Memory compatible ?

I need this: pc2 5300 x 1 gig

Will this work?  > 1GB Transcend JetRAM DDR2 PC2-5400 667MHz CL5 desktop memory module

Transcend JetRAM is a well established brand in computer memory upgrades. This single 1GB DDR2 667MHz memory module is a popular choice for consumers upgrading desktop computer systems with DDR2 memory. Designed for adding more memory to desktop computers using DDR2 memory at 667MHz (PC2-5400). This memory module is also suitable for systems using dual channel memory, when these modules are added in matching pairs.

 Technical details from Transcend:

 The JM667QLU-1G is a 128M x 64bits DDR2-667 Unbuffered DIMM. The JM667QLU-1G consists of 8pcs 128Mx8bits DDR2 SDRAMs in 68 ball FBGA packages and a 2048 bits serial EEPROM on a 240-pin printed circuit board. The JM667QLU-1G is a Dual In-Line Memory Module and is intended for mounting into 240-pin edge connector sockets.

 Synchronous design allows precise cycle control with the use of system clock. Data I/O transactions are possible on both edges of DQS. Range of operation frequencies, programmable latencies allow the same device to be
 useful for a variety of high bandwidth, high performance memory system applications.

PC2-5300 is another name for DDR2-667. It has a bandwidth of 5.3GB/sec (hence the 5300 part) and an effective front-side bus speed of 667MHz.

So any memory stick of type DDR2-667 will work, unless you need ECC memory (you probably don't).

HTH,
Dan

While it will probably work, you can do one final check here:

http://www.transcend-info.com/Support/Search/Compatibility.asp?Func1No=5&LangNo=0

Fill in the info for what it's needed for (motherboard model, or PC make/model) and it will return a list of compatible products. Better safe than sorry!

I'd say 8 out of 10. Checking the website though doesn't cost you any money?

10/10. The memory makers and the motherboard makers have to conform to certain standards.
As long as the standards are obeyed, the components will work together.

IME, I have not found a functional memory stick that will not work on a similar spec motherboard.

HTH,
Dan

I dont have the PC in front of me so I cant check.
I took a photo of memory module (removed as was faulty)
I think I might just ask EU for details of PC incase it was showing faulty for mem check. Perhaps faulty as PC didnt like its spec?

If it's a laptop, you need another type of memory than for a desktop. I.e. you need a SODIMM, not a DIMM.
Or, in plain English, you need a shorter stick of memory.

Sorry, did not realize that HP sells also PC's under the Pavilion brand :)

If you need extra memory for this, the memory from OP should work. It came with PC2-5300 DDR2 SDRAM memory.

Yes, that memory kit is compatible.
Question: what is the purpose? How much RAM do you have now and how much do you want to have?

You want to add memory to the PC? I mean, you already have 1-3 DIMM's and you want to add extra?

If so, it's worth looking for the same type of memory, cause it will all run at the speed of the slowest DIMM.

If not, I would look for the faster type: DDR2-800. They're virtually the same price as the 667 memory.
