I have a DRAM and a SDRAM.
I am using DRAM, but is there any possibility that I can also use SDRAM my computer?

On some transitional mainboards this was possible, but never recommended. Use one or the other to prevent memory errors. State your mfg/mdl. for more info.

It depends, but most likely not.  Use this free program to tell use what your motherboard manfacturer is and we will let you know.

Like they said, sometimes you can, but not a good idea because they take different voltages and most mobo's will only let you set one voltage or the other.

NO, Although you may have both types of RAM slots on your motherboard, you can only use 1 or the other.
You CANNOT use both together.
This also applies to other motherboards with 2 different types of RAM slots.
Eg: 72pin RAM and 168pin SDRAM on the same board. Only 1 type can be used at a time.
