Re: GA-81915PM FS Ram upgrade query

DDR & DDR2 memory DIMMs are not interchangeable.

Check the specs on your motherboard; some motherboards require specific memory configurations, such as my mobo, which will only function with "x8" memory chips, such as 32Mx8, 64Mx8, or 128Mx8. A "x4" memory DIMM will not work -- this might be the problem you're having. (Unfortunately, this bit of data on memory is often not listed, so you may need to ask/search well...)

No, DDR400 is just DDR RAM. DDR2 is newer RAM and is not compatable with older systems that take DDR RAM. Sorry.

Does D915GLVG support DDR2 ram

Hello, I am the technician that will be assisting you today. My name is Norman-Wynne Damstra.

Welcome to Fixya, Anish Nitin.

Unfortunately your Intel D915GLVG only supports DDR memory up to a maximum frequency of 400MHz. It also supports 333MHz frequency as well.

Therefore the maximum/fastest is DDR400 also called PC3200. In those days when the memory was manufactured they made 1GB modules.
If you would like to upgrade this computer install 2X DDR400/PC3200 1GB memory modules.

Take care!

I have a Fujitsu Siemens Computer Bought from PC World. A couple of years old now. It has become very sluggish on start up and I suspect I need a memory upgrade. I don't know what memory type to buy. ...

-your computer piles up data overtime that would cause your computer to slow down.
-you install/uninstall programs once in a while and that adds to the problem.
-you can use any cleanup tool like CCLEANER. You can download it from this link,

I wish to upgarde to the fasted CPU possible for my motherboard

More importantly RAM will give you better performance, if your computer is low on ram it doesn't matter much what the cpu is.

you can put up to 4GB of ram into it
4 x 184-pin DDR SDRAM DIMM socket support up to 4 GB
Support DDR400/333/266 unbuffered DDR SDRAM

here is a list of supported CPU's

I think any of the dual cores on that page will be a OK upgrade.

So if you upgrade your ram to 2GB and a Dual core 4800+ that should be good. but in the long run it might be smarter to upgrade to a new motherboard and even faster cpu, with DDR 2 memory, the memory ddr2 is really cheap these days.

Can I install DDR3 RAM chips on my laptop?

Sorry to say but that is not possible upgrading the RAM using a different RAM chip will not work, since your MOBO only supports DDR2 of RAM but if you just want to make the computer work faster you go and upgrade the DDR2 RAM up to 4GIG....

Motherboard query

If this is your board, it only has DDR support upto DDR400 (pc3200) upto 2gig, not DDR2 support.

All the rest of the specs are on the page anyway, so pointless repeating them all.
