I Need Some Help Trying To Figure Out Which Pc133 Memory Will Work And Wont Work

This is a good warning but, doesn't describe the REAL problem. the older couple said it was dead, but I liked the case and was planning on moving my internet computer into that case. The Kingston's I can't tell if they have any chips on the back or not without opening them up. Also, for old motherboards, the density within abank might be required to be the same for both sticks; i.e., if a bankis composed of 2 slots then the motherboard might require http://custsolutions.net/i-need/i-need-something-to-work-on.php

I have seen>numerous posts about "high density" DIMMs not working properly, but the>posters never say exactly what high density is. My motherboard is listed as a Asus P4B-LA (Amazon) and from looking at the lists on the two sites it looks like the two closest motherboards to mine are the Asus/AsMobile these days *almost* all memorycan run at 133MHz anyway, the primary reason new memory modules are beinglabeled as "PC100" is due to this density compatibility issue with olderboards/chipsets like the 693. All the Crucial PC133 I've bought has worked at 100MHz in motherboards that only take lower-density memory (boards as far back as the i440LX chipset).

The parts meet all the testing specifications but, they won't work in the final system.*------------------------------------------------------------------------------- ADDENDUM #2: (25 August 2006) SYSTEM UPGRADE I replaced the single 8k refresh, 256Mb DIMM on That modulemight not work in your computer if the controller won't adapt to 2-bytewide access from each chip.Also, although I have not used low-profile PC-100/133 modules, they doexist. The K-Byte and Centon 256 each have 8 total.

  1. If you see anything referring to lower numbers like x8 or x4, then you can figure out what the density is as well as how many chips it uses.
  2. Older memory chips (low density chips) were designed with fewer cells and therefore used a lower number of addresses to select all the rows.
  3. The forementioned was for unbufferednon-ECC memory.

  6. Share July 30, 2007 Many people will tell you to make sure your computer will recognize PC133 memory before you buy it.
  7. In addition, the higher-capacity modules (particularly 512MB) are in the highest demand, and so are even more expensive.

As the FAQ mentions though, the 810 chipset supports 256Mbit high density modules, so even if the Kingston module is, it would still work in an 810 board. I had been planning on trying to build a gaming computer from scratch, and was trying to upgrade this computer a bit to get my feet wet first, and it is These cells are in reality "leaky" capacitors that hold a charge depending on weather the bit is a "zero" or a "one". The most likely reason isprobably due to SPD (serial presence detect) which reports to themotherboard the stick's specs.

There is no way around this problem. have a peek at these guys Of course PC100 costs more, but that's agiven since it takes twice as many chips. The rest of the RAM is "dead" to the computer because the charge on 1/2 of the memory cells leaks away (without adequate refresh) and therefore it is not recognized by My only optionis to upgrade to a newer, faster computer with a larger memory system in the near future. *------------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ADDENDUM #3: (20 September 2006) FYI: Changing the Motherboard Refresh I

The motherboard can't be runningeach slot at a different bus speed and with different delays.It is likely that your non-server motherboard uses unbuffered memory(http://snipurl.com/5zou and http://snipurl.com/5zoy). check over here Most of the PC100 SDRAM DIMMs use 2k or 4k refresh cycles on a different timing schedule.

And the prices are not too bad. and buy only from a reputable company. Each batch of chips that are manufactured have slightly different characteristics that sometimes might not quite meet your motherboard's signal requirements and therefore don't work.

Some older ones required thatyou use the same density within a bank (i.e., within a pair of slots).You have to check what the maximum module size that the motherboard canhandle in

For example a PC133 module may only have settings for 133MHz programmed into it. Unfortunately, most of the time you can't tell ahead of time how many chips there are. The wasted memory space of the first DIMM is reserved because it has told the system that it has more memory than the system "sees".

solved Could I mix these 2gb and 4gb ram sticks together? No, create an account now. what are the important specs, what should I look for in the specs so that I get the right memory so it will boot? According to the specifications I have read about it online, it has three dimm slots and is able to use SDRAM with a speed of pc 133.

MondomanJul 15, 2007, 11:34 AM Unfortunately for you, PC133 SDRAM modules have been obsolete for many years, and are thus fairly expensive for the amount of RAM you get. If your system uses PC100, there is a good chance it contains an Intel chipset. #6 bozo1, Feb 23, 2003 Lord Evermore Diamond Member Joined: Oct 10, 1999 Messages: 9,558 The Crucial 256 has 16 total. #11 Slickone, Feb 28, 2003 (You must log in or sign up to post here.)

If it is convenient, check the package at any local store that sells RAM or ask the vendor to check the package. It's just a cost issue for the makers, because it costs more to put a SPD on that is programmed for speeds all the way back to 66MHz when most people Because this DIMM requires 8k memory refresh cycles (it says so on the package it came in) and my motherboard only provides 4k memory refresh cycles, I can only "see" 128Mb They usually look like http://snipurl.com/5znr with the 8 chipson the frontside (9 for ECC) and the controller chips on the backside.The "density" (http://snipurl.com/5zo3) remains the same for, say, a256MB memory stick

I am so glad I asked !Thank you both so much for the help !
