Solved: Is there a certin memory TYPE requirement for Windows 7?

Q: Solved: Is there a certin memory TYPE requirement for Windows 7?

Hey all! I was looking to buy a "netbook" from HP around the first of the year, but I had one concern when it came to memory / OS compatibility. There are two options for OS:
Windows XP Home with Service Pack 3
Windows 7 Home Premium 32-bit.

There are also 3 different memory options:
1GB DDR3 System Memory
2GB DDR3 System Memory (1 Dimm)
3GB DDR3 System Memory (1 Dimm)

Now, if I were to select XP as my OS, the only option it lets me select is 1gb. If I were to select Windows 7, I'm able to select any of the 3 options. When having XP with 2 or 3 GB selected, it says:
Windows XP Home with Service Pack 3 requires 1GB DDR3 System Memory (1 Dimm). Update Memory or Operating system .

Not sure what's going on here. I think 1 Dimm just means it takes up 1 slot. But, why would I not be able to have XP and 2/3 GB? To my knowledge, HP isn't correct?

Just wondering, because I want to select XP with 3GB. I have Windows 7 professional through my work, so I don't want to drop $30 on an OS I won't use. I kinda want to upgrade the memory through HP because 1) they install it so it's on them, and 2) it's only $65 for 3gb. Pretty good price, I think

Does anybody know anything about this? To my knowledge I shouldn't have a problem having ANY of these memories with EITHER operating system, but according to their website, it has to be one or the other.

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.)

When a Graphics card requires, say 900 MB, is that only a requirement just to start it up, or does that mean that it will consume 900 MB as it's being used. Basically, if you had only one GB, and this is the case, than would you have only 100 MB available?

A:Video Card Memory Requirement

Usually.what you see as far as graphics memory is concerned,
is how much memory it has built in and not how much system
memory it uses.
Dedicated graphics cards use their own onboard memory.
For instance...
This card has 512MB of built in video memory that it uses
for graphics.
It probably uses 50-100MB of hard drive space to install
drivers and software,but no where near 900MB of system
memory to run it.

A friend asked me to upgrade her mem but I found a strange beast inside that I am not familiar with. Chasis shows it to be a Dimension 4500 but ser code and Everest show it to be a 8200. Crucial shows it have Rambus Inline mem. 4 mem sticks with bank 0 and 1 covered with aluminum and bank 2 and 3 "plain" Dell sticks with no circuits on surface ?? I removed 2 plain sticks and PC beeped like crazy. I assume I can replace these sticks with normal looking mem but curious as to what I have?? Each stick has 2 notches in middle of stick about 1 in apart.

Hello guys,
This may sound a really dumb question but forgive me for asking it.
I have a Intel P4 2.4Mhz processor with Intel Mobo 845GEBV2 with 128MB of memory.
But I dont know the type of memory.
I used Aida and looked in the memory it said 128MBDDR SDRAM(PC2100)(133 MHz).
But under a different header it said effective speed 266Mhz.
which is the correct one?
Is it possible to use to memory sticks with different speeds on a single mobo.
Also cooould anyone tell me the maximum size of HDD that i can connect to this mobo and does the limit apply to both primary and secondary hd,s
thanks in advance for the help.

I just bought 4GB of Corsair DDR3 memory 2x2GB CM3X2048-1333C9DHX, XMS3-1333 1.7V. This memory was to add to my 2GB of DDR3 Dual Inline Memory Modules(DIMMS).
When I read the instructions with the new items it stated that they were only suitable for 64Bit systems. I contacted the seller about this and he advised that it did not matter what Bit size my system was and that they would work. I therefore decided to test this out by installing one of the 2GB modules and was pleased to see that the system recognised the increased RAM, I then installed the second one and this time the OS refused to start. I have tried both installed on there own and it works but not with the two together. These were expensive items which the seller is not keen to take back, can someone explain what is wrong here and possibly tell me what I should have ordered.
Thanking you in advance.

I want to upgrade RAM in a DELL which has only 2 memory slots and I want to end up with 2Gig. The current RAM is PC3200U-30330 - 256MB DDR-400MHZ-CL3

Q#1 ---Someone told me this would work: 2X 1 GB DDR SDRAM 266 MHz ( PC2100 )

BUT I believe the correct Ram is : 2 x 1GB PC3200 400MHZ DDR RAM MEMORY

Q#2 - Will either one work? Isn't the Pc2100 266MHZ slower?

Thank you for any information you can give me.

I would use PC 3200 if that is what was in there previously, although the PC 2100 may work. Can you get a look at the motherboard specs on the Dell website? That should tell you what RAM to use.

I have a difficult one that is hard to explain but here goes.

When a new record is being created in "frmProjects" I want that upon closing the form it will require the person via pop up warning? to add a comment which is a button on the same form that opens "frmRemarks" other wise the record will not save.

