Re: ddr ram for my motherboard

PC2100 is DDR266 memory. PC2700 is DDR333 memory. PC3200 is DDR400 memory All are backward-compatible with PC2100. Memory is designed to be backwards compatible, so generally you can safely add faster memory to a computer designed to run slower memory, but... your system will operate at the speed of the slowest memory module or system component. Keep in mind that the memory does need to be the same type, for example, SDRAM cannot be mixed with DDR, and DDR cannot be mixed with DDR2. ZT3000 "Beta tester of "0"s and "1's"

According to the manual, to max out the board's RAM you'd need to install 2 1GB sticks of DDR RAM. It can support DDR400/333/266. 2GB is it's maximum capacity.

I want to extend the RAM memory on my NEC computer. The motherboard is a GA-8SIMLNF Rev.1.1. It has two memory slots and presently one slot is occupied with a PC2100U-20330-A1 256 DDR 133 CL2 memory. I...

Check your manual (Gigabyte will have the manual on their website), to make sure your motherboard can handle 1Gb of Ram, or more. Generally in my experience, medium aged motherboards handle 1GB per slot, max (mine uses PC3200, not PC2100, and will take up to 4GB in its 4 slots).

You'll want PC2100 ram (easily searched for on, either in 2x512MB sticks, or a single 1GB stick for your open slots (bringing you up to 1.25GB).

Need to install PC2100 DDR 1GB ram upgrade


The PC2100 DDR should be fine on that board. Each slot (which there are 3) will hold 1 gb of ram each. So finding 1GB PC2100 isn't the easiest, you can find 512mb, and put 1 512 in slot 1 and 1 in slot 2, There you'll have your 1GB.

Good Luck,

I have a Gigabyte-GA-8SIMLNF motherboard and recently bought 2gb (2*1gb)of pc2100 DDR and am getting the no ram beep,it is labeled ecc ramwill this not work?

Your motherboard does not support ECC RAM. You'll have to buy a PC2100 nonECC DDR RAM. Also, it supports a maximum of 2 GB RAM, i.e; 2 RAMs each of 1GB in each slot.

Hope this answers your query. Thanks.

Is pc266 memory the same as pc2100

PC-2100 is the same as DDR 266MHz - you'll need to be sure it's the right number of pins/contacts on the DIMM though.

DDR & SDRAM supported?

I suggest you stay within your manual specs.
Your boards memory should not use voltage higher than CL2.5
Below is a link for 1Gb dimm DDR266 PC2100. CL2.5
You can also buy two which would take you to the motherboards MAX memory of 2Gb.

Compatible Memory

if your motherboard is a DDR Ram supported type memory it should be able to take DDR 2100 or higher as most DDR is backward speed compatable, but it may be incompatable with certain types of ram or may need two of the same speed in each slot. Pc 266 is the double data rate of pc133 which in DDR terms is pc 2100

P4VMM2 Motherboard problems with RAM Cards changing fron SDRAM to DDR

Depending on your version of motherboard, it may only take ddr when you change the motherboard jumpers, as i assume you have 2 SDRAM and 2 DDR slots, but you will need to refer to your manual
