Scott wants to add 512MB of PC100 SDRAM to his desktop system. His system has a 100MHz motherboard and currently has 64MB of non-ECC SDRAM in the system. What else does he need to know before installing?
Can his system handle that much RAM.
Steve adds a second 128-megabyte 168-pin DIMM to his PC, which should bring the total RAM in the sytem up to 256MB. The PC has a Pentium III 600 MHz processor and three 168-pin DIMM slots on the motherboard. When he turns on the PC, however, only 128 megabytes of RAM show up during the RAM count. Which of the following is most likely to be the problem?
Steve failed to seat the RAM properly.
Of the following choices, which (FPM RAM, EDO RAM, ECC RAM, SDRAM.) of the fastest RAM you could put on a motherboard running at 133MHz?
Joey has a Pentium motherboard with four 72-pin SIMM slots and two 168-pin DIMM slots. How many 72 pins SIMMs does he need to install to fill a bank of RAM?
2. The 64-bit data bus of the Pentium requires 64-bit-wide RAM. Each 72-pin SIMM can only provide 32 bits of data at a time, so the motherboard requires two to make a bank.
SDRAM commonly comes in which of the following RAM packages?
168-pin DIMM
What are the standard pin sizes for SO-DIMMs?
72-pin , 144-pin
Fred has a Pentium motherboard with two 72-pin SIMM slots and two 168-pin DIMM slots. How many DIMMs does it take to fill a single bank of RAM on this motherboard?
What does ECC DRAM provide that regular DRAM does not?
ECC DRAM enables error checking and correcting.
Zelda has a motherboard with two 168-pin DIMM slots. One slot is filled with a 64-megabyte DIMM, but the other is empty. When she tries to install a second 168-pin DIMM, she finds that it will not snap into place, due to a raised bump in the DIMM socket. Bill argues that the bump is a defect in the socket and Zelda shoud file it down. Andrew argues, in contrast, that she probably has a defective DIMM with the notch cut in the wrong spot. Who is most likely correct?
Only Bill is correct.
Which of the following(60Mhz, 66MHz, 100MHz, 133MHz) SDRAM speeds would not work on a 66 MHz motherboard?
