Would this particular RAM work with my Dell Dimension 2400? http://cgi.ebay.com/KINGSTON-1GB-DDR-PC2700-ECC-REG-KVR333X72RC25-1G-RAM-/380226148054?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item58873e96d6


Hi,

According to the Dell specification found here:
http://support.euro.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim2400/en/sm_en/specs.htm#1105481

your PC does not support registered ECC RAM.

Most desktop PCs use unbuffered RAM. Registered ECC (Error Checking and Correcting) is a special type of RAM mostly used in servers.

Unbuffered RAM is faster than ECC RAM and is usually cheaper.

To find RAM that is compatible with your PC try the memory configuration tool at www.crucial.com

Please rate my answer is this was helpful.

Many thanks,

Chris

Can the bios support using ecc memory to run as non ecc?


hi simple answer no, this feature is designed for that specific reason, if you have ECC ram you have to enable the ECC support in the bios, ECC ram has a different timing and ways of using the data flow, it is much slower than non ECC ram and uses more voltage, that's why most people prefer normal SD ram or DDR ram, you can however use these in *********** board if you turn the ECC support off, so long as your board will take the specific ram....hope this helps

I am using this ASUS (asus M2N-MX nvidia mcp61p chipset


According to the manufacturer's web-site:

http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=0pKBwEIE8tqMT4j7


this motherboard has 4 x DIMM sockets,
supporting a maximum of 4 GB
of DDR2 800/667/533/ Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory

and supports Dual Channel memory architecture.

So, add one 512MB DDR2 533 Mhz RAM into one of the slots,
being sure to leave *ONE* *EMPTY* slot between the two sticks,
in order to enable the high-performance "dual-channel" option.

Try your computer -- it should feel faster.

If you still think that need more RAM, buy two 512MB (or two 1024MB) DDR2 533 Mhz RAM, putting the 2 sticks into the two empty slots.

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?


Hi,
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.

Not upgrading 1gb ram to asus p5vdc-mx


yeap its the wrong memory.
max mem is 2GB DDR2 533/400 non-ECC, 2 x 184-pin DIMM

or you can use. 2GB DDR 400/333/266 non-ECC,
Note, you cant use both DDR2 and DDR in the same time. so set both memory stick as same type.
so if you set 2x1GB DDR2 533 you get the optimized speed.
hope it helps.

Hello! can i use two 1GB DDR2-800 ram in my motherboard INTEL D102GGC2


Your motherboard takes 533 or 400 DDR2 SDRAM Non-ECC DIMMs.
If your memory is DDR2 Non-ECC it will fit but only work at 533.
