what is ddr333/400 ddr sdram?

Re: Install Ram 80 80

Firstly you need to check the specification of your computer motherboard. Actually you can install 2+1 gb ram but sometimes error occurred due different memory size. But you should install same frequency of ram properly on both slot.

Re: Install Ram 80 80

i would put the 1 GB RAM modules in the firt slot (slot 0) then put the other 2GB module in the other slot just to be safe. other than that, i've never had a probplem with different sized RAM.

Re: Install Ram 80 80

i have never really had a problem with different RAM sizes, but every motherboard is different thus they will support different amounts of RAM...

Re: Install Ram 80 80

the specs in my motherboard says that one slot supports upto 1GB only . so it's not safe to install 2GB in one slot right ?

Re: Install Ram 80 80

That is something that i have come across in my computer, my mobo manual says i can have only 8 GB of ram-- I don't have the money or the time to buy more ram and find out for you but I don't really see the problem, install it and see if it boots, if it does see if the mobo can use all 2GB. if the mobo says only 1 GB per slot, it might just use 1 GB out of the 2 GB module you have. Try it and let us know!
