RDRAM for a Dell Dimension 8250

Please assist. Was it 40ns or 45ns? Steve G.

What was the speed of the rambus you purchased? For obvioous reasons, I wanted to buy off eBay as I cannot stomach buying memory at the prices most places, Dell included, want to charge for memory.

I just bought 2gig (4 sticks) of Samsung PC800 off eBay. The system has been halted. IN the FAQs at the Rambus web site, they state that in "most" systems you can mix speed grades. When I installed it and restarted the system, I got the following error message:

Unsupported memory was detected in slot(s):
Please replace with RDRAM PC800-40ns or faster.

Thank you! Was it ECC or Non ECC?

MY Dell came with 521K of PC1066. Anyone have any idea why my system is telling me this and how I can get around it?

Do I have to go through Dell to upgrade my system's RDRAM?

I would just go through Dell for it, but they want around 350 bucks or something for 2 sticks of 256Mb RDRAM. it takes PC1066, 533 Mhz RDRAM. I might as well buy a new computer if it's going to cost over 300 bucks for 512 Mb of RAM.

Regards Howard :wave: :wave:

within the same conversation, with 2 different people, the tech support guys told me I HAVE to go through Dell, and then later in the conversation they said that I could buy from another vendor, and the only difference would be that if anything went wrong with the computer or memory, they wouldn't help me. No you do not have to go through Dell. I want to upgrade my RAM, and I am getting conflicting information from several different sources that say I either *must* or *do not have to* purchase RDRAM for my computer through Dell.

Dell's tech support is worthless. other sites sell it for as little as around 150 bucks for a pair.

ok, so I have a Dell Dimension 8250, 2.4Mhz P4, with the standard 128Mb RDRAM.

Dell Precision 530 last RDRAM model 02/2002

But the sequence in where the start up screen stops may point to a new controller card. The new SCSI cable is a China special and does not seem to fit tight like they have in the past. Here is the sequence of events on the screen: 1.

Now the 3 yellow lights (which code out to a new bios, which I checked my is still the latest version, or a mobo - hope not). I just have one monitor, key board, and mouse hooked up to trouble shoot and it still does nothing. I think it is a hardware problem, but it may not be (?)I have a Dell 530 with dual 280 GHz Intel processors with an Adaptec SCSI controller (biggest effectively for 32 bit I believe) 4932 or 3932?, dual cheetah 15K scsi's, and 4GB RDRAM. cool days without AC blowing.

The Adaptec runs through all 15 slots of both sides of card I think and it finds the one I am using for Raid 0.4. Windows first dos screen processes,3. Dell bios processes,2. Replace the cable....Then try swapping in a new PSU...see if that changes anything...

Usually the fix is a new SCSI harddrive cable (because of cable ends loosen up) or my spysweeper is about to run out.I got a new cable and a new ($2 off amazon) spysweeper and it worked for about a month. Then it stops with the cursor blinking_ _ _ _ _ _ _Also, recently it started up better in the summer with cool AC blowing vs. XP Pro version 3.Every few years it acts up by showing 3 yellow lights on diagnosis and won't start up every time. Both of these factors may poi...

Dell 8100 RAMBUS RDRAM RIMM upgrade problem

I thought about the non-ECC/ECC angle but I've never read anything reliable that says the 8100 can't take ECC. I've waited up to a half hour for the machine to boot but nothing happens. I've tried removing the two 128s and installing the four 256s, and I've tried installing two of the 256s along with the two 128s.

The disk drive light seems to be flashing in a sequence that repeates every 5 or 6 seconds. Even so, installing the non-ECC and ECC together should have defaulted the ECC to non-ECC.

In either case the setup screen correctly recognizes the installed modules but the boot process hangs, even in safe mode.

I'm trying to get a little more life out of my Dell Dimension 8100 (1.7 MHz, OS and BIOS upgraded to XP SP2 a couple years ago) by upgrading the RAMBUS RDRAM RIMM from 256 MB to 1GB (i.e. 2 x 128MB PC800 45ns non-ECC modules to 4 x 256MB PC800 45ns ECC modules) that I recently purchased on eBay.

Can you have 2x RDRAM pc800 w/ 2x RDRAM pc1066?

Or do I infact have to have all 4 slots filled with the same stick? All info I have found tells me they must run in pairs so its either 4x PC800 or 4x PC1066 or I hope 2/2 of both PC800/1066. I have 2x 256 RDRAM pc1066 in my Dell Demented and I was wondering if I can upgrade with 2 sticks of RDRAM pc800.

RDram Upgrade to Dell 8100 won't recognize new memory in CRIMM slots

Memory loaded in Crimm slots just makes CPU beep and then not to boot. You have to match the mem. New memory works in Slot 1 and 2 with Crimm in 3 and 4. Someone I know had the same prob, 45 rdram not wanting to run with 40.

I've been to several different memory suppliers and one says my CPU has a 1G capacity while another says I have a 2G capacity--the upshot is, is the arrangement in my CPU such that I can only load slots 1 and 2? What is unusual about the slot arrangement is that Slot 1 and 2 are closely associated, while 3 and 4 have a bit of real estate between them. At least he did....

Dell 8200

Here's what could be a simple question. My wife has a Dell 8200. Is Dell propriatary and has to have a "certain" type of RAM?

I have a spare 512 Ram, can I install it? Skyholder

It only has 256 of RAM.

