Ram question

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi, i have a old computer which i'm trying to bring back to life its a hp computer model m7250n it has 1 GB of ram 2 x 512 and i just installed one stick of ram single 1 GB ddr2 of course pc2-6400 and the computer booted just fine with windows 7, i was also able to run WEI without errors, now the question here is should i leave that ram installed or will it damage the system? since the ram supported is pc2-3200.

You won´t damage it , you are just running 400mhz (3200) with 800mhz
The only downside to it is, your 800 mhz will be slowed down to 400, your better off looking for another stick of 800.
edit : is your maximum for that MB 3200 speeds ? If so you may as well leave it in there as they will all be running at 400mhz
edit 2 are the timings and voltages the same ?
