Very quick question regarding RAM config and whether what I want to do will actually work.
I currently have an Evesham 2800+ system running 512 RAM from two 256 RAM chips.
I'd like to instal a third chip at 512, bringing the total RAM up to 1024. I'd like to check if that configuration (2 x 256 and 1 x 512) will actually work in the system, or whether I need to instal chips of the same size, i.e. 2 x 512.
I do edit fairly large chunks of home movies, and I do get regular 'hangs' whilst the editing program is running (I use Pinnacle v9) so additional RAM is important I think - just need to make sure I'm going about it in the right way.
If the motherboard you have is this click here which is for the K7N2 Delta-ILSR motherboard. To be safe run this from Crucial it will tell you what motherbaord you have and what memory it will take click here if you do that you will be certain of what motherboard you have as there is more than one Delta listed.
Thanks all - I've run the checker from Crucial and it says it can't determine exactly what model PC I have. Had a look via the Motherboard section though (it is the K7N2 model), and I think I'll be going for the 512 mb pc2700.
So, I'm assuming I move the 256 mb memory out of the first slot and put it in slot 3, then place the new 512 mb memory in the first slot?
I use Studio 9.4 With 256mb ram on a Celeron 2.6 and do not get any hangs I supose it would work faster with more in but I do not have any problems like that, and think you should be looking else where if you are having hangs
