Help identify ram

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
My school gave me a dell poweredge 4600 server, and I've been tinkering with it, trying to make it work.

There are 2 removable ram trays, which are pc1600 (DDR?), and I have 2gb installed as of now (4x 512mb).

However today I removed both trays and found what looks like a ram slot, but I am not sure what type.

Here is a picture of the ram trays:

Here is a picture of the ram slot on the server board:

They are definately different. Does anybody know what the second one is? That way I can know what to look for back at my tech school.

The first picture is of RAM slots, it would be DDR ECC RAM compatible. Look up a manual to see how big of a dimm you can use (I think it's 1GB max).

The second picture has a RAID dimm (the one with the white clips on either side) and I think those two black slots are for MultiChassis EtherChannel (MEC).

The first picture is of a card that the ram goes in, and slides into the big black ones on the top of the second picture.

Is the raid dimm needed for the server to start? I keep getting an error of no memory installed.

I pulled the SCSI drive from another server (not used anymore) is it possible that it was used in a raid and will not be recognized?

Really, I am just trying to achieve post right now.

Will it affect anything that the raid battery was removed? The batteries were so corroded that the connecter wires fell off when I unplugged it from the board (from moving the wires)
