Is there more than 1 type of DDR2 RAM





Possum
Hi

I have 2 desktop machines. Both have DDR2 RAM. I only use one of these computers so I though I would take the memory out of one and put it in the other.

It fitted in but the computer would not boot....


hmmmmmmmmmm

What did I do wrong..

The computer I put the RAM in has 4 banks which I filled up.

1 gig
1 gig
1 gig
2 gigs

You're really lucky.
One of my friend installed an incorrect ram stick,
and there were spark and smoke popping out of the motherboard.
The motherboard was totally broken, so was the ram stick.
He had to buy a new motherboard and a new memory stick.
Sad story.

Sorry about the late reply..

My Computer is a Dell Inc. OptiPlex 755 Board: Dell Inc. 0PU052 the processor is the E8400.

I run the CrucialScan as well as the Belarc adviser. Thats how I found out what Mother Board I have.

I think My memory runs at 800..

Hmm, which one of those sticks are new? Just one, or more?
Possum
They are all old..

Im just to squeeze another couple of years out of my gear!

Sorry, I meant which ones did you newly add (causing the system not to boot)? If you added two or more, did you try using one at a time? It's possible one might be faulty.
