    That depends on the motherboard. You should go to the manufacturers site and verify the highest speed that the motherboard can support. What brand motherboard?

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.

Abit NF7-s - hynix ram support problem


The problem probably is you mixing fsb speed, all the cards should
be pc3200 or all of them should be pc2700.

You don't mix.

I got intel 845 gl motherboard having ddr 256mb pc3200 ram. there are two slots availble. i want to upgrade


If you want to upgrade your ram, buy the same memory frequency like your current ddr 256 mb pc3200 memory. You can upgrade your memory up to 4GB and be sure they have all the same frequency to avoid system complications.

Pc5300 on pc3200 slot to upgrade msi 845gvm-v


PC5300 or more correctly "PC2-5300" and can work in a system that has "PC2-3200" RAM, and if mixed, they will operate at the speed of the slowest module. "PC-3200" RAM, however, is not compatible. PC-3200 is DDR SDRAM, having 184 pins. PC2-3200, and PC2-5300 are DDR2 SDRAM, having 240 pins. DDR and DDR2 modules are the same length,
but the pins on DDR2 are smaller and the keying notch is in a slightly different position.

You need to get the replacement ram all the same type ie - DDR or DDR2

And yes your motherboard should accept 2GB max

Upgrading ram


Hi reisrui, yes it is odd. (It's not the first time I have seen this.)
According to you're manual on page 6, under Specifications. The manual say's you can run up to a Max speed of PC3200 400MHz, 1GB in slot one. In slot 2 you can run a Max of 1GB of PC2700 333MHz in slot 2. Every motherboard I have come across that can run two different speeds of memory. The system will reduce the Max speed to the lower MHz memory speed. If you currently are using 512MB PC3200 400MHz in slot 1 & add 1GB of PC3200 400MHz into slot 2 for a total of 1.5GB of memory. The motherboard will ruduce the total memory over all speed to PC2700 333MHz. Motherboards alway run at the lower memory speed if two different speeds are presant.
I can’t be 100% sure of the 1GB of PC3200 400MHz into slot 2, will run at all! Or if it will be reduce down to 333MHz. I am sure you can run 2GB of PC2700 333MHz, 1GB of memory per slot in you're board for a total of 2GB.

If I can help you further, feel free to post.
Suggestions & comments welcomed.

Memory does not compatible with the board.


Hi, it is unadviseable to "Mix" R, or more,am's .. they MUST be exactly the same generally to work together. IE: generall ANY two PC2100 would be OK, ANY two, or more, PC3200 would be OK. BUT NOT MIXED.. It really is as simple as that. Sometimes RAM's of differing types can Be OK... but most often it's causes problems. You need them ALL to be PC2700 333MHz.
