How to know what RAM works for what MB?

Since not all RAM can be used on the MB! So how can a layperson know what RAM to use? It is going to waste lots of money trying right! If it is not enough just to follow the spec stated on the manual.

Re: How to know what RAM works for what MB?

You should go to a web site called crucial to scan your system to see which memory fits your motherboard, but be aware that not all makes of memory will work in your pc, it's best to try and get the same make or type as you already have fitted, click link below:

I have intel 101 Ggc Mother board and intel pentium D processor , i was using 756MB ram (512+ 256MB) RAM. But after i brought 1 GB ram and Used it instead of 256 MB Ram the system started restarting...

There is a chance that you have faulty RAM module. If computer is stable on POST (until Windows boot-up) I would suggest to use some testing tools to test that RAM with your motherboard. There is a good program called MemTest. You can find it online if you search Hirens Boot CD. Download it, burn image to disk, put 1GB RAM into motherboard, start-up PC and boot from CD. Then you'll search for Memtest program. I would suggest to leave PC for at least 6 hours for testing to find out if it's faulty or not (better to leave for 24 hours).

What is better? to put four different rams or one single ram of 4gb in p4p800 vm asus motherboard

I would suggest going with a single piece or 2 identical pieces of RAM for expandability purposes. If you want to upgrade later, you will have the option to add more RAM. From a cost standpoint, you might be better off buying 2x 2GB sticks as a single 4GB stick of RAM might well exceed the cost of 2x 2GB sticks.

My system has a ddr 256 MB but it shows 192 mb only. what is the reason and solution plz


Your graphics card is sharing your system memory.

This means that you physically have 256 MB of Ram in you laptop, but the operating system can only use 192 MB of Ram because 64MB of Ram is dedicated to your on-board graphics.

Hope this answers your question!
Please remember to let me know if this information was useful!

Kind Regards

Hello! i need you help respectly to Kingston Box Cl5 & Kingston ddr 2 800MHZ The best is? what difference do exist? thanks and sorry my bad english!

If you need RAM, and you do not intend to OVERCLOCK or use the PC with lots of programs running at the same time, cheap and cheerfull RAM will be ok, I would advise to buy from a Good manufacturer, but the budget or value Ram will be fine.
The more expensive RAM with tighter timings, and higher speed ratings will work faster in the right circumstances, but for most people, it will be a waste of money.
Buy the best you can afford

Se7520bd2 - I installed 4 GB of ram (2 sticks) I added later another two ram chips the same mobel. The M/B is not recognizing the 2nd set? My Emial is

1) unless your operating system is 64 bit, your computer can only use 3 GB RAM maximum, so 4GB is a waste of time.

If you already had two identical sticks of RAM, chances are your BIOS is setup to recognise twin channel RAM is it has larger bandwidth so it is quicker. To use two channels your RAM must be identical in both channels, clearly if 3GB is the maximum you have a lopsided config and you have to swap the BIOS to single channel RAM.

Of course if you have already checked the BIOS rather than windows, and it still only sees 2GB RAM, the problem is a different one.......

Hi All, I had intel d101 mother board, which ishaving ddr ram of 512 MB, now i want to upgrade it using ddr2. i know that is not the supported for my motherboard. i want to know is there any connector is...

It used to be a waste of time and the only solution was another MB. Now they have come up with higher value ddr's (I think they call them 2 in one). If these ddr's are available, then all you will need is to raise the CPU chip voltage. You have to give me the CPU speed in Mhz. I see it as a good possiblity to update the computer with more RAM and raise the frequency to make it faster. You can get some life out of the computer and then sell it and replace it with another new computer. I have worked with all kinds of mother borads. There are some very good and expensive ones (which are not any better than the others). There are also some expensive mother boards that are plain no good. In my years of experience, if I needed a new mother board, I would buy one of the various models that they curently have. The name of the company is PCCHIPS from Taiwan. I have three so far for my own personal use and I am happy. I started to ask you about the CPU speed and forgot to ask you to let me see it. This way we can make our decision, upgrade MB and speed up the CPU vs. Buy another MB vs. buy another computer. Remember that jut about all computers perform equally. Equally, it is the reliability. I have three laptops we use for travel: one Compaq, that after 8 months we had to replace the MB du to problems. New MB's are more reliable than OEM. My other computer is a 1600 series ACER. About a month after the buy, I lost the CD/DVD drive. Other than that, everything works.... The third one is a business computer by PH. It works and works and works... 3 years now. They have a good blower, unusual for the run of the mill, the computer is mostly cool, even when I have to leave on for overnight VOIP calls. My name is Constantin (arzconst is my nickname assigned by my employer
