Dear NickB,

In my experience working with many servers, Non-ECC memory will not work on a machine that requires ECC memory. It is possible in some servers to disable the ECC mode in the system BIOS to allow non-ECC memory to work, but you will often end up with performence problems later on.
Hope this information helps, let me know if I can be of any further assistance.

CAN I REPLACE THE MEMORY WITH A 4 GIG STICK


this will depend on your motherboard
whether you can install a 4 gb module of ram

you will need to select your motherboard from a dropdown list

also on the left will be types of ram ddr2 ddr3...... you will need to select which type you have


If you're not sure if a module is right for your system, use the Crucial Memory Advisor tool for a list of guaranteed compatible modules.

NON-ECC/Non-parity - Most desktop and laptop computers take NON-ECC or Non-parity memory.

ECC/Parity - ECC or parity modules look for errors in data and are most often found in servers and other mission-critical applications used by large networks and businesses.

Unbuffered - Most PCs and workstations use unbuffered memory which is faster than registered memory.


hope this helps you

Got an AsRock P4i65G mobo and bought 2 gig RAM for it. However, I have bought ECC memory by mistake instead of Non-ECC. PC wont boot with the new RAM. Is there any way I can get this to work such as with...


Hi, you can download a manual here:

http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?model=p4i65g

Your mainboard DOES NOT SUPPORT ECC RAM.
This ram type is ONLY intended for servers
or mainboards that are compatible for that ram type.

This is what your mainboard supports:

Dual Channel DDR memory technology
- 2 x DDR DIMM slots
- Supports DDR400/333/266 non-ECC, un-buffered memory
- Max. capacity of system memory: 2GB

Use only the asrock site when upgrading the bios.
And a bios upgrade does not supports the ecc ram anyway.

Hope this will help you.

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
