Why doesn't 2 32M EDO SIMMs RAM work in my Commodore 486DX2 100 MHz computer? The screen won't even light up.

I think it is answer A. Because I do have the manual and it says that it should work, but it doesn't say anything about EDO ram.

Then A: is probably correct. Unless it specifically states in your manual that you can use EDO Simms, then they will not work on your motherboard. The design of the chip allows for faster data access which most older motherboards can't support. Good luck Kevinhol, and please come back if you have any more problems.
