Question about installing memory modules

Q: Question about installing memory modules

My motherboard is a Z77 Asrok Extreme 6.

It has four dimm slots. I have One kit of 8 gigabyte memory from Gskill that is DDR3. 'dual channel' (11-11-11-28) PC 2133.

If I get another kit of 8 gig from ANOTHER vendor and its different timings can I put them into the alternate slots and have it work? Say I buy Corsair (9-9-9-9) PC 1600. Would the two kits work against each other since they are different timings? Is this NOT recommended?


Here is another better question. What if I buy the exact same memory from Gskill and drop them in as well? So I have two kits of dual channel 8 gig ram for a total of 16 gigs. Both kits would be same type/speed and latency. Will this work or do I need to use 'quad channel'?

Edited for spelling.

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/directdownload.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I'm thinking that different timings will cause issues with Dual Channel functionality. I'm also thinking that Dual Channel only functions if all modules can operate in dual mode. If you are not planning on operating in Dual Channel mode, I don't think it matters. However the modules should operate with the same timing, if they are to be linked together.

Anyway without actually knowing for sure, those are my thoughts.

I've got a Gigabyte 81845GVM-RZ mobo with a 256 MB Hynix DDR266. I just bought a Kingston 512MB DDR333 module (because it costs the same as the 256MB). Which one should I insert into the first or slot 0 to obtain the best performance and/or stability ? I guess I will be getting only a 266MHZ speed but my ram will increase to 768 MB ?

I am in the market to purchase new memory for my computer. I hear Corsair is the best, but I wanted some expert opinion. What has the best reputation and is one model of memory faster than another? I have 2 slots available. Is there a memory stick made that is larger than 1Gb?

I have a P4 Titan series motherboard and actual memory modules are 2 X 512 DDR 333/266/200 DIMM slots (2). I want to upgrade to 2 X 1gb. which is the max. I am looking at 1gb DDR400 ECC. Would this be compatible ?
Thanks
 

A:memory modules

Go here and allow the Crucial System Scanner to load and run.

After the scan is finished and a report is displayed, copy-and-paste the webpage address to that report here so we can go there and view it.

------------------------------------------------------------------

If the motherboard is designed for DDR333/266 modules, it'll probably accept and run with DDR400 modules, but they'll run at the slower speed that the motherboard supports.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

The larger the number, the faster the speed.

DDR400 is DDR PC3200(400 MHz)

DDR333 is DDR PC2700(333 MHz)

DDR266 is DDR PC2100(266 MHz)

I have just bought a load of MB RAM and MB RAM modules to upgrade a number of PCs ranging from MHz P to MHz P The modules were specified as MHz SDRAM DIMMS and although most of the PCs were non-branded I was able to check the motherboard details and according to all the specs there was no reason why these memory modules should not have been OK However with the exception of one MHz P none of the other PCs accepted Memory modules the memory correctly - they all registered exactly half of the actual memory on the module I have Memory modules heard of problems where double-sided modules would only register half their memory but in this case all the modules were single sided I did not order them as single sided they just came like that even though the spec was x for the MB and x for the MB which suggests double-sided to me Where is the problem and how can I make sure I get memory that works properly Thanks nbsp

A:Memory modules

Many new memory modules cause that problem. The issue is the addressability of the individual chips. The fewer number of actual physical memory chips the module has, the newer the memory support chipset on the MB needs to be to properly address all the memory. The address lines from the individual chips come directly to the module interface connection, and the MB has to be designed to use them. Some omit the high-order address lines to save money, and as a result they only address half the memory. I've personally traded several people older modules for new ones to solve this issue for them, it's quite common.

Hello there

I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction.
I have a Satellite Pro M40 Part Number : PSM46E-00H002EN

I really want to upgrade the memory but I dont know what to get.
I know I want two 1GB ones but I don't know what type.

I have looked and there seems to be so many.

Could someone tell me exactly what I want or give me a link to one to buy.
I would be rerally grateful.

