My laptop ram is 1GB. i want to extand it. which type of ram is good for it and what is its cost?


Dear! If its RAM is not fixed and it has facility to replace the RAM, you can extend it but if the RAM is fixed on motherboard you can not extend it. There are two types of RAMs: (i) DDR1 (ii) DDR2
1GB DDR1 costs upto $30 and 1GB DDR2 costs upto $20, there may a chance of $3-$4 in prices.
Now you choose that which type of RAM your laptop has?

I need to upgrade the RAM on my motherboard. I have a 512mb at the moment. Can I add 3 more 512mb as there are 4 slots? Will they work together or do I need to purchase one bigger card?


You can add 3 x 512 MB, or 1 x 512 MB and 2 x 1 GB. Check if you need DDR1 or DDR2.

If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If thishelps or solves the issue, please rate it and give a testimonialfor my response.

I am going to upgrade ram to 1 gb. can i use ddr2 1 gb ram to upgrade .motherboard is microstar model ms-6526 ver: 2 . present ram is ddr1 400 MHz, 512 MB


If your computer has two RAM slots on the motherboard, i would recommend trying it. The computer will run on the 512MB stick alone and just not recognise the other stick. And if it works it works.

I have searced for support documentation and came up with none for the original MS-6526

I run my original version MS-6526 on a 512MB PC2300 (DDR1) and a 512MB PC3200 (DDR1) and it runs just fine for games and videos.

Personally I would recommend trying the DDR2 first and if that fails, return the card and get a DDR1 card. They are expensive, but at least they work.

Will ibm rev1.6 motherboard will support DDR2 RAM ??????


Check the RAM slots -- in the "channel", there are small vertical "blocks", so that only *ONE* type of RAM (SDRAM, DDR1, DDR2, DDR3) will match-up the "slots" amidst the gold pins on the RAM.

Given that it's a ThinkCentre/NetVista motherboard at 400 Mhz:

with a Pentium 4 CPU, it's very-likely that it _only_ supports DDR1 RAM -- it's simply too old to support DDR2.

Few questions about RAM memory?


Solution:



i)  LOW DENSITY modules have 100% compatiility with ALL systems and ALL chipsets.
    HIGH DENSITY modules only have 10% compatibility

    here compatablity means LOW DENSITY RAM are accepted by all system(100%)  or any make           system.. HIGH DENSITY RAM are accepted by 10% by only some system or computers...


ii) in order to check system performance or amount of Computer RAM usage press the ctrl+alt+del
   simultaneously a new window(window task manager) will appear showing:

    CPU usage: showing the amount of CPU or processor utilized at that particular time.
    PF usage: showing the amount of RAM memory utilized at that particular time.
    Physical Memory: showing Total RAM Memory, Available Ram memory....

iii) baiscally they are two types of RAM they are:

    DDR1:which is older one supported by older system  or older mother boards which is costlier
    DDR2: which is latest one supported by all new system or new mother boards which is less                         costlier

    DDR: double data rated ram......which will send data at a double rate compared to SD RAM

iii) here color doesnt matter, these slots either support DDR1 or DDR2 but not both at a time
    
    DDR1 has 184 pins or gold plated pinssss... on the edge of the RAM
    DDR2 has 240 pins 

    so difference doesnot allow DDR2 to placed in DDR1 motherboards or vice versa...

iv) it does have anything to do with no of chips on the RAM but they only differ whether it is DDR1 OR DDR 2(DDR2 are much faster than DDR1)

NOTE: whatever may the the RAM, each RAM has FSB(called Frequency...) which determines the frequency of rate at which data is tranferred from RAM to processor(CPU)  usually in MHZ such as FSB 300, 400, 200 , 333...................

more the FSB the faster data is transferred to the processor(CPU)

dont worry even RAM with less FSB's work well with the processor....having 1 GB RAM or 2 GB RAM is engouh, it only matters with the speed of CPU ... but not RAM......

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.
