I WANT TO INCREASE RAM ON MY COMPUTER

I HAVE RECENTLY BOUGHT A TUIP VISION LINE CT COMPUTER WITH AN INTEL486 2394MHZ CHIP.NO MANUALS.I BELIEVE MEMORY IS DDR (256MB) BUT SYSTEM SEEMS SLOW SO I THOUGHT I WOULD INCREASE THIS BY AS MUCH AS POSSIBLE.I DO NOT KNOW WHAT MAKE THE MOTHERBOARD OR HOW MUCH MEMORY IT WILL TAKE OR WHAT SPEED NEW MEMORY SHOULD OPERATE AT AND WHAT I SHOULD BUY. I HAVE RUN SET-UP AND NOTICED A FIGURE OF 133/33 MHZ IN WHAT I BELIEVE WAS THE BIOS SET-UP. THE MOTHERBOARD HAS TWO SLOTS FOR DDR RAM AND WHAT APPEARS TO BE TWO MORE FOR SD-RAM?
ANY HELP WOULD BE APPRECIATED.
THANK YOU, JOHN.

    No web support found for Tulip Vision computer. 
      A 486 computer is really old and even if you do increase the ram it wil be 133mhz ram. A lot of Ram is now abouve 800mhz. Have you considered  dumping the mother board and use the case and maybe power supply on a more modern  system?

I can't close tower cover


When your computer appears to slow down, one way to help increase its speed is by adding memory. You can easily purchase memory chips from various online sources or if you have a Dell Dimension and want to stick with Dell products, you can purchase additional memory chips from Dell itself. It is not difficult for a non computer person to add memory to a Dell Dimension, although sometimes, it is cheaper to purchase a new computer and then install additional memory.

Shut down your computer, turn the computer off and unplug it. Open your computer case. There will be two thumbscrews on the back of the Dell Dimension computer case that will release the cover. The side of the computer case will then slide backward and lift away from the rest of the box. Locate the slots for RAM. These are short off-white slots that are near the power supply on the motherboard. They will be slightly longer than the RAM you are about to add. There will be at least one RAM chip already in place in one of the slots. Place your new RAM chip into a blank slot gently. It does not matter which slot you use; any will work. When you press the RAM into place, be sure the notch on the chip lines up with the slot. There will be a guide on the slot to ensure that you do not insert the chip backwards. Press down on the RAM chip until it locks into place. There are two guides on the side of the slot that will snap into place on the sides of the chip to ensure the chip does not fall out. It will take a bit of pressure to make the chip snap into place, so press straight down into the motherboard to get the chip in place. Close the computer case, put the thumbscrews back where they belong and start up the computer. Your Dell Dimension will sense the new RAM, which will be available to the operating system when the computer starts up. Hope this helps.

NO PROBLEM, IT RUNS GREAT. I HAVE A E2 MB MULTIMEDIA CHIP THAT I THOUGHT I COULD INSTALL TO INCREASE THE MEMEORY.?? DON'T KNOWMUCH ABOUT TECH BUT USE COMPUTER ALL THE TIME.


In order to increase the available RAM in your laptop you will need a chip called DDR2 SODIMM. These can be bought at NewEgg.com.

Can I put different types of RAM on a motherboard?


Not different types per se, but you may be able to put different speeds.

Type would be like DDR Sdram2_bing.gif, or DDR2 Sdram for example.

Speed is a slang term for Frequency Rate. What frequency rate does the ram memory2_bing.gif module (Stick) operate at.

Example: DDR2 Sdram that has a frequency rate of 667MHz. (PC2-5300) MHz stands for MegaHertz.

Mega = approximately 1 Million. Hertz stands for Cycles per Second.

The above ram memory module operates at 667 Million Cycles per Second.

If you install two ram modules that have a different frequency rate, all the ram memory installed will operate at the slower frequency rate.

