184 Pin SDRAM??

  Lady Lara 21:21 07 Jan 05

I have friend next door who asked me to upgrade her RAM. I looked and saw it was 184 pin and so assumed it is DDR. Ordered, fitted and it does not work. On closer inspection the RAM (Factory Fitted) is PC2700 SDRam 333 Mhz and has 1 gap in the pins (Take it that means 184 pin.) I had ordered a 256Mb PC 2700 DDR Ram and it was not right.

It is a HP PC and I am wondering if such a thing 184 pin SDRAM exists and where I can get 256 MB at 2.5cl and 333 Mhz PC2700.

Anyone Please??

PS. Have looked in ebuyer but am slightly confused.

It may be worth checking that the ram is seated firmly in. When you inserted the ram did you pull back the end lugs, press the ram firmly at either end so the lugs snapped shut by themselves. If the lugs did not fully snap up at both ends, it may not read the ram properly.

Worth a check.:-)

Lady Lara ;-)

Don't know if it's worth trying, you may have already done this, but sometimes if you swap the memory around you can get a problem stick to work. Have you tried taking out the old stick and putting the new one in. Bootup with just the one new stick of memory, if it works then you could try the old memory in the next slot.
