How do I upgrade memory on a t1100 emachine from 256mb

Answers :

Your emachines eMachines T1100\015\012only supports modules made with a specific type of chip. Should you\015\012find what seems to be the exact same memory elsewhere for a lower\015\012price, it is very possible that the cheaper memory will not work in\015\012your computer. From what I see you should use straight PC-133 Try a site like Kahlon.com-they make sure it works with your computer as would kingston or corsair...
Your maximum amount of ram is only 256mb total.
hope this helps...good luck- please leave a rating...thank you kindly
Sorry but the previous solvers areincorrect. I currently own an eMachines T1100 and the limit is256Mb per slot (2 memory slots). It will run fine withdifferent sized memory cards (mine originally had 384Mb - 256Mb plus128Mb) as long as their the correct type of memory. You can upgradeto 512Mb but there is a catch. When you put in 512Mb memory(2X256MB) you will get an error message that the BIOS is not fullyACPI (Advanced Configuration and Power Interface) compliant. You can turn off the ACPI but it normally takes a system rebuild todo it.