Or it could upon attempting to close the frmProjects it could pop up the frmRemarks with a message box saying "Comment is required when creating new record" ???

I should also note that frmProjects pulls fromtblProjects and that comments come from tblRemarks which is a subdata table of tblProjects
Any ideas? Please note that I am a novice at VBA and pretty much need things spelled out in detail, but I don't give up!

Thanks, Joe

Joe, why use a pop-up form, won't a subform perform the same function?

Hi, I have a Nextpad device that comes with Windows 10 installed on it. I did not yet install any user application on it, and the File Explorer reports that it has about 16G out of a total 28G disk space available. Now Windows Update has found the Windows 10 Fall Update and will try to download and install it, but I stopped it because I worry about the disk space.

So my question is: is the 16G free space enough? I know that the Fall Update install will try to back up the original Windows 10 first, and that will take a lot of disk space (my guess here is that the 12G space used is all used by the system and will be backed up, and that only leaves me 4G left, which might not even be enough for downloading the Fall Update). Even though I would be able to remove the previous Windows after a successful installation of Fall Update, I worry the update will fail (and leave the device in an unusable state) during the installation due to insufficient disk space.

So what should I do? I know I can insert a MicroSD card to increase the storage capacity, but numerous articles have indicated that the presence of such card will cause the Fall Update to stall and fail.

Thanks very much for your help!

A:What is the Disk Space Requirement for Windows 10 Fall Update?

Rather then allowing windows update to download the upgrade to your HDD ( uses about 5GB of space)
Download the windows 10 ISO > http://www.microsoft.com/en-us/softw...load/techbench
Right-click the ISO and burn to a removable USB drive..
Delete the ISO file or copy it to another location other then your small HDD
Now you can run the upgrade from the usb drive by running setup.exe

besides having the setup files on your small HDD, you would also need room for the windows.old folder..
So having the files on usb helps with needed space..

I have an E- Machine which is a very cheap computer and runs on vista, the computer runs great; however, the internet had certin times where it runs slower than others. The internet always works perfect;y and fast in the mornings and gets slow around noon. Ive ran virus scans, defragmented my computer, deleted unwanted programs. This problem showed up about 2 months ago and i cant find the source of why its doing this. Any suggestions?

A:Internet slows at certin times

This sounds like a classic case of an overloaded ISP network, it's a very common complaint.

I'm guessing this has nothing to do with your computer.

Please run the following test when it's working properly, then again when it's slow.
Register at DSLReports and run their Line Quality Tests. It's best to run this test with a direct wired connection to eliminate any wireless issues from the results. It's useful many times to run this test several times, and we'd like to see each of the results. Post the results link from the top of the test display page for each test run here.

The link to post is near the top of the page and looks like:

If you wish to post this result to a forum, please copy/paste this URL
http://www.dslreports.com/linequality/nil/2357195 <- sample only, yours will obviously be different!
and your IP will be disguised.

Copy/paste that link here.

Note: You will have to enable PING (ICMP) request response either in your router (if you have one), or in your computer's firewall for direct modem connections. This is very important to get the most important part of the test to run.

Here's also the Line Quality Tests FAQ to help you understand the results. This will answer some questions about the line quality display.

A:Monitor loses signal as certin times

you say it "loses signal"... by that do you mean the computer remains on and you can still use it but cant see anything?

the first and most obvious thing to check would be the monitor cable, make sure that it's clean and not lose. wiggle the cable around to see if it "loses signal" again.

do you have another monitor that you could try?

also, make sure that you aren't setting the games video settings higher than your video card and monitor can handle.

It sounds to me like your power supply may be going bad. emachines are known for their low-quality motherboards and power supplies. it could be either one, but my guess is the power supply.

A:Unable to access certin sites Therough Network

Can't access some websites while using a shared PPPoE connection

If you're using Windows' built-in support for Internet Connection Sharing, and your Internet connection is facilitated by PPPoE software (such as Enternet 300) or Windows XP's built-in PPPoE, you may experience this problem. Although any web site will be accessible on the "Host" computer, certain web sites will never load successfully from any of the "client" machines. (If you don't know what "Hosts" or "Clients" are with regard to ICS, read Internet Connection Sharing.) The problem is caused by an incompatible MTU networking setting: Windows' default is 1500, but PPPoE uses 1492 or 1454. Here's how to fix it:

Find the IP address of your gateway. If you're using Windows 2000 or XP, run IPCONFIG at a command prompt on the Host computer. If you're using Windows 98 or Me, run WINIPCFG on the Host computer. Either way, you'll get an address that looks like xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx (where the x's represent numbers).
Then, go to one of your Client machines, and type the following:
PING -f -l 1500 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
(where xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx is the gateway address you obtained in the first step). You'll probably get an error message indicating that it must be fragmented. If you do, type the following:
PING -f -l 1492 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx
If that doesn't work, try this:
PING -f -l 1454 xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx

A:[Help]what type of memory

Read other 16 answers

So being completely new to building computers, I may sound stupid. I am getting an Intel Core i5-6500 processor which supports DDR3/DDR4. I am getting 8 GB of RAM at DDR4 2133. However, I want to get the MSI Radeon RX 470 Gaming 4GB but it says that it has DDR5 memory. Does the GPU memory unit impact the memory equation at all, or can I just go ahead with getting it and it will all work out?

