Just came up against a new one (for me...)
Still building PII's and PIII's for Emmaüs in France.
I'm upgrading (slightly) an old mainboard which has what looks like SDRAM slots with the two notches and the same number of contact points. Trouble is that at each end of the slot, instead of the plastic catches which hook on the "normal" SDRAM bars, there are rather smaller plastic catches which just seem to press against the ends of the bar. I manage to press some bars in but they hardly hold in at all and most of them spring out of their own accord!
What sort of bars do I need?
Thanks in advance