I think you should check this Satellite Pro M40 memory page:

Memory for Toshiba Satellite Pro M40
http://www.orcalogic.co.uk/asp/prodtype.asp?prodtype=26119&ft=m&st=3

It says that you could use the DDR2 533MHz (PC2-4200) 200-PIN SODIMM memory modules and you could upgrade the memory up to 2GB RAM

Hello,

I recently added some extra memory to my PC. My local superstore advised me that the unit they sold me was the same as the one already installed. This seems to be not so.

I ran SiSoftware Sandra and noticed the following differences in

Date of Manufacture: 25 December 1999
Set Timing @ 200MHz: 3.0-3-3-8
Set Timing @ 200MHz: 2.5-3-3-8

< Memory Module 2 >
Manufacturer: Dialog
Type: 512MB DDR-SDRAM

Set Timing @ 200MHz: 2.5-4-4-8

Can you please advise me if the differences damage performance and if so is there any way of rectifying the problem or do I need a new chip. If so which one of the above is the better performer

A few memory module questions:

1) Given a memory module with timing of 5-5-5, is that otherwise known as Cas Latency 5? Is 6-6-6 Cas Latency 6?

2) Which of the two is more performance oriented?

3) Some mobos I am looking at on newegg.com bear the requirement "Only DDR2-800 memory supporting JEDEC approved 1.8V operating with timings of 5-5-5 or 6-6-6 is supported on Intel Desktop Boards based on Intel 965 Express Chipsets." In this instance, "Intel Desktop Boards" are those from Abit or Asus that accommodate Intel CPUs.

Is it sufficient to find DDR2-800 5-5-5 modules running 1.8V or is the JEDEC seal of approval also mandatory?

4) Is 1.8V synonymous with JEDEC?

Thanks.

Assuming you have a working system, you should try 4AllMemory and use their [Check My System] applet.

The applet will return a list with the exact specs for the DIMMs you need to match your system/motherboard.

Note I am not saying you need to buy from them, but their applet is really neat.

I know that many good computer repair shops have a device that can test memory modules. Are there software programs that can be installed on the computer with the memory modules you want to test that can also do this? If so, are they pretty reliable? If so, any software names/products that you have tried and can recommend.
 

A:Testing memory modules?

Download

Download MemTest86 here:
http://www.memtest86.com/
You want the Free Download => ISO image (zip)

Unzip the downloaded file. You will get an .iso image file. This file is burned to create a boot CD. To burn an image file you can't just copy the file to a CD. You have to use an image burning utility. Windows doesn't inculde one natively. If you don't have a third-party image burning program you can use this one:
http://www.imgburn.com/index.php?act=download

It will put a right-click context menu option to burn an .iso file, or start the program and navigate to the .iso file you extracted above.

Instructions

You would be running one stick of RAM at a time. If you have more than one, remove to leave just one, then run the test.
On the screen, you will see your CPU type and your chipset type on the top left.
The program run a series of 9 tests on the stick of RAM. A complete run of the 9 tests is one Pass.
The progress is shown at the top right: total Pass progress, and the progress of the currently running test. Some tests take longer than others. I ran a test on a single stick of 1 GB of RAM and one Pass of 9 tests took about an hour. Different hardware will take more or less time.
After a Pass is completed, the program starts all over again automatically. For a thorough test it can be left running for several Pases. Some folks let it 2 or 3 hours or even overnight.
You're looking for Errors. They are reported in the bottom horizontal line, next to Pass.
Errors indicate failures/faults the RAM card.

Alternative if you can boot into Windows

If you can boot into Windows, you can get an alternative MemTest here:
http://hcidesign.com/memtest/download.html
Unzip the downloaded file, read the included manual, and run memtest.exe.

I recently bought 215MB of PC133 SD RAM to add onto my 128MB and 32MB Sticks. With all three installed, my system is only picking up the 256 and the 32 (288 Total). I have tried moved the RAM into different slots a few times now, and am coming up with the same result.

Does anyone know what could be causing this to happen? I know all of the slots are good, and the 128MB Stick worked fine before.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.
 

