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

no, I am replacing what I have. This notebook has two memory slots, filled with the above listed ram with 256mb sticks. So I will be removing both and replacing them with two 512 sticks. I just cannot get any two sticks to install.


So, since my two 256mb ddr400, 3-4-4-8, 2.5 volt sticks work, are there any Corsair sticks that will work?


You have

VS512SDS400 PC3200 512MB 64Mx64 200 SODIMM


(no voltage listed)


VS512SDS333 PC2700 512MB 64Mx64 200 SODIMM


(no voltage listed)


My guess is that nothing you have is going to work, is that correct?
