Low density works alot more often then high density, HD is just cheaper and thats mostly why it't not compatible with as many boards.
Good luck,
Lee

Hi, I don't know if I should get single or double sided ram for this mother board, and is low density ram ok? Thanks, Wayne


This mainboard uses DDR400 memory


A High Density module is by far much slower than Low Density module at the same speed rating say PC3200/DDR400. High density modules are FAR CHEAPER, less than half the price when compare with low density modules and hence high density modules will NOT work on 90% of today's PC chipsets. LOW DENSITY modules have 100% compatibility with ALL systems and ALL chipsets. HIGH DENSITY modules only have 10% compatibility and are VERY SLOW.


So AVOID those 'High-Density - 128Mx4 config 1GB modules which is usually UNBRANDED and is NO NAME!


With this in mind it is far better to use low density Ram. Most RAM cards today are double sided, it all depends on the capacity of the RAM card.


Please rate this solloution as it it much appreciated.

Thanks.

I need to know if my T5048 dsktop computer is a high density or low density for upgrading memory


Take a stick of the old memory with you to the store and they can identify and get you what you need.

What brand of memory ram can I use in a t 2240 ? :) , tnx


The brand doesnt matter, you do need to be concerned with the type you use.

I looked up your computer on emachine's website and determined that you can use 184-pin DDR 266 memory.

search results from newegg (a trusted online retailer in computer/networking hardware):

http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=%2040000147&Description=pc2100&bop=And&ShowDeactivatedMark=False&Order=PRICE&PageSize=20

kingston and pqi are both respectable companies for memory


That being said, I would contact emachine to determine the maximum amount of ram supported by your motherboard:

the page specific to your computer (contact info at bottom):

if you have any questions please let me know.

Thanks,
Mike

ECS 648FX-A1 can it use high density memory?


The Motherboard limitation are DDR400 = 2GB maximum size per slot
Allthough you can with slower memory DDR333 or DDR266 go to the 3GB memory limit.
Due to the age it will be trail and error on the memory types. You won't necessary get any problems with the high density memory as long as it is good quality memory and you don't exceed the slot memory limit as mentioned above.
I recommend that you download the motherboard manual and read it.

How do I determine what kind of memory that I need?


Go to Crucial.com and install their configuration utility through your browser. They will tell you what you have and all the combinations you can do to max out your system. Look at the specs of the RAM and you can get it from Crucial or some other vendor.

My laptop has 256K memory installed. I purchased 512 RAM (max I can add is 1024) and installed it in my hp Pavilion zt1230 laptop. Per Kahlon.com instructions, I cleaned gold leads with eraser and popped...


Is it a High Density memory? There are two different types of memory, High and Low. Low density is the universal but High density, may be cheaper but the motherboard needs to be compatible with High density memory. Although your memory fits in the slot, I think you have High density memory hence why it won't boot up and does when you remove the memory.

Memory Stick Installation


So it seems you got the DDR / DDR2 side of the equation correct, but unknown to most, there is 'low' and 'high' density memory.

The density of memory refers to the number of chips used to make the total amount of memory that your memory stick contains. e.g. High density memory has few, large capacity chips to make up the 1024MB of memory on the stick, whereas low density memory uses many, small capacity chips to make up the same 1024MB total on the stick.

Typically, if it is a low / high density conflict, it is the 'low density' sticks only that will boot.

Me, I purchase Kingston memory when I'm unsure what the motherboard will be, and it has never failed to work.

I fix computers.

Emachine w3118 memory


while the reason you want to know density might help to answer, if you are buying memory you only need to know it will work in your machine

when I bought memory for my computer I googled brand and model number with the word "memory" and found a seller that had a little tool I down loaded and ran to tell me what memory was needed

memory is very cheap now days so price compare before you buy