A:Question about installing memory

actually, whats probably happening is that its picking up the 128 and the 64 correctly but only registering half the 256.

verify this by booting with only the 256 installed.
This happens because either your MB doesnt support a stick of ram that big or it doesnt support high density ram.

Post the make/model of your motherboard and we can find out.

It's the proper type of ram but mixing different speeds and sizes can cause problems on some systems. You can still find cheap DDR ram if you buy used or new for about $17.00 for another 512MB.

RD RAM = complete nightmare. I'd suggest it would be cheaper to get an entire new AMD system (MOBO, memory and processor) rather than trying to get more RD RAM, especially as you'll have to buy a pair of RD modules as they don't work singly.

Hello,

can anyone tell me why my Windowx XP sees only 1024 MB memory while I've increased the original memory of 512 MB by 2x 512 MB ?

My motherboard has three DDR-slots. It had from the beginning a Kingston K 512MB PC2700 module in slot #1. This week I've added two Kingston K512 UDIMM 512MB PC2700 modules in the slots #2 and #3.
All three modules has the type name KVR333X64C25/512, so I thought they would be compatible.

What have I done wrong ? And what can I do to let Windows XP know that it has 3x 512 MB at his disposal ?

To access the memory modules the right side panel needs removed, but need to know if Bank 1 (or 0) is the one towards the front of the pc, or the one towards the back of the pc.

Trying to help someone by phone.

Thanks for the help.

Hi I'm currently shopping for a laptop that has an active digitizer as well 16 Laptops modules GB memory that support as GB memory support There was only one model I found that supported this the Lenovo Thinkpad Yoga Turns out now the model with the active digitizer won't be produced for a while and instead we have the Thinkpad Yoga which supports it This laptop however only has space for one memory module and Lenovo lists the memory support as up to GB I want to know if that is simply because GB modules are simply not yet on the market or if the motherboard has some kind of limitation When I ask vendors I also asked Dell since the Inspiron has switchable memory are very cryptic about it since they don't want to answer what third party components they would or wouldn't support My fear is that when I buy the Thinkpad Yoga and one day GB Laptops that support 16 GB memory modules modules hit the market I switch the GB module for a GB module and the motherboard won't POST I understand this question invites speculation rather than fact but would it actually make sense to have a motherboard limit on how much memory it can read from one slot If by any chance I've missed a laptop with two GB slots that actually has an active digitzer I'd love to know Thanks

Hi,

I have two RAM modules
# 512 DDR1 400 Mhz (Hynix semiconductors)
# 256 DDR1 333 Mhz or less frequency I believe. (Simtronics semiconductos)
My motherboard make is Intel 865 GFB a quite older model.
I would like to know is it possible to make the computer to work properly by installing both of these RAM modules which are with different frequency or will it harm my computer hardware!

Replies and suggestions are much appreciated!

I am trying to install more memory on a machine running Win XP. It has 3 slots with a total of 128 mb installed. Each slot can handle 256 mb, so I removed the modules from all 3slots and replaced the 1 and 2 slots with 256 each. When I turn on the machine and go to system (on control panel), it only shows 256 mb. Why? Is there something else that I need to do? I removed the module from the 1st slot, thinking that it was really the 3rd slot and put it in the empty slot and the machine only showed 128 mb, so it seems that either only 128 mb from each slot is recognized or only the first slot is recognized. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

As far as I can see I have currently dual channel DDR3 RAM memory modules.
Assume it would not be written on a label sticker on the ram modules:
How can I find out if a ram modules support dual channel or not?

As I learned I have to put dual channel mondules into different channel slots to get full speed.

My motherboard has current 4 slots:
Channel A: slot 1 + slot 2
Channel B: slot 1 + slot 2

Assume I put the 2 modules into the 2 slots of channel A.
How much performance/speed loss do I get approximately?

What happens when I have two single channel ram modules:
Does it matter where (in which slots) I put them?

