Question about Intel Computer Processors

1 Answer

Can you add to much Ram for the processor to handle?

Motherboard is a Gateway D865GLC currently has 2-256MB DDR PC2700 and 2 open slots. Online diognostic Crucial memory stick thing says each slot can handle a max 1gb card. I am looking at put 2- 1GB DDR400 PC3200 or DDR333/PC2700 in the empties for a total of 2.5 GB. My Processor is a Pentium 4 2.60 GB 800 MHZ FSB w/ HT. Is quintupling the RAM like this outdoing what the processor is capable of, or should cause no problems? All of the RAM is Non-ECC and unbuffered. Intel 865G Chipset is on the motherboard. Thanks for the time and input.

I am owning a AMD Sempron 2400+ desktop.which is having DD ram of 608mb.in 2 slots.( one 512mb and the other 128mb ).When I looked at the board, there are 2 slots only indicating DDR! &DDR2. Now I want...


DDR (or DDR1) and DDR2 modules look similar, but the keying notch is in a different place. This figure shows the two types so you can identify which you currently have:

The type of memory used is determined by the motherboard. The markings on your board are just labels for DDR module 1 and DDR module 2; you will need to check the picture to determine what type memory you need to purchase. I suspect you will need DDR1, since DDR2 is a more recent type. A Sempron system will probably be an older board.

You can find specifications for the type and amount of RAM the motherboard will support at the manufacturer's website. If the computer is a consumer brand such as HP or Dell, go to their website and follow the links to the support and downloads page. If this is a custom or home-built computer, you can get information from the motherboard maker's site.

What is the latest ram can be install for socket a 462 motherboard


Because this is an old socket type, the best ram you could run would be 133MHZ DDR. This is dependent on your exact motherboard though, as it might not even support that speed. It is a pretty safe bet that it will though, and if not it will just run the ram slower to make it match. I'd recommend a new board and processor, though, and that one is VERY old now.

Hi. The amount of memory that can be installed is limited by the motherboard, not the CPU. That being said, the motherboard you have listed will take the following memory:

I just want to know if my current motherboard can


Even without any way to check the specs of your motherboard with the current information, the board will most likely have at least 2 slots available for additional memory (i am assuming by memory you mean RAM), and will support DDR, PC-3200. If you have two slots, then you're looking at a limit of 2Gb (2x1GB PC3200) because DDR modules don't get any bigger than 1Gb as far as i've seen. If you have 4 slots, then a total of 4Gb.

Just wondering what kind of ram i should have in my computer.


If you mean dose this ram work in the computer, I don't know. If it doesn't, it may need pc2700 If you are asking if this is enough ram, no. You can't do anything anymore hardly for that amount of ram. I wouldn't use less than one gig, and suggest 2 gigs if possible.

Pentium 4 comptability with SD Ram


If you know what mother board you have you could check what RAM it can use.

All RAM is installed in the same way, but different types of RAM are keyed differently. That basically means that one type of RAM (for example SD RAM) will simply not fit into another type of RAM slot (for example a DDR RAM slot).

To install ram on a PC
Please note - do NOT touch the connector side of the RAM, handle it only by holding the side or top edge
1. check that you have the right type of RAM. do this by lining up the RAM above the RAM slot and making sure that the RAM is the same length as the RAM slot AND ALSO that the RAM's key (the little hole or notch in the RAM) lines up with the key in the RAM slot. Note there might be more than one key
2. open both clips of the RAM slot by pushing them down and out from the center of the RAM slot
3. gently insert the RAM into the RAM slot
4. check again that the RAM and the RAM slot's key's line up, if they do, firmly press down on the RAM on both corners until both clips automatically click shut on the RAM

That's it! :-)

SAMSUNG 1GB RAM 400MHZ PC3200


RAM has to be

Four 184-pin DDR DIMM sockets

Supports PC3200 (400 MHz) /PC2700 (333 MHz) / PC2100 (266 MHz) DDR DIMM type

Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory module is 1 GB

Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory is 4 GB
It has to be the same.


• If you are replacing a memory module, put the
new memory module in the same memory slot
from which the old memory was removed.
Or
• If you are adding a memory module, install the
new module into the socket nearest the
preinstalled module, and install additional
modules in the next available sockets
