    Checking my crystal ball. Nope, bad reception today! You're going to have to tell me WHAT motherboard, or at least the computer manufacturer name, Model Name, and Model Number. Some mobo's have the option of using DDR2 -OR- DDR3.

Thank you for the clarification sir.
NO, the Fujitsu Scalio 600 Media Center uses the Gigabyte GA-8ISXT-FS motherboard, and it only supports DDR Sdram.

This is a PDF Motherboard Manual for the GA-8ISXT-FS mobo, from Fujitsu Support,

http://uk.ts.fujitsu.com/rl/servicesupport/techsupport/Boards/Motherboards/GigaByte/ga-8isxt/Man_8isxt-fs_uk.pdf

This is the support page for the Fujitsu Scalio 600 Media Center,
from Fujitsu Support,

http://uk.ts.fujitsu.com/rl/servicesupport/techsupport/consumer/MediaCenter/Scaleo%20600/Scaleo%20600.htm

Uses either DDR Sdram at 333MegaHertz, or 400MHz.
(PC2700 and PC3200 respectively)

DDR Sdram has 184 gold plated contact pins on the bottom.
DDR2 Sdram has 240 gold plated contact pins on the bottom.
DDR3 Sdram has the same amount of contact pins as DDR2.

The voltage and signal contact pins are in a different place, from DDR2 to DDR3.
This is why the locating notch on the bottom of the ram stick, is in a different place, comparing DDR2 to DDR3.

So you can see, DDR3 not fit in a DDR2 slot, because the locating lug in the bottom of the ram slot, and the locating notch in the bottom of the ram stick. Keeps people from trying to put DDR3 in a DDR2 slot, and vice-versa.

You can also see why a 240 pin ram stick, will not fit in a 184 pin ram slot.

Bumping up from DDR to DDR2 does make a difference in my book. (Requires using a motherboard that supports DDR2 however, so you would need a different motherboard)

Going from DDR2 to DDR3? Not so much IMHO. The frequency rate is higher, but there is a trade off with slower ram timings.

Sorry if I have been too 'Windy', but I thought I would give you more information, than just,
'No, won't work', or No won't work because your motherboard uses DDR Sdram'.

My rig i7-980x Extreme, EVGA X58 FTW3, currently 24GB ram ddr3 pc3-10700h 4gbX6, Win7 Ult 64b. only 16gb usable. 980x says ddr3 1066mhz ram MOBO triple chan ddr3-1600+, supports up to 24GB of DDR3


try swapping the chips around. may not be seated correctly or maybe dud chips. Try putting in 2, do they register 8GB. try the next 2, then the next 2. maybe you find 2 not working.

Is it possible to increase the SDRAM memory from 4 to 8 GB ?


it is if your motherboard can handle it. run the system scanner and it will tell you how many slots you have and if they can be upgraded or if you are maxed out. by no means do you have to buy their recomended memory, but it is a useful guide.

Hard drive beeps


was your vostro 230 third generation? meaning, did it use DDR2 memory before or always had DDR3? They are not compatible. 2nd generation computers cannot use third gen parts. cpu, ram, most none of that type stuff. the motherboards are different and cannot change. if it was ddr2 memory you have to use ddr2, not ddr3, hope that helps.
