Dell :: Which RAM/memory Kingston, Corsair, PNY Or Dell Certified?

Sep 14, 2007

I enjoy gaming, although I wouldn't consider myself a "hardcore" gamer. I currently have 1024 MB of RAM (2 x 512) and I am looking to upgrade soon. My options are as follows:

- Dell certfied RAM

- PNY RAM

- Kingston RAM

- Corsair RAM

Of course, for the Dell RAM, I have to wait for the shipping, but it is one of the cheaper ones. However, any of the other three I can pick up at Best Buy (which is more convenient). Can someone point out the pros and cons of each? It seems the PNY is a great buy, but could there be performance problems compared to the others? And why is the Kingston so expensive?

Dell :: Corsair X256 Extreme SSD & E6400 Compatible?

Apr 6, 2010

Is anyone running the Corsair X256 SSD with an E6400 without any problems?

I recently replaced my stock drive with the X256 SSD (love the speed) Everything worked beautifully for three day, on the fourth... "No bootable devices found, please reseat your hard drive" message appears at morning boot.

I reseat the drive and boots fine. Next day, same thing... I found myself reseating the drive every morning multiple reseats at times. Appears to happen every morning and when resuming from sleep.

I have the latest drives, chipset, BIOS, you name it. I posted on Crosair's Forum and was advised to disable sleep mode. I did and problem still occurs. Today Dell sent out a tech to replace my motherboard, I guess I'll know tonight or tomorrow if the cause was the Mobo.

Anyone successfully running an SSD on their system?

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: Kingston SSD Not Detected

Dec 28, 2012

I recently got a T440s and wanted to replace the hdd with the SSD from my old laptop, and it is not being detected at boot. It works fine in my e420s.The SSD is a Kingston V+200 240GB. It's a 7mm drive.When I turn on Diagnostic boot in the BIOS I get the following error message:

PXE-E61: Media Test Failure, check cable
PXE-M0F: Exiting Intel Boot Agent.
 
It seems like their is a problem with the connector? The SSD in the computer can actually wiggle around a little bit (<1mm), it seems like it shouldn't do that.

Lenovo T400 / T500 :: T420S Compatible With Kingston 240 GB SSD?

Nov 16, 2013

We installed a Kinston 240 GB SSD in the Ultrabay, and it is not fully recognizing the SSD - it does not show up as a device, though we know the machine knows it is there, and we could use Linux and ghost to it..
 
We then ghosted to it with no issues.  We then put it in the main bay, but it would not boot. 
 
We looked at it from the USB port of another computer, and the files looked fine. Are we missing a driver?

Lenovo X Series ThinkPad :: X230 Kingston RAM - Just Flash And BIOS Doesn't Boot After Pressing Power Button

Mar 3, 2014

I got a X230 with 4GB 1Rx8 PC3-12800S-11-12-B4 memory installed. I tried to upgrade it with two Kingston KVR1066D3S7/4G 1.5V memory sticks.
 
Unfortunately after installing new memory sticks (combinations don't matter) my laptop doesn't power on. After pressing the button there's just a flash and BIOS doesn't boot.
 
Everything is back to normal after restoring the previous RAM configuration.
 
Is there something wrong with my memory sticks or is it some kind of bior issue or maybe something else?

Dell :: Memory Speed Affecting Windows Experience (memory Operations)

Oct 13, 2008

A friend just showed me his new Dell Vostro lappy. He has 4 GB of DDR2 800mhz memory on it when compared to my 4 GB of DDR2 667mhz memory on my XPS 1530

However, under his windows experience score - he gets 5.9 score for memory operations while I just get a 5.1. I can't believe that a couple of hundred mhz can result in such a drastic difference.

Is there something optimized for his system but not for mine?

HP EliteBook 8540w :: Identifying Correct Memory Slot For RAM Upgrade To Enable Dual Channel Memory

Jan 12, 2015

I just purchased a used Elitebook 8540w with i7 quad core and four memory slots (I love it!).  It is running 64 bit Windows 7 Professional  It came with one 4gb memory module and I purchased an additional 4gb module to bring total RAM to 8gb.  
 
I have the HP document that shows for two 4gb memory modules, one should be in memory slot 1 and the other in memory slot 3 for correct functioning of dual channel memory.  All set right?
 
Not quite.  In the Elitebook 8540w, the primary memory slots under the keyboard are clearly labeled "1" and "2"  However, the expansion memory slots on the underside of the chassis are also clearly labeled "1" and "2"  Opps!  There is no "3" and there is no "4"  In which of the unfilled three slots do I install the second 4gb module for correct functioning of dual channel memory?

Dell :: XPS 16 (Bluray And Memory)...

