Is it possible to give your old memory to a different series Dell computer

I'm buying more memory from Dell in the form of 2: 512MB cards. This leaves me with the cards I'm removing which are 2: 256MB cards. Can I give these to friends/family who own Dells that may not be exactly the 4300 series? -

In other words... - are there such things as card compatible cousins to the 430 series?

The easiest way to find out is use the memory confugurator at crucial.com, just run through the configurator for both machines and see if the memory cards match.

I have a dell optiplex G240.its ram is 256 and 512mb.but now 512mb ram doesnt support.what can i do?


Well, there are many different types of Ram (Memory) available for many different motherboards. Your current computer support a maximum of 1Gb of ram. And judging from the date it was released, your motherboard seems as though it only supports DDR Ram. Therefore you may either have to buy another set of ram or buy another computer (used if possible). Although the second option is only valid if you are looking for something that is faster than what you currently have. Personally speaking upgrading the memory for an old build will not give you the best performance out there.

List of Memory Type
Ranging from Slow to fast
-------------------------
DDR Memory
DDR2 Memory
DDR3 Memory
DDR4 Memory

Other Thought's
---------------
Re-seating your Ram(Memory) may help get your 512MB
ram running again, however if your 512MB ram is a faulty module it may fail to work.

Inspiron 531s will not boot up, keeps beeping, saying it is in power save mode. How do I fix the problem


System Beep Codes The Inspiron™ 531 / 531s system can emit a series of beeps during start-up if the display cannot show errors or problems. These series of beeps, called beep codes, identify various problems. One possible beep code consists of repetitive three short beeps. This beep code indicates the computer encountered a possible system board failure.
The series of beeps has a 3-second delay before it repeats. The series and delays continually loop until you press the power button.
Code Description Suggested Remedy 1 BIOS ROM checksum in progress or failure System board failure; covers BIOS corruption or ROM error 2 No memory modules detected
  1. If you have two or more memory modules installed, remove the modules, reinstall one module, and then restart the computer. If the computer starts normally, reinstall an additional module. Continue until you have identified a faulty module or reinstalled all modules without error.
  2. If available, install a good memory module of the same type into the computer.
  3. If the problem persists, contact Dell.
3 Chipset error (North and Southbridge chipset, DMA/IMR/Timer Error for Intel® platform); chipset error System board failure. Power LED is blinking amber. Time-Of-Day Clock test failure Gate A20 failure Super I/O chip failure Keyboard controller test failure 4 RAM read/write failure
  1. Ensure no special memory module/memory connector placement requirements exist.
  2. Verify the memory modules you are installing are compatible with the computer.
  3. If the problem persists, contact Dell.
5 Real time clock failure. Possible battery failure or system board failure.
  1. Replace the battery.
  2. If the problem persists, contact Dell.
6 Video BIOS test failure Video card failure 7 CPU cache test failure Processor failure

FIND THE AGE OF LAPTOP


The D600 line was introduced in 2004. The only accurate way to find the exact age of your laptop, or the PRODUCTION DATE is to contact Dell. Otherwise you would only be able to find out the general date which was the 2004-2005 years. After that they moved on to the D6X0 lines...D630, etc as the processors improved. Some more info on your unit
Latitude D600
The D600 (and simultaneously-introduced D800) was Dell's first business-oriented notebook based on the Pentium-M processor; it used the first-generation "Banias" Pentium M chips running on a 400 MT/s FSB on DDR memory. It had a PATA hard drive and a D-series modular bay, and used an ATI GPU Radeon 9000. It had a 14" screen, in regular (non-widescreen) form factor. Unlike later D6x0 series machines, both memory sockets were accessible from a single cover on the bottom of the system.
Many Latitude models had a near-clone Inspiron, in the case of the D600, it was the Inspiron 600M. Differences include that the 600M does not work with the Dell D-Dock, and the case styling is slightly different. The motherboards, screens and hard drive caddies are all physically interchangeable

I want to download my pictures from my sanyo 770 digial to my p.c


2 Options:

1. Your camera probably came with a USB cable. If so you need to connect that cable from your camera to your PC and turn on the camera. Your computer should automatically recognize that you've plugged it in and should run a "wizard" that will walk you through importing those photos.

2. Your PC may have a "multi-card reader" this is a series of slots that accept different sizes/types of memory cards from cameras etc. Your camera has a memory card that you can remove and place into one of these slots. Again once you've plugged in this memory card you should again get the wizard asking you'd like to do.

VGA monitor won't work on Dell XPS210


Is the connection different. If so you need a VGA to DVI converter. You can get this at Best Buy or Fry's or any computer store.

The memory issue should not be related. Go to control panel and then to the system icon and click system is should show the memory. You can also go in to the system bios to see actually how much you have. When the system boots. It should give you an option to go to the setup screen. The screen goes by quick so you may need to reboot a couple of times.

Please rate my response.

Memory card compatibility with 4300


Are you talking about the memory sticks inside the computer?

If so, then yes. If you have DDR memory, it will work in most computers that use DDR memory. It's best not to mix memory, so you'd want your friends to completely remove their old stuff first.

When you compare your RAM to theirs, match up the length and where the notches are along the gold contacts of the memory sticks. If they match perfectly, then you're good to go!

From oldest to newest, we have these kinds of memory
EDO
SDRAM
RDRAM
DDR
DDR2
DDR3

Brand new PC's are using 2 and 3 (2 being the most common) Most PC's are just plain DDR because that used to be the most common. Other than this, there are other differences in memory, but they moreoften don't make a difference. =-]

Unsuccessful memory upgrade


I work on GX 620 dells alot. I work on them for a school district.

They have alot of issues. Particularly with memory issues, try reseating the memory or trying a different memory slot. You shouldnt have to under clock it. Just run it as normal.

If it beeps on start up, then its probably a memory problem. The dell website has online support and will give you a list of dell beep codes

http://www.support.dell.com/

you can type in your dell service tag number located on the back, or just picking out the model.

Try using just using the new memory stick by itself without the old ones.

If your computer came with a disk ( it should) It either Blue or Black, if its black, boot from cd and it will load a test program, try using that to check that the memory is good. If its blue then its older and just lets you re-install windows.

If its looping, where it gives you a black screen with options to boot in safe mode but restarts no matter what option you pick.

Load the windows cd like your going to re-install, Boot from cd ( F12 ) on boot, pick boot cd drive and when it loads, pick ( R) for repair and when it goes to command prompt, type in. ( chkdsk C: /p ) exactly like that

it will run a repair. When done, type EXIT and hit enter.

When it restarts, remove the disk and see if it gives you the option again to pick how to start windows.

Pick ( star windows normally ) see if this works.

If the repair works then it wasnt the memory as much as it was just Dells Crappy hardware configuration.

Let me know what happens and i can try to help you further.

It could be a bad memory stick that you happened to get.

Good luck.

Cannot upgrade Memory on Compaq Presario 2110US


hi Rileysue ... what is the model of your HP? ... the ram modules generally have to match each other ... brand should make no difference at all .... start by removing all of the old and add one stick of the new ... you may also have to go into the BIOS each time and verify the change in ram size ... then add the next stick and so on...
