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.

What is the max size of ddr400 memory you can fit into ddr1 & ddr2 dimm slots on a p4vm8 mother board

1) Total maximum amount for motherboard is 2GB.

2) There are 2 Ram Memory slots.

3) Maximum amount for EACH ram memory slot is 1GB.

Either DDR Sdram at 266MegaHertz, or 333MHz, or 400MHz.
PC2100, PC2700, and PC3200, respectively.

There is no DDR1 and DDR2 slots, in a manner of speaking.

May be marked on your motherboard that way, but stating it that way on a computer product support website = No.

You're going to make someone think, you don't know what you are talking about.

They may think you are referring to DDR Sdram, and DDR2 Sdram, and they know the motherboard only uses DDR Sdram ram memory.

Suggest state Slot 1 and Slot 2; or DIMM 1 and DIMM 2.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

GA-7VX memory error

Kingston manufacturer code on side of Ram Memory module, please. Need to know if it's compatible. Post back in a Comment.

Should be;

SDR Sdram at 133MegaHertz. (PC133)
LOW-density, unbuffered, Non-ECC, 3.3 Volt, 64Meg X 64 chip configuration, Cas Latency of 3.

Suspect Ram Memory you bought as the problem; especially if it is ECC, high-density, SERVER computer ram memory, sold on Eb** all the time.

Getting rid of surplus inventory, that NOBODY really wants.

Awaiting reply;

To what extent can i expand ram?


Welcome to FixYa, the world's largest product support community.

The main differences between a 32-bit versions of Windows and a 64-bit versions of Windows relates to memory accessibility.

A 32-bit version of Windows can access up to 4 GB of RAM whereas a 64-bit version of Windows can access from 1 GB of RAM to more than 128 GB of RAM.

I hope this answers your question. If you have follow-up questions feel free to post a reply.

More detail in your question would be useful to get the answer you are looking for.
If you are asking if that is what you need then the answer is yes. Your motherboard has two DDR slots which can hold 1GB DDR memory each, with 2GB being the maximum capable.
If you are asking where to buy some new ram sticks. Most stores no longer carry, or have a limited supply of DDR memory. Easiest and cheapest place to buy memory would be online. e.g. Tigerdirect, Newegg, etc.
Hopes this helps a little. If not, please give a little more detail as to what you are asking.

Where is the ram?

Removing the keyboard exposes the two memory slots, which are covered by a plastic sheet.

You can download the owners manual here which gives directions to remove and replace your ram. (Starts at page 70) Click here:

What amount of memory can i add


Your question is a bit vague, but i will answer it to the best of my ability.

For certain operating systems there is limitations on the ram that you can use. So the best advice i can give you, is to go to your nearest computer hardware shop and ask one of the experts there, giving them all the information they need to help you. Take one of your ram chips with you so that they can see exactly what they need to give you if you upgrade.

Best Regards

Won t turn on- NOT the 4 AAA batteries. Could the backup battery affect the main power??

To answer the question you asked. No the backup battery does not affect the main batteries. It is there to keep the memory electrically refreshed when calculator is turned off. You will know that the backup is depleted or almost depleted if the screen displays RAM CLEARED, everytime you turn the calculator ON.

Now to the calculator not turning ON. IF THERE ARE NO HARWARE PROBLEMs with your calculator (of this I cannot judge for I am no prophet) , it may be that the screen is too light and you cannot see what it displays. If that is the case, you can darken it as follows.
1. Press [2nd] key and release it.
2. Press [ArrowUp] key and release it.
3. Repeat Steps 1 and 2 in sequence, until screen darkins enough. You may have to repeat the sequence several times.

Hope it helps.

Memory support confusion

Hello gu11ddu,
Here are the specifications concerning your question about your motherboard's RAM.

Memory Type grayquestion.gif DDR SDRAM Number of Memory Slots 4 x 184 Pin DIMMs Supported RAM speeds 400 MHz • 333 MHz Max Supported RAM grayquestion.gif 4 GB
The key factors that are the most important when you select your ram is the MEMORY TYPE DDR SDRAM, 184 PIN DIMMs, and the SUPPORTED RAM SPEEDS 400 MHz and 333MHz. Your motherboard will support memory no more than 4 GB of memory, so yes you could use the 128mb modules, but you must make certain that they are DDR SDRAM types and 184 Pin DIMMs as this is what the manufacturer suggests is compatiable with your specific motherboard. The supported speed is also a suggestion, because this is the max speed that will work at it's optimal level. You can buy some ram modules that are higher, but they will clock down to the max speed allowed by your system. In other words, say for example you went to your local best buy or circuit city and bought the suggested memory type with the proper pin count and DIMM modules but they only had 500 MHz bus speed, then your system would clock the speed down to 400 MHz. With 4 128mb modules you are only going to get 512 mb max memory, because 4 x 128 mb = 512 mb so you will not be using all the available memory capacity that your motherboard can handle. If you wanted to maximize your memory usage you could buy 4 of the 1 GB memory modules or buy 2 of the 2 GB modules to obtain your max capacity. In your case buying 4 128 mb memory modules would not be worth it because you could buy 1 of the 2 GB modules and get better memory usage.
Another important thing to remember is that you should always use the same type of memory modules and never mix and match them with different ones as this could cause system crashes and problems with lots of memory errors. When going to a local store and asking a sales rep for compatible ram they will ask you what is the make and model of your computer and what your processor speed is because your processor speed also determines your bus speed because your ram will not operate above that speed it will simply clock down (if it is rated higher than what your processor speed is), with this information they will look up any compatible ram they may have in stock. Hope this answers your question and if you need further assistance please let me know.

p.s. your motherboard can support up to a pentium 4 class processor, but this may be different than what you have in your system.

If you do not mind, please rate my help as I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks

It depends really. The techs that answer questions here are doing it on a volunteer basis when we answer non premium questions. Really there is no way to say how long a question may take to get answered. Theres no guarantee it will be at all. I've seen questions get posted and answered within 5 minutes, it ranges by the time of day, who is on answering questions, or even how tough of a question you asked. If you really have an important issue that you really need answered then premium questions would greatly increase the likelyhood of you getting a response in a timely fashion. In addition to that, you may get numerous responses if you got the premium question route. Otherwise, I'd say ask your question and give it a day or two and check back.
