Q: XPS8700 Memory upgrade with Kingston Memory

Can the XPS8700 be upgraded with Kingston KCP313NS8/4 Memory?

Preferred Solution: XPS8700 Memory upgrade with Kingston Memory

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.)

A: XPS8700 Memory upgrade with Kingston Memory

Thank you for your message.Yes, this memory is compatible with the system. This system model has 4 memory slots & supports a maximum up to 32 GB @ 1600 MHz DDR3/DDR3L (1.5 V).However, if you use memory stick of two different speeds, the memory will be down- clocked to the lowest speed.We would recommend you to look for a memory which has a speed of 1600 MHz for better performance.

Adding memory: is "system specific" memory worth it? (Kingston DDR4) I have a recent P50, and want to add more memory to it. I'm planning to go with Kingston. I've heard it's better to avoid "Value" memory. But I'm a bit stuck on which of the different Kingston lines to go with beyond that. Is there any real difference in getting the "system specific" memory, as opposed to, say, the HyperX? Do Lenovo laptops tend to do ok with the Kingston HyperX? Specifically, the "system specific" memory I was looking at is: Kingston 16GB 260-Pin DDR4 SO-DIMM DDR4 2133 (PC4 17000) System Specific Memory Model, KCP421SD8/16 And the "gamer targeted" memory I was looking at is: HyperX Impact 16GB 260-Pin DDR4 SO-DIMM DDR4 2133 (PC4 17000) Laptop Memory Model HX421S13IB/16 Kingston has a memory finder tool on their site, which points to the System Specific memory. However, I called them and they said this particular HyperX should work too. I'm sure this is not a novel observation, but I was surprised to find that the "system specific" memory is more expensive than the gamer-targeted HyperX. (At least, once you take into account that those go on sale more often.) I'd in theory rather go with the HyperX because it claims to be fast, etc. On the other hand, there is in theory some appeal to the idea that the System Specific is guaranteeing compatibility. On the other hand, it'd suck to buy the System Specific and find out it's basically just the same thing as, say, Va... Read more

What will be the better brand to buy if you had to choose between these two.

Corsair or Kingston HyperX T1

Kingston HyperX T1
KHX1600C9D3K3/6GX 6GB 1600MHz DDR3 Non-ECC CL9 (Kit of 3) XMP 9-9-9-27 1.65V Intending to purchase 2 sets for 12GB of Ram

Corsair

http://www.corsair.com/products/corei7/faq.aspx
It says here the clock speed is PC3-12800 (Haven't got a clue what this means) http://www.corsair.com/products/corei7/default.aspx

Would like 12GB of memory for video editing.

Instead of starting another thread because there is something else I'm confused about. Is there much difference between CL7 and CL9 and will you notice the difference?
 

A:Memory - Corsair or Kingston

Personally, I've always preferred the Kingston brand over Corsair in general. Although others who've had more experience with both may chirp in with a more thorough rationale.

CL7/CL9 are latency measures, but I couldn't tell you if it's much of a noticeable difference. Since I assume you'll be doing heavy video editing rather than plain old web browsing, it'll be more likely to be a noticeable difference, and of course CL7 is the better choice (at least on paper).

By the way, PC3-12800 is just an alternative unit of measure for the RAM speed. 1600 MHz = PC3-12800. Here's a link to a decent article if you want to understand how RAM speeds work.

I was looking to upgrade my memory from 1GB to 2GB because of my upgrade to vista. Newegg.com has some great prices and Kingstons Hyperx ram stood out to me well basically because of its appearance and price. I emailed kingston and they told me the Hyperx is not compatible with my pc (Dell Dimension 3000), but their regular ram is which is about the same price. I was just wondering if anyone has ever used this ram before or if they know if it would work with my pc. I have it ordered already and have to wait till after the weekend to try to install it.

What dang in tarnation is HyperX memory? Can it be mixed with the regular memory stick?
 

A:Kingston HyperX Memory

It's a brand, or series, like Chevy. It's one of Kingston's higher performance series of products.

You generally shouldn't mix memory unless it's a perfect match. Do the speeds, voltages, and timings match up? Is the capacity correct for your system?

You can choose approved memory from here: http://www.ec.kingston.com/ecom/configurator_new/mfrmod.asp

Or let this scan your system and suggest their RAM: http://www.crucial.com/systemscanner/

You'll still want to check it against what you have installed now though.

A:kingston memory stick

I of course do not mean to sound rude by any stretch of the imagination but given the number of views without a response to a possibly easy problem to fix, I think members are confused about your question. By memory stick do you mean thumbdrive or RAM? If it's a thumbdrive and your computer recognizes it, what's causing you to not access it (an error message, etc). What do you mean the virus scan and file system was gone? Is there any way you can give a more concise version of what's happening?

Memory compatibility is more so a motherboard thing then an OS thing. You do not need to worry about it at all.

