    yes, still only showing 1GB total for system. If I take it out, shows only 504 mb of the 512 stick. This is the first time I have bought a integrated mobo/cpu combo, and I have also ran into problems trying to get it to see a wireless card, so I have this pc hard wired for internet. The mobo specs call for DDR sdram, which I have installed.

    Is the original one also a 1GB? Some boards have to have the same size in both slots, but I do not know about yours. The info I saw online did not say it had to be.



    Try swapping the slots. Is it still only 1GB?

The only other thing I can think of is to go into the BIOS and see if there is any option about enabling both RAM slots. Other than that, I can only think that the 2 have to be the same size. All the specs say it should hold up to 2GB. Good luck.

I want to extend the RAM memory on my NEC computer. The motherboard is a GA-8SIMLNF Rev.1.1. It has two memory slots and presently one slot is occupied with a PC2100U-20330-A1 256 DDR 133 CL2 memory. I...


Check your manual (Gigabyte will have the manual on their website), to make sure your motherboard can handle 1Gb of Ram, or more. Generally in my experience, medium aged motherboards handle 1GB per slot, max (mine uses PC3200, not PC2100, and will take up to 4GB in its 4 slots).

You'll want PC2100 ram (easily searched for on http://www.newegg.com), either in 2x512MB sticks, or a single 1GB stick for your open slots (bringing you up to 1.25GB).

What ram msi n1996 accept


Sounds like that's an HP board, not MSI. According to the spec sheet here, it accepts two sticks of PC2100/PC1600, up to 1GB total. Note that if you are going to have two sticks in your laptop at the same time, they must be either PC2100 or PC1600. You cannot mix and match with memory.

Need to install PC2100 DDR 1GB ram upgrade


Hi,

The PC2100 DDR should be fine on that board. Each slot (which there are 3) will hold 1 gb of ram each. So finding 1GB PC2100 isn't the easiest, you can find 512mb, and put 1 512 in slot 1 and 1 in slot 2, There you'll have your 1GB.

Good Luck,

Don't forget to leave a rating.

Thanks
Mark

Would A 1GB PC3200 run in the K7s5a alone.


According to the specs the max amount of ram is 1 GB and max speed is pc2100 so a pc3200 would not run on it unless the board was able to clock the speed down of that single stick of ram.

I was not able to find the max amount of ram per slot on a quick search but most likely it would be 512 mb per slot for a max of 1 GB between the two DDR slots.

at Newegg you can find DDR 266 1 GB kits (2 x 512mb) which would get you the 1 GB of ram.

Is pc266 memory the same as pc2100


PC-2100 is the same as DDR 266MHz - you'll need to be sure it's the right number of pins/contacts on the DIMM though.

Intel D845GBV Motherboard Problem


PC1600 runs at 200MHZ and PC2100 runs at 266MHZ..

Since your motherboard only supports a max of 266MHZ, I would recommend that. (not to mention that PC1600 is pretty much obsolete)..

2nd, you motherboard supports a MAX of 2GB Total ram.. So, you could install 1GB + 256MB.. But why not go for 2xGB?

The price for a 1GB stick of PC2100 is around $75-125 CAN. Not soo cheap anymore...

The Maximum RAM you are able to install is a total of 2GB, So if you were to purchase 2 X 1Gb DIMMS at PC 2100 or faster then that would be the maximum. You could always install a single 2gb PC2100 DIMM Module.

Can't Install RAM in DDR2 and DDR3 DIMM slots


You cannot use DDR and DDR2 ram at the same time, because its always been like that (ie, no SD and DDR, or SD and RIMM)

What you should do is switch to all DDR2 sticks.
