My computer wont accept new memory
I still have about 500 GX270’s in the field (yes, they have all had the mobos replaced), and have lots of extra PC2700 DDR DRAM just packed into bags. I wish I could just send you some, but sadly I work for the Government, so it was basically paid for with your tax dollars, so it’s not mine to give away sigh
If you want to get good memory that is guaranteed to work, I would recommend Crucial. It’s guaranteed to work, and really not that expensive. Here is the link for the 2GB kit for a GX270 (full desktop and mini tower models only)When you get it, install it then when you power on the PC, go into the BIOS (F2) and load defaults, save and exit. You might get the screen that shows the memory has changed and you have the F1 to continue, but I always adidas flux like to see it in the BIOS and then save and exit
I hope you can return that other RAM. Hopefully you did not buy it of eBay. There are TONS of eBay sellers who sell RAM that is utter CRAP, and when you include the ridiculous amounts they charge for “shipping,” it’s really not worth it.
Crucial isn’t the BEST RAM in the world, but it is reliable, warrantied and guaranteed to work. Also, based on what you posted above and the issues with the other sticks, you might want to blow out your DIMM slots in case there’s a piece of crud in one causing a bad contact. And seat it good and hard!
This is probably a stupid question, but you are putting the RAM in the matched slots, right? Sorry. had to ask
I save several thousands of dollars worth of ram every year for my customers by just washing it.
Ram works mor adidas flux e on voltage than current, and dirt between the little legs on the sides of the ram chips can cause them to short out, thus failing.
I washed a failing video card in my own computer about six years ago and that card is still working just fine today.
Cigarette smoke for instance has lots of carbon in it and is highly detrimental to ram memory. That’s just one reason why NO Smoking is allowed in Computer rooms and data centers.
While you’re there, you can also order the memory and put it on your credit card/debit card and have it shipped right to your house or adidas flux office.
Upgrading your PC don’t get much easier than that.
I saw someone ask the question, “DDR or DDR2?” That shouldn’t even be a question that needs to be asked. Most computer motherboards will only accept one or the other. DDR for instance won’t even fit in a DDR2 slot and vise versa.
DDR is the older type of ram and is becoming more expensive and harder to get. DDR2 is currently the most common and the least expensive. adidas flux The next big thing will be the DDR3 memory.