You can buy sets of RAM that work together,
If you have more RAM modules that are the same you can try them out in your PC It will work or it won't
Dual Channel is selected in the BIOS (this can happen automatically on some boards)

I keep getting a 0x00000050 BSOD when the two dd3 sodimms are installed in my HP dv7-6157cl, however if I only install one (either of them) I don't get any errors at all.

A:0x00000050 BSOD only when 2 memory modules installed

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+





Quote:
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.*Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.*If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
*If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.*If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
*If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.
4. If you find a stick that passes the test, test it in all the other motherboard slots.

If Part 2 testing shows errors, and all tests in Part 3 show errors, you will need to test the RAM sticks in another computer and/or test other RAM in your computer to identify the problem.

In this way, you can identify whether it is a bad stick of RAM, a bad motherboard, or incompatibility between the sticks.




   Information
Errors are sometimes found after 8 passes.



   Tip
Do this test overnight, before going to bed.

Hello,

This is a really rubbish and simple question, but I cant seem to find an answer.

I have a Gigabyte 7N400 Pro2 rev.1 MOBO - as you may have guessed from the title.

I have a strip of 512MB RAM - PC3200 DDR.

Now, my question:

Is the reason I put PC3200 in there because it only takes 3200, or can I put in anything I like...? or even different types togther?

ie 512 PC3200 and 512 PC2700

or does it all have to be the same..... and more importantly - what can this motherboard take?

There are 4 DIMM slots.

please dont reply and tell me to look in the manual - i dont have it and the manual section on the Gigabyte website says "Coming Soon" which is obviously never gonna happen as this mobo is old and has since been forgotten about.

either that, or im stuck in a time paradox

someone PLEASE help me

Hi,

I don't know if anyone ever experienced this:

after installing an extra 512mb RAM on my HP Pavillion zd7000 series (1gb total) everything works fine... until I work with very large files (200-400mb) in Photoshop CS. This happens mostly doing the same operations (burning, dodging, brushing, etc). The only other time this happened was while converting CD's to MP3 in iTunes.
This happened already with 3 different RAM modules, and only happens with the extra RAM installed. With the original 512mb everything works fine (even if slower).

The RAM specs for this unit are: DDR PC2700 CL 2.5

Any help would be really appreciated!

Hey guys, today I just found my 2 ram modules hidden in my drawers, since these 2 are the same as the 2 I am using along with 2 other modules, I decided to install the 4 identical ram modules(GEIL 1D DDR2 800mhz). Initially, I had 2 ramaxel 1g 667mhz and 2 GEIL 1G DDR2 800mhz. When I did this, there were several beeps, I couldn't define how many because the beeps sounded weird and not in sequence. Some pauses were longer than the other. When I hear it longer, I think it's 2 or 3 beeps. I have never seen anyone have problems with installing identical rams as its the optimal thing to do and most users do it.

A:Problems installing 2x2gb ocz ram modules in vista premium 32 bit.

Did you look up the maximum frequency that the mainboard will run the RAM before you installed them? It really shouldnt make a difference but if you did happen to exceed the limits of the board...it may cause system hangs.

I looked up that type of RAM...do you know that its frequency is 1150 MHz? You are attempting to use RAM twice as high of frequency of your existing. You may be not able to use this RAM because its frequency is too high.

Just to check, in your BIOS...does it show that you have 4 GB RAM installed? If it doesnt...reconnect them and try again. If that works...I dont think the RAM would work.

When installing memory chips, there are a couple of details I would like to see in writing.

If two chips are of different size, does it matter which order they are installed in the slots?

Is it better to use one big chip, say 512, or two smaller chips, like two 256es?

This would help others as well.

Doesn't make any difference, the CPU will address the memory in the same manner at the same addresses regardless of the slot it is in or whether or not you split it up. The biggest difference is the type and speed of the memory you are installing.

Hi everyone.

I wanted to install more memory to one of my older computers, because the memory is only 128mb.

I have installed PCI cards in the past, and I am not a total newbie to computers.

My question is: How hard is it to install memory? Could someone tell me how to do it or where I can find instruction on how?

