View Full Version : Quick 256mb old memory question.

I have an old stick of memory I want to sell, but like most things inside a computer it is poorely labled. :confused:
It has chips on both sides - so double sided I assume? Writing I could decipher.... In no particular order...

H.P D5297AX 4M64 (32MB)
4M x 64 SDRAM,
9813M DA ST
Micron USA
6621 REV B

Now its obviously by H.P, and that MT16.... is the serial number Im geussing, there's just so much written on there its super confusing. Is it pc100, pc133 - something else?
Anyways - can anyone post a link to this particular memory or hazzard a guess what its probably worth? ~$40 perhaps more?

I would like to use it on my current computer- but it's so old it cant handle 256MB sticks dammit! :badpc:

HP tells you: 4M by 64 bits. 64 bits is 8 bytes. 8 x 4 --> 32 , by my digital computer. (though I had to count some fingers and toes more than once).

One shop in Christchurch was selling them at $3-50 each a while ago, though theirs were 100 MHz :D

Haha damn, I just figured it was better than my computer since the comp I pulled it out of was twice as fast, so when the memory didnt work and I looked at my system and it said it couldn't support 256MB sticks, while it was actually worse than my standard memory.

Man this stuff's old. :badpc:

Well that was dissappointing! :( $3.50 haha.

Molten Media now have 32 MB SDRAM at $20 each, according to their website (www.molten.org.nz). (It was in their shop that I saw trays of them at $3.50 some time ago.)

You can use CPU-Z to detect some information of the memory if you can
get the memory running on a computer.

The prices we get for PC100 / PC133 are 50-70 for 256MB, 30 -40 for 128MB,
about twice as high as the prices of DDR / DDR2 memories.
