gerryf Posted January 17, 2006 Share Posted January 17, 2006 Well, I checked the memory configurator and it did not list my system, a Sager Midtern 5680 (also known as a Clevo D500p) I have tried several different types of Ram to no avail, nothing will boot other than the 512mb of pc3200 ram it presently has. I would dearly love to upgrade to a gig of Ram as I am currently running VMware for some software testing and the 512 just isn't cutting it anymore. This is what I have at present Chipset Information : Type : DDR-SDRAM PC3200 Frequency : 200 MHz FSB/RAM Multiplier : 1/1x Channels : Dual Mode : Linear PAT Enabled : No ECC Diagnostic : No CAS Latency (tCL) : 3 clocks RAS to CAS (tRCD) : 4 clocks RAS Precharge (tRP) : 4 clocks Cycle Time (tRAS) : 8 clocks Information SPD EEPROM () : Manufacturer : Apacer Technology Part Number : Unspecified Serial Number : Unspecified Type : DDR-SDRAM PC3200 (200 MHz) Size : 256 MB (1 rows, 4 banks) Module Buffered : No Module Registered : No Width : 64-bit Error Correction Capability : No Max. Burst Length : 8 Refresh : Reduced (.5x)7.8 µs, Self Refresh Voltage : SSTL 2.5v Supported Frequencies : 133 MHz, 166 MHz, 200 MHz CAS Latency (tCL) : 2 clocks @133 MHz, 2.5 clocks @166 MHz, 3 clocks @200 MHz RAS to CAS (tRCD) : 3 clocks @133 MHz, 3 clocks @166 MHz, 4 clocks @200 MHz RAS Precharge (tRP) : 3 clocks @133 MHz, 3 clocks @166 MHz, 4 clocks @200 MHz Cycle Time (tRAS) : 6 clocks @133 MHz, 7 clocks @166 MHz, 8 clocks @200 MHz It would seem that VS512SDS333 would work, but seeing as how my FSB is 200mghtz, wouldn't I be taking a performance hit? I would like to try VS512SDS400, but every pc3200 module I have tried so far has failed me and the 3.3v spec makes me think that this laptop will not cut it with that Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
