About my ram of p4m800-m7 rev 3.1 i have a 512mb ram already installed and i buy a new ram with a 1gb size and i would like to install it but my question is is it okay to put them together? my 512mb ram is...
The black rectangular chips on the side, or sides, of the ram module are DRAM chips. Dynamic Random Access Memory.
('Chip' is slang term to denote IC, or Integrated Circuit)
Each Dram chip is of a specific size, (or can be said as Amount)
There are manufacturers who make the Dram chips, and then the chips are used by the ram memory manufacturer.
Doesn't matter how the Dram chips are arranged. The ram memory manufacturer could put them all of one side, if they designed it that way.
1.Your motherboard will support, (Use), DDR at 333Mhz, or DDR at 400MegaHertz.
(PC2700 and PC3200, respectively)
2.The ram memory module must use 2.5 Volts.
(JEDEC has set the voltage standard for DDR Sdram at 2.5 Volts, so no worries here. Only time to check this, is if you have some High performance ram, that may be set to use a higher voltage)
3.It must be Non-ECC ram, and Unbuffered.
4.Cas Latency should be 2.5 to 3.0 (Ram Timings)
Computer off, and unplugged from power. TOUCH the metal frame of the computer case to relieve your body of Static.
Handle the ram 'sticks' by the body of the stick, and refrain from touching the gold plated contact pins, on the bottom.
If the 512MB stick is in SLOT 1, remove it. Install the 1GB stick in Slot 1. Make SURE it is seated!
(Slot 1, is the ram memory slot that is closest to the Processor. It is the first ram memory slot that the Processor reads)
Leave the computer case open. (Refrain from putting your hands in while the computer is plugged into power)
Plug the computer into power. Wait 30 seconds. Turn the computer on.
Computer boots up? (Starts)
Unplug from power. Install the 512MB stick in Slot 2.
Plug into power, wait 30 seconds. Turn the computer on.
Computer boots up?
You're good to go.
1GB ram memory stick is in Slot 1, and the computer does not boot up?
Incompatible ram memory. Remove it. Reinstall the original 512MB stick in Slot 1.
