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. 200-pin SODIMMs are available in PC2700 DDR SDRAM, PC3200 DDR SDRAM, DDR2 PC2-6400 SDRAM, DDR2 PC2-5300 SDRAM, DDR2 PC2-4200 SDRAM and DDR2 PC2-3200 SDRAM. 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:Has anyone installed 4 on a macbook 2.16 ghz inter core 2 duo ddr2 sdram? Apple gives the option for 4gb on the site under memory for this computer and so does OWC micron etc just wondering why the scan that i did for crucial only recommended up to 2gb only? id perfer 4 if i could do it?
A:4GB will not work in this system and only 2GB is compatible over two slots.
Q:does 'kit' mean that it includes the screw driver and wrist along with the memory cards?
A:A KIT means that you receive two memory modules that where made and picked from the same batch of memory.
A:If your capacity is 3GB then it isnt adviseable installing more than this. Some Apple system though will allow a little more to be used and you can order this under our 45 day refund guarantee and should it not work you can be refunded.
Q:Hi I currently have this model as my laptop, I wanted to upgrade the current memory which is 2gb to 4gb, but I only fount that you sell only 4gb (2x2b) is there a way i can only purchase one 2gb? Thanks.
A:We do sell single 2GB modules for this system, please see the following link:
Q:Do I need any special equipment to install a memory upgrade?
A:Maybe just a screw driver to remove some of the casing but apart from that nothing else is required to install the module in the slot.
Q:Would this fit a Lenovo ThinkPad T61, running Win Vista 32, please?
A:That is the correct 4GB kit (2 x 2GB). Only the 64-bit version of Windows will address and utilize 4GB or more. Otherwise, with a 32-bit version only about 3GB-3.5GB will be seen and used.
Q:Going to upgrade to Lion and think more RAM will help. Here is what I have now:
A:It's the perfect upgrade. Worked magic.
A:New parts can be stiffer than original modules and especially if a slot has been previously unpopulated. Just as long as the cut out notch along the gold pins of the module is aligned up with the protrusion in the slot then apply a lot more pressure. No gold pins should be visible outside of the slot.
A:the second card probably goes under the key board. google install ram under key board or try youtube to watch a video of a install.
Q:i just noticed i purchased a 2GB, 200-pin SODIMM, DDR2 PC2-6400 memory module, when i should have chose, "2GB, 200-pin SODIMM, DDR2 PC2-5300 memory module" as i have a 32 not 64 win xp.
A:The speed of the memory module does not depend on the 32-bit or 64-bit operating system. Speed is backward compatible so it should still work fine in your system.
Q:how/where do I install the new memory on a black MacBook?
A:You can find an installation guide here: http://support.apple.com/manuals/#MacBook (13 inch) - Memory Replacement Instructions
A:You can download the user manual for your black MacBook from Apple. The diagrams for installing new memory are clear and easy to understand. Basically, you simply have to unplug the power cord (if you are using one) and any USB or other devices. Lay the MacBook upside down on a soft surface, such as a towel. You will need a small Phillips head screwdriver. Remove the battery cover and the battery. Unscrew the L-bracket holding the memory module(s). The screws have to be loosened completely, but they won’t fall out of the bracket. Follow the instructions and pull out the old modules. They might be in there tight, so you would need good finger strength. When pushing in the new module(s), be sure to push them in all the way (finger strength again). Replace the L-bracket and the battery and the battery cover, and you should be good to go.
A:Here are the instructions from Apple:
A:take out the battery on the underside, then with a really small screwdriver take out the 3 mini screws and remove the metal strip. now pop the arm looking things out and just replace the old memory strips with the new ones (watch the slit and replace exactly as they came out) if you need more info, youtube search black macbook memory upgrade :) hope this helped
A:Remove battery, flip the little locking levers, replace new memory in exactly the same way/ place you removed the old one, making sure the little notch is in the same place. Takes a bit of effort to snap them into place. Lock up the levers, replace battery.
