Re: mother Board and And Ram

Try to go to and downlad the belarc utility. IT would give you the type of ram you have. The main information that you have to be careful about is the type or ram ie. its ddr or ddr2 and the frequency like 200 mhz or 333 mhz. if you just get the other ram with the same type and the same frequency the quantity of the memory like 1 gig or 512 can be of any make. Just be sure about the Type and the frequency. Thanks Ashish

I need to buy memory for my computer its an emachines desktop model# T3410 512 MB DDR SDRAM and I dont know what to get

in DDR ram there is some models like ddr and ddr2 and another new model is DDR3. First you check what is your ram related to. for that in some pcs bios option system information the details are there. For that at the time of booting before windows logo press the button whatever is showing to enter setup. and check otherwise remove your ram and take that to a computer shop and take a new ram with same model.

And one more thing is you have to check your clock speed of your ram. Remove your ram from pc and check if any information is there on ram

If i change the ram stick will my pc reconise it


1) It is no more than the maximum amount, for that ram memory slot.

2) Adding it, will not go over the Maximum Total Amount for the motherboard.

If this pertains to an Acer Aspire T135 desktop computer,

A) The Maximum Total Amount is 2GB.

B) The Maximum Amount for Each ram memory slot is 1GB.

C) PC3200 is the best you can use.
DDR Sdram at 400MegaHertz. (400MHz)

[It can also use PC2100, and PC2700.

DDR Sdram at 266MHz, and DDR Sdram at 333MHz, respectively ]

Once you install the ram memory, BIOS should automatically find it.

If you are only going to use one ram memory module, be sure to put it in Slot 1.
The Processor reads ram memory in Slot 1 first.

[Slot 1 is closest to the Processor.
It may have DIMM 1 printed on the motherboard, next to Slot 1 ]

Dell Dimension 4600 desktop memory upgrade

well first the mother board needs to be capable of handleing that much memory you can check that by going to the dell website and checking the specs on that model pc or mother board if the bios isn't recognizing it the chances are it won't but take out the 512 stick and just try one of the 1Gig if it does recognize that then try the second stick if it doesn't recognize them both then chances are it can't handle that much memory.

Few questions about RAM memory?


i)  LOW DENSITY modules have 100% compatiility with ALL systems and ALL chipsets.
    HIGH DENSITY modules only have 10% compatibility

    here compatablity means LOW DENSITY RAM are accepted by all system(100%)  or any make           system.. HIGH DENSITY RAM are accepted by 10% by only some system or computers...

ii) in order to check system performance or amount of Computer RAM usage press the ctrl+alt+del
   simultaneously a new window(window task manager) will appear showing:

    CPU usage: showing the amount of CPU or processor utilized at that particular time.
    PF usage: showing the amount of RAM memory utilized at that particular time.
    Physical Memory: showing Total RAM Memory, Available Ram memory....

iii) baiscally they are two types of RAM they are:

    DDR1:which is older one supported by older system  or older mother boards which is costlier
    DDR2: which is latest one supported by all new system or new mother boards which is less                         costlier

    DDR: double data rated ram......which will send data at a double rate compared to SD RAM

iii) here color doesnt matter, these slots either support DDR1 or DDR2 but not both at a time
    DDR1 has 184 pins or gold plated pinssss... on the edge of the RAM
    DDR2 has 240 pins 

    so difference doesnot allow DDR2 to placed in DDR1 motherboards or vice versa...

iv) it does have anything to do with no of chips on the RAM but they only differ whether it is DDR1 OR DDR 2(DDR2 are much faster than DDR1)

NOTE: whatever may the the RAM, each RAM has FSB(called Frequency...) which determines the frequency of rate at which data is tranferred from RAM to processor(CPU)  usually in MHZ such as FSB 300, 400, 200 , 333...................

more the FSB the faster data is transferred to the processor(CPU)

dont worry even RAM with less FSB's work well with the processor....having 1 GB RAM or 2 GB RAM is engouh, it only matters with the speed of CPU ... but not RAM......
