Memory modules for G550

Q: Memory modules for G550

Hello Forgive my status as a technoramus, roll your eyes as necessary, then please skinny me on what I need to know to increase the 2G memory for my G550 laptop. Depending on price, I may go as high as 8G, but 4G or 6G are options, as well. So, what's compatible, and can I simply add to the existing 2G, or do I need to replace that module? Much obliged

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I hope someone can give me some advice. I've a friend with a G550 running Windows 7 32 with only 2 GB of RAM, and it's woefully slow. I suggested he update to 4 GB (his system is obviously only capable of addressing 4 GB) and, as I recently updated my G560 to 8 GB (I'm running 64 bit Windows) I wondered whether I could give him one of my two old 2 GB modules (1 original, one added Crucial), or replace both, to upgrade his system? On paper, the memory seems to be similar to my untutored eye - am I missing some incompaibility between the two systems? Thanks for any help you can give.

I have a P4 Titan series motherboard and actual memory modules are 2 X 512 DDR 333/266/200 DIMM slots (2). I want to upgrade to 2 X 1gb. which is the max. I am looking at 1gb DDR400 ECC. Would this be compatible ?
Thanks
 

A:memory modules

Go here and allow the Crucial System Scanner to load and run.

After the scan is finished and a report is displayed, copy-and-paste the webpage address to that report here so we can go there and view it.

------------------------------------------------------------------

If the motherboard is designed for DDR333/266 modules, it'll probably accept and run with DDR400 modules, but they'll run at the slower speed that the motherboard supports.

-----------------------------------------------------------------

The larger the number, the faster the speed.

DDR400 is DDR PC3200(400 MHz)

DDR333 is DDR PC2700(333 MHz)

DDR266 is DDR PC2100(266 MHz)

I have just bought a load of 128 MB RAM and 256 MB RAM modules to upgrade a number of PCs ranging from 450 MHz P3 to 933 MHz P3.

The modules were specified as 100MHz SDRAM DIMMS, and although most of the PCs were non-branded, I was able to check the motherboard details and according to all the specs, there was no reason why these memory modules should not have been OK.

However, with the exception of one 600 MHz P3, none of the other PCs accepted the memory correctly - they all registered exactly half of the actual memory on the module.

I have heard of problems where double-sided modules would only register half their memory, but in this case all the modules were single sided. (I did not order them as single sided, they just came like that even though the spec was 16x64 for the 128MB and 32x64 for the 256MB which suggests double-sided to me.)

Where is the problem and how can I make sure I get memory that works properly?

Thanks.
 

A:Memory modules

Many new memory modules cause that problem. The issue is the addressability of the individual chips. The fewer number of actual physical memory chips the module has, the newer the memory support chipset on the MB needs to be to properly address all the memory. The address lines from the individual chips come directly to the module interface connection, and the MB has to be designed to use them. Some omit the high-order address lines to save money, and as a result they only address half the memory. I've personally traded several people older modules for new ones to solve this issue for them, it's quite common.

Hello,

I recently added some extra memory to my PC. My local superstore advised me that the unit they sold me was the same as the one already installed. This seems to be not so.

A few memory module questions:

1) Given a memory module with timing of 5-5-5, is that otherwise known as Cas Latency 5? Is 6-6-6 Cas Latency 6?

2) Which of the two is more performance oriented?

3) Some mobos I am looking at on newegg.com bear the requirement "Only DDR2-800 memory supporting JEDEC approved 1.8V operating with timings of 5-5-5 or 6-6-6 is supported on Intel Desktop Boards based on Intel 965 Express Chipsets." In this instance, "Intel Desktop Boards" are those from Abit or Asus that accommodate Intel CPUs.

Is it sufficient to find DDR2-800 5-5-5 modules running 1.8V or is the JEDEC seal of approval also mandatory?

4) Is 1.8V synonymous with JEDEC?

Thanks.
 

A:1.8V JEDEC Memory Modules

Assuming you have a working system, you should try 4AllMemory and use their [Check My System] applet.

