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.

Will pc2-5300 memory work in emachines t5082?


Yes it will work

Memory Type: DDR2 PC2-5300, DDR2 (non-ECC)
Maximum Memory: 2GB
Slots: 2
Each memory slot can hold DDR2 PC2-5300 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.*
*Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory.
Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.

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 have purchased an ASUS ASUS P5K SE Motherboard. I want to run a MDT RAM at 667 Mhz DDR2, is it possible as it says nothing in the asus website The ASUS P5K SE Motherboard Qualified Vendors List (QVL)...


"The Asus P5K SE Motherboard Qualified Vendors List (QVL) says that it only runs ram at 1066MHz and MDT is not on the list"

Really? I beg to differ.

The motherboard manual states,
" The chipset officially supports the memory frequency up to DDR2 800MHz. Tuned by the Asus Super Memspeed Technology, this motherboard natively supports up to DDR2 1066MHz."

1) Notice the 'Up To'.
Supports UP TO 800MHz, and with the SMT it supports UP TO 1066MegaHertz.

It will support DDR2 at 667MHz, 800MHz, and 1066MHz (With SMT)

The QVL doesn't encompass all ram memory that is available out there.

The Ram Memory used has to be;
A) Unbuffered
B) DRAM chips used cannot be any larger than 64MB

[DRAM chip.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Generic_DDR_Memory_%28Xytram%29.jpg

The Black rectangular chips, shown on the module of DDR Sdram example above, are DRAM chips.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DRAM

C) Should follow the JEDEC standard for DDR2 Sdram.
For one, it should follow the JEDEC standard for DDR2 voltage.

1.8 Volts.

Some high performance ram is set to use a slightly higher voltage. The Asus motherboard is set to use DDR2 at 1.8 Volts by default. (Factory settings=Default)

The MDT DDR2 at 667MHz is not high performance ram memory. It will be set to use 1.8 Volts.

I posted the link so that if you have a motherboard manual, and it does not have the information this one has, then you now have the official Asus version.

Ram Memory information starts on Page 37.
Page 40 shows the QVL for DDR2 at 800MHz.
Page 41 shows the QVL for DDR2 at 667MHz.

This QVL does not list MDT either.
It's okay, it will work. The MDT ram memory has SPD support.

[Serial Presense Detect

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Serial_presence_detect

Maximum Total Amount of ram memory is 8GB. You better have an O/S that will recognize 8GB, however, to realize this.

Has to be a 64bit O/S. (Operating System)
Windows XP Home, and Pro that are 32bit versions, will only recognize 3.2 to 3.5GB of ram memory.

Maximum Amount for EACH ram slot is 2GB.

If you only install one ram memory module, make sure it is in Slot 1. (DIMM A1 on that motherboard. The ram memory slot that is closest to the Processor)

350 Watt PSU? Not planning on gaming I see.

Depends on what PSU you have (Power Supply Unit), but it could be old enough to be just putting out 70 percent, of the maximum rated wattage.

245 Watts.

Tried to upgrade ram with 2 new pc133 sticks of 256mb ea. Didn't work. What's wrong? Are there switches on the motherboard I need to change? Or something else?


No there are no DIP switches to change, or jumpers to move on your motherboard, in regards to your BIOS recognizing ram memory installed.
(BIOS. Basic Input/Output System. This tiny program, {64MB in size usually}, that is burned into your BIOS chipset, is what recognizes ram memory on your computer)

Things to know about the older Sdram ram memory.
1.It's really SDR Sdram. Single Data Rate Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory.
DDR is Double Data Rate Sdram, DDR2 is Double Data Rate 2 Sdram, and so on.

Point? All ram from SDR to DDR3, IS Sdram.

2.Standards have been set by JEDEC for computer ram memory starting from DDR Sdram on up. This standards were not implemented back in the day of SDR Sdram.

Point? Ram memory manufacturers didn't all follow the same standard, and ram memory made for one computer, would Not work in another computer.
This means you need THE ram memory for YOUR eMachines computer.

Main factors when buying SDR Sdram,
A.Correct type. You know this. SDR Sdram.
168 gold plated contact pins on the bottom of the ram 'stick'. (82 on each side)

B.Correct 'Speed'. ('Speed' is slang for Frequency Rate) You know this. SDR Sdram that operates at a frequency rate of 133MHz. (Or also known as PC133)

C.It must be low density Non-ECC ram memory. It cannot be high density ECC. (Error Control Correcting. Used for Server computers mostly)

D.Correct CAS Latency. Also known as Ram Timings. 3-3-3-3-2 would be normal for SDR Sdram.

E.Correct Chip Configuration. How the DRAM chips are accessed. DRAM chips are the black rectangular chips on each side of your ram memory 'stick'. Also what size the DRAM chips are in MegaBytes. (MB)

F.What the Maximum TOTAL Amount is for the motherboard. Is it 256MB? 512MB? Or more?

G.What the Maximum Amount is for EACH ram 'slot'. (Correct speak for 'Slot' is Bank)

H.Do you have four ram 'slots'? You MUST have a ram stick in Slot 1. This is the slot closest to the processor. It is the first ram slot the processor 'reads'.

Computer will not work with extra 1gb ram


Hi,
It sound like you have incompatible memory. Try taking out the original 256 and test with the 1 gig. Keep in mind some PC requires memory to be paired. If you only have one, 1gig memory chip you might need to get another. I would try removing the 256 first. The specification of the motherboard would also tell you the memory usage.
Let me know if this helps!!

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......

Memory module


Your motherboard supports 533MHz memory modules, no more. If you put anything higher in, it will work, but only at the speed of 533MHz, so there's not much point in aiming any higher. Just make sure what you're buying is a DDR2 533MHz memory module, and it's best to get them in increments of 2. If you have 4 slots on your motherboard, get another 2x512MB modules of RAM. If you're running Windows Vista, it might be worth considering 2x1GB modules. I think that pretty much covers your question, if you have anything else to ask, feel free to reply.
