A small outline dual inline memory module (SODIMM) consists of a number of memory components (usually black) that are attached to a printed circuit board (usually green). SODIMMs get their name because they are smaller and thinner than regular DIMMs. The gold pins on the bottom of the SODIMM provide a connection between the module and a socket on a larger printed circuit board. The pins on the front and back of a SODIMM are not connected.
200-pin SODIMMs are used to provide DDR and DDR2 SDRAM memory for notebook computers. To use DDR or DDR2 memory, your system motherboard must have 200-pin SODIMM slots and a DDR- or DDR2-enabled chipset. A DDR or DDR2 SODIMM will not fit into a standard SDRAM SODIMM socket. (Information about which memory technology your system uses is included in the Crucial Memory Advisor™ tool.)
The number of black components on a 200-pin SODIMM can vary, but it always has 100 pins on the front and 100 pins on the back, for a total of 200. 200-pin SODIMMs are approximately 2.625 inches long and 1.25 inches high, though the heights can vary. Like 144-pin SODIMMs, 200-pin SODIMMs have one small notch within the row of pins; however, the notch on the 200-pin SODIMMs is closer to the left side of the module.

Q:HI! I would like to know which of the two SoDIMM specifications could make me happier with my Inspiron 1420: A SoDIMM @800 MHZ CL=6 or a SoDIMM @667 MHZ but CL=5. Thank you!
A:The 800 Mhz, PC2 -6400 modules are faster. Though this may not be a noticeable difference when installed.
Q:Can I install an 8GB kit in my iMac & if so what is the product name and cost? - John
A:Your iMac, can take a maximum of 4GB over the two slots. You will not be able to install 8GB into this system.
Q:I have e6400 BIOS A19 running on it. Do I need BIOS upgraded to use this memory?
A:A BIOS update is not automatically required after a RAM upgrade although it can be. The best thing is to install the RAM and if it works fine with no issues (none are anticipated as such) then there will be no need to update the BIOS from the Dell website.
Q:Internet video runs choppy, only have 1 gig of ram will a 4 gb upgrade fix this
A:Video files can be rather large and playing them can take up a lot of RAM. Upgrading your memory will allow you to run larger files without your system slowing down so it should help with the issues you are having.
Q:Can i put 2 4GB memory cards into my iMAC so that it has 8GB of memory?
A:The maximum memory this system can take is 4GB so you would not be able to put 8GB in this system it would not work.
Q:What does the 6400 mean (Feature: DDR2 PC2-6400), i.e., what is the difference between this and RAM with identical specs except for Feature: DDR2 PC2-5300?
A:Two speeds of RAM are supported on your model – 667MHz (PC2-5300) and 800MHz (PC2-6400). The speed the RAM can run at depends on what the memory bus speed is set to in your BIOS. You can check what this is set to, match the speed of the current RAM (check the module label or try running the system scanner on our website) or just opt for the faster speed and it will clock down to the slower speed if necessary. Only a 64-bit version of Windows will address and utilize the full 4GB. Otherwise, with a 32-bit version only about 3GB-3.5GB will be seen and used.
Q:I have a 2048MB which is equal to 2GB. Can I purchase one 2 GB and trade it out with the 1024 MB so that it adds up to 4 GB. The manufacturer will not be the same though. I know your in business to make money but I'm unemployed and need all the help I can get.
A:Your model can support up to 4GB over the 2 slots - 2GB per slot. The module sizes need not be the same and can be mixed for example a 1GB module + a 2GB module.
Q:What is the difference between DDR2 PC2 6400 and DDR2 PC2 5300? They're both compatible, same price - so why choose one over the other?
A:The difference between both modules is the speed to which the data is transferred from the memory module to the CPU: PC2-6400 (800MHz) and PC2-5300 (667MHz). We would always recommend you to go for the fastest memory modules, however please note that when memory modules with different speeds are mixed in a system they will all only run as fast as the slowest memory module installed.
Q:Do I have to install anything for these? Do I get two cards at 2GB each?
A:No, memory is fully plug-and-play. Once you have installed the modules the computer will take over and automatically make any necessary adjustments. This 4GB kit is a matched pair of two 2GB modules.
Q:Would 800 Mhz work faster for my HP DV9723 Ca than 667 Mhz?
A:Yes it will and it is compatible for your system. Below is the link with the compatible memory.
