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

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

ram cards ? - 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 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.

Thanks for using Fixya.

It will if you run Linux on it. I suggest one of the Ubuntu flavors. Investigate the various pros/cons of Ubuntu/Kubuntu/Xubuntu, etc., then download for free and install.

No display or beeps, Tried everythin, and out of ideas

ok, you seem to have covered most of the normal trouble shooting procedures.. Now, you say it beeps when you take all the ram sticks out but does nothing when you fit ram. My first impression is that this is a ram issue. Maybe the ram is not compatible with the board or has been damaged. This can also be the case if the board itself is damaged. It could be that the i/o controller chip may have thrown in the towel and fitting ram causes the board to access this chip. No ram means control passes over to the BIOS error routines and the i/o chip is NOT accessed. Or, it could be both.. Try the ram sticks in another PC first. Static discharge damage is very common, even if you have the anti-static mats etc. I have mats, a wrist strap even my workbench is grounded along with my soldering station etc but I have still damaged boards through static discharge. I have also found that some brands of Ram simply do not work with certain boards so try the ram in another PC first !! Also, make sure that the ram you are using is correct and that you are NOT mixing different sizes or speeds. Next, make sure that non of the USB ports in the case are connected and that the boards own USB ports are not damaged as a bent pin in a port will always cause issues. Sorry that this may not be much help but as I said before, you are covering all the bases, the beeps without ram are making me lean towards a ram issue though..

I have a Nikon D70 and am unable to insert memory card all the way, i double checked that it is the correct card and inserted the right direction.

STOP! You have just bent a few pins. Your camera has a male connection. Meaning it has pins sticking out. If you are unable to insert a memory card, that means a pin is bent and is not going into the holes in your memory card. This is a common problem with cameras that accept a compact flash card. This can be an easy fix or it can be a very hard fix.

Ive fixed a couple of cameras like this with a pair of tweezers. flash light (or some big source of light) and a magnifying glass. You need to look into the slot on the camera under light and look at all the pins sticking out. Look for the bent pins and use the tweezers to bend them back. Be careful not to keep bending the pin back and forth, as this will break the pin off. Ive seen cameras work without certain pins, but this is not something you want to do.

To have an SLR fixed is a minimum $160 dollars depending on where you take it too. The D70 is a good camera.

Please do not stick the memory card back in. Check the memory card to make sure all the holes are clear and have nothing blocking the holes or make sure a hole has gotten bigger and merged into one. I would use a different card once the pins are are sticking straight.

Hope this helps you.

Would like to replace MthBrd (M.B.) in E510 (Dell)

I believe you would be better off if you buy a new case as well as motherboard Dell cases can be restrictive on amount of drives etc you can fit in them
If you do you will need to find a board that will suit your type of ram and video card
RAM is it 168 pin 186 pin 200 pin DDR DDR2 DDR3 etc
video card is it AGP or PCI-E 4X 8X 16X

My dell is pathetic and old

The 4400 can support a maximum of 1GB of RAM. It only has two memory slots so in order to achieve 1GB you would need two 512MB cards. This would mean you would have to discard whatever is in the machine now.

The manual on the Dell website says this motherboard has an AGP slot so you could buy a newer AGP video card if you wish.

Here are my looks like this computer came with 256MB of memory and a 1.7GHz Pentium 4 processor. If you're using it for email, office applications, and Internet then buying additional RAM will not be a bad investment. I'm skeptical that a new video card is worth the money unless you're into gaming or CAD in which case you would be better off buying a new system.

I would like you to know that I'm not paid to provide any of these suggestions. It's a strange hobby I know, but I like helping when I can. Many times this type of question will not get a response on this website because there is no "solution" and very often any attempt at helping get's a poor rating. I hope if you've found this information helpful you'll rate this positively. If you have any more questions don't hesitate to ask. Thanks and good luck.

P4vmm2 motherboard

you can add up to 2 gb RAM using either 2 x 184 Pin DIMMs or 2 x 168 Pin SDRAM DIMMs. However that MB does support pc400. The supported RAM speeds are 100, 133, 200, and 266 MHz

You can buy a pair of Kingston 256 MB DDR SDRAM PC2100 (266 MHz) from the kingston website for under $50
part no: KVR266X64C25/256

Kingston is a well known and respected manufacturer of memory.
