What type of RAM is used, and how to up grade


Hi,

The type of ram used is PC3200 DDR SDRAM. The maximum ram supported is 2GB

There are 2 slots on the motherboard each supporting 1 x 1GB (gigabyte) each.

If you want to upgrade to the maximum amount of ram then you must buy 2 x 1GB PC3200 DDR SDRAM.

To upgrade the ram take the side panel off the computer and remove the existing ram from the motherboard like in this picture.>>>

All you have to do is remove the ram and insert your new ram. Make sure that you clean the the slots of any dust as the dust can cause boot issues.


Good luck.

How to upgrade RAM of Compaq SRS 110 NX


You can buy a RAM from your computer from any dealer. You have to check its model, suppose DDR 2 or DDR 3 as same as your previous installed ram. You have to also check that which processor's speed it supports. e.g.- 2.9 Ghz, 3.0 Ghz etc. You can also simply give your CPU to any dealer, then they upgrade your RAM.

Cpu speed for ddr 400 ram


cpu speed has nothing to do with ram. they are completely independant. ram speed is important to the FSB (front serial bus) this is the speed at which your motherboard communicates with the devives attached to it. cpu speed refers to how fast a cpu can process info. or how fast it "thinks". most motherboards have the capability of upgrading cpu's. your mobo (motherboard will support the following cpu's:
any pentium 4 up to 3.0 ghz
it supports the following ram
ddr (nott ddr 2 or 3) up to 2 gigs (1 gig each slot) of 533mhz speed (or less)
it also supports up to 2 gigs of sdram either pc133 or pc100
you are using 400 speed ram as you stated i would upgrade to a 533 speed ram as it will be faster, but this is not necessary. as for the cpu just get any P4 (pentium 4) that is 3.0 ghz or less and it will work.

What CPU could I fit to the Amilo pro V2010 to improve performance


Before you consider changing the CPU consider upgrading the RAM you can install 2GB of DDR in that laptop it will certainly run faster.
Be carful to get DDR not DDR 2, go onto the crucial RAM site and run the test software it will tell you exactly what you need and how much it will cost around £60.
If you haven’t got 2GB in the laptop I would certainly try that first.
Hope this suggestion helps.

I have a Gateway FMC 901 and I want to update the motherboard to todays standards Is it possible?


To the contrary, the MCE Gateway 901x media center PCs cannot be upgraded via a new motherboard. The board's size was custom built for gateway and it doesn't comply to ATX standards. The best you can do is buy a 3.4ghz Socket 478 Pentium 4 Processor. I have tested the Prescott with 1mb of cache and Hyperthreading technology. I have not tested (nor will I because it is as of 2009, a $350 processor) the 3.4ghz Pentium 4 Extreme Edition with 2mb cache.

Best bet is to max the processor to 3.4ghz for $60 and spend $75 on 2gb or RAM. The system will now run Vista Media Center edition, TV Pack 2008, and can accomodate a HVR 1600 HD capture card. That is as far as this system can go until it goes to the boneyard.
