Jeeze dude...yur bustin my balls here...
He never said it only uses DDR. I am not stupid, and I know PC8000 does not exist in DDR...
Ur like that geeky dude who works in IT and pretends to control everyone's world in the office, and runs around fixing problems, acting like it is Top Secret what you do, right? Do you actually help people on this site, or do you just wait to make posts of how superior you are?
Now, where is that ignore button?
Hi there CrazyIvan007,
Being a few years old, and the fact the OP has already run a scan and received a result, it's highly unlikely this computer will support both DDR and DDR2... Nobody is accusing you of being stupid. If you know PC8000 does not exist in DDR, then you should know that technically
it does not exist at all. PC2
-8000 does exist, with the 2 indicating DDR2.
Whether or not you understand all this, or even the OP, is not the point. There may be some members (or even guests) who eventually read this thread, who have absolutely no clue about RAM, and are looking for helpful information. Therefore, it's up to everyone, at all times, to post as helpful and technically correct information as possible. As a Tech Apprentice at this site, I am in the same boat as stettybet0 - we are being watched by the forum moderators to ensure our technical ability is top-notch, and, pending approval, we eventually will be offered a Tech Staff position. It is imperative that anybody in a high-level position is always technically correct.
All this talk about whether or not a 1GB module will be compatible in this motherboard is quite easily achieved - we just need some more information.
Quite simply, from another person's perspective, stettybet0 has been quite helpful so far in this thread. I also liked your point about the PSU, this is a common problem from OEM desktops, I've experienced this myself before.
And I don't know exactly what you intend to achieve by posting that question last, but you'll find the ignore controls here
To the OP, can you please post the Make and Model of your desktop computer (you said Compaq in post 1)? From this, we should be able to find out all information needed.