And if I already have 128mb memory and I add more memory, will I have to remove the 128 or do I add on to it? (Like if I buy 128 I will have 256)

I'll be installing two new memory cards plus an extra parallel port in my Compaq Presario 5461.

What I need to know is:

Once I install the memory cards, then do I have to do something about "Hi Mem" ??? If so, what do I do?

If not, then will the OS (Win 98 v2) just recognize the new memory and accommodate it with no initial commands on my part?

When I install the second parallel port, do I need to give the system any commands in order for it to recognize the new port?? If so, then what do I do?

Thanx.
 

A:Installing memory

The memory chips will be detected automatically. Make sure that you have discharge any possible static you may have built up by touching the metal frame of the computer or better yet use a static wrist strap. Tiny amounts of static,less than you could feel, can destroy mem chips. The chips should be installed next to the ones already there, no open socket between.
The port may or may not be found automatically. If not, you may need to go into cmos setup program to turn on the port.

I want to upgrade my memory, but I thought I'd better ask for some advice first before I do this since it will be my first time. I already have 32 MB of Sdram and I have one more slot open for another stick of memory. Is it possible to put a 64MB stick of memory in that slot or will I have to forget about 64MB and go with another stick of 32MB? I've read some about memory banking but I have forgotten. I will appreciate any comments, thanks----Dale

A:installing memory

You should be able to put any size stick in the free slot. Guess I should expand a little on this. Some motherboards are touchy about size and slot location but in general you should not have a problem adding a 64 along side the 32, worse that could happen is you would need to put the 32 in the open slot and the new stick where the 32 is now, but probably not. Newer motherboards will darn near accept anything, using a 128 with a 32 in the other machine.

Turn off the power, open the case and install it in the appropriate memory slot. If you used their online memory configurator it should work just fine. All the memory is keyed so it will only go in one way and should snap into it's slot and lock in with the retaining clips.

A:installing memory

The memory you are trying to put in is incompatable, both physically and electrically.

There is a locating slot that doesnt line up, to stop you trying to do the very thing you are doing (and it works!)

DDR RAM and SD RAM dont mix, the PC would die horribly if you could fit the 133 SD stick in (the DDR is probably 266 or 333 MHz, the older stuff only 133 MHz)

Its possible that permanent damage could even occur if you managed to get it to fit.

Hey TG,
Just curious, is there a particular type of memory I should install on a particular computer? I have 128, but my resources are low and instead of having 'puter crash, I was thinking installing memory would do the trick. I'm seeing all sorts of different memory sticks for sale but not sure which is right........can you give me a clue?
Also, to install......is there an old post that would give me the how-to's?

Computer:
Operating System Microsoft Windows 98
OS Service Pack None
Internet Explorer 6.0.2800.1106 (IE 6.0 SP1)
Motherboard:
CPU Type Intel Pentium II, 400 MHz (4 x 100)
Motherboard Name Dell Computer Corp. OptiPlex GX1 400MTbr+
Motherboard Chipset Intel 82440BX/ZX
System Memory 28 MB (PC100 ECC SDRAM)
BIOS Type Phoenix (08/01/01)
Communication Port ECP Printer Port (LPT1)

Thanks in advance.
 

A:installing memory

go curcial to look up the correct memory for your system. Being you have 100mhz ECC installed now I would get the same type as not to mix and match.

Low resources however are not a symptom of insufficent memory installed thought, but more of two many programs running at the same time.

Hi everybody :

I have a Gigabyte DS3H Motherboard. And I want to install new memory chips. According to the manual, I SHOULD install two chips (in two slots) to be able to activate the "Dual Channel " function.
NOTE : I'm running Window 7 32-bit.
With 32-bit Windows, the OS will only recognize 3 Gb maximum.
My question is.....can I use just one 4Gb Memory module instead of two 2Gb Modules ? The reason I ask is that most of the memory modules sold now start at 4Gb.

