Solved Replacement memory for a pc133

November 21, 2013 at 06:58:03
Specs: windows xp, 2.793 GHz / 1014 MB
Good day,

I have less experience on the hardware side of computers, and have yet to have to order a replacement dram component. I have a board listed as "32x64 PC133" on the chip, I did a search online and found multiple hits on a PC133, however I am concerned that there is a different number that I need to be looking for on the circuit board. Thanks for the help.

edit: note that i seem to be unable to remove computer description fully, the one that is listed is not the one I am piecing together.

for the most accurate answer please list the computer model (ex- dell dimension 2350), or the motherboard model number.

You need to look up the motherboard specs to see what it supports. The main issue with old SDR-SDRAM (PC100 / PC133) is there's high density & low density varieties. All boards support low density but only some boards support high density. One way to tell is by how much RAM is supported per slot. Usually, if a board only supports 256MB or less per slot, it requires low density; if it supports up to 512MB per slot, high density can be used. Another problem is the way memory manufacturer's list the old RAM specs.

Do you actually need PC133? Does the CPU run at 133MHz (or 266MHz) FSB? PC100 is usually low density, PC133 can go either way.

sea04505828 aaa19243403 Not sure if these are the numbers you are needing or not. It didn't come up with a search on google. my plan was just to direct swap the dram so I didnt have to worry about it.


I should mention that I don't have much experience with anything aside from parts swapping, so I appreciate the information
