Interesting chip brand on memory modules...

#1 Post by cadillacmike68 » Wed Jun 03, 2020 6:02 pm

Check this out:

No matter which side of the aisle you are on, this should give you a chuckle:

Item number: 264742515896
Listing: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1GB-1G-DDR-RAM ... SwSPJey2CO

Item number: 264742515936
Listing: https://www.ebay.com/itm/1GB-1G-DDR-RAM ... SwLsRey2B3

Dammit the links got truncated but the item numbers are good.

I need to re-learn how to use tinyurl...

Any eBay link can (and should) be shortened like this:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/264742515896
https://www.ebay.com/itm/264742515936

Thanks for the reminder to NEVER buy such crap.

Yup please keep that in mind. I just replied in another thread that my experience with these sticks (yes I had them) was that they don't even give a glimpse of POST on a T42 that I had back then and I was only able to get it to work on an Inspiron 600m (The Inspiron replica of Latitude D600), and even then it is sketchy when I insert both of the sticks together.

Here goes:

But it appears that RBS already did it for us. Thanks again.

Just to be clear, I'm not promoting this, they are essentially junk as per kfzhu1229, but should generate a few laughs.
