Hi everyone, =)
Just a couple questions.

I have an older computer in my basement, Is it possible to take out its memory slots and put them in my other computer? My current computer has a spot to add two more slots.

There is also memory in my older computer, It's probably not compatible with my current compter. But if the slots fit would that make the memory compatible?

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.

I don't know if I missed it in that link but, I need to know if I can mix(put in different computer) slots that hold the ram.

Hi Stealthy Maine, and welcome to BleepingComputer.

Different generations of RAM have different numbers of pin, not all will fit in the same motherboard.

Why don't we look at this in a different way, what computers do you have, and which computers would you like to put the modules in?

Family and loved ones will always be a priority in my daily life.  You never know when one will leave you.

I'd like to put them in a Compaq presario, and take them out a NEC. Though I already think there not compatible.

If you provide us with the specific makes and models we can let you know if they are compatible.

You could open the case...remove one of the memory modules properly...and take a look at it. Write down all data that you see and post it here.

Sometimes there is nothing to be read, but...more often than not, there is a description of the memory module.

Reinsert the module.

Of course, turn the system power off before removing the module and be careful not to disrupt anything inside the computer case.