Apr 10, 2010

I have been hearing that the read/playback performance of the bluray drive on this laptop is terrible. Some say that it stutters all the way through an entire movie and it is very loud. Is this true? My second question is about the $375 charge for upgrading from 4GB RAM to 8GB RAM. Is it overpriced? Also, how easy is it to upgrade the RAM on the XPS 16?

Dell :: Memory Upgrade

Nov 6, 2009

I have a 2.5 year old E1705 notebook. I'm going to upgrade to W7 soon and in the process I thought I'd upgrade my memory from 2GB to 4GB.

I ran Dell's utility from their tech support page and it seems to be the case that the maximum my computer will support is 2GB! Is that possible?

In any case, I ran a diagnostic program (from Dell's utility) and it says my computer has two memory slots, and currently each slot on my computer has "Dual In-line Memory Module 1GB, 533, 128X64, 8K, 200", whatever that means.

I assume the 533 is memory speed (Hz) value. So according to Dell's utility, I am unable to increase the amount of RAM, but I could, for instance, "upgrade" to better chips (i.e., Dell sells DDR2 SDRAM Memory Speed: 800 MHz). Price would be $56.

Dell :: What Mark Is Your Ram/memory

Mar 21, 2009

I'm with Studio 1535 and strangely for me with:

2 GB Kingston
1 GB Sam sung

on Dell Web my notebook appears as only 2 GB Kingston.

But Kingston is very good ram mark.

Samsung is wide used by HP.

So I guess they both are very good!In my eyes Kingston is better but Sam sung is not bad too. (I doubt my samsung blank little overheat but I don't have issues with my ram till now, so...)

Dell :: 8 GB Memory On M1730

Nov 27, 2008

I was wondering if anyone had tried putting those G-Skill 4GB memory chips onto a Dell m1730 laptop, and if so, did they notice any major performance gains in doing so.

I use a few simulators at home, especially a Cisco sim called Dynamips which is both a CPU and memory hog, and I also use VMWARE a bit, so I thought I'd see if it's worth the upgrade to 8 GBs of RAM.

Any comments on stability, usefulness, experiences in Vista, etc. getting the system to recognize the full 8 GBs of RAM, etc.

Dell :: Clarification On Physical Memory

Jun 13, 2009

I'm an owner of a sxps 1340 and have the following problem. My system freezes after 5 minutes of operating. It does that 3 out of the 4 times if I reboot. I think this appeared after I installed the videocard update when I received the Dell "Alert".

After corresponding with Dell they advised me to do a system restore, which didn't help. So now I did a factory image restore to bring everything back as initially.

My system has 4GB of internal memory, but if I start task manager I only see 2301MB of physical memory. And my system is using 51% of the total physical memory. This without having installed any programs except the one that came with the factory image.

My question is: Could this be a memory hardware failure?

I've attached a printscreen of my task manager.

Dell :: Adding Memory To A D620

Apr 18, 2010

I like my Dell D620 so much that I just got another one. I've heard that I should not add an additional 1G module to the existing 1G in this laptop, but rather that it is best to replace the existing 1G with either two matched 1G modules or one 2G module. Is that correct? Seems a shame to toss the 1G that's already in there . . .

Could I add a 2G module to the 1G that's already in there? I'm assuming that the bay will accept two RAM modules.

The OS is XP-Pro, SP3, if that matters.

This is the RAM that dell recommends for my laptop to upgrade:

Dell :: Nvsvc32.exe 400MB Memory

Mar 8, 2008

I am thinking this is something related to the drivers for my video card, nvsvc32.exe seems to be part of the Nvidia drivers.

What I do not understand is why it's currently using up ~40 - 50% continuous CPU and 402,456K of memory.

While svchost.exe is using up the rest of the CPU %.

I used task manager to just kill them both, nothing has seemed to change "stability wise" and they are no long using up that much CPU/Memory.

Dell :: Swissbit/Micron Memory

Oct 18, 2007

I'm looking to upgrade my M90 to 4GB. Normally I use crucial, but they are charging 190 for 2 x 2GB DDR2 5300 chips.

I've had a look on Ebay and I can get the same for 110. When I asked who made the chips he said "Micron/Crucial chips from Swissbit." To be honest I'm not sure if that means they are made by Crucial or by Swissbit. Anyone know about these?

There was another EBayer who was selling Buffallo chips for 120. If these are well known I may go for these. I'm just a bit wary of buying brands I haven't heard of.

Incidentally, I presume that 1x1GB + 1X2GB will be slower than matching chips (I considered only buying one 2GB stick as I already have 2x1GB, but I seem to recall that the chips need to mirror one another for optimum speed)

I've just noticed the 3.25gb thread which suggests dual channel mode is normally only slightly faster.
