Question about Kingston flash memory card - 256 MB - MMCplus Graphic Card

1 Answer

Memory Hello, everytime I ask a question someone gives me a great answer. I have 2 remaining questions regarding RAM. I would like to know what does ECC and Non ECC mean and does it matter when purchasing RAM. Also does it matter if I install a 512 with a 256, or do they have to match? This is what I currently have in my system: 256MB 333MHz DDR Non-ECC CL2.5 DIMM

I would recommend going to and run their scan. It will tell you what you have, what kind you need, and the max you can install.

And yes, it matters about ECC and Non-ECC. Your computer can not use both. Most are Non-ECC and the scan will tell you that too. It will also tell you if you need to install in matched pairs.

RAM failure. Could be on the Graphics card or the main computer RAM may be at fault. But, as you don't ask a question or give us a decent description of the symptoms, we can't help any further than that.

Palit hd3870 driver, can i use it with ddr2 memory?


A graphics card has it's own Processor and graphics memory.
The Processor is a GPU,

Slang? Graphics chipset.

This means it runs independent of the system resources;
the Processor and Ram Memory on the motherboard.

Means if they come out with a graphics card using GDDR1000, you can still use DDR2 Sdram ram memory.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.


Windows running, install ALL of the graphics card's software.
The drivers, and the user interface;
(ATI? Catalyst Control Center)

It's okay as Windows won't use the software yet.

If you are asked if you want to restart your computer -> NO
Close all windows, go back to the desktop screen.
Turn the computer OFF.

Open the computer case, FOLLOW Anti-Static Precautions.
Remove the monitor cable from the motherboard, or previous graphics card.

Remove the old graphics card IF you were using one.
Install the new graphics card. Plug the monitor cable into it.
Close the computer case. Plug the computer into power.
WAIT 1 minute, turn the computer on.


Because when a device is installed on a computer, (Device = Graphics card in this case), Windows will 'break it's neck' to find suitable matching drivers.

If THE drivers for the graphics card are not already installed, Windows will match up one of it's THOUSANDS of generic drivers.
This = No.

Will cause a driver conflict.
Windows: "Which drivers do I use? These or THESE?" ]

1. I need the drivers for the pny geforce 5200 256 ddr card 2. When I put the card in and boot the computer it doesn't send a signal to the monitor. I had them make sure the card was working in...

Hello, I am the technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.
Welcome to Fixya, David Murdock.

Click here for drivers for your Nvidia based graphics card. You will need to click the Agree and Download button. Once the file is downloaded, double click the downloaded file to install the driver.

Therefore we know that the graphics card is ok and the problem lies in the remaining components in the computer system. Here's what you need to do:

1.)Clean the graphics card slot on the mainboard carefully with a vaccum cleaner, plastic nozel only to prevent shorts.
2.)Remove all RAM memory modules and clean their slots with the vaccum as well.
3.)Now clean the gold fingered connectors of the RAM memory modules with tissue paper.
4.)Install the memory modules. One at a time, if more than one is present in your system. (Faulty RAM memory Detection Process: Install one memory module when all is ready for power on, then power on system. If it still does not boot then remove that module and install the second on it's own. If it works then one can say that the first module is faulty/unstable and the second module is operational.) If they both still don't work then one says the problem lies else where.

5.)If this computer system has an onboard VGA Graphics port, A blue vertical port near the rear USB ports, then connect your monitor to this port and turn on your computer. If it powers on and boots up then you need to install the drivers for you 5200 graphics card at this point. If not then the mainboard or processor could be toast or a simple BIOS/CMOS reset could set it all right again.

David I am going to let you read two guides that may help you in this regard, free of charge. They are entitled:
How do I reset my BIOS/CMOS to defaults?
My Computer is not turning on!!! Is it dead!!! No POST!!!

Please do send along any questions you may have.

Take care!

Intel MHD 4500 Dedicated memory

For your first question...dedicated memory is only the memory that is always going to be used as part of running your video card. Unless your computer is pushed to its limits RAM wise, you should be fine. So with your first chipset 64mb of ram will always be used to run your video card. the 797mb is shared meaning it will fluctuate depending on your video cards needs. For your seconds question, no your really cannot. Unless you want to risk completely screwing up for computer by modifying your bios. You really do not need more dedicated memory unless you are having preformance problems, then i would recommend a whole new laptop. The 64mb vs 128mb dedicated memory in bios could be an error or your video card might actually have 128mb dedicated memory. Anyway if you ahve anymore questions fel free to contact me. Best of luck

sounds like might be a bad card,

alternatively your system ram might be giving you grief, i had major BSOD issues with my computer and ram tested fine, upon switching sockets that the ram was in i found that it was actually good ram, bad ram socket.

Beaping Sounds When turning PC on

These beeps sound exactly like that of the RAM. If you are not too skeptical about going inside your PC, you can simply remove the RAM and reseat it back firmly. Sometimes this happens that the memory loses good connectivity and would just need a reseat.

Computer and video card memory/ram

Hello there.

Answers to questions are reported on the website.
Graphics card memory is independent of main system memory. Your graphics card has 256MB of memory dedicated to graphical tasks, such as playing videos, games and animations. Main system memory is seperate and is used for loading programs and applications.

New graphics cards will have even more memory, so to answer your question: no video memory on the graphics card does not have to match main system memory in the computer.

Possible times when main system ram is used by the graphics card is when the graphics hardware is integrated into the motherboard. Please click here to find out more about graphics video memory.

Hope this helps.

Unable to upgrade RAM......

Sounds like they are 2 significantly different speed memory sticks. Normally, the faster of the two sticks will "clock down" to match the slower stick.

Without knowing the motherboard and memory stick specifications, it's hard to tell, but it's most likely a speed issue.
