Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Actually depends more on how good the memories are. You can but not advisable. If ever you are forced to do so, the 400 wouold shift down to 333 and that is when the trouble starts, BSODs. If during Windows installation, the install would have a hard time completing without errors. In some instances, on boot, "NTLDR missing" message. For mission critical machines, gaming or 24/7 servers, better not.

Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa. Happy Holidays.

Have acer veritron 5600g does it take high density or low density memory


Your computer can take either DDR333 MHz or DDR400MHz (pc2700, or pc3200) NON ECC memory. Even though it can take either you need to use matching modules/ not mixed. DDR400 or pc3200 memory is faster but these are also backward compatible. The memory will only run as fast as your FSB (front side bus) rated frequency.

ASUS P4S533-MX MOTHERBOARD FAILED TO RECOGNIZE DDR400/DDR333 RAM


In you case compatibility is your problem or your memory needs a clean up. First clean up the memory's pins. Use a pencil eraser. Then try only one by one so that you will know if there is a problem in each memory. Insert one of the memory then turn on your PC. If it boot up or it is okay try the other one. Then if it is also okay, try both of it inserted and turn on your PC. If it not okay there is a compatibility problem. Make sure the brands are the same so the compatibility are never be a problem.

Where do i put he memory


From the manufacturer's web-site:

http://www.msi.com/index.php?func=proddesc&maincat_no=1&prod_no=557

look at the "green" slots in the picture of the motherboard.
That's where the RAM goes -- note that the RAM has a "notch" that is *NOT* in the "centre" of the stick; so, the RAM only fits *ONE* way into the slot.

On that web-page, it says:

• Supports six memory banks using three 184-pin DDR SDRAMs.
• Supports up to 3GB memory size.
• Supports DDR400/DDR333/DDR266/DDR200 SDRAM
Note: PC3200 (DDR400) maximum 4 banks only.

So, if you buy DDR400 RAM, the maximum is 2GB (2 sticks @ 1GB/stick); if you buy DDR33 RAM, the maximum is 3GB (3 sticks @ 1GB/stick).

ECS PT800CE-A 3.4 P4 HT CPU and DDR400 (PC3200) problems


I seem to be unable to find any information about what an ERAND error even is. No one is really identifying it on the net. One thing you may try though is to find out if the bios settings are maybe causing this. Is the system overclocked at all? Are the voltages correct? Maybe try resetting Bios to default settings and trying again.

Ddr ram for my motherboard


PC2100 is DDR266 memory. PC2700 is DDR333 memory. PC3200 is DDR400 memory All are backward-compatible with PC2100. Memory is designed to be backwards compatible, so generally you can safely add faster memory to a computer designed to run slower memory, but... your system will operate at the speed of the slowest memory module or system component. Keep in mind that the memory does need to be the same type, for example, SDRAM cannot be mixed with DDR, and DDR cannot be mixed with DDR2. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"

Memory Issues


PC2700 (DDR333) memory and PC3200 (DDR400) are backward-compatible with PC2100. Memory is designed to be backward-compatible, so generally speaking, you can safely add faster memory to a computer that was designed to run slower memory. However, your system will operate at the speed of the slowest module or system component (the "lowest common denominator" effect). One thing to keep in mind is that the memory does need to be the same type-for example, SDRAM cannot be mixed with DDR, and DDR cannot be mixed with DDR2. Let me know if you have any questions. Good Luck, Tim
