Having problems with your PC Desktops ?

DDR or DDR2

\015 My motherboard is old AOpen mx46. the problem is, can i use ddr2 on my motherboard? the 1st RAM of my pc is 128MB. but i dont know whether it s DDR or DDR2, because i already gave it to my friends after my others friends give me a new 512MB. i used the ram for 6 months. I dont know whether the RAM was ddr or ddr2, then i bring the RAM as a sample to buy a new one. then the sales person said that it is DDR, so i buyed it. i was very frustrated because ddr is more expensive then ddr2. when i back home, i reffered on the motherboard manual guide. i saw that it stated the motherboard use DDR266 184pin which i think it means DDR2 RAM. so weird, its freakin n confused me out. cause now my motherboard still alive now tih the ddr RAM. can my motherboard use ddr2 instead of ddr? i want to upgrade my RAM to 1GB, but the riddle off ddr were still playing on my mind...\015

Answers :

DDR 266 is DDR, not DDR 2 . The 266 is the frequency value in Mhz.

Try having the memory refunded or resell it on Ebay, so that you do not lose your money.

Here is supported memory, many older motherboards do not accept modules of over 512Mb each, ask to the seller:

RAM compatability I have a Sony VAIO and want to upgrade my RAM a second time. I've already upgraded once and the disc I installed then is a DDR PC2-5300. This time around I consulted Sony.com, which advises that I install a DDR2 PC-3200 400 MHz disc. My question is, does it matter that one disc is a DDR PC2-5300 and the other will be a DDR2 PC-3200? Are they compatible? What is the difference between these two types of disc?


The clock speed on the 5300 is higher however when installed with a 3200 the 5300 will "clock down" to the 3200 speed.  They are both compatible in this situation.   ... PC Laptops