Hi there.

A friend has an off-network PC which is low on RAM.
I have run AIDA32 to get various info from the pc as this needs addressing (a new pc is out of the affordability question!).

I think this is the memory that I need but I'm not too sure.
link to memory

If I paste some of the findings, please could you let me know if you think i have selected the right memory?
Thanks guys!

(from aida32):

Memory Slots:
DRAM Slot #1 64 MB (SDRAM)
CPU Type AMD K6-2, 450 MHz (4.5 x 100)
Motherboard Name Acer V75M
Motherboard Chipset SiS 530
System Memory 55 MB (SDRAM) (!!!!! !!!!!!)

I am running with 3GB RAM now. Here are my specs:
Motherboard Asus M2N68-LA
*Dual memory archetecture
*4 240 pin DDR2 DIMM sockets
* Supported DIMM types ---PC2-5300 (667 MHz)----PC2-6400 ( 800 MHz )
* Non ECC memory only ( unbuffered )
*Supports 2 GB DDR2 DIMMS
*Supports up to 4 GB

I was told to actually use Dual memory I need matching sticks, And since Im running 3GBsnow they probably dont match, One probably has 2MBs, the other side 1MB. If I replaced the 1MB side with a 2 then added 2 more 2MBs would that work? Also whats the diffrence between the 667 MHz and the 800 MHzs? Which is better? Thankyou for your help

A:What Type Of Memory Should I Get?

hi,,, like me you have 3gb of ram,,, and they can be matched pair's,,,, i see your mobo will take 800Mhz ram,,, i have,,, 2x1gb=2gb PC2-64OO (800Mhz) and 2x512=1gb PC2-6400 (800Mhz),,, you see, all the same stuff and matched pair's giving me 3gb, you also have 4 dimm slots like me so its probley configured the same way,,, 2+2,,,, if you upgrade to 4gb of ram then vista 32bit will only see and use about 3.2gb of that ram,,, so i would not bother with 4gb and just get some matched pair's of the faster PC2- 6400,,,,you also need to get the right latency or CL,,, and the same voltage,,, a good way to get this is either take a stick of ram out and look on the side or log on to a site called crucial.com and run there system scanner, this will then recomend RAM thats compatable with your mobo,,, just look what CL, and voltage it says on the recomended RAM,, and there you go,,, then go to newegg and look for some ram i have recomended (PC2-6400) with the right CL and voltage that you got of crucial or of the side of your own ram,,,, or you could just buy it of crucial.com.good luck.http://www.crucial.com/and for the ram try this linkhttp://www.newegg.com/i have looked for some for you belowhttp://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList....e=2GB+(2+x+1GB)http://www.newegg.com/Product/ProductList....1GB+(2+x+512MB)

I just bought a Dell Dimension 2400 and it came installed with 256MB's of DDR SDRAM PC2700 333 MHz,
I will be running photoshop and want to add more memory.
PC2100 266 MHz is cheaper so should I add 512MB's of this
Or stick with PC700 which runs at 333 MHz, but is more expensive.
Also if I install the 512 MB's of PC2100 will it be compatible with the 256 of PC2700 that is already installed.
Also what is the difference in the MHz etc,

A:Which memory type???

yes you can run the 2100, and the 2700 together, it just won't be as fast.

the difference in Mhz, is the speed

The ram type is: 4GB 2Rx8 PC3-10600S-9-10-F2

Now I have another 8gb of memory of my Sony which I want to use but it's a little bit different...
The 2x 4gb module's I want to add are: CL9S PC3-10666-F3

Can I just add them to the laptop or will there be a problem ?

Thanks in advance,

Win 7 is finicky about RAM. Sometime even the same ram from the same mfr bought at different times doesnt work. I am betting you can make it work but it may cause instability.

Hello! I want to add more memory to my computer. I know how to do it, but I'm having problems figuring out what type I need. My computer came with one 256MB of PC133 and two 128MB of PC100. How is it possible that my computer takes both PC 100 and PC133? I notice that some packages on
K-byte's brand have RAM listed as both PC100/133, but some have just PC133 or PC100 listed on the package. I went to the store and bought a kingston 256MB PC133 and my computer didn't take it. I want to buy some on ebay because they are pretty cheap there, but the problem is I don't know what to buy. Is there a site that can tell me all the brands and what type of RAM my computer can take? And what is the difference between ECC and non-ECC memory? I'm not sure what kind I have. Any help would be great.
