Can I install DDR3 RAM in the additional RAM slot in my note...

Q: Can I install DDR3 RAM in the additional RAM slot in my note...

It came with a DDR4 RAM. I want to add a RAM in the 2nd slot. I contacted the tech support and they said that I can install DDR3 RAM in the additional slot. But the shop from where I bought advised me not to do so. Notebook : HP Pavilion AU-084tx.

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.)

Hello my old laptop Acer aspire 7551g had 4gb DDR3 1333.

The new one is Lenovo G500s with DDR3 1single 1666 so i have one slot left.

So DDR3 1333 + DDR3 1666 will work or not?

The goal is to have 8gb ram so i can cheak if Watch Dogs still lag when driving (i know one stupid game not worth it?)

What i want to know is is it safe to try?

So thank you for answears.

A:Using ddr3 ram on ddr3l slot

Hi: Most likely the DDR3 memory either won't work, or you will get a BIOS message reporting you are using the wrong voltage memory and to replace it with the right memory. I don't think you will wreck the PC, but can't say for sure. But I can tell you, it isn't a good idea.

Hi, as the title says my motherboard is a bit old which is ASRock G41C-S and its maximum support of RAM front side bus is 1333MHz, so i'm running 4GB of ram with two different modules one is A-Data 2GB DDR3 1333MHz and another is Apacer 2GB DDR3 1333MHz and i've ran them together for a year without any issues at all but i found that my PC wasn't running at full speed compared to other PC's with the same specifications so i'm planning to buy Kingston HyperX Blu 1600MHz running at 1.65V and now i don't know if my mobo will accept this kind of memory to run it stable without any issues. So please give me an answer and thank you so much in advance

A:Would RAM DDR3 1600MHz 1.65v run on 1333MHz 1.5V slot ?

If it's 1333mhz, then that's as fast as it will run. 1600mhzetc will only run @ 1333mhz with your board.

I wanted to upgrade my RAM with a 4GB stick running instead of old 2 GB DDR3 stick

bought a new ram for my Gigabyte GA-G41M-Combo motherboard, when i plug my 4gb ram the pc doesnt boot
This 4GB DDR3 RAM Kingston Technology Company - Kingston Memory Search - Search Results for: KVR13N9S8/4

how am i supposed to make this RAM work on my motherboard

Please Help Me

A:how to make DDR3-1333 DDR3 4 GB work on my Gigabyte G41-M Combo mobo?

I'm afraid that RAM is not supported, I downloaded the Memory Support List from: (and attached)

GIGABYTE - Motherboard - Socket 775 - GA-G41M-Combo (rev. 2.0)

Also, you are better off getting 2 sticks, since:
Your motherboard:

Features Dual channel memory architecture, best to use two sticks to take advantage of the Dual channel, should be identical RAM sticks.
Multi-channel memory architecture - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
That motherboard supports very few 4 gig sticks at all and fact you have to overclock to handle 1333, I would just buy one step lower: 2 * 2 gig 1066 sticks.

A:Have new MB,CPU,PSU,DDR3, WIN 7, ready 2 install but keep XP as well?

This could work. Your old motherboard is using the nvidia ata drivers in ide mode (most likely) and if you were to attempt to boot your xp install as is, windows would crash with a stop error. If you wanted to keep the same xp install, the easiest thing to try would be enabling msahci and pciide before you swap the hardware over.

Open regedit and navigate to these keys

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Msahci\Start
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\System\CurrentControlSet\Services\Pciide\Start

Set the start values to 0

Check in your bios on your new motherboard to see what mode your sata drives are running in. AHCI or IDE (Ideally you would be running AHCI)
Try booting your xp drive with AHCI. If all goes well then it will sort itself out and install all the correct drivers for the new setup. If not switch your drives from AHCI to IDE in the bios and try again. Then all you have to do is reactivate.

