If you want 1GB , Especially if your motherboard supports Dual Channel Memory capability, then you will want 2 512mb sticks.

However, I seen in some instances that purchasing a 1GB stick is cheaper then purchasing 2 512mb sticks depending on where you shop.

Try looking around on Newegg (personal favorite for shopping computer gear) or other places and see the various prices.

Another thing, to determine the ram you have in your system , I reccomend a few utilities to familiarize yourself with your computer.

One of them is called Belarc Advisor, and the other is SISoft Sandra which will identify your motherboard and tell you the memory type and timings so you can write down this information to take to the store you are shopping at so you do not get the wrong kind of memory by mistake.

Ram not working


Step 1:
A memory slot is a slot in your motherboard where you place your RAM (Random Access Memory) card. In layman's terms, the RAM is the "temporary memory" that the computer utilizes whenever it is turned on. If the computer cannot detect a RAM card installed in one of your memory slots, you have to troubleshoot the problem immediately.
Ensure that the problem is with the RAM slot and not the memory card. Turn off the computer, unplug all devices connected into the ports of your computer and open the computer casing. Refer to the manual of the computer to know the specific steps to follow in opening the computer casing. Remove the memory card from the RAM slot. To do this, unlock the card using both hands. Pull the card away from the slot to remove. Inspect the RAM card for any apparent physical damages. Wipe the card with a clean cloth to remove dust. Also wipe the memory slot in your motherboard. Place the RAM card back into the memory slot. Press the card into the slot until it clicks into place. Close the computer casing, connect the cables back into their respective slots and turn on the computer. Turn on the computer and see if the memory is detected. If the computer does not boot up, the RAM card is not detected by the computer. Assuming that you have two memory cards installed in the computer and the computer boots up, check if the second memory card is detected by the computer. Click "Start," right-click "Computer" and then "Properties." Under "System," check the amount of "Installed Memory (RAM)." If the RAM is not detected, the RAM slot or the RAM card itself may be malfunctioning. Place the RAM card into another memory slot in your motherboard and see if the card is detected. If it is detected, the other memory slot is malfunctioning. Do not install any RAM card into it to avoid further damage. If it is not detected, the RAM card may be malfunctioning. Insert another RAM card into the slot. If the RAM card is detected, the slot is malfunctioning.

I want to upgrade my video ram on my pc


Do you have a Integrated Intel Graphics? If so you may be able to increase video ram,a little, in BIOS, Video?, but, You can find many different Graphics Cards, Nvidia, AMD/ATI, based. Your motherboard Support PCI and PCI e x16 (best) , Take a look at Expansion Bus, PCI EXPRESS: http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/systems/op745/en/UG_en/dt_spec.htm#wp1133451 Graphics Cards come with many options of ram.

What are the hardware requirements for this motherboard in the way of memory, and graphics card? I have a pc2700 256M chip that is only seeing 191M of the total ram. Does it require ddr pc2100 instead? And...


Jeff, some of the system's ram memory is being borrowed. If you are using Integrated Graphics, this is where it is going.

[Integrated Graphics is also known as OnBoard Graphics.
On the motherBoard.

The GPU is soldered to the motherboard. (Hence you plug the monitor cable into the motherboard, via a VGA connector,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VGA_connector )

A dedicated graphics (adapter) card has it's own GPU.
(Graphics Processing Unit,

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GPU ]

Integrated Graphics uses some of the system's resources. The Processor, and Ram Memory.

A dedicated graphics card has it's own Processor, and Ram Memory.
(GPU, and graphics ram memory)


PC2100 is DDR Sdram that operates at a frequency rate of 266MHz.

PC2700 is DDR Sdram that operates at a frequency rate of 333MHz.

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

[Frequency Rate:
Proper 'computer speak' for Speed.
'Speed' is slang.

DDR Sdram:
Double Data Rate Sdram
Synchronous Dynamic Random Access Memory

MHz.
MegaHertz
Mega = Approximately 1 Million
Hertz stands for Cycles per Second.

PC2100 can operate Up To a frequency rate of 266 Million Cycles per Second.
PC2700 - 333 Million Cycles per Second ]

No, using PC2100 is going backwards, and will not help increase the Amount of ram memory, seen by the computer.

According to eMachines Support, the T2642 desktop computer's motherboard, uses an Intel 845GV motherboard chipset.

http://www.emachines.com/support/product_support.html?cat=Desktops&subcat=T%20Series&model=T2642

[Chipset, and Chip are slang terms for I.C.
Integrated Circuit.

The motherboard chipset used for the technology of the T2642 motherboard, is the Northbridge, and Southbridge chipset.

(Motherboard's for the Intel Core i3, i5, and i7, do not use this motherboard chipset technology)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Motherboard_diagram.svg

(CPU = Central Processing Unit. Another term used is Microprocessor, or simply Processor for short.
Memory Slots = Ram Memory slots ]

The Northbridge chip handles the faster processes of the computer.
The Processor, Ram Memory, and high speed graphics.

High speed graphics being AGP, or PCI Express.
Not a graphics card inserted into a PCI slot.

Integrated Graphics, or a graphics card inserted into a PCI slot, is a slower process of the computer.

Slower processes of the computer are handled by the Southbridge chip.

Northbridge (computing)

My son has my old computer and it needs a video card


Your information is slightly conflicting. Pentium is a type of processor, and AMD is another brand, your computer can't contain both types of processor. Your video card will either be AGP or PCI-e, depending on the model of the computer. If you'd like to leave me the model of the PC, I'll look it up for you.

The BIOS is unable to access the video system in order to write any error messages to the screen.

This is usually caused by a problem with the video card, or the memory on the video card. It can also be a motherboard issue.

If its onboard VGA (Video Card chip built on the motherboad, which I believe it is with a Compaq computer), it is possible the video chip went bad or might be a RAM problem. You can try to open up the case (unplugged of course) and take the RAM out and put it back in, or if you have more than one RAM chip try each one separately.

If you had another computer that uses the same type of RAM, you could try the RAM chips in another computer to make sure it is not the RAM that is causing the beep code.

But 1 long and 2 short beeps usually points to the video card/chip or the motherboard failure.

"Call of Duty" runs in slow motion on my PC.


Hi thomas,

Upgrading video cards will definitely increase in performance. You asked whether you should upgrade your entire PC or just the card and that really depends on the hardware you are running. If all of your hardware just barely meets the requirements than upgrading the videocard WILL give you a noticeable improvement but obviously it will not be as good as getting a better CPU and more RAM as well as a new card.

A good measure of a cards performance is based on the series of cards it is from. Your Geforce is from the 6000 series of Nvidia cards, they have 7000, 8000, and even 9000 series cards atm.

I would recommend something like an XFX Geforce 9800 GTX+ series card with 512MB of onboard memory, or any other competing card in the 200$ price range. This will definitely give you an increase in performance, and is a very popular card.

Hope this helps and please take a second to rate!
