Hi ,
I want to upgrade to 8GB RAM (Now I'm using 1 GB RAM)
I want to know if my computer compatible with 8GB or not !
my friend told me that it depends on the processor ... Does it ??

Windows 7 professional
Processor : Intel(R) Celeron(R) CPU 900 @ 2.20GHz 2.19 GHz
Installed memory (RAM): 1.00 GB
System type: 32-bit operating system
I'm sorry if the info is not enough I don't know what is the important info to tell !!

A:Want to upgrade to 8GB RAM is my computer compatible ?

The CPU itself is 64 bit capable,

Intel? Celeron? Processor 900 (1M Cache, 2.20 GHz, 800 MHz FSB)

but seeing it is a socket 478 CPU, it all comes down to what the motherboard will support; one bit of info you left out. Also as long as you are running 32 bit Windows anything beyond 3 GB is essentially a waste as 32 bit Windows can only use up to 4 GB, and you will lose some of that due to memory addressing of all devices in and on the motherboard.

Using Windows 7, I have a Gigabyte P55A-UD4P motherboard, two 2048MB memory sticks with two slots vacant, CPU is 2.80 G Intel Core i7 860, and a ATI Radeon HD 5700 Series Video Card. I also have a Ceton Infini TV 6 Network Device television card on my motherboard receiving the Comcast Signal for streaming the television signal through my computer. Watching TV on the computer is a little slow to bring up, I have some problems with some scheduled recording certain channels as they don't simply record yet some are consistent in recording and it takes sometimes a minute or more to start recording once I select that option. Could I still upgrade the CPU, the memory and possibly the video card to achieve more dependable and reliable performance? The computer stores in my area (Micro Center) do not sell an upgraded CPU that would be compatible with my motherboard. I plan to upgrade to Windows 10 (with all the pop up notices I am getting but I want to wait until I have the hardware issue settled).
Thanks for your help.

My computer was freezing after about 30 seconds after its booted up. Originally my friend thought it was a virus, so i had to format my hard drive. After i did that while re-downloading win7 it froze while i was putting in the product key, my friend said it could be the cpu or memory. He is not 100% sure what it is being that he lives far away and cannot look at my computer. Any ideas? I myself am very very bad with computers, so i don't know the specs and my computer wont work, so i cant look for it. Sorry if i posted incorrectly or in the incorrect spot.

Hello everyone, it's been a while since I've posted in these forums but I've run across another problem.

I'm currently running a computer with an Asus M29-E Motherboard and with 2 Aenon 1 gig DDR2 PC2-5300 333MHz sticks of RAM. I heard from a friend that my RAM is too slow for my computer and so my video card (NVIDIA 7900 GS) can't run at it's full potential. At least that's what I think he was talking about. Anyway I decided to upgrade my RAM with a 2048MB PC6400 800Mhz DDR 2 Ram 2GB PC 6400 stick, but I can't figure out if this is compatible with my motherboard. I've ran a couple searches both on google and on these forums, but it seems that everyone was talking way above my head. :/

So I guess my questions boil down to this:

Is my motherboard compatible with PC 6400 RAM (Whatever that means.) (I know it is compatible with 800MHz RAM)

Is it worth buying the RAM ($31) ?

Am I right in assuming that you can't run two different speeds of RAM at once?

Thank you so much for reading this, and if you respond keep in mind that I have very cursory knowledge of "advanced" computer usage.

Have a great day,

i just bought a 128mb memory stick.
i installed it in my computer and at startup a blue screen quickly apeared and then the system shut down.
i restart the computer and this time it doesnt crash at startup. but a few minute later my system crash again.
my system is crashing randomly.. and i think its my new memory.
the seller picked the memory out and i showed him the motherboard's manual. so it cant be that the memory is not compatible

i've tried switching the memory sticks in diffrent slot but it got my system corrupted.
i switch them back where they belong and it went back to normal.

is there anyway to stop my computer from crashing?

A:Computer crash after memory upgrade

Bad stick of ram? 2100 and 2700 mixed? Both might fit your board, but they may not play well together.
Try the sticks one at a time, try the new one alone first and see what happens. Might not be bad, but if you have 2 different types???

Hi folks,

I am in real problem. I have a asrock presscott800 motherboard. Didn't know much about hardware. I bought 2*1gb ddr pc3200 400mhz rams. But didn't realize that i had pc3200u. And later on i saw seller described it as high density memory meaningly will work with certain motherboard.

