Upgrading old machine
Posted 09 January 2013 - 06:48 AM
It only has 1 gb of RAM & a pentium 4 3.00 ghz, and an old copy of XP.
I'm thinking that if I can add another gig of memory I can maybe put Win 7 on it & let my son use it for basic web surfing - but not sure if I can add RAM.
The specs say
Up to 8 GB of DDR2 533 MHz ECC (with 2 GB DIMM availability expected in July 2005); or
DDR2 667 MHz ECC (4 GB max.); or
DDR2 533 MHz non-ECC (1 GB max.)
I'm taking that to mean I can install up to 4 GB of DDR2 667 if its ECC & only 1 GB if its non-ECC - is that correct?
Looking at memory on NewEgg - some of the memory says 'ECC: no', the rest say nothing about ECC.
If a memory stick doesn't say 'ECC: no' does it mean it is ECC?
Is there any RAM I can use for this old box to get to 2 or 4 GB?
Any advice is appreciated -

"The HP xw4300 uses DDR2-533 ECC memory technology for memory configurations above 4 GB."
"three types allows you to choose the memory speed and configuration that meets your price and performance needs."
Crucial offer 2GB Non-ECC DIMMs guaranteed compatible:
which indicates they're certain it will be fine, which is what I would expect.
