Ram upgrade problem

My computer was installed with 256m at 333. I have two new ones, 512 at 400. They are the correct pin#. When installed my computer woudn't even come on. Is there a way to make these cards work? My father purchased these for me and he was told that these would work with my system. I have my doubts. The card is Samsung 3200-512m S111
pc3200 512mb
DDR400 184 pin
Dimm OEM

    No I removed the 256 all together. I thought there was a problem with the slot so I tried every combination possible with the same results. The computer was on but the monitor was blank. I reinstalled the original card and everything is back to normal. Is there a way to have the cards operate at 333 even though it's designed for 400?

  • jeremy_stubb Mar 09, 2009

    I tried using just one stick and this wouldn't work. I tried both slots and nothing. I guess I will just have to get the right ones.

    No, unfortunately it is not possible to force it to 333. How about if you jjust add one RAM instead of two?

The specs for the RAM on this motherboard are:
DDR400/333/266 SD RAM with ECC. Maximum you can use is 4Gb in total (so 1Gb stick in each slot would be fine - just make sure you match them in pairs).
Maximum of 4GMaximum of 4GB of DDR400/333/266 SDRAM with ECCB of DDR400/333/266 SDRAM with ECC

I can not upgrade the memory of my laptop, i have buy a new 256M SDR ram and put in the opposite socket and restart, but its BIOS still 256M at the same(it should be 512M). I try more than ten times but...


try to remove all memory and place only the new memory, if things goes right, there is a problem on the compatibility on your new memory, it should have the same speed as your old memory

Can i upgrade my intel D845pesv mother board with 1GBDDR3 RAM ?


No, that motherboard only has two DIMM sockets that support 184-pin connections, DDR3 RAM only comes in 240-pincount. Your motherboard does support up to two gigabytes of RAM, so you could buy two 1GB sticks of DDR 184(pin) SDRAM DIMMs at 333/266Mhz (the speed of the ram)and install that.

I have a dell dimension 4600. It has original memory cards installed. 2 256 MB for a total of 512 ram. I recently tried to install 1 GB memory card. When I start up computer it beeps several times,...


hello

several beeps in a system is caused by a memory issue -- If you've recently added or tried to add additional memory to the computer and have started getting these beeps. Remove all new memory you've added to the computer. If the computer works fine after removing the new memory you're encountering either an incompatibility or defective new memory.

Sometimes when the computer is moved and/or over time a memory stick can become loose causing the computer to be unable to read the memory or get errors as it's reading it. Try fixing this issue by opening the computer removing each of the memory sticks you have in the computer and then placing them back into the computer.

If reseating the memory did not resolve the issue try swapping the location of the memory. If you have only one stick of memory in the computer try moving it to another slot and then boot the computer.

If you have more than one stick of memory try removing all but one stick of memory and boot the computer. If this does not resolve the issue try removing that stick of memory and try one of the other sticks of memory.

the specs can be found at this link
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim4600/en/4600i/sm/specs.htm

the system you have is upgradable to 4G of RAM, and this RAM must be installed in equal pairs
so if you have 4 slots to insert memory in (assuming you will retain the 2 256M) , you must install the other slots by 2 512M, 2 1G or 2 2G DIMMs -- make sure you isntall exact same DIMMs, dont mix memory makers or specs, other than what Dell specifies

memory type must be
PC2700 (333-MHz) or PC3200 (400-MHz) DDR SDRAM
(non-ECC)

i hope this helps --

Upgrading ram on laptop, new ram not recognized.


remove the bios battery for a few seconds...and place it back on ...this will make it see the new ram memory modules...if you are sure they are compatible ..they will work .....in fact ..the ddr1 333 512 M is more that compatible with your system and it will work after you remove the battery ...\ my recommendation is to reinstall a clean operation system after you boot up ...and format the C partition too...this have to be done after memory changes to get the max out of them ..