Now when i put them in my pc the pc won't boot up at first. So i remove them tested one by one, but same result. when i put my old one the pc boots up but stays for about 2 mins and then immediately after that when i press power button it would stay for only 5s and then it won't boot up anymore. Now if i leave it for 30 mins, it would do the same thing. 2mins>5s>no power. do u think guys i have to change my motherboard? is that fried?
Please really need urgent help.

Looking to upgrade memory. I have a 5 year old Dell Dimension 3000 running Windows XP home SP3. Pentium 4 processor (2.8GHz)with 512MB Ram currently. I can upgrade to a max of 2G for this computer.

I run few if any large apps with the exception of Firefox and McAfee Total protection. Those two apps are fairly resource hungry and can really slow things down at times. My question is how much memory should I upgrade too and see a significant difference? another 512M or go to the 2G max?

Oh.. and case anyone wants to know, I do limit the apps that are running to what I actually need, and I have also done the same with Startup. I use CCleaner to clean out junk I don't need and I use a good defragger (Auslogics) on occasion if need be.

Any thoughts?

Hi, I'm not sure where else to go but if you have a forum that you think would be able to answer this better, please redirect me.

My computer is about 2-3 years old. I tend to take good care of it but I'm having a locking up issue.

Problem: I use my computer mostly for Solidworks and some pretty heavy games. It typically does not freeze while in use. However, some times when it is not in use, it freezes and automatically resets itself.
Other times, I'll be doing some light work and it will freeze like it was 1995, mouse wont move, audio stuck on repeat, and the only option I have, is to do a hard restart.

Confusing parts: When the computer boots back up, I cannot hit enter or anything to get the computer to select "Start windows in normal mode" as opposed to safe mode. The only keyboard I can get to work with that is my Logitech rubber dome keyboard. My mech keyboards don't register. Even my wired Logitech keyboard G510s doesn't register. ONLY my cheapy one (I'll see if I can find you a model number if you need it) . Even more confusing is that my wired mouse won't respond either. The only peripherals that do respond use wireless (not all from one brand, the only commonality is that they're all wireless and work in the bios screens)

Going further down the rabbit hole: When I removed 2 of the 4 memory sticks upon my last boot up. My mech keyboard was recognized in the bios and I was able to select "start windows in normal mode." I don't know if this w... Read more

Other than the Lenovo solution, would others please post memory that is compatible with P70/P50 ECC.I see crucial produces the following:  CT16G4TFD824Ahttp://www.crucial.com/usa/en/ct16g4tfd824a16GB DDR4-2400 Unbuffered ECC 1.2VHas anyone tried this module?

A:P70 ECC Compatible memory

I haven't "tried" this ECC memory because I'm still waiting for the E3-1535M  CPU to become orderable in the North American market.  However, I have also been looking at specification compatible ECC modules.  The Crucial one you referenced isn't, spec-wise, exactly the same as the Lenovo provided one. Here is the comparison between the Samsung M474A2K43BB1-CPB one that Lenovo provides and the Crucial one you referenced:Samsung: 16GB SODIMM ECC SDRAM DDR4-2133 Mhz Unbuffered PC4-17000 Mb/s 1.2 Volt 260 Pin with Latency CL=15Crucial: 16 GB SODIMM ECC SDRAM DDR4-2400 Mhz Unbuffered PC4-19200 Mb/s 1.2 Volt 260 Pin with Latency CL=17 So, the spec differences between the two are the Speed (2133 Mhz vs 2400 Mhz), the bandwidth (17000 Mb/second vs 19200 Mb/second) and the latency (15 nano seconds vs. 17 nano seconds). Although there may be other Samsung "spec identical" ECC memory, the only other 16 GB one I have found so far (from this forum) is the Transcend TS2GSH72V1B. Like you, I'd be very interested to hear from others on this subject.

Hi everyone,
One stick of my system memory died lately and I am planning to buy some new ones. I own an ECS nforce3-A939 mobo and i know the best memory I can put in is 2gb of DDR 3200 dual channel.
The thing is, I want to buy a kit of OCZ Platinum 3200 dual channel (2x1gb). Unfortunately, OCZ's memory configurator only sugesting me Value Series 3200.

Is the platinum series compatible with my mobo or I'll be wasting my money?

Thank You

A:Compatible memory?

Go to www.crucial.com and use their configuration finder. You won't find better memory than Crucial. Then once you discover what works, you can buy any brand.
Value Ram is OK, provided you don't need the high speed for gaming or image editing software. It is "value" because the chips on the module may be from a number of sources, not tested, and not likely to work at the higher speeds.
There is a much marketing as technology in most memory modules. Reliability wins out over marketing for our computers... thus, Crucial, Kingston, Infineon, and Corsair are our likely choices.

A:Is this memory compatible with my laptop?

