Not required to put the same memory. Any card will do as long as it fits right :)

Better choose two memory modules of same make and value to avoid conflicts and problems later on with compatibilty.

In other words, use same brand and memory type (DDR,DDR2,SD, etc) and capacit.y

I am trying to expand memory by inserting 2 PC3200 (DDR400) but total amont of memory size does not changed (still 512 MB) First slot (DDR1) APACER-512 MB Second slot (DDR2) LG Electronics - 1GB


Hi,

Take the stick of 512 out of the motherboard and insert the 1GB stick in DIMM 1 slot and switch the machine on. If it comes on check whether it has registered it as 1GB. If it has turn the machine off and just put in the 512 stick.

If the machine won't boot up with the 1GB stick then it could be faulty or the motherboard doesn't support 400MHz (which it should).


Regards.

I have a 512 mb 667mhz sdram on D102Ggc2 board.now i decided to up grade memory. Can i upgrade system memory without lose this 512 mb.


Hi,
Yes you can. but make sure that you buy the exact same type of RAM stick that you have and put it in the other RAM slot so the Dual Channel feature will be active (dual channel makes data transmission/processing faster) and making your systems memory 1GB. However, your motherboard can utilize or handle up to 2GB or RAM so you can put also a 1GB RAM stick which will make your systems memory a total of 1.5GB (that will be the case if you really dont want to lose the 512MB that you currently have,
Hope this helps.

Hope this is what you are looking for,

Memory installation


Most likely, it is a limitation of your motherboard. Not all motherboards or computers can physically read all types of memory or they may have memory limitations. For instance, I was working on an older Gateway this week. It had 2 memory slots but the maximum amount of memory the computer would recognize is 512 MB. Therefore, if I had put to 1 GB sticks in, provided the computer could use it, the maximum the computer would be able to see or use is 512 MB. In this instance, that is most likely the scenario. The best thing to do is to go to www.crucial.com and run the system scanner. It will tell you how many slots you have, what the maximum per slot capacity and the total capacity of your computer is.

Must I use the 2 memory slots for this dual channel DDR motherboard?


Are you sure the stick of RAM you are using isnt made by Rambus? If it is it will have to be paired with another stick of the same type. Also try using the other slot.