The applet will return a list with the exact specs for the DIMMs you need to match your system/motherboard.

Note I am not saying you need to buy from them, but their applet is really neat.

I was given an IBM PC300GL Model 6561 with a monitor on the weekend. I upgraded the HD from a 3228mb to 6449mb out of a similar machine. The upgraded drive has Win98 SE. Also added a 10/100 DLink NIC. Both installed ok. The issue with this is the memory. It hade 32mb dimm NP in it and gave a #164 parity error for the get go. In researching the IBM web site I found all the specs and the Mem chart is under the cover as well. I have 2 - 32mb modules at 66mHZ, 1 - 128mb PC133. I also tried 2 - 64mb PC100 dimms with no luck as well. At one point the 2 - 32mb modules worked and I was able to install all of the hardware it found. After setting up the video and having to reboot the parity error came back? I have tried all of the appropriate combinations of memory and all I get now is an a 2 beep parity error and then System Halted. There is a BIOS upgrade available that I have downloaded but not yet tried. Is that worth a try? Any suggestions are welcome.

If so, any software names/products that you have tried and can recommend.
 

A:Testing memory modules?

You want the Free Download => ISO image (zip)

Unzip the downloaded file. You will get an .iso image file. This file is burned to create a boot CD. To burn an image file you can't just copy the file to a CD. You have to use an image burning utility. Windows doesn't inculde one natively. If you don't have a third-party image burning program you can use this one:

You would be running one stick of RAM at a time. If you have more than one, remove to leave just one, then run the test.
On the screen, you will see your CPU type and your chipset type on the top left.
The program run a series of 9 tests on the stick of RAM. A complete run of the 9 tests is one Pass.
The progress is shown at the top right: total Pass progress, and the progress of the currently running test. Some tests take longer than others. I ran a test on a single stick of 1 GB of RAM and one Pass of 9 tests took about an hour. Different hardware will take more or less time.

Hello, i own a xw8400 and want to use 4x8GB memory modules. I bought 64GB (8x8GB) DDR2 FB Fully Buffered PC2-5300F 667 Memory and they are accepted by the system. But - after some time the computer goes down / is switched off. There's no bluescreen or other hint helping to find the cause. The machine is switching of like pulling the power cord. At first i thought it might be a cooling problem. So i checked the temperature and it seems to be in regular limits (about 28-30C air temperature). I found info in the web, that 32 GB on that machine (2 CPU) should only be possible with a riser card (8x4GB). On the other hand it might only be a result of the fact that 8GB modules were not available at this time.I have two questions: * Is it possible to use 8GB modules on a xw8400 system with 2 CPU?* i am currently testing the modules with memcheck but is there any way to get diagnostic information why the system is shutting down?Thx G.

A:8GB Memory Modules for xw8400 / xw8600?

This might relate.  I have not confirmed this but I believe the memory controller on the xw8400 is the same as on the xw6400.   I noted for a prior project that HP officially supported specific 8GB sticks in the xw8600, and that the xw6600 and xw8600 memory controllers were the same.  That gave me the idea that perhaps, though not documented, those same sticks for the xw8600 could work properly in the xw6600. I got some of those HP 8GB sticks and confirmed that they would run in my xw6600 builds just fine.  But, they would not run in my xw6400 builds.... same sticks, same perfectly functioning workstations if they had HP 4GB sticks in place. I believe you are running into a memory controller issue on that older generation xw8400 workstation..... the earlier (6400/8400) and later (6600/8600) generation workstation familes I note above have different memory controller chipsets.

Upon opening up a Dell Dimension 8100 for non-bootup problems I realize this animal has these memory modules with heat spreaders.

When checking on pricing on these modules, one online memory shop indicates that these particular modules MR16R1628AFO-CK8 800-45 memory modules have been discontinued. Other sites seem to be selling them as normal inventory.

These modules are the 184-pin RDRAM modules not the 232-pin modules. Are these modules prone to keeping a Dell from booting up?

When troubleshooting this Dell computer I unplugged everything from the mobo up to and including swapping power supplies with no luck in the computer even powering up (the CPU fan doesn't come on at all). I even swapped out the Pentium 4 CPU with another and still no boot up.

