Are those 2gb modules still available?
I tried to look on aliexpress and ebay, but I didn't find them.
Yeah I found these here, though this result turns up for all the different speeds so you'll have to find the proper matching sticks.

Well the Micron MT36VDDF25672Y-40BF3 ram I ordered came in today and with it brought a 2GB DDR1 ram revelation with it for my Asus A8n-SLI Premium.
As it turns out not all "MT36" are made equal.
To be specific I got 4 modules with 2 different models and 2 similar ones.
The modules that worked were numbered "200639" and "200649" and booted with the system with no problem separately and together.
The ones that failed were both labeled "200635" and didn't boot at all with the "memory warning" beep going off once power was pushed.
Sadly I don't have a Socket 940 to test these two sticks with to make sure they aren't broken, but I'd say it's safe to assume that "200635" and lower Micron "MT36" Ram wont work with any Asus Socket 939 board at least.
I'll see what I can do with the other two sticks on an ASUS A8N-VM CSM Rev.1.01 (if it'll even take it) I have in another rig of mine.
Hope this helps, and let me know if any of you get these sticks working, it could just be my board or my sticks acting up.
Well after a few years, I tried those s "failed sticks" on a Dell Power Edge 600SC server and "lo-n-behold" they still didn't work, so it seems those sticks are actually broken as I pulled the sticks that still work in my ASUS A8N-SLI Premium mobo (which I plan to have re-capped soon) and all those sticks worked just fine (though this Dell board can only use 2 at a time) so Shamino was probably right back then about those sticks being quirky/broken so y'all can probably use them as long as they are "guaranteed to work" when you buy them. 😉