Next set your 300gb drive as the boot drive in your bios and install windows 7 on it. During the install it should detect the other windows drive and add it to the boot menu. If not it's easy to add afterwards with "EasyBCD".

Hello folks, simple question here,
I have one note 2007 installed on my pc and want to just make a small tweak to it that is a nuicannce in my opinion more than an atcual problem. What i want to do is when onenote closes (meaning the main application) i want to have its tray application close itself. Trust me, it is useful and i have been reviewing this application and like it for starting college but find it annoying how i have the tray application open even when the program is closed. If someone could tell me how to do this it would be appreciated. And i do know about disabling the icon but i dont want to do that as the tray application i find has plenty of usefull features.

A:Lenovo Y50-70 : Should I install DDR3 or DDR3L RAM...

Hi LV7 , 
 
 
Greetings . 
 
You should get a DDR3L as per the your models product specifications :
16GB max / PC3-12800 1600MHz DDR3L, non-parity, dual-channel capable, two 204-pin SO-DIMM sockets 
 
OEM recommended parts all DDR3L based from the hardware manual FRU listing (item 11 , page 91)
scanners would be basing it on other device specification like CPU and chipset only but again compatibility on its overall performance and BIOS would be a usual issue. it woul either boot with IRQ errors or just beeps on you . 
You may check your installed RAM physically and read the label , as sample processor i5-4200H Processor also show Memory Types DDR3L 1333/1600 .
 
Hope this answered your query .
Update us .
 
Regards

Is that a G41M-Combo Rev 1.3?

If so, it supports both DDR2 and DDR3.

But you cannot mix DDR2 and DDR3. All RAM must be one or the other.

The specific RAM you mentioned is not listed on the qualified RAM list, but that doesn't mean it won't work.

From the Gigabyte web site for the G41M-Combo Rev 3:

DDR3:

2 x 1.5V DDR3 DIMM sockets supporting up to 8 GB of system memory (Note 1)
Dual channel memory architecture
Support for DDR3 1333(O.C.)/1066/800 MHz memory modules

DDR2:

2 x 1.8V DDR2 DIMM sockets supporting up to 8 GB of system memory (Note 1)
Dual channel memory architecture
Support for DDR2 1066(O.C.)/800/667 MHz memory modules

(Note: Mixed mode, populating DDR2 and DDR3 memory modules simulta- neously is not supported. Go to GIGABYTE's website for the latest supported memory speeds and memory modules.)

Bitlocker isn't a download, it's built into Windows.

BitLocker Drive Encryption - Internal Data Hard Drives - Turn On or Off
But notice the Warning in the tutorial -

BitLocker is only available in the Windows 7 Ultimate and Enterprise editions.

You appear to have Home Premium, so Bitlocker wouldn't be available in your Edition. Might look into something like TrueCrypt or similar as an alternative. TrueCrypt

A:Trying to Install Additional HDDs

Check the jumper charts again. If it is a CS cable, try CS. Some drives also have different jumper settings for when there is another drive present and when there isn't. Check both charts and don't assume the jumpers for both follow the same pattern.

Check BIOS, too. Look in general at drive settings, but especially at boot priority to be sure that one of those drives is not set to boot before your SATA.

Hi K, and welcome to TSG.

Assuming the monitor speakers are getting their audio through a stereo 3.5 mm mini-plug that is plugged into the audio output jack on the the back of the computer and the speakers you wish to add have the same type of plug, you should be able to use both sets of speakers at the same time. You would need a splitter cable with one 3.5 mm mini-plug feeding two 3.5 mm mini-jacks.

A:DDR3 PC3 12800 or DDR3 PC3-10600

Hi Monster212

According to the manufacturer's website specs on your motherboard (MSI Global ? Mainboard - P55M-GD41), your computer should support the faster RAM (when overclocked apparently), and therefore theoretically should acquire faster performance in the 5 - 10% range..

Hope that helps!

