A dual inline memory module (DIMM) consists of a number of memory components (usually black) that are attached to a printed circuit board (usually green). The gold pins on the bottom of the DIMM provide a connection between the module and a socket on a larger printed circuit board. The pins on the front and back of a DIMM are not connected to each other.
184-pin DIMMs are used to provide DDR SDRAM memory for desktop computers. Standard 184-pin DIMMs are available in PC1600 DDR SDRAM, PC2100 DDR SDRAM, PC2700 DDR SDRAM, and PC3200 DDR SDRAM.
To use DDR memory, your system motherboard must have 184-pin DIMM slots and a DDR-enabled chipset. A DDR SDRAM DIMM will not fit into a standard SDRAM DIMM socket. (Information about which memory technology your system uses is included in the Crucial Memory Advisor™ tool.)
The number of black components on a 184-pin DIMM can vary, but it always has 92 pins on the front and 92 pins on the back, for a total of 184. 184-pin DIMMs are approximately 5.25 inches long and 1.25 inches high, though the heights can vary. While 184-pin DIMMs and 168-pin DIMMs are approximately the same size, 184-pin DIMMs have only one notch within the row of pins.
I have a new acer aspire E1-522-5423. There is a panel on the back to access the ram and hard drive. They are located in the front of the case not under the keboard...witch is not removable on this model. You can see the memory stick but it appears that you cannot remove it through the opening. Do you have to remove the whole circuit board to remove the ram
or am I missing something?? Acer says there are two slots with only one being used with 4GB stick. The rep I spoke with could not awnser my question on removal. Thanks for any information.
I just got a new Crucial ct102464ba160b http://www.crucial.com/usa/en/ct102464ba160b
based on the suggestion here http://n40l.wikia.com/wiki/Memory that it is compatible with
HP Microserver N54L
My system runs fine the the original 2GB HP memory but when I put the Crucial stick in
it doesn't POST (can't see anything on the screen at all).
How do I check whether the RAM is not compatible or it's simply a DOA?
I ran the scan, it takes me to this page,
CT3694396 - 8GB DDR3 PC3-12800 Unbuffered NON-ECC 1.5V 1024Meg x 64
I am sorry for the issues that you have been experiencing with your new RAM. How much RAM is found when you use our System Scanner. This scanner can be found here. If a module is missing (scanner shows empty slot), it's likely an installation issue.If the modules are half detected by the scanner, it could be a density issue. Please check the scanner and let us know and we can see what other troubleshooting we may be able to try.
got a rare bluescreen 0x0000001a "Memory Management".
My Motherboard is a Gigabyte H97 HD3. (Bios F4)
The Crucial Ram is a 8GB-Kit PC3 - 12800 CL9, 1.5v
I tested both sticks (together) with memtest for 12 passes overnight (0 errors),
Does it make sense to test each on its own ?
Are these components incompatible ?
