Everest says my motherboard is a VIA VT82C693A (I can see this on my motherboard too). Apollo Pro133 while crucial.com says it is a VIA VT82C692BX (I can’t find this on my motherboard) Apollo Pro Plus (http://crucial.com/systemscanner/viewscanbyid.aspx?id=0D98434831D926C3).
I used CPU-Z and it says
chipset VIA Apollo Pro Rev. 44
Southbridge VIA VT82C596
and there’s nothing about the Northbridge.
I tried to install 3 high density 512MB SDRAM PC100 sticks, and they were all recognized as 128MB and the PC would freeze when I had all 3 of them in, but not with 2 or 1 of them. At Â»www.memory-up.com/memory_findersÂ·Â·Â·id=27260
It says that the VIA VT82C693A can support up to 768MB. And at Â»www.memory-up.com/Memory/VIAChipÂ·Â·Â·342.html it says the VT82C692BX supports up to 1.5GB. That’s the same model crucial.com said supports only 386MB.
So how do I tell which one is mine and which site is correct? How can I be sure of what the maximum RAM for my motherboard is?
