Download and run CPU Z, it will tell you which motherboard you have. If you have memory now, try it in there even if it is PC3200, it will probably work even if it runs at the slower speed. If the computer fails to boot after you put it in simply take it back out.

On the other hand, if you are buying memory make sure you can take it back because some boards are very picky about what they work with.

My Toshiba Satellite A15-S129 is very slow How can i make this first. Plz help me at suja.islam@yahoo.com


Saying a computer is slow really is not giving out enough info. The A15's came with 256MB of memory, and runs XP Home - which was barely adequate. So that'd be the first area I'd address: most computers run slow 'cause they ain't got enough memory, and memory is cheap, so it's a crime not to give it an upgrade. If you indeed have 256MB of installed memory, then you should add a 512MB module (it uses laptop DDR PC2100 or PC2700 memory) and that ought to do it.

I had just one memory module on this motherboard which was kingston ddr, 256mb, pc2100. Then i upgraded my mobo with one stick of pc3200 ddr ram, and it keeps restarting and sometimes it just turns off...


PC 3200 is not supported by this motherboard. It will cause problems. You need to use PC2100 RAM.

*Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory.
  • 184-pin DIMM Banking: 2 (2 banks of 1)
  • Chipset: Intel 845D
  • Error Detection Support: ECC and non-ECC

Q: What memory goes into my computer, and will a faster speed be backward-compatible?
A: DDR memory with support for DDR PC2700,DDR PC3200 speeds.
Because DDR memory is backward-compatible, you can safely upgrade your system with any of the guaranteed-compatible DDR speeds listed below, even if your manual calls for PC1600 or PC2100 speeds.
Q: How much memory can my computer handle?
A: 2048MB.
Adding the maximum amount of memory will improve performance and help extend the useful life of your system as you run increasingly demanding software applications in the future.
Q: Do I have to install matching pairs?
A: No.
No, you can install modules one at a time, and you can mix different densities of modules in your computer. But if your computer supports dual-channel memory configurations, you should install in identical pairs (preferably in kits) for optimal performance.
Q: Does my computer support dual-channel memory?
A: No.
Your system does not support dual channel.
Q: Does my computer support ECC memory?
A: Yes.
Your system supports ECC. You can put non-ECC modules into an ECC system, but be sure not to mix ECC and non-ECC modules within a system. Install the same type of modules that are already in your system.

Please help with memory upgrade problem


Roy,

This is a common problem with memory. Memory that matches what you have in your computer may not be compatible. The best way to find compatible memory for your computer is to visit websites of manufacturers who produce memory. Here are two sites where you can begin. You will need your computer brand and model in order to search for compatible memory.

www.kingston.com
or if not:

DDR & SDRAM supported?


I suggest you stay within your manual specs.
Your boards memory should not use voltage higher than CL2.5
Below is a link for 1Gb dimm DDR266 PC2100. CL2.5

You can also buy two which would take you to the motherboards MAX memory of 2Gb.
