Question about Apple eMac G4 M9425LL/A Desktop

1 Answer

Still can't boot-up eMac

Thanks ipodslinger for your help,

I did purchase 168-pin cards, not a 184. All the other specs are in-line with what you mentioned. I don't have any info on the computer, but believe it to be a G4/800. I found specs on this site.

http://www.everymac.com/systems/apple/emac/stats/emac_800.html(I can't get into the computer to give more details.)

I checked connections, all is good there.

The white LED is still on. It was on prior to trying to upgrade the memory, come to think of it. A bit more background ..... It's a used computer and I was having trouble adding software(previous administrator settings were stopping me).

To that end, I read that if I was to change/increase the memory I could change/ disable the password/ admin. settings and be off to the races. Experimenting, I removed and restarted the computer once with and once without the original 256MB card installed. This is probably when the white LED came on first. In retrospect this info should have been mentioned first, Sorry about that.

Thanks again for your help.

How many pins in the hyundai ddr 512mb?


SO- DIMM 512 MB 333 Mhz / 200 PIN PC2700 64Mx8



DDR SDRAM memory has 184 pins, where as SDRAM has 168 pins. DDR SDRAM Memory is a new type of SDRAM that is able to double the read / write speed of the previous generation of SDRAM memory. There are currently, PC2100 (DDR266), PC2700 (DDR333), PC3200 (DDR400), PC4200 (DDR533) These DIMMs are 184 Pin in size and are not interchangeable with older SDRAM modules.

Ram cards ?


Yes, you will have to purchase the correct RAM modules.

Your 184 pin RAM is DDR. Here is a picture.

07eb2c5.jpg If you count the small copper contacts at the bottom on this side, there are 92. There are also 92 on the other side. (Total of 184) These are the "pins".

Go to www.crucial.com and run their scan program. It is safe. It will scan your system and then tell you how much RAM you have, how much your computer will hold, and what kind of RAM you need.

Jetway MoBo: 2 x 1GB Samsung PC2100 appearing as just 1GB (2 X512MB)


Hi,

Your post indicating that you are moving up from SDRAM to DDRAM shows that your motherboard is capable of either type (having both type of slots) and therefore would have been a few years old. Having said this, then your MB would have the very early version/compatibility of DDRAMs where/when 512 then was the highest readily available memory.

As most Taiwan manufacturers, Jetway would be publishing specs that are a bit just over rated in terms of their product performance unlike Asus, ABit, AOpen. Additionally, most have been known to be using the same manual for several versions of the motherboard. A similar looking motherboard can come in several versions such as those with internal video while another is an AGP slot; one versions may or may not have built-in Ethernet port. In the same token, a version may have 2 X SDRAM slots + 2 DDRAM slots or 4 X SDRAMs or 4 X DDRAMs. Again, we are talking of the same model number of the motherboard but different versions/revisions.

2 G would be right for the 4 X memory slots versions (at 4 X 512) but since you have the 2 + 2 (2 SDRAM + 2 DDRAM), maximum would only be 1 Gb (2 X 512).

Hope this be of additional help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

2 x 1GB Samsung PC2100 appearing as just 1GB (2 X 512MB)


Hi Patrick,
I see you're point. I know this, you can not run "more than" 512MB in any DIMM slot. That is shown at the bottom of page 10 & the top of page 11. You can not run both types of memory at the same time, even though the chart looks like you could. The description term on page 10, states; Users only can install either 168-pin SDRAM Module or 184-pin DDR DRAM Module at one time. (You can't run both). You can run 4x512MB in all banks using184-pin DDR SDRAM. Or you can run 4x512MB in all banks of 168-pin SDRAMs. Total of 2GB.
So you can not run 1GB of memory in any bank.

Click on the link click on USA

On page 6, I believe is the following specs.

• Two 168-pin DIMM slots for SDRAM memory modules
• Two 184-pin DIMM slots for DDR memory modules
• Support SDRAM up to 100 MHz / DDR up to 200 MHz memory bus
• Maximum installed memory is 1GB
Note: You cannot use SDRAM and DDR simultaneously.

Upgrade of ram


Your board Support 168-pin SDRAM DIMM and 184-pin DDR DIMM (Can't Use DIMM & DDR SDRAM memory Together).
I would run the 184-pin DDR. Supports PC1600/PC2100 DDR DRAM up to 2BG Max. Since you have four memory slots 2x512mb of DDR PC2100 = 1GB would be plenty. You will notice programs load faster & games run smoother. Personally, 2Gb. may help but you will not see the difference. To see a difference it is not all about memory. Mb bus speed, CPU, chipset & speed of video memory all play a part with regards to Pc overall speed.
