Use of Value Select memory


Recommended Posts

I have a Dell Dimension 5150 system with 1GB RAM. I would like to add an additional 2GB. The System Select search says I should use p/n CMSS1GB-533. Can I use Value Select RAM VS1GB533D2? Is there a difference in these two part numbers?

First do not mix these modules with any 512MBs or 256MBs. Try the following:


1. Remove all RAM

2. Power on system

3. Let it run for 20-30 seconds(system may power off prior to 20secs)

4. Remove AC

5. Only install the Corsair RAM

6. Check if system is stable
