I purchased (2) 1Gb DDR333 PC2700 unbuffered, nonECC 128mgX64 for my computer after having it scanned by crucial. (I did not buy the memory from them). The first sticks that came, were totally wrong and i sent for a replacement. The new sticks are recognized by my computer, but the computer will not allow for my son to play his warcraft game.(it came up with a fatal error?) I have also tried one stick only, which caused the computer to reboot a few times. So, the original is back in and doing well.

The new sticks I have have 16 chips on each side vs the 8 that most chips have. I could not find a picture of this type of stick at all on the web. I'm not sure how to tell if it is low density, or even if it is what I ordered? It has a sticker on it that says "1G PC2700 UDIMM 2RX8. It is only a sticker though, so who knows. I hope someone can tell me if this is a "real" 1GB chip and how to make sure it is what I ordered. It has a few numbers on it, but not a lot.

Thanks sooooo much!!

I would say that you have high-density modules, where low-density would be the preference.

Well...I've learned over the years...it's the willingness to try to help...that's leads to learning more about what probably should have been suggested. I'm not always as thorough, it's not always as easy to find an answer :thumbsup:.

But, I try :huh:.

"1G PC2700 UDIMM 2RX8" I think is low density RAM.

What is the brand/model and motherboard info if available?
