Hi I recently bought 2 x 1gb of pc 3200 184 pin (LD 400 MHZ DIMM CL 2.0 and it wont work on my PC. The memory that is in my machine is just the same as far as I can see? It fits perfectly! I have a Compaq SR 1719 could anyone tell me if this is compatible or am I doing something wrong or is the memory faulty? Thanks
Not sure I bought it from ebay, the person I got it from told me it was compatible with my machine before I bought it, I just want to make sure it is the wrong memory or if its faulty before I return it
Hi yes Ive taken out all the dimms and installed new one at a time. When I turn on the machine it beeps? and nothing happens just a black screen. My machine is compaq SR 1719uk . Installed just now is 1 GB PC 3200 DDR 400 MHZ DIMM just the same as what Im trying to install, so not sure at all why it wont work??? Ahhhh
maybe I am mistaken but that shouldn't be a problem...the CL 2 chips are faster than the CL 2.5 or 3 so they should have no problem slowing themselves down to a 2.5 or 3 latency.....
Unfortunately most Compaq systems only accept memory modules that meet the specs. They don't try to adjust them; therefore it's much better to buy modules that are certified to be compatible by the manufacturer.
