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.

Maximum memory: 2048MB
Slots: 2 (2 banks of 1) [240-pin DDR2 DIMM Banking] and 2 (2 banks of 1) [184-pin DIMM Banking]
*Not to exceed manufacturer supported memory.
Although the memory can be installed one module at a time, the best performance comes from using matched pairs of modules.
DDR and DDR2 modules can not be utilized at the same time. Each memory type is supported seperately.
Memory or DRAM is the "working" memory of the computer. It's used to store data for programs (sequences of instructions) on a temporary basis.
Problem is, what RAM do I order?
I currently have 3 gigs, so I think I needjust 1 2 gig block to match the other 2 gig, to get the max 4 gig output.
I dont think using the other slot pairing would work.
I am very sorry for the issues that you have experienced with your upgrade. It does appear that you have gone through all the trouble shooting steps we would recommend to perform.
At this point I would recommend contacting us directly using the information in my signature. I am sorry for the inconvenience that this may cause.
I plan to upgrade the memory of my netbook ASUS Eee 1015PX to 2GB. From the factory it has one Hynix HMT112S6TFR8C-H9 memory.
I used the tool on your website to identify the required Crucial memory. It recommends:
2GB DDR3 PC3-12800 Unbuffered NON-ECC 1.35V part #:CT5630031
for the upgrade.
According to the description, that is 1.35V memory, whereas the Hynix memory is 1.5V (+/- 0,075V).
Will the Crucial memory work in my machine?
I forgot to click "Emal me when someone replies." and want to see when someone replies.
Thank you for contacting us today. Both parts are completely compatible with one another. We only use part number CT915213 in order to guarantee the compatibility of CT25664AA800 with the Dell Optiplex 760. Please let us know if you have any other questions or if there is anything else we can help with.
