Your computer will also use PC 4200, which is cheaper if you can find it. If not, try crucial.com, they have cheap prices on PC 5300. You can get 2GB for about $30.

Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.

So, to answer your question, your PC2700 memory will not work as that is DDR and you need DDR2.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate this solution as fixya. :c)

I'm looking to upgrade the RAM in my father-in-law's computer (Compaq Presario SR1500NX desktop). All the "see what ram you need" searches on various websites that sell memory indicate PC2700 is...


This is the memory specs for the SR1500.
Presario SR1500NX Memory Specifications Standard Memory 256 MB (removable) Maximum Memory 2 GB Memory Expansion 2 sockets Memory Comments PC2700 DDR SDRAM DIMMs. CPU Type 2.0GHz AMD Sempron 3000+ Model Comments 333MHz FSB, VIA KM400A Chipset.

The PC2700 refers to the RAM speed, so you can use PC3200 which is faster RAM than PC2700, the PC3200 RAM should be more expensive not cheaper unless this supplier has stock he needs to unload.
You will not get any speed performance with the PC3200 RAM because the motherboard cannot make use of this faster RAM.

I have an emachine T5026. Emachine tech swears this machine only supports pc2700 ram but the stickers on the factory installed ram says pc3200 256mb x 2 so i bought 2 memory masters pc3200 1gb x 2 sticks....


PC3200 is backwards compatible with PC2700. Meaning you can install PC3200 into your motherboard but it won't run any faster than would PC2700, however it will not cause any harm and should work fine.

Emachine's would say you need PC2700 most likely because they're trying to sell you some.

One of your new memory modules or the memory slots on your computer may be defective. I recommend installing a single stick of memory and booting your system. If it is successful then shut it down, disconnect the power and install another stick. Boot again and keep doing so and by process of elimination identify the bad memory stick or the bad memory slot.

This is the "likely" cause and isn't too uncommon.

Good luck.

I PLUG IN 2 NEW 512 MEM PCBS & WLL NOT BOOT. 1 BEEP FOLLOWED BY 3 BEEPS FOLLOWED BY 3 BEEPS FOLLOWED BY 1 BEEP. THEN NOTHING.


Remove the "new" RAM.
Look at the labels for PC2100 or PC2700 or PC3200,
or for DDR266 or DDR333 or DDR400.
Compare with the label on one of the "old" sticks of RAM.

Be sure that the labels on the "new" RAM are "equal" or "higher" than the labels on the "old" RAM.
For example, if the "old" RAM are DDR333, then you can use DDR400, but your computer will not accept DDR266.

Reinsert one of the sticks of the "old" RAM.
Does it still beep multiple times?
If not, then the new RAM is *NOT* compatible with your computer.

1gb pc2700 333mhz ddr wont work


You may have just bought a stick of gum! This ram could have been sold on e-bay for any number of reasons. It's not likely that you can get your money back. Sometimes even identical appearing ram won't function with original ram. Check with tigerdirect.com on the web for ram and other computer parts. Good luck!

RAM compatibilty


No, DDR 400 will not work. The best thing you can do is call Dell and give them your information. Model number and that kind of information and let them tell you what kind of ram you need. If you put the wrong type of ram in your machine it could cause major damage. There are so many different kinds of memory out there, not to mention high and low denisity. Your machine may use PC2700 high density and if you try to use PC2700 low density it will not work. One other thing that you can try is uninstall a stick of your ram and write down everything on the stickers and then go to some place like kingston memory and use their memory locator to find what you need.

Uses Pc2100 Memory 266 but want to upgrade to PC3200 Memory


The fastest speed that the motherboard you have takes is PC2700.  BUT... if you stick that ram in with the PC2100, the speed will automatically adjust which makes it backwars compatible, so if you put that in WITH another 2100 ram, it will downgrade itself to the matching speed of 2100.  But you have to have this other ram in for it to work... Be aware, you can still upgrade to PC2700 however...  Hope this helps!

Memory for the D4362


Your system may have 2 slots for SDRAM and 2 slots for DDR Ram, and must not be mixed, either use only DDR DDR2 or SDRAM. The mobo may only take 2 of the same size sticks e.g 2 x 1GB,or 2 x 256MB, so be carefull as you may waste money on a non recognised peice of ram. If you use a pc3200 and a pc2700 stick it will run at the slower speedof pc2700. Some boards will only allow a certain maximum of ram up to pc3200 speed and then adding any more you will have to run at pc2700 speed. The crucial memory site will be best for advice on memory type allowance and speed.
