No. Your Dell Dimension uses PC-2100 type memory. Your Dell Dimension can support up to 1GB of memory. For optimal performance install the maximum amount of memory in each socket. Your Dell Dimension 4500 has 2 banks of 1 socket each for a total of 2 memory sockets.

My Gateway DX300X desktop is super slow and only has 0.99 GB of RAM. How do I install more?


According to specs, your computer can use up to 4Gb of memory. You will need to open the case and see what is currently installed. You should have 4 memory slots and probably it came configured with 2 512Mb memory sticks. You could add 2 more sticks of 1Gb each bringing your total up to 3Gb, but my suggestion would be to remove the existing memory modules and install 4 matching 1Gb modules. You must use DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 (non-ECC) type memory and the best results will be achieved by using all matching modules.

Will an Asus A8M2N-LA motherboard accept a DDR400-PC3200 in addition to what is already installed?


Yes, that Locating Notch is there for a reason. Keeps people from putting the wrong ram memory in.

http://h10025.www1.hp.com/ewfrf/wc/document?docname=c00757531&lc=en&cc=us&dlc=en&product=3253996&lang=en#N122

Uses DDR2 Sdram that is either 533MegaHertz, or 667MHz.
That is PC2-4200, and PC2-5300 respectively.

{PC2-4200 is sometimes known as PC2-4300 also.
It's up to the ram memory manufacturer }

DDR2 Sdram has 240 gold plated contact pins. 120 on each side.
DDR Sdram has 184 contact pins. (Gold plated also) 92 on each side.

Each contact pin has a purpose. It is either a pin for power, or ground, or signal.

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

The above is an example of DDR Sdram ram memory.
(This particular example is DDR Sdram that operates at a frequency rate of 266 Million Cycles per Second, or also can be said as 266Megahertz)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DDR_SDRAM

The Maximum Total Amount of ram memory for the motherboard, is 4GB.
The Maximum Total Amount for EACH ram memory slot is 1GB.
(1GigaByte)

IF, you have only ONE ram memory module, ('Stick'), it goes in Slot 1.
On the motherboard it may have DIMM 1 next to it.

It is the ram memory slot that is closest to the Processor.
A Processor ALWAYS reads ram memory Slot 1, First.

At the bottom of a ram memory module are contact pins.
Gold plated.
Everywhere else on the ram memory module is the BODY.

Handle a ram memory module by the Body, because the Body is coated with a see-through protective plastic.

Refrain from touching the gold plated contact pins.

On the sides of the ram memory module, are blackish rectangular objects.
These are DRAM chips.

http://computer.howstuffworks.com/ram.htm

With the recent disasters in countries that produce DRAM chips, the prices of ram memory have gone way up.

What Type and Make of RAM can system use? okca28@hotmail.com


Hi - It takes PC2-4200 240 pin ddr2 ram up to four gigabytes (it has two ram slots total - so it can use a 2 Gb stick per slot.)

Brand - I personally would buy any brand that was cheapest (make sure the seller has a return policy just in case).

Enjoy your upgrade!

From what I can tell the Dell Precision Workstation 670 does support over 4GB of RAM. However when you have over 4GB of RAM installed in the system you have to have the Memory Cooling Shroud connected to keep the memory cool. Also this is only shipped out when the system is ordered with over 4GB of RAM originally. If you do not have this part you can order it from Dell buy calling 877-671-3355.

Let me know if you have any more problems or questions

Following installation of my 'Crucial CT12864AA800' 1GB DDR2 240 PIN 128Mx64 PC2 RAM, my Intellistation Pro M Series [not sure what #] will not load the OS. Is it not compatible? I checked...


This is the download page for HMM, (Hardware Maintenance Manual), for the IBM IntelliStation M Pro 6219,

http://www-947.ibm.com/support/entry/portal/docdisplay?lndocid=MIGR-45692

Under the heading > File link, click on > 71p9918.pdf, in blue

[ After you click you won't see anything happening. The PDF file is downloading in the background.
I have Adobe Reader 9.3.4. version, and a medium speed DSL connection. Took 122 seconds before the first page popped up, and the file was fully downloaded also. Longest time it has taken for a PDF file download, in 5 years of downloading. Just wanted to give you a 'Heads Up' ]

In the Bookmarks menu to the left, click on the + sign next to > General Information
Now click on the sub-heading > Features and Specifications

MEMORY
Minimum: 256MB
Maximum: 4GB
Type: PC2100
Connectors: four dual inline memory module (DIMM) connectors

Plain English;

The Minimum Amount of ram memory that can be used is 256MB.
The Maximum Amount of ram memory that can be used is 4GB. (4096MB)

The TYPE is PC2100. That is DDR Sdram at 266MegaHertz. (266MHz)

Crucial CT12864AA800 is DDR2 Sdram at 800MHz!
PC2-6400

Now WHAT is going on here?

DDR Sdram has 184 gold plated contact pins on the bottom. 92 on EACH side. There is one Locating Notch on the bottom.

DDR2 Sdram has 240 gold plated contact pins on the bottom. 120 on EACH side. There is one Locating Notch on the bottom.

Supporting data is 1) the Hardware Maintenance Manual I just gave you a link to.

This is information about the Crucial CT12864AA800 ram memory module,

http://www.crucial.com/store/partspecs.aspx?IMODULE=CT12864AA800



The contact pins on the bottom of a ram memory module are for Voltage, Signal, Ground, and a host of other attributes.

The orientation of the contact pins in regard to the above mentioned attributes, are in a different place, when comparing DDR Sdram to DDR2 Sdram.
Hence the added number of contact pins in a DDR2 Sdram ram memory module.

More than likely the ram memory module is fried. Can't say about the motherboard, in regard to the ram memory slot, or the Northbridge chip.

[Northbridge and Southbridge chip are the motherboard chipset. The Northbridge chip for the IBM IntelliStation M Pro 6219 is an Intel E7205, the Southbridge chip is an Intel 82801DB,

http://www.intel.com/products/workstation/chipsets/e7205/e7205-overview.htm

Similar to the Intel 875P, (82875P),

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_intel_chipsets#Pentium_4_Chipsets ]


Who recommended this ram memory module? Crucial?