Dell 8200 RAM Help

Install the same type of modules that are already in your system. Installed them, thought everything was going well...... Some motherboards will work OK with either one, but probably not in this case. You can put non-ECC modules into an ECC system, but be sure not to mix ECC and non-ECC modules within a system.

Ok I just got the Dell Dimension 1GB PC800 RDRAM 1024MB Rambus RIMM I won on eBay. The memory you got - KINGSTON RDRAM # KTD-DM800E/1024 ECC. Edit: However this is what I found at Crucial: Your system supports ECC. then I started the computer back up and it tells me that the two are unsupported and to get the correct type.

Before I even started looking on eBay, I did research on the RAM for this computer, thought I knew what needed to be known. My computer is a:
Dell 8200
Pentium 4
CPU 2.40GHz
2.39 GHz, 256 MB of RAM

What did I do wrong?

According to this the memory you need is PC800 (non-ECC). You got ECC memory, you need non-ECC.

So it just might be that you can't mix ECC and non-ECC.

Dell inspiron 8200 TV OUT?

Also, I would love to know if TV IN is possible (can I watch TV on my laptop)
Again, its a Dell inspiron 8200 with WINDOWS XP PRO installed and running. As far as the TV in goes, it would have to have a TV in connector, or a TV tuner card...

Do I need to reboot after plugging the cables from the TV to the laptop?

Don't really know about the 8200, but on my 7500, I have to go into Display Properties - Settings - Advanced button - Displays tab and enable the TV out... First all, I have the plug that connects my TV to my laptop, but when I set that up, TV OUT does not work (in other words I do not see my laptop image on my TV). or is there some settings i need to change on the computer?

Need Help upgrading RAM in a Dell 8200

DELL wanted to sell it to us for like $500, but told me to check ebay, which was going for like $100, and I saw on Amazon some going for $60. I know that it is that DIMM memory where you have to add two like cards at a time. Where is a good place to buy them and what is a good price?

Thank you

Search your computer's make and model number online and check for sure exactly what type of memory your supposed to get and the majority of MG'ers would recommend for the best deals but also check TigerDirect and Micro Center. Please help. Hope that helps!

Dell Inspiron 8200

I would like to put a faster processor. Since I am not real computer savy, I need to know if on an Inspiron 8200 laptop, is the processor easily replaced like on a desktop? I hope you can help me.

If it can be replaced easily, then I would like to do so. Is the Inspiron that way or is it soldiered to the Mother Board. I know on a desktop, they just plug in. I currently have a 1.20 gigahertz Intel Pentium 4.

Dell Dimension 8200

Or am I better off just buying a new processor?

Go here and click on Scan My System it will tell you what you have in your System and what you can put in. Also, can I put these RAM into my PC?

Memory will give you more workable in a sense it will be quicker.

If I put in more RAM does that mean that my computer will go faster?

How do I know what kind of RAM I have in my PC?

ram for my dell 8200 - how expensive?!!

its looking like i'd be better off selling the machine and buying a new one fully loaded that getting one stick for this one!cheers,jake

I'm not sure where to go from here ...

I have a 7 yr old Dell Dimension 8200 that basically walks at about 1 mph. The Geeks said everything scanned fine and they think it may be corrupt Microsoft XP.

Unfortunately I can't locate my Recovery Disks (if any came w/the Dell).

I am currently running Disk Cleanup and I'm not sure if it is even running or not.

Anyway, it is soooo slow, I'm not sure I can run the various things that would help the clean up. But I'm willing to give it a try.

Upgrading Proccessor on Dell 8200

I use this machine for all sorts of applications including gaming. I can also upgrade for $50.00 less without the kit. Would my computer see a significant increase in speed if I did this?

The upgraded proccessor costs $269.00 with the kit. I can upgrade my Intel P4 proccessor to a 2.8 with a PowerLeap kit that includes a fan and etc. JJB

Any suggestions or help would be greatly appreciated.

Dell inspiron 8200 not booting up

I went into the bios to make sure the hd was recognized and the bootup would boot from the cd rom and floppy in case I needed to use the start up disk. I have tried differant boot up sequences with no progress. Please help. Thats why I reformatted the HUD after getting computerhopes solutions to the message no NTLDR.

I reformatted that hd in another dell and loaded xp on it to see if the hd worked and it did. As things stand now, what happens when you press F1?  My dell 8200 crashed with out any life left. I put the hd in the inspiron and started it again.

At one time I received a message that the NTLDR is missing. My nephew decided it was a motherboard problem so we purchased another MB to put in. It booted up through the bios start up to a screen saying to hit F1 to continue but nothing happened.

So I reformatted it up to when the xp was about to load files and stoped the process so the inspiron could load xp on it. It booted up to the same place with the F1 posted on the screen.

RAM Memory for Dell Dimension 8200 (11/02)

I have 2 RIMM of 128Mb each and would look to double that at least, or could I buy one of 512Mb, leaving one slot free?As always, any advice gratefully received.
Can anyone advise me where to buy RDRAM memory? What should I be looking for? click here but it looks like you need to know the front side bus (fsb) and more info on the ram you have now eg is it Ecc....

I have been to Dell's 'selector' and have found a baffling array of different modules (supplied by Kingston) , all looking to be much the same but priced quite differently. AIDA32 may tell you but it should be with the info sent to you with the pc. My computer comes with it and, according to an outfit called Crucial, it seems that I am stuck with it.

Can you tell us the fsb and is it Ecc ram in your pc.
RDRAM seems to be much more expensive than other sorts.
