Hello there.

Yes you can mix different speeds of DDR2 memory, please be aware that if you mix a higher speed with a lower speed, the higher speed memory will only run at the slower speed.

Hope this helps.

No. You will be able to use RAM hardware of the same brand and series, though. the Optima product you listed is hardware that increases your computer's Hard Drive memory.

I wanted to get my acer aspire T180-UA381B upgraded, and I know very little about computers, how much and what kind of ram should i put in to make it run fast


Based on your memory specs below the maximum RAM that you can install in your computer is 1GB
DDR2 SDRAM and you can get 1GB RAM for like $15 -$ 20. 1 GB DDR2 SDRAM is what you need to buy.

Your Memory Specs:
Installed Cache Memory: 256.0 KB
[close] Installed RAM: 512.0 MB RAM, or Random Access Memory, is the place in a computerwhere the operating system, application programs and data in current use arekept so that they can be quickly reached by the computer's processor. Theamount of RAM you have affects how quickly you will experience your computerworking.
[close] Installed Video Memory: 512.0 MB
[close] Max Supported RAM: 1.0 GB
[close] Number of Memory Slots: 4 x 240 Pin DIMMs
[close] RAM Technology: DDR2 SDRAM

Just bought 2 1GB PNY dual Chanel memory modules for my Computer Make: HP Pavilion 061 Computer Model: RJ181AA-ABA a1600n Currently has Memory: 4 slots: 512 MB, 512 MB, empty, empty QUESTION: which slots...


Hi,

Start off by putting the first memory module in DIMM slot 0 this is the slot nearest the processor. DIMM slot 1 is the slost after DIMM 0.

Seems to be a Memory or a Motherboard failure. Make sure the memory you upgraded are the ones which are compatible to the system.
The compatible memory modules for your system are:
DIMM, 128MB, DDR2, 400M, 16X64, 8, 240pins
DIMM, 256MB, DDR2, 400M, 32X64, 8, 240pins
DIMM, 512MB, DDR2, 400M, 64X64, 8, 240pins
DIMM, 1G, DDR2, 400M, 128X64, 8, 240pins

The power light not turning on can be the Front bezel issue and not a system/motherboard failure. Please revert for any more issues.

Can you mix 1gb and 2gb dimms in the same machine (for a total of 6gb)? I added two 2gb 1066 DDR2 dimms (''OCZ'') to a PC that already had two 1066 DDR2 1gb dimms (''Kingston''). I moved the 1gb dimms to...


Your MB is AM3 with 128MB DDR3-1333 built-in, four 1.8 Volt DDR2-1200+ depending on cpu. Have you enabled cpu 64 bit extensions? Tried slowing down your memory bus?
My ASUS use dual channel for dual core cpu. I have 2 yellow and 2 black dimm sockets. Both dimms in yellow is single channel, one in yellow and one in black is dual channel. Might try 2,1,2,1 rather than 2,2,1,1 order. If only your 2 1GB dimms are seen then why do you get 4 GB from 1GB+1GB? Sounds like sockets 1,2 are giving you 4GB and 3,4 don't work? Are the 1GB+1GB in 3,4 visible if the dimms in 1,2 are removed? Per Gigabyte page your AMD Phenom II 920 is AM2+ : "Note: Due to AMD AM2+ CPU limitation, memory module DDR2 1066 or above speed is only supported by 1 dimm per channel." Per AMD (which does not show your cpu, AM3 cpu fit AM3 or AM2+ socket and support ddr2 and ddr3, AM2+ cpu only work in AM2+ socket and support ddr2 only.

I have installed one 1gb chip into my emachines t5082 computer and it worked fine. So I got another and removed the original 512 MB chip from it and it won't recognize the second 1gb chip.


I'm assuming that your 2nd DIMM is the same type and speed as the 1st one you put in. If you are not sure, check and make sure that it is DDR2, 533MHz, PC4200.

If they are not the same, that is most likely the problem.

If both DIMM's are the same, remove them both and then put one of them back into DDR2 Slot 1. Start your computer and see if the computer recognizes the memory. Remove it and try the other DIMM in the same DDR2 Slot 1.

If both work OK, the problem is on your mainboard.

Ram issue with compaq presario 5000 G1 Series


as you can see from the information below there are different requirements for RAM to work stable in your system . Most importand are the RAM VOLTAGE , SPEED , and Configuration of chips. you will need to consult the manual for qualified RAM requirements. Some RAM will work but not very stable. make sure the voltage supplied by your system is enough for the RAM. If you are running DDR RAM in dual channel mode, the ram needs to be the same size also. DIMM modules for the HP computer must meet the following requirements
  • The number of pins on the DIMM must match the socket type.
  • DDR memory requires a 184-pin slot and 1.8 operating voltage.
  • DDR2 memory is not compatible with DDR1 memory and requires a 240-pin slot and 2.5 operating voltage.
  • Synchronous dynamic random access memory (SDRAM): Only use DDR type SDRAM memory if the computer came with DDR-SDRAM.
  • SO-DIMM modules for the HP computer must meet the following requirements
    • The number of pins on the DIMM must match the socket type.
    • SO-DIMM memory requires a 200-pin slot.
    • DDR2 SO-DIMMs are not compatible with DDR1 DIMM and DDR2 DIMM memory modules.
    • With a computer running at a system bus of 533 MHz or 667 MHz, use a PC2-4200 (DDR2 DIMM 533) type.
    • The following requirements must be met for the DDR memory to function in dual channel mode:
      • Same density (256MB, 512MB, etc.)
      • Same DRAM chip technology (x8 or x16)
      • All either single-sided or dual-sided
      • Matched in both Channel A and Channel B memory channels

PNY memory


Hi

Dell Dimension 5150 supports DDR2 400MHz (PC2-3200) and DDR2 533MHz (PC2-4300) unbuffered SDRAM Memory (DIMM). You may install a total of four DIMMs in capacities of 256MB, 512MB, or 1GB. The maximum memory supported is 4GB.

From your query, I think the obvious question is; What is specification of the PNY DIMM and/or does the PNY DIMM meet the requirements for Dimension 5150?

Check for memory configuration and installation procedures for Dimension 5150 - http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/dim5150/en/sm/parts1.htm#wp1364711

The Chipset used on Dimension 5150 is Intel 945G Express. I am not aware of specific compatibility issues regarding the Intel 945G and PNY Memory modules. However, there may really be known issues that I am not aware of.

To proceed, ensure that the PNY Memory is compatible with Dimension 5150. If not, install compatible (memory type, speed, capacity) DIMMs.

Let me know if further help is needed.
