Question about Gateway 504GR PC Desktop

1 Answer

Memory I would like to know if the 504GR computer supports DDR2 RAM? Right now I have 4 slots on the motherboard 2 are white and 2 are black. The RAM I upgraded to fit in both the slots but work in the white slots. Can I use the Black slota in addition the while slots as well or do I have to buy a different RAM and remove the current upgraded. The Goal is to have 4GB of RAM on that machine using all the slots. Please advice. Thanks, Ram.

What is the max size of ddr400 memory you can fit into ddr1 & ddr2 dimm slots on a p4vm8 mother board


1) Total maximum amount for motherboard is 2GB.

2) There are 2 Ram Memory slots.

3) Maximum amount for EACH ram memory slot is 1GB.

Either DDR Sdram at 266MegaHertz, or 333MHz, or 400MHz.
PC2100, PC2700, and PC3200, respectively.

http://www.asrock.com/mb/VIA/P4VM8/

There is no DDR1 and DDR2 slots, in a manner of speaking.

May be marked on your motherboard that way, but stating it that way on a computer product support website = No.

You're going to make someone think, you don't know what you are talking about.

They may think you are referring to DDR Sdram, and DDR2 Sdram, and they know the motherboard only uses DDR Sdram ram memory.

Suggest state Slot 1 and Slot 2; or DIMM 1 and DIMM 2.

For additional questions please post in a Comment.

Tip

How to Choose Memory (RAM) for Your Computer


You need memory for your computer. But how should you choose the right kind? Whether you're upgrading your computer or building a new one, learn now.

Step 1 If you bought your computer from a manufacturer, use a search engine or go to the manufacturer's site to find the specs on your model. The max RAM found in the specs is likely the max RAM the whole system supports. To find the largest size module the system supports, divide the max supported RAM by the number of slots. Also listed in the specs should be the max speed supported and DDR type (listed as DDR, DDR2, or DDR3). Alternatively, instead of max speed and DDR type, the specs may list something like PC# ####, where the "#" is some number. This is just a different way of representing speed and DDR type, and works equally well in finding the right RAM. If you know the largest supported module, max supported speed, and DDR type, skip to the Tips and Warnings section.

  • Step 2
    If you're building a new computer, follow the above step, except search for motherboard model specs rather than computer model specs. If you don't know the model, look for it printed on the board.

  • Step 3
    If you couldn't find your computer's specs, the info wasn't detailed enough, or you have a custom-built computer, go to http://www.gtopala.com/siw-download.html (also in the resources below) and download the freeware SIW. Install and run it. On the left side, under the "Hardware" section, select "Memory."

  • Step 4
    The "Memory Summary" section on the right side shows the maximum amount of memory that can be installed in the system (listed as "Maximum Capacity"), and below that is the number of memory slots (listed as "Memory Slots"). The "Device Locator" sections tell whether or not memory is installed in that slot. To get the largest size module the motherboard supports, divide the "Maximum Capacity" by "Memory Slots." To get the speed and type, look under the "Device Locator" section, for the listing "Memory Type." Write down the PC#-#### part, where "#" is some number. Also for the listing "Speed," write down the value in parenthesis. For example, in 333 MHz (DDR2 667), write down only the (DDR2 667). You now have the largest supported module, RAM speed, and DDR type. You can use either the PC#-#### or the speed and type when searching for RAM.

  • Step 5
  • In Step 4, you found a supported RAM speed, but it may not be the fastest supported. Just to make sure, look to the left side in SIW. Under the "Hardware" section, select "Motherboard." Using this info, go to the manufacturer's site or do a web search, and see if you can find what maximum RAM speed the motherboard supports.

  • Step 6
    If you're building a new computer and need to buy RAM, look up the specs on your motherboard to find out what kind of memory it supports.

  • Step 7
    The RAM you buy should be no larger than the max supported module size, and should match the type and speed supported by the motherboard.

    What's your problem?bit ix38 quad gt motherboard with 2 gig of ddr2 ram i want to add a 1 gig stick of more ram that ive bought how do i do this? thanks windows seven


    Top view of motherboard, scroll down. (Thought you might also like to read the reviews, and Comments)

    http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/motherboards/2007/12/06/abit_ix38_quadgt/2

    Motherboard User Manual,

    http://www.theraptorpit.com/forum/index.php?/forum/124-abit-motherboard-tech-support-unofficial/

    1) On the motherboard the Blue ram memory slot that is closest to the copper heatsink, is ram memory Slot 1.
    Also known as DIMM 1.

    Ram memory ALWAYS has to be in this ram memory slot.
    The Processor reads ram memory Slot 1 first.

    2) The Blue ram memory slots are Slot 1 (DIMM 1), and Slot 3.
    (DIMM 3)
    The Black ram memory slots are Slot 2 (DIMM 2), and Slot 4.
    (DIMM 4)

    To run Dual Channel ram memory, means there are two LIKE ram memory modules ('Stick'), and they are installed in the SAME channel.

    This would mean to alike ram memory modules, in both Blue ram memory slots, or both Black ram memory slots.

    Since the ram memory modules need to be alike, they are generally purchased from the same manufacturer, and are the same kind.