The answer is "maybe".  Your  machine uses low-voltage PC3L memory (1.35V).  The other stick is PC3, which is 1.5V memory.  Some 1.5V memory will work at 1.35V and some will not.  You would need to try the individual stick.  (All 1.35V PC3L memory will work at either 1.35V or 1.5V).

A:Is this memory compatible with my motherboard?

If you go to the manufacturers site and look up the motherboard there should be a list available to view or download for compatible RAM, you can check it there.

Unfortunately the compatability lists only include RAM they have tested so even if it is not in the list it may still be ok. Thing to do is try it.

I had a computer built for me roughly a year ago and with it came 2GB DDR2 of Corsair XMS2 6400 800 mhz 5-5-5-18 memory. I recently wanted to upgrade my memory from 2GB to 4GB so I went to nearest Microcenter and wrote down my exact memory specs. I purchased 2GB DDR2 of Corsair XMS2 6400 800 mhz 5-5-5-18 memory and plugged it into my free momory spaces. I was a little paranoid at first because the two sets were in what looks like different housing. The first set of memory is in a silver metal housing that looks flashy and the second set is just a standard memory stick. After placing the new memory in and trying to boot - nothing happens. I tried several different configurations on the system board and nothing seems to work - same result each time - no boot from the computer if the new memory is installed. If I removed the new sticks the computer boots fine. I'm using an XFX Nforce 680i LT SLI which supports up to 4gb of memory. I'm wondering if there is a common cause for this or if maybe because the memory was purchased a year apart (and have different cases) there is a known compatibility issue. I'd rather not having to buy 4gb of new memory to go from 2gb to 4gb unless absolutely necessary. Thanks for the help.

I'm currently looking to upgrade my memory from 4gb to 16gb. Is there a list of compatible memory available to view and would the following memory be ok for this machine ... The website states that it is compatible with the Optiplex 7010 but my guess is that they will tell you want to hear.
Kingston KCP316ND8/8 DDR3 SDRAM - DIMM 240-pin

Any help on thie matter would be muchly appriciated

A:Optiplex 7010 SFF compatible memory

You can always check out Crucial's UK site (http://uk.crucial.com/gbr/en/ for compatible RAM for your system.
And if Crucial recommends it for a specific PC model, they guarantee it works in that system or they take it back...

I just came from a retail store to check on prices but most of their parts weren't available anymore. Instead of a G. Skill Ripjaws 2x4 8gb DDR-3 1600, the clerk offered me a Crucial Ballistix 2x4 8gb DDR-3 1866 memory. The board I'm gonna buy is an Asrock H77 Pro4/Mvp but looking at their memory support list http://www.asrock.com/mb/memory.asp?Model=H77 Pro4/MVP, it doesn't seem compatible.

The clerk had told me it was compatible and that he had tried it before but I'm not sure if it'd have unwanted effects over some period of time. (I got drawn in by how the memory looks and its LED so I'm including it as a choice). Thanks.

A:Is a 1866 memory compatible with an H77 board?

It will be compatible, worst case scenario is just setting your 1866Mhz RAM to run at 1600Mhz. You're getting quicker RAM for free.

I'm new to memory upgrade, could anyone help me to check if the new ram is compatible with the old one because I'm putting 2 more gigs next to the old ram to make it 3 gigs.



Mobo I'm currently using

side note: The reason why i got an extra G.skill ram is because the new Corsair i brought in to Bestbuy the other day for installation was bad? , the tech told me my PC won't start up when he put the the similar stick of Corsair ram to the existence one, so i went out and purchase the G.skill instead from newegg and hopefully its compatible with the old one.

So my other question is, was the secondary Corsair a DOA or can the Bestbuy tech fix it by adjusting my PC bio or other setting?


A:Memory check if its compatible for my mobo

it usually works, but it is NEVER good to mix memory modules... all working well individually. You will always note a hit in performance, and some will make the computer noticeably slower.
Better to sell the old, and install all identical modules...

I am going to upgrade the Memory RAM, but I have 2 Modules that are PC3L (1.3V), would that be compatible with the laptop (X201)? The originals are PC3 (1.5V). Thank you in advance.

No, the first generation Intel processor doesn't support DDR3L RAM. 
I hope the above information helped you.

Hi Guys,

Acer T180 with 2 X 512Gb PC2-4300 CL4 sticks. CPUZ reports as running at 100.5Mhz?

I want to add more memory.

Can I add 2 matched sticks of PC2-5400 CL4 1GB each
or 2 sticks of DDR2-5300 CL5 1GB each.
Both of the above at 675Mhz.

