Memory help

  Hetti 18:20 04 Jan 2005

I'm not sure if my PC has an KT7-RAID motherboard or a KT7A- RAID, I need to buy more memory how do i find out which board I have or will It make a difference?

The PC is 1400GHZ and has two empty memory slots

Also I looked on the Crucial web site and the suggested memory was SDRAM, but when I look in the manual that I got with the m/board it only mentions DIMM, as a novice this is very confusing can any one shed some light for a absolute PC novice?

Am i correct in thinking that your mobo has 5 slots, 3 in use?

click here The crucial tool shows that both motherboard types use the same memory type have the same maximum.

Both the KT7A and the KT7a raid take sdramm ( dimms)

The maximum ram you can put in each slot is 3 X 512Mb, so that is why it says the board will support 1.5gig = 1500Mb. If you are using windows 98 or 98se, don't go over 512Mb for a combination of all 3. With XP you can use as much as you like.

It would be nice to know the speed of the sdram, it is probably 133Mhz but it may be 100Mhz. Download this click here and run it. Then look at computer > overclock > spd memory moduels.Like this. click here This will tell us the ammount and speed of ram you have.

It says 133MHz is that what you wanted to know? I cannot download the suggested programme as it is my other PC that needs the memory and it needs to be on the one I need to upgrade is that right?

The PC im upgrading is Win ME do I have to stick to 512MB for all three slots? It has 265Mb in the one used slot

Three slots........ one in use 265Mb

"more help with porn removal pls"?????? lol

Yes I would say get another 256Mb of pc133 sdram IF you need more memory. Pick CL2.5 non eec ram. This should work fine.

Above should be..256Mb also the title should be


  Hetti 20:12 04 Jan 2005

Can I just ask you do you mean buy 156Mb of pc133 sdram to go nto the second slot, then if I need more on top of that pick CL2.5 eec ram, or do I get this for the first purchase also (hope thats clear lol)
"More help with porn removal" was a previous prob did not notice it had jumped into the title box..its sorted .lol

"then if I need more on top of that pick CL2.5 eec ram"

No. You just need this and no more.

All you want is 256Mb of pc133 sdram. This should work fine in your machine click here It's CL2, but should be fine.

Just pull back the white tags on the second slot, insert the memory and switch on the computer. It should register straight away.
