While you likely can use the RAM, be careful. Some printers use proprietary memory with designs which could mess up your notebook. Contact the printer manufacturer and ask if their memory is standard or proprietary.
The cost of RAM today doesn't merit you risking the entire notebook for memory that can mess the computer badly.

    Emachine is a manufacturer of PCs with which I personally have experience. I learned with my first Emachine that they have a tendency for proprietary hardware design. After my first purchase I refused to purchase others from Emachine for this reason.
    It is reasonable to conclude that the memory would match. To verify, as best as possible I will refer you to:

Can an old HP Workstation xw8000 Computer that is currently using 512 RAM (PC2100 registered 184 PIN ECC DDR SDRAM DIMMs) be upgrade using 4GB Kit (2 X 2GB) PC2100 Registered 266MHz 184 pin DDR SDRA


According to a couple of people I have conferred with, that RAM should work.
Take a stick of the old ram out and make sure the the cut out, in the new RAM, is in the exact place as the old sticks. It cannot be off by a micron, or it will not fit.

Can i use a ddr2 400mhz ram on a GA8ipe1000 motherboard?


According to the Gigabyte website

http://www.gigabyte.com/products/product-page.aspx?pid=1863#sp

that motherboard only has DDR slots (4 of them), so, no you cannot use DDR2 RAM modules.
If you do manage to make it fit, the pins won't line up because DDR can be 184pin or 200pin, and DDR2 can be 214-pin, 240-pin, 244-pin.
Since your memory slots or only DDR, there is no way that the DDR2 would make the connections that it would need to make in order for it to work.
I hope this helps! If not, please comment back and let us know!

Can i use DDR2 RAM instead of DDR1


YES, if your motherboard accepts DDR Sdram, and DDR2 Sdram ram memory. If your motherboard has both types of ram memory slots.

BUT, you can ONLY use DDR Sdram, OR, DDR2 Sdram.

You Cannot use both types of ram memory in the motherboard, at the same time.
(BIOS will only recognize one type at a time)


NO, if your motherboard does not have ram slots for both DDR Sdram, and DDR2 Sdram ram memory.

Double Data Rate Sdram ram memory modules, have 184 gold plated contact pins on the bottom.
92 on Each side,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Generic_DDR_Memory_%28Xytram%29.jpg

(You can click on the above photo to enlarge)

DDR2 Sdram ram memory modules have 240 contact pins.
120 on Each side.

Is their a special make of memory card, ie: ddr


According to: http://www.shopping.com/xPF-VIA-MB-FOXCONN-VIA-KM400A-400M01-G-6L-R

this motherboard has 2 slots for DDR (184pin) RAM,
and supports a maximum of 1GB of RAM per slot.

Note that DDR RAM comes in 3 speeds: DDR266 (slowest), DDR333, and DDR400 (fastest).

Buy the fastest RAM -- if the motherboard cannot run the RAM at "full" speed, the RAM will automatically slow itself down to a speed that the motherboard will support.

DDR or DDR2


DDR 266 is DDR, not DDR 2 . The 266 is the frequency value in Mhz.

Try having the memory refunded or resell it on Ebay, so that you do not lose your money.

Here is supported memory, many older motherboards do not accept modules of over 512Mb each, ask to the seller:

Want to buy more RAM..


Your dell dimension takes DDR ram. These are the specs:

Supported pin types: 184 pin DIMM (regular desktop DDR ram)
Supported memory types: DDR PC2700 or DDR PC3200
Supported speeds: 333mhz or 400mhz
Supported stick sizes: 128mb, 256mb, 512mb or 1gb.
MAXIMUM MEMORY ALLOWED: 2gb (2 x 1gb sticks)


If you buy two of these you will max out for ram and give you the best performance::

I want to up grade my RAM


I'm afraid the highest frequency ram for your laptop is DDR 333. The highest capacity is 1024MB DDR333, 333MHz, PC2700, 200 pin SODIMMs.

Pc will not boot


Make sure the ram is seated properly and in the slots correctly. If you are using more than one chip, use only one to start and then add any others yoiu may have. I think you will find a ram slot is craked or the chip is inserted backwards. You really cannot damage a M/B by adding DDR instead of DDR2. It really just about the bus path and bus speed. Double check our work.
