    Thanks for the help but I see that the Motherboard only handles up to 533MHz so this could be the issue as well. Tried what was recommended by you but didn't work. Thanks anyhow.

Hi,

Make sure you have the RAM seated in slot #1, and that you do not have DDR RAM installed as well, as DDR2 with DDR RAM will not work. Also, make sure the RAM you bought is on the QVL (Qualified Vendors List) for that motherboard. I know I have had problems with ASUS motherboards and OCZ ram before.

QVL Found HERE

    I noticed that in the QVL as well, but on Crucials site and everywhere else I searched, they showed it was in fact compatible with PC6400. Perhaps they were wrong...

Installed 2 - 1 gb ddr2 pc2-5300 667 mhz dual channel memory kit matched pair memory sticks in my imac model 7,1 20 inch computer and it will not boot - I tried using them one at a time and neither worked...


I'm afraid it has to do with Apple's firmware on iMacs. A compatible 3rd party memory dealer is RAMJET.
From their website, you can see:
Apple Computers have proven too demanding for generic PC memory modules. Apple users have been forced to either pay Apple's high prices for upgrades, or buy 3rd party modules and be subjected to system crashes, boot failures, and sub-par performance. Worse still, most 3rd party vendors had no idea that Apple machines demanded a higher standard.
At Ramjet, we start with modules built 100% to Apple's original specifications, but we don't stop there. In our compatibility center, we have a comprehensive array of Apples, every platform built since 1996. Other memory companies try to test for Apple compatibility using generic RAM module testers, whereas we test our RAM in the same Mac you're upgrading.

Upgrade ram


In order to upgrade the ram of your desktop. First you have to check the ram specifications. If wrong specifications the desktop will not work. To check you have to remove the ram from your desktop by removing the screws behind your desktop. Open the lid and you will see the contents of your desktop. Besides of your processor, there is ram installed. Unclip it. Then bring that ram to the computer shops. Purchase a ram higher than the ram installed in your desktop. Afterwards, install the new ram to your desktop. Good luck.

Problem With ddr2 (Upgrade From ddr 512mb 400 to ddr2 1gb 800)


If it works fine with one stick of ram. Then it is the ram that is incompatible. You can try different settings but you may end up that the stick isn't compatible. Hope this helps let me know if you have any other questions.
Thank you,

I want to upgrade my lenovo laptop ram memory from 1gb to 2gb by adding one more stick. i currently have ddr2 PC2-5300(333MHz) latency 5 5 5 15 2T RAM my friends advised me that BLUE SCREEN ERROR occurs...


The rule of thumb with RAM is to always buy matching pairs. So instead of buying one new stick of 1gb its a better idea to buy two of the same kind and replace the one that is currently in there.

Before you even think about doing this, head over to lenovo's website and make sure that the computer is compatible with 2gb(from the speed of the ram im assuming that it will, I don't know of many DDR2 computers that cant have 2gb.) you may also be able to get ram that is faster if it is compatible, The website will have all this info.

Problem with upgrading my acer extensa 5620z memory to 4GB


Hi there.
I recommend you get another stick of SODIMM to replace what seems to be the faulty stick.
If you are using XP or Vista X86 (32bit) then the system will only recognize 2.8 - 3GB of memory, only 64bit operating systems recognize the full 4GB.


Good luck ad thanks for using FixYa!!

Can i install 1GB ddr2 on P4VMM2 Motherboard? i want to upgrade my pc; board is: can i P4VMM2 Motherboard; cani i use 1GB ddr2 on this and a 512 MB if vid.card? -jayvee_yao@yahoo.com


Hi,

Unfortunetly you cannot use ddr2 memory on this motherboard. The motherboard supports only PC2100/PC1600 DDR memory if you have version 8.1 of the motherboard. If you have v5.0 of the motherboard than you can only use sdram or ddr 266Mhz RAM. The same goes for the video card. The p4vmm2 motherboard is a rather old motherboard so I don't think it will payoff to upgrade the computer. It will be probably the best if you buy another computer.

best regards

Reg ram upgradation


Each memory slot on the C555NR can support a maximum of 1GB of RAM. There are actually 2 slots, but only one is easily accessible to you. By upgrading both the primary and secondary DIMMs, you could achieve a total of 2GB of memory but you would have to remove the 512mb chip that is already installed and replace it with 1GB (+1GB in the expansion slot as well.)

If you don't plan on taking the computer to a professional to be serviced, you will probably only want to upgrade the memory in the secondary slot located under the memory cover on the underside of the computer. It can handle a 1GB SODIMM.

FYI the memory is:
200 Pin DDR2-533 PC2-4200 SODIMM

Good luck!
