All I really want to ask is, is it physically possible, humanely possible at all, for a 2GB DDR2 RAM Chipboard to NOT fit in older models of motherboards?
I have a PTGD-LA here, and somehow.... someway, i feel something bad coming outta this especially when I compared the sizes. Just wanted an opinion before I opened this thing up.
Well, of course it may not fit if you have So-DIMMs (used mostly in laptops) instead of normal DIMMs for example.
Yes, its perfectly possible. It all depends on what type your motherboard needs. A DDR2 stick will only physically fit into a DDR2 slot. If you have a older board it may take regular DDR ram such as DDR-333 or DDR-400.
If you need to find out what you need, just download CPU-Z, run it and click on the "Memory" tab and look what it says for "Type" and "DRAM Frequency".
I googled for that motherboard, it does take DDR2, according to HP's specifications (looks like it's a motherboard Asus would have made for HP/Compaq :hmm: )
so lets say, if i were to post the name of the RAM chip I got, you would google and check for me? [input puppy eyes]
Just in Case: Kingston Tech 2GB PC2 - 5300 CL5 240 - PIN DIMM
I Noticed the bold part was similar to the 1GB RAM i installed in my computer, does that mean anything? like this other 2 GB RAM is able to fit in?
I believe it will fit properly
after google-ing the MB and the RAM chip, it appears that it will fit.
Yes, it'll fit, no reason why it shouldn't.
The last 2 posts have made me ejaculatingly happy. I'm so high now even drugs can't stop me!!! AHHhhhhhhhhhHHHhh!
But thanks you guys.