Thanks,
garystan

I am attempting to re-install the memory on my Dell Optiplex GX110 after removing it to see what kind it was and which DIMM and which amount to consider the possibility of an upgrade. It came out quite easily; simply opening the tabs pushed it out.

I can't, however, get it back in. I can fit it into the slot, but it won't go down, even when I push the tabs down while pressing on the memory. At first I discovered this was because I had it in reversed, but now the notches match up and it doesn't go any further. What am I missing here? What is the proper procedure for installing memory on an Optiplex GX110?

Thanks,
Jacob

Ground your hands to the metal case then push on the locking tabs at either end of your existing RAM and move them outwards away from the RAM.

Pull out the existing sticks then make sure you align the notch in your new memory with the proper place in the socket.

Now firmly and evenly push the memory stick down and if you push far enough the locking tabs will come up and lock again.

Don't touch the contact part of your memory with your hands.

Hi. Recently I got a Toshiba NB305 from an Uncle of mine, and it came with Windows 7 starter. I decided to upgrade it to Ultimate, seeing as I have the CD. I copied the contents of the CD to a flash and transferred it to the Toshiba. When I opened the setup.exe, a small window popped out and gave a prompt for a split second. I had to take a screenshot to get what the prompt was. It was 'Program too big to fit in memory'. I've tried stopping some processes that weren't necessary in order to free up computer memory usage but it didn't work.
I really want to get this OS up to Ultimate, any help please? Thanks in advance

It would be wiser to test the memory rather then booting Windows as you can seriously corrupt your Windows installation. I'd recommend using Memtest86+: http://www.memtest.org/

The new stick may not be compatible, did you check on any Memory manufacturer's site's to see if they recommend it.

Here's one for you...
I originally had 2x 256M ram installed on my system and decided I'd like to bump it up to 1G so I purchased a Kingston 512M stick to install in the 3rd slot- it's an AD77 mobo so it only has the 3 slots. The 3 sticks are all PC3200 400DDR. However, now the cpu freezes on the windows xp welcome screen. So I took one of the 256M sticks out and it loads up fine. It also reads there is 768M ram on the system. I've tried putting the sticks in different combinations using the 3 slots but it only ever works if there are 2 sticks installed- adding the 3rd causes it to freeze. The system should support up to 2G ram so I don't know whats going on! Hope someone can help!!!

Any recommendations on type, size, brand etc.? Thankyou

A:Advice On Installing Memory Please

that is bullcrap about the matching processor amount...all you need to do is research what type of memory your motherboard can take, and how much...for example:
-My mobo can handle up to 2gb of SDRAM pc133 168 pin memory
-First start out with how much you want....I can use 1GB, easily because I know whaqt program I have running at all times, and always disable extra crap like kodak phto center and stuff like that....if you arn't really concious about how much memory you are using, I would go for 2GB, maybe 3....
-Then you have to make sure your motherboard supports this kind....(there are a few ways you can go about finding the product name of your mobo...eitehr take off the cover of your case, and look for a big printed on the board code, mine is D845HV...you can google what comes stock in a certain kind of computer...or you could search for a motherboard information program that will tell you everything that you need to know about specifying it....)
-One you know how much you want, and how much you can support, you can go about finding what kind you support...you can usually find this with how much you can support, as it will probably be in the form that I gave you in my example....
-Once you know how much, and what kind, shop around for the overall lowest price....
-High density ram is cheaper, but is very dense on the load that it carries, making it run a bit slower sometimes...also motherboards cannot always handle high density ram so check...
-Low density Ram is going to take up more room (slots), which can be vital if you have only 3 slots like me...Alot have 4+
-Vista also supports using a flash drive as Ram, although it is usually significantly slower, it can still work towards keeping a program stable (keeping your system from freezing up)
-To use a flash drive as Ram, plug it into a 2.0 usb port, wait for auto play, and at the bottom there will be an option called Readyboost, click on it, and select how much of the drive you would like to use as *Virtual ram*...This is then unaccessable for file use, but can be very helpful when running large programs all at once, or keeping those quick launch icons (the kodak and other crap) running without using up valuable system RAM
Hope this helps

