All you need to know for the processors is the socket you use and wether its AMD/intel.
If you know that, you can buy any corresponding CPU, and it will work.

WHAT ARE THE SPECIFICATIONS


Each computer contains two important components---a Central Processing Unit (CPU) and memory chips. The CPU and memory chips work together to process computations within your computer. You can't have one without the other. Your computer has a base amount of memory installed, 512 Megabytes or higher, that can be expanded to beyond 1 Gigabyte, in most cases. Before you upgrade your computer's memory, you need to know what type of RAM your computer takes: SDRAM (Synchronous DRAM), Rambus DRAM (RDRAM), DDR (Double Data Rate SDRAM) or other type.

Open your computer's Internet browser by clicking on the program's icon on your computer's "Desktop," this applies to both Windows and Mac platforms. Enter www.crucial.com/systemscanner/index.aspx in the URL box at the top of your browser's screen. The "Crucial System Scanner" tool application website will open. Click on the check box next to the wording "By selecting this box and clicking the download the scanner button, I agree to the Terms and Conditions." Click on "Download the Scanner." The "Opening CrucialScan.exe" dialog box will open. Click "Open" or "Run" to download and set up the program directly. Click "Save" or "Save As" to save the program's setup file on your computer if you don't see the "Open" or "Run" option or you are using dial-up or a slow Internet connection. The program will download and setup on your computer if you selected the "Open" or "Run" option. Navigate to the directory where you want to save the file, if you selected the "Save" or "Save As" option. Select the "Desktop" if you have a hard time locating downloaded files on your system. Double click on the "CrucialScan.exe" icon to open the program, if you selected the "Save" or "Save As" option. Click "Run" when prompted with the "Open File -- Security Warning." The "CrucialScan.exe" program will run and appear in your computer's Internet browser. Scroll to the second section on the "Memory upgrades from Crucial.com -- Determine My Memory Needs" website. The section is labeled "Your XXXXX Specifications." The "XXXXX"s represent your computer's brand and model. Locate the wording "Each memory slot can hold..." Write down the this sentence on a piece of paper---this is the type of RAM your computer accepts. Click "File," "Print," "OK" to print this website, if you have a printer attached to your computer. If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules. first you will need to select the manufacturer from a drop down list then select your product line from a drop down list then select the model then click find it will take you directly to compatible ram also you will have an option to scan your system you should always ask for a guarantee on the compatibility before making any purchase and try to buy for working pairs if possible Hope this helps.

What Type and Make of RAM can system use? okca28@hotmail.com


Hi - It takes PC2-4200 240 pin ddr2 ram up to four gigabytes (it has two ram slots total - so it can use a 2 Gb stick per slot.)

Brand - I personally would buy any brand that was cheapest (make sure the seller has a return policy just in case).

Enjoy your upgrade!

What brand of memory ram can I use in a t 2240 ? :) , tnx


The brand doesnt matter, you do need to be concerned with the type you use.

I looked up your computer on emachine's website and determined that you can use 184-pin DDR 266 memory.

search results from newegg (a trusted online retailer in computer/networking hardware):

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=%2040000147&Description=pc2100&bop=And&ShowDeactivatedMark=False&Order=PRICE&PageSize=20

kingston and pqi are both respectable companies for memory


That being said, I would contact emachine to determine the maximum amount of ram supported by your motherboard:

the page specific to your computer (contact info at bottom):

http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T%20Series&model=T2240

if you have any questions please let me know.

Thanks,
Mike

No the only thing that you can do is take the computer in and have them look at it and they will tell you what processor will work with your CPU board.

Trying to price/find ram upgrade for compaq presario m2000


You can go to the manufacturer website and check on the product model specifications to show you the correct limits. For example, if you have a hp laptop, go to www.hp.com and enter your product model in the search. then look for product specification page and you should be able to verify the memory limits

Problem with P4ITA2 Motherboard recognizing RDRAM upgrade


Sometimes, if the memory is a newer type, even though it matches the specifications laid out by the motherboard, there may be other factors like timing and voltage which cause a motherboard to not function with that memory. A lot of the time a motherboard manufacturer will be made aware of this problem and release a BIOS update to resolve it. Have you checked the motherboard manufacturer's website, ESC, to see if your particular motherboard is up-to-date with the most currently released BIOS version?

You can figure out what version of BIOS you're running if you go to Start -> All Programs -> Accessories -> System Tools -> System Information. On that first page it will list the BIOS version information and the date of that BIOS. If ESC has a newer BIOS available, you might try updating the BIOS to see if that resolves the issue.

Would like to upgrade the memory. find out exactly what type of memory is in my computer. Model 5000 5400 US Serial No. 2H21KKLK21VG Purchased April 2002


Your computer model takes133MHz Synchronized DRAM. this is different from Asynchronized DRAM. Its very important to purchase the one versus the other.

I recommend Corsair.com for getting memory modules.They make the Micron Brand to meet MILSPEC for the US Govt and Military. Corsair memory comes with a lifetime warranty and I rarely have to have their memory replaced but when doing so, there is a no questions asked policy.

They also have a memory configurator, where you type in the make and mode of your computer and the program prompts you for the memory to purchase.

Please note: You can only increase your memory installed to 512MB, using two 256MB modules. 512MB is a minimum for Windows XP and probably won't run Vista should you want to go down that route. I'd suggest buying a used copy of Windows 2000 for an EBay Power Seller with a strong rating. Windows2000 is virtually WindowsXP but its needs for Memory are quite a bit smaller and you'll have a better experience.

Emachine w3118 memory


while the reason you want to know density might help to answer, if you are buying memory you only need to know it will work in your machine

when I bought memory for my computer I googled brand and model number with the word "memory" and found a seller that had a little tool I down loaded and ran to tell me what memory was needed

memory is very cheap now days so price compare before you buy