(Provided the computer will support more than just one frequency rate)

Have a computer in mind, or is this just a generic question? A what if?


Reply to your recent comment:

If this is in relation to two different manufactures of your ram memory, it shouldn't be a problem.

Where you may get into trouble in this area, is if one ram memory module (Stick) is generic, or low budget, and one ram memory module is a high performance gamer ram memory.

Without knowing the exact manufacturer of your computer, plus the Model name of it, and also knowing the information you have about your ram memory 'sticks', the following information is just generic, or general information.

High performance ram memory may use a higher voltage. Not always, but a good portion of the time.

High performance ram may also use a faster set of ram timings.
It may also have high density DRAM chips, and the chip configuration may be setup differently.

(The black rectangular modules you see on the side of a ram memory 'stick', are DRAM chips)

To explain so far;

SDR Sdram was the typical ram memory for years after SIMM ram memory.
SDR stands for Single Data rate.
Commonly just referred to as Sdram, but in actuality that is erroneous.

(Sdram stands for Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory)

Then came DDR Sdram.
Double Data Rate Sdram.
Then DDR2 SDram.
Double Data Rate 2 Sdram.
Then DDR3 Sdram.
Double Data Rate 3 Sdram.

1) http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SDRAM

(Anything you see on a Wikipedia page that is in blue, is a link to more information.

To further illustrate this,

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

SDR Sdram specifications were all over the place. What was considered to be a standard for one manufacturer, differed for another manufacturer.

The JEDEC organization was formed.
JEDEC sets the standards for ram memory from DDR Sdram on up.

Voltage for DDR Sdram is 2.5 volts
DDR2 is 1.8 Volts
DDR3 is 1.5 Volts.

Ram manufacturers found that by upping the voltage requirement on high performance ram, the ram could perform, better.
Not true in all cases, as there is high performance ram that operates at the JEDEC standard.

Ram timings were also varied.
Also the chip configuration
Plus the density of the DRAM chip.

Unless it is a really cheap, generic ram module, (Stick), there will be a manufacturers code on the side.
With this code I can tell you the specifications of that ram module.
I can also explain

Hi I have a mother board EP-4T2A3 and it supports


Hi,

This EP-4T2A3 is unique, that the can only utilize the slightly more expensive RDRAM memory modules. Furthermore, because of the dual memory controllers in the i850 chip-set, all motherboards based off of this chip-set must also have its RDRAM installed in pairs. You can purchase RAMBUS chips of PC600 to PC800 memory modules. You have 4 RIMM slots, and they must be installed in pairs, or you will get speeds of only a single module. The unfortunate part is that the RDRAM modules are a little more pricey. You can find some samples of these HERE.

Good Luck

You have to increase the RAM in your computer and then also increase the virtual memory in your computer. This will solve your issue.

Recently i bought msi motherboard and um um havin aproblem that it is hanging if i use more software,or play games ....it just stucks stilled screen and um just restarting. um havin 2gb ddr2 ram...


Can you give me the specs for the previous unit that you had before the MSI MB? The reason seems that it is because you run out of RAM memory. Or you can check the instruction manual as to the maximum RAM memory and compare with what you have now. Another thing could be that since you increased the frequency you have to increase the frequency of the RAM memory. Again check the instruction manual for the MSI MB and see what is the frequency required by the RAM memory. Let me know, I am here to help you...
Thanking you very much for considering our service...

Frequent message - virtural memory is low, increasing memory


Many times upgrading the ram amount will correct this problem. You may also upgrade you Video card for one that has a lot more memory chips(Total Ram) on it, since you have a desk top type computer. I have included a link in case you have misplaced you manual to see the original specifications. Ram and Video cards are available on line for such places as : Newegg.com               or            Tiger.com              to name two.

Cant boot up Computer- Memory address line failure


From the failures its probably a RAM memory problem , which means that you should try a different ram module that is working , or if possible try the ram module of this pc in another one thats working.
