PC3200 means it uses a front side bus of 400MHz.
not all ram at 3200 is compatible with all machines
some are single and some are dual channel.
crucial.com has a configuration utility that will show what the max ram the system will accept.

What memory do I need?


Your machine has 4 DIMM slots. They use PC3200 (DDR400) DIMMS (184-pin). The machine comes pre-installed with 2, 256MB DIMMS providing 512MB of RAM. The largest DIMMs available in the DDR PC3200 are 1GB. If you keep what you have, you can add an additional 2GB of RAM, for a total of 2.5GB. If you are running WINXP 32-bit, this should be more than acceptable. You can replace all four DIMMS and get 4GB of RAM, but a 32-bit OS can only access a little of 3GB of RAM. If you want to come close to maxing out under a 32-bit OS, remove one of the installed DIMMS and add 3 1GB DIMMS. These are old memory and may be hard to find and actually cost more than newer memory.

I'm looking to upgrade the RAM in my father-in-law's computer (Compaq Presario SR1500NX desktop). All the "see what ram you need" searches on various websites that sell memory indicate PC2700 is...


This is the memory specs for the SR1500.
Presario SR1500NX Memory Specifications Standard Memory 256 MB (removable) Maximum Memory 2 GB Memory Expansion 2 sockets Memory Comments PC2700 DDR SDRAM DIMMs. CPU Type 2.0GHz AMD Sempron 3000+ Model Comments 333MHz FSB, VIA KM400A Chipset.

The PC2700 refers to the RAM speed, so you can use PC3200 which is faster RAM than PC2700, the PC3200 RAM should be more expensive not cheaper unless this supplier has stock he needs to unload.
You will not get any speed performance with the PC3200 RAM because the motherboard cannot make use of this faster RAM.

Gateway motherboard E210882 I upgraded the memory from two 256MB to two 512MB. Used DDR PC3200 (400Mhz) Now I keep getting a memeory error


Recommend checking the motherboard specifications to see how much memory and what type it can handle. If you don't have this, you can easily locate it on the internet. The replacement memory sticks will need to be of the same type. That means your motherboard may not be able to handle the PC3200 type chips you have. It may require the PC2600 type instead.

Tried to add RAM but now computer won't turn on


Didn't we speak online about this a couple of days ago? You can't mix and match RAM. What you added is probably not the right config for that machine. You need to go to this link, plug in your machine information and then REPLACE, NOT ADD TO what you have.

Dimension 2400 is at 1.5MG - will not go to 2.0MG per manual!


yeah thats a normal issue with the dimension 2400 as the older bios only supports a max of 1gb of memory you will need to go to the dell website which ive linked below and get the bios update which will give you support up to 2gb-pc3200 ddr memory

1gb memory stick


the obvious are that it's bad or not seated right. The first thing I would try is moving the new stick to a different slot.
