    Thumbs up 1Gb RAM for EPIA Owners - Compatible

    I just thought I would let everyone know that I found a source for 1Gb PC2100 RAM sticks that are compatible with EPIA systems. They're hard to find and no one will guarantee compatibility.

    OK, maybe these may not be compatible with all EPIA boards, but at least the M10000 Nehemiah board.

    These aren't the generic sticks with compatibility problems. They're 128Mx64 with 64Mx8 chips. This is different than the compatibility problems with a lot of the 128Mx64 with 128Mx4 chips.

    For $160 plus shipping, that ain't bad at all! I fired mine up today, and it ran just peachy.

    Be advised that this vendor has strange shipping methods/costs. I paid $6.99 for thier "7-9 Business Day + Insurance" shipping. It took the whole 9 business days, and there was no tracking/shipping info available from the vendor. Anything faster than that will cost you at least $14.99. And my RAM came US Mail. That seems like a lot for dropping a stick of RAM in a bubble/static envelope and mailing it.

    As a side note:
    This same vendor (web site) has 21 Key USB/PS2 Numeric Keyboards for $8. Ya can't beat that. It's a nice unit too. I just tested mine out.

    Later,
    Tom

    I just got my new Epia M10000 board and want to get 1gb of ram. Anyone tried this ram? what other brands work on this board? I hear of many problems with the 1gb ram stick. is there a bios fix yet?

    I'm having an issue with memory and my M10000 board. I have two sticks, both of which are 1gb sticks, but they both show up as 512k. Is this the problem? Are they incompatible with the board? I would think, if they were, they wouldn't show up at all.

    They are incompatible. Sometimes a bios flash will help, most of the time you just have to deal with the limitations of these boards.
