Hi Batzilla - First off your board has 2 DIMM slots. If you want to upgrade to 2GB ram you have to go 2 X 1GB DIMM. Your board will accept PC 3200/2700/2100 DDR SD RAM Non-ECC. So you can use PC 3200 or PC2700 or PC 2100. But you'll want to match them exactly. I would go with the fastest. So what I would get if price is no problem, (not too exoensive these days) is:

2 X 1GB PC3200 DDR SDRAM DIMM NON-ECC. You can easily check prices with this info. This is the exact info you'll need. If this answers your question, PLEASE rate this as fixed. Please don't rate as helpful. If I thoroughly helped you rate as fixed or please don't rate. Hope this helped. Thanks and have a good day.

    hi again,ok its about 2gb ram upgrade?well if its just for a normal usage i woudnt suggest u to go for 2gb coz thats too much.but if u are a vivid gamer or multimedia user yess..n again if u are going to over clock you may need a higher clock speed ram i.e pc 3200.if not lower clock speed would suffice.so i guess u got a complete solution to your question.have a nice time.

I am owning a AMD Sempron 2400+ desktop.which is having DD ram of 608mb.in 2 slots.( one 512mb and the other 128mb ).When I looked at the board, there are 2 slots only indicating DDR! &DDR2. Now I want...


DDR (or DDR1) and DDR2 modules look similar, but the keying notch is in a different place. This figure shows the two types so you can identify which you currently have:

moz-screenshot.pngmoz-screenshot-1.pngmoz-screenshot-2.pngpgh_pa_guy_22.jpg

The type of memory used is determined by the motherboard. The markings on your board are just labels for DDR module 1 and DDR module 2; you will need to check the picture to determine what type memory you need to purchase. I suspect you will need DDR1, since DDR2 is a more recent type. A Sempron system will probably be an older board.

You can find specifications for the type and amount of RAM the motherboard will support at the manufacturer's website. If the computer is a consumer brand such as HP or Dell, go to their website and follow the links to the support and downloads page. If this is a custom or home-built computer, you can get information from the motherboard maker's site.

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.

DDR or DDR2


DDR 266 is DDR, not DDR 2 . The 266 is the frequency value in Mhz.

Try having the memory refunded or resell it on Ebay, so that you do not lose your money.

Here is supported memory, many older motherboards do not accept modules of over 512Mb each, ask to the seller:

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.

Upgrading Ram


Hi,

Make sure you have the RAM seated in slot #1, and that you do not have DDR RAM installed as well, as DDR2 with DDR RAM will not work. Also, make sure the RAM you bought is on the QVL (Qualified Vendors List) for that motherboard. I know I have had problems with ASUS motherboards and OCZ ram before.

I want to upgrade Ram


Hello there.

Upgrading your computer can be a complicated task, as there are lots of different types of memory available. Luckily there are means to make it much easier.

What i would suggest is clicking here and running the memory scan, it will tell you what memory you have exactly already and let you know which new memory is compatible and best suited for this system.

I have purchased and used crucial memory for a lot time, it has free delivery and lifetime warranty. If you do not want to buy it online, print out the page it shows you and take that into your local store, they will be able to choose similar memory.

Hope this helps.