While searching the internet for an answer, I found this one Google item from another forum indicating this exact memory module failing and not being able to boot up the computer. Are these memory modules that tempermental? I read that these modules must be installed in matched pairs.

For this particular job I'm thinking either the memory module(s) may have gone bad, the mobo went south, or the BIOS is dead (replaced the battery with no change). Before I end up ordering another mobo I'd like to know if the problem could be the memory modules going bad.

Thanks,

Craig
 

A:184-pin RDRAM RIMM memory modules 800 MHz

RD RAM = complete nightmare. I'd suggest it would be cheaper to get an entire new AMD system (MOBO, memory and processor) rather than trying to get more RD RAM, especially as you'll have to buy a pair of RD modules as they don't work singly.

Hi,

I'm really hoping that someone can point me in the right direction to solve the problem I'm having trying to upgrade the memory in my wife's computer. I've ordered and received a matching pair of 512MB memory modules from Crucial to replace the existing single 512MB memory module.

The problem is that the PC freezes when both the memory modules are installed at the same time (the Intel logo of the motherboard does not appear, so I don't get change to visit the BIOS configuration screen and there are no beep codes). Both of the new memory modules work fine when installed in isolation.

Interestingly, the PC does boot OK with 1GB if I have the old memory module and either of the new memory modules installed, but only in single channel mode. The PC (eMachines e3042) is based on an Intel D102GGC2 motherboard which should support double data rate.

The m/b has been updated to the latest BIOS version, and I've tried using a higher power PSU (the original was only rated at 288W) and installing a dedicated graphics card (previously relying on the shared-memory ATI graphics on the motherboard). Neither of these helped.

A:PC Hangs with two memory modules installed

RELEVANCY SCORE 54.8

I have an ECS K7S5A motherboard w/a SIS 735 chipset, AMD Athlon XP chip. I was running 2 256k memory modules in my system, Accubyte brand. One went bad so I'm now down to one 256k module. I've tried installing two different 1 GB modules in my board and neither worked. (One generic industry standard and one Samsung module.) Both times the system went thru the bootup routine fine, checked memory and hd's etc, but then when it got to the point it should boot into Windows, it just sits there.

The memory module specs: PC2100 (64x8) 16C 266Mhz DDR 184Pin DIMM. The 256k module, the one that works in my machine, is made by Accubyte, but I can't find that anywhere on the internet.

The manual for the mb says it will take 1 GB of memory, so that's not the problem.

Any suggestions would be much appreciated. I am sick of running on only 256k!

Thanks,
Harold

My motherboard is a Z77 Asrok Extreme 6.

It has four dimm slots. I have One kit of 8 gigabyte memory from Gskill that is DDR3. 'dual channel' (11-11-11-28) PC 2133.

If I get another kit of 8 gig from ANOTHER vendor and its different timings can I put them into the alternate slots and have it work? Say I buy Corsair (9-9-9-9) PC 1600. Would the two kits work against each other since they are different timings? Is this NOT recommended?


Here is another better question. What if I buy the exact same memory from Gskill and drop them in as well? So I have two kits of dual channel 8 gig ram for a total of 16 gigs. Both kits would be same type/speed and latency. Will this work or do I need to use 'quad channel'?

Edited for spelling.

I'm thinking that different timings will cause issues with Dual Channel functionality. I'm also thinking that Dual Channel only functions if all modules can operate in dual mode. If you are not planning on operating in Dual Channel mode, I don't think it matters. However the modules should operate with the same timing, if they are to be linked together.

Anyway without actually knowing for sure, those are my thoughts.

My ZBook came with 2x4 GB memory modules and I want to upgrade with additional 2x8 GB. It is the same manufacturer and specifications, only the size is different. There are four memory module slots, how do I put the memory modules for best performance? Maybe: 8 GB in slot 1 and 3, 4 GB in slot 2 and 4

Appreciate some assistance.

Anyone own this type of PC who can tell which memory bank is Bank 1 (or 0) and Bank 2 (or 1)?

