Re: RAM Support

If it works there is no problem, as the system would not boot up, but your memory will run at the slower of the two speeds, which will be PC266 and not PC333, as the faster speed ram is backward compatable because it always runs on the slowest speed.

Will a Samsung 256MB DDR PC2700 CL2.5 184 PIN work

No that memory is not compatible. The Precision 350 uses memory called RDRAM aka RAMBUS.

Here are the speeds and sizes that are supported.

Memory modules supported PC800-40: 64-, 128-, 256-, 512-MB, non-ECC or ECC

PC1066-32P: 128-, 256-, 512-MB, ECC and 64-, 128-
,256-,512-MB, non-ECC

Minimum memory PC800-40: 128 MB non-ECC and ECC
PC1066-32P: 128 MB non-ECC and 256 MB ECC

Maximum memory PC800-40: 2 GB non-ECC and ECC

I have heard that a PC333 DDR ram can also run in a PC266 DDR ram supported motherboard but in a "slower speed", what does this mean? Let's say that If I use a 512MB PC333 on a PC266 DDR Ram...

You will get 512 Mb of memory but it will run at the slower bus speed. Think of it like this. Your memory is your car. Your car has the ability to go faster, depending on how fast the motor allows it to go. Unfortunately, everywhere you drive has a speed limit. Regardless of how fast your car CAN go, you are only able to drive the speed limit. That's kind of what is going on with the bus speed situation.

Bus speed determines how fast the memory and cpu can transfer data between one another. The higher the bus speed, the more information it can transfer at a quicker rate. If your memory is capable of transferring at a rate of 333 MHz but your motherboard can only support 266 MHz you will surely have the 512 Mb of ram but it will only transfer at the motherboard supported speed of 266 MHz as opposed to the full speed that the memory is capable of.

Hope this helps. If it did help you, please give it a thumbs up.

I want to upgrade my PC's RAM from 128 to 512 MB Is is possible to add only single RAM or two 256 MB RAM?

Depending on your mobo, you can do either, add one stick of 512MB or two sticks of 256MB. If you're sure you get matching sticks if your mobo is DDR capable.

RAM cuantity

The motherboard you mentioned supports DDR1 RAM.

For windows xp and general application 512 MB is enough.
But if you use memory intensive applications like image/video editing then you can opt for 1-2 GB RAM.

P4vmm2 wont boot up

Disconnect power cord, remove the button cell battery, press the power button to dissipate any stray volts, replace button cell, plug in cord and re-boot, this will reset bios to default settings.

You will get a check sum error so enter bios to re-set date time and other settings.

You can use PC2100, see below for example

Ddr ram for my motherboard

PC2100 is DDR266 memory. PC2700 is DDR333 memory. PC3200 is DDR400 memory All are backward-compatible with PC2100. Memory is designed to be backwards compatible, so generally you can safely add faster memory to a computer designed to run slower memory, but... your system will operate at the speed of the slowest memory module or system component. Keep in mind that the memory does need to be the same type, for example, SDRAM cannot be mixed with DDR, and DDR cannot be mixed with DDR2. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"

Memory Issues

PC2700 (DDR333) memory and PC3200 (DDR400) are backward-compatible with PC2100. Memory is designed to be backward-compatible, so generally speaking, you can safely add faster memory to a computer that was designed to run slower memory. However, your system will operate at the speed of the slowest module or system component (the "lowest common denominator" effect). One thing to keep in mind is that the memory does need to be the same type-for example, SDRAM cannot be mixed with DDR, and DDR cannot be mixed with DDR2. Let me know if you have any questions. Good Luck, Tim
