RDRAMs have to be installed in pairs (at least in my case I think) but can the two pairs be of different capacity? as in:
64,64 - 256,256
(Upgrading 2 64mb RDRAM to 2 256mb RDRAM)

Scroll the page down to about 3/4th of the way, and to the bold black subheading - Legacy computer User Guides.

Click on the blue -
Using Your Gateway PC (For PCs shipped April 2002 - July 2002)

This is a PDF file. The computer you are using now has Adobe Reader on it, which uses PDF files.
After you click on the above file name, it may take up to 30 seconds, before the first page comes up.

You can copy this PDF file to a CD disk, or flash drive. (Me? CD disk) This way you can have the user guide at your fingertips, anytime you want it, and can store it safely.
You also will not have to download it again.

After checking that the copy is good, you can delete it from the computer you downloaded it to, and can save harddrive space.

May I ask what is it that you need John?

Supposed to come with;
1) Intel Pentium 4 processor that can operate up to a frequency rate ('Speed') of 1.8GigaHertz. (1.8GHz)
Fits in a Socket 423 processor socket,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Socket_423

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Intel_Pentium_4_microprocessors#Willamette_.28180.C2.A0nm.29

Scroll the page down until you come to Pentium 4 1.8 in blue, and Socket 423 on the right.

The conclusion, that it is an Intel Pentium 4 1.8GHz, and uses a Socket 423, and not a Socket 478 processor socket, is from the fact the computer uses Rambus ram memory.

RDRAM.

RDRAM -> PC800

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RDRAM

Scroll the page down also, and read under the bold black subheading - Marketing history

1) Intel used RDRAM for a VERY limited time.
Very FEW processors were made.

2) RDRAM costs 3 to 5 times what DDR Sdram costs.

3) Between the no upgrading of the Processor, and the high cost of the ram memory, I would set that baby on a shelf, and show future generations what a dinosaur looks like.

Not trying to knock the computer, or offend you.

Trying to update hardware components, or repairing the computer, IMHO is just like opening a window, and throwing money out.

You can remove the harddrive, and put it in an economical external enclosure. The external enclosure has a USB cable, that you just plug into any available USB port, on a working computer.

This way you can access the personal information off of that harddrive.

As for buying RDRAM ram memory? You could add a little coins, and buy an ENTIRE working good, used computer!

(Yes. I see the computer cost around $1353.00 when new.
The Processor cost FIVE HUNDRED, SIXTY TWO dollars, when new!
The Processor is about $20 bucks now)

Not advertising for seller, or website, but for $90 you could buy a good used computer, that will smoke the computer you have now,

I have picked up some curbside, that is better than what you have.
Jus sayin' in case you are thinking about upgrading that computer, or repairing it.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

(Most desktop computer failure can be attributed to it is dirty inside, {To include the Power Supply}, and/or the Power Supply is bad )

When i turn my ATXAEG on the green light comes on but will not do anything


Sub out your ram one at a time and test, if you find one bad stick it will in some cases shut the computer down, next unplug hard drive and test, if no change you may have a bad video graphics card, unplug if possible! if system come back you know the graphics card is the problem, if none of these help the motherboard is the likely issue.

Can I increase my Rimm memory sticks beyond 512mb and how high can I go this computer is nine years old. ATXAEG LX3 700X


You can use the Crucial Memory Scanner to determine your computer's RAM type and it will tell you the Maximum amount of RAM your computer will accept. The Crucial Memory Advisor Tool takes the guesswork out of upgrading.

Installed 1gig rdram computer wont turn on , only orange light... when i took out 512mb and put back the 256mb + 512mb(upgrade) it works.. but how do i install the other 512mb with out it not working......


Hi. It is recommended that you use a balanced memory total. Just like the wheels of the car. They all must be of the same capacity. But what you can try to swap the locations of where you put the cards in. If you still have problems then just use the 2 pieces of 512mb. Cheers!

