Question about Kingston 1GB PC2700 DDR DIMM Memory

1 Answer

Warranty or exchange??

I recently bought a pair of Kingston memory modules for my Computer. I am running windows vista, and It would periodically and totally randomly freeze up on me. After Cursing windows vista for weeks, I finally ran a memory test, thinking maybe that was the cause, and sure enough, one of the modules came back with errors. What can I do? Can I get an exchange from bestbuy? Thanks for your help

Installed 2 - 1 gb ddr2 pc2-5300 667 mhz dual channel memory kit matched pair memory sticks in my imac model 7,1 20 inch computer and it will not boot - I tried using them one at a time and neither worked...

I'm afraid it has to do with Apple's firmware on iMacs. A compatible 3rd party memory dealer is RAMJET.
From their website, you can see:
Apple Computers have proven too demanding for generic PC memory modules. Apple users have been forced to either pay Apple's high prices for upgrades, or buy 3rd party modules and be subjected to system crashes, boot failures, and sub-par performance. Worse still, most 3rd party vendors had no idea that Apple machines demanded a higher standard.
At Ramjet, we start with modules built 100% to Apple's original specifications, but we don't stop there. In our compatibility center, we have a comprehensive array of Apples, every platform built since 1996. Other memory companies try to test for Apple compatibility using generic RAM module testers, whereas we test our RAM in the same Mac you're upgrading.

I have Compaque Laptop . It runs very slowly. Compaque has supplied me with Kingston 2gb usb but I dont know how to use it and whether by installing it will it improve the speed of my laptop,I do not know...

A computer can be slow by many reasons - viruses, bad sectors on the harddrive, lack of empty space on the harddrive and ofcource, small amounth of random access memory (RAM).
Only to mention, that the memory on the picture is not for laptops and you have written "usb", which is not memory for adding to the RAM space of the laptop.
I will assume they sent you the right kind of memory.
Installing it is easy. You will need a small x-screw driver to open a small cover on the bottom of the laptop. There re usualy 2 or 3 covers there. You may open all of them to see where is the memory connector. You may or may not already have memory there. Remove the old if there is no place for the new. To remove, pull two end latches to the side and the memory will tilt up. To insert the new, insert it the same way tilted and when the contacts are fully in the connector, press it down to lock the latches.

I have got a compaq presario 6000 series pentium 4 desktop. I bought a 1GB kingston PC2100 DDR ram, 266Mhz ram for upgrade from my earlier 256MB ram. Somehow my desktop doesn't detect the memory upgrade...

the bios might be seeing it but windows might not, the possibility exists that windows is not able to view the full amount of ram installed try this. go to the start menu > accessories > system tools option and look for the system information tool, this will tell you more about the ram installed, note: windows dose on occasion report the wrong amount of ram when their is a 64 bit os installed or their is a 64 bit system
