Question RAM degredation

I have an Emachine 333C celeron hat I have added 128 MB PC100 Ram to the MB, that plus the orginal 64 should give me a total of 192, the most system ever shows is 160 and recently it has been dropping out to 32! Don't see that it is loose connections since it's been running at 160 for over a year and then just in the last couple weeks 32. The 160 comes back when I reboot. so it's hiding somewhere in Win 98SE.

First thing to check is your documentation to see if your motherboard is running a 133MHz.
Second, check for viruses.
Third, reseat your memory.
Fourth, try each memory chip by itself.

If memory (My organic and faulty one) serves me, 333MHz should use PC66 DIMMs. However, the MB should still use PC100.
When you installed the RAM, did you put the 128 DIMM in slot 0 and move the original 64 MB from slot 0 to slot 1?(So the PC uses the new DIMM first.)
