Not compatable at all.
DDR SDRAM memory uses 184 Pin Dimms
Double-Data-Rate Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory, better known as DDR SDRAM or DDR RAM for short, is a type of very fast computer memory. DDR RAM is based on the same architecture as SDRAM, but utilizes the clock signal differently to transfer twice the data in the same amount of time.

DDR2 SDRAM uses 240 Pin Dimms.
DDR2 SDRAM improves on DDR SDRAM by using differential signaling and lower voltages to support significant performance advantages over DDR SDRAM.

If your question has to do with buying a video card that is going to use DDR2 ram, that would be a faster graphics card. You can also get video cards with DDR3 ram which again is even faster.
Oddly enough in respect to system memory DDR2 is supposed to be faster than DDR yet the DDR memory cost more than the DDR2. Go figure.

Can i use DDR2 SODIMM 800MHz PC6400 in my laptop even though the one in it now is a DDR SODIMM PC3200 CL3?


pc3200 is original ddr- ram but pc6400 specifies to ddr2. The ram is not compatible. And the key slots on your mainboard will prevent installation.

Problem With ddr2 (Upgrade From ddr 512mb 400 to ddr2 1gb 800)


If it works fine with one stick of ram. Then it is the ram that is incompatible. You can try different settings but you may end up that the stick isn't compatible. Hope this helps let me know if you have any other questions.
Thank you,

Pc5300 on pc3200 slot to upgrade msi 845gvm-v


PC5300 or more correctly "PC2-5300" and can work in a system that has "PC2-3200" RAM, and if mixed, they will operate at the speed of the slowest module. "PC-3200" RAM, however, is not compatible. PC-3200 is DDR SDRAM, having 184 pins. PC2-3200, and PC2-5300 are DDR2 SDRAM, having 240 pins. DDR and DDR2 modules are the same length,
but the pins on DDR2 are smaller and the keying notch is in a slightly different position.

You need to get the replacement ram all the same type ie - DDR or DDR2

And yes your motherboard should accept 2GB max

Ddr 2 ram connecting to intel d101 motherboard


Well first of all, there is no "adapter".  You have to use the specified RAM that you motherboard supports.  Secondly, even if there was an adapter so to speak, it would not be beneficial.  The only difference performance wise between DDR and DDR2 is speed.  So if your motherboard supports DDR, and you had an "adapter", your motherboard would only read the DDR2 at DDR speed.  In my opinion, DDR2 is not really worth the upgrade to another motherboard just for DDR2.  If you want the biggest bang for your buck, upgrade the CPU, or put more memory in the motherboard you already have.  Hope this helps, and please don't forget to rate.  Thanks.

No you cannot use ddr2 with this motherboard, this motherboard only supports ddr. And also ddr2 is not backwards compatible with ddr dimms because the notch is in a different position and the pin density is slightly higher then ddr dimms. ddr2 is a 240 pin module, ddr is a 184-pin module.
