We have the memory you need. Memory-Up is committed to provide the best memory and excellent services for all of our customers. We know that sometimes it is a bit confusing to buy the correct type, speed, and capacity of memory for your system. Therefore we hope that these tips below would help you for buying the new memory.
Memory Upgrade Tips
What is Compatibility and Memory Density Issue?
Memory module can be composed using different type of memory chips and therefore created different type of density for the module. For instance, a 512MB PC2700 DDR SODIMM memory can be composed using eight 32x16(High Density 512Mb technology) memory chips or sixteen 32x8(Low Density 256Mb technology) memory chips. As the laptops are equipped with different memory chipsets, some older laptop (chipset) would have compatibility issue working with the modules that is built with the newer 512Mb technology. Using the Not-Compatible memory will result the laptop to either not boot or only recognizing half of the memory modules. Thus that is not the correct memory for your system. Our Memory Finder and Memory Scanner will help to eliminate those problems and find the correct memory for you. We guaranteed the memory to work or your money back.
How much memory do I need?
Here are some general descriptions for different type of users and the amount of memory they would need for their systems.
Normal User: The system is mainly used for checking e-mails, processing word/excel file, and web surfing. Suggestion: 512MB to 1GB of system memory.
Power User: The system is mainly used for playing computer games, editing photos/videos, running database queries, or multi-tasking environment. (Surfing web/Processing Word/Excel File/Listening to Music). Suggestion: 1GB to 2GB of system memory.
Super User: The system is mainly used for running large number of database queries, professional editing of photos/videos, heavy multi-tasking environment. Usually a server or a workstation would be considered as Super User due to the multiple accesses from users. Suggestion: 2GB and above of system memory.
How much memory and memory slot do I have with my system?
You can download our Memory-Scanner to find out the the amount of memory that you have and the memory slots that are available for upgrade.
How many memory module should I buy?
It is recommended to purchase one module with bigger capacity than two modules with smaller capacity. For instance, if you can buy either one 1GB memory module or two 512MB memory modules for your system, it is recommended to get one 1GB and leave the other memory slot empty for future upgrade if necessary.
Note: For systems that supports dual channel memory mode, although memory modules need to be installed in pairs to enable Dual Channel Memory Mode, we still recommended users to purchase one bigger module than two smaller modules since Dual Channel Memory Mode has only a minimal improvement in the actual system performance.
What if I want to mix different memory together?
Different sizes/speeds of memory can be used together as long as their specification are qualified by the systems. For instance, a laptop can use one 256MB and one 1GB of memory for the total of 1.25GB system memory. Mixing two different speeds of memory modules would result the system to run at the speed of the slower memory between the two modules. We recommend users to use our Memory Finder or Memory Scanner to find the correct memory for your system.