Hi I have a mother board EP-4T2A3 and it supports


Hi,

This EP-4T2A3 is unique, that the can only utilize the slightly more expensive RDRAM memory modules. Furthermore, because of the dual memory controllers in the i850 chip-set, all motherboards based off of this chip-set must also have its RDRAM installed in pairs. You can purchase RAMBUS chips of PC600 to PC800 memory modules. You have 4 RIMM slots, and they must be installed in pairs, or you will get speeds of only a single module. The unfortunate part is that the RDRAM modules are a little more pricey. You can find some samples of these HERE.

Good Luck

I want to add more ram. Where do I get it? Dell


I hate to be the bearer of bad news, so don't 'Shoot the Messenger'!

The Dell Dimension 8200 Desktop PC uses RDRAM ram memory.
VERY expensive stuff!

Supporting Data:
This is Dell Support, Manuals, and the Dimension 8200 Service Manual,

http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim8200/

Scroll down the list to the heading - Specifications, and left-click on it.

Scroll the page down until you come to the heading - Memory
Now look at the first subheading - Architecture
RDRAM

You have 4 ram memory slots. (memory connectors)

EACH, ram memory slot can support up to a Maximum amount, of 512MB. (512 MegaBytes)

TOTAL Maximum Amount for your computer is 2GB. (Not shouting)

1024MB = 1GB. (1024 MegaBytes = 1 GigaByte)

The type of Rdram ram memory is PC800, and it is Non-ECC.

(Error Correcting Control, or also stated as Error Correcting Code.
Used mostly for Server computers. Your computer does not use ECC ram memory)

In My Humble Opinion, (And again, don't shoot the messenger), it would be better money spent to buy a decent affordable computer, than it would be to upgrade the ram memory in this computer.

This statement is based upon the fact that the Dell Dimension 8200 ships with 128MB's of ram memory.
(Makes it a pretty slow computer. Rdram or not)

The average cost to install, for example, 1GB of ram memory is OUTLANDISH! (Not shouting)

Example 1:

http://www.4allmemory.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=search.memorySearch&model_id=24927

Example 2:

http://www.pcmemorystore.com/Dell-Dimension-8200-ram.htm

For about another $100 you can buy a pretty decent new desktop computer, that will run the one you have in circles.

Just my thoughts.

Looking for the manual for a Gateway 700S PC. Specifically 2 questions ... 1) how do I open the ATX tower case? and 2) what EXACT memory specs do i need to upgrade this unit from the 256MB that it came...


Hello,
for the memory upgrade, your system used RDRAM RIMMS.
it supports the following memory modules (which must be installed in pairs).

and as for opening the case, you there should just be ~2 screws on the side panel away from the motherboard ports that you can remove and it will slide off, or there might be 1 or 2 thumb screws.

64MB Module 64MBx16, 800MHz PC800, 184p RIMM, RDRAM, 45ns, 2.5v PC800-Kit-136 128MB Module 128MBx16, 800MHz PC800, 184p RIMM, RDRAM, 45ns, 2.5v PC800-Kit-079 512 MB Kit 256MBx16, 800MHz PC800, 184p RIMM, RDRAM, 45ns, 2.5v PC800-Kit-081 64MB ECC Module 64MBx18, 800MHz PC800, 184p RIMM, ECC, RDRAM, 45ns, 2.5v PC800-Kit-134 128MB ECC Module 128MBx18, 800MHz PC800, 184p RIMM, ECC, RDRAM, 45ns, 2.5v PC800-Kit-080 512 MB ECC Kit 256MBx18, 800MHz PC800, 184p RIMM, ECC, RDRAM, 45ns, 2.5v PC800-Kit-082

"my computer will only beep no screen,it beeps


Hi

You likely have a bad memory module. First, try removing all the memory and putting it back in again. This is called reseating. If you still get the errors, then try removing one stick at a time and testing it with each stick (provided, of course, you have more than one stick installed). If you only have one stick installed, remove it and turn on the computer and it should beep at you as well. That memory stick will need to be replaced.

Thanks and please take a moment to rate this solution as fixya. Thank you.
