I have tried two different brands of ram and neither will work, is E-machine memory propritary? The specs for the motherboard require PC100 or PC133, up to 512MB. There are two SDRAM slots on the board. I just bought from Fry's Electronics - Corsair PC133, 256MB, unbufd, 168pin 32X64 Ram, and the computer does not like it. The other I had laying around is from VData PC133, 256MB, 168pin 32X64. Neither work it just beeps a lot when I try to run the computer.
The old memory is Hnnix 128MB Sync 133MHz, CL3 (PC133U-333-542) which works fine, but I need to upgrade the computer to two 256MB RAM chips. The computer is an Emachine T1140