Alright guys...so newegg just informed me that I won the following memory in a Facebook contest: Crucial Ballistix 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 with heat spreaders and built in thermal sensor

The wording on the contest is vague, so I'm not sure if I'm getting 4 or 8GB of it. Right now, I have 6 GB of Crucial DDR3 1333 RAM in my comp. I was just wondering how much performance, if any, I would lose by replacing it with the RAM that I won (assuming they only send me 4GB).

A:4 GB of DDR3 1600 or 6GB of DDR3 1333?

It depends what your doing with it. If your not doing anything memory intensive then probably hardly any, 4GB is about the sweet spot with Win 7, and the access speed on that RAM is quicker

When I try to install Fax Services and IIS as additional components in WinXP, the installation stops with the message saying that it needs to find a particular file. (FXSCFGWZ.DLL for Fax Services and ADMXPROZ.DLL for IIS) I can find that file on the Windows CD in the i386 directory with an underscore in the extension indicating, I think, a compressed file. I can also find what appears to be the uncompressed file in C:\Windows\System32\dllcache. However, no matter which place I point the installer to, it just keeps coming back and telling me that it needs to find the file.

I've also tried copying the file from the \dllcache directory to the Windows32 directory, but that doesn't help.

A:Question about PCI-e slot below dual slot video card

My opinion ...

Yes, setting up like that will have an impact. The air flow to your GPU will be restricted so it will more than likely run hotter than it did. It may still stay withing recommended specs, but it will run hotter.

The motherboard has onboard sound (RealtekŪ ALC892 8-Channel High Definition Audio CODEC ), any particular reason why you don't use that? Onboard sound is perfectly good for gaming and the like now, its not like older machines where you needed a dedicated card for decent quality. In my opinion, you only need a dedicated card if you are doing a lot of detailed audio work (mixing, remastering and other specific audio work). This would totally remove the issue.

Depends a lot on how much RAM your applications need. Triple channel is slightly faster, but if you. Err. Run two instances of Crysis, then you might need 8 GiB so the other solution is 'better'.

The type of memory doesn't matter, its the type of interface the computer supports among a few other things to watch for.

You likely have a PCI-Express slot, as long as it a x16 slot it doesn't really matter if its a version 1.1 or 2.0 slot.

Is this for your Dell or another computer? Whats you budget and what needs do you have for the video card?

You can't add a slot to a motherboard.

How old is this computer that it doesn't have a PCI slot? Those have been around for quite a while. Are you sure it doesn't have one? Even AGP is not new technology.

EDIT: After seeing your other thread, are you asking if you can purchase an AGP or PCI video card? That's a totally different question, and the answer would be yes depending on which slot your motherboard has. How much it costs depends on what you plan to use the computer for. A simple one is cheap, and high-end gaming cards can get expensive.

I also noticed that one board listed ECC or non-ECC in the specs. I'm sure that ECC is more expensive...is it worth it?

When you overclock your system there are several ways of doing it. One is to increase the speed of the Bus, meaning it's a synchronous overclock. This means that all the devices controlled by the Bus speed are going to run faster than they were intended to, including the RAM. If your RAM was barely fast enough to keep up at the regular clock speed it would likely give you errors when running at a higher speed. One way to solve this is to buy RAM rated faster than necessary. When you overclock the Bus the RAM has no trouble keeping up.

This also avoids the possible downside of an asynchronous overclock, one where CPU end of the Bus gets boosted but the rest of the system stays at stock speed.






Quote:

ECC memory is used mostly in servers. Unless something has changed (or I'm just flat-out wrong ) it actually runs a tad slower than non-ECC RAM, mainly because it needs an extra step to check the data passing through it before it gives it the okey-dokey. Unless you have a specific reason for it, ECC is unnecessary.

Max Render Core 400MHz
If you need more information please ask

A:Where can I get DDR3?

It support both DDR2 & DDR3?

With DDR3, it really will only be a benefit if you can get DDR3 1333 or higher.

In the 800/1066 range, DDR2 will perform better due to lower latencies.