To access the memory modules the right side panel needs removed, but need to know if Bank 1 (or 0) is the one towards the front of the pc, or the one towards the back of the pc.

Trying to help someone by phone.

Thanks for the help.

As far as I can see I have currently dual channel DDR3 RAM memory modules.
Assume it would not be written on a label sticker on the ram modules:
How can I find out if a ram modules support dual channel or not?

As I learned I have to put dual channel mondules into different channel slots to get full speed.

My motherboard has current 4 slots:
Channel A: slot 1 + slot 2
Channel B: slot 1 + slot 2

Assume I put the 2 modules into the 2 slots of channel A.
How much performance/speed loss do I get approximately?

What happens when I have two single channel ram modules:
Does it matter where (in which slots) I put them?

You can buy sets of RAM that work together,
If you have more RAM modules that are the same you can try them out in your PC It will work or it won't
Dual Channel is selected in the BIOS (this can happen automatically on some boards)

Hello,I got a new laptop HP Probook 440 G4 that came with one 8 GB RAM memory module 2400 MHz CL17 1.2V 260pin SODIMM from Samsung. It has Intel i5 7200 CPU.I was expecting it to come with one 8 GB RAM 2133 MHz memory module, based on their description when I made the order, so I prepared another (my) 8 GB 2133 MHz module to add it to the laptop when it arrives.Would you please help me with a couple of questions, so I can see what options are available to me? 1. Can I mix one  DDR4 8GB 2400MHz CL17 module with one DDR4 8GB 2133MHz CL16 module to make total 16GB RAM? 2. Is it better if I mix one 2400MHz CL17 8GB module with another 2400MHz 8GB but with CL16 ? 3. Can this HP Probook 440 G4 with i5 7200u CPU support 32GB RAM (2 modules of 16GB DDR4 2400MHz CL14 or CL17)? During my work I often run a couple of virtual VBOX machines on my laptop, where each virtual machine uses 8GB of RAM, so having 32GB RAM on the laptop would be useful. Thank you,Buki

Hi Buki,Manual: http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c05269107According to MSG, it comes with PC4-17000, 2133MHz, DDR4 SODIMMs�8-GB , HP part number 820570-001�http://partsurfer.hp.com/ShowPhoto.aspx?partnumber=820570-001Both the RAMs are DDR4 1.2V 260-pin SO-DIMM SDRAM.If it is currently harbouring 2400MHz , it down clocks to 2133MHz i.e., configured speed. Latency is nothing to be worried about (CL17, CL14).Page 2, max 16gb is what is listed.Get module with exact specs, voltage, configuration as listed in the manual. It is guaranteed to work.By mixing 2400MHz with 2133MHz, both will work in 2133MHz dual channel mode.Go through page 36, 37 in manual for instructions.RegardsVisruth

I've got a Gigabyte 81845GVM-RZ mobo with a 256 MB Hynix DDR266. I just bought a Kingston 512MB DDR333 module (because it costs the same as the 256MB). Which one should I insert into the first or slot 0 to obtain the best performance and/or stability ? I guess I will be getting only a 266MHZ speed but my ram will increase to 768 MB ?

Hello,

This is a really rubbish and simple question, but I cant seem to find an answer.

I have a Gigabyte 7N400 Pro2 rev.1 MOBO - as you may have guessed from the title.

I have a strip of 512MB RAM - PC3200 DDR.

Now, my question:

Is the reason I put PC3200 in there because it only takes 3200, or can I put in anything I like...? or even different types togther?

ie 512 PC3200 and 512 PC2700

or does it all have to be the same..... and more importantly - what can this motherboard take?

There are 4 DIMM slots.

please dont reply and tell me to look in the manual - i dont have it and the manual section on the Gigabyte website says "Coming Soon" which is obviously never gonna happen as this mobo is old and has since been forgotten about.

either that, or im stuck in a time paradox

someone PLEASE help me

Can I remove one of the 512 MB modules and install the 1 GB module to get total 1,5 GB RAM or need both modules the same memory size?