Hello all,

I have a Kingston 100 G2 USB memory stick (8GB - formatted with FAT32).

I use this stick a lot, and is it a work USB. Just recently my home PC has not been wanting to play ball with it.

This is what happens:

- I plug my stick into ANY USB port on the PC
- No automatic detection, no automatic drive letter assignment, not in Disk Management
- After 2 minutes OR a forced refresh in Disk Management, the device will detect
THEN, either
- The device shows up (is detected), drive letter assigned, and can be accessed as normal.
- Windows reports that the device needs to be re-formatted, and appears as a RAW file system in Disk Managment

Before you ask me to just re-format the disk (I do have backups!), read this:

- The memory stick works on any other PC/laptop fine (including my Win 7 x64 at work, XP Pro x86 on a laptop and in Fedora Linux - and every other PC/laptop it has been plugged into)
- My other memory stick (a Kingston DT1, 1GB) detects as normal - everytime.

So this means the following:

- The memory stick is fine. Its not defective.
- The USB Bus controllers on my HOME PC (the one with the problem) are working
- Disk Management service(s) are working as normal (correctly assigning drive letters)

The only odd thing I can see is in Device Manager, in which this keeps showing up:

WPD FileSystem Volume Driver (w/ Error 31)

I have never seen this before. It doesn't normally show up. I can only guess this is causing the problems... Read more

A:Intermittent Fault With Kingston 100 G2 USB Memory Stick

Just giving you guys a running follow up of things I am trying.

I backed up all the files again, from one of the tries when it does connect and detect properly.

I then Safely Removed, and reconnected. The problematic 'You need to format this disk' (Disk management, File System: RAW) came up, I said okay to formatting the device. Windows built in formatter went a bit crazy, and then told me it was unable to perform the format.

Weird.

I also found this article - Correcting the DREADED Vista Problem - USB Device Not Reconigsed

And I have tried the suggested point the drivers manually task - which hasn't really done anything. Worth a try though.

I will say this, I did install TrueCrpyt when I got it. But the whole thing failed miserably, and I gave up. I have reformatted the drive since then using MiniTool Partition Wizard (Home Ed.) - and this seemed to make the device work. Up until now.

I remember when I set this up, it did something regarding mounting drive I: (which is the drive letter which the USB stick is auto-assigned). I shall try quickly, assigning it something further down the alphabet and see what happens.

FYI: I don't have TrueCrpyt installed anymore. So if it is causing any issues, then I'm guessing its remnants in the registry?

I cant upgrade the Bios either, because when i press F12 when starting the computer, it cannot read from the floppy drive in the docking station. Do i need an USB Floppy Drive for that? I tried with an usb stick but that doesnt work. Isnt there a possibility to do an update over windows? (Comp is running Windows 2000)

Only the TRAD version of BIOS exists for this Port?g?.
This means that you will be not able to update it from running Windows OS but you will need an external floppy disk drive to perform such update.

Regarding your memory issue;
Check this:
http://www.orcalogic.co.uk/asp/prodtype.asp?prodtype=5388&ft=m&st=3

There you can find the compatible memory module. It?s a 144-Pin PC100 SODIMM.

Possibly you have used not fully compatible module or the module is faulty?

I have a home built ASUS A7N8X2 Deluxe MoBo with an AMD Athlon XP 2800+ CPU. I upgraded Win XP Pro to VISTA Ultimate with no problems other than upgrading a few drivers. It went smoothly. At the time I had 1 GB in one of 3 available slots. I attempted to add 2 GB more to occupy all 3 slots. This produced a reboot after POST as VISTA started. I rotated the the modules through all slots and finally realized that when I went beyond 2 GB it produced a reboot. During post it tests 3 GB and the BIOS displays 3 GB. I have 512MB of RAM on the video card. Any suggestions ?? I am running the latest BIOS and if I remove one GB the machine boots and runs great... ???? Ron

Hello together !

For your information:

Did a memory upgrade today at 2 Toshiba Satellite Pro 2100 (1,9 GH, 256 MB DDR-RAM originally), both up to 1 GB, all fine and not problems.

Just wanted to end rumours about "only 512 MB all together" or even less.

If searching for it, remember to think of the specifications:

DDR-266 (PC2100)
DDR-SDRAM, SO-DIMM
200 PIN
CL 2.5

concerning RAM frequency, building form etc.

Greetings

L0nestar

P.S.: Don`t think a discussion is necessary, thread could therefore be closed...

According the notebook specification Satellite Pro has two memory slots and can be upgraded up to 1 GB. It is very useful to have your confirmation about RAM upgrade for this old but still good notebook model.

Have a nice day.