I have 4 slots each max of 1Gb; 2 used as above, 2 free.

What are the rules and implications for matching memory?
Is it correct that whatever I put in will run at the slowest speed i.e. the original PC2-4300 above?
Does it matter which slot pairs are used for which sticks e.g should the 1GB sticks go in the first two slots rather than the last.

I also see specifications like 5-5-5-15 , does that matter.

Wow, sorry for all the questions!

I want to upgrade my CPU. It is currently an AMD Athlon Neo Processor MV-40. It is only 1.6 Ghz. My laptop is an HP Pavilion dv2 Entertainment PC. My motherboard specs are below.

Model: Flextronics 3055
FSB: AMD Hammer, 200 Mhz

The question I have is: What other CPUs are compatible with my motherboard.

I have already tried to look up my motherboard via Flextronics website, but it does not seem to be listed there. Thank you all in advance for any help.

A:Motherboard compatible with CPU. Upgrade.

Faites, welcome to the forums.

I have already tried to look up my motherboard via Flextronics website, but it does not seem to be listed there.

Probably because it is an OEM board made by them for that (and maybe more) particular notebook. They wouldn't provide any support for it even if you did find it on their site as that would all fall on the notebook manufacturer.

As far as upgrading the CPU, unless it is supported in the bios the best you can do is the Turion Neo x2 listed here,

AMD Processors for Notebooks: AMD Turion

other than that, nothing. Even if it is supported (and that is entirely up to HP), ther eis the small matter of finding one.

A:Compatible GPU upgrade (gaming)

@Brent171, welcome to the forum. The problem that you will have with upgrading the video card is two fold: 1) newer video cards require UEFI in the motherboard instead of a standard BIOS and yours has a standard BIOS and 2) your power supply unit (PSU) is only 250W.  Most newer cards require a minimum of 300W to operate properly.  The last cards not to require UEFI were the GTX 660/670 series. Your best option is to choose a manufacturer and contact their Tech Support for help with choosing the best card for your system.  They will save you time and money.  The seller pays to ship the card to you, but you pay to return it if it doesn't work. Please click the Thumbs up + button if I have helped you and click Accept as Solution if your problem is solved.

Hi Good day, I bought an HP Notebook 15-ba047cl and I need to upgrade the RAM, but there's a few issues.  So the laptop comes with two slots, one is being used with an 8GB SODIMM. I want to expand the RAM to 16GB and also enable dual-channel mode, but the stick of RAM in my laptop seems to not only be quite rare, but very expensive. The RAM currently installed in my laptop is:  Manufacturer HynixManufacturer Reference HMA81GS6AFR8N-UHCapacity 8GBName PC4-19200Short Form 8GB(1Rx8)Type 260PinConstruction Type SO-DIMMModel SO-DIMMOrganization 1Gx64Description DDR4 2400MHzNumber of Ranks 1Extension unbufferedError Correction non-ECCDRAM Organization 1Gx8Number of DRAM 8Construction Type of DRAM FBGA(78ball)Type Height 31.25mmVoltage 1,2V  I've read HP's documents extensively and they insist I use RAM from the same manufacturer and model number in order to enable dual-channel mode (though I know full well this isn't always needed), but this particlar brand and model is severely problematic to get a hold of. As for my question, I was wondering whether or not I should purchase an entirely new set of 2 8GB sticks, and which ones you would recommend for this laptop, or if there was some way for you guys to assist me in getting just one other stick of RAM from another manufacturer that would work and enable dual-channel mode. I can't seem to find much people, if any at all, mentioning this laptop, and when I try to use the offline hardware scanners an... Read more

I am looking at a laptop for a fellow student. He upgraded from 8.1 to 10 shortly after 10 became available. Recently it was running slow and shuts off sometimes. Fan vent was clogged. CPU temp a little too high. First of all there are no drivers for Windows 10 from Toshiba. This laptop is not on their compatibility list.

I was running ccleaner and noticed its taking a long time. I looked at the CPU and Ram usage and CPU is at 7% and RAM at 49%. Then I noticed the speed of the CPU is at 1.2GHz with a Max speed of 2.6GHz. Every now and then it will jump to 2.3GHz for a second or two, then back down to 1.2 or 1.3GHz. Could this have anything to do with the 10 upgrade? Will not having the drivers for 10 create a performance issue? I think the laptop needs to go back to 8.1 but I need input from above my level (very low).

Toshiba Satellite P855-S5102
Intel Core i5-3230M CPU @2.6GHz
4G RAM Single Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz (11-11-11-28)

Ccleaner is still running through Edge. Been doing it for 20 minutes and still at 0% progress which is why I posted.
