Corsair Ram wont work with my Dell Workstation

Recommended Posts

Hi All. I just bought 4 gigs of Corsair ram in the form of 4 * 1 GIG modules (pc2100 ECC REG 266mhz).

 

The problem is, even though this type of ram is "supposed" to work, my system seems to reject it as incompatible. The Dell tech support guy was even stumped.

 

Are there any known issues with this type of ram when used with my system? Here are my sytem specs:

 

Dell Precision 450 Workstation

Dual Xeon 2.4ghz CPU's

NVidia quadroFX1100 video card

 

thanks for any help

What is the exact part # and revision # of each stick?

How To Read the Memory Label

 

Based on the following info, it doesn't look like it's compatible with registered modules. IIRC, Corsair doesn't make any unbuffered (not registered) ECC sticks.

 

 

Dell Precision Workstation 450/450n

 

2.0 GB (ECC)/4.0 GB (non-ECC)

Hi. "Version" numbers don't appear to be listed on the stick label but here is the part number(same on all 4 stick labels)

CM72SD1024RLP-2100

 

The packaging states that it is registered memory:

DDR 1GB 2100 ECC REG COR

128x72 ECC REG

266MHz

 

 

I guess I will return these mem sticks tomorrow and try to find some "unbuffered" ECC and give it a try.
