Question about Gateway M675 Notebook

Adding memory to my Gateway M675 - problem with new card

My manual says that my model will use either a pc2700 or pc3200 module. I purchased 2 pc3200 1g modules and received them in the mail today. They don't fit!!! The notch is off on both just enough so the they won't slide in. Any ideas?? Should I have purchased the pc2700 instead? I called their support and they couldn't tell me anything:(.
Thanks!

Both DDR and DDR2 come in pc3200. You bought DDR2 when you needed DDR.

Type of memores for asus P5S880-VM MOTHERBOARD Q=? FROM==miko hozer


Your motherboard can take DDR1 pc2100, pc2700, or pc3200 memory modules up to 2.0 gb maximum. If you upgrade your memory you must do the following. If you are only adding 1 module it must match the other module that is already installed. If you are installing both modules you can use whichever speed you want. The higher the number the high the Mhz or speed BUT it will only run as fast in Mhz as your front side bus speed which I think is 800Mhz (pc3200).

I have an emachine T5026. Emachine tech swears this machine only supports pc2700 ram but the stickers on the factory installed ram says pc3200 256mb x 2 so i bought 2 memory masters pc3200 1gb x 2 sticks....


PC3200 is backwards compatible with PC2700. Meaning you can install PC3200 into your motherboard but it won't run any faster than would PC2700, however it will not cause any harm and should work fine.

Emachine's would say you need PC2700 most likely because they're trying to sell you some.

One of your new memory modules or the memory slots on your computer may be defective. I recommend installing a single stick of memory and booting your system. If it is successful then shut it down, disconnect the power and install another stick. Boot again and keep doing so and by process of elimination identify the bad memory stick or the bad memory slot.

This is the "likely" cause and isn't too uncommon.

Good luck.

I wish to add RAM in the PC. Mine motherboard-Epox-EP-4BDA533(I). ID(identification)-05/09/2003-i845d-6A69VPA8C-00. On it costs RAM 256Mb -DDR PC2100 266Mg FSB-400Mg. How many Mb it is possible to add....



Manufacturer Specifications - EPoX EP-4BDA533I Number of Slots:
Slot 1
Slot 2
Each memory slot can hold DDR PC2700,DDR PC3200 with a maximum of 1GB per slot.*
*Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory.
  • 184-pin DIMM Banking: 2 (2 banks of 1)
  • Chipset: Intel 845D
  • Error Detection Support: ECC and non-ECC
  • Graphics Support: AGP 4X
  • Max Component Density: 512Mb
  • Max Unbuffered DDR SDRAM: 2048MB
  • Module Types Supported: Unbuffered only
  • Supported DRAM Types: DDR SDRAM only
  • USB Support: 1.x Compliant
Q: What memory goes into my computer, and will a faster speed be backward-compatible?
A: DDR memory with support for DDR PC2700,DDR PC3200 speeds.
Because DDR memory is backward-compatible, you can safely upgrade your system with any of the guaranteed-compatible DDR speeds listed below, even if your manual calls for PC1600 or PC2100 speeds.
Q: How much memory can my computer handle?
A: 2048MB.
Adding the maximum amount of memory will improve performance and help extend the useful life of your system as you run increasingly demanding software applications in the future.
Q: Do I have to install matching pairs?
A: No.
No, you can install modules one at a time, and you can mix different densities of modules in your computer. But if your computer supports dual-channel memory configurations, you should install in identical pairs (preferably in kits) for optimal performance.
Q: Does my computer support dual-channel memory?
A: No.
Your system does not support dual channel.
Q: Does my computer support ECC memory?
A: Yes.
Your system supports ECC. You can put non-ECC modules into an ECC system, but be sure not to mix ECC and non-ECC modules within a system. Install the same type of modules that are already in your system.

MS 7142 TO INCREASE RAM


hiya

its a case of purchasing the new ram modules taking the old ram out and popping the new ram in

i wud recommend using OCZ, GEIL or Crucial memory modules as these are the best makes

the spped of the ram varies from system to system depending on the system bus speed
the most common speeds for this board is pc2100, pc2700 and pc3200
these speeds are as follows pc2100 - ddr200
pc2700 - ddr333 and pc3200 - ddr400

hope this helps

Can you add to much Ram for the processor to handle?


That additional RMA will be good for your computer so it will be much faster and don't worry everything should work fine there after adding new RAM to your computer....

RE: mother board not going on


Hi marlonvig, what type of memory (PC3200? or PC2700) memory are you using? What type in which slot?

The decription (In you're manual), refering to you're memory can be confusing.
You're manual says you can use up to 1GB of
PC3200 DDR400MHz only in Slot 1.
If you add DDR400MHz into slot 2. The board will not support it. (weird)!
If you want to reach 2GB of memory. You must use PC2700 (DDR333)MHz. 2x1GB PC2700 = 1GB DIMMS in both DIMM 1 & 2. You're board does not support DDR2 type memory.

Need you're manual? Download it from this link. Click on it.

KINGSTON VALUE RAM 1GB PC3200 MEMORY


Hi,
You have the answer in your question. I have checked the PC specification and you are right, it uses PC2700 memory. Therefore you need to install PC2700 memory. PC3200 memory will be the wrong speed and will not be supported.

SAMSUNG 1GB RAM 400MHZ PC3200


RAM has to be

Four 184-pin DDR DIMM sockets

Supports PC3200 (400 MHz) /PC2700 (333 MHz) / PC2100 (266 MHz) DDR DIMM type

Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory module is 1 GB

Maximum HP/Compaq approved memory is 4 GB
It has to be the same.


• If you are replacing a memory module, put the
new memory module in the same memory slot
from which the old memory was removed.
Or
• If you are adding a memory module, install the
new module into the socket nearest the
preinstalled module, and install additional
modules in the next available sockets
