VS versus CM in an Optiplex 170L


Recommended Posts

I just bought new VS1GB400C3 for 2 Optiplex 170L computers. The memory matchs the specs of the current memory aside from the increase in size (1GB vs 256MB), but when I put it in the computer just beeps when powered on. I just saw on your website that you recommend the CMSS1GB-400 for that model computer. Is there a difference in compatibility?


I'd hate to buy the CMSS1GB-400 and have it do the same thing. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Impossible the current RAM installed by dell is:

DUAL IN-LINE MEMORY MODULE, 256, 400M, 32X64, 8K, 184

and that has been physically verified.


Then I am sorry your system will only support DDR333 memory. You would need CMSS1GB-333.