BTW, if you are running 3 GB of ram, and still slow, think about going to start=>and in search type msconfig...it will bring up a utility manager, and you should go to the bootup tab, and disable all of the useless programs automatically started at startup

hi people,i have just installed a 512mb memory card on my mums pc with is a packard bell imedia 1328.the memory stick i purchased was a ddr2 533 mhz (pc2-4200)but now i realise it may have been a ddr pc3200 stick i should have got,but the one i got fits in the holder ok though.would this cause the computer not to send a signal to the monitor and is there any type of difference in the two memory sticks i have mentioned?thanks for your help
 

A:cannot get display on screen after installing new memory

Memory types PC2-3200 and PC2-4200 are both 240pin memory cards. They have the same pinout. You can use one for the other, but using the faster one may not actually run faster if the motherboard can not utilize the extra speed OR IF you are concurrently using the mix of slower memory with the faster memory.

As far as I can tell (looking at PB's website), it looks like your computer can use just a single or both (there appear to be only two memory slots) at the time.

Besides, if you had the "other" PC3200" memory, a 184 pin memory card, it just should not fit. So, I am pretty sure that your memory appears to be the correct pinout.

As for your question: "would this cause the computer not to send a signal to the monitor"
Perhaps, if the memory card is bad.

Put your old memory card back in, all by itself. If it works, whereas just having the new memory card in, by itself, does not work; I would then guess the new memory card is bad.

both brands need to be rated rated to run at the same voltage

these are not

just run the corsair

Hi,

This problem has been driving me crazy for some time now and I can't find any solutions anywhere.

It is a new build and it runs fine with 2Gb of memory installed, but as soon as i insert a second memory stick it goes through BIOS and 2-5 seconds of the Windows Logo before a bluescreen flashes by and the screen goes black.
It will reboot and perform a Windows repair but with the same result.

Same thing happens if I install my graphics card.

Any help would be highly appreciated, since running on 2Gb of memory and on-board graphics isn't my plan

Regards,
Lamox

A:New build, BSOD when installing more than 2Gb of memory

Welcome
Your post, itself, hints at the problem as do your reports

Run for 8 passes.
Then test each stick in a good slot for 6 passes.
If you have dual channel, the results may be incorrect, if shows pass.

Can I put a PC-133 memory card in my computer that takes
DDR2 240-PIN DIMM 64x64
Speed Description
PC2-5300 / 667 MHz Non-ECC, Unbuffered Units
?
 

A:Installing older memory card

No, not unless you use a large hammer and have no expectation of the PC running again.

They are different pin format and vastly different speeds. The RAM would not actually fit.

i SURE AM A SLOW LEARNER- (ALOS DYSLEXIC-DOESNT HELP!)
HAVE COMPAQ 12XL125 LAPTOP AND NEED MORE MEMORY TO RUN MY EXTRAS LIKE CD-WRITER AND PROGRAMS-
BOUGHT 128MB (HIGHEST) MEMORY BOARD DIRECT FROM COMPAQ-
WARNING CAME IN PACKAGE SAYING TO DOWNLOAD ALL DATA BEFORE INSTALL JUST INCASE- WELL, IS IT 'JUST INCASE'?
OR, DO i HAVE TO- THERE IS TOO MUCH AND iM HAVING TROUBLE W/ A DRIVE-FLOPPIES, AND CD-WRITER NEEDS THAT MEMORY- CAN I JUST STICK THAT BOARD IN SLOT AND GO? WILL I DEFINATELY LOSE DATA? AND IF SO ALL, OR MOSTLY WHAT?
i KNOW I HAVE TO UNPLUG AND BE CAREFUL OF SHOCK- BUT HOPEFULLY THAT'S IT-
THE SOONER THE BETTER SO I CAN GET ONTO MAKING BACK-UPS AS i HAVE ALREADY HAD ONE PREVIOUS FAILURE LOSING ALL MY WRITINGS AND PICTURES- VERY SAD!

THANKS SO MUCH!
