    Can i use DDR2 RAM instead of DDR1

    YES, if your motherboard accepts DDR Sdram, and DDR2 Sdram ram memory. If your motherboard has both types of ram memory slots.

    BUT, you can ONLY use DDR Sdram, OR, DDR2 Sdram.

    You Cannot use both types of ram memory in the motherboard, at the same time.
    (BIOS will only recognize one type at a time)

    NO, if your motherboard does not have ram slots for both DDR Sdram, and DDR2 Sdram ram memory.

    Double Data Rate Sdram ram memory modules, have 184 gold plated contact pins on the bottom.
    92 on Each side,

    (You can click on the above photo to enlarge)

    DDR2 Sdram ram memory modules have 240 contact pins.
    120 on Each side.

    You can upgrade the memory to maximium of 2gb of ram 1gb stick of ram in each slot. The memory you will need DDR PC 3200 184 pin.

    You can also upgrade the hard drive for more space or buy an external drive to store files.

    Tried to upgrade ram with 2 new pc133 sticks of 256mb ea. Didn't work. What's wrong? Are there switches on the motherboard I need to change? Or something else?

    No there are no DIP switches to change, or jumpers to move on your motherboard, in regards to your BIOS recognizing ram memory installed.
    (BIOS. Basic Input/Output System. This tiny program, {64MB in size usually}, that is burned into your BIOS chipset, is what recognizes ram memory on your computer)

    Things to know about the older Sdram ram memory.
    1.It's really SDR Sdram. Single Data Rate Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory.
    DDR is Double Data Rate Sdram, DDR2 is Double Data Rate 2 Sdram, and so on.

    Point? All ram from SDR to DDR3, IS Sdram.

    2.Standards have been set by JEDEC for computer ram memory starting from DDR Sdram on up. This standards were not implemented back in the day of SDR Sdram.

    Point? Ram memory manufacturers didn't all follow the same standard, and ram memory made for one computer, would Not work in another computer.
    This means you need THE ram memory for YOUR eMachines computer.

    Main factors when buying SDR Sdram,
    A.Correct type. You know this. SDR Sdram.
    168 gold plated contact pins on the bottom of the ram 'stick'. (82 on each side)

    B.Correct 'Speed'. ('Speed' is slang for Frequency Rate) You know this. SDR Sdram that operates at a frequency rate of 133MHz. (Or also known as PC133)

    C.It must be low density Non-ECC ram memory. It cannot be high density ECC. (Error Control Correcting. Used for Server computers mostly)

    D.Correct CAS Latency. Also known as Ram Timings. 3-3-3-3-2 would be normal for SDR Sdram.

    E.Correct Chip Configuration. How the DRAM chips are accessed. DRAM chips are the black rectangular chips on each side of your ram memory 'stick'. Also what size the DRAM chips are in MegaBytes. (MB)

    F.What the Maximum TOTAL Amount is for the motherboard. Is it 256MB? 512MB? Or more?

    G.What the Maximum Amount is for EACH ram 'slot'. (Correct speak for 'Slot' is Bank)

    H.Do you have four ram 'slots'? You MUST have a ram stick in Slot 1. This is the slot closest to the processor. It is the first ram slot the processor 'reads'.

    New ram memory on dell dimension celeron trying to

    You should check with the folks at Dell since whoever wrote their technical manuals for this machine can't do basic math. There are 2 memory slots and each can handle a maximum capacity of 512MB, yet they claim the maximum capacity for the machine is 2GB instead of 1GB. Using 512MB modules would probably work.

    Upgrade of RAM

    184 pin DDR DIMM is the correct information :) The bus speed of the ram would range from PC 2100 - PC 3200. I assume the Max amount of ram will probably be 2gb though unless your motherboard specifies a higher amount.

    Want to buy more RAM..

    Your dell dimension takes DDR ram. These are the specs:

    Supported pin types: 184 pin DIMM (regular desktop DDR ram)
    Supported memory types: DDR PC2700 or DDR PC3200
    Supported speeds: 333mhz or 400mhz
    Supported stick sizes: 128mb, 256mb, 512mb or 1gb.
    MAXIMUM MEMORY ALLOWED: 2gb (2 x 1gb sticks)

    If you buy two of these you will max out for ram and give you the best performance::

    Kt600 with 2, 1GB 3200 ddr ram sticks won't let win xp install, but with 1gb 3200 ddr ram, win xp installs

    First put the stick you are having issues with in a different slot; If it still does not work download memtest86 and burn it to a cd and run it with only the RAM stick you are having issues with. Here is a link to the program

    I want to know if SDRAM and DDR@ are the same thing?

    No SDRAM is single data ram, with 2 slots in the bottom and DDR is double data ram, with one slot at the bottom.
