|| I want to purchase Fast Page Mode memory for my 486 computer, but the retailer only has EDO and Parity memory. What do I purchase?
|| EDO memory will not work in 486 computers. Parity memory, which is actually Fast Page Mode with 4 bits for parity checking, works in all computers. If your system does not use parity, it will ignore it. However, if your system does require parity, then you must use parity modules. Newer Pentium systems can be configured to use either parity or non-parity modules but need to have the BIOS set up accordingly.