But to answer your question, any online retailers such as Newegg, Tigerdirect.
Sometimes stores such as Bestbuy carry some.

A:ddr3 ram help

I'd suggest going to one of the major RAM suppliers like Crucial. You can plug your computer info into their "memory advisor tool" and it will tell you exactly what your computer is capable of handling. Generally speaking it's usually better to not mix and match but to get matched pairs of RAM (2x2GB, 2x4GB, etc.) Once you know what your computer can handle and the exact memory specifications, you can shop around for the lowest prices. Just as an example, a few days ago Newegg had 8GB DDR3 RAM (2x4GB) for under $50.

ok i've been browsing around the net looking for my next upgrade component and ddr3 ram has been knawing at me, i want to get it but am looking for some feedback from others who have it or have used it to let me know if it is worth it i am looking at getting
OCZ 4GB (2x 2GB) DDR3 PC3-10666 Reaper HPC Edition Dual Channel Kit Memory
my motherboard supports this so i guess it's just a case of getting warm and fuzzy feedback from people who might recommend it before i shell out 150 quid for it, as i could get the ddr2 1066 ram instead if the warm and fuzzy feeling isn't there.

thanks in advance for any replies!!!

Hi All,

I was just on the Intel site looking at the i7-950 CPU i have already ordered and in its memory specs, it says 800/1066. What does this mean to someone like me who has ordered ddr3-1333 conforming to the MB specs?

I wasn't aware to look at the CPU memory support, does this mean with this CPU, I must use 1066 ddr3 or will 1333 be OK?

From Intel, Specs for memory for i7-950:

Attachment 95866

What does this mean??? Do I need to go with 1066 in order to achieve triple channel?

Thnx in advance,

A:i7-950 ddr3 ram specs, ...Please Help

It's OK, although your system may not default to DDR3 1333. Manually adjusting the RAM settings in the Bios should get you there. What motherboard are you considering?

I am using DDR3 1600 with my I7-920, although I've had to adjust the BIOS settings to get it to play properly. Intel doesn't officially support six DDR3 1600 with its X58 chipset and I& CPUs, but I got it to work by backing off the timings a little.

Hi all,

I currently have 3Gb of DDR2 memory, in 2 slots (1x 1GB, 1x 2GB) - however i wanted to increase this to 4GB or even 6GB. Basically i was wondering if the following factors would affect my choice:

1-Is there a limit of how much RAM i can have in my motherboard?
2-Can i cross between DDR3 and DDR2 memory in the two slots, or do i have to keep the same type in each? - (and also, whats the difference between the two)

Thank You

Anyone, feel free to correct me if I'm wrong. =)

Yes the DDR2 modules and the DDR3 modules both have 240 pins. The keyways are in different locations so you can only install DDR3 modules in a DDR3 motherboard. DDR's highest speed is 400MHz. DDR2's highest speed is 800MHz. DDR3 highest speed is 1000MHz

You know I love the quality of Corsair products and I won't buy anything except Corsair power supplies but the ram they have is such a rip off. Dominator ram is great except for the price really. When you compare the Dominator line to the Reaper line from OCZ you are getting the same thing for much less from OCZ.

If Corsair lowered the price to something more competitive I might consider buying from them but as it stands I will stick with OCZ for ram.

I opened up my PC today and I have DDR3 PC3-10600, so does that mean my memory bus speed is 165MB/s?

Also does that mean I can only install other DDR3 if it is PC3-10600 ?
Or can I install faster or slower? or what?
 

A:DDR3 Speeds?

DDR3 PC3-12800(DDR3-1600) has a speed of 1600 MHz.

DDR3 PC3-10600(DDR3-1333) has a speed of 1333 MHz.

DDR3 PC3-8500(DDR3-1066) has a speed of 1066 MHz.

The larger the number, the faster the memory speed.

If you mix module speeds in the same computer, they will all run at the speed of the slowest module(s).
