Couple of qs about upgrading RAM.

  ShorN 02:39 15 Nov 2004

I currently have 512mb ram in my system, (2x256) and went through crucials online checker where you put in your system details (model nos) and it tells you what you can upgrade to.
It tells me I can go to 2048mb max ram, (obviously 2 sticks of 1).
Is crucial known to be accurate because i searched my model (Compaq presarion 6195EA) elsewhere (cant remember where) and it says it can go to 1024mb ?

Also it recommended on crucial non ECC / non parity RAM.
Is this really important, or if I took out all the ram i have in there (the non ECC ones) now and replaced with ECC ones would it matter?

Any help appreciated!, thanks

Crucial is not infallible - but if your machine will not handle the 2048 MB RAM, they will give you a refund.

To be more certain, try Everest click here
for the details of your mobo and enter that rather than PC details at Crucial.

hi thanks for the response, i couldnt find anywhere to enter the m'board no on crucial.

Anyone know about the ECC thing?

Enter the mobo details under manufacturer just like the PC maker.

We live and learn, always thought ECC was something to do with the European Community, honestly...

you probably dont need more than 1gb ram unless you are doing very intense programs on your computer you may not even notice if you the difference if you did double your ram
