Well, given my problems finding working RAM for the machine, I'm not
surprised. I'm away from my machine currently, so I can't check what kind
I use. I could check in about a week, but I'm not sure the result will
help you much. I had some modules that worked and some that didn't, all
of the same brand.

In you situation I would borrow modules from other machines and check if
they work with the 164SX. When you find working modules, buy new ones for
the other machine.
