1. No - you can never mix ecc and non-ecc memory
2 No you cannot use ecc in a non-ecc motherboard
3 - Find the mother board model number and search google or the manufacturers web site for the specs


ECC are generally only used in servers  or mission critical systems or in Mil-Spec Computers

1. No, you cannot mix ECC and non-ECC.
2. No, memory is one or the other - ECC memory will cause a non-ECC board to not complete POST.
3. Look up the specs on your board.  Do you have one in particular you are wondering about?