    Running ram memory in a dual channel configuration, is supposed to increase ram memory 'speed', up to 30 percent.

    This is Baloney!
    May look good on paper, but in actual use in the field it's cr@p.
    Actual performance increase is more like 1 to 2 percent.
    This has been proven by Tom's Hardware, and many, many motherboards, ram memory, Processors, etc.

    So you have 2GB of DDR2 Sdram, huh?
    Is it just one 'stick' of ram memory, or are you referring to two 1GB sticks?

    If the above holds true install them in Slot 1 and Slot 3.

    If not, and it is a 2GB stick of ram memory, be sure it is installed in Slot 1 (DIMM 1)
    Install the 1GB stick in Slot 2.

    It isn't the same as the 2GB stick.
    It is 1GB.
    Does NOT go in a dual channel configuration.

    (Catching all this? There is NO dual channel ram memory!

    It is ram memory that is -> ALIKE, and used in a -> dual channel configuration.
    Used in two separate ram memory slots, that support the dual channel configuration.

    Sold with the advertising scheme of 'Dual Channel', but really just means the two ram memory modules, (Or four), are -> alike.

    1) Same Voltage used
    2) Same Ram Timings
    3) Same Chip Configuration
    4) Same size in amount
    5) Same frequency rate ('Speed')

    With ram memory in a dual channel configuration, the ram memory modules team up on the task.)

    I have a 512 DDR2 (533 FSB) RAM in one of my slot in Intel D102GGC2 Mother board,can i put a 2 GB DDR2 ram in another slot.If yes then What FSB will match and what is the maximum capacity of ram per slot?


    This motherboard will support maximum 2 GB of total system memory. so configuration is should be 1GB + 1GB or one 2GB in one slot. If you attempt to install 2GB + 512MB, this is unsupported. but you can try if might the system can read it or not. there is no serious problem for installing memory exceed than maximum system memory...
    Memory supported is DDR2 533 Mhz and DDR2 400 MHz...(sometimes on the market DDR2 533 will described as module name PC2-4200 and DDR2 400 as PC2 3200)

    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.

    I am using this ASUS (asus M2N-MX nvidia mcp61p chipset


    According to the manufacturer's web-site:

    http://usa.asus.com/product.aspx?P_ID=0pKBwEIE8tqMT4j7


    this motherboard has 4 x DIMM sockets,
    supporting a maximum of 4 GB
    of DDR2 800/667/533/ Non-ECC, Un-buffered Memory

    and supports Dual Channel memory architecture.

    So, add one 512MB DDR2 533 Mhz RAM into one of the slots,
    being sure to leave *ONE* *EMPTY* slot between the two sticks,
    in order to enable the high-performance "dual-channel" option.

    Try your computer -- it should feel faster.

    If you still think that need more RAM, buy two 512MB (or two 1024MB) DDR2 533 Mhz RAM, putting the 2 sticks into the two empty slots.

    Can i use ddr2 ram in my pc inplace od ddr1 i cn purchase pc 07?


    Hey there, Check for the slots given on your motherboard, whether all the slots are same; However a motherboard can support only one type of module either DDR1 or DDR2. your motherboard has only DDR1 slots. You cannot upgrade DDR1 to DDR2 cause the Memory Module or notches are different than eachother. Gimme Acknowladgement by rating me. Thanx - Romy Decostza

    Few questions about RAM memory?


    Solution:



    i)  LOW DENSITY modules have 100% compatiility with ALL systems and ALL chipsets.
        HIGH DENSITY modules only have 10% compatibility

        here compatablity means LOW DENSITY RAM are accepted by all system(100%)  or any make           system.. HIGH DENSITY RAM are accepted by 10% by only some system or computers...


    ii) in order to check system performance or amount of Computer RAM usage press the ctrl+alt+del
       simultaneously a new window(window task manager) will appear showing:

        CPU usage: showing the amount of CPU or processor utilized at that particular time.
        PF usage: showing the amount of RAM memory utilized at that particular time.
        Physical Memory: showing Total RAM Memory, Available Ram memory....

    iii) baiscally they are two types of RAM they are:

        DDR1:which is older one supported by older system  or older mother boards which is costlier
        DDR2: which is latest one supported by all new system or new mother boards which is less                         costlier

        DDR: double data rated ram......which will send data at a double rate compared to SD RAM

    iii) here color doesnt matter, these slots either support DDR1 or DDR2 but not both at a time
        
        DDR1 has 184 pins or gold plated pinssss... on the edge of the RAM
        DDR2 has 240 pins 

        so difference doesnot allow DDR2 to placed in DDR1 motherboards or vice versa...

    iv) it does have anything to do with no of chips on the RAM but they only differ whether it is DDR1 OR DDR 2(DDR2 are much faster than DDR1)

    NOTE: whatever may the the RAM, each RAM has FSB(called Frequency...) which determines the frequency of rate at which data is tranferred from RAM to processor(CPU)  usually in MHZ such as FSB 300, 400, 200 , 333...................

    more the FSB the faster data is transferred to the processor(CPU)

    dont worry even RAM with less FSB's work well with the processor....having 1 GB RAM or 2 GB RAM is engouh, it only matters with the speed of CPU ... but not RAM......
