Will a DDR3 graphic card work as it should work on a DDR2 motherboard or ram


Add more RAM
If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the
Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.

First you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system.

You should always ask for a guarantee on the compatibilitybefore making any purchase and try to buy for working pairs if possible.
computer users often get confused when assembling or upgrading their first computer. While the most common error is made when distinguishing system memory, RAM, from hard drive space, gaming computers have an extra wrinkle to worry about.

Graphics cards use memory separately from the system memory mounted on the motherboard. Some graphics cards use the more typical DDR standard, though it's permanently attached to the graphics card circuitboard, while others use the new GDDR standard.

For the most part, the internals of the graphics card aren't relevant to the rest of the computer it's all about the connection slot.What Is DDR Memory?


DDR, or "Double Data Rate," is the standardized random access memory format for most desktop and laptop computers.
DDR RAM comes in different generational standards: DDR, DDR2, DDR3 and the newer DDR4.

RAM chips, known as DIMMs, come in only one format, as do the DIMM slots on motherboards, so a DDR3-compatible motherboard memory slot can accept only DDR3 RAM DIMMs RAM that uses an earlier or later standard is incompatible.
GDDR Memory and Graphics Cards


Modern graphics cards use a modified memory standard called GDDR, short for Graphics Double Data Rate. While similar, GDDR and DDR memory is not the same:

Most importantly, GDDR memory is integrated into the graphics card and cannot be removed. Some older graphics cards use DDR, DDR2 and DDR3 memory, but this is also integrated into the card.

Graphics cards of varying power come with different kinds of RAM as of the date of publication, most cards feature GDDR4 or GDDR5 memory

Graphics Card Motherboard Connections
Discrete desktop graphics cards are mounted inside a computer case and plugged directly into the motherboard.

Three standard connections are used for graphics cards: PCI-Express (the most common and powerful), PCI and AGP.

It is this connection that determines how much data can be shared between the graphics card and the other system components, such as the CPU, the system RAM and the hard drive.

The expansion slot standard is the primary function for determining whether or not a graphics card is compatible with any given computer:

If your motherboard has a PCI-E slot, it's compatible, if not ideally so, with all PCI-E graphics cards.
Graphics Card Memory and System Memory Compatability

Memory is an important part of game performance, but graphics memory and system memory are two different things.

For better performance, it's best to have as much graphics memory AND system memory as possible, but the different standards used by the graphics card and the motherboard are largely irrelevant.

As long as the graphics card uses the correct expansion slot standard, it will work with the corresponding motherboard, regardless of its DDR version.

Check your computer's RAM cards. On them should be a serial number. Punch that number into a search engine (probably on someone else's computer since you need to open up your own) and see what type of system memory you have.

DDR3 is very common in newer computers, so having DDR2 memory may be your problem.

Windows XP RAM 1.9Gb but BearPaw 2448TA Pro nit started-error: Insufficient Memory


Check if your system matches the requirements of the software. I can't seen to find the model you have given but make sure you have enough hard drive space, make sure you don't have loads of applications and services open (Task manager will tell you) & make sure your graphics card has enough memory for the software to run.

Was wondering if it can be replaced with a better graphics card


This depends, mspolar1.

Depends on;

1) If it's a Desktop computer, or a Laptop computer.

Desktop computers may, or may not, come with Integrated Graphics.
For those desktop computers that do Not, a graphics adapter card is used.

(Graphics adapter card is also referred to as a Graphics Card, or Video Card)

Desktop computers that Do come with Integrated Graphics, will also have a graphics expansion slot to install a graphics card in.

2) Laptops generally just have Integrated Graphics, BUT there are some models that Do have a Graphics Card, and there is the possibility of upgrading to a better one.

The above relates directly to Toshiba desktop computers, and laptops, as well as a reference to all desktop, and laptop computers.

To explain Integrated Graphics:

Another name for Integrated Graphics is OnBoard Graphics.
ON the motherBOARD.

The graphics chip is soldered directly to the motherboard.

[ Chip and Chipset are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Integrated_Circuit

A graphics chip has a GPU on it,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU ]

Integrated Graphics borrows some of the system's resources.
The Processor and Ram Memory.

The Processor and Ram Memory are trying to take care of the Operating System, and the program that is being ran.
Two Operating System examples are Windows XP, and Windows 7. An example of a program that may be borrowing system resources heavily, is a game.

If an intense game is being played, the system resources cannot keep up with the demand for graphics, when Integrated Graphics is installed.
(Slow frame rates, or freezing. Poor graphics. Even with low settings)

A dedicated graphics card borrows very little of the system resources, or none at all.
A graphics card has it's own Processor, and Ram Memory.
(GPU and graphics ram memory)

In direct reference to Toshiba laptop's, post the laptop Model Number to see if the graphics can be upgraded.
There are some Toshiba laptops where this is possible, and some that are not.
(Post in a Comment)

The one's that use Integrated Graphics, and no dedicated graphics card, are the ones that cannot be upgraded.

I want to increase my graphic memory 128MB to 256MB. My system memory is 2GB, graphic card memory is 128MB and my graphic card is nVidia Geforce 7100 GS. Can I do that?


Yes why not, you can upgrade it to 512 even. But there are few things to check first. 1) Check your board got PCI-E slots or not (I guess this board doesn't have any)
2) Then you should have an AGP (Advance Graphic port) (Where you have attached this Card)
3) Check the AGP speed (2x,4x,8x)
4) Usually the AGP cards (The newer ones) are (4x,8x) compatibility.
Then Your board should have atleast 4x AGP Slot. I remember a software "Sis Sandra Pro" to check the AGP speed.
Afer checking and confirming these things, go to a shop and but a graphic card, (Which falls in the catagory i described above).
Better go for nVidia brand. But let me advise you, You should shift yourself on the PCI-Express PC's. On those PC's you can enjoy some gaming experience.
If i was helpful, kindly do Rate!

Looking to buy a new graphics card


You have a PCI Express slot to put a graphics card in. You can get a bigger graphics card to install in the machine but the power supply you are using in your comptuer is only 300 watts. If the specs of the memory card tell you to upgrade the power supply if its blow x amount watts you will have to do that in order to not run into problems. The good thing about e-machines is that you can upgrade the power supply at the same time. Usually they don't cost a lot of money.

You might have to get one thats around 425 to 475 watts depending on what the instructions tell you. If the new video card you are using is running a fan for cooling, chance are it will need an upgrade.

MSI Graphics card keeps making computer lock up unexpectedly. Plese Help!!!


You could have bad memory or you could have shorted the memory out with a static charge while you where handling the memory. Try to get one stick of memory you know is in working order and which is of the proper soecifications for your system such as un buffered or buffered registered or non registered . You will need to know the proper memory required for your motherboard by researching the manufactuers web site for your model number of your motherboard. Some dimm slots are set in order [1,2,3,4,] you will need to locate the number 1, dimm slot and make sure you insert the memory stick in that location . While doing this make sure you discharge you body from a static electric charge by using a wrist ground strap or touching the power dupply metal case befor handling any of your pc parts as you install them ! I hope this helps .