Hello,  I have tried several memory modules in my pavillion.  I am trying to increase from 4gb to 8gb. It seems as though the bottom memory slot is unresponsive. I have tried the original memory card in that slot and machine will not boot up.Any ides?Thanks in advanceGreg

A:memory upgrade

Just make sure you are actually engaging the memory in the slot we are talking about. We get quite a few preople here who do not get the gold pins quite all the way into the socket. But if you know you installed it right and the memory is known good and the slot does not respond as if it has memory in it, then you have a defective motherboard. The laptop will "work" with one memory slot but obviously not ideal.

i have a hp pavilion desktop pc(3yrs. old) w/ windows xp sp 2 home edition recently installed w/celeron processor(2.70ghz)

i am currently looking a upgrading my ram,(mem.card) because i have for sometime notice that my system performance has been degrading.

the first thing i suspected is the task manager slowly spiking to 100% when i first open the mgnr. when i first had my os install it did not do this it has slowly work its way up

second, i notice in win. task mgnr. is the numbers for the peak commit charge and total physical mem. the commit charge peak mem. 344,092 (K) total physical mem. 252,908(K)
i have 29 processes running offline 32 online.

i read somewhere when the commit charge is higher that the physical mem. if im correct i need more ram .

my pc is using 1 256mb 333mhz 184pin dimm pc2700 ddr mem. card i have a second slot for a second card what i would like to do is upgrade from 256 to 512 which is enough for what i do with my pc.

question: would two 256mb cards work the same(give out the same performance) as one 512 mb card if they are the same mb ,mhz , pin, etc. or would one single 512mb card be a better choice the reason i ask (and i have look around ) is the cost of these cards

I have a Dell Dimension 8200 with only 1.8 processing speed. I added a Radeon ALL-IN-ONE 9600 video card to view tv and mess around with multimedia. My system is now a bit sluggish. I currently have 512 RDRAM for memory and thought I would uprade it to 1G. This uprade is about $200. Is this a good idea or should I think about investing in a new CPU? If so, any suggestions for a new system or other upgrades for under $650? Thanks to all!

Take Care!
 

A:Memory upgrade or buy something new ?

I doubt that you will notice any difference with the increased RAM. As far as changing the CPU must likely your motherboard won't support much of an increase. What generally happens with time is a combination of things. Your Windows operating system getting clogged with odds and ends, spyware and similar programs, itmes running in the background using up resources etc.

Often a reformat works best (after doing appropriate backups). However before going to this somewhat drastic step, check to see what is running at startup, run an antiviurus program, run programs like Adaware and Spybot Search and Destroy. Defragmenting your hard disk is often helpful also.

Of course you can't beat a new system for speed!

Memory or Video Card? :bounce:

Thinking of upgrading from 1 GB to 2GB of PC3200 memory or...

Upgrading from a 6600GT to a 6800GS?

Which one should I do, I'm only doing one, this is for gaming purposes.

I run BF2SF and BF2, and have no major issues. Sometimes, I have lag for a moment, but then it goes away, usually the first 10 seconds when I first join a game.

3.4 Ghz Pentium Prescott
1 GB PC3200 memory
nVidia 6600GT PCIe GPU
80 GB SATA150 HD
 

A:What should I upgrade first? GPU or Memory?

You'll probably get a variety of opinions and here's mine.

More memory MIGHT improve your graphics performance, especially if the "lag" is due to unloading unwanted programs from memory.

I went to the computer shop to get some memory for this laptop. The technician opened the lp and said he couldn't find a slot for an ssd card. Now I am having issues with downloading apps. Furthermore, the Google page keeps shutting down or crashing along with a message about memory. Please help.

A:memory upgrade

The memory in your notebook is not upgradeable. The 2GB that is installed is onboard (soldered onto the systemboard). The reaason you are running out of storage space and seeing errors is that there is no hard disk per se. There is only a 32 GB eMMC flash drive, which hold the Windows 10 operating system. That is also why it was such an inexpensive device. I highly recommend that you purchase a micro Media card of at least 64GB and install it in the media card slot to use as your default storage disk. You will need as much as possible of the 32 GB eMMC flash drive to use as a system disk. That is why he couldn't find a slot for memory. See page 1 of the service guide for your notebook. The Maintenence & Service guide PDF file is at  the following link.http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c04784406

Hi, i have 512MB of RAM at the moment (its made by hyundai) my motherboard can support up to 1gb of memory and i have one slot free, i was just wondering if i have to buy memory from the same maker or can i buy the same TYPE of memory (DDR SDRAM same speed ect) but from a different maker like "Kingston"?

do Kingston and hyundai work together in other words or do they have to be the same maker and specs not just the same specs.....?

Thanks.....

They *should* work together, but they don't *always* work together.

Most of my systems have a mis-mash of ram modules and they work ok.

I Have a HP Pavillion 510w which came with 128 Megabytes of memory. I have since upgraded to 256 Megs and an Nvidia 32 meg Video card with no trouble. I tride to up grade to 384 megs by adding 256 megs in place of one of the 128 meg chipboards. When I do, my monitor will click on when I power up, but then immediately clicks off. Does anyone out there have any suggestions?
