Has always confounded me. I have advanced, though, through arduous study, to have a glimmering of the difference.

RAM Compatibility

We have had to deal with RAM compatibility issues since we went from soldered in RAM to plug-in RAM.

The biggest issue we run across now is that newer RAM designs are of a higher density than the motherboard or BIOS were designed for. The newer RAM just will not work in older computers.

Go to the Crucial web site and verify what RAM is recommended for your systems.
