Q:I have a Dell Dimension 8400. I want to take out the memory and add 3GB of higher speed memory. These Crucial 1GB modules seem to have the same specs as memory which Dell says is compatible with my 8400. Yet Crucial's Memory Advisor says this module is not compatible. Is this correct?
A:Only PC2-5300 modules will work in this system:
Q:What does the 6400 stand for
A:PC2-4200 (DDR2-533), PC2-5300 (DDR2-667), PC2-6400 (DDR2-800), and PC2-8500 (DDR2-1066) memory are all types of Double Data Rate, second-generation SDRAM, usually referred to as DDR2. The varying numbers refer to the different speeds of memory your computer was designed for. PC2-6400 (DDR2-800), which has a bandwidth of 6.4GB/sec and is designed for use in systems and motherboards that require a 400MHz front-side bus, with an effective front-side bus speed of 800MHz.
A:Its referring to the speed of the ram itself in technical terms mostly labeled on the packaging of the item. A dimm module for example a 2gb 800mhz 240 pin PC2-6400 is clocked at 800mhz so the 800mhz is multiplied by 8 bit (smallest digital character) which equals 6400(800x8=6400), same thing goes for a dimm(ram) which is clocked at 667mhz then this would be 667x8=5336 but on the box of the ram you'll see PC2-5300.
A:The 6400 is basically the speed that the RAM runs at. Not sure what the speed is measured by (GHz or MB ect) but naturally the higher the better, however, if you are installing more RAM into a computer then the RAM will only go as fast as the slowest RAM already installed.
I even tried booting Type 1 ram by itself, and my PC still refuses to boot.
Hi there, I wish to enquire about the compatibility of RAMs for this laptop as I am planning on upgrading it to 16GB due to my power usage.
However, in Singapore, the distributor only sells the RAM here
is this the same as
because i am not sure if
is compatible with Lenovo z400 when using the compatibility tool... its confusing for me.
I am planning to get 2 sticks of these instead of the 16GB KIT (8GB x 2) as my country doesnt seem to sell it
I am sorry for the issues that you have been experiencing with your memory upgrade. What sort of issues are you having? Is it beeping when installed or not starting all together? Have you tried the memory one at a time? or each pair individually?
Thanks in advance!
Thanks for contacting us today. A download for this information can be found here. You will need to use the Micron part number MT36KSZF2G72LDZ-1G6 (this is the Micron equivalent to CT16G3ELSLQ8160B) for finding this download on the link above. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
Thank you for contacting us today. Your system actually can use 1600mhz RAM. We have done extensive testing on our end to guarantee compatibility. As long as you are purchasing from the compatibility list you will not have any issues upgrading your RAM.
In some cases manufacturers may not be able to test new memory module speeds after the system has been released, and this may be why you are not seeing this speed listed. Please let me know if you have any other questions or concerns.
