This mother board will take either DDR or DDR2 but not both at the same time. It is stated clearly in the user manual. So if you already have 1 stick of DDR just get another stick DDR also and not DDR2.

Hi i want to know if my laptop is with ddr 2or ddr 3,it is 1gb presaroi cq 60


The details about your laptop's ram,
Maximum = 4Gb
Technology= DDR2 SDRAM
Form Factor =SO DIMM 200-Pin

So, ram installed on your laptop is DDR2. If you need/want to upgrade, you have to look for and buy DDR2 type ram.

Good luck.

Thanks for using FixYa.

Can i upgrade my ram to ddr3 if so what would you recomend .cheers


Thank you for the clarification sir.
NO, the Fujitsu Scalio 600 Media Center uses the Gigabyte GA-8ISXT-FS motherboard, and it only supports DDR Sdram.

This is a PDF Motherboard Manual for the GA-8ISXT-FS mobo, from Fujitsu Support,

http://uk.ts.fujitsu.com/rl/servicesupport/techsupport/Boards/Motherboards/GigaByte/ga-8isxt/Man_8isxt-fs_uk.pdf

This is the support page for the Fujitsu Scalio 600 Media Center,
from Fujitsu Support,

http://uk.ts.fujitsu.com/rl/servicesupport/techsupport/consumer/MediaCenter/Scaleo%20600/Scaleo%20600.htm

Uses either DDR Sdram at 333MegaHertz, or 400MHz.
(PC2700 and PC3200 respectively)

DDR Sdram has 184 gold plated contact pins on the bottom.
DDR2 Sdram has 240 gold plated contact pins on the bottom.
DDR3 Sdram has the same amount of contact pins as DDR2.

The voltage and signal contact pins are in a different place, from DDR2 to DDR3.
This is why the locating notch on the bottom of the ram stick, is in a different place, comparing DDR2 to DDR3.

So you can see, DDR3 not fit in a DDR2 slot, because the locating lug in the bottom of the ram slot, and the locating notch in the bottom of the ram stick. Keeps people from trying to put DDR3 in a DDR2 slot, and vice-versa.

You can also see why a 240 pin ram stick, will not fit in a 184 pin ram slot.

Bumping up from DDR to DDR2 does make a difference in my book. (Requires using a motherboard that supports DDR2 however, so you would need a different motherboard)

Going from DDR2 to DDR3? Not so much IMHO. The frequency rate is higher, but there is a trade off with slower ram timings.

Sorry if I have been too 'Windy', but I thought I would give you more information, than just,
'No, won't work', or No won't work because your motherboard uses DDR Sdram'.

DDR or DDR2


DDR 266 is DDR, not DDR 2 . The 266 is the frequency value in Mhz.

Try having the memory refunded or resell it on Ebay, so that you do not lose your money.

Here is supported memory, many older motherboards do not accept modules of over 512Mb each, ask to the seller:

I need help with what ram sticks i can use


You need to find the manual online for your board. It will contain the information you need about your memory. Usually you don't mix DDR and DDR2 sticks... and DDR2 is far more stable and better. So I would just stick with that.

Here's a manual for your board to download..

http://safemanuals.com/user-guide-instructions-owner-manual/BIOSTAR/M7VIG%20400-_S

AND... here as well.

I hope I have been of some assistance!

Good luck!

Asus p5 vdc-x motherboard not recognizing ddr2


Ok i am just guessing here

maybe your motherboard does not support

ddr2 rams and hence it wont boot up as it does not detect any ram in the slots......

try to boot with one old and one new ram (ddr and ddr2) and post the result

are you sure whether the ddr2 ram is supported?

I inserted a DDR2 ram and the board stopped working thereafter


According to the manual for this motherboard it supports only DDR2 memory so you won't have done it any good installing DDR ram. Check with the manual that you have the correct DDR2 ram for the board and that you are installing the sticks in the correct slots.

Graphics card upgrade


Not compatable at all.
DDR SDRAM memory uses 184 Pin Dimms
Double-Data-Rate Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory, better known as DDR SDRAM or DDR RAM for short, is a type of very fast computer memory. DDR RAM is based on the same architecture as SDRAM, but utilizes the clock signal differently to transfer twice the data in the same amount of time.

DDR2 SDRAM uses 240 Pin Dimms.
DDR2 SDRAM improves on DDR SDRAM by using differential signaling and lower voltages to support significant performance advantages over DDR SDRAM.

If your question has to do with buying a video card that is going to use DDR2 ram, that would be a faster graphics card. You can also get video cards with DDR3 ram which again is even faster.
Oddly enough in respect to system memory DDR2 is supposed to be faster than DDR yet the DDR memory cost more than the DDR2. Go figure.
