaddata/manual_via.htm

But every 128 sdram shows that it is 64MB and 256 shows that it is 128 MB....

Do i have been scammed or do my motherboard does not support it? I looked the manual and it says that it only supports pc66 and pc100 memory. Could this be problem? In the manual has no word about single side or double side....

Anyone any experience with that board?

pc133 should work on pc100 motherboard, but you'll just be operating on what the motherboard can support and that's at the speed of pc100.

You can tell a lot of information about the RAM module by the numbers on the chips. Take a look closely at the RAM and notice on each of the chips are references and digit. If you want to let me have a look at it. Just post it for all 3 stick of RAM you got and I try to identified rather you were rip off or not.
