    Maybe the bottom chips are just EMI filters/pull ups??? :oO

    There are NO possibilities that memory can be piggybacked this way. When 
you piggyback two memory chips, at least ONE of the pins must be routed 
separately. At least this is what logic tells me.

    I never seen a 128K *D*ram chip. SRAM exists. This is something that is 
driving me crazy here, I cannot find any datasheets/pinouts on this part 
number, nor any kind of info. Crazy.

    IF the memory was 16-bit-word, maybe you could be using 256K chips

    What was the replacement part you got?
