Memory Installation Fact Sheet 2.5.4

QuestionAnswer
True or false, The best way to get compatible memory is to check the motherboard compatibility information, read the motherboard documentation, or use an online tool that scans your computer for compatible memory modules? True
Memory packaging and capacity must match what is supported by the motherboard True
True or false, You can add single memory modules to computers that use SDRAM and DDR including DDR-2 and DDR-3? True
True or false, most computers that use Rambus memory require that you add modules in pairs? True
True or false, the total capacity of memory that you can install in your system is limited by The number of memory slots on the motherboard? True
True or false, the total capacity of memory that you can install in your system is limited by The maximum total capacity that can be installed. For example, most systems will have a maximum of between 3 and 16 GB of RAM? True
True or false, the total capacity of memory that you can install in your system is limited by The maximum module capacity. For example, the motherboard might only be able to accept up to 2 GB or 4 GB modules? True
True or false, the total capacity of memory that you can install in your system is limited by The maximum amount of memory that can be addressed/used by the operating system. A 32-bit operating system can use 3-4 GB of memory, and more for 64-bit systems? True
True or false, you can install more than 4 GB of memory in a system that uses a 32-bit operating system; however, the operating system will only be able to use between 3-4 GB of that memory? True
True or false, most memory modules include an SPD (Serial Presence Detect) chip that identifies its frequency? True
True or false, the BIOS uses the information inside the SPD chip to set the frequency automatically? True
True or false, you can install slower memory in the motherboard, but this will degrade performance? True
True or false, if you mix faster and slower modules, all memory will operate at the slowest module installed? True
True or false, you can install faster memory in the motherboard, but it will only operate up to the maximum supported by the motherboard? True
True or false, If the BIOS does not configure memory to run at its highest rated speed, verify that the motherboard supports that speed? True
True or false, If the BIOS does not configure memory to run at its highest rated speed you might be able to update the BIOS to support faster memory? True
True or false, If the BIOS does not configure memory to run at its highest rated speed The SPD on the memory is often set below the maximum rating for the memory? True
True or false, if the BIOS does not configure memory to run at its highest rated speed, you might need to manually configure the speed and timing settings for the memory if the motherboard allows you to do this? True
True or false, most desktop motherboards do not support ECC or buffered memory? True
True or false, some motherboards require ECC or buffered memory? True
True or false, memory modules with ECC have extra memory chips on the module, typically 9 modules instead of 8? True
True or false, if the number of chips is divisible by 3 or 5, the module is likely ECC memory? True
True or false, do not mix ECC and non-ECC memory in a system? True
True or false, referring to how memory is grouped into a single or two banks, most newer motherboards support both single- and double-sided memory, however, you should verify compatibility before purchasing? True
True or false, memory modules are very sensitive to ESD, you take proper steps to prevent ESD? True
True or false, install memory in the correct slot? True
True or false, although several memory slots might be open, some system boards require that you use specific slots? True
True or false, check the system board documentation for details regarding the installation slots for memory? True
True or false, for many systems, to install memory, start with the first bank. The first memory bank is often closest to the processor? True
True or false, on some systems, when installing memory, you should fill each bank in order? True
True or false, align the memory before inserting, and do not force the module in place? True
True or false, most memory is keyed to prevent it from being installed backwards or in incompatible slots? True
True or false, most RAM is held in place with small tabs on either end. To remove RAM from a motherboard, push the tabs down to rotate them back, then pull the RAM straight up? True
True or false, for Rambus memory (RIMMs), add a continuity module in all empty RIMM slots? True
True or false, most Rambus memory must be installed in pairs? True
True or false, for a dual (or triple) channel configuration, modules must be installed in matching sets (capacity and speed), preferably of the same manufacturer and model? True
True or false, for a dual (or triple) channel configuration,You can typically use different capacity modules between sets. For example, you can use two 1 GB modules as one set, and two 512 MB modules in the second set? True
True or false, for a dual (or triple) channel configuration, install modules in the slots specified in the motherboard documentation? True
True or false, for a dual (or triple) channel configuration, many motherboards color the slots, with slots used within a set having the same color? True
True or false, if you install single memory modules, the system will continue to use the memory, but cannot use the memory in dual-channel mode? True
True or false, following installation, power on the system and check for errors? True
True or false, most BIOS programs include a memory count that displays the total amount of system memory? True
True or false, if the memory counter does not count the proper amount of memory, you might have installed the memory incorrectly or you may have a faulty memory module? True
True or false, if the BIOS generates an error between 200 and 299, the error is a memory error? True
True or false, most systems will configure memory settings (frequency, voltage, and timing including latency) automatically based on information inside the SPD chip? True
True or false, when necessary, edit the BIOS to manually configure memory settings True