A:Changing memory modules in Satellite M30X-165

According notebook specification you can upgrade your machine up to 2GB of RAM so you can use one 1GB RAM and one module with 512MB. Important is that you use 100% compatible memory modules.
Just for your info: compatible PC2700 1GB memory module has part number PA3313U-1M1G.

Take memtest. Run for 8 passes and test each stick in a know good slot for an additional 6 passes.
RAM - Test with Memtest86+





Quote:
The goal is to test all the RAM sticks and all the motherboard slots.

Check your motherboard manual to ensure the RAM sticks are in the recommended motherboard slots. Some motherboards have very specific slots required for the number of RAM sticks installed.

If you get errors, stop the test and continue with the next step.

1. Remove all but one stick of RAM from your computer (this will be RAM stick #1), and run Memtest86 again, for 7 passes.*Be sure to note the RAM stick, use a piece of tape with a number, and note the motherboard slot.
If this stick passes the test then go to step #3.

2. If RAM stick #1 has errors, repeat the test with RAM stick #2 in the same motherboard slot.*If RAM stick #2 passes, this indicates that RAM stick #1 may be bad. If you want to be absolutely sure, re-test RAM stick #1 in another known good slot.
*If RAM stick #2 has errors, this indicates another possible bad RAM stick, a possible motherboard slot failure or inadequate settings.
3. Test the next stick of RAM (stick #2) in the next motherboard slot.*If this RAM stick has errors repeat step #2 using a known good stick if possible, or another stick.
*If this RAM stick has no errors and both sticks failed in slot#1, test RAM stick #1 in this slot.

I have a GA-EX58-UD5 motherboard with 6 memory slots.

I've read so many different views on this and just need a definitive answer and this forum has always provided me with a wealth of knowledge, so thanks... With what I am working with, what is my best option? Should I stick with the 6x2GB modules at 1600 MHz or switch to the 4x4GB modules at 2133MHz? OR if you have other options, I'm more than willing to listen. I know I should have posted here before purchasing the new ram... but I'm here now. I can always send it back. If you need more info on my system, feel free to ask. Thanks for any and all help.

A:6x2GB 1600MHz vs 4x4GB 2133MHz Memory Modules

well in my experience ram clock past some limit doesnt have much visible benefit (well benchmarks may say othervise) but real experiencie is not noticeable. I dont do extreme oc so i dont know if that helps in ocing cpu.
in my opinion main reason for upgade would be you use less of your ram slots

i think 4x4 is better than 6x2..

Hallo,

I tried to upgrade the memory in my P3500.
currently there is 1 256MB module installed in the slot beneath the keyboard.

I purchased 2x 512MB SO-DIMM PC133 ram modules, but both lead to errors / BIOS-beeps. I tried different combinations:

keyboard-slot: 512
bottom-slot: empty
--> long short

keyboard-slot: empty
bottom-slot: 512
--> long short short

keyboard-slot: 512
bottom-slot: 256
--> long short

keyboard-slot: 256
bottom-slot: 512
--> long short short

keyboard-slot: 512
bottom-slot: 512
--> long short (pause) long short short

This sounds as if the bios refuses the 512mb modules
I guess the beeps mean:
long short - keyboard-slot ram refusal
long short short - bottom-slot ram refusal

but according to the manual it should be possible to install 1 or 2 512mb modules. What am I doing wrong?
Do I need a BIOS update? (currently installed: "ACPI BIOS 1.20")

If only a new BIOS supports 512mb modules - is there a possbility to upgrade the bios from unix?
(the only BIOS download I found on the Toshiba support pages unfortunately just works for windows)

Help would be much appreciated...

A:Portege 3500 - 512MB memory modules lead to error

Yes, you can upgrade your 3500 up to 1024 mb memory ( 2 x 512 mb ) but only with the right modules
You need *16 x 32 ( 16 chip architecture )* PC133 , 3,3v sdram modules ( 144 pins so-dimm )

I fear that your 512 mb modules are not compatible :-( you can count the chips on the module, there should be 8 chips on both sides of the module
