You have 4 slots and each slot can support 4 gigs so you can have 16 gigs of ram total. I like corsair or Kingston ram the best. And when you are buying ram you want to look at three things. First is the type of ram which your type of ram is ddr2, second is ram speed which is measure in mhz you want the highest mhz you can get and last is latency, which you want the lowest latency you can get :) hope this helps. Visit newegg.com they have great deals its where i buy all my computer parts from :)

My pc wont boot up, led's 3&4 flash, I have renewed the RAM and the fault is still there, does anyone have a clue what the problem is?


Allan Cairnduff,
Below is the information for the 3,4 diag error.
Memory modules are detected, but a memory failure has occurred.
  • If two or more memory modules are installed, remove the modules (see your service manual), then reinstall one module (see your service manual and restart the computer. If the computer starts normally, continue to install additional memory modules (one at a time) until you have identified a faulty module or reinstalled all modules without error.
  • If available, install working memory of the same type into your computer.
  • The memory specs for this computer are listed below.
  • Type DDR3 Synch DRAM Non-ECC Memory Memory Speed 1333MHz Memory Connectors Four (MT, DT, SFF), Two (USFF) Memory capacities Up to 4GB Minimum Memory 1GB Maximum Memory 16GB(with 1333MHz speed memory)/8GB for uSFF only Memory

    The OptiPlex 790 system supports up to 16 GB of memory in the mini-tower (MT), desktop (DT), and small form factor (SFF) chassis with 64-bit operating system. The maximum memory supported in the ultra-small form factor (USFF) is 8GB. The memory speed supported is 1333MHz DDR3 memory.
    However, 32-bit operating systems can only use maximum 4GB memory address space. Certain components within the computer require address space in the 4GB range, any address space reserved for these components cannot be used by computer memory the amount of memory available to the operating system is less than 4GB.
    NOTE:
    Memory modules should be installed in pairs of matched memory size, speed, and technology. If the memory modules are not installed in matched pairs, the computer will continue to operate, but with a slight reduction in performance.
    NOTE:
    The total amount of available memory will be less than 4GB. The amount less depends on the actual system configuration. To fully utilize 4GB or more of memory requires a 64-bit enabled processor and 64-bit operating system Thank You,

Will extra computer memory be used if the maximum is exceeded?


Windows XP can't use over 2.1 GB of RAM for applications though up to 4 GB can be allocated. The extra RAM is used for the system only. It shouldn't hurt to have extra there.

I want to run Win Server 2008 Enterprise edition on Dell Optiplex 360. I need the drivers for: NIC, Audio, Video. Thank you


Hello,

Verify that your hardware is compatiable to the Server NOC. (Most are 64-bit software which require 64-bit compatiable software. When you place the server dvd/cd in the 1st time, it will check your system to make sure it meets the minimum requirments for install. If you already have the server os installed, You have 2 chioces: 1. Microsoft Server drivers (Microsoft support) or 2: Download each vendor's drive to your system or portiable drive and install as the server os is installing. (it will ask for 3rd party drivers at the start of install.

Good Luck

If I remember correctly, that Dell has two memory module slots, so 2 512 mb modules of non-ecc pc133 memory is the max that the system board will allow.
This is controlled by the system board chipset, and not by the bios.

Can I use DDR400 (PC3200) RAm in my Dell OptiPlex GX260 PC Desktop? Thanks


Yes.

Maximum Total Amount is 2GB.
Maximum Amount for EACH Ram Memory slot is 1GB.

Use unbuffered, low density, Non-ECC.
2.5 volt to 2.6 volt
Chip configuration is 128Meg X 64 for a 1GB ram memory module.
(Ram memory 'stick')

Suggest you watch where you buy it.
Cheap costing ram memory = cheap quality ram memory
Doesn't have to 'break the bank' in cost, but if it's too cheap to be true, it usually is.
Buy from a reputable ram dealer.
