Nodri_donri, pull your current memory. The brand & type will be marked on the memory. You want to match that memory when you buy. If your memory is small in MB size & you have only two slots to fill suggest you check you’re manual. The recommended memory type & speed will be listed there.
I will need the model number of your PC & the manufacturers name to give you a suggestion for memory

Good Luck & Kind Regards.

Ram speed-what does it do


Your PC support up to 4 gig of memory in 4 slots.
DDR 333/400 ram memory of 1 gig each.
So you need to know how much memory your system had.
Probably 2 gig.So the more memory the better will be the speed for run apps in your system.

I increased memory from 512 to 768 on Dell desktop with 2.4 celeron but did'nt seem to increase speed.what is the problem? Ray.


That minimal amount of increase is not going to be a very noticeable increase also the processor or a faster RPM hard drive is more for the speed. you can go to the system properties in control panel and then the advanced tab and then the settings tab on performance then to the Advanced Tab then to change tab in virtual memory then to custom size make the initial setting 1.5 times the amount of memory installed in your case 768 x 1.5 = 1152
on the max 3 x the amount of memory again, in you case 768
768 x 3 = 2304

Memory in an hp513c


Hi,

You don't need to replace both chips by at the same time you can run it as 1.25GB and will see a fair increase in performance.

You might see a slight increase in efficiency with two of the same but for all the gain you will get doubling your ram I wouldn't be too concerned.

The only problem you will likely have is that sometimes the new RAM and old cannot syncronize their data transfer speeds(CAS latency) and the machine won't boot up with one of each. If that happens just take out the second 256MB as you will still be doubling your RAM even with just the 1GB chip..


Hope this helps FixYa,

Chris

One of the ram isnt recognised???


This is likely a memory timing incompatibility. You can go into the BIOS settings of many motherboards and set the timing specifically for each RAM slot, but without knowing exactly which piece of RAM you have I can't tell you what to set it at. You could use the utility CPU Z, install one stick, run the utility and write down all the memory information, then install the other stick and write it down too. Then go into your BIOS and see if you can set all of your specifications to match the memory.

Of course if you could find someone to swap sticks with that would be easier. Some motherboards are more picky than others about which sticks they work well with, name brand manufacturers are more picky than aftermarket in general.

Slow pc


Hello juliet_34x,

Whats also important to perform when you up your memory to 2 gig is to adjust your Paging File as well. At 2 gig of primary memory, you will need to adjust the Paging File to 3000 (2 GB X 1.5) and Maximum size to 4092. In addition, if your computer was performing slow before the memory upgrade, you should perform disk cleanup and defrag (this will help alot).

Hope this helps and good luck.

Ram problem


Kamel,
First of all you should know howmuch maxim RAM your board will support and which type of DIMM's it accepts. You can see on your motherboard manufacturer's site.

  1. Try each on in all slots one by one to verify all slots are well. if not try to clean and check again.
  2. If its ok then put both together and check out, if not then try to change the place and clean the contact point as well.

Thanks
